Tropicana Aruba Resort & Casino

Recent guest reviews

Nice place, they do have construction going on, very loud at times. I would stay there again.

Not a bad place to stay with family but when they tried to sell me a timeshare last springbreak when I had to decide between them and Divi they told me that most units would be remodeled and that was false. I stayed here for Easter bc it was a last minute decision and good pricing being that my week at the Divi is for November! Aruba is by far my destination of choice!!

Convenient location to the beautiful Eagle Beach. Renovations in the rooms are great! We have a 3bedroom/2bath room and everyone’s happy. Only downside is that while the 2 pools are nice, there’s nothing else to do. No activities for the kids, nor grownups. Fortunately LaCabana is across the lot, on the way to the beach. Their casino and amenities are amazing and they allow the kids to participate in activities for the same fees (if any) as their own guests.

While I liked the location and the room layout, it had its downfalls. The room smelled like urine. It is old and the furniture is old and uncomfortable. The workers are nice but we were asked to tour the facility at least 20 times in 4 days. The beach towel policy is too strict. We need more than 1 towel per person to use at the beach or pool.

Very content with hotel being so close to one of the best beaches in the world. All suites which are grea but tired...Copa has been improving but is more interested in the sale of their time shares!

very pleasant staff. newly renovated room...good location

Having a great time at the beach. Grocery store was literally next door.

I loved the stay. The room was clean. The beds were comfortable. Pablo was the best!! I would definitely return. The only thing i wasnt aware of was the internet was almost non existent in the room, however, this was not much of an issue-- the internet was fine in the common areas, and by the time we got back to the room-- t was bedtime.

We had a great experience in a recently renovated room that was new and clean. Service kept the room that way all week. It was also quiet and not noisy with lots of music which we like.

Staff was pleasant. Lobby and hotel in general could use updating and renovation. Good location on Eagle Beach, close to town and Palm Beach. Cabana resort and hotel in front of Tropicana was very nice. Tropicana is a no frills hotel.

5 mins from the beach, restaurants. 10 minutes walk to supermarket.

2nd time stay at the Tropicana. Good place for the value. Renovations still going on with no end in sight. Hear multiple stories on what the final project will look like. Big plans by very little information on what it will look like. Would love to see an artist rendition of the final. Pizza by Bob is being replaced, again stories of big renovation and additional restaurants. Nothing concrete yet. They push timeshare purchases but very confusing. How do you consider buying a timeshare at a place you don’t know what will be there. Big plans but little information. One big complaint, the free WiFi is terrible. Inconsistent and weak, can purchase a usb upgrade but won’t work on Apple or Kindle. Very bothersome for a place touting a 10 million dollar renovation in progress. Have to wonder if Tropicana will complete project or dump it.

Very good experience. All suites hotel with king size beds and good amenities. Facility is across the street from Eagle Beach which is one of the BEST of 10 beaches in the world. Have stayed here many times and will continue to do so. They also do have a casino!

My friend and I wanted to stay for extra days after using my timeshare at La Cabana. We were able to get a great deal at the Tropicana. We did stay in one of the rooms that has not yet gotta an update, which was not a problem. Rooms are set up well and spacious. I do have 2 Note that our room had very small ants they believe they tried to spray for prior to us getting there. We told the front desk but still within our four days had the ants nothing that was overly concerning. I also assumed that they would do the complimentary coffee in the room since the coffee pot is there but we got no condiments whatsoever I couldn't even get a roll of paper towels from them. Thank God I don't spend much time in the room the rest of the facility is gorgeous and how can you really complain about anything when you're in Aruba. LoL I definitely stay again especially cuz they're putting so much money into redoing the place.

Not to many choices to eat at hotel, price of food high. Had to get up early to get spot on beach. Felt like going to work!!

Everyone here was very friendly Rooms were very nice

It's a excellent hotel with a good service and great placements for go to the beach and another hotels.

In need of major renovation and up date. Rooms look drab and furniture is chipped, sofas dirty and stained. Staff should get customer service retraining. Will never recommend.

Great amenities on site. Pizza Bob's has the best food. Anything on the menu is great. Dunkin Donuts and Baskin Robbins right on site. Happy hour is available at both Pizza Bob's and the swim up bar. Keeps you happy all the time. Choice of fun slide pool with swim up bar or beautiful quiet waterfall pool. Pools are immaculately kept. Newly refurbished rooms are super nice, big and comfortable. Staff is very accommodating and helpful. Short walk to one of the best beaches in the world with any and all water sport options. Also, just across the street from Super Foods store for all your shopping needs. This resort does not disappoint. Great dining options within short walking distance and everything you want for additional optional dining and entertainment is within a 5 minute cab ride. So much fun.

Hotel staff went above and beyond to make sure you was having a great time.
