    Great hotel for the price
    For the price we paid it was excellent. We stayed in one of the dated apartments as it was cheaper. The bedroom was not dated the living room furniture, kitchen and bathroom were a little dated but everything was spotlessly clean with bedding and towels changed daily. The apartments are huge. The location is great with a short walk though the hotel opposite to the beach. There were plenty of beds under shades if you got there before 10 and some days there was availability all day. Security patrolled the beach and anyone who left towels on for over 1.5 hrs were removed to allow others to use them which was great. There are a few restaurants around the hotel and a 10 min taxi journey took you to high rise for $8 each way, which is really lively with lots of restaurants to choose from. The self drive jeep off road safari, which can be booked within the hotel by the lifts is a great way to explore the island but not for the faint hearted. Had a great time in Aruba and we wouldn’t hesitate to stay at the Tropicana next time

    Old and dated
    Reasonable comfortable although the decor of the older units is dated. Newer units are overpriced... internet is spotty and drops often ... Eagle beach is lovely and well with the visit..

    Needs a little love but clean. Highly recommend!
    I stayed at the Tropicana mid April. I had read the reviews and decided that I needed a room to stay in but I would be out and about for most of my time there so I wasn't too bothered about it looking old. I was right to make this choice! The room was ginormous! Kitchen with full size fridge, cooker etc. Dining room table, sofa and tv. Then the bedroom and bathroom also massive. So much storage! It was also very clean. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. I had a pedicure which I am still in love with! In order to get to the beach you have to walk to the opposite hotel, La Cabana and through the other side. Less than a 5 minute walk. You have a band so that the beach staff know you are staying in the hotel. Find the green tshirts and they will help you with the sun loungers! Happy hour also continues on the beach :) If you need somewhere comfortable, a bargain and not that bothered about it needing a little love in places then I would highly recommend!

    Great holiday
    We enjoyed our stay at the Tropicana resort. Room was well equipped but basic. I can imagine the resort was beautiful when new but at the moment it's showing its age compared to modern resorts. The resort is well kept and spotlessly clean and they are in the middle of an upgrade which didn't bother us at all. The staff were very friendly and helpful and fresh towels were available daily if needed. Wifi was not available in our room but it was available in the reception area, pizza bobs, casino, bikini bar and Dunkin donuts. The shopping centre for those who prefer self catering is a fair walk away across a very busy highway, so be careful and get the correct directions. Food onsite is quite good, pizza bobs is worth a visit, and the Double down restaurant in the casino is great for a breakfast. For eating out we recommend visiting- Driftwood, Seasalt, and El Gouchos in the centre. $10 taxi to all. A good local restaurant is Mangos. There's plenty to see and do, just ask the concierge for advice. All trips etc pick up and drop off at the resort. Take you cameras out, even inside the resort as the local wildlife will pose for a photo and if offered, finish your snacks!! The iguanas are harmless and will approach you for a photo opportunity. The Tropicana is basic but has a lot of character, you make your holiday your own so don't expect the Hilton, kick back and have fun. They will make your stay worth while.
