My girlfriend and I stayed there on a 'couples holiday' whilst travelling. For this reason I would rate the room we stayed in as poor. It very small, no space whatsoever especially for simple things like unpacking bags, it was very basic and quite claustrophobic. There was a lot of noise too, after all this area of Phi Phi island is for part-goers.
However if I was here on a partying holiday with mates, whereby I'd be spending most nights out drinking and too drunk to even remember what the room looked like... then I'd probably rate it as pretty good, because it provides you with a roof and a bed to crash on when you need it.
I personally wouldn't spend another night there because it didn't suit our needs; we're not really the partying type (I know I know, it's Phi Phi!). So to be fair to Tropical Gardens, and I agree with the previous poster, they are a charming little complex of bungalows, and it has a suitable restaurant, but just not for everyone.
Like the rest of the island though the prices are very much 'western' and therefore expensive. We've stayed in nicer beach bungalows on our travels that were actually on the beach, and for less than the 1200 Bhat it cost us to stay here. My advice would be to shop around for the best deal on Phi Phi as the prices are definitely negotiable, depending on length of stay etc.
