Resort near to the city center. This hotel is near to the beach but in this area the beach is not good, lot of stones in the beach, each of us got hurt. Nice staff really friendly and the room is clean and cute. Kind of bungalow super nice. We stayed 2 night and if I come back to koh... More

Ideal for diving experience The water from shower had a foul smell. Restaurant served good food at a fair price and overlooked the beautiful bay. Room was very standard, but clean enough. If you are looking for somewhere with comfort then this is probably not the best place for you

My friend and I stayed at Tropicana for 10 days, but in those 10 days, the women at the reception have NEVER even made the effort to be even remotely polite to us. Whenever we went down there to ask them something (which we only did when absolutely necessary in the end), they never said anything nice. And by nice,... More

Stayed in a fan room for 3 nights (it's 500 Baht/night). The room was pretty rundown but I could tell they tried hard to keep in it clean. Bed sheets had old stains on them but smelled clean. The balcony was nice. Bathroom was little bit smelly in the mornings but overall, tolerable. I ate there once during my stay... More

We spent our first 3 nights at another hotel very close by but wished we had booked this one from the beginning. The rooms were a good size and all have balconies overlooking the really well kept garden. Staff were very friendly/helpful. Although the place was very busy, unlike our other hotel, it was very quiet. Loved sitting on the... More

Lots of friendly employees taking care of the place all day long, that means ultra clean rooms, friendly atmosphere and a feel-good vibe. We were there for a week and it was just great. It's really close to the beach, and also from Ocean Sound Dive + Yoga...

I had a great bungalow on the beach with hot water and fan for 600 baths a night. Location at the south of the island Chalok Bay was perfect for me because diving school and yoga shala were both 2mn walk. But you have to rent a scooter or a bicycle if you want to go to Baan or Sairee.... More

We stayed here for 1 week, while doing our diving training with Ocean Sound Dive and Yoga. It was pretty basic... The room was clean and sheets were changed every 3 days. There were no bugs and no mosquitoes got into the room. We were in a room on floor 3, and there was a nice balcony. However, the nights... More

While the location was good and the room was fine I would never recommend this hotel to anyone. Even my worst enemy. I have never been treated so badly by an employee in my life. Our horrible experience began when the horrible woman at reception claimed she couldn't find our reservation. After going back and forth for 45 minutes, she... More

We had a basic room with a fan. It was a good size and had a nice balcony. About a 30 sec walk from a gorgeous beach. It was very clean when we arrived, and they clean rooms every 3 days. The restaurant was reasonably priced and decent food. They arranged ferry and train tickets for us back to Bangkok,... More
