Visited in August 14. The pool is huge, and there are many others to choose from if you fancy it. Recommend bathing by the main one if all inclusive as that's where the snacks and pool bar is. Sunbeds can be an issue to get one due to people reserving them with towels (Not the hotels fault). The spa cost... More

We were given no choice but to stay here because of the mayhem that is The Royal. (see review). The Tropical is a sprawling complex reminiscent of a holiday camp. Although it is advertised as a THB Hotel there is no way that it can be described as such. I feel sorry for the reception staff as the Reception itself... More

This was a really nice hotel for me. I loved the fact that buildings here cannot be built high and its a massive complex. You have your own smaller pool between your own little area and if you want the big pool just head over to one of the two massive pools. The onsite scuba diving was excellent and really... More

Been there twice, last year in August 2014 and in August 2013. Both times, the hotel was absolutely brilliant. The entertainment teams (back at the time it was Thomas cook and a Spanish team), did everything to make everyone's stay more interesting, activities going on since the morning till the late evening. The food was great, there was always a... More
