We arrived on time for check in at 4p.m., we were told the room would not be ready for 30 minutes, the hotel did not try to compensate for the late check-in due to the room not being clean, however their late check out charge is $300. The room had little tiny bugs in the bathroom and kitchen. The staff... More

We were at the Tropicana for the 3rd time as timeshare owners. Each time it gets better. This year we were there the week of June 16th. I notices that there was much more shaded areas around the pool a really good improvement. The umbrella-ed tables and seats in the pool garden are a nice addition as well. As always,... More

Hi Betsy, We love our loyal timeshare owners! I’m glad you had a great time and noticed the changes happening around the property. Sorry about the two issues you encountered. I’m glad the engineering team fixed the stove. I’ll certainly have someone on top of the door lock issue. We’ll see you in 2016 and hopefully we continue to improve!... More

My sister and I stayed at this Resort June 28 - July 4, 2014. May I start by saying I am so glad I went with my "gut" and decided to stay here. I utilized my timeshare and I will list my comments below: The staff was super friendly and quite courteous. Big thanks to front desk agent, Daniela Richardson,... More

This resort is a very nice, clean resort trying to make a come-back. Its location is probably the biggest reason most people won't like it, but once you get used to it, it's not so bad. This is my second time here and in the 4 years since my last visit I seem some important improvements. The staff is very... More

Hi, Thanks for the review. I’m a bit disappointed you only visited us twice in four years - your schedule coincides with the World Cup ;) That is a fantastic time to visit Aruba. When you return, our new Double Down Sports Bar & Grill will be open for your viewing pleasure. Sorry you had an issue with your stove.... More

This is my first trip to Aruba. I am not normally one of these people to write a review at all, let alone while on vacation. The staff is friendly, though I believe it is because it is off season and they are not being bombarded with issues and needs. The grounds are "fair". The pools are nice. Pizza Bob's... More

Thank you for the review. I’m glad you enjoyed Pizza Bob’s – you are correct, the name is a bit misleading as they have a fantastic menu and lots of variety. I’m sad to say that I saw this review while you were here and my team and I made a diligent effort to track you down. We visited a... More

We had such a wonderful experience at Tropicana. We did not choose the resort as much as it chose us because we needed to be near our daughter and her family who had a timeshare nearby. From the time we arrived to the moment we departed, we had a wonderful experience at Tropicana. The bell hop and the front desk... More

We booked this room for our second annual girls trip to Aruba. The first trip we stayed at La Cabana (directly in front of Tropicana) and absolutely loved it. We couldn't clearly recall the Trop but knew the location and the website made it look fantastic. Needless to say the pictures are horribly deceiving. First was the check in battle...... More

We went through our timeshare to rent a one-bedroom suite at the Tropicana. With two older teens, we really needed two bedrooms, so I emailed the resort to ask if we could upgrade to the two bedroom, and asked for an updated room. The upgrade for the week was very reasonable, and when we checked in, we were very pleased.... More
