The Tropicana truly has an ideal location for exploring the beautiful Romantic Zone! The common areas in and around the lobby are very clean and make a great first impression. That said, our 'superior' room on the 3rd floor next to the pool side of the building left a lot to be desired. The bathroom was in definite need of...

Laid back , quiet, older hotel. Very clean and the staff are wonderful. I will return. Right on the beach, easy walk to restaurants and shops. Suitable for couples, friends, singles. Party people need not apply.

We do like to try different hotels, even if we have been to a city several times, and our requirements are simple. It has to be clean, comfortable, walking distance to attractions and treat me like a guest, not an inconvenience. As we prefer to eat at different restaurants every night, and enjoy a beer or glass of wine at...

My husband and I just got back from staying at Tropicana in PV and we loved it! The hotel is old and doesn't have the nicest facilities but its location is second to NONE! I've stayed in the hotel zone several times and had to take tons of cabs everywhere. At Tropicana you can walk everywhere-food, shopping, bars. The beach...

Overall we were pleased with this hotel and would recommend it. Pros: Right on the beach in the old town, has two pools with restaurant and bar that is very reasonably priced and quite good. There is a small pond where a few turtles live and the guests enjoyed watching them. Rooms were clean and comfortable and ours had great...

I keep coming back to this place as it is on my short list, and things get a bit better each time I come back. Excellent location, on the beach, old hotel area, gay area, etc. Everything is within walking distance so bring your walking shoes and enjoy the exercise. Rooms are updated (if you don't go for the economy...

I booked this hotel via Expedia as an addition to my flight. Got a room with two double beds, washroom and full kitchen. Price is just right considering the standard of a 3 star hotel. No surprises, no disappointments so far. Like the layout of the swimming pool between the hotel and the beach. One thing that I am actually...

I have been coming to Hotel Tropicana since early 1996. Slowly, but surely, the hotel has undergone modifications; the latest being the giant bar palapa that replaced the prior bar structure. The new structure obscures much of the beach view from the lower floors of the center tower. For me, this was not a huge deal because most of my...
