I stayed 5 nights in a standard boutique room.
The location of Simple Life Resort is very good. Across from the main walking streets and about a few minutes walk away from Sairee beach. I hadn't been to Koh Tao before and did find the area we were staying very busy. There are lots of bars and restaurants full of western travellers. There are loads of 'happy hour" bars and buckets sold! So be aware! The main pier is about a 15min taxi ride away and cost about 400bht but that can be spilt between 4.
The room we stayed in was very large and had a massive bed! The room had a/c, a TV, fridge and sofa. The room was clean and the bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was also clean and had a warm shower. We did get a awful smell from the bathroom every now and again but it went away quickly and was nothing that effected our stay.
The room had temperamental WIFI, but like the receptionist said, as we booked in, we were staying on an island so the WIFI isn't the best anywhere!
The rate of the room included breakfast. Which we thought was good. You get a cooked breakfast and can choose how you have your eggs and there is also a buffet of fruits, pancakes and Thai food to help yourself too.
Staff were always helpful and friendly and spoke excellent English.
We found Koh Tao's accommodation to be expensive but for £45 per night, I thought Simple Life Resort offers reasonable value for money.
