“Very good for much cheapness”
Reviewed 17 October 2010

Decided to stay in this hotel when looking for a cheap short break for a few days restful sun soaking.
We paid an apsolute bargain deal for flights and this hotel and I am aware of the saying 'you get what you pay for' but this is not true of this hotel.
For what we paid, this hotel was more than adaquate, it was very clean, lovely staff, it is fairly nice looking inside too. Our room was basic, with no TV but very clean. We also had a fairly nice side view of the beach. We had breakfast every morning which was made up of a great selection of foods which was all pleasant.
It is very ideally situated across the road from a lovely beach which is what I was looking for in a holiday, there is a wide variety of gift shops and restaurants in the local area, the gift shops are all much of a muchness selling the usual tat. The restaurants we ate at were all nice.
The weather was awful for a day or so so we craved a british cup of tea, if you like to go to little england restaurants and cafes then I would recommend a little cafe just 2 mins walk form the hotel called The Hideaway but plenty of tapas bars etc if you want to go native.
It is only 15 mins walk from Magaluf whereas Palma Nova tends to accomodate the older tourist and familys which suited us fine.
This hotel tended to have an older clientele too, I think we were the youngest there being in oour late 20's but meant for a nice trouble free quiet hotel which is perfect.
All in all, perfect hotel for a cheap beach break where you can expect a good clean hotel with good service and good food.

My friends and I spent a fantastic September week at the hotel and enjoyed it thoroughly. We are all in our early 20s and were the youngest at the hotel by a long way. Although we didn't find this a problem, if you are expecting a lively atmosphere, you may prefer to search for other hotels.

The hotel itself was nice - buffet breakfast delicious and staff friendly. Our room was very dark and didn't get natural light so felt a bit stale at times. But, the room was cleaned thoroughly, beds were comfy and shower was good. We had a very cheap deal and got what we paid for and were happy with that. The swimming pool was small but nice - we found the sun stayed until about 3-4 when the tall buildings cast shadow so tended to move across the road to the beach then - not a problem.

Location was perfect too!

I would recommend this if you want a cheap and cheerful hotel with a relaxing atmosphere.

Stayed at the tropico from 1st to the 15th of September on a half board basis and loved every minute. Had my doubts before we arrived as I had read the negative reports, but we were made to feel welcome as soon as we walked through the door. We arrived two hours before check in time, but the girl on reception still found us a room straight away, and with a full sea view, brilliant. The rooms are quite large, with a decent size balcony, and with ample hanging space for your clothes. Contrary to reports, all of the staff were friendly and helpfull, even though they are always buisy (some people must expect a hand servant). The location is brill, in the centre of Pala Nova and straight across the road from the beach, which we used every day, as the pool area is, as reported in other reviews, a bit small. The meals were always well cooked and tasty, and the fruit is very fresh, although you do have to be prepared to queue for a table in the dining room if you go for your meal at busy periods, not that we found this a hardship. The hotel seems to attract middle aged and elderly guests, which suited us as it was always nice and quiet, although it is just a short stroll if you want to be amongst the noise. All in all there was nothing we could find to complain about, not that we were looking. We are looking to return next year, and taking our grand kids with us.

Its almost comical the way the waiters treat the customers here. They shout at you for nothing and argue amongst themselves. We thought we must be on candid camera the first night, until we got used to them and realised that that´s just how they behave. The reception staff were not much better and don´t bother reporting anything to them because they will do nothing about it and just be rude back to you. The rooms are very small and very basic. The pool is about the same size as the blow up kids paddling pool we´ve got at home. The only good thing is that it is in Plama Nova.
