We traveled June 4th to the 11th. This was my third trip back all girls and no I'm not a gold member. Why do I go back you ask? To see my friends on the animation team Lenny Kravitz and Jorge of the Jungle mostly as they are like familia or best amigos! Miss you guys already boys! All the animation team is amazing!
Love doing water aerobics with John Cena, Lenny Kravitz and now Salami! Spanish with mi Lenny, Poolside games with all the boys in the afternoon but in the morning with Puchy Puchy and Mosquito and John.
Do not let me forget the guy with the hardest busiest job of all in the towel booth mi amigo Jorge of the Jungle! It's a pure joy to see him every morning and evening greeting you with a smile, playing chess, ping pong or connect 4 or just chatting it up. Always add some books or magazines to his personal library too.
All the guys are amazing and friendly and really try to keep you happy, be personable and keep the party going. Very special thanks to mi fave amor Lenny, mi bestest friend Jorge, John, Puchy, Salami and Mosquito. Thanks for keeping us entertained by the pool and at all the nightly shows. Oh and I loved seeing Carmelo again, another Sweetheart from my first trip!
BIG SHOUT OUT to my special bartender Andreas! He remembers be every time! He is the best bartender at the tropical pool even though many people probably don't tip at the pool this dude rocks. We have a special hand shake and no matter how many times I go for a drink or ton of drinks for the group he's always happy to see me and doesn't make me wait to long. Love this guy. It's just like if you were at home TIP your bartender and be kind. Hope to see you soon Andreas!
My only complaint is that we didn't have a tag on our door for DND/Room Cleaning. Tho we tipped well our room wasn't cleaned and didn't get towels or water everyday until we called and complained. I don't like complaining so that sucked. Our shower seemed clogged a couple times too but then kicked on and worked well. Our room was very clean overall and smelled good!
Also want to give a shout to Jacqueline the best Waitress at Casablanca. You were by far the most attentive girl. We love you and will look for you next time. A couple days we didn't even leave tips because nobody came to even get us a drink or anything. If Jacqueline is there you will be taken care of. No worries!
We did visit Confressi for the beach, and 4 other pools along with the Pearl buffet. That hotel is very nice but lots of stairs and walking not good for old people or those with disabilities.
Anyhow if I make it back a 4th time will definitely be staying at tropical to see mi DR family Lenny, Jorge, John and Andreas! Miss you guys already!! Both the VIP Party and Welcome Party were amazing.
Suggestion have another club. Ice is a bit small and musty.
