“Worth visiting again”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 March 2014 via mobile

We were saved by Tropicana Hotel when a Hotwire booking turned out to be a disaster. Normally we book a condo...but Tropicana provided us a fresh view and we would definitely stay there again...especially given the unbelievable savings!! Close to everything, right in the beach!! Highly recimmended

We read a lot of really good reviews of the Tropicana and based our decision to stay there on those reviews. We have stayed in a number of hotels and resorts in Puerto Vallarta, including the Villa del Palmar, the Rosita, the San Marino and we have checked out a number of others. In the Old Town area, this is our favourite and we will certainly stay there again. We totally agree with the recommendation to upgrade to the superior room , which for us was only $30.00 cdn per person for the week. We also decided pay a little extra to get breakfast included and it was
well worth it. The food was good and their was some variety. The staff are all very helpful and friendly. We found our room the be clean and the maid service was very good. The grounds of the hotel are very nice and the pool is better than good. The location right on the beach is wonderful. We like walking around a lot and there are plenty of great restaurants, bars, shops, etc. close by. Although the hotel is right on the edge of Old Town, it is a couple of blocks away from the "main drag" so it is quite quiet.

Very good! Older hotel,some rooms have been renovated,expect to add $20 per day to upgrade to a superior room if you want any kind of a good view! Ours was on 9th floor and was fantastic! Very clean we had breakfast included, it was OK. The location is so super good AMD not having to walk much to get to pool and beach is nice

Room Tip: Upgrade to higher floors or the other tower

First time staying downtown. Before at fiesta Americana and buenaventura. 100 times better than buenaventura. Still love fiesta...but location was the key.. we walked each day for meals..everything close. only problem..hotel had no white wine for 4 days. No one would help. We had to supply our own. Unacceptable in my opinion. Never saw management the 10 days we were there..sad..Front desk staff was wonderful..and my maid was superb.hotel was spotless..clean is important to me..will be back..

We absolutely loved the Tropicana. Stayed for 10 days and will return next year. The room was clean, staff was great, and our ocean facing junior suite was just what we wanted. Location. Location. Location. It is on a great strip of beach close to great restaurants and entertainment. This hotel must have been the belle of the beach in it's day, but it is still a good 3 star....fully adequate for the traveler who wants to explore Mexico beyond the all inclusive "blah" experience.

Room Tip: An ocean facing superior room or suite is worth the extra money..

On the beach, great room with balcony facing the beach, lovely staff, restaurants, pools, location downtown close to all the action but the hotel was quiet. Would definitely stay there again. It's rated only a 2.5 star and I'm not sure why. I would give it a 3.5 star!

Stayed in a standard room that was recently remodeled, standard rooms now have in room safes,
(had to wait a day for a lock but it was better than using the boxes behind the front desk)
Great view from balcony, comfortable king bed and powerful shower.
