Just came back after spending another week at Tropicoco. Remodeling and renovations are now over. There were a lot of old AC units and pieces of metal laying around in the back of the building which indicate they just replaced a bunch of equipment. The food was perfectly alright and there were enough choices for anyone. Yes,food is a bit... More

Okay, so the food is iffy, and the elevators work 50% of the time... but for the price you pay, this is one of the best beaches I've been at in the West Indies (having just returned from Montego Bay, Jamaica, and comparing to Barbardos and St. Lucia). The rooms are clean, the AC works, and most the reviews I... More

Stayed at the Tropicoco from Nov 3-10th. You have to realize i am reviewing a 2/2.5 star hotel and not a 4-5 star. For that purpose, Hotel Tropicoco was sufficient in making my stay most pleasant. My room was clean, spacious and simple. The air conditioning worked great. The safe was small so don't expect to fit a laptop in... More

If you have a family or married or this is your first time to Cuba, Tropicoco may not be your best bet. Stop being cheap and get something else that your wife will be pleased with, Say in Varadero with more stars. BUT if your single or with a group of friends and ready to enjoy Cuba and all its...

Keep in mind that this is a Cuban 2* hotel that is very reasonably price, with realistic expectations this hotel is a gem. It is old and in need of renovations, the elevator did not work when we were there at the beginning of September but the characters it attracts is worth the price of admission. This hotel makes a...

The hotel is old and falling to pieces but it has a lot of charm. The rooms are big, clean, the staff are amazing, the beach is beautiful. This was my second trip there, this time I dragged along family and friends to celebrate my 30th. We all had a great time and we sad to leave. I will be... More

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.
