THE RESORT ITSELF IS OLD AND NASTY THERES NO WIFI IN THE ROOM ONLY IN THE LOBBY THE STAFF IS SO FRIENDLY THEY TRY TO HELP YOU SO MUCH THE ONLY GOOD THING IS THERE RIGHT NEXT TO EAGLE BEACH TOP 2 BEACH IN THE WORLD

I definitely recommend this hotel to anyone who is traveling on a budget and just wants to stay somewhere that is clean, well kept, and close to all. Stayed here recently for 5 days was upgraded to a 1 bedroom suite. every single employee at this resort is sweet and helpful. Gorgeous water fall and swim up bar pool with happy hours. Smack in the middle of the resort is a out door tiki restaurant and bar delicious food. I loved the casino made some extra money on black jack :) Great for families with children, and couples. Not so much of a single scene here if you are single better off looking for a hotel out in Palm beach. To get to the beach is a 8 minute walk have to walk through the La Cabana Beach Hotel to get directly to the gorgeous beach. We had breakfast and lunch a few times at the La Cabana Beach restaurant. We BBQ'd at our hotel Tropicana had an amazing time needs to be rated a 4.5 start resort!

Didn't like that the room was cold all the time even when i set it but the staff kept changing it back to 63

There isn't a comment that I would like to submit. Thank you!

We were originally going to stay at a 4 star condo for over a $1000.00 more for the wk. but decided last minute to change and glad we did!. We traveled with our 19 and 20 yr old children and even though the condos were outdated, they were clean and comfortable. The beach is a very short walk through the La Cabana Resort across from the Tropicana. I believe they were originally part of each other in the past but have now separated. Even so they allow you to walk right through their Resort and you also have reserved beach chairs on the beach along with them! The staff was very friendly and if I had to complain about 1 thing it would be that they need bartenders who know how to make more than just a couple of drinks. Overall I would recommend the Tropicana if you are looking for a non congested laid back vacation with beautiful beach!!

Perfect location for an inexpensive stay on the best beach in Aruba. Eagle beach just 200 yards away and an even shorter walk to the major supermarket on the island.

I THINK THE HOTEL WOULD BE OK IF YOU HAD A ROOM THAT WAS UPGRADED. OUR WASN'T! THE OTHER ISSUE THAT YOU SHOULD REALIZE IS THAT YOU HAVE TO GO ACROSS THE PARKING LOT AND THROUGH THE NEXT HOTEL AND THEIR SWIMMING POOL AREA THEN CROSS THE ROAD TO GET TO THE BEACH!

Unfortunately, all of the rooms are not renovated. The rooms that weren't renovated like mine were very old and worn including low water pressure in the teal bathtub/shower. The food at the pizza place was aweful. It is also behind la cabana resort- not on the beach. Only plus was waking distance to super food.

They are not patient, not explaining things clearly and very rude to customers.

When I booked on line, it was hard to tell where was a good location from maps. Tropicana was out a bit (hence cheaper?) We did take a bus tour around 1/2 the island & did a snorkel adventure w/ lunch. They were fun. If we didn't do that, I would had to try to get place by bus or cab or possibly rent a car. I really wished the hotel offered wifi in every room w/out an extra charge. I had to go down 4 flights every time I wanted to go on line. The restaurant is ok? To get pizza to the room would have been $27.00, kind of high. I wanted to try the Driftwood Restaurant but we were there @ 2:30 & it didn't open until 5. Aruba was nice to visit (a little humid) & I would recommend it.

Overall a good experience, large one bedroom apartment, a little bit dated. Friendly personnel.

Paid extra for a deluxe room and called Tropicana to verify my reservations were for one of their remodeled rooms (have stayed here before). The staff confirmed that my reservation would be a remodeled room. Upon check in, it was not a remodeled nor even an upgraded room. This room was is disrepair, old, and worn. Cabinets were chipped as were the countertops in the kitchen; chipped tile everywhere in the entire condo; drilled holes in the shower that had not been repaired; no washer and dryer as described; the sofa cushions would not fit on the sofa and kept pushing you off the sofa and was extremely uncomfortable; not bedspread/cover on the beds-just sheets. The housekeeping was good but the property was in disrepair. I spent an hour and half with the check in staff to get the room I was promised but to no avail. I did email the general manager and he had one of the other managers to contact me....they would give me a remodeled room if I paid them $40 per night! I did bargain with them (which I should not have had to do) and got it down to $20 per night but I should NOT have had to pay anything. It was NOT a pleasant stay. In the end, we did not change rooms because I did not feel I should have to pay them anything for the room I booked. Will NOT stay there again.

We had a fast and friendly check in. Staff was real friendly and helpful to all our needs. I would stay here again as long as I was in the new section.

Good rooms for the price, although need to be renovated. Full kitchen in case you feel like cooking while on your vacation. We mainly used the room to sleep, shower, and change. Short walk to the beach and supermarket. Also, bus stop is near by for trips to palm beach and downtown. 2 pools on grounds, one has a swim up bar. Live music and kareoke over the weekend by the pool.

Hotel was run down in the rooms, obviously had some use in the day. Not updated much. Hotel staff was nice and helpful. Wifi only strong at pool and lobby. Beds were not comfortable at all, pillows not comfortable. Ok for a time share, not a holiday inn or a Hilton. Seemed like it was all old people at hotel, very scarce young people.

Had to change rooms due to the smell and unclean conditions. The second room was a little better.

Excellent location and overall value for price, would stay here again .

Stayed in 3 bedroom unit. Plenty of room. Full kitchen. Short walk to beach. The staff was friendly and the food at restaurant good.

not the best hotel, but certainly not the worst. great value for the budget minded. Not directly on the beach, but close walk. spacious well appointed rooms though the furniture is very dated. Started to smell pretty moldy by the second day.

Ii loved stay in this hotel everything was clean and the staff is amazing!!
