This place sucks and is way overpriced. Skip it! Head south to Freedom Beach.
A double bed room was around $80 for the night. While its right in the center of the island, I don't think that's a good thing. It's a small island which you can get around in by rented scooter ($6 a day) or taxi. That said, I went south to Freedom Beach. It's a lovely little area with lots of restaurants and bars. The vibe is easy and you'll probably love it.
Back to Simple Life. The room had horrific colors and decor. It was pretty beat up. The person who paints around there must be cross-eyed and do it with a brush attached to a limp foot. Terrible.
The free breakfast is nothing special at all. The toaster makes one piece of toast every 400 years. Start your toast 5 minutes before you order your food.
In short, go find a place at Freedom Beach. The TaaToh Resort looks nice, but it's pretty crappy too. Beautiful views from the ocean front bungalows. That's about it. Skip that one too.
A suggestion is, uh, it's called "Big Fish" or really similar. My friend stayed there. Clean. Great location. Nice rooms. Good price. Give them a look.
