Great location, Clean Hotel

Hotel Tropicana is a nice place to stay if you are looking for a hotel with a great location right on the Los Muertos beach and are OK without having all the room amenities or updated room furnishings. Lobby-only wi-fi is not reliable, room beds can be firmer than sleepers enjoy (this stay the beds were more comfortable since they had pillow tops), TV is old and only had a few English channels, showers hotel grounds with pools are nice and well maintained. In a nutshell -- room is basic and clean, location is great on beach.

Great Location

Fantastic location and a very comfortable hotel - made only slightly less so by the female manager who was a little obsessed with paperwork.

Perfect PV Location

We originally booked a Junior Suite at this hotel. Upon checking into our room, we noted that the ocean view was limited and the noise level was high due to the construction of a new condo building across the street. We requested to be be moved to another room. The hotel staff was very accommodating in providing us with another room in a quieter area of the hotel complex. The room was very large and came with a kitchenette (fridge and 4-burner stove top). My only suggestion regarding the room would be to have it equipped with a microwave oven. This hotel offers excellent location and amenities at a reasonable cost. The only drawback is the Wi-Fi connection which is basically only available from the hotel lobby. The connection works but is sometimes quite slow. It would be nice to have wi-fe access directly from the hotel rooms.

Great Location

Great view of the ocean from my room. The bed mattress was VERY hard and a pad had to be applied just to sleep on it. Most disturbing was the absence of a dresser. I lived out of my suitcace for 10 days.

Best Vacation so far

This was great the hotel is in a perfect location, you are far away from new vallarta, if you're 18 and just looking to party and drink and be crazy this isn't the place for you. If you want to relax on the beach during the and be a walking distance from some bars and clubs at night and cheap food and drinks then this is your place.

Good, except for...

This hotel is decent, not upscale in anyway but not a pension or hostel. Nice pool and bar/restaurant area but the rooms are pretty basic. Great location. Only problem was that on arrival they indicated that they had given our room away. We had arrived by 2pm on the scheduled arrival date, yet they gave the room away anyway. The only option that was given to us was to pay an extra $120 for an upgrade. What was particularly annoying is that this was low season and the hotel was not by any means full.

Great selection of restaurants on Olas Altas. These are much cheaper than what you find on the Malecon and many offer a more uniquely Mexican dining experience.

Great vacation for wife and I

This is the second stay at the Tropicana. We got the next room up from the Standard. Room 423, it was excellent with a great ocean view and balcony. The grounds were kept immaculate along with the whole hotel area.We only ate one meal there breakfast. Which we the day we left as we waited for departure to the airport, and it was good.We did have a few drinks on property and they were very good as well as price! We had a friend book late as to join us on our vacation.She booked a Standard Room and I was a little nervous as to previous reports from others.She was given Room # 503 She was thrilled with it,as it was much like ours with a great pool and ocean view. The only downside was you only had WiFi in the lobby area. Not a big deal with me. I did mention that it was a factor to many travelers and people people had complained on numerous PVR message boards. The front desk said they would pass this up to their Superiors and had the complaint numerous times.
