I haven't written a review in a long time and this one compelled me to do so. We stayed at this place during the Rip Curl Pro and suffice to stay I will never stay here again. It is pretty gross. The bathrooms are really gross. They have a spa bath with shower over top... I didn't even want to stand up, let alone sit down in the spa bath. The bathrooms needs renovating asap. Also the beds were uncomfortable. It was clean and the lady on the front desk nice. This is an only if there is nothing else option.

    Good basic welcoming motel. No frills but surprisingly roomy. Large adjoining room with Tv & eating area. Bed comfortable! Shower over spabath. Climb 2 steps to get in. Pool sparkling. Ideal for kids. Good length for swimming. Manager incredibly helpful and kind. 4 min drive to Torquay shops. Ideal location. Recommend.

    Room tip: The pool looked inviting . Bit too cool. But lovely blue sparkling water. Motel cld do with an update but we were really happy overall.

    A comfortable motel. The room was clean and plenty of room to move around. The laundry was available to guests with a line to hang your washing on. The car parking is okay except where you are near the garden structure as it is a bit tight to get out with a vehicle in space behind. Good location. Has a pool but we did not go in too cold. Nice place to stay for a couple of days.

    Room tip: Parking a bit difficult when near the poles. Laundry available with cloths line and pegs.

    Clean, spacious and comfortable rooms. Good location, close to the beach and the casual walk-in resturants that line it. Staff were kind and honest. Left a pair of earrings in the room when I left, and they contacted me immediatly and made sure I got them back.

    The Tropicana is nothing flash, but it is quiet and comfortable if that’s what you’re after. Even though it’s on the main road, I found the room very quiet. The room itself was a bit dated, but had everything you’d expect to find and the beds were comfortable. It’s about a 15 min stroll down to the waterfront, which was a good way to stretch the legs after a long drive.
