We stayed for 12 days all inclusive at the THB tropical from 3rd to 14th August. Firstly transfer time excellent we landed at 8.35pm had collected cases, seamless transfer to coach and checked in by 9.40pm. The only downside at night it's dark and the rooms are not that well signposted and we ended up finding a lovely janitor who... More

I wanted to share our experiences as this was the first time we had been abroad with our 2 children who are 8 and 5 and after booking we read the reviews on this site and panicked!! However we thought we would make the best of it and we did. The apartments are quite attractive looking, grouped around swimming pools.... More

Back last week from a 2 week all inclusive stay. 4 adults and 4 children. Yes the rooms were a bit dated, but very clean and had a kitchen. Room cleaned nearly every day and clean towels too. The complex was really nice. Lots for kids to do. Get involved or dont with the activities, its up to you. We... More

Ok I see some mixed emotions on here about this hotel, if your thinking on going trust me for a 3 star hotel that's what you'll get. We stayed 2 weeks an we had a ball. The apartment wasn't great. Beds are uncomfortable it's 2 single beds pushed together an unless your used to sleeping on a brick wall then... More

Just returned back from a family holiday at Tropical Island. First impressions were not very good as we arrived in time for our evening meal and the restaurant resembled a school canteen. The food was average at best. We went to unpack and the rooms were a nice size but very basic. The beds are quite hard. The next morning... More

Arrived late got a sandwich bag, nice touch. Had a quick wizz round the site went into the dome for a drink, was not our cup of tea and never went back.... More

Like most of the other people that have left reviews on this hotel, I was a bit wary after reading all of the negative comments on here but after just returning on Friday after spending 2 weeks here I have to say the negative comments are completely unjustified. We stayed on the Tropical side of the complex, complete with pool... More

We arranged a large family holiday (parents & 3 adult children and their families) so chose this all-inclusive resort. Within hours of arrival we nearly turned around and went home. Many of our party have stayed in all inclusive resorts in the past and were keen to point out to the others that this was far from typical. The hotel... More
