We stayed 4 nights at this local gem, which is good value in an otherwise expensive but very nice area. The location is perfect, not far from a number of very good restaurants, shops and an excellent beach. A short walk up a steep hill that takes you off the main beach road and results in a quieter hotel atmosphere.
I would recommend this hotel to travelers who are looking for a smaller hotel with local charms as opposed to high end perfection and "pampering". If a traveler is seeking the latter, the other more fancy hotels within a stone's throw cost up to $750 more per night. One could complain about little things relative to the Tropical, but you get a lot for what you pay for relative to the environs.
The staff was friendly and the service was good. Rooms are not large but adequate and clean. The breakfast was included and was fine as continental breakfasts go. Beautiful and lush internal courtyard full of palms, ferms and tropical lushless, if you will, that added to a very attractive Caribbean atmosphere.
The website pictures provide an accurate description of the Tropical Hotel, which is helpful in making a decision. Often hotel pictures create a vision or image that is not experienced first hand. Not so with the Tropical.
We liked the place and would most surely return. Thanks Tropical for a great vacation.
