We stayed in a renovated king superior room and it was basic, but great. The bed was super firm, the water wasn't always hot on command, but the location was perfect! So many awesome restaurants and shops and the malecon boardwalk is about 2 blocks away. There are a lot of vendors that harass you on the beach in front of the hotel, we went a little further south between the blue chairs and the seahorse statue and were rarely bothered....the bar there played ace of base and had 5 beers for 100 pecos! The hotel had 2 large pools, towel service, and a great balcony with an ocean view. I would definitely stay there again it's affordable and in the heart of everything!

The Tropicana Hotel is located on the Los Muertos beach in the Zona Romantica and is three properties down from Blue Chairs and in the heart of the historic district. As such, the location couldn't be better.

The hotel itself has a reasonable lobby area with WiFi (not available in other parts of the hotel), a beautiful pool area (although it would benefit with more areas of shade), dated rooms and beds that are hard as rocks. The hotel realy should update all the rooms with paint, new bathrooms, and new mattresses. That said the view from the balcony, which was large in our junior suite, is spectacular of Banderos Bay. In addition, the security at the hotel is onerous and unnecessary. Guests are expected to wear plastic tags on their wrists at all times. Any guest to the rooms also needs to get a tag and pay a $20 dollar access charge. This, to me, is unwarranted.

All in all we would not return due primarily to dated rooms, horrible beds, and onerous rules for guest access.

Room Tip: Suites have a small kitchen and a refrigerator which can come in handy but are considerably more expensive.

Our second stay here was more than expected. We had a Junior Suite that had more than enough room. Two queen beds, a large shower room, a kitchenette, ample space and a huge balcony overlooking the beach and bay. Add on excellent service, superb. Any day at their beach should include lunch and drinks. Excellent service and very good fare. A very restful sleep to the sound of the waves.

Room Tip: Book a room facing west and enjoy the sunsets over the bay.

Stayed in a renovated standard king room. Was good value for the money, and had a great location with a view of the Bay. I had stayed in years past, and was pleased with the renovations!
The pool was great.

Room Tip: Choose a Standard King Room

We were very happy with our rooms, the service and the price at The Tropicana. We had a view of the new pier, and always felt safe. The pool with the ocean beach feet away is fantastic. No worries of all the beach vendors, yet easy access to the ocean. With beach service. Excellent cleaning staff with clean rooms. We were pleasantly surprised! Don't count on the Wifi, though. And we never tempted the food.
