The resort appealed to our whole family. The concierge staff and Tropicale staff were truly amazing who went out of their way to be friendly to us all. The restaurants served great food and the pools provided endless hours of entertainment. Would definitely return!

My wife and myself visited this hotel for a second time recently. We spent eighteen days at the hotel and can honestly say that we enjoyed every one of them. Our room on the seventh floor of the terrace block was first class and you could not fault Kae who looked after our room daily. The breakfast in the Lotus... More

Our door opened up to the lagoon pool that had slides for the kids. Plenty of activities for both kids and adults. Breakfast had plenty of choices, waiting... More

This resort was very well located, 5 min walk to the beach and to the main road with all the shops. Not located directly in Patong which is nice but still close enough, about 15 min drive, which is where all the nightlife is and lots and lots of shops. The hotel room was very big and bathroom was good... More
