Excellent and friendly hotel with a good staff, especially Carolina who is very helpful and kind always ready to help all the guests. The restaurant is very good and the bar always a good place to be. Coming back for sure

Overall a wonderful place. Management is excellent & most staff accommodating. Safe and quiet location. Not much to do on the island, but the hotel has a nice pool and is very relaxing. They offer a decent breakfast buffet. Stayed in 2 other hotels in Praia which were decent, but could not match the amenities.

I have been to Praia several times this past year and the favorite part of my day has been staying at the Pestana Tropico Hotel. The room is always clean and the staff is wonderful. I highly recommend the hotel. The view by the pool is great also.

We arrived to check in for one night as we was flying the next day to find the hotel sold the rooms we had pre booked as we was only staying there for one !!! And then put us up in a hotel that did have any water for showering the next morning!! A Great start to a long trip...

GMTropico, Gerente geral at Pestana Tropico Hotel, responded to this review

Dear Gaz L, It was indeed an unfortunate coincidence that sometimes affects hotels due to constant changes in airflights (even worst in a island...). But it is unfair to give us 1 point without even entering the hotel or having enjoyed its services and facilities. So, basically, your evaluation is a revenge! We gave you another 4 star alternative as...

We stayed here for 9 nights & had a great time. The hotel is small & check in/out one of the easiest I've ever had. Most of the staff were friendly (especially Manuel in the bar & Jorge the manager) and they try to please but this does not always go to plan - for example I had to ask...

A group of us are just coming towards the end of our stay here (leave on Monday - damn, back to reality). We've had a really good time in this very relaxed hotel. One of the things you need to get your head around is that this is not a "European set-up" and that does mean that the service is...

Disorganised and overpriced hotel. Transfer from airport was not delivered despite email reminder and friends in direct contact with reception. Several reception staff were not helpful, partly unfriendly - and with limited proficiency in foreign languages (e.g. English). Coffemaker for breakfast did not work on several occasions. Dinner offers were uninspiring; it is better to go for other restaurants. The...

Dear Chris, Thank you veru much for your comments. I would like to explain what happened with the transfer. We do offer, free of charge, the shuttle service. But it's not permanent. This means that if your flight turns too be late, we cannot wait for you indefinitely at the airport, except if we've been warned on due time. Please...

4 families of 12 members stayed at this place for 4 days, and spent 2017 New Year Eve. Very spacious rooms, with caring staff. Ideally located, not far from city center. You are disappointed, if you expect a sandy beach here !!!

The swimming pool is great, and the bar as well, but the rooms are very humid and therefore not so comfortable. Be sure to have enough water with you before going to the bedroom, you will need it for everything and the hotel only gives you 1,5 l.
