“Good choice for Pantia Tengah”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 January 2014

This was my second stay at Tropical Resort - its a good option and offers good value in Langkawi where hotels are a bit expensive in general. Agree with all earlier positive reviews - and agree that if the management can offer beach umbrellas for guests (there's little shade on the beach just in front of the hotel,especially in the afternoon) it would make the experience even better. Breakfast is simple but nice and there are many food options within 5 minutes walk of the hotel. Nice for couples and/or families but also felt very comfortable as a solo female traveller on my earlier trip. They provide tea/coffee making facilities in the room - it would be nice if they also topped up the mineral water every day . Strongly recommended.

Room Tip: ask for the row that is closest to the beach

We stayed her for 12 nights over Christmas and was really pleased. The rooms are basic but spacious and clean, we were given clean towels most days. The balcony is lovely to sit and watch the birds and is so peaceful.The breakfast area is very nice too and the 2 guys who run it are soooo nice nothing is too much trouble, very friendly and helpful, in fact all the staff are.
Nice location minutes from the beach and some lovley places to eat across the road.
Excellent value for money and would defo stay here again if we visit beautiful Langkawi again,
Thanks Tropical resort!

We, a family of five, stayed at the Tropical Resort during new year for one week. The rooms were clean and the beds comfortable. The hotel is located about 100 meters from the beach and in a quiet area. Combined with quiet guests this made for undisturbed sleeping. Our rooms faced the sea and although there was no direct sea view we could sit undisturbed outside our rooms reading in the afternoon listening to the birds around us.The staff was excellent, very professional and personal. Since they are so few they soon got to know us and helped us with all our questions and taxi bookings. Breakfast was simple but good. This is not a luxury resort but (something much better) a small family run hotel with a professional and relaxed atmosphere and in that class this is the best I have stayed at.

Recently stayed in Tropical Resort Hotel in Langkawi, hotel is located in pantai tengah and very close walking distance to pantai cenang. can't fault anything within the price of USD50 (MYR150). Its good location, only 3 min walk to the beach. Good clean rooms with A/C, freeze and tea coffee facility in rooms and also good simple breakfast within the price. Staff are very nice and well mannered and very prompt in action. There are very good restaurants in the close proximity of the hotel both western and local food are in the offer. Just opposite hotel, there is duty free shop for cheap booze and also good eating option. Recommend to any one who visits langkawi.

only flip side of the hotel, the management must think about beach umbrellas and if necessary they can even rent for small amount to the guests, so guests can have more relaxing time in the beach. We think hotel owner must give a serious thought. We will stay again there no doubt.

Room Tip: all the rooms are good but recommend the back rooms close walk to the beach and no noise rather quie...

Would be glad to find a place like this one wherever we go, and it was only $42 a night! Set back from road, quiet and near beach. Hotel consists of two long rows of one-storey duplexes, windows on two sides in each room, with verandahs and chairs to sit outside and provision to hang wet clothing. Peaceful and tranquil on side facing beach. Rooms adequately furnished. Air con, fan, minifridge, bath all good. Three TV channels, which is the norm in Langkawi. Staff does the little things here and are gracious about it: beach towels and mats readily available, breakfast made to order. Located across street from laundry, convenience store, restaurant, and coffee shop/epicerie.

Great place to stay, a very short stroll to the beach. Rooms are clean and functional. The staff are also very accommodating to requests. Would recommend to friends. There are multiple eating options near by. And just around the corner from Babylon suger, best bar in langkawi

We stayed for a week at Tropical Resort and would definitely return.

It's a great location - just a couple of minutes walk to a quiet beach and 10 minutes walk to the centre of Cenang - and just opposite was a well-priced duty-free shop and a fab Indian restaurant.

The room was basic but comfortable and clean (though a few pictures and a splash of colour wouldn't go amiss!) and there was a fridge and kettle, a good hot shower and a comfy, but firm, bed.

Breakfast was good (including eggs cooked to order) but got a bit a bit repetitive over a week. But the breakfast staff - the two Rs! - were really charming and helpful and made us a local option (nasi lemak) one morning and also got chilli for our omelette when we asked. Rosli was particularly helpful and his English was excellent.

We were lucky to have Room 18 which gave us a glimpse of the sea and the distant sound of waves when we sat outside in the evening. The plants were beautiful and really well looked after and we saw loads of colourful birds at dawn and dusk.

Would we stay there again - no question!

Room Tip: Rooms 17 and 18 have a glimpse of the sea and great fro bird-spotting!
