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!!!)

Old and dirty. They definitely do not like customers. We get to check in first think out of his mouth is we can’t get you into your room by 4 (which is check in time). 4:47 we could go to our room.Unexceptable We paid for breakfast for 3 days and they argued with us. When we showed them on our reservation they definitely treated us as if we were a bother. As a side note the cleaning people were at our door at 9 and 10 to clean our room when check out time is 11. Our room was dirty and very old There is no internet in your room unless you pay for it so everyone is in the common area using internet. Who doesn’t have free internet. The best people that work there are the bell hops. Kyle is a trip and made us smile everyday. Pablo Hoyos was extremely kind and helpful. Always went out of his way to help you. Would never stay here again.

Folks I was there November 28, 2017 for a little over a week after being displaced from Turks and Caicos due to the storm. Our first time and I have to say we got one of the older units but there was nothing wrong with it, I can't understand the negative reviews. our Iron was broken and it could not get resolved by housekeeping so I emailed the manager but the supervisor called me the next morning and worked everything out, I really have no complaints. The resort is clean and the bar does closes early the pool is clean. Ok I pretty much dodged the time share folks. Parking was always plenty. Forget about getting an umbrella on the beach unless you are there early. I took a tent and cooler and had an amazing time. The double down restaurant is really good food and service . Guess what I am going back summer with my kids cant wait to visit again. Thank you tropicana for a lovely time and I look forward to my next visit.

Good Location

The resort is currently renovating the guest rooms. Be sure to get one of the ones that is already done as the others are old, dated, and not very functional. The two pools are nice, the restaurant attached to the casino is reasonably priced and has a varied menu. The ambience leaves something to be desired and I wouldn't bring children there.

Great place to vacation

Stayed here 2/17/18 to 2/24/18. After reading the reviews I was apprehensive about booking here. Turned out to be a lovely resort, great staff, clean and comfortable. Although it was a busy week the atmosphere of the resort was nice and quiet. Enough to keep you busy but not so much to be distracting. Within walking distance you will find the beach and a large grocery store. Walk over and take a quick cab ride back. Check in and out was easy, quick and efficient. Staff was friendly and always had a nice smile and kind word. Hats off to Pablo Hoyos, Bell Captain. If needed there is a free shuttle to the beach and back. Just be patient as you may need to wait a few minutes if you need the shuttle during busy check in and check out time. Manager was very nice.

Great place to relax and get away to

The staff is friendly and helpful. The renovated rooms are beautiful and they are on track for getting all the rooms updated shortly. The pools are so relaxing and the swim up bar is great. What a calming environment. Can't say enough for the ladies in the lobby who scheduled all our activities and for Pablo who greets you every day with a smile and his generous personality.
