I wanted to be close to the beach for my last day in PV but it turned out to be the worst. Compared with some others hotels not that expensive that include a GOOD free breakfast and WIFI this hotel DOESN'T HAVE INTERNET IN THE ROOMS!!and forget about free breakfast for the price. Instead, you have to be in the...

We only stayed for 2 nights but wish it could of been longer! We got a deluxe room, room 450, the view from the balcony was fantastic! The rooms are small but had everything we needed. The only drawback was a terrible order coming from the floor drain in the bathroom floor smelled like sewer. We have stayed at 5...

We've changed our usual vacation from Key West to beautiful Puerto Vallarta! We love staying at the Tropicana. It's a good value for a venue that's well located for all of our needs. The Property is beautiful and kept immaculately clean. Yes, it's an older property...but it is what it is at that price point. I REALLY wish there was...

Just returned from 8 nights in JR suite #707 and enjoyed everything about the room and the Tropicana. Full oceanview corner balcony room. A fairly basic room but everything a budget to moderate budget traveler should want. This is a very well maintained older hotel with a restaurant and bar onsite. A well stocked little market right across the street...

This place is lacking in many categories. For me it was mainly the cleanliness. The rooms were old, the buildings look older. It needs renovations. The was a Fanta stain on the stairs for two days before someone cleaned it up. The staff are OK. Some more helpful than others. The redeeming features are the beach and the pool. If...

Perfectly located with private beach. Swimming pool with bar. Walking distance to all of the old cities great restaurants. I have stayed in the new tower and the old and prefer the oversized rooms I the older building. If you can ask for a pool front room on second floor. Huge balconies.

We stayed at the Tropicana Hotel 1-3 April, and although the downtown beachfront location was great, our 'Junior Suite' let us down. The room was large, but useless space; small kitchen, lousy old wall mount a/c, ceiling fan hanging on a thread, and no couch or comfortable seating. And the worst? Two twin beds as hard as nails, instead of...

The staff at the Tropicana couldn't have been more kind, helpful, polite, accommodating and knowledgeable about restaurant recommendations. I'll be reviewing 2 of them later. The room was beautiful and we enjoyed the incredible sunset front and center each evening. The room was clean and whatever you needed it was no problem for the incredible staff to accommodate you.
