The Tropicana is a average to below average hotel/resort. Rooms with out dated looks and lack of modern tech. If you are coming here for a business trip or if you just want regular wifi service for your everyday life, well you are in the wrong place. Lucky we were only here for a vacation and was not in desperate... More

It was an okay stay. The hotel is old and needs an update badly, but other than that it was ok. For the price there are other options that might be better. We went next door for breakfast because theirs was slow and open too late. The pool was ok, and they have a tiny gym. The elevator was small... More

Based on some of the reviews here, I went expecting the worst and was pleasantly surprised. For those traveling on a budget, or with a big family this place is ideal. We stayed in a two bedroom suite on the 4th floor. The suite had two floors. The top floor consisted of a huge master bedroom with an en suite... More

It's centrally located. Relatively close to everything that may interest a traveler. Security is not a problem, much like the rest of the island, this hotel is very safe. It would be fine if the hotel were equipped with a business center, that is, two or three PC's.

This was our first trip to Aruba. We have been all over the Caribbean but never Aruba. We flew in and rented a car and set off to find the Tropicana. It is located on Eagle Beach next to the La Cabana resort. The check-in was a little rough. Medicore front desk staff whose main language is Spanish. However, that... More

We have been going there for the last 9 years and just love all the improvements that have been made since the Tropicana has taken over. The landscaping is beautiful. They added a new security fence around the property. They also have two pools, one with a water slide and one with a water fall. The rooms are very clean... More

I absolutely love Aruba and try to visit every year. This was my first experience at the Tropicana and my worst on the island!! The staff couldn't answer the most basic of questions.... If you need to use the internet, start packing up your stuff to go to the lobby..... Turn the air conditioner up and the air in the... More

I always stay at Holiday Inn Aruba, but my last trip to Aruba was planned within two days and Holiday Inn had no rooms available for my stay. I've stayed for 6 nights at Tropicana. First of all, the price is very reasonable. At the other hand the property is outdated, but I observed that they are busy with a... More

I've stayed at Tropicana for 20 years (originally La Cabana Villa, then the Aruban) and have had no complaints. You get clean well maintained rooms and a friendly staff. Casino may be small but has decent payouts. You can not find a better place for the money in all of Aruba. Please note: it appears the Tropicana organization is putting... More

We have stayed at other Aruban properties and had been very happy. For a change, we decided to try the Tropicana. Bad decision. Out-dated unit - I have thrown out worse cabinets in my own home. No dishwasher. Very few pots and pans to cook with. You want internet? You'll have to pack your device and go to the lobby... More
