Service was fantastic when we (my girlfriend and I) went, even though the staff's English wasn't great (if any at all) they were happy to try and help you. The food was varied and very good (not that I had anything other than chips, but my girlfriend was really enjoying everything on offer). We took advice from trip advisor and got a taxi from the airport (only 10 euro), it really is that close! And even to the local town which had some nice shops and seen a great show at a small bar on a night we had out. I would go again in an instant, but probably in warmer weather, the pool was too cold in November :)

The hotel on arrival was plain and simple from the front, just as you would expect from a hotel.
We stayed here for a week from the 21st Jan 2009. The weather was terrible. We had 3 good days that we could sit out for about 4 hours or so in the sun. Yes I know this has nothing to do with the hotel, but the facilities the hotel has to offer are entertaining enough to keep you from getting bored.
THere was a large gym though only a few machines actually work. There was a sauna and Jacuzzi (though for health and safety reasons I wouldn't use the Jacuzzi, I know to many horror stories, but plenty of other people where using it.)
The food was average, there was Chips or Wedges with everything!! Though the whole time we where there we never had the same meal, there was lamb, beef, chicken, fish every other night, the selection of vegetables and desserts where poor though.
The pizza bar, was tasty though a tad cold but then who hasn't ate cold pizza the morning after the night before!! It filled a hole, when hungrey after a game of tennis.
We stayed all inclusive at this hotel where was great, there was a large selection of drinks to choose from Alcoholic and non-alcoholic.
This hotel is good value for money, I would not go back but this hotel is a good base for exploring the rest of the town. Though we priced a taxi to Correjlo and it was 120euros return!! but the public transport is good and reliable.

we came back from costa tropical 2 weeks ago and we had a lovely time. i didn't know what to expect as i had read mixed reviews but i was very pleasently surprised.i have stayed in much better all inclusives but i have also paid double the price so its true you get what you pay for.

being a family of 5 the accomadation was great 2 beds in the bedroom and a single bed and single with pullout in the living room. there was a little kitchen too with fridge and microwave and hob but because its all inclusive you don't need these.
the food was fine, not brilliant but certainly worth what you pay for.for breakfast there was a huge variety from salads, bacon eggs sausage beans tomatoes, cereals, fresh bread then there was bread for toasting on a little toaster.there was danish pastries and little cakes which were a nice touch.tea and coffee machine. what more could you ask for.

lunch and dinner had a salad bar then a fish dish pasta or rice a meat dish and FRIES i'm afraid fries were always on and they were the only potatoes but hey its only for a week !!!! there was a sweet counter too with nice little desserts and a freezer full of ice creams to help yourself.there was beer to help yourself and soft drinks too like coke and sprite etc.

there was a pizza place too with drinks and food which was great especially for the kids or on the way home after a few drinks.

the pool area is lovely and well maintained but the water is freezing.......................... as it is in all pools in spain in the winter so that was no shock to us the only heated pools we've ever been in is in usa.

the hotel was nice too, the bar was very small infact i wondered how everyone would fit in at high seaon but it was fine in january.the entertainment was a little to be desired... ha ha ... but we enjoyed it and our kids had a laugh, and a game of bingo.the staff are really nice too especially jose who was great with my 6 year old son.

we paid 10 euros in a taxi from the airport that was including the tip do not pay a travel agent for transfers we got 2 taxis as there was 5 of us but it was still cheaper.
theres a bus from the hotel which goes to town a few times a day and picks you up and brings you home all free !!! the town was lovely and just 4 euros in a taxi if you wanted to get a taxi.

there is a gym sauna and jacuzzi that you hire at an hour at time all free of charge which is great as they give you a key and only your own family is in there which we really liked.

costa tropical was a great holiday for what we wanted, a nice bit of winter sun for a very low price better than i thought it would be. i hope this helps. !!!!!

Me and my boyfriend both 18 have just got back on the 1st feb.
the hotel is 7euro from the airport bonus! much cheaper than transfers... The hotel itself was really clean and lovely the staff were friendly the pool was clean and outside area was clean. The rooms were a bit annoying at times, hot water lasted one shower! toilet took about 20 mins to flush each time! but just petty little things that grate on you. The rooms are clean and have what you would expect. The surrounding area was still being built and it was very quite. Food was not nice!!! but everybody has different opinions and like different things, snack bar pizza is great!! and pool bar food is nice. The girls who do the entertainment really do try hard to please everyone and get you all involved really good!! i would defently go back to the country but not the hotel, it was a brilliant holiday though just the few little bits that could have been better but was a cheap hols so wasnt really expecting a hilton hotel!!!

We’ve just got back from 9 nights all inclusive at this hotel, and endorse everything said by ’Family Guy’ - with the exception that we didn’t mind the coca cola paper cups!
A real bargain break, all activities included in price - gym, sauna, Jacuzzi, tennis etc. Free shuttle to the beach/town. Plus San Miguel beer and a much wider choice of local drinks/mixes than we’ve had before at AI hotels.
The hotel is officially rated as 2 star - far and away the best 2 star we have ever stayed in. All staff are friendly, helpful and hardworking. The hotel is very clean, kitchen and restaurant included.
The entertainment is not obtrusive, no late night blaring music. The two girls work very hard to give a variety of activities every day, all good clean simple fun, which you can join in with or not as you please.
The chef works miracles on a very low budget, all the food is well cooked, well presented and tasty. It includes something for everyone. There is an excellent salad bar, plenty of fresh bread and cakes - and real butter. There’s always a great choice of desserts including fresh fruit; the chef’s rice pud and homemade soups are spot on.
OK there are chips every day, but there were some folk who seemed to exist on them! If you don’t like the food there’s (non greasy) beef burgers from the pool bar and pizzeria, which will be freshly cooked if you ask. And highly recommended pizzas!
Thank you Costa Tropical, we had a great holiday, well above our expectations, at a bargain price.

If you have just booked this hotel I feel sorry for you. The hotel is basic and reasonably clean, the staff are courteous but the food is absolutely awful. Chips with everything, and very limited choice on the all inclusive menu and what there is is cold tasteless and suspect. The Pizzeria food is lukewarm and is left out all day. They make tea and coffee with lukewarm water from a flask and then zap it in the microwave! We suffered it for 3 days hoping it would get better but after being confined to the apartment for 36 hours not daring to be more than 10feet from the toilet we decided to eat out and thats not cheap. Hotel runs a free bus to the nearest resort which is handy but the walk along the seafront is pleasant even if it is windy.
