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

It looks impressive on the outside grounds. But on the inside I would consider it AVERAGE or below. Rooms are a little tired and outdated. They could be cleaner, upon our arrival there was long black hairs on our bathroom floor (kinda grossed me out a bit) The furniture and bathrooms need a major update, but other than that if... More

During our stay we have noticed a great improvement in the grounds, rooms, services and ammendies of the resort. I have been staying at the resort for over 15 years and we had our ups and downs. Finally we have seen a great improvment and hoping it will continue. I would recommend our resort for a fun fulll vacation.

Thank you David. I’m glad you are seeing lots of positive changes at the property. Fifteen years is a lot of visits to Aruba. Make sure you pass by my office next time so we arrange the official Aruban Ambassador Ceremony. I love that Ceremony because the government formally recognizes our distinguished visitors – and there are free snacks. I’ll... More

We arrived at 2pm at the trop. We were taken back at first because the lobby was just in the breeze way. But the staff was friendly and when I ask for a newly renovated room, they were quick to get us one. The grounds were very nicely taken care of. Our room was dated but clean. Freshly painted, a/c...

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
