We stayed at the Tropicana the week of Aug 15. After reading reviews, I was a bit skeptical. But, Tropicana is working hard at improvements. Slowly, but surly it will happen, but it will take time. The suite we occupied was clean, the bed, although small, was comfortable. The A/C control was locked, so you could not adjust the temp,... More

This is a old timeshare property. They only cleaned once a week. I wont ever stay there again. When you complain, they said ok. Never again. The only perk was that it was right across from the grocery store.

The rooms are spacious, but tired. The AC seemed to work either full on or off. So it was a choice between being in a refrigerator or a musty damp room. The in-room Internet advertised on their web site does not exist, and the free Internet in the lobby is spotty at best. The Tennis courts advertised on the web... More

It was a nice place to stay. Me and my husband stayed at this hotel 4 nights and we find it comfortable and clean. The rooms are like little apartments and they have everything you need. There is not much to do at night at the hotel but you can find your way around it.

We recently returned from Aruba on August 17. Stayed at the Tropicana Aruba Resort & Casino. We were greeted promptly upon arrival with a friendly staff. The hotel is extremely clean and beautiful. Very close walking distance to the beautiful Eagle Beach and a huge grocery store which has a wonderful assortment of fresh foods, alcohol, anything you need! Several... More

I will never recommend this place to anyone. The refrigerator had rust inside of it and the room had a musty odor. They moved us to the ground level which they said was a upgrade. The upgrade had ants in the kitchen and mold in the shower 😭

Horrible Hotel, I have never been to a hotel where the bathroom is dirty and the rooms smelled like stinky armpits. Front desk staff are less than helpful, and the supervisor/lead (Phillipino-looking woman) is lazy and dishonest. On top of that a staff at the Dunkin Donuts on site was cursing at a customer. Their driver Raymond was polite nevertheless.... More

This is a family friendly hotel. Rooms are very spacious. The hotel is located across the street from a super market so dining in is an option. The hotel has several grilling areas. Nice pools that are cleaned everyday.

The past few years have been less than stellar for the resort, but the hard work of the property manager and staff it is coming back. The improvements are commendable,to include rooms (clean, freshly painted and upgrades) and the outside ( manicured lawn areas, pools, new pool bar and restaurant). Yes it still needs some work, but it suits you... More
