“A Nice Little "Out of The Way Place...."”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 June 2012

This place can be described with the joining of two well known adages where this is a " nice little out of the way place that nobody knows where what happens here, stays here!" Located near the Coastline on the highway of the Americas, this place is so well camoflauged among other structures that if you're not specifically looking for it, you'll just pass it by. When you enter the lobby, you won't be surprised either and you'll probably get a not-so-good impression....The magic (if any) is when you enter the second door in the lodging areas. It is an enclosed little paradise where you will have available what you'll need for a decent stay. There is a pool and a restuarant that is really good for dinner if you want to try Dominican cuisine and a taxi immediately available when you need it. I stayed for 4 days (6-10 June) and each day was as quiet and tranquil the next. I enjoyed breakfast and coffee each morning by the pool and headed out into the city to do my business & pleasure at the hotel. The rooms were spacious and comfortable. Housekeeping was very efficient and professional. The air condition worked superbly and there was a small refrigerator which kept my locally purchased beer and bottle water cold all the time. The hotel has a little room in the lobby where you can access the internet if you want to print out your itinerary or search for info. Just ask them to turn on the A/C for your and you're good to go. hot/cool water were available everytime I bathed. There is even a Club right next door called "Mytos" if you wanted to get your "dance" on. Do not even try to compare this place with those hotels on the "Malecon" or Punta Cana...this place has it's own magic and is worth the price. Don't expect this hotel to provide you activities. When coming here, you should already have a plan on what you want to do. If you arrive with your rented vehicle, they even have a gated compound in the back part of the hotel for security. Truly a place worth considering if you want ritzy "malecon-hotel" type service at HALF the price! My compliment to the Hotel Tropicana for execellent service!

Room Tip: 1. "When in Rome, do as the Romans." Hence, learn Spanish or at least get frustrated with...
