We visit the hotel for second time. First for 22 nights, now for 18 nights. First accomodation was in Horizon rooms, now in Superior Tropicana. The size of the room was big enough as all the room in Mandarava. Our rooms was 2143 and 2142 just next to the pool. These rooms are

Beautiful hotel in paradise! The grounds are breathtaking and well maintained. We had a swim up room at the Coconut pool, it was so relaxing and peaceful. The rooms are very spacious and comfortable. I loved the rainfall showerhead and Japanese soaking tub. We also visited

Love this hotel so much! It has beautiful grounds and shuttle service to your rooms and the beach. There are lots of little pools around each with a swim up bar. The food is amazing. The breakfast buffet was a dream and the pool food was great too. Chicken tandoori wrap was the

We decided that we needed to go further afield this January , It was so great to get off the plane and see lots of green , rather than scorched earth ! We booked a private transfer and this was excellent , arrived early at the hotel and the staff were very helpful , we had a

We didn't drink much in the resort, however I recall it wasn't overly expensive & there was a happy 'hour' or two...at the pool bars every day.

Yes, literally a 5 minute walk out of hotel you will come to a decent sized supermarket and a couple of restaurants. Continue walking past these for another 5 minutes and you come into Karon where there are bars and restaurants in abundance. Easy walk downhill but may choose to get a tut tut ride back to hotel.

I would suggest you email the hotel directly with your question as they are surely the most reliable source of information. They are quick to respond.

I am not sure about the different room sizes, but don't worry about getting around as they lay on a free shuttle which can pick you up near your room and take you to all the key attractions within the resort. It is well worth going to the cocktail bar to watch the sunset though. Also explore the little village outside of the resort. Everyone is super friendly and can't do enough for you. They even gave me a birthday present even though I didn't tell them that this was the reason for the holiday. You will love it.

The all inclusive breakfast was literally one of the best I’ve ever had and I’ve had my fair share. I’m pescatarian and they had so many options for me. It starts st 6:30 to about 10:30. The earlier you go the better- less busy & fresher food. You’ll be spoilt for choice with regards to breads, juices, hot drinks, cold meats, fish, cereal, etc etc etc. Chefs cook some of the food like omelettes & bacon on the open kitchen where you can see & order what you want. Food is constantly restocked & plenty of waiters around for specific requests you might have. I didn’t eat at any of the restaurants but ordered in room service almost every night & it was always warm, served on time & delicious 😋 I cannot daily this place to be honest. Enjoy your stay!

"We had room 5122. Excellent"
"Not all Aqua rooms are the same so it is worth asking to see a couple."
"All the rooms are lovely, upgrading to a swim up room is an option"
"Ask for room with new furniture"
"Private pool villas are worth the extra money!"
