DON'T BOOK IT!

The pictures of this hotel, must have been from when it was first built! The hotel is incredibly dirty, the pics are very misleading, don't do it!!! The room was filthy, there was no working AC, the kitchen was falling apart, the bed sheets were yellow... it was just horrific. We didn't bother staying, we immediately went to the front lobby and got a refund (which was processed so quickly we could tell we weren't the first)

not the right choice

I always give the benefit of the doubt when booking and choosing hotels. Knowing that the pictures are not up to date and are taken at the best angles. In all my travels, i have never seen a hotel that was in this bad of disrepair, and I was 'upgraded' to their sister hotel next door!! The only 2 good things were this hotel was right across from the beach and I only stayed one night. The 'breakfast' in the morning consisted of stale bagels and coffee...nothing else!!

Location & Cheap

Tropical Cay was located near all the nightlife. The room needed many repairs. Very outdated, no towels in the rooms and when I did get towels they were very hard (not soft to clean your body with). Not much hot water from the shower and from the faucet no cold water. Tile falling off walls in bathroom but for the price it was worth it.
