Stayed for 7 days and we had a great time. Pools and public areas very nice and everyone that works there is friendly and helpful. Daniela at the front desk was great and a very pleasant person. She switched us to a different room no problem...I didn't like the location of the first one due to street noise. The rooms... More

Definitely not awful, definitely not the best. Are there better resorts on the island to stay? Yes definitely. This place is decent for the money spent. Pool areas are very nice and clean. Bikini bar is expensive. Pizza Bob's is expensive as well. Wifi is awful. Available in the lobby area only. You can get wifi in your room for... More

Went to Aruba to experience something different. Read a whole lot of cool reviews on this place. They had construction going on the time we were there, the elevators were getting repaired, and we were worried about the safety of our belongings. Ate out most meals, and the hotel smelled of wet clothes. Definitely not going there again :/

The ROOMS were nice and spacious, they do a very thorough clean. The super market is 3 minutes away in car, its very... More

We chose this hotel looking for a cheap option for our overnight stay before our flight back home and this is a very old hotel, I think it was the older buildings from La Cabana Resort (Neighbor Hotel). The rooms are outdated and also the common areas of the hotel, it was very clean and the staff very friendly but... More

I have mixed reviews on this hotel... I stayed for one night (I was in transit until the next day), it was a double bed room with a sofa bed. We came in late in the night, after 9 pm, and the room where we stayed at first (#4239 I think) had a terrible mold odor and after my two... More

The room we booked was a two bedroom suite! The two queen beds were each smaller than a regular size twin. We were traveling with four kids and without beds My husband and I slept on roll ways beds! The pool had slime growing on the bottom. The beach was nice but you had to walk through a court yard,... More

First of all I have to express sincere thanks to Jacky (inspite of the fact that she was on vacation) and Mr Caesar for upgrading our room to an excellent suite. It made our stay in Tropicana a time to remember for very very long . Thanks again. I did not see other rooms, so I can not comment on... More

First time vacationing during Christmas. I did my homework and read a bunch of reviews, so many it gets confusing after a while. I read a bunch of negatives and positives about the Tropicana and given that we are budget travelers, decided to go with it. My expectations were already low, not expecting luxury. Well, I should've had them much... More

Yes there are nicer, newer, and more scenic hotels in Aruba to stay at, but I'm not sure you're going to find one this nice for the price you pay! New Years Eve is a popular time to visit Aruba and the nicer hotels are booked early and charge ridiculous rates. The Tropicana Resort was available at a decent rate... More
