So we all know bedbugs are a given in hotels. The thing that makes a difference is how you are treated as a guest. I recently spent seven nights at this hotel. One night in an upgraded room on night two became a nightmare for me. The front desk staff were less than helpful, however, on day 6 I finally...

We stayed at the Tropicana for a fast, busy weekend in PVR. We had walked by the hotel numerous times but had never stayed. It is a very good hotel. There are some quirks but overall, I was happy and would come back. We did not get an ocean view room - we were in 401 - it is at...

I arrived at the Tropicana for a 10 day stay from March 20 to March 30. The following is my honest opinion of the property and the staff... I had emailed the hotel the week prior to my arrival requesting a room with an ocean view on an upper floor. They replied to my email, stating they could not guarantee...

I am sure at onetime this was the nicest and fanciest hotel in Puerto Vallarta. It is still good! The pools are pleasant, the beach is wonderful, and the room and hotel facilities were clean. This hotel is close to the action along the beach and the Malecon. The beds were firm (hard!) and we got almost scalded in the...

My husband and I spent three weeks in Mexico. The Tropicana was recommended by three women we met traveling down to Melaque so we booked a standard room for $950 pesos for our last three nights in PV. We weren't disappointed. While it didn't have a view or wifi, our room was big and comfortable. We had a cross breeze...

I arrived at Tropicana on Mar 13. We had booked a standard room with breakfast. We arrived very early at 10AM but fortunately our room was ready. It was on the 3rd floor of the tallest tower. We were very impressed with the room. It lloked like it was recently renovated with a king size bed, newer furniture & a...

This hotel caters to middle-class Mexicans. It is on the beach, and priced at a fraction of the cost of similar hotels. It is a bit past it’s prime, but still very functional. The furniture, lamps, refrigerators and such were a little dated but they still worked well. The entire hotel was clean. The Oceanside pools were immaculate. As a...
