Tropicana or El Paso as we named it was alright, stayed here last minute for 2 nights as needed a stopover and everywhere was full, it was OK but would not have chosen this place under normal circumstances. Apartment was large and cleanish, it needs a full refurb as still stuck in the eighties when it was built. Luckily we... More

This resort is great if you have young children, otherwise stay somewhere else. The pool area is nice and clean but as it is at the front of the resort it can be very noisy, especially if you want a room with a view of the ocean. The rooms are clean but need an update, very 70's décor. Location wise... More

Rude staff & there was no apology for giving us the keys to the room 1.5hrs delay!!! Our plans were ruined due to the delay and it was not acceptable to receive the room at 3.45pm when half the day is gone and you're paying $$ for the days worth. There was no manager on site to contact and we... More

A quick 2 day stop over before Christmas, we were surprised how clean and tidy and well kept the units and facilities are. We had a top floor ocean view room, no air conditioning but not needed due to wonderful ocean breezes and also ceiling fans in all rooms. Defiantly will be staying there again for much longer!

We stayed with my 2 grandchildren for 2 weeks in October. Our 2 bed apartment was spacious and clean with a more than adequate kitchen area and 2 bathrooms. The facilities were good for a small resort with both indoor and outdoor pools, 2 BBQs, a games room and half size tennis court. All were in very useable condition and... More

We have stayed here each summer for four years. Our three children (now teenagers) still love the holiday. The rooms are spacious, contain all the necessary comforts and this place has a real community atmosphere. We have met other families who come at the same time each year and it is wonderful to meet up again. Doug and Mandy are... More

We just spent 4 of the most relaxing days at this little family oasis. Friendly staff & a spacious BBQ/pool area made this the perfect place for our family get together. Our 2 bedroom unit had great ocean views & the games room kept us all entertained during the rain. We simply loved it!

We recently stayed here for a netball carnival and there were about 40 of us. As the building is U shaped all rooms had a view of the pool and BBQ area from the balcony. It was great to watch the kids from. The rooms themselves were probably 3 and a half star but the location was unbeatable. Only ocean... More

We were desperately in need of some serious R & R and we found it here. So relaxed and friendly. Mandy is just wonderful, she really made our stay perfect! We stayed in Room 35 on third floor - absolutely gorgeous, everything you could imagine needing was in the apartment. Not to many young children around and quite often my... More
