Tropicana Aruba Resort & Casino
Ranked #21 of 24 Hotels in Palm - Eagle Beach
Reviewed 4 April 2012

Not the best hotel in Aruba but a great place for a good price......ALWAYS take the bus when traveling and pay 1.25 (US) before going on...Had a few bus drivers including one that looked like the professor from the Simpsons wearing a Fidel Castro hat who tried to charge us 6.00 for a short BUS ride....Taxis is Aruba will rob you............but it is 11.00 to go to Senor Frogs from Tropicana....go early take the bus.....The clubs are too Americanized anyway...well the Red Windmill you'll see from the casino/hotel is a decent one and some days closes at 6 am.
Take the Bus in San Nicholas and go early ...(2 buses to catch..one stop is downtown)

The hotel..good staff....decent price....I did not care for the restaurant and small casino...your better off going downtown to the Casino. The Argentina restaurant was good but go to a timeshare thing and they give you 100 off for couple to eat...will go back again,,,,,,,,,,,taxi back to the hotel???? 20 dollars and no more....Hotel was cleaned everyday and we had enough liquor in the room (buy at duty free at airport.....drinks at bars are a little high)

Aruba is ok but not a island to go to escape the US...felt alot like I was in Key West or Miami.:( But with too many senior citizens trying to sun bathe,,,and it did seem like I seen Natalie Holloway look alikes everywhere (RIP) I went?????? did not know why but seen alot of look alikes at Senor Frogs...maybe she a a lil Dutch...??

Was a little aprehensive at some of the reviews I saw, but rolled the dice and was very happy with our choice. The staff was helpful and cooperative and Raymond made sure everything was done to perfection. The $200 deposit was used to get meals where Tropicana was connected with and was of respectable quality and service. My wife also used that for a 1st rate deep tissue massage for an hour and she's a massage veteran. Beautiful Eagle Beach was a 3 minute walk away and if you wanted action La Cabana the sister hotel was nuts when you cut through and if you wanted quiet you hung at theTropicana.The place was clean and I did not see 1 bug as some reviews noted. The bottom line is this, if you want to spend $4-500 a night, spend away, at $150 a night this was a great deal and I would go there again.

Now that Tropicana has purchased the old Aruban Resort the place is really starting to look good. The casino is up and running and the rooms are being refreshed -- while waiting for a total renovation which is planned to begin by year end 2012. The staff is friendly and accommodating going out of their way to provide assistance and help with any issue. The pools are wonderful and the beach superb. Genuinely looking forward to returning next year.

Hi- Just returned from a lovely vacation in Aruba. We stayed at the Tropicana Resort - Eagle Beach and were pleasantly suprised. There were a lot of mixed reviews regarding this Resort so I thought I would share mine. The rooms are outdated but kept very clean (they look just like the pictures on their site). The kitchen had everything needed to make small meals especially since Aruba Restaurants are very pricey. The rooms are cleaned everyday and towels are restocked daily as well. The resort was very quiet quite comfortable and there are 2 beautiful pools, 2 jacuzzis and a gym everything is kept very neat. Its a very short walk to Eagle Beach which in my opinion was the best beach for relaxing. This resort was priced affordably, its a few miles from the bigger resorts and far less crowded then the larger resorts. If you are looking to relax, are on a budget and are not bothered by outdated decor (its outdated but not kept in poor condition) this is the place for you. There is no entertainment or pool activities at this resort and their casino is small. There is also a small restaurant we did not eat there. I suggest renting a car as it is a few miles from most of the action/entertainment and taxi rides can get expensive again let me say this resort is QUIET there is NO ACTION in this area and we were fine with that but if you want action/entertainment this resort is not for you. We ate at Madam Jeanettes ($$$), Sole Mar ($$$), Bugaloe ($$) all were wonderful. Especially Bugaloe they are right out on a pier, the food was awesome, VERY affordable great sunset views, fun staff and live entertainment, avoid Mojitos and Iguana Joes.

This place is great . We went directly to their website and saved money over other sites. Raymond and pablo out front are willing to help with anything they can. The waterslides and waterfall make up for the slightly dated furniture. You can even use one of the many BBQ grills around the pool . Next time I go Im stayin there again.
