We wouln't stay there again. We had pre-booked three nights, as part of a dive course package. Our first room was really dirty, so we asked to change rooms shortly after we arrived. (Travelling for a long time, we're used to budget accomondation and certainly not picky...) When we asked politely, the lady at the reception seemed annoyed but let...

The room was full of ants and smelled of sewer. Wi-fi does not work at all. Very ignorant and hostile staff! There was always 6-7 ladies sitting in the restaurant browsing Facebook at their own private working internet. The two male waiters were amazing though!!

My room was on the road side of the resort and very, very noisy. The room itself was clean enough (don't mind the cob webs on the walls & ceiling) but dark & dingy. I've been traveling for nearly a year now on a small budget & this is one of the most unpleasant stays I've had. The walls were...

We had triple with AC. Island/beach clean. They inform you that they clean very 2 days rather than every day, which is fine except they didn't clean at all. There is a broom in the room to help you keep the sand out. AC a must and perfect this time of year. We had ants invade one of our backpacks...

The room is clean, bathroom also. 450 bath per night is definitely the cheapest around, but you have no flush toilet, no toilet paper. The fan makes more noise than wind, and it's always really hot in the room. The Moskitos are free haha

We stayed there for three nights. The room was cheap and basic. Anyway, it was pretty clean. The location is excellent. 7-11 is right at the entrance (my favorite part). There are pharmacy, Roti stall, fruit stores, Yoga, etc. The restaurants is very good, authentic Thai taste with reasonable price. The view and decoration style are impressive. We would continue...

I stayed there three nights as part of a diving course. The room was basic, which is fine for me. But bathroom was quite disgusting and sheets were stained, I had the cheapest room with a fan that did not really work. It was cheap, so I can not complain.... The food in the restaurant was pretty basic. You get...

Our stay at Tropicana was very mixed for us. We experienced the rudeness of the staff as soon as we arrived after being pressured into booking 5 nights without seeing the room. When I asked to see the room and of course stay a night before deciding the lady at the desk was very off hand and rude. NOT a...

Tropicana was included in my diving with Ocean Sound Dive and Yoga (see separate review for how awesome OSDY is). The rooms are basic at best but definitely serve their purpose. The location on the beach is great - easy access to restaurants, yoga, tattoos and even a 7-11.
