Hotel Tropicana
Ranked #50 of 72 Hotels in Torremolinos
Reviewed 7 October 2012

The good points are the position being right on the front; the air conditioning and ceiling fan which worked well; the room being quiet. The BIG drawback is the appalling standard of the food. I booked half-board - the breakfast was stale rolls, the usual cheese and ham slices plus cereals. The cooked selection was scrambled egg and the fattiest bacon I have ever seen swimming in grease. The evening meal was luke-warm soup and either pork or chicken with chips every night. I complained to the reception and they just shrugged. Also, the hotel desperately needs refurbishment. Clearly nothing has been spent for years. It is supposedly 4 star but in truth is a mid-range 3 star. If you are seeking a 4 star pass on this one.

We have just stayed at the Tropicana when our previous booking was altered at the last moment. Hotel was fine, very clean, room a bit basic but not in there very much so quite adequate. Only problem was that our particular room did not have a balcony, we asked to change but hotel was fully booked! Breakfast was good with plenty of choice. One extra benefit was beach towels provided, 20 euros deposit and obviously get all this back. Taking into account having to be aware of luggage allowance it is worth using. Would stay here again, it is in an excellent location for bars and restaurants in La Cariheula

Stayed here in May 2012 with my wife. Great location right on the promenade, can't fault the hotel in any way, helpful staff. Will definitely return.

The restaurant is very popular and has a fantastic location.

Room Tip: Pay for the full sea view on a high floor and enjoy...

Stayed over an early October weekend. Reception on arrival first class and the sea view room 2 floors up amazing. Location to promenade and beach is second to none. We liked the base at la carihuela for easy access to the 2 neighbouring bigger resorts (Torremolinos and Benalmadena respectively). For better results as they say, stay by the Tropicana its more peaceful and a great place to rest. We liked the room, cleanliness, sweet coffee at breakfast, room vista , complimentary fridge and supermarket next door . Also used the beach side tropicana beach bar where in full sun it just doesn't get any better. Not so keen on sunlounge hire from reception for beach which is not really discounted (thought there are free loungers in tropicana garden and a pool) and we thought the cycle hire was enough to purchase a bike let alone hire one for the day - 30 euros. Park your bike here and enjoy a great stay for couples , we will return.

I only stayed in one room the night before our wedding which we had on the beachinfront of the hotel and then the meal and disco in the resteraunt. My room had a stunning view of the sea and the bed was very comfortable the only down side was that the air con needed to be fixed so my room was a little stuffy for part of my stay. At breakfast the cooked selection wasn't amazing but I had some nice pastries and coffee (to be honnest I was too nervous to eat so I'm probably not the best person to review the food). The staff couldn't do enough for us during the wedding and the barman Fernando is a little legend he stayed up with us until around 3.30am when we decide we were all discoed out. All the waiting staff were great with the guest and I would strongly recommend the Tropicana for anyone who wants a beach wedding. The Mango was a great place for our wedding breakfast and the disco area underneath is perfect we could party all night and not disturb the other guests due to it's location.

Room Tip: Choose a sea view it's stunning

I recently stayed at hotel tropicana and was pleasently suprised by how nice and convienient the hotel was. The location could not have been any better right on the beach front and the staff were all very helpful, we had a nice sea view and the room was very clean and tidy (cleaned every day).
The food was good buffet breakfast to cater all taste and overall was great value for money.
On arrival our room was avalible instantly and on departure they looked after our luggage for the day as we had a late flight. Overall if you are looking for a very good hotel which is affordable and has a great locaton this would be it. I feel sure that i will stay here again .
