“A great vacation”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 weeks ago

The staff at the hotel was very friendly and helpful. They were patient and made sure we got the answers we needed. The room was clean, the televisions worked when we had time to watch. Theie was an outing we heard about and we wanted to attend but had no idea how to get the information, we took it to the staff and they made it happen. you are in walking distance to the beach, grocery store, resturants and casino. I would recomend this hotel to my friends and family.

It was a nice place to stay. Me and my husband stayed at this hotel 4 nights and we find it comfortable and clean. The rooms are like little apartments and they have everything you need. There is not much to do at night at the hotel but you can find your way around it.

We recently returned from Aruba on August 17. Stayed at the Tropicana Aruba Resort & Casino. We were greeted promptly upon arrival with a friendly staff. The hotel is extremely clean and beautiful. Very close walking distance to the beautiful Eagle Beach and a huge grocery store which has a wonderful assortment of fresh foods, alcohol, anything you need! Several gas grills available in the hotel courtyard. Pools extremely clean and very refreshing/relaxing. Although the facility needs upgrading, it was well worth the stay! Staff extremely friendly and helpful. Fully stocked kitchen. Very clean rooms! Will definitely return to this facility!!! Well worth the value we paid!

I will never recommend this place to anyone. The refrigerator had rust inside of it and the room had a musty odor. They moved us to the ground level which they said was a upgrade. The upgrade had ants in the kitchen and mold in the shower

Horrible Hotel, I have never been to a hotel where the bathroom is dirty and the rooms smelled like stinky armpits. Front desk staff are less than helpful, and the supervisor/lead (Phillipino-looking woman) is lazy and dishonest. On top of that a staff at the Dunkin Donuts on site was cursing at a customer. Their driver Raymond was polite nevertheless. Worst hotel in terms of cleanliness and service among all the hotels I have stayed in the Caribbean. I would not recommend.

Room Tip: The rooms smelled like stinky armpit.

This is a family friendly hotel. Rooms are very spacious. The hotel is located across the street from a super market so dining in is an option. The hotel has several grilling areas. Nice pools that are cleaned everyday.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

The past few years have been less than stellar for the resort, but the hard work of the property manager and staff it is coming back. The improvements are commendable,to include rooms (clean, freshly painted and upgrades) and the outside ( manicured lawn areas, pools, new pool bar and restaurant). Yes it still needs some work, but it suits you if you want a clean and comfortable pace to stay for a vacation (it is not home). I feel very secure (especailly going and coming at night alone).

Room Tip: Ask for renovated room (not all are finished).
