Our stay at Simple Life was very nice. We stayed there for 5 nights and our room was very spacious, clean and comfortable. The swimming pool is lovely. There is massage parlour but it doesn't look too good and we didn't try it. The staff was very attentive to our needs and we were always greeted with a smile.

The only downside is the breakfast which leaves a lot to be desired. Its quality is poor and it is not varied, without counting the loud music that they put all day and all night...There are plenty of other restaurants in the area so we recommend eating elsewhere.

The rooms here are spacious and comfortable. The pool is cleam and easy to access. The staff were friendly and accomodating to us.

The included breakfast was great - one can order cooked food from the waiting staff or go to the self service buffet.

All-in-all, a pleasant and relaxing stay.

Stayed in a standard room for 3 nights. Really impressed with the service from staff. They were friendly, super organised and helpful. Best I have had on my trip so far. Standard rooms were pretty nice overall. Would definitely stay again. Only criticism was the free breakfast, which I didnt find all that nice, but im a bit of a picky eater.

The staff were beautiful, food perfect and room spotless. Everything we needed to re-charge our batteries with the kids. Staff were very helpful with organising things for us, the snorkelling was great and staff advice was good. We felt very welcome and were a little sad to leave!
Highly recommend, especially if you have children, very safe and friendly.

Hotel is average, over looking a few shanty looking homes on a building site. No privacy as balconies are all connected so everyone walking past day and night. Breakfast is included but is horrendous, cold eggs, streaky greasy bacon and ham and flies!! Awful. The pizza buffet night is good for the money though. Good wifi connection and safety dep box and transfers from pier.

I booked a standard room online for two nights. When we arrived we found that we were upgraded to a large boutique room at no extra cost. We decided to stay an extra night and was able to keep our same room. I was traveling with my mom so this was a nice bonus. The room was large and came with both a shower towel and a pool towel. They also provided shampoo and body wash. However, when the used up all the soaps they never replaced them which was a bummer. They also provided two free waters a day in the fridge. The bed was large and comfortable and the noise level was to a minimum. It seems part of the hotel is newer and some areas are still under construction. I can see how this can be unappealing but in the end I am sure it will be nice. The pool area is small but again there is a short walk to the beach so really no need. The front desk staff spoke fluent english and were very helpful. They recommended places to go and also places to stay away from. There is a massage/beauty parlor on site and they suggested to not go there because the lady was not very good. I thought that was very honest of them and really appreciated the advice.
The hotel provides free taxi to and from the pier 2 times. I thought this was a great and very nice of them. Breakfast is an option depending on your booking. If you can choose to save some money and not have the breakfast I would recommend that. It is not very good and you can find better in just a short walk.

Room Tip: The boutique rooms are situated in the back away from the main room which are quieter.
