Considering the price, it is just fine. Food was plentiful, beach was great, and close enough to Habana. No matter how many times we tried to get on the free bus, it was always full. We just paid for the tourist bus for 5 cuc round trip. Service was not great - I guess they don't know how hotel sevice... More

We stayed at the Tropicoco Jan 4 to 11 2016. Our room had a beautiful view and was clean. I found the staff to be helpful for the most part, there was one bartender obviously having a bad day, but the rest were friendly and helpful. The hotel itself is actually quite nice, open and easy access to a fabulous... More

I booked this as a package with Sunwing vacations. The photos on the website look good. turns out they are heavily photo shopped when you look closely. I had good food in the rest of Cuba. Tropicoco serves food that I would give to prisoners. Totally unappetizing. The only good food I had was from the omelet guy in the... More

Just returned this morning (Feb 5/16) from a 7-day visit to Tropicoco. We were familiar with the area, having stayed next door on 3 occasions. One of our single beds was not good - it flattened sideways when laid upon. The other was fine. Pillows were thin - but not lumpy. With no balcony, it was difficult to dry wet... More

The hotel was under renovation when we arrived so I'll have to cut the place a little bit of slack but it should be shut down while the work is underway. The rooms were terrible; the door didn't lock properly; the bed was super uncomfortable and slightly damp; the pillow felt like a piece of foam stuck in a sock;... More

Stayed here with 3 friends the week of Jan 10 2016, firstly the place is in need of repair. The rooms leak when it rains so expect water on the floor, ants crawling in the beds, maids change towels only when tipped, otherwise your old towels will be hanging back up. This place is good if you use it as... More

I've stayed at this hotel at least 8-10 times I can think of. As I had mentioned in my previous reviews, since Cubanacan took over from Hoteles C, the attention to the upkeep has been on the rise. What's new? - For the high season (I guess) both the Lobby and Conga bars were open daily. Conga is the one... More

Some rooms are in better repair than others, building is still in need of repair,etc... but i did witness... More

Free Shuttle bus was suspended while we were there.Don't count on it. No hot water unless 4 pm Leaky roofs every where. Paid $495 with Transat and won't worth 1 penny more Food was bareable for a 2 star hotel Leave you with pictures and you judge yourself
