“Perfect budget place for family stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

This is a budget hotel. So our expectation was a clean hotel with a nice bed! We got it!! Only if the shower is strong and wash basin is a bit bigger i would rate this 5/5.
Medium sized clean room with comfortable bed and ok bathroom. Hotel positioning was nice as it was very near to tengah beach. Also many restaurants were available within 2 minutes walk.
As we were travelling with kids, friendly reception staff provided us hot water kettle proactively. Also the garden inside the resort is properly maintain. In summary neat and clean.
If you are looking for a budget hotel you can stay here.
I would suggest the hotel authority to take care of the bathroom shower.

This resort is just what they say about themselves, basic and clean. Location is great just a few seconds walking distance to the beach. The surrounding garden is indeed very refreshing. Staff are very helpful and cordial. Just one problem was that the shower has irritatingly low pressure. Other than that I must say it's an excellent choice in Langkawi for budget travellers. We truly enjoyed our stay and definitely recommend this to anyone.

Loved Tropical Resort, great accommodation which was spotlessly clean with really lovely staff, when I asked if they had a kettle to borrow they delivered one within moments with a couple of mugs and teaspoons. Our bungalow was seconds from the beach which was great for a morning swim, beautiful sandy beach, although the water can be a little rough at times it suited us well. As our bungalow was also close to reception we were lucky enough for the wifi to connect from our room and balcony but there is a lovely library area with free wifi. Also discovered a brilliant French patisserie just across the road for breakfast and a very reasonable laundry. Will definitely recommend Tropical Resort and intend to book again next year. Thank you for a great stay.

We had a great time there. The room of Tropical Resort was very very clearn. The floor was shiny like mirrors. and our room face to a beach. The beach was beautiful and clean, and offers many water sports.
the staff here are very nice and helpful. They were always willing to lend a helping hand. Our cell phone couldn't use local SIM card. When the manager here learnt that, he offered to lend us a cell phone to use during our stay! And the reception girl was very nice too. My 2 year old boy loved to play with her. Thanks to these lovely person and nice place, we had a great holiday.

Room Tip: Choose a sea facing room

We had a good experience with this hotel even before I made the booking. I sent them a couple of emails asking for information about the hotel and local facilities and always received a prompt reply. We found the staff to be very helpful and polite. Our room was large and the bed comfortable. It was on the beach side and faced into bush so was very quiet. We enjoyed watching the birds in the trees and it was only a short walk through the bush to get to the beach. We walked into the main part of Pentang Cenang each evening for dinner. We hired a car so were able to drive to one of the breakfast cafe's at the northern end of Pentang Cenang each morning. The WiFi did not reach our room however we could access it easily from the library which is near the office. I even found that my iPad stayed connected to the WiFi for a short time after returning to our room from the library area. We were given a kettle and coffee cups at no extra charge and could had the use of an iron and ironing board if required. The water from the shower wet the whole bathroom floor hover this did not concern us because we dried our feet on the bathmat as we walked out.

Room Tip: Room on side facing the beach. Rooms closer to the office may be able to connect to WiFi.

I can't really fault the place at all. The location at the southern end of the main Jalan Pantai Chenang is actually beneficial. It is quiet and away from the hustle and bustle of the main Street, but walking distance from all of the shops, eating establishments and everything the island has to offer.

The staff are very friendly, service is attentive and met my every needs, the rooms are simple but has everything that I needed, very clean and most importantly about 50 yards to the nice sandy Tengah beach.

What more can you ask for based on the price you pay. Thanks and certainly would recommend theis to my friends if they were looking for a place to stay...

Oh lastly try the Alun-Alun spa next door - delightful too!!
