My partner and I have just returned from Hotel Tropico Playa (19th-26th Sep 2009). We are a couple in our 20’s and we found this hotel suitable for our needs. We were very pleased with the central location directly facing the beach and surrounding many shops, bars and restaurants. Although we went half board we didn’t want to be restricted to the Hotel so we ate out most nights; however we had breakfast a few mornings and found a decent selection of foods (sausages, bacon, eggs, hash browns, beans etc). Be prepared to queue for quite a while to get into the dining room.
Our room was small but perfect for us, very clean with maid service everyday and fresh towels everyday too. The beds were very uncomfortable but we expected this. Our balcony had a big tree leaning into it so we didn’t spend much time out there with fear of attracting bugs and the lack of space. Air con in the rooms was great, we had it on constantly. Also recommend to get a safe for personal belongings.
We went on a few different trips including Marine Land, Katmandu and Pirates, all of which are highly recommended. The pool was small but clean and ideal for relaxing, however we preferred the beach which was just across the road and was beautiful (3.50 euro per bed). BE WARNED of people on the beach selling fresh pineapple, watermelons and juice, we decided to get some pineapple and were given 2 small slices at 10 euro, complete rip off!
A good sports bar with cheap drink and lovely food is “The Venetian Palace”. Ideal for any football fan as it shows all live matches on big screens.
Palma Nova is a beautiful, quiet resort however if you wish for more lively entertainment at night, Magaluf is within walking distance.
