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.

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
