Location is nice at the beach, there is also a swimming pool for the guests of the hotel (give your voucher to the guard). Behind the wall near the beach are all kinds of huts which people can rent for a day and enjoy there with the family. Rooms are very simple, small and quite expensive. 1200p per night. Rooms...

To be quite honest. The venue was great The accommodation was great. The problem was. At the beach where the picnic tables were there were rats. Not a pleasant site. It ruined our stay there. Wont be returning

The Dolores Tropicana is a semi-traditional Filipino family beach resort on the edge of Sarangani Bay about 15 - 20 minutes drive from General Santos City Airport. I say "semi-traditional" because in addition to the hundred or more open "cottages" crammed along the beach, there are also 20 or so private chalets (the "Hotel") in a gated area set back... More

It looked so nice from the pictures and the near by beach is also very nice. However, hearing the constant blah blah blah from the speakers about beach and hotel not responsible for accidents every about hour, was extremely annoying!! Plus we could hear EVERYTHING the ppl in the next room of the cabin were saying/doing. I could not believe... More

I have been there in march 2015 because I have been in the other resort (Dolores Farm in Polomolok) and I was imaging it was similar. Unfortunately it is not so nice. The pool is possible to use only in saturday and sunday. The rooms are hot, and the place is very noisy by music on the beach almost every... More

General Santos is a bustling city, but it is not exactly a destination known for it beaches. The beach at the Dolores Tropicana is a letdown-the sand is dark and grimy, and the water not clear at all. This is a resort for the locals-where they can swim, eat and party, but people who have been to Boracay, Palawan or... More

I was there to meet a few of my lady chat mates, but only a couple of them ever showed up over the 4 days of my stay. The other girls complained it was too far from the city. The property itself is lovely, though in need of better upkeep. The beach is marginal, but adequate. Friday night disco leads... More

This is a resort for the locals in GenSan and clearly, clearly in need of proper maintenance. There is generally a shortage of well-maintained in GenSan and I am not asking for 5-stars. Just simple Days Inn or Holiday Inn standard. LOCATION Located at Tampler, by the beach. About half hour from the airport. TRANSPORTATION From the airport : By... More

December 17, 2011 was the last time I went to Tropicana Resort (along with our Team). It was a complete bonding for all of us, playing together on the sand, swimming together, and party together with their Live Band Concert. Really a party to remember. They have also their souvenir shop, where one can buy for their own and for... More
