I recently visited Hotel Tropicana with friends. We opted for self-catering accommodation because it was cheaper and we suspected that we may have sporadic eating times (we went for the night-life). There were positive and negative aspects to the Hotel although we were pleased with our stay on the whole;
1. On arrival, hotel staff were extremely helpful and answered all of of our questions. This was continued throughout the week when we needed questions answered about the local area.
2. Although our room was definitely not 4*, it was clean and spacious enough for four people. It was basic but catered for all of our needs.
3. The location for the beach is fantastic. For the night-life, you have to walk for 20 or so minutes to Benalmadena. There is a Mercadona just around the corner, which is very cheap and provides all the groceries you could need.
4. The pool is lovely and clean and usually quiet.
5. The taxi sent by the Hotel was a Mercedes, a nice surprise after the cramped flight!
6. Cleaning is only every 3 days, so the floor gets a bit dirty, but a thorough job was carried out.
7. The self catering accommodation is in a different building to the main hotel but is still secure as the front door requires a key.
8. You must visit the pizzeria on the corner of the road joining to the hotel's road. They are made in front of you and are delicious. The best pizza I have ever tasted!
A finishing note; we were expecting 4*, but we were naive. You cannot expect a four star hotel for the little amount of money paid. Bare this in mind and check with the hotel BEFORE you book.
Would recommend for those not looking for anything too fancy (although no idea what the rooms in the actual hotel are like)!
