Our Opinion

Cuban style hotel located across from the beach.�It is not in Havana but in Havana del Este, about 40 minutes east of Havana.�The only good thing is its proximity to the beach. Please note that hotel standards in Cuba tend to be lower than in other Sun Destinations. Unless travelers are familiar with the resort or Cuban hotels, we typically recommend that travelers book a minimum 4 star resort when traveling to Cuba.

Located 30 minutes east of Havana's historical centre, Hotel Tropicoco offers a wide range of services in a genuine Caribbean atmosphere and is ideal for those wanting to enjoy the beach and be close to the excitement of Havana.

Location: Across the road from the beach, 40 minutes from Havana International Airport.

  • Sandra C :
Terrible experience!

We were at Tropicoco from April 3rd to 10th. Our room was awful. Toilet seat broken and air conditioning made as much noise as a truck. We asked to change rooms and were told it was not possible. We waited until the reception shift changed and when we asked again we were able to change rooms. The food was good but not much verity. Hardly any meat. The life guard on the beach is always overwhelmed. Taxi drivers harass anyone who sets foot on the sidewalk and are often sitting on the stairs on your way into the hotel making rude remarks about the tourists. The hotel section on the beach is very small. Locals fill up the rest. They are very loud with their music, walking up and down the beach with their bottles of rhum. A guest who we had befriended was mugged on his last day at 7 pm at the corner of the street! Locals stole his passport and all his money as he was taking a walk while waiting for the bus to take him back to the airport. I have been to Cuba many time but sadly this is not the Cuba I know. Beware of locals and keep your expectations very low. I don't recommend this hotel to anyone.

Very good for the price

For an all inclusive, you can't get prices cheaper than $1000. Just make sure you don't buy souvenirs and cigars in the stores. Rum is cheap, but t shirts and other souvenirs like mugs are expensive. I bought a mug for $5 but the t shirts were $16. No way!

Wonderful month at the Tropicoco

This was my l0th holiday spent at the Tropicoco Hotel which I call "my home in Cuba". Weather, good, service, ocean - everything was just so good which made for an excellent holiday. So nice to meet the pleasant staff again and also touch base with the many friends I have made, over the years, that also holiday there. Thank you to everyone who made this holiday so great. I am a solo traveler and always feel very well taken care of while there.

happy times

We just got back from a week at the Hotel Tropicoco after spending a pleasant week there. Since our first visit in 2010 we were happy to see the improvements that they are making there. The food is more varied and pleasant tasting and the fruit and salad bar are great. Coffee in the morning at the bar bears special mention. We found all the staff most helpful and willing to go the extra mile when treated with respect.

Sweet quirky hotel.

I loved my stay here. If you are one of those people who complain at a Hilton it is not for you. In fact Cuba may not be for you. The hotel is weary but it has this faded Soviet era concrete charm. The beach is excellent and stretches for miles. The location is excellent if you want to see Havana yet stay in a quiet all-inclusive resort. Do you want to meet locals? It is easy to mix and chat anywhere you go here. The staff are mostly friendly. There is a nice pool though I never used it. The food is really kind of great. Usual fair at breakfast and lunch and dinner are similar, pasta, rice, chicken, fish and salads. Really tasty. Wine is also served. Really nice home baked bread and desserts and occasional handmade ice cream. Nearby town Guanabo is nice for day trips and mingling and restaurants. Free bus to Havana and back once a day. local tour buses charge a reasonable cost $10 - $15 for a hop on hop off option, taxi $17 to $20. If you are more adventurous city buses cost approx 85 cents.A basic hotel at a low cost with lots of positives.
