Clean hotel but very run down. Very old, beat up furniture in rooms. Sheets fall off beds as soon as you lay down. Mattresses hard and pillows very small. The staff were very nice and most spoke some English. The wait staff at the Restaurant were all very good and professional We had a lot of trouble with air conditioning... More

El Tropicano is a decent hotel. You have to remember where you are and at what cost. If you want a 5 star resort, then pay for it. This hotel meets your needs in every way at a cost that is respectable. Close to all amenities and enjoyed the Pizza Hut down the street :)

Transfer to the hotel from airport about 30 minutes. An old hotel at the beginning of Costera. About 350 m from the beach. Costera is very busy 6 lanes street which is difficult to cross when you go to the beach. Rooms are small, no bath tubs - just shower. Hot water is not always, however a cold water is... More

We just returned from this dump of a hotel and never in my life have I ever experienced such a bad hotel if you can call it that. The food was God awful, daily the same, the room was horrendous! The mattress we do not even want to talk about, The shower was so small you could not soap yourself... More

We stayed for three nights at the el tropicano. Both beds in our double room were invested with bed bugs! There were thin sheets and no mattress coverings along with very old and stained pillows. The bed was rock hard and the bathrooms were old and in need of repair. Stay elsewhere! Avoid the head to toe bites I am... More

We were treated nicely and our rooms were clean . The food was good and fresh. A basic budget property that people return to year after year. Some for over 35 yrs. We will go again Jan. 2011 but for 28 days. Met lots of nice people there. The stall were all friendly and most managed English.
