The Tropicana is located in old town called the Romantic Zone. It is about a 2 star hotel so don't expect the Hilton Hotel. There is a new pool which is great and was badly needed. The hotel is old but has good bones. We get a Jr Suite and it has a small kitchen--the room is bigger with two Double beds ( which are not the most comfortable).We use the kitchen for snacks wines and cold drinks--there are too many good restaurants to walk to. The beach workers set up chairs for you under a Lapalapa or an umbrella and the water can be rough. I don't really think this is a family hotel. Lots of gay couples are here but not a problem. The hotel has mostly adults. The area restaurants ( Swedes, Maxmilliam, LaPalapa, Blue Shrimp, Bistro, the River, Trios, are all within walking distance. ) as well as martini bars Like Garbos, and others. there are great places for breakfast too ( Coco's kitchen). If you want a low key place in a great area and has lost to do and walk to plus it's a great bargain then this is the place. If u want lots of amenities then go somewhere else. I always enjoy my time here I don't need a Taxi or a car and have 4 stat restaurants nearby for every night plus plenty of shopping.You will find hidden gems in the area and don't be afraid to walk around. One more thing there are a ton of vendors walking the beach and they can be bothersome but just say No thanks. I have stayed here 10 times already so something worthwhile brings me back.
