Beautiful view of the ocean

The room was large and had an incredible view of the ocean. The kitchen was very very small very hot no fan in the kitchen which the cockroaches loved being in the hot kitchen cockroaches were in the cupboards around all the dishes and the silverware. We ended up going across the street to the mini supermarket and getting plastic utensils and paper plates and kept all food and plates in the frig so the cockroaches couldn't get to them. There is no customer service at all in this hotel. But the views from the room was incredible

What's not to love !?

Really can't say anything bad about this place .. the stay was amazingly pleasant from the moment we arrived to the second we left ! Rooms are quite spacious, I booked a superior room and a standard size single room ... both were more than great! I mean - perhaps is not an extremely luxurious place, but it is nice enough, beds are confortable, rooms constantly cleaned and area secured! There is no wifi on the rooms, which is not a bad thing, you're on vacations --- get your head out of the freaking phone for a chance ! The pool is more of a family area, but the ocean front sits available for hotel guess is a more relaxing zone for adults, enjoy the happy hour with their tasty margaritas and just let yourself go into the Vallarta ambiance, you get to see stunning sunsets and as the sun goes down, the beautiful port just a few steps away from you will start lighting up for you to see why they call this area the "Romantic Zone" -/ it truly is! ... food was also great at an affordable price!

Great place right on the beach

This is a medium hotel complex in a fantastic location right on the beach (has it's own section with palapas) and a short walk to all the amazing restaurants in the Romantica Zone. We have stayed here MANY times. The staff bend over backward (have been the same people for many years) to ensure you have a fantastic visit. The rooms aren't luxury but it is incredibly clean. The grounds are lovely, there are two pools, a nice bar and restaurant. It's best to get a superior or at least ocean view room and add the breakfast plan on. Do note that this place is somewhat old school in that the rooms have actual keys and there is only one given - so there's some coordination if there's more than one person staying. Also, the wifi is only available in the lobby and it isn't the greatest. That being said, last time we were there in the new tower in a room overlooking the pool area, we were able to pick up public wifi. The water in the building is not drinkable, so they have a pitcher and glasses in your room and large water dispenser in the hall. Only the family suites have fridges and there are no ice machines. We have gotten a styrofoam cooler and ice from the handy small market across the street which sells some basic groceries - including an amazing salsa they make onsite.

Central Old Town, Great Beach Location

I love the Tropicana. It is not a luxury hotel by any means, but it has a charm and character to it that make it a perfect destination in Puerto Vallarta. The people are friendly, the price is right, and the pool/beach location are ideal. If they added in-room wifi and included a fridge in the rooms it would be pretty close to perfect. I wouldn't stay anywhere else in PV.

Dissappointed with the new policy

We have been going to the Tropicana in Puerto Vallarta for many years. We love the location, staff and grounds. We recently tried to book ocean view rooms for next February and were informed that due to their new policy, they couldn't guarantee what rooms we would get. Either the rooms are available or they aren't. I don't understand why they can't guarantee. We don't like the street rooms because they are noisy and frankly can smell at times. We are very disappointed but will need to book elsewhere.
