The first 2 nights we did not have a nice view, we were facing the back of the hotel. We asked the management to change our room for a view of the pool, which they did for a little extra money. It was much nicer. There is a nice beach just across the street, but we stayed at the pool...

Staff is great, working on making things better. New beds & tvs this year. Always there to fix what needs to be fixed. Cant say enough about the staff and management. Most speak fluent english and will take the time to help you with your spanish. Makes you feel like family!!

Clean hotel but very run down. Very old, beat up furniture in rooms. Sheets fall off beds as soon as you lay down. Mattresses hard and pillows very small. The staff were very nice and most spoke some English. The wait staff at the Restaurant were all very good and professional We had a lot of trouble with air conditioning...

El Tropicano is a decent hotel. You have to remember where you are and at what cost. If you want a 5 star resort, then pay for it. This hotel meets your needs in every way at a cost that is respectable. Close to all amenities and enjoyed the Pizza Hut down the street :)

Costera is very busy 6 lanes street which is difficult to cross when you go to the beach. Rooms are small, no bath tubs - just shower. Hot water is not always, however a cold water is...
