We didn't book anything when coming to the island so when we first arrived, we were staying at the hotel across the street in a horrible upstairs apartment room! We decided to switch in the morning and so we walked over to the Simple Life (across the street, so no beach access) and it was perfect! Their pool was open for much long than the other hotel, they were willing to check us in early and she gave us a discount because we were staying right next to the restaurant. The room next to the restaurant was a little noisier, but it closed at 10:30pm and we could pick up some wifi from the restaurant when normally I don't think the rooms had wifi.
Breakfast in the morning was good - just your average egg, bacon, toast, sausage and then you got to go up and chose from a buffet your cereal, fruit, yogurt, Thai breakfast... Etc.
The reception was great, I was using the wifi (and getting eaten alive by mosquitos) and the lady at the reception gave me some of her bug repellant lotion! They also helped us book our bus to Bangkok - for the exact same price as the ferry company had it posted so they didn't charge an extra fee for booking. Also, renting a motorbike is just right across the street for a reasonable price and the reception gave us a helpful map to find different places to go around the island to snorkel.
Little things like that are what made our experience as memorable as it was!
