Just returned from a 17 day stay at the Trop, and well-pleased once again. Although our first night we were not in a beach front room (they were booked solid) Maricela promptly moved us beachfront as soon as a room was vacated. The staff are all like family, having stayed there dozens of times. Anna or Maricela will do their best when checking you in, and the beach security (Marcella) and the bellboys are all very welcoming. They continue to make nice improvements to the rooms, including flat screen TV's and split-unit AC's, which are considerably quieter than the window units in the Superior towers. The upper two floors have now been converted to suites if you need more space or cooking options. One big plus for us is the lack of noise, day and night. The hotel is beachfront, but is one block off of Olas Altas, which can be quite noisy at night due to Andale's popularity. The only minus I can think of is the lack of wifi in the rooms (you have to go to the lobby to login--free, of course). Now room safes in all the rooms, I think. I don't find the Superior rooms to be worth the extra price, unless you also want a view of the new pier from your room. Two pools finally finished, palapas packed each day…stake out your spot early or have the friendly staff set up an umbrella for you. I had never eaten in the restaurant on previous stays, but was semi-ambulatory part of the trip so we ate some meals there and found it to be satisfactory. The Amapas Mini Super (just across the street) is one of the better stocked little tiendas in Vallarta. They also have a deli and make great homemade guacamole and bolillo-style sandwiches as well as breakfasts…"para llevar". If you're not looking for five star, this is a great hotel choice.
