We spent a week here at the end of November and didn't want to come home we enjoyed it that much. It was so chilled. We did all-inclusive. Good selection of food. There was plenty of seating and no waiting in queues for food. I only have a small criticism ref the food. the hot food was a little on the cool side. The sofa in the apartment was broken and a bit uncomfortable but that did not distract from a really good holiday. The staff were really nice and polite.

Dear Rafalcavan "Thank you very much for your review, we really appreciate it! As you well said in your review, we are a family hotel, and during the day, the pools are the main area for the families. As we are a very large resort, we are very proud to have available our adults only swimming pool and bar and also garden view rooms that are even quieter that the pool view ones. In total THB Tropical Island have 16 swimming pools (5 of them for kids) and a very funny spash park for the youngests of the family. We will share your kind words will all our team and we hope to see you again soon." Oscar Sepúlveda

The good The rooms were very clean and spacious , we were travelling with an 8 month old baby and the room had everything we required , microwave and kettle in the room were great. Maid service came everyday (well I think so). Pools were great as well , the smaller pools beside the apartment blocks were heated and they were ok to swim in . but the main pool was cold. No problem also getting a sun lounger around the pool. We were all inclusive , Breakfast was great a lot to choose from and was hot and fresh . Pool bar / snack bar was also good , I have seen previous reviews about long queues at the pool bar but there was not much queues when we stayed there. Snack bar served, chicken nuggets , chips , pizza's , burgers , hot dogs etc. Staff at this hotel were great and very friendly and hard working. The grounds / gardens in the hotel were also very clean and tidy. We had a meal in the pizza resatruant at the hotel which was nice. However it was a bit chaotic in there and staff seemed to be running around. The beer they serve at this hotel is San Miguel. Also there is about 6 or 7 cocktails you can get as part of all inclusive. The not so good As we were travelling with an 8 month old baby, I had contacted the hotel in advance to ask for a travel cot to be in our room , the hotel replied back to say the cot would be in the room. On arrival at the hotel I asked again about the Cot and receptionist told me the cot would be in the room . Arrived at our room after a long day travelling and no cot in the room , our 8 month baby was ready for a sleep. I phoned reception to ask for a cot to be taken to our room ASAP, one hour and one phone call later someone came with the cot. This was dissapointing and I thought the cot should have been in the room on arrival. The apartment blocks have a ground floor and first floor. We were given a room on the first floor. Which was fine with us. But on the first day we discovered the lift was not working on our block , which meant carrying a buggy and our baby up a flight of stairs everytime which was not ideal. Not sure why we were given a room on the first floor in a block where the lift was not working. In fairness to the hotel we asked to move rooms and the hotel did accomodate this for us and we moved to a room on the ground floor , which suited us much better. Evening meal , food was often cold or just warm and this was us going to the buffet when it first opened. Breakfast and snack bar food was good, but we did feel a bit disappointed by the evening meal food. And some of the food in the evening meal did not taste that great , but the plus point was that there was a lot of choice. TV , one of the reasons we booked this hotel was because the hotel offered English tv channels, our plan was to watch tv in the evening when our baby was asleep. But for over half the time we stayed there none of the english tv channels worked. Which was again a dissapointment. Overall we enjoyed our stay at the hotel and despite the not so good points we would stay again . Hopefully the evening meal can be improved.

Dear Guest, All the hotel staff thanks you for your comment, we are sorry that you had to change your room and that our buffet dinner was not to your liking, this buffet was changed and we removed all those dishes that our customers do not like, trying to make these dishes like all the nationalities that visit us, fortunately the problems with the TV channels have been solved. We apologise and hope to see you again at THB Tropical Island in the future and you will be able to see all the improvements that are being made to the hotel. THANKS Best regards

Overall the resort was clean and plenty of pools and a few splash parks for children (although we only went as a couple so we didn't make use of those!). We decided to go all inclusive as it's our first holiday in many years as a couple but the whole set up was just awful. I didn't expect table service but I walked into a giant school canteen where you have to scoot from one end to the other to be able to create a meal, the food was nearly always cold and lacked flavour. I often had to pick up multiple plates before I found a clean one. Also a really long queue in the morning just to grab a coffee because only one machine was working. It really frustrated us and we ended up eating out for the majority of our holiday. Also note that (whilst I know many hotels do this) the beds are twin beds, which weren't clipped together, the creaked and the mattresses were so soft you almost got stuck in them. Trying to enjoy a couples holiday proved a little difficult if you catch my drift. The on site supermarket was small and in quite an obscure place I felt? Would recommend visiting other shops off site if you want to stock up. There wasn't much warmth to the overall feel of the facilities, it felt a bit too clinical for my own liking. The maid service starts quite early so expect to be woken by the sound of their trolleys. If you go with the expectation of a self catering holiday or just somewhere nice with the kids, it would be fine. But I certainly wouldn't recommend it as a couples holiday destination.

Dear ckgvckgv, Thank you for choosing us and visiting THB Tropical Island. We appreciate your recommendations of our hotel for families with kids, indeed our resort has multiple choices for making a family holidays a nice option. However we consider adults can also enjoy their stay as we offer many services focused on them, as our premium Pool with an exclusive bar just for adults, a Sports Bar for evening sport events, a Dome with a daily night show, beauty center, animation activities etc. We are disapointed that at certain points we could not reach your expectations as per the food. We hope to receive you back and make of your holidays a better experience. Best regards.

This was our 2nd visit to Tropical Island. We had a fab stay until our last 2nights when we experienced lots of noise and disturbance until 2am in the morning from the Sports bar beneath our apartment. The bar closes at 11 pm so we could not understand why these people where not sorted by security. They had Irish accents and we noticed over 25 motorhomes parked on wasteland opposite the back gate the next morning. This would probably explain the noise problem, management need to close this back gate. I must mention the lovely reception staff they are so helpful. All staff are excellent. Would we return, yes if back gate and security was sorted out.
