Hotel Club Tropical
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
We stayed at Hotel Amigo Tropical for 2 nights in low season. The Hotel was only hosting a few guest, therefore the use of the pool and the beach was made easy, as there was plenty of space to choose. We arrived at the hotel driving our car for rent and we asked the hotel staff where we could park. They all seem really unprepared to receive guests traveling by car and the hotel don't provide any parking space.We stayed in a Superior room. The room had nothing of a superior room and in the room we were given the A/C was not working. We had to asked to be moved to another room, but the staff was not very keen, despite being low season and only a few rooms were actually occupied by guests.The staff at reception, bar and restaurant was not very kind, they seemed annoyed most of the time.The quality of the food at the restaurant was shocking, same food was served over and over through the days, not too sure about the hygienc condition of it. We are not difficult with food but most of the meals we struggled to actually find something to eat. Moreover, we were annoyed by a big amount of flies during our meals.The positive note of the place is the stunning beach and sea, but you can find that anywhere you go in Varadero.
We stayed here for the first time in 2004, to save money. I knew nothing of Cuba at that time. The hotel staff was extremely accommodating at all times. The food was bland, as in most of Cuba. The solution to that is some black pepper from home (the pepper in Cuba is a mild, brown, and "fluffy"), and some peanut butter from home. The bread is always good, and in particular, almost every day, someone arrived with fresh fish, and I mean very fresh, probably local. Whenever this happened, I queued at the grill and took a plate of nothing but fish. That could get me through most days, along with the excellent coffee in the lobby coffee bar.The room was very clean, and it was cleaned daily. We never ran out of hot water. Sometimes the pressure was low (we were on a high floor). The drinks at the bar were all cheap mix, but I rarely drink alcohol. I had some red wine with meals, and it was acceptable.For a hotel that is not expensive and something like 2.5 stars, I was very pleased to stay here. Two things were annoying. One was the hustlers of every description surrounding the hotel and everyone in town. The other was the walk to the beach, which was only a minor inconvenience. The hustlers swam in the ocean with their wares in plastic bags, and they popped up near the tourists while we were swimming. The guards got them out in a few minutes so they do this for whatever they can hustle up in a few minutes.The constant hustle in the city centre makes me very reluctant to stay in any hotel in town, but this one would be among my options.
We stayed here the week of March 22, 2017. We booked a week before departure and paid 830 per person out of Halifax. We booked 3 Tropical Garden views. Upon arrival the lady at check in seemed confused as if she was not expecting us. We did not get three Tropical Garden view rooms. Two couples ended up sharing a two bedroom apartment and the other couple got a second floor poolview room. The rooms are very old and tired looking. We had no issues with hot water or A/C. This resort is very small. Only one pool that is not very deep. Beach is beautiful as it is all over Varadero. Most staff are friendly. Security staff are very friendly. Entertainment is average. There is not much activities to do at this resort. It is a very quiet resort and one can get bored very easily here. We spent a lot of time off the resort. The buffet.... the first day there were so many flies that it was not appealing at all. This fly issue was a big turn off. I have been to other resorts and have never experienced flies to this extent. The food was fine. We always found something to eat that we liked. We did enjoy our vacation.
RECEPTION: Check in fast....Very friendly and courteous..Just ask and they will help with what they can.. NO PROBLEMSBEACH: Same as always,, GREAT,, Plenty of chairs and clean,,GREATBars,, Graet service at the Lobby bar,, Madelene and Aturo ,,Just the greatest,,I had a stomach prob and they made me a drink and it was a lot better after that so I had a few more,,,,Tonic water, salt, lemon juice and bitters,, Great stuffROOM: We had a room facing the pool and with balcony,, Nice and clean,,A little loud when the music started but that stops by 11 PM ENTERTAINMENT,,Games and bingo around pool, Nightly showsDINING:: They need to get more variety like carrots peas, fries and bacon,, Very bland so we ate out mostly,,Breakfast with omelets was good but they should have bacon..OVERALL:: Great vacation, staff just amazing ...WOULD I GO BACK??? IN A HEART BEAT!!!
Great hotel for the price. Awsome beach and great location to town. Basic rooms that are clean and safe. Pool was great after long day at the beautiful beach. Food will get you by, but if you can handle it there are good cheap burgers for 1.50 cuc or 12" pizza for 3.50 cuc that are in walking distance. Over all had a great time. Again for the price it was well worth it.
