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.

I enjoyed my stay at Simple Life Cliff View Resort so much I ended up extending my stay for an extra night. I splurged on an ocean view room and was rewarded with one of the most gorgeous sunset views I've ever seen. The rooms are spacious and have very comfortable beds as well as hammocks and cushioned benches outside for lounging. The hotel is in a great location on the south end of Sairee beach within walking distance of restaurants and dive shops. They are affiliated with Simple Life Divers which is located less than a 5 minute walk away which I would also highly recommend. The only downsides I can think of is that the reception area closes early in the evening and the water in the shower takes a long time to heat up, but these are relatively minor inconveniences. Overall I'd definitely stay here again while visiting Koh Tao!

We are staying at this beautiful location currently having an amazing holiday
We are in the delux sea view room( 2 next to each other ) for my family of 5 - 2 adults and 3 teenage kids
The rooms are great ,plenty of room with an extra bed for my daughter in one of the rooms
2 big balconies that you can open the adjoining door to make into a huge balcony between the two rooms
Lovely hot showers and fantastic sunset views
The tiered pools are lovely
We were not expecting too much for breakfast with the previous reviews so we’re pleasantly surprised . Nice fruit , sausage , bacon and a lovely lady who will cook you omelette or fried eggs with toast . The only negative comment I have is the tea is totally undrinkable , stewed and cold.
Location perfect,beach only a few minute walk away and loads of lovely restaurants to walk to really close by
We also booked the boat trip round the island that the hotel recommended absolutely fantastic and I have reviewed this separately
Highly recommend this hotel

Stayed here for a holiday from our holiday(?) just to relax. The room sat over the water, with large opening windows and a balcony, giving amazing views. The pool was decently sized, with sun chairs on decking near the water and a second space with stairs leading down into the ocean. Very relaxing and peaceful, would stay again!

We booked a room with Simple Life Resort 1 month before we arrive. (Yes I know that’s a different branch but this review is for BOTH resorts) We have the confirmation, the payment on the credit card goes through. We arrive at 7pm in the evening the day of our booking. We are informed that they overbooked and do not have a room for us. They can not issue us a refund and we must contact the booking site. The lady explained that she cancelled our booking 1 week ago, however, we were never contacted about this. She claims the booking site is responsible to let us know this but upon calling the booking site they said they were never informed of a cancellation by the hotel.
Unfortunately, since it is the busy season, there is nothing available.
The hotel has sister hotels (Simple Life Cliff Resort) and happens to have 1 family room available. It has only one bathroom and two beds. There is another man in the same situation and their only solution is to have us stay in the same room together. They only can book us one night and then we are in our own to find the other nights and book them. The lady explained that we must contact the reception of the new hotel the next morning to book any remaining nights - if they have room. We also still have to pay the same amount for another hotel in a different location with no breakfast included. This entire process took OVER 2.5 HOURS. The lady was also gossiping to other guests about our situation, while booking those guests extra nights when they requested. She also complained about having to pay the housekeeping staff overtime because they had to stay and clean the room for us and made it seem as though we were a huge inconvenience to her. After trying to explain our frustration that we still had to pay the same amount, stay with a random man, didn’t have breakfast, were in a completely different area, just waited 2.5 hours to get into a room, and don’t have any further place to stay for the duration of our trip, she showed no compassion and gave us no compensation except a 200 baht discount on the room we had to share with the man.
While we waited we kept being informed that it wouldn’t be much longer so we did not go in search of food since they kept informing us that we would get to our room soon. By the time we got to our room and settled in, it was 10:30pm and almost everything was closed and if it wasn’t it was a long walk away. Therefore we went to bed without supper.
Luckily the Simple Life Cliff Resort was able to book us rooms for the duration of our intended stay however the room smells SO bad of sewer that we had to air freshen our room, leave the doors and windows wide open and even move rooms. Nothing helped as both rooms smelt horrific. The beds were also rock solid and the blanket was an extra large towel.
Our experience with Simple Life in general was not good at all and I would not recommend to anyone.
However - I’m sure of you booked a seafront room and didn’t have it cancelled on you it would be lovely.

I stayed at this resort for two weeks in November of 2021. The facility is well kept and the pool is clean. There is a nice rocky beach area that good for snorkeling. There is no restaurant at the resort but there are bars and restaurants nearby. The front desk manager, Haymar, was a great help and she assisted me with a variety of issues including taxi services, where to eat, how to get to Immigration etc. The best rooms are the second floor rooms overlooking the ocean. Some of the best views I have ever had were from these rooms.

I stayed in 4 different rooms while I was there and the only issue I had was the doors all needed some work. The locks were difficult which made them hard to close so many guests would slam the doors shut, very annoying.

I have been in Thailand for two months and the Simple Life Cliff View has been one of my favorite places so far. I would highly recommend it.

Cockroaches in the room, doors don’t even close massive gap for bugs to get in, pool is so murky and dirty cannot get in it - water is being poured through a net so clearly dirty. Hotel looked unreal in the photos but it is really rundown and been the worst stay over the whole of Thailand. We have seen much better hotels and hostels on this island with cheaper prices

Nice hotel, would stay again. We booked a double sea view room and had 201 which was lovely and the view was amazing. The beds are really comfortable and the room was huge. We sunbathed at the very bottom of the pool area which is open on top of the cliff, the breeze made it a lot more comfortable to sit in. I do agree with previous posts unfortunately that the pool water doesn’t look clean so we didn’t use the pool.
We do not hire scooters and found that to be a bit of a problem from this hotel. We tried to get a taxi from reception to John Sewan view point but we’re advised the taxi had gone shopping. When we asked how we could get a regular taxi we were told we would have to go to the pier to get one! One of our party is unable to walk long distances so this wasn’t an option for us. Obviously if you’re happy with a scooter this is not an issue.
The hotel is less than 5 minutes walk to restaurants and about 15-20 minutes into the centre of Sairee Beach.
All in all, we did like this hotel and would stay again.

Magnificent location with breathtaking views of the sea, infinity pool on several levels, facing the sea, close to nightlife without the inconveniences. The rooms are clean and pleasant. The staff is very attentive, and PHOO and HAYMAR will be at the reception to welcome you in a divine way. We hope they will still be there next year to welcome us!!! A big thank you to both and their colleagues

Really great instructors and a genuine family vibe here at Simple Life. Truly the best place to get scuba certified on the island! The dive shop is also in a great location and very easy to navigate your way around local restaurants and bars. Overall 10/10 experience. Join Simple Life Divers!

Built on a spit of coast overlooking the warm blue gulf of Thailand, this wonderful hotel offers fantastic large rooms with all the amenities and great air con. The pool runs down the middle of the complex with a sunbathing deck at the bottom. There’s steps down to little private beach, which is great for snorkelling and swimming from. The breakfast is ok, enough to start your day. The only down side to this place is, there’s no bar, so if you want a cold beer or drinks, you’ll need to walk down a small hill to the shop. Apart from that, you can’t fault the place, it’s spotless. £65 per room per night with breakfast.👌👌

I can’t say how far exactly, but we’re taking about 5-10 minutes; something very walkable and enjoyable. The location is very good.
