In short, we had an amazing stay. This was our first stay as a couple. We had an amazing time! The food was beyond delicious. It was incredibly delicious. The buffet alone was more than enough variety and deliciousness to never have to go to a different restaurant. If you get bored of one buffet, you can always visit Confressi... More

Beaches are not pristine and white but the facility is top notch when you go Black Band! The staff and... More

We just returned from 5 days at the Tropical. We booked through cheapcaribbean (hello because of the amazing prices), and then I read ALL of the reviews. I was scared of what may be in store. I packed disinfecting wipes, tons of bug spray and prepared myself for a less than desirable experience. I am, however, happy to report that... More

Let me preface this review by stating: You will find many negative reviews on here in which the writers criticize every little thing, much of the time the critiques are of small, meaningless things. Don't be scared away by the reviewers who complain of dirty or "unacceptable" rooms. Simply not the case. The room (building 5 at the tropical) was... More

This place is really nice. The administration makes it difficult for any visitors that are not owners or interested in becoming owners. they tend to over book changing reservations at their discretion without informing travelers. We received confirmation that we were confirmed for a Presidential Suite but arrived and were given 2 hotel rooms. Rooms were average, food was average... More
