Overall a good experience. I had a top-floor room with a fantastic view. TV and AC worked great, washroom was super-clean and renovated. The hotel is in the best location for the money in town, but its very quiet, so if you’re looking for action, go elsewhere. The pool and deck area are very much for relaxing here, this is...

Everything was awesome, got a ocean view with a deck. Very good service in the hotel and out at the pool/beach area with drinks. Only downside i would say is the shower would get clogged so itd take a little for the water to drain. Other then that. I plan on coming back next year.

I had read on TA some complaints from people who had reservations for certain rooms types but didn't get described room. We had booked a Deluxe but got a Superior room. I talked with the front desk about this and they said it depends on what booking website you use to book rooms. The Deluxe room on the hotel website...

I couldn't ask for a better hotel. The stay this year was as good as last year. The room we had this year was huge, with an ocean view (a superior room in the newest section). It is located perfectly - walking distance to the Malecon, nearby restaurants - - it can't boast a good restaurant itself, which is a...

Hi, I've being going to the Tropicana for several years and I always take a standard ocean-view room. Since they built that huge palapa over the bar, the view is seriously obstructed for customers of floors 1 to 5. It is too bad. They should remove it because most people demand a room change for the top three floors because...

If you want to relax and enjoy the beach and be within walking distance of a lot of what makes the old town a great experience than the Tropicana Hotel is an excellent choice. The staff was excellent in providing help when one of the people we were travelling with needed medical attention. On a daily basis the wait staff...

If you're looking for a five star resort. This isn't it. BUT for the cost this place is amazing! Our room was clean, as were all the linens and towels, I was very impressed by the maid service - floors were swept and washed everyday, I don't believe that happens even at a five star all inclusive. Naomi at the...

We stayed at the Tropicana from Feb 25 to Mar 4. We had a great room on the top floor (9th) of the original building facing directly at the ocean. The room, as usual, was clean and cleaned everyday. The air conditioner worked great, kept the room almost too cold sometimes which I loved. It was really nice to see...

If you can do excellent beach and pool amenities, airy light filled lobbies, spotless rooms, with amazing views from the ocean view rooms and multiple common patios, in an unbeatable location, along with a reasonable price and a so-so restaurant in an older building, then you will like the Tropicana. Everything is at your doorstep here, and it is quiet...

Every morning, promptly at 7:00 am, the garbage men arrive to remove the garbage. The process should take 5 minutes but rather they are there for a good 20 to 25 minutes as the garbage men rip open each bag and sift through it for pop cans. The entire time, their truck is on high idle and if your room...
