I stayed there three nights as part of a diving course. The room was basic, which is fine for me. But bathroom was quite disgusting and sheets were stained, I had the cheapest room with a fan that did not really work. It was cheap, so I can not complain.... The food in the restaurant was pretty basic. You get... More

Our stay at Tropicana was very mixed for us. We experienced the rudeness of the staff as soon as we arrived after being pressured into booking 5 nights without seeing the room. When I asked to see the room and of course stay a night before deciding the lady at the desk was very off hand and rude. NOT a... More

Tropicana was included in my diving with Ocean Sound Dive and Yoga (see separate review for how awesome OSDY is). The rooms are basic at best but definitely serve their purpose. The location on the beach is great - easy access to restaurants, yoga, tattoos and even a 7-11. For more, including pictures, check out my blog post: http://stilettosandstatutes.com/2015/02/17/sunshine-and-smoothies/

So this accommodation is really just basic. I had a lizard in my bathroom and many really small insects. Don't know what kind of but I used a little bit of the insect spray and then it was better. I had the basic (cheapest) room so I cannot review the other rooms. My room was without AC and with a... More

I stayed for a week in a basic room with a fan (450 baht per night). Room quite big, with a simple bathroom and balcony. The room was reasonably clean, but there was no housekeeping for all the week. For toilet paper you have to pay 5 baht! . At the reception not all the time you can find friendly... More

It is a simple resort right at the beach. We had a plain bungalow with fan and a cold shower, it was simple, clean and had a nice balcony. Don't bother with the restaurant though. Very unusal in Thailand, but they simply can not cook.

Tropicana is a great place to stay in the best part of Koh Tao, on the southern tip, Chalock Baan Koh. Set is magnificent tropical gardens, that are really impressive. It is also close to many other beaches, depending on what you want. Freedom beach was great for snorkelling around Budah rock in February. Shark bay is also close if... More

Cannot believe this hotel, have never in my life stayed in such a deplorable place, Tropicana should not even call itself a "hotel"... We arrived at Buddha view and instead of just dropping us off 20 metres closer to Tropicana, they preferred to watch us drag our heavy luggage through the sand along the beach, rather than go through the...

We don't understand some of the reviews of this hotel, we experienced polite helpful staff who went out of their way to be thoughtful. We booked here initially through Ocean Sound diving company as my husband was completing his PADI certificate with them, we stayed because it was great! Both rooms were very clean, the Thai toilet thing is really... More
