Hotel Ole Tropical
Reviewed July 30, 2012

I have just recently returned fron staying at the Tropical Playa.I found the Hotel to be of typical 3 star standard.When we first arrived we were put on the highest floor even tho we requested a low floor.After two days we asked to move and they did this for us with no fuss.Food wasnt really up to parr and not much variety,but puddings were nice.Unfortunately the lifts are a bit dodgy and we actually got stuck in one which wasnt a very nice experience in 40 degree heat!Also i found it a mad rush to get a sunbed and you had to be up at the crack of dawn to reserve a chair.Hotel was also occupied with the majority of people being German,which can be be quite unfriendly and stare alot,some were friendly to.Overall a average hotel.

No complaints really, room was cleaned every day, staff were helpful to us and you didn't have to fight to get a sunbed. The beds weren't the greatest but then again they never are abroad. Good location close to Veronicas strip, food wasn't always to my liking but I'm a fussy eater anyway although a few things to choose from (I recommend the garlic sauce it was lovely!) If you want a full english go to the bar over the road they are english owned and it was nice and if you like ice cream there is a great place somewhere near the beach that had loads of unique flavours. The Germans and Polish were no trouble considering the amount of drink they put away, the self service was a brilliant idea too as we could make our own cocktails. Only thing I would avoid over there is the bar crawl called Mayhem, its not as they advertise and a waste of money! All in all a good holiday!

Just returned back from a weeks AI at the tropical playa, from the evening we arrived at hotel the staff on desk were very friendly, Breakfast time, well not alot to choose from really, streaky bacon, beans, sausages but not as we english know sausages, they had 2 types, 1 looked kinda like a veggie one and the other spicy, lots of sliced cheese and meat, fresh fruit. Lunch time was ok, always found something to eat, Pasta with sauce, some days chicken, pork, fish, lots of salad, fresh fruit. Evening meal not much different to lunch, and theres always chips on. And they did lovely rice dishes to. Desserts always the same. ice cream, cold rice pudding, fruit salad. Evening entertainment, well there wasnt any really unless you call a couple of crooners singing old timers, I mean me and hubby are in our 40s but this didnt suit our taste at all, if your wanting entertainment then you will have to go out for it, nothing for kids either, I dont know if this will change as season gets higher (maybe). They also say theres an on site supermarket, well there is but it never opened once while we were there, but that wasnt a problem cause shops just across road, The drinks are help yourself which was great, shorts to. Only the AI finishes at 11oclock sharp then you have to pay.The only thing that spoilt it really was that we and two other couples were the only english people there, there are lots of polish, german , russian guests who stay, dont get me wrong, nothing against them, but was difficult if you wanted to have a chin wag with someone. Anyway it suited our purpose, we just went for a weeks total relaxation and it did the job.

Just returned from a lads week to the tropical playa. The food wasn`t the best in the world but there was something you could eat at mealtimes. There was 8 of us and not one person moaned. All i can say is the moaners must be really fussy. The hotel is ideally situated away from the madness but you can walk to it in five to ten minutes. You serve your own drinks, the hotel is clean, the staff are friendly. I would definitely go back don`t believe the bad reviews its standard all inclusive.

Room Tip: 1 Bed apartment there massive

During the evenings vi had lots of smallest and fast moving ants. They were mostly interested in wet areas like kitchen and bathroom.
Mattresses are noisy and we could feel the hardness of springs which are mostly painful.
The smell of sewage was overwhelming around 5:00 to 8:00 AM.
The cleaning staff were eager to clean the rooms daily.
The location is very central and the view from balcony is very nice and the sea is visible.
The the loud noise of a nearby karaoke bar was very annoying during the late evenings.
