Decent hotel with comfortable accommodations. Friendly, accommodating and efficient staff. Rooms are nice and beds comfortable. Though weeks were a bit thin so can hear noises from the next door rooms and hallway.

I stayed for 2 nights. There was an awesome ocean view from the room. The room was very basic but it was spacious and clean. The bathroom definitely needs to be updated. The location is great because its on the golden mile and close to lots of shops and restaurants.

Service and Food is good. Staff especially the waiters are especially great. My family and friends visit Tropicana regularly. I recommend all my business friends to go to the Tropicana. The waiters like Mondli Hector David and Fortune are exceptionally good.

review by Bobby Padayachee


The receptionist didn't have the correct amount that I paid as a deposit on her system, she wanted to charge me more. Luckily I had my deposit slip with me. I rate it two star (okay) because it is in a dangerous area.

"Tropicana Hotel "

The hotel has a very good location with beautiful views and friendly and helpful staff. We did not use the restaurant or bistro for dinner as there were so many other places to choose from nearby.
