      Fantastic!Simple Life Cliff Resort was great. The staff was lovely. The location was amazing! The rooms were great! I would definitely stay here again. But for the cost, the bed could be more comfortable, the AirCon should be updated (worked but not great) and the WiFi was spotty. We all kept getting kicked off and having to re-sign in. Also for the cost, WiFi should have worked by the pool directly in front of the room. I’ve stayed at other places where the WiFi worked on the beach.

Thai Food from the only hotel restaurant is prepared at fair prices and very tasty, the only downside it closes at 5pm. Otherwise there are plenty of restaurants along the beach.

      Great location, awesome view, basic bathroom, annoyances at nightThe location of the hotel is great: just a few minutes walk from the main area with all the restaurants, nightlife, cafes and massage places. We stayed in the room with sea view. The room is spacious and the balcony is awesome. You can watch the sunset from there. The welcome fruit basket is very generous and delicious. The bathroom is big but mainly empty, it feels like a missed opportunity. Water was often cold. One big annoyance is that the bathroom has a window which you can't close and through that window you get the waterfall noise of the pool all night and the sunlight of the sunrise directly into your bed. There's no curtain to prevent this. The breakfast is a bit too expensive for what they offer. Overall we enjoyed our stay but the room feels a bit overpriced for the amenities.

      Great hotel. Stayed in the two bedroom suite facing the ocean. The pool is beautiful and the breakfast was decent. The only thing was i had two roaches in my room. However it is rainy season. They were in the living room dead so i never saw them crawling around which was good. I would still recommend this hotel out of the other places. It is modern , clean and great location.

      This is our second time staying here. And I will continue to stay here every time I come to Koh Tao. Always clean. Amazing big rooms. Only a short walk into town. Close enough to walk in less than 10 minutes but far enough away from the noise. It’s such an easy walk. One road along sairee beach and your in town. Parking for scooters also. Highly recommend

      A Beautiful Oasis”

      Stayed in the Deluxe Sea view and loved the view of the pool, Sairee Beach and the 3 small island...the super king bed and 4 soft pillows were heaven and glass around 2 sides of room made it feel like we were on a ship at sea with all the lights at night from the beach and boats. Staff at reception were humorous and sweet esp Ann and Jul, Thank you. The pools were immaculate and the palm trees made the whole resort feel tropical and shady. Breakfast was served at a fabulous cafe and the food was superb, a very generous variety with a couple of awesome Thai dishes. Sairee is a vibrant town with picture perfect postcard photos and many great bars and restaurants on the beach so Simple Life was a brilliant resort to stay in for it's location. Couldn't fault anything and will always come back when visiting Koh Tao. Make sure you go snorkelling and stay a couple of nights at Aow Leuk Bay. The deep turquoise crystal clear water and soft white sand with a fabulous restaurant were Amazing! 🌴🐠🐚

      Relax Stay by the sea”

      I like the resort as it has the modern design concept. 5-10mins slow walk to restaurants and town. Also very near to the pier. We spend 2 nights here. When we first arrived, we saw that they were still building new buildings, we saw some old buildings like dormitory, we were startled at first as we thought out resort was... but when we arrived at front reception, we were relieved. Its very new, clean and beautiful. Room was ready in awhile but we din have to wait long. 1 draw back was that they din have microwave oven which they indicated that it was available for the room we booked. As we have been buying convenient food from 7-11, we couldn’t really cook them. Booked a 2-bedroom beach front villa. Superb view. The sea is just outside my bedroom window. Pool was just outside out room too. The other thing is the bathroom, wasn’t able to find the heat control thus every direction I turn, its cold water. Very cosy room and enjoy the stay. The breakfast was included but selection was limited. For the small resort, perhaps they could only do so. As we were rushing to the pier on check out day, the chef and staffs were nice to let us packet some bread to eat as we cant sit there to enjoy. Transfer to pier was not complimentary though, 50b per pax. Good service. Will stay there again if ever to visit Ko Tao again.

      Probably, one of the nicest small hotel on the island”

      The location was perfect, just in the peaceful area between Mae Haad and Sairee. Just a short walk to both, but far away from noise during the night. Rooms are modern and spacious and mine was overlooking pool from one huge balcony and had a sea view from other smaller balcony. Although rooms are very big, the closet is too small to keep your clothes for more than a few days. Pool area is really nice and pools are well maintained. Breakfast was nice. Staff were friendly and willing to assist. Daily cleaning was fair, but could be improved. Note that rooms are rather expensive and you get less for the money in comparison to e.g. Bangkok, but you obviously pay for the location. My biggest remark goes to water in the bathroom. Water pressure is very low (could be the issue related to the whole island) and you cannot regulate temperature. Sometimes (e.g. during the day) it was too hot for a shower and on other times too cold (e.g. night). Otherwise, very nice hotel on Koh Tao.

      We upgraded our budget for a few luxurious nights here and very worth it. We originally booked 2 nights and were able to extend to another 2 with reception at the same price despite the website showing double cost rooms. Walkable from the pier and close to nightlife, shops and restaurants. You could here party music in the evening but nothing too loud that you cannot sleep.

      The back of our room faced a club and bars (back of room faced north). Although they were fair down the beach, the music kept us up pretty late. We packed earplugs so finally around 1am, we found them and managed to fall asleep. Rooms are spacious and clean, had a nice balcony facing the pool, large bathroom, comfortable bed. We only stayed here 1 night but it was great and we would definitely stay again! It's in a perfect location, at the quiet end of Sairee Beach but still close enough to walk everywhere.

      This is at the very end of Sairee Beach so you get a little bit of seclusion while still being in the midst of the action. The facilities are excellent with large, up-to-date rooms. We loved their breakfast buffet. Staff was also excellent. We would for sure stay here again.
