“Very Good for what you pay”
Reviewed October 26, 2013

Just arrived back after a lovely 2 weeks, no TV Fridge or hairdryer in room, you can hire them if you so desire, but didn't really miss any of them. Room very clean, beds comfortable could have done with an extra pillow. Bathroom same, brilliant shower! Hangers aren't brilliant, take a couple with you. Entertainment every night, some very good indeed. Staff brilliant, all very happy and jovial, great with any children. Pool not too big, but big enough. Enjoyed eating our meals on the terrace across the road from the beach, beautiful views. A few steps to the front of Hotel, and about 9 to the poor area, I am disabled, but managed all very well, there is a disabled lift to the pool area if you need it and ramps to the front also. Reception staff very accommodating, nothing too much trouble for them. Would have no hesitation in returning - made the clients feel like one big happy family. Try it, for the price of the holiday, it was very good indeed. Don't expect 5-star hotel if you only want to pay 3-star prices, well worth it.

Room Tip: Ask for sea view, one half of the main block faces sideways, view not brilliant We had a room onb...

Loved the location,friendly and helpful staff,Halloween night and daily build up,the breakfast issue paper with weather report, and giving information of things to do and see around the Island,but the amusing pool bar attendant with his comments of'Whisky is good for cholesterol'
just one of many he called out throughout the day was quite entertaining.

I do agree with other reviews however that some major refurbishments are badly needed,particularly to have lift access from ground floor in both of the buildings,as they must realise that not every person is in a position to safely negotiate stairs,and even though a chair lift is available,quite honestly it would be an embarrassment to be seen using it,and even so their still would be a further three steps to climb to reach the upper floor lift and I do not believe they have an hand rail support.

The dining room staff were fabulous,almost in every instance while I was there ensuring tables were cleared with no delays,to make sure that patrons were not kept waiting to dine.Plates for hot food were always hot,but my only criticism is that the content of the food that you wished to place on them should have been considerably better and the menu's given a greater variety.

Finally for the prices paid it was very,very good value,and my advice would be carry out the much needed modifications and recover costs involved by an increase in price.

Our stay in the hotel was a pleasant one. I would really like to see gran isla hotels plough good money into it tho as it is very dated and worn(furniture wise).
All the staff from the reception staff to the cleaners are fantastic and are very helpful at all times.
location is great, best placed hotel in palmanova with all amenities straight outside.
food is very well cooked(could do with some decent bacon tho at breakfast time).
We would definitely stay again and would definitely recommend.

This hotel is in a great location but really needs a revamp its a little dated. The staff are wonderful, very helpful. We had a few issues with our room nothing major but as soon as we told reception it got sorted straight away. Food basic but tasty. Loved our holiday and would stay at tropico again.

I stayed at the Hotel Tropico Playa from 15th September 2013 to 25th September 2013 along with my wife / Daughter and Son in Law.
I found the Staff at the Hotel from reception to Bars and Restuarant very very friendly and helpful.
The food was resonable, bit repetitive but in General ok.
The rooms we had were allocated were cleaned every other day and the bed and Towels were changed daily on the downside the entertainment was a bit poor apart from a couple of Artist's that were exceptional in our 10 day stay.
I think the thing that stood out for this Hotel was the view from the seating area which faced directly on to the Beach and sea which on a night the Sunset was FABULOUS.
On the downside the Hotel did not have a entertainment team for Day Activities so whilst the weather was excellent the days were long. Overhaul the Holiday was enjoyable and the friends we made whilst there also made our stay at The Hotel Tropico worthwhile.

Room Tip: Ask for a Room with a SEA VIEW for that extra special Holiday and Photos.

My sister and I stayed here 13/10/13 to 20/10/13 and we had a great time. The hotel is in an excellent location in Palma Nova, right on the sea front with beach access literally a few meters from the hotel entrance. The staff are incredibly hard-working and pleasant - they are an absolute credit to the hotel.

We stayed in the annex at the back of the hotel, which was up lots of stairs - no lift. If you are travelling with young children or you can't manage lots of steps, then I'd recommend contacting the hotel as soon as you book up to reserve a room with lift access. The rooms were spacious and clean, with a huge balcony area. Yes, they're a little basic - not really an issue for us. The only small negative was there were no plug sockets near the mirror, which made drying hair and getting ready a bit of a pain, but we managed to cope!

The food was good - plenty of choice and always fresh salad, cold meats, cheese and fruit on the menu each day. I don't know how lots of reviewers complained about the food - they must be incredibly fussy. For the price paid, the food was great. And if you really struggled, there were ALWAYS chips! We mainly ate out the hotel in the evening, as there are loads of good cafes and restaurants within a couple of minutes walking distance and we wanted to see more than just the hotel!

The drinks were also great - you get huge measures of spirits and a the Spanish beer was really nice. The evening entertainment was a bit of a mixed bag (and occasionally a bit bizzare), but everyone seemed to enjoy it - tribute singers, dancing troupe, hypnotist, quiz, etc. And if it wasn't your thing, you could always escape to the outdoor terrace.

It was my first time staying at this hotel, and I wouldn't hesistate to recommend it to anyone looking for a bargain all-inclusive break. The value for money was excellent - I'll definitely be staying here again if I return to Palma Nova.

Room Tip: Try to get a room with a sea or pool view - less stairs!!

Just like to say that my holiday at this hotel was very good. Having read various reviews i was slightly apprehensive about my holiday, but i shouldnt have been. My party of 3 adults couldnt fault this hotel. Staff great, food good and drinks good. The hotel is so central with the beach just across the road.

We will be returning to this hotel again.

Room Tip: just choose this hotel you wont be disappointed.
