This is a clean and comfortable hotel in a great location on the beach and within a short walk to many great restaurants, shops and the Malecon. The service at the hotel was very good. The biggest drawback to this hotel is that they only have Wi-fi in the lobby and as of Jan 2013 it seemed to have a capacity below the need. There are many coffee shops and restaurants with Wi-fi nearby. We visited this with young adults (17 and 20) and friends who also had a teen and we felt that this location worked for the diversity of out group. Try the parasailing out front.

Room Tip: We were first floor on the street side and it could have been quieter. Best rooms are probably third or fourth floor by the ocean.

If you are looking for a hotel without the frills which is excellent, this is the place for you. This hotel does not offer an all inclusive plan, which is great if you are the type to venture out. If you just want to spend all your time at the hotel, this is not the choice. The standard rooms are facing the ocean with an amazing unobstructed view. We were on the fifth floor. Very good beds and reasonably appointed rooms. Bathrooms are good, they provide shampoo and moisturizer daily and of course soap. Water pressure in shower is good, however, as in PV, you dont always get very hot water. There is bottled water available on each floor so you can fill up your own. WiFi is available at reception area but it is weak most days. Maid service is efficient and the place is really clean. Mind you, it is a huge property, 2 swimming pools, a restaurant and its own beach area with palapas and chairs. Very well maintained. Staff is very friendly, security is pretty tight. Would most definitely return and recommend.

Room Tip: Standard rooms have an unobstructed ocean view. Get the higher floors.

We've been going to Puerto Vallarta for years. We love staying in the Romantic Zone and usually stay at Playa los Arcos which is also a very good property!
However, this was a last minute trip and the rate was better so we decided to give the Tropicana a try after reading the reviews on trip advisor.
This is one of the best decisions we've ever made. The rooms were clean and even the Standard room we were in had a direct beach view. Also they are doing some renovating and when we checked in they didn't have any rooms with a king bed. We had one of the older rooms which we thought was just fine. However, the next day they moved us to a renovated room with a king bed which was very nice!
The grounds were nice with 2 pools and the staff was very nice and helpful. And of course you're right on the beach and there are more restaurants than you can count within a short walk. Love the place and will be back!

Room Tip: If you get a standard room try to get a room that's been renovated.

The hotel is average - clean and basic accommodations with spectacular views (we had a superior room in the new building) in a perfect location. We could walk to so many restaurants - easy walk to The Malecon and other shopping. the service was great and the price can't be beat. I would stay there again for sure!

For the last couple of years now we take an annual vacation to PV in Mexico and we always try to stay at this hotel. It is located on the beach in the old town. If you are looking for a super fancy hotel with all of the amenities you should book elsewhere. Having said that we love the place. The rooms are very plain but clean and spacious. The beds are firm but not uncomfortable. The staff is super friendly and accommodating and they keep the place very clean. There are also a ton of restaurants in the area which is why they do not offer all inclusive. Some rooms, but not all offer fantastic views of the Pacific. WiFi access is dodgy and when you get a connection it is usually only availble in the hotel lobby. I would recommend this place to any travellers that go to PV.

Room Tip: If you need a tv or A/C, you must specify. The beds tend to be either two doubles or one king. I would avoid rooms near the pool unless you are an early riser or don't mind noise in the morning.
