I have some mixed feelings about Tropicana - there were good and bad things about it. Location is very good - close to the beach, seven eleven and some good restaurants.The place itself is very pleasant - wooden bungalows situated in some sort of a "little parc". But it's quite far away from the centre of Koh Tao and you... More

I stayed 3 nights in one the cheapest bungalow of the resort (450 Bath per night) and I found it great for the price. Of course it's not luxury, but everything was clean, the location is nice, staff was nice too. There is wifi for free everywhere. Unfortunately when I was there, it seemed internet was down on the whole... More

The place is ok but a little noisy at night. The problem is tha the staff treats very bad the costumers. The restaurant is bad and portions are small. They are little lucky to appear on lonely planet.

We stayed at the tropicana resort, because the bungalows from the diving school (alvaro diving) were full. We got the second closest bungalow to the beach front, which was really nice. You only have 20m distance to the sea…its amazing. the toilet was so so (the water from the shower was smelly) but the room it self was okay. We... More

The location close to the water at a beautiful bay is great. We loved the menu too. The rooms are good value for money. Large and quite clean. People are helpful. Downside: the rooms close to the road can be very noisy. Take a room further from the road.

KT Tropicana is still good value, as you don't find a lot of places on Koh Tao that are on the beach and start at THB400 and this was our 3rd time staying here. The grounds are still kept in immaculate condition and the rooms are clean, each with a veranda looking out onto the gardens and beach. Unfortunately, there... More
