was staying in May 2014. Was before 4 years ago. You get refused to have umbrella on the beach because they just say "No more umbrellas", they do not give you toilet paper if you do not give tips right away.

I can't say I was surprised at the quality of this hotel. It was one of the cheaper options, and we (boyfriend and I) intended it to be a launching pad for exploring Old/Central Havana, but deep down I was hoping that it would pleasantly surprise me. It did not. We chose this one due to its proximity to the... More

Went here with my Bro-in-law in Nov 2012, and reviewed it that time . Was with him again this time. He continues to annoy me, but tells good tales. (just joking Jim) I advise anyone to try to use the more recent reviews on Tripadvisor, as things can change, as they have in this case. We transferred from the place... More

The beds were hard the food OK - if your made sure you showed up early/on time. The beach was great and best part of our trip were the Cubans we met. The one thing I said at the hotel and repeat here is "this is not a hotel I would take my kids". There are a lot of prostitutes... More

My husband and I spent the first two weeks in March at Tropicoco Hotel. We hadn't been back to Cuba since our honeymoon 35 years ago in Varadero. We purposely chose Tropicoco because it was a two star even though we were strongly advised against it. Because it's a two star it's not pretentious nor judgmental and doesn't have luxuries.... More

Bathroom clean. when requested, fresh towels were not available but the maid ensured to provide me with them the next day without having to ask again. Downside was mould... More

This year, 2014, I enjoyed a month long holiday at the Tropicoco. February 8 to March 8 and enjoyed my stay very much. Weather really co-operated, noticed that our beach is getting much smaller but we did all fit in, somehow! I liked the wooden bridges over the sand dunes but the step off on the north side is a...

I was in Tropicoco Hotel in last January. I found a lot of ameliorations compared to the year before, including more variety in the buffet. I also noticed lots of rénovations and repairs. Then I was so satisfied that I decided to go again at the end of March. And for sure it is not the last time this year.... More
