Half way between Coral Bay and Long Beach.. 2 mins walking in the jungle from both the beaches.. The two main ones for restaurants bars and diving center.. Safety box service, free wifi and friendly staff.. Basic and simple rooms but you will only go sleeping there!!

Tropicanna is situated in the middle of the way from coral beach to long beach. It is not close to the beach but you only take five minute to get to each beach. We use to stay during the day in long beach and at night in coral beach so the location is excellent. The price is similar to other guest houses but this is in the middle of the jungle so you are far from the noisy night from long beach. The staff are excellent, the help in everything they can and they make you feel like you are in your house. They also help me with my mobile phone as it got wet and they gave me a bolw full of rice to dry it, although it did not work unfortunately. We were planning to be here only a couple of days and then move to another place close to the beach but we ended up staying one week. Definetely i recommend the place for future visitors. If you want to get to tropicanna you could get off in coral beach or long beach, but we do recommend coral beach as the way is shorter.

We went there thinking it'd be a good place but the place was so far up the hill that we had to drag all our luggage and were quiet tired by the time we got to the top. Then we had to search and locate the reception which frankly is invisible. The staff at the hotel are quite rude. We came back from our snorkelling and wanted to use the common bathroom to change and they almost fought with us and we were 4 women. Not recommended stay elsewhere.

No, do not go here. I cannot imagine why people would have anything positive to say about this so-called 'resort'. We know the Perhentians are a bit basic, so we lowered our expectations in advance, but when we arrived at the site of Tropicana Inn (on the worst possible place of the island, unless you have a keen interest in mosquitos and construction), we couldn't believe this was even a place to spend the night.
It looked like a construction site, but not a very busy one. After locating the reception, we finally found one of the staff willing to check us in and show us to our room. The only service we received was driving our backpacks to the vicinity of our room. The room was not clean, hot and humid (smelled a bit funny). We didn't recognise anything from the pictures of their website.

We dropped our bags at our room, locked it firmly and descended to Coral Bay, there was plenty of room, and was pretty tranquil. We booked at Senja Bay and honestly, the room at Senja wasn't much either, but it was a good bit better than at Tropicana Inn.

Room Tip: Try to book in advance at any of the other stays. Do not stay here!

I went to Perhentian Islands with some friends and due to all hotels overbooking and our no of pax we had to stay in Tropicana Inn. Most of the comments online were bad but still we booked. The location of the rooms/cabanas were a bit far from the beach but it was OK. The problem itself was the cabanas conditions: very humid, ceiling was broke and bathoom, well, it's not even a bathroom. During that days it was explained to me that every year the island is devasted by the heavy rains during winter time thats why they have to rebuild everything after it. However, if you don't have conditions to accomodate people or make it as a business then don't do it. The island is very small and even though all you want is run away from the hostel you don't have any other choice around because everything was fully booked. So, my advise is, search all reviews and book in advance. This island is really small and there are just a few accomodation options. Besides the room conditions, the service was terribly bad, english assistance was very poor and we were struggling to communicate properly and to solve some issues regarding billing settlement.

Room Tip: There are no good rooms!
