The Tropicana is the old Aruban which was the old Lacabana Villas. The Aruban went into bankrupcy when the owners took off with the proceeds of the bank account. Carl Icahn, of numerous high power takeovers, bought the notes and took it over as a Gaming investment,. The roo is investin ms need refurbishing but the staff is doing a... More

The staff was very friendly and accommodating, especially Raymond and Sherrifa. We were very comfortable, love having a ground floor room and patio area by the pool for the evening when we return from the beach. Also having a full living area and kitchen and use of a grill are great. We prefer the low rise area to the "Americanized"... More

We too were concerned about recent reviews but were totally surprised when we arrived and found a fantastic staff and two of the best pools in Aruba. (you will be amazed how... More

I own 2 weeks timeshare at the Tropicana Aruba Resort and Casino. I know its not the fanciest hotel on the island but I think it looks the most tropical. The people who work there couldn't be more helpful and friendly. The Bell Captain Pablo Hoyos is the hardest working employee, always smiling and ready to help. Tropicana is very... More

Our family with college age adult members wanted to vacation in Aruba. The Tropicanna hotel was very affordable. The 2 bedroom suite was huge, clean with plenty of fresh towels everyday. Pools were exceptionally clean and hotel was a short walk from Eagle Beach the best best in Aruba! We had no trouble finding a hut and chairs on the... More

I first stayed at another hotel but had to move when I decided to extend my stay and they were fully booked. Istayed here for 5 nights and was pleased overall. The rooms were more like fully furnished condominiums with large living rooms and bedrooms, and a full kitchen (no oven, but a toaster oven). There was a nice balcony... More

The overall hotel was fairly nice, nicer than most. Although our first night it rained and the window leaked like crazy and then there was staging in front of it. We changed rooms and got a worse view :( The housekeeper did not come every day which was a downside. The patio was nice though and the beds not too... More

This is not the kind of place that you walk into, and you think, "Wow, this is a nice place." We got this place for a great deal and thought, "Cool, this is a decent place for what we paid." Specifics: we were there on the off season, very few people were there. There is no casino that is part... More

Our family of 4 adults needed a quiet relaxing vacation near the beach and certainly got it here! Our room was spacious and comfortable though we would have preferred two twin beds in the second bed room. With the queen pull out sofa that wasn't a big problem. The bell staff was wonderfully helpful amd the front desk attentive. The... More
