Just OK
Dec 20 2013
We had an amazing time in Aruba and the Tropicana provided the basic hotel comforts. However, I'm not sure we can recommend this hotel for others if there is another close in price with better amenities. In our room the bathroom light never turned on with the first flick of switch, the toaster oven was so well used that all the numbers and letters were worn off, essentially just played with the dials until the light turned on. The towel drier rack in the bathroom was fragile and broke. There was a horrendous night noise issue. They had crickets or frogs that would start at dusk and chirp through the night. No other hotel that we visited (to scout out for next time we go to Aruba) had any issues with them. The internet was only in the common area, not in the rooms. The Tropicana is for someone that is low maintenance. We never reported any problems with the room because we were on our honeymoon and didn't want to deal with interruptions to our day, or having to change rooms. On the good side, the bed was amazing, good TV, nice fridge. If you are looking for just a basic bed, kitchenette, and bathroom; this hotel will suit you. If need waited on or expect a lot, stay somewhere else (but come to Aruba, it is amazing!!!)

Nice hotel but could use some improvement

We are at the hotel at the moment. We checked in last Saturday and we are staying a week. The hotel itself is much nicer then I expected. We have a renovated room and it is very nice. Staff has been very nice and accommodating with a couple of minor issues we have had. There is a grocery store within walking distance which is very handy. If you plan on going out to restaurants you must have a car. Nothing really within walking distance. The beach is beautiful. The hotel has 2 pools that are really nice and beautiful to look at. My biggest complaint is they are way to cold for anyone to go in. They never have to clean them or add chemicals as no body goes in them. Biggest disappointment for me. Would not come back because of the pools. If you don't want to spend the evenings at the bar or casino you are stuck with tv in the room. Nothing to do after sun goes down unless you have a car.

We stayed in a large one bedroom suite. There was a nice kitchen with a toaster oven,a microwave & full size fridge. Room was very comfy. This resort is kinda quiet. If you want the casino & beach...cross the street through LaCabana resort. We’ve stayed at Tropicana once before & this room was one of the remodeled rooms. Staff is friendly & there’s a Dunkin Donuts down stairs & a “general” store.

We had one of the refurbished rooms and they are really nice and clean. Very spacious, also the kitchen is fully equipped. The pool is nice and you can walk through the La cabana hotel to get to the beach within 5 minutes. They offer free sunbeds at the beach also.

Customer Service Problem

Our flight was cancelled and we arrived late, after 9:00pm. After signing in I asked for a bell boy and they said they leave at 8:pm and I would have to do the luggage myself. I'm 77 years old and just had cancer surgery and cannot lift anything over 15 pounds. They said there was no one available. The housekeeping staff was very pleasant.

I have a time share at LaCabana BRC, directly across the parking lot from the Tropicana. I arrived a day early (before my time share week started) and elected to stay at the Tropicana as the room was 1/2 the cost of a low-quality room at LBRC. “You get what you pay for” applies here. While the room was nice (renovated) it was “in the back” or “you walk through the pool area and enter that building.” What this means is that your entry door faces a busy road and the Super Foods complex (buy your groceries there, honestly) and the other door faces the pool area. Road noise is HUGE from this side of the building. Additionally, an industrial size a/c unit is in the room and is very despite the fact there was a sign asking guest to not turn off the a/c...I turned off the a/c so I could sleep. The unit itself is nice...nice living room area, good kitchen, spacious bedroom and a neat, European style bathroom (sorry, no bidet.) I was pretty embarassed at the behavior of Americans at the front desk, demanding this or that, being “ugly” Americans. Needless to say (I have dual citizenship) I presented my Italian passport when asked for identification. (Morale of the story: Don’t be that guy....and remember you get what you pay for.) The staff was nice. I had to interact with the maintenance guy, however, when I discovered my in-room safe didn’t have batteries. How on earth does this happen? Dunkin Donuts staff is nice despite the fact that NOBODY said “please” or “thank you” when interacting with them...just my observation during a few visits. Summary: I would definitely NOT stay here for the duration of my vacation. Pick a place that you can see the beach from (balcony) until you have finished breakfast and can go to the beach...or at the end of the day when you are on the balcony relaxing. The Trop does not have any of this. Okay, maybe a couple rooms per floor can see around LaCabana but not many. It is a good “temp stay” place as you move to a nicer locale with a better view. Think twice before you book here. I might pay the extra and stay at a nearby apartment or LaCabana if I have to fill in time in Aruba.
