If you want a holiday from hell then come here, but you won't be able to stay. We booked a 3 night half term break, half board and on arrival late at night after being fleeced by the taxi drivers at the airport went in to find the hotel in darkness and not a guest in sight, to be told by the receptionist to ring the agency as the hotel was closed and we had to use our own mobile and call Spain, as we don't speak Spanish this proved tricky. Eventually a lovely English family arrived back and on seeing them I realised if they were allowed to stay, we would be too. Grudgingly the receptionist told us we could have dinner quickly as the restaurant was closing (thankfully) What this means is that the staff now come in and microwave the leftovers.
We were given a key and left in pitch dark and open air to find our way to our room on the top floor. Make sure you bring a torch as you will need it. On seeing the room we realised why it was closed, we couldn't wait to leave. The room was quite warm and not a bad size with two big single beds. The next morning the receptionist had arranged a transfer for us over the road to the Imperial Plaza which was fabulous in every way and we had a great time and made some lovely friends there. The Tropicana hotel is closed now for reburishment but word has it bookings are still being taken so beware.
