We stayed at the Tropicana and found it was relaxing. We love the pool areas and Pizza Bob's has great food. The Trop is remodeling rooms and the casino. Can't wait to get back next year and see what's new. The staff is really friendly and helpful.

Before I go on, I have to mention this was our fourth stay at the Tropicana. It is a quieter alternative to some of the more crowded, busy places. The Trop has two beautiful pools, nicely kept grounds, and easy access to the most beautiful beach in Aruba. The staff are great, friendly and helpful. For the price of a... More

This hotel is exactly what you should expect for the price you pay. We were quite pleased with the average accommodations for a bargain price (compared to adjacent properties). The rooms were clean and practical. The pool area is quiet and relaxing. If you are looking for a "typical" resort feel guests are able to access the pool and amenities... More

Nice room, with complete kitchen, free parking, free wifi only in front of reception. Possible to use the barbecue grill. Beach is very close (walking distance), however you have to cross another hotel to reach the beach. Pool is good. Hotel is close to a very good supermarket.

We stayed at the "TROP" for 1 week ( 9/27 to 10/4) my reservations were made well in advance, the 2nd floor room that we got was a mess. Sticky drippings on the wall were dismissed as moisture by the housekeeping mgr. The shower head was caked with grime which I had to clean with a towel. The stove top... More

I lost my connection to Miami, so I had to stay in Aruba. Insel Airline brought us to this hotel. Even that it looks nice from outside, the attention is crappy. I have been waiting to be attended for more than 30 minutes to check-in (no people on counter or in front of me) I got attended by Daniela she... More

Stayed here for s batch lie party. The standard suites need a lot of help. We had a bunch of problems in the standard suite and the manager upgraded up to a three room suite. The rooms were great and bathrooms were so much better than the standard suite. The manager was great about making sure we were taken care... More

What can I say, I just spent 8 days and 7 nights at LaCabana resort in Aruba it was absolutely a wonderful experience. Leading up to the vacation I was a little tentative about going, however I did not want to return. I really cannot wait to return and I am planning on doing so as soon as I can.

Our family has a timeshare at the Aruba Beach Club but flew in a day early and need a place to stay until we could check into the timeshare. We chose the Tropicana due to its proximity to our timeshare and the reasonable room rate. Overall, it was much better than expected based on reviews I read on the property.... More

This was our 4th time at the Tropicana. We bought when it was the Aruban and were made many promises. They Tropicana management / ownership are working hard at trying to keep many of those promises, including property updates. The staff are friendly and always willing to help. Nelida helped us through the reservation process and came to say hello... More
