Perfectly adequate for our needs - a friend and I were travelling in Malaysia above shoe-string budget but not luxary. Clean, cool, good shower, beds were firm but it all was fine and served as somewhere to rest and recuperate. A little out of town and not on the beach. The beach is a peculiar mix of water sports and places to lie and relax - it didn't feel like it quite knew its audience. Would recommend the accommodation.

we stayed for 2 nights here at RM120 & RM100 per night (2nd night discounted!) in one of the 'beach facing' rooms, queen bed. was not really beach facing, but facing some foliage. and required some 5ish min walk through some patch to get to the beach (although it did not exactly claim to be located on the beach) which is fine. the path, if spruced up a bit, can be very nice. saw the owner stating the path is on someone else's land. but IF they are able to work out somehow to spruce it up nicely so that i did not need to walk barefoot with extra caution, that wud be superb

apart from the points above. the place was veryvery nice for the price. clean. well maintained. away from the crowded chenang beach but not too far out. and pantai tengah was very nice. nice owner. nice bathroom. good sized room. worth every cent

we actually initially signed up to stay at the chalet next door (at RM120/night) but it was so bad (!!) we developed a headache that we went to seek another place to stay the same night. thank god we found Tropical Resort. sceptical at first due to similar price. but was left impressed.

recommended!!

I stayed at this resort in September 2012. The hotel is a great location but really needs redecorating.It could be so nice.There is no pool or tea and coffee making facilities. The TV was ancient.
The short walk to the beautiful beach is totally littered with rubbish.No one seems to be disturbed by this.i would have thought that someone would be assigned to collect it !
The linen and towels were so old I would have thrown them away years ago.
The entrance to the resort is lovely and the chalets could be made so nice with a bit of effort.
The property has such potential.It is sad to see it let go.
After two days we moved next door to Frangipani which is worth every extra cent.There is no litter there !! It was so clean.

Thank you for taking the time to give us a feedback.

First and foremost, allow us to extend our sincerest apologies. It is indeed unfortunate that your experience with us wasn't a pleasant one.

That being said, we would like to point out we never claimed to have "a pool or tea and coffee making facilities."

Also, let us explain about the "short walk to the beautiful beach is totally littered with rubbish.No one seems to be disturbed by this."

Fact is, that land doesn't belong to us. Furthermore, we'd like to point out the "rubbish" that you meant were in fact: fallen dried leaves, twigs, small branches, animal droppings and grass.

Yes, admittedly the linen and towels have seen better days, but, to be fair, why didn't you mention it to me when I came round, to one of your rooms, to look at the bed that was allegedly broken?

Everything would have been sorted out without the slightest bit of fuss.

Interestingly you stated "..after two days we moved next door to Frangipani which is worth every extra cent." Our records showed that you booked through a third-party, 2 twin-sharing-rooms for 2 nights and left after those 2 nights. And, the every extra cent was in fact 25,000 extra cents.

Finally, thank you for stating that "the property has such potential."

And, the truth is that we are trying to live up to our potential. We are in the process of upgrading and renovating, and to keep costs down, we have had to do them in phases, and at snail-pace.

The good news is that 3 double-deluxe-rooms have recently been renovated and are ready for occupancy. But, the bad news is that we have another 7 to go.

Once again, we are deeply sorry that your stay with us wasn't a pleasant one.

Tropical Resort is on Pantai Tengah, which is just a couple of minutes walk from the bustly Pantai Cenang. I was pleased to find the pretty resort in a peaceful location. The deco of the room wasn't great, but its got all the basics - a tv, air conditioning, hot water and a mini bar to store your duty free goodies. No mineral water, cups or kettle though. I found it pricey for RM150 a night for a basic room (queen sized bed) and no breakfast.

To access the beach you have to walk through some rather long grass in between some trees - the walk isn't far but its not very inviting. Once I got to the beach I was dissapointed to find it littered with plastic bottles. But the resort next door had a nice clean beach and lounge chairs and were kind enough to lend me a spot for sunbathing!

Service was friendly, the proprietor chatted with me and gave me some travelling tips.

Overall this place was only just average!

Just wanna let people know that this is a great option for a place to stay slightly outside the main area. The owner is extremely friendly and helpful. He dealt with any request in a friendly and efficient way.The rooms were basic and clean, hot showers with a clean bed. What more do you need? There are some good places to eat on the same road without going towards the town.
