This is a great hotel! The service was superb and the room was perfect. We had the most perfect view of the Bay of Banderas and it was overlooking Playa Los Muertos. I would and will stay at this hotel again in the future.

Very nice and quiet hotel (at least in the summer). The staff was great and helpful. The grounds are beautiful. Micheladas in the palapa were heavenly. Nice clean beach with service and palapas for shade. We had a suite with a kitchen, but wouldn't bother next time. There were not enough dishes, no other accessories for cooking such as dish...

We had an huge junior suite, but the space was mostly in the living area. Furnishings were old and worn and not comfortable. The beds were so hard i lifted up the sheet to see if was an actual mattress. That said, i really enjoyed the location on the beach close to fun nightlife and great shops and food. Their...

Stayed at the Tropicana for two weeks in April. While this is an older Mexican style hotel the location and service make up for the age of the facility. The rooms were spotless and kept that way daily during our stay. The staff were continually cleaning the entire facility day and night. The service was top notch. The food and...

I needed a quick getaway where I could just relax and get a bit of writing done. I had seen this hotel many times on previous trips and was curious to try it. I'm so glad I did. I booked a superior room via expedia. It was located in the new tower, facing south. The view over the pool and...

Had been to Puerto Vallarta a month ago and stayed at an all inclusive resort near the marina. Was o.k, but I realized there was more to discover in Old Town Vallarta (downtown area). So, after lots of research on Tripadvisor, I found Tropicana hotel and would stay there again without hesitation. This hotel is not all inclusive and is...

We spent a long weekend at this hotel. The location and proximity to restaurants and old town, malecon is excellent as both are a short walk away. The hotel complex is spread out and has beautiful grounds and a nice beach front. Unfortunately, the rooms are not only dated but sub-par for the hotel rating. It should be a 2.5-3*...

Its our fourth time in PV -- and each time before we thought we should try staying in the south side Old Town area. This time we did -- and picked the perfect place. We had a superior room in the newer building -- with a beautiful big balcony and spectacular view. The balcony was clearly the highlight -- we...

We just got back and I knew I had to write a review. The location is beautiful. Loved the view from just about anywhere in the hotel. It has a lot of charm. Lots of arches, marble and views of the ocean. It is not a big hotel so it was very quick to get down to the beach. Very...

First off The Tropicana is one of the cleanest places I've ever stayed. The housekeeping staff from dwan till dusk is mopping, sweeping, etc so this simple place does sparkle .It's not luxurious at all but comfortable and the staff couldn't be friendlier. You also can't beat the price and the great location. Folks here have commented on the hard...
