I had a nice room with ocean view. The service was very good and I enjoyed my 5 night stay. Ate breakfast in the restaurant several mornings but elsewhere during the day. Location is very good and I walked to everything except for the airport. I stayed at the Tropicana in 1959 when it had probably 30 rooms and was... More

We did not have a reservation this trip. Figured we would just show up and see what happened. The Hotel we had been to a few times before was full so we looked around and found this one. Good rate--clean looking--so we booked it. The room was very nice, the staff were great and accommodating, the over all service was... More

So i recently stayed at this property 5/20-24/2015 This was suggested by a friend of a friend who had stayed here before. The location is great. Playa de Los Muertos, shopping, dinning, beach, anything you could think of. The service tho from a few of the front desk can kill the vibe and they can do it quickly especially if... More

Very disappointed with the management of the hotel regarding the swimming pool rules that are not being obeyed and NOBODY doesn't say anything : The sign says: NO CLOTHES ALLOWED inside the swimming pool and that was lots of adults and children with regular street clothes swimming.

Visited the Tropicana during the week leading up to Easter - definitely a busy time not only in the Hotel but in PV as a whole. We had a room that was on the ground floor in front of the pool - try to avoid the ground floor....go up at least one level (noisy). Room was basic, large comfortable bed,... More

.....we stayed at the Tropicana last year and came back again in March.The BEST hotel in Old Town for location/beach/price. Note...it's a hotel, NOT a resort. It also has an adults only feel to it. Lots of gay men as guests, so if you have a problem with this maybe just stay home & do not come to P.V. at... More

My husband and I stayed for one week at the Tropicana in mid-March. You have to want to be in the Zona Romantica to like this hotel. We had stayed there for a night or 2 on other trips to Puerto Vallarta. This trip we had a deluxe room on the 8th floor and I have yet to figure out... More
