We stayed in a standard double for 4 nights at the end of February, 2013.
Our room was large, clean and modern with a large double bed, bedside tables, a wardrobe, television (with hardly any channels so pretty pointless although we weren't there to watch tv so was not a problem), air con unit and ensuite bathroom/ wet room with power shower. We also had a small outdoor terrace with a table and two chairs which was a nice touch.
The hotel was quiet with nicely kept gardens and pathways, and friendly staff with room service daily. It was well located just a 2 minute walk down a sand pathway to Pentah Tengah beach which was quieter but just as nice (although not as wide) as Pentai Cenang beach. There are also a number of restaurants suiting all budgets close by as well as a couple of spa's and a well stocked minimart across the road.
The resort also had a nice common area with tables and chairs where you could sit and access the wifi or simply read. For me though, there were just a couple of small things it could easily do to improve such as putting tea/ coffee facilities in the rooms or at reception. There is no on site restaurant or tea/ coffee machines or even a vending machine so, after dark, your stuck if you want a drink but don't want to wander far. Secondly, the wifi not working in the rooms (unless you're lucky enough to have a room next to the reception building), is a little average in this day and age. We've been travelling for 5 months now and can count on one hand the number of places which have not had wifi in the rooms and all have been a similar price to Tropical Resort so that's no excuse.
All in all though, for the price, Tropical Resort was an absolutely excellent choice and we'd definitely stay again.
