Accommodation at Tropical Beach Resort is in circular, concrete bungalows with thatched roofs. There are 26 bungalows in total. These are all the same type. But only five are by the beach. They are set among mature jungle trees and blend in well. However, as the trees also block out the sea breeze and sunlight, the resort can be a little dark and humid.
The location is quiet, but the nearest restaurants and shops are 5 to 10 minutes away on the busier stretch of Klong Kloi beach. Behind the beach restaurants are a few small minimarts. The resort shares the same owners as the nearby Chivapuri Beach Resort, which is a much higher standard. Tropical Beach often appears to have been overlooked as, with a bit of maintenance and some refurbishment, it could be a stand out 2 star resort.
If you do want to venture out then getting to the main beaches is a bit of a hassle and can be expensive, as taxi drivers wont come down to the resort. Road access is along a dirt and sand track. So you have to walk to the main road at the opposite end of the beach or ask the resort staff to take you.
Recommended for some peace and quiet and a lovely beach, but not if you are afraid of bugs, monkey or other wildlife that you may encounter here.
