The Tropical is the "lower class" section of the massive LHVC Resort. Check-in took quite awhile, and the lobby is very crowded and HOT! Rooms were clean but dated. Do not stay in building 2 as it is extremely NOISY especially due to close proximity to the food prep/receiving building. Must pay for WiFi in rooms. Must also pay to... More

Ok I think I need to update my review of 4 or so months ago. Once again my wife and I went on a mini escape through Cheap Caribbean to this resort and I must say we were pleasantly surprised. There has been a huge improvement overall in the resort. Remember we were in the cheap seats so did not... More

We had a lovely vacation there but most of the photos shown on websites are for the time share owners. The staff is wonderful and eager to please. We requested a ground floor handicapped room which we were given BUT there was no door on the bathroom and there were mirrored closet door across from the bathroom. We spent the... More

I liked how they involved everyone in the activities and I really enjoyed the parties and shows they had. It is a very large hotel and some might not like it but honestly I did. I... More

Stayed Aug 12-16. Booked on CheapCaribbean on Cyber Monday. Got a GREAT price, but wish I had spent more for a different resort. Check-in was fast and easy. We got to our ground-floor corner room (6122) and were sorely disappointed. Musty smell, old worn-out furniture, etc. Later that day we had winged ants coming into our room, which I gathered... More

Let me start first by saying I have traveled frequently to the Caribbean. I typically do my homework. I was somewhat scared by some of the reviews I was seeing so I decided that I would be proactive (as I have done in the past) and email the resort hospitality personnel about my concerns. Often times in the past when... More

First let me start out by saying I did enjoy my vacation and I made the best of it. The staff at The Tropical were amazing. They're very attentive and great workers. It was one time that we had a minor issue. Well its not minor when its 90 degrees outside and the AC is not working. I told the... More
