Tropicana Aruba Resort & Casino
- What's Included
I visited almost 8 years ago and the rooms were very old, dusty and smelly, BUT, I visited for 2 straight weeks the renovated rooms, and I was very happy with the Tropicana! I will return for sure! The staff very kind! Kyle was the star of the staff!
My husband and I took a trip to Aruba the week right before Christmas. It was amazing! Tropicana is situated right behind La Cabana close to Eagle Beach. Neither of them are actually ON the beach, you do have to cross the road to get to the beach, but the walk isn't terrible if you don't mind walking through la cabana! The room was excellent. Clean and cool. There are some caddies that the concierge will drive you to the beach if you want! But the walk really isn't that bad- and this is coming from a girl who HATES walking! There is also a grocery store within walking distance that you can stock up on stuff with! The best part is the restaurant Passions on the beach right across the street, adjacent to la cabana. Amazing food and an amazing view. They are in the middle of renovations and they do like to try and hook you on time shares, but if you're firm and say no thank you from the get go, the staff will generally leave you alone! My husband and I are very "no frills" kind of beach goers. We have our "DND" on the door handle from check in until check out- so I can't comment on housekeeping or anything of the like! There are food options on the hotel grounds- the pizza place has amazing food! Really the only downside for me was the bed- it was pretty uncomfortable. But, I'll know to bring a mattress topper the next time! We're already planning another trip back to Tropicana for March 2017! We're excited to return :)
The rooms are very outdated. I did seee the renovated rooms which looked very nice. I would definitely book one of those next time. Nice location close to store and beach. The staff was always willing to meet all our needs. Pablo Hoyas our bell captain was great. They really need to upgrade the internet service.
Not worth flying thousands of miles to sit/sleep on a filthy couch! We have only been to a motel once and that was what our first room was like. At our check-in, I asked for a renovated unit, but was told that's not the agreement we have with Global Discovery who I booked through. When I contacted Global I was told that we should have gotten a renovated unit. It took two whole days of e-mailing back and forth in order to get a renovated unit. They first said that they can get us a renovated unit on Monday which would have been our sixth day there because they didn't have a room available. A room became free an hour later after I demanded a refund, so I could go and get a place on my own elsewhere. The renovated unit was clean and comfortable, but they really try to rip you off by charging an extra $50 per night. We stayed there eight nights and were charged $80 (total of $160)extra for utility expense which is the charge for the whole week. Their wi-fi is a joke, it doesn't work at all, we had to pay $50 extra to get a supposedly faster one. Although it seems like a good deal, when you add the extra fees that they charge, it's better to go to a high rise hotel and enjoy the beautiful island of Aruba. The only positive thing of the resort is the closeness to the Super Food market which has the best bakery in it. There is nothing else to do there beside sleep and get out all day. We have been to Aruba twice, stayed at PlayaLinda the first time and loved, we'll NEVER go back to Tropicana though. We cannot tolerate filth where we eat & sleep. Moreover, we do not tolerate lies, don't tell us four star resort and actually provide one star conditions, tell us free wi-fi and there is no wi-fi, tell us utility charges are $80/week and charge that amount for one day. At the end I don't have to say anymore, the pictures attached are worth a million words. I can't say anything about the locals, they're genuinely nice & friendly throughout the island, our complaints are all against the resort.
Tropicana is in the middle of remodeling their hotel. I do not know what the old rooms are like, but I read they are very old and not in good working condition. We opted for paying the extra $50 a night and upgrading to the newly remodeled room. It was nicely updated and clean. We were very pleased with it. The 2 pools were both clean and inviting. My 8 year old was swimming every day. The waterfall pool was calm and relaxing. The waterslide pool was a lot of fun. The swim up bar was fun for the grownups.
