Staff is great, working on making things better. New beds & tvs this year. Always there to fix what needs to be fixed. Cant say enough about the staff and management. Most speak fluent english and will take the time to help you with your spanish. Makes you feel like family!!

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

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.
