Tropicana Aruba Resort & Casino
- What's Included
I was hesitant especially after reading some of the reviews. I actually took the advise of one of the other reviewers which was to go in with low expectations and I was in deed pleasantly surprised. Unfortunately I did not get a renovated room I got a dated room but everything was clean and organized. We lucked out when we checked in everyone was nice they even compensated us when our room was not ready. Our housekeeper was very attentive and polite. There are 2 pools one with a pool bar and a slide both were Fun and the other is more of a quite pool. We enjoy spending more time at the beautiful beach which is a quick walk through the other hotel. This hotels location is ideal. Beautiful beach nice supermarket across the street and you are in between the downtown and high rise area. The renovations are slow but when they are completed hopefully in 4 years I would give them a 4- 5 star for now I am giving them 3 stars for Average.
We were there in March, 2017 for a week. The staff were wonderful, incredibly helpful, etc. The rooms were clean and inviting, amenities were superb; the iguanas were everywhere - fun!!! Special thanks to Lillian, Jackson, Albert, Pauline, Rosa, Reshma? , Suejwen?, Harold and others. We would definitely go back!!!!!!
We stayed for 9 nights, friendly and helpful staff especially front desk Rooms are a little overdue for renovation but they are clean and functional After all its a beach vacation. We had a great little patio space which we enjoyed immensly. Beds comfortable all appliances good and cleaning is daily small gym but does the job, nice pools, grills available for bbq, hassle-free parking and good security. Nice quiet atmosphere around the pool, beach just minutes away on foot. Good supermaket walking distance if you dobt have a car. Only negative for me: the "restaurant " which is in the same building as the casino way too smoky for my liking .
We cannot recommend this hotel (I definitely would not consider this a resort). Much too pricey for the condition of the rooms and lack of amenities.The first impression was the open air check-in area. It was very hot & humid during our stay, so it was extremely uncomfortable.When you walk into the room, there is a very strong chemical odor. Room smelled musty, and was very dark and dingy.The one bedroom unit was a nice size. We were friends traveling together, so we appreciated the 2 beds rather than a queen size. The beds were quite comfortable. All of the rooms need more lighting for nights.The sitting area had extremely dated, uncomfortable and drab furnishings. At least they had large screen TVs in bedroom & sitting area.The kitchenette (also very dated) had a stovetop, fridge, microwave, toaster oven and utensils. No blender or dishwasher. Laundry was by the elevators and required tokens (at $2 each) for both the washer & dryer, so 2 loads of laundry will cost you $8.00 plus more tokens for detergent.The room was not very clean, and the floors need to be steam cleaned to get rid of the dirt.We had a pool view from the balcony, but the entrance door to the unit faced a busy road and the constant sound of motorcyles going by made it difficult to sleep. The rooms are definitely not sound proof.The WIFI in the room was awful. We requested assistance from the front desk and was told (3 times) that they would call IT and call us back…. Never happened! There is a Super Foods across the street, but it is very expensive. We went to Ling & Sons which had a greater assortment at better prices.This is definitely a NO RETURN property.
I had low expectations with some of the reviews I read. True some of the rooms are dated but ours was clean and had a nice view of the pool. Happy hour is great. Pools were clean and quiet. I really enjoyed Eagle more than Palm beach due to, what seemed like, less of a crowd. Short walk, through LaCabana, to the beach. The nearby food at the close restaurants was good, including Pizza Bobs and the resorts casino/restaurant. It's a long walk if you don't take a cab to Palm, but it's island time so does it really matter? Dunkin Donuts in the lobby is a big plus for the New Englanders. There are grills in the common areas to utilize, make sure you reserve in the morning at the towel hut. Pack your own grill utensils though. The grocery store is right around the corner (5 min walk) and they have plenty to choose from.The staff was friendly and helpful. The bellhops were great (shout out to Pablo Hoyos). The only downside was, if you don't want a timeshare, be firm about it otherwise they will bug you. Bottom line is I would stay here again and wouldn't hesitate recommending it to anyone trying to visit Aruba and not blow all their money on the hotel alone.
