We stayed here for 15 days (with a few days break for travelling in mountains) and it was just as we wanted it to be. It is located about 20 metres from the beach and the upper rooms have a view of the ocean.The ground floor room we stayed in was clean and had a nice view into the garden and actually provided more privacy than the upper ones.
You cannot get meals here but there is a kitchen with utensils, fridge and complimentary barrels of water free to your disposal, and actually, you can get a decently priced meal somewhere else in vicinity of TG.
There is not much to write concerning the quality, as it was exactly what one is used to in good European hotels; in other words - the best quality.
Anke the manager is superfriendly and funny, her three doggies may light up your evening, coming to you wagging their tails or sleeping in a beach deckchair.
The only drawback might be the fact that the road leading to Tropical Garden is bad at its end. Some tuk-tuk drivers complain about it and might try to charge you more due to "wear and tear" of shocks in their vehicles.
Oh yes, and if you forget a book at home, you can take advantage of one in the "library" - in Czech and German only, as far as I know. For me, the outside shower was one of the best features of this place.
