NOT BAD

THE POOL HAS A WATERSLIDE, MOST DON'T. WIFI IS AVAILABLE NEAR THE FRONT DESK ONLY , A LITTLE INCONVENIENT DEPENDING ON YOUR ADDITION TO THE INTERNET, AND IT WAS ACTUALLY BETTER THAN AT COSTA LINDA FOR DATA TRANSFER RATE. THE RESORT COULD USE SOME MAINTENANCE, BUT IT IS GETTING BETTER EVERY YEAR. WE STAY THERE ON WEDNESDAY AND THURSDAY NIGHTS BEFORE GOING TO OUR TIME SHARE UNIT FOR THE PAST 5 YEARS. THERE ARE TWO POOLS,ONE WITH A POOL BAR AND WATER SLIDE AND THE OTHER HAS A WATER FALL. THERE IS A DUNKIN DOUGHNUTS AND PIZZA BOBS THAT WAS GOOD FOR BREAKFAST AND LUNCH.THE CASINO NEXT IS BEING RENOVATED NOW. THE ONLY REAL DRAWBACK IS BEING LOCATED BEHIND LACABANNA WHICH IS ACROSS THE ROAD FROM THE BEACH. YOU CAN WALK THROUGH LACABANNA LOBBY AND POOL AREA TO GET TO THE BEACH. THE BEACH STARTS AT LACABANNA AND IS A NICE WALK ALL THE WAY TO THE DIVI DIVI HOTEL, BEYOND THAT IS ROCKY AND NOT AS NICE. I WILL CONTINUE TO STAY THERE IN THE FUTURE.

extra night stay

The people at the front desk were excellent. Very friendly and helpful. It is not the most elegant hotel on the island, but it is an excellent value for families and people that are looking for a reasonable rate hotel on the island. Why pay > $200 a night for a bed? We do not use any of the hotel amenities, but are just looking for a comfortable bed for an extra night on the island ( after our time share week is over.). We rent a car and have a blast on the island enjoying the beach, restaurants and other activities on the island. We are not hotel dwellers that need hotel entertainment, but there is a small casino, pizza restaurant and nice pool on the property. Very good value for a night in Aruba.

Aruba is still growing. Great location for excellent dining, beach , shopping (check out the new stores behind the downtown Mall while riding the free trolley.) Always something new to discover during each visit.

Don't waste your time or money

We arrived on time and check in was at 4 pm, they politely took our money, deposit and then asked us to wait 30 minutes for our room to be ready. We inquired what we should do with our bags and were told to just wait in the lobby until the room was ready. After back and forth for the entire 30 minutes, they finally compensated us with breakfast at Pizza Bobs for our party of 3. There were random bugs crawling in the bathroom and kitchen. When we called to inform them, they simply came to the room and wiped if off with a soapy towel and walked out. The bugs came back. The wifi has to be picked up in the lobby, bikini bar or Pizza Bobs and even then it is extremely slow due to 10 people sitting around use it at the same time as well as it constantly went out. At check out, we were not told that local calls in Aruba, even down the street were charged. We were charged for calling around to plan activities. My advise, pay a little more and you will enjoy your vacation better.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Take the local buses that pick up along the beach, only costs $2.30 rather than the expensive taxis.

Falls short of expectations

We.ve been to Aruba before and stayed at other resorts but I would rate the Tropicana below our other experiences. Average to below average on all counts.

Good value

Not top of the line, but surely adequate for the job. Room fiixtures/finishings a bit "tired", but whole experience worth it. Nice pools and activities, but poor showing on wi-fi availabili`ty. Location near main roads, sea-sides, restaurants and great food shopping is a plus.

Affordable, Great Birthday Getaway

First and foremost AMAZING, the hotel staff was friendly, inviting, and informative. The location was great near downtown. The casino was on the grounds which made gambling an ease. The information desk was helpful with planning and organizing all of out island adventures. Also there was a full grocery store behind the property that sold everything from pharmaceutical needs to liqueur to grocery to souvenirs. The only negatives I experience was the pool closed 10pm as well as the hot tub. There wasn't a shuttle to or from the airport. The manager of the hotel restaurant was rude as well.

Low Budget Room

The staff is very nice, but the rooms are in need of extensive upgrades. We used this as a low cost two night stay untill we could check in at our timeshare. Would not want to spend a vacation in the room we had.
