Great value for money hotel, look past the poor English

Check in was quick and easy. We were greeted with glasses of plum juice and wet cloths to help cool down. Bellhop helped to take 5 pieces of luggage up to our room. When booking, we were aware it would be either a double or twin bed. We were given a twin room which worked out fine as the beds could be pushed together and gave two adults and a child plenty of sleeping space. Room was spacious and nicely presented. Room had a large flat screen TV and mini fridge which was useful for storing our own snacks purchased from 7 Eleven. Tip : If you like teas such as PGTips, Typhoo etc, bring your own teabags. Each floor has 13 rooms and each has a balcony with two chairs and a table. Rooms 1 - 10 on each floor face South and have a lovely view of the hillside. Rooms 11 - 13 face West and the view is of the hotel pool and reception and you get quite a bit of sun after midday. Floors 4 & 5 may get some sea view but that's just a guess as they're quite high up. The ground floor rooms are pool access rooms, which are handy if you want quick room to pool entry. We didn't go for these as we were concerned about noise and privacy as your balcony is in full view from rest of the pool area. Breakfast is served daily between 6:30am - 10:30am. The usual stuff is salad, cereals, fresh fruit, bread (which can be toasted), buns and croissants, ham, sausage (more like hotdogs) and bacon. Then there are daily variations as well. One day you could be having fried rice, the next you could have Thai noodles, curries etc, bit heavy for breakfast time but tasty anyway. A chef is also on hand to make your eggs however you like them, scrambled, fried, omelette etc. The pool is served by a pool bar which has a drinks happy hour, daily, 2pm-3pm on soft drinks, most cocktails and some beers. My only negative is that the cocktails seem quite watered down. They also serve food which is good value for money and tastes excellent for the price the food is. The hotel has a restaurant which serves burgers, Thai food and seafood. We didn't eat at the hotel restaurant in the evening as we liked to go eleswhere for the evening meal. The hotel has free wifi which was really temperamental! Usually works if you're near the reception/pool area/sitting on your balcony. Seems to be dead in the evening. There is a lot of criticism of poor English of the staff. It is true that some of the staff don't speak English very well, however if you don't have any major issues then it shouldn't be a problem. Asking for everyday things like drinks, food, towels, wifi etc was easy enough. This trip is the 2nd time that we've stayed at this hotel. This is because it's value for money, about 5 minutes walk from the beach, there are plenty of convenience stores and restaurants nearby and market stalls in the evening selling Thai crafts and trinkets etc. For livelier bars you could walk into the main Kata town bit which is 10-15 minutes walk away or take a tuk tuk into Karon or Patong. Overall, we are really happy with this hotel and would recommend and definitely stay here again!

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

To save extra money, go to a convenience store such as 7 Eleven and buy sandwich stuff which can be stored in the hotel fridge and make sandwiches for lunch. We did this in our 2nd week and saved about 500 Baht per day. For airport transfer, try pre-booking your taxi online. The taxi service from Phuket usually tries to charge 1000 Baht but if you pre-book from somewhere like phuketshuttle.com it is 850 Baht and make sure you have the right change as the taxi guy will be cheeky and ask you for the full 1000 Baht. Alternatively for something even cheaper, there are the mini vans which they fill up with anyone and do drop offs at each person's hotel which could take several hours!

Good On the inside...

From outside the hotel looks just worth the $30 USD we payed per night, but once we got inside the room the outlook was much better. The room was spacious, clean, with a modern (kind of tacky, tough) design, a large standing bath tub, dvd player, kettle and fridge.... Many amenitiesthat more than compensate for the outside looks and the not so convenient location (there is just one street between the hotel and the beach, but it is necessary to go around the Club Med -right in front of the hotel- to get to the beautiful Kata beach)

Relaxing break

The hotel is ideally located in Kata Beach, 5 minutes from the beach and right near restaurants and bars for a relaxing stroll in the evenings. Large spacious rooms well mainatined and cleaned everyday. The bed was a bit hard but the staff added a top mattress and that made it so much more comfortable. The staff were friendly and helpful although the reception staff didn't seem to understand much - the rest of the staff were faultless. A lovely pool, large balcony with glimpses of the sea between the trees - perfect.

Super

Really enjoyed the stay at Tropical Resort. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Staying on Christmas Eve as a single traveler and being required to pay for a Christmas Gala was a little ridiculous, though; it was expensive and not worth $90 USD. This was the only down side to staying at the hotel.
