Very Good8.0
Good hotel
Good hotel with very good service, but it's a little old and not well kept. The hotel is very good for its price.

Bugs Crawling all Over the Bed
The hotel is in a great location, and looked nice from the outside. Unfortunately when we tried to relax after a long bus/ferry trip we noticed the bed was crawling with bugs and there were blood stains all over the sheets. We asked to change rooms, and the second room was much cleaner, but after seeing something like what we saw in the first room, I'd never stay here again.

Loved it!!
The ladies at the front desk make staying there so much fun! They are knowledgeable, speak very good English, and have amazing senses of humor. Really enjoyed every interaction. Pool was nice, with both shady and sunny side. It seems like it would be crazy noisy in the room, as it's right downtown sairee, but it's actually very peaceful.

Good Enough
Simple Life Resort is basic accommodation. For a decent price you get your own room, AC and a pretty helpful staff. I ended up moving to the Simple Life Talay as I was doing a Dive Course and feel their other property is better - rooms are smaller but newer and feel cleaner. Overall, Simple Life Resort is a fine place to stay but not work more than 40$ a night.

not so great
The room was not very clean and there was a sewage smell near the side of the pool, although the pool itself seemed clean. The location was convenient to shops and restaurants and it was a short walk to the beach. Tha staff was very nice. The breakfast was not so good, food on the buffet was cold and the eggs wee definitely not cooked to order as they were cold as well. I would not return to this hotel.
