The food isnt great by anyones standards. My main gripe is the pool situation!! The main pool is lovely with entertainment, however we had... More

First of all let me start by saying that if you've already booked to go here & are panicking, then don't. You will have a good holiday because the weathers good & the entertainment (once you accept that you have to embrace bingo) is enough to make this an enjoyable place to visit. The Food at breakfast was very good,... More

We stayed at the THB Tropical Island Hotel for 14 nights from 30th June and whilst many others have posted comments on the pros and cons of the hotel and food, good and bad, I will comment on the entertainment teams who are the real stars of this hotel complex. The hotel has two excellent and hardworking entertainment teams, the... More

I came here again 6 weeks after my first visit! We loved it so much! Well hubby does a lot of cycling and I do a lot of sunbathing so Lanzarote is ideal for this and the Thomas Cook entertainers are what make this place! They remembered us from last time and as they knew hubby was training hard for... More

I have just returned from 14 days at the THB Tropical Island and can only rave about the place. Like others, I read the mixed reviews on this site and was filled with trepidation prior to arrival. From the initial help we were given at the airport prior to departure to the helpful cabin crew, our flight was smooth, relaxing... More

Our family of four, children 13 and 16 had a really enjoyable holiday at the Tropical island. The hotel is clean and tidy with apartments set in attractive squares, some with small pools in the middle of the squares. The rooms are basic but have everything you need. The main pool is large but was quite chilly when we visited.... More

Firstly, with a bit of upgrading this could be a very good four star hotel/complex. Rooms: We found the cleanliness in the rooms to be dreadful. When we arrived the floor was filthy (my socks were coverd in hair, sand and dirt)! We complained to reception and present when the maid came back again, and could i see why the... More

We arrived 7th July (14) this year, and were greeted by warm friendly staff, who I must add were the same through out the week. Our travelling party consisted of 3 adults and 2 kids, we were given a 1 bedroom apartment each, next door... More

We found food was great plenty of choice and always hot. Entertainment was fine aswell. My 14 year old son loved it, plenty for him to do, we... More
