We stayed in a superior room overlooking the pool. The room was lovely and big with a huge bathroom (with a urinal for the gents) and a good sized balcony. It was clean and was cleaned every day. Good air-con and great TV channels. We didn't interact much with the staff, but they seemed friendly and always smiled, though the cleaners were fairly grumpy.
Breakfast was ok and the chef would cook you your choice of omlette or fried eggs. everything else is a little bland and the sausage is awful. My girlfriend thought she'd be kind and slip a sausage to one of the local muts under the table, but even he turned his nose up at it! Local Thai food in the restaurant is great and the hotel give food offer vouchers on check in to use. I wouldn't advise eating anything but the Thai food as we ordered a chicken (we think) burger and nachos and they weren't too good at all.
The hotel is a few minutes from the beach, and also many bars and restaurants. It's a ten minute drive from the main pier, but they will pick you up in the hotel 4x4 if you arrange before hand.
In our opinion Koh Tao is the best island in Thailand with the nicest, cleanest waters. Simple Life was a great place to stay make our island visit complete.
