Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Regardless of the stormy season, I decided to take a holiday on the island of Koh Tao.
To get there you can contact the Lomprahya Ferry agency in Bangkok or Hua Hin.
Unfortunately, we had to take the 60 seater speedboat instead of the publicized Catamaran from the beach town of Chumpon on a bumpy sea but arrive safely at the pre-booked Simple Life Resort.
My room was upgraded to a king size bedand faced the swimming pool. The room was very clean and equipped with air-conditioning, a fridge and a TV. Wifi available. English Breakfast was included at their roadside restaurant. The reception was very friendly and helpful. It is only a 3 minute walk to the long stretched beach with crystal clear Gulf of Siam water. The seaside road is filled with restaurants, coffee shops, massage parlors and tattoo shops. The food choice is enormous. I stayed 10 days and enjoyed every day of my stay!
I will be back!

Very good location. Staff were lovely and very helpful, as were the restaurant staff. The breakfast was not great though and there was always a lot of flies. The cocktail and dinner food was good. The rooms were basic but clean so perfect for a short stay.
The pool area really needs updated and cleaned. One man (not sure if he was staff or guest) washed his snorkels and diving suit in the pool water!!

I stayed in this resort while visiting my brother. The staff here were amazing. Kung was a great host along with the rest of the staff including the restaurant staff. Everyone was so welcoming and friendly and always made sure we were good and had what we needed at all times. They were very attentive the entire stay. They really made us feel at home and when I come back to Koh Tao Thai will be my go to spot always. They have everything you need at this resort, amazing food, scooter rentals, book tours, plus many more things. The pool was nice the rooms are also very nice and are always kept clean. The food at the restaurant was next level. I strongly recommend this resort to anyone looking for a safe and friendly environment. Thank you Kung and staff for all the care during our stay and making sure we were okay!

Horrible. One of the worst resorts on the island. The most disgusting staff I have seen in a hotel. The cashier was picking his nose as we paid the bill at the restaurant. Looked like he was drugged out.
We booked for five nights and stayed one. Would avoid. Better to sleep on the beach.

This hotel is in a great location, walking distance to all of the main bars and shops.. Ohoo, behind the desk was so welcoming and helped with any of our problems straight away which contributed to the comfort of our stay. The pool was lovely and clean and overall it’s great value for money! Possibly one of the best hotels we stayed in on our trip

Great room with pool view. Staff are really pleasant and helpful. However restaurant only offers 2 choices at breakfast, rice soup or American style. This gets boring after a few days. Hotel is clean and in a good location for shops and sairee beach. Nice pool. Many things on island closed due to Covid

We really enjoyed our 3 night stay here. The room was clean and spacious, and the pool was really refreshing, with a good number of sun loungers around the pool for relaxing. The resort is in a good location within Sairee village, and the price was decent for what was provided! The staff were very friendly. Would recommend!

This hotel is quite good without being perfect. It is a little run down but my room was clean. The wifi was ok but not always super quick. The location is good near the beach and action. My room didn't have a kettle which was annoying as it stated it does on agoda. Staff are all pleasant. The pool isn't super clean.

Great location/ short walk to the beach and main strip of bars. Nice room with everything you need. Had a free shuttle pick up from the pier and arrived to friendly staff. Restaurant attached so we had free breakfast and had lunch there. Lots to choose from. Pool area is nice but shaded half the day

My husband and I stayed here, and it was nothing like the advertised experience. The customer service was terrible, the rooms start smelling like raw sewage mid day (they attempt to cover the smell by using intensely toxic cleaning supplies). When we showed up, we were put in a room with no windows!

We were especially disappointed because it was rated three stars - obviously they are padding these reviews. Pathetic.

Also, the breakfast is nasty, with flies in the milk.

Consider yourself warned!

Hi. Can you tell me if interconnecting rooms are available or 2 bedroom family style suits to suit a family of 4.

Hi! I can't really answer your question, I've been with 4 friends but we were in 2 different rooms and not interconnecting each other. I think you should email the hotel and ask them. Most of the staff there speak English. I hope this answer help you.
