“Excellent stay in Langkawi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

Stayed at the tropical resort from 2nd to 6th October.
This is the perfect place to stay in Langkawi for a budget stay.
Rooms were really clean, staff was really helpful (I accidentally jumped in a sea urchin and they helped by providing me lemon and trying to remove the spine from my foot).
They arranged the taxi very early for us and were there to make sure that everything was okay.
Breakfast is cheap and good.
The beach is one minute walking and it's very close to many restaurants.
I will definitely recommend this place to everyone who is looking for a simple, good and cheap but VERY CLEAN accommodation.
THANKS VERY MUCH to ALL tropical resort staff!!

We had a lovely stay here - the rooms were really good value for money and right by the beach. It was in a nice quiet location but you didn't have to walk far for lovely food and shops. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, especially the man who served us breakfast.

The resort is very nice and has its own beach (even though there are better ones in the next town). Due to the fact that its very cheap the rooms and the location are absolutely reasonable. A little bit odd was that I had to transmit my credit card details via phone and the manager. Moreover we asked to change the room from queen size bed to two separate beds and the manager answered very rough which was a bit disturbing. Neverthenless the hotel is worth its money.

I stayed at on 21 September. I wanted to try it out as I booked another place 2 months in advance. Tropical Resort was 4 times more worth than the other hotel I booked (and a lot cheaper too). Everything was close: beach, cheap food, expensive food, shopping, etc -- all at a walking distance. I got 1-bar of wifi from my room -- but it doesn't matter when everything else fit into place. I had a rare occasion to make friends with a Hornbill that was playing at the tree near my room. All in all, will come and stay at the same place again.

I've been meaning to write this review for some time as even though it's been a while since I visited, the tropical resort, I often think of the great week we had in Lankawi for which this was our base... and we couldn't have picked a better one.

I stayed here with a friend two years ago and found it be the best value the location has to offer.... and we shopped around, checking out practically every spot along Pentai Chenang and most of Tengah too before discovering this gem. The bungalow was spotlessly clean and the gardens well maintained. The resort doesn't offer all of the bar, massage and restaurant bells and whistles that some Langkawi resorts boast, but not having these amenities on site mean you get great accommodation for a fraction of the price... and just pop across the road to a great spa or take a short stroll along the beach to the lighthouse for a drink in arguably the best sunset spot on the island. Tropical resort has its own pathway leading down to the beautiful beach (Pentai Tengah) too. The resort is very quiet so despite the nightlife of Pentais Tengah and Chenang being a very short stroll away, it won't disturb your sleep.

The only thing that may be an issue is that the resort had a no alcohol policy which meant we couldn't have a cold beer on the bungalow balcony in the evening, but this was absolutely no issue for us and there's no shortage bars (of all types) close by anyway.

I stayed in this hotel from 10 to 13 of September. The reservation and check in process was pretty smooth. The room was in an awesome location. It was room 16. Room was clean and spacious. AC and ceiling fan were in good condition. The wifi is not a available in rooms. Instead, there is a very lovely place close to the reception with wifi. In fact the area is a kind of library which was great idea. Overall, it is highly recommended.
