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.

For what it is, it's great!! Don't expect a 5 star because it's not.

I always forget to write reviews on this hotel. I've been to Tropicoco 6 times and going again in October. The hotel is a bit run down and the food is okay at best sometimes (breakfast is absolutely the best meal of the day there) but the staff more than make up for this Hotel. I always travel here alone and meet my Cuban girlfriend in the lobby when I arrive. The front desk staff are fantastic and always try to get me a room with 1 big bed for my girlfriend and I. The shower and toilet functions great and the TV and fridge in the rooms are great for when you want to relax in your room after a long day at the beach. I've gotten to know some of the staff and always try to bring some presents or some treats like chocolate and cookies for them. Down the street to the right is a fantastic little restaurant that serves great food and they've also gotten to know me when I show my face. Their prices are very reasonable and the quality of food is great. Even further down the street there is a nice little pizza place that makes fantastic pizza at amazing prices. I can't say enough about the beach across the street. Beautiful white sand and clear waters. It's kilometers upon kilometers and natural beauty. The beach does get pretty crowded on the weekends because it is considered a public beach but it's patrolled by police.Tropicoco has turned into my home away from home. I go twice a year to Cuba and always book at Tropicoco. I love the staff and some tourists that frequent as often as I do. I always have a great time at Tropicoco. Tropicoco, I'll see you again the first week of October.

Turism and travel.

To the environs of Havana city, nice place to be in the capital but not necessary in the busy city, just around 45 minutes to havana.Located in the Santa Maria del Mar beach area and beside of the other famous beach the cuban people Bacuranao beach.

Great location.

Spent seven days at the hotel. Chose the hotel because of its location - beach was just across the street. Beach was however quiet most times. Would have loved to have more music to dance to when not in the water. Hotel did not fall below my expectation of a two-star status. Though, it was all-inclusive, meal was neither special nor bad. Staff were friendly (from receptionist, to hotel securities, to restaurant/entertainment staff) except the DJ who refused to play a song I specifically requested. LOL (I didn't take it personal though) It was a "Sango" song (Afro-Cuban). Every other thing was good. I didn't mind the AC, natural air was good for me during the day, night time - the AC worked fine. One or two bed bugs, but who cares!...i killed one of them before it bit me. The other? left it to go tell the story to others who might be tempted to come. lolAs per tourist, met some amazing people who made my stay worthwhile! Ali especially, a grandfather who had a young heart - made us laugh out loud most of the time. Free shuttle buses in the morning and evening to pick you to and from Havana, if you wanted to get to the old Havana. Taxis right in front of the hotel to take you to El Cubano bar at Guanabo if you feel like moving your body to some electrifying Spanish dance-hall songs. However, be aware of 'Chikas'. Overall, I had a good time. Would go back again if opportune.
