The location is ideal. It is in the Romantic Zone & is right on the beach. There have been many upgrades over the past few years such as a much improved restaurant/bar area & the addition of another swimming pool. It is a three star hotel so there aren't any Italian nights or whatever else resort type hotels provide as... More

We have stayed at the Tropicana twice and both times they have been clean and reliable. The location is excellent, the price is very reasonable considering the location right on the beach and near the pier plus great restaurants etc. It is not new, it is not 5 star, but we have not found anything to beat it for the...

we have stayed at Tropicana for 8 years and it is not as friendly as it used to be. Stayed at Tropicana hotel again 2015, and when taking a friend through the pool area we were delayed with the comment from the security/warden" you cannot take a guest to your room", and we were not going to the room, and...

This was our second trip to PV, first stay at the Tropicana. Plusses- very friendly staff, very clean-housekeeping comes in every day (hats off to Maricela), located in romantic zone so we could walk all around Old Town-wonderful restaurants and markets, nice pool area with waterfall, restaurant area (limited menu, food was ok, not great), bar area with happy hour...

We booked to stay here for 5 days months before or visit but after flying 6000 miles and in need of sleep, they had no record of our reservation. After half an hour at reception they eventually gave us an "upgraded suite" even though that is what we had originally booked in the first place. The room was on the... More

Since we only needed two nights before we checked into our resort for a week, we were apprehensive about where we could stay that's central, in the beach and affordable. Tropicana is comfortable, good ocean view for us even at low rate, safe and quiet, nice food and bar and excellent service staff. It's not luxury, WiFi only in lobby... More

This is a basic hotel, but it is very clean and with friendly staff. It is convenient to everything in the Romantic zone and within walking distance of many good restaurants. The beds are hard, but they all are in Mexico. There is no internet in the rooms, only available in the lobby. The beach is spectacular with beach chairs... More

We stayed here from December 26-January 2. We booked an economy room because there wasn't really an option to upgrade on the site we used. Upon arrival, we were smoothly checked into a very basic room on the second floor with no window or balcony. I will emphasize that this room was very very clean! The next day we paid... More
