Tropica Gili Trawangan
Ranked #103 of 167 Gili Trawangan B&B and Inns
Reviewed 22 November 2013

My friends and I booked 2 rooms in this hotel in November 2013. Toilets in both rooms are problematic - one was clogged for our entire stay, the other can't flush properly. We asked for help at the front desk, nobody came to help. Air conditioner in my room is not cooling at all. It blows hot air and the room is musky smelling. We had to open the sliding doors to breathe easier. Music from the nearby pubs plays till 4am on Sundays. We kept waking up and we ended up being very tired the next day, taking a boat ride, taxi and to catch a flight. Please check out better hotels, it's worth it even if they are further away from the harbour. We paid for this hotel thinking that we could use the free WIFI (can't connect at al!!), a cooling room after a hot day out and do our private business in peace. There wasn't even housekeeping during the entire 4D/3N. What a horrible experience. Please do not stay here!

Room Tip: If you have booked a room at this place, PLEASE insist on NOT taking the first room at the GROUND fl...

This is a small hotel with 4 superior room (without kitchen) in ground floor and 2 apartment kitchen in 1st floor. Both the type of rooms are good. The apartment kitchen room is amazing with full kitchen and seperate living room and bed room and with a view of beach. The bathroom is very big in size and some portion is open from top(ofcouse ith the privasy). The room is also big and sun bed is present outsite the room. The hotel is hardly 10-20meters from the Harbour and beach is opposite to the road. All bars and restaurant is near to hotel. The staff is friendly, they helped us to burn the coal for drilling. There is common kitchen near the superior room which is open and clean and can be used by guest. The breakfastd oesnt have many variety but considering budget hotel still have many option (juice, breat toast, corn flakes, fruit, omlet, pan cake and curry). We stayed for 2 days and breakfast was same for both the days. Overall the hotel is in great location and if you are looking for a budget hotel this is the best choice. The negative side is the pool is very small and dangerous for kids as it is very deep 6ft.

Room Tip: If you have budget then go for apartment kitchen. It is amazing.

This hotel stole my money - they are thiefs and liars. I booked and paid for this hotel on Agoda.com. When I arrived to check-in at evening time, there were no staff available - NOBODY at all. The hotel has four superior rooms which were all full, so basically they sold my room to another customer. I had to find another hotel, which was difficult since it was high season. The next day I went to Tropica Hotel to ask for a refund and the (very rude) girl at front desk told me that she cant give me a refund because it would be deducted from her salary. The manager was not available. Eventually, i convinced the girl at front desk to give me the mobile phone number of the manager. I explained that the room that i booked and paid for was sold to another customer and asked him for a refund. He hung up the phone and rejected my following calls. DO NOT STAY HERE - they are scammer and thieves.

Room Tip: Do not stay here.

Turned up to check in and had to wait 2.5hrs for Muslim house keepers to finish there prayer and finish cleaning the room. Pool advertised, pool had a do not swim sign up for first day, but was removed the second day but the pool was so filthy you couldn't of paid me to swim in it. Power outages are constant, burning hot water throughout the day in the shower, but no hot water at night im guessing due to tank water supply. hot and cold water dispenser in the room had mildew through the internals. bed was s***house. Right at the front is the main road of gili T's and it is a dust filled disgusting pit of a place, about 50m behind the tropica gili there is a Muslim mosque (nothing against their religion) but if you had to listen to Muslims preach over a PA system that you can hear over the whole island for hours on end and have no choice but to listen, then it becomes a little bit of a problem. Gili T island itself looked like a bit of a s*** heap to me, did the horse and cart around the island first up, and then we were pulling our hair out of boredom for the duration of our stay there. Long story short, we got on the first ferry off that stink pit of an island the next day. Didn't even last 12hrs there!!

My family and I stayed here for 2 nights and we booked the room from one well known online booking website. Unfortunately, when we arrived ad the hotel, we found that the wifi and pool are under maintenance. So we cant use them as well. So if you want to stay here I suggest you to do a walk in reservation so i guess that you can bargain for the price if there is some facilities are doesnt worked well.
The room is small and neat, enough for us three. there is no complain about that. But the electricity was so poor. We found that the electricity was down for a few times while we stayed here. Ridiculous.
And the last thing is breakfast. Breakfast are include with the room rates. But because we are three here. We must pay extra 50000 IDR for extra breakfast. But the menu is not worth it. Only scrambled egg, toast, 1 jam, butter, beans, milk,orange juice, and watermelon. The worst thing are the buffet breakfast is ready at 8.30 morning. For a morning person i think that is little bit late for a breakfast.
