Amazing hotel. Great Staff. Couldn't ask for better. My family and I were originally in the standard rooms at Cofresi but then later upgraded to the Presidential Suites. The bed sheets and pillows were heavenly! The maids were super sweet. All of the staff were incredibly friendly, felt as if we had known them forever! Especially Puchi, Moskito, John Cena,... More

will start out with our experience as soon as we were checked in (staff was nice enough) and headed to the beach: we saw a young woman throwing up on the "VIP" beach after drinking too much. Classy. The entire week was filled with these lovely little experiences, and I will demonstrate in my top 10 to you: 1. When... More

We booked our stay at the Tropical through a LivingSocial deal. The deal was for bottom of the barrel service at this resort. VIP Beach does not mean VIP access, it means access to a beach they call VIP beach. When waiting at the bar for drinks we were ignored by the bartenders who would serve people who had "gold... More

I stayed in the Crown Villas as a guest of a Shareholder. Therefore, I had access to all VIP amenities. We visited the buffet at The Tropical 2-3 times in the course of the week. The food was decent, nothing extraordinary. The VIP restaurants were notably better. John Cena and the rest of the entertainment crew went out of their... More

Do you want to be a part of inequality and feel like your not worth a wonderful vacation? If so, then this is the place for you to go especially if you booked with Cheapcarribean.com. My husband and I were led to believe that the pictures we viewed on Cheapcarribean.com were the ones that we would actually experience, but were... More
