The workers were wonderful. It was the room that was not to our liking. Leaky ac unit. Constantly. Maid service was inconsistent. We were there for a honeymoon and it was very relaxing. We did hit up a show one the last night and it was nice. If you do stay don't follow the maps. They seems to be outdated...

I spent the week of Thanksgiving at the resort. I stayed in Room 40301 on the third floor. If you are elder or handicap, the hotel offers no elevators. The room we stayed at was on the path where the golf carts and mini vans pick you up so it was very noisy and they start edging the grass at...

The rooms are clean and anything extra you need such as towels, soap etc is never an issue. The beaches are lovely and fun to take walks and explore. Vendors...

My friend and I got into the hotel very late . The staff was helpful but the room was not up to par. We only stayed 1 night because we were moving to another resort within the same complex. We moved to presidential suites which was great. Tropical us under construction but they really should be updating the rooms. The...

The service was great. Our room was always cleaned even if we didn't leave until 4 pm. The tropical is located right near a bunch of the beaches, food, and bars. We had a view of the ocean and slept better than we ever have. We were in tower 2. The room was average, the bed was fine and super...

For my wife's 50th destination birthday celebration, we booked, paid and confirmed for 1 bedroom Presidential Suite, but upon arrival we were put in an old 1 bedroom Residential Suite, a far cry from Presidential Suite, and down grade from a Royal Suite membership to. If what we were confirmed for was not available for whatever reasons, the right thing...

Just returned from the Tropical last weekend. We exchanged through RCI and got a great deal. Our rooms were renovated-the only two in our building. We had an adjoining room with our friends. We were located very close to the buffet, pool bar and pool. No complaints with the food or drink, especially the three al a carts. Our favourite...

“Got lucky as we were given a room in the building of #4000's, which is pretty close to everything, top floor. Room was OK (1990's), CRT TV, aged fridge but functional, close to the noisy A/C central (but couldn't hear a thing inside) = Overall Very good, spacious and bed very comfortable....”
