We ended up staying at the Tropicana. Excellent location. Not the greatest rooms, but did get ocean front, 5th floor with balcony with king size bed. Hard beds, which is actually not so bad for me. Noisy on weekend nights. Staff that would just walk in without knocking, in the middle of the afternoon, even if you had a Do...

We stayed at the Tropicana which is located right on the beach in Puerto Vallarta. The property is very nice. The pools are clean and inviting (even though I did not go in as the beach is right there) and the staff do a great job of keeping everything clean. The rooms are average but clean. The beds are hard...

Second time staying at the Tropicana, and you can't beat the location on Amapas and near all the best restaurants. The hotel is clean and they are really doing a lot of remodeling - but not the annoying kind. To be noted is the GREAT new additional pool - the pool area with waterfall now is delightful and great. The...

We stayed at the Tropicana for the last two years (in February). We really enjoyed being there, right in the heart of the old town, and right on the beach. We found the staff to be very cordial and friendly. The room had a great view of the beach. We would definitely stay there again. While in PV last February...

We stayed there during new years for 5 nights in a waterfront Jr. Suite and really enjoyed our time there. The hotel is right on the beach in the old town, not too far from the BlueChairs. The front desk service was great and we are happy with our room. Our room is spacious with a mini kitchen set up....

Had issues with room key, those issues amounted to push the key all the way in, then pull it out several millimeters while turning to the left at the same time. This was the only way to get the key to open our room door. The hotel staff made 3 different keys for us but apparently not very well, because...

Tropicana Hotel has a great location in the heart of Puerto Vallarta's Zona Romantica. We had a junior suite with a great view to the ocean. The room was clean and comfortable but nothing fancy. The small kitchenette had all the essentials except a microwave which would have been nice. The staff was friendly. The hotel is in angood shape...

My husband and I stayed at the Tropicana Hotel twice in 2011, a week over both Easter and New Years. We had an excellent time being in 'Old Town' Puerto Vallarta and highly recommend others stay in this area. However, if both an ocean view and a king bed are critical to your vacation happiness, then you may want to...
