We stayed in the comfortable deluxe room set in a nice garden setting. It's only a couple of minutes to the beach and the main shopping / dining area while being in a quiet location - supermarket, scooter rental, breakfast joints and restaurants all within minutes.

A simple double room and bathroom. You can walk straight from your room, down a short track to the beach. Free WIFI is available around the reception area. The staff were extremely helpful, but not much English spoken ( which we liked!) Great value and we thought it was lovely, but it is not the place for you if you want all the entertainment/facilities of a big hotel.

Room Tip: We stayed in a deluxe, facing towards the sea, no view but it looked over gardens rather than other...

My trip to Langkawi was undertaken in mid-June'13 and reviewed soon yet coz of there's no possibility for rewiew correcion on this source but rather delete it was completely removed.

So as for Tropical Resort it's a beautiful place with nice bungalows in a garden and Wi Fi zone to the library either quite near the other hotels and restaurants with different Asian cuisines, SPA, shops or nice quiet seashore on a straight walk way as well.
It was also car/bike rental points of service and travel agencies in quite a walk way as well.

The rooms were clean and comfortable with all the necessary conveniences like air condition, fan, frige and TV. It was even antimosquito gadget provided with a stuff.

The rooms were cleaned every day with attentive stuff and no inconvenience was caused by that action.

Special thanks to Mr Shukri (the gentlemen on reception) for advice in docs Malay translation, Mr KK (with travel agency) for a nice trip over the island with guide assistance and also Azahar (navy man before and taxi driver for a moment) for efficient recommendation and personal help with business and private matters.

Actually the place for trace leaving to mind for a nice sweet memory.

It is run by a family and the rooms are really nice and clean! They do not have food option but its ok as the main market- Pentai Cenang is walking distance from it! The library area is very nice! Wi-fi is very good though it won't reach the room.

The location is nice as it's away from the hustle bustle market and has the beach! I fell in love with their 3 kittens!

I can't believe how cheap it is to stay here, we were given a sea view chalet which was a very short walk to a beautiful beach (littered with loads of plastic but I assume that's been washed up by the sea and there's nothing tropical resort can do about that! anyway, it doesn't spoil it :)) and the room was modern, clean and comfortable and even has a fridge. my husband got stung by a jellyfish and two of the staff drove us to the hospital, they honestly could not have done more for us - so friendly and they went out of their way to help us! even loaning him a mobile phone so we could call a taxi to bring us back from the hospital. since then they have all been asking how he is, they're so nice :)

we loved staying here and can't wait to come back for one more night at the end of the week :) I wish we could stay longer here, highly recommended.

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.
