Reviewed 4 May 2014

The great thing about this place is that its right on the cusp of Pantai Cenang, which is the happening area of Langkawi, but not directly there so you won't be caught in the middle of the hustle and bustle. Its very private, very much in the jungle area, but about 5 mins walk to the beach where you get to try water sports activities. Beach isn't too crowded and is pleasant to have a tan in private.
The hotel has space for car park, rooms decently big and roomy for two. Air conditioning was fine though could have been colder. Breakfast is simple, halal and they do the eggs anyway you want it. Best for couples though we did see families. Seems popular with European couples. Rosli, who works there is a wonderful help with his banter.

Room Tip: Choose rooms closest to jungle for more privacy, or closest to restaurant/reception if you need free...

We stayed for almost two weeks, and the atmosphere was friendly, amiable, obliging and very pleasent. Wishes came thru and the staf did every thing they could to make the stay satisfactory to us. Allways eager to help with finding restaurants, car rental og arranging tours. Clean rooms, short distance to beautiful beach and good breakfast. Cik Li (Ahmad Rosli) the manager became like a friend. Thank you Cik Li!

We stayed here for 5 nights as a place to stop and catch up on our selves before flying on. We did not pay alot for the room so did not expect too much for the price.
On arrival we were very please all the staff are very nice and helpful. You had a nice choice of breakfast in the mornings basic but still more than enough choice to fill you up. The bungalow Number 11 was ours it was on the end and next to the edge of the forest. It was a lovely size bedroom with bathroom with a shower and a toilet it. The shower was cod but it did not matter that much as it was that hot there.
Rooms were cleaned daily, the only thing I would of liked was a matress protector, as the sheets were a little ill filling and would come off as soon as you lay on them.
The best bit was the beach, out of our room, down a small path and your there, Beautiful was not good enough to describe it, Quiet,calm, secluded, white sands and not many people on it. There was a jet ski and paragliding outlet there but by this I mean it was small and the beach was big enough to move somewhere quieter if you wanted to. We had a go on them very resonable price and you get your lounger & umberella free if you go on them. Take a hat and suncream with you as there is not much shade.
I would go here again the Tropical was,clean,well kept,great location, very very quiet with very helpful and friendly staff, and a beach to die for

Room Tip: 11 is on the end but is very quiet and faces the beach, but you have to walk down a small path to ge...

We originally booked for 5 nights and extended to 9. You see what you get and get more that what you pay for (except for the beachfront)
Rosli and the staff were more that attentive to all of our needs. The rooms are nothing real fancy but very clean. The location is near restaurants, shops, motorcycle rental, and 60 meters from the beach. Breakfast was good, and the staff and guests all friendly. Owner and all addressed us by name which was very nice. Would recommend and return.

ADDENDUM: Prepare yourself for the beach. Right in front of the hotel, which is apparently not owned by the hotel is not maintained. The extensive same rubbish that was there when we came was there when we left. They explained why, (which I didn't understand) but explanations or not, the beach if front of the resort is very unsightly. We went 100 meters or so down the beach to our left and sat and swam. But we were reminded of the rubbish each trip to the beach

This was the only drawback of the Tropical resort.

Sometimes when you travel and you know you are getting in on a late flight, you just want a basic bed for the night. Well, this was my situation and why I booked at the Tropical Resort - without great expectations. Was I surprised! The staff were fantastic - very friendly and always up for a chat. The room was comfortable and a short stroll to the beach for an early morning walk. Well worth booking this place when in Langkawi.

Room Tip: This is the area to stay in Langkawi. After here I stayed in Kuah and it is nowhere near as good a l...

This hotel is on Pantai Tengah. It's a bunch of little bungalows inside lovely and very green grounds with direct beach access. The rooms are basic (small, and a wet room for a bathroom), but they're very clean and comfortable. It's great value for Langkawi and a good enough location with lots of restaurants and bars around. There's a spa next door called Alun Alun which is great - you get a 15% discount if you're a hotel guest and the treatments are amazing!

If Pantai Tengah is the location you want, then this place is a great deal - very affordable and clean. But I'm not really sold on this area - the beach was filthy (you have to step over a thick line of very smelly garbage to get into the clean sand no matter where you enter the beach from), though there were some nice bars and restaurants all along the beach. If you rent a motorbike and use this place as a base to get around the island, then it's great - but if you're looking to stay in one spot, then there are nicer beaches in Langkawi (though probably none as affordable as this). The beach here was too dirty and smelly to want to spend any time on...not sure if that's always the case.

We stayed for one night in February, room was great value for overnight stay. Staff were warm and friendly. The resort has a more of a nice motel feel its - close to beach and good local restaurants. Breakfast was good fresh cooked to order.
