My online booking was not captured by the Tropicana system and this could have caused problems for me if the hotel was full. Breakfast was the same stuff for my duration of stay. Rates were not favourable even though booking was done by Hotel Express. Hotel advised me to better make a phone call than online booking

Bad service
I did not enjoy my stay because there was no hot water for 2 days and I came for a visit with kids. I called the reception so many times and could not help me, they just said somebody is looking into the problem. I tried to use the Internet at the business lounge, the person who was helping out did not know the password for the computer. I did not enjoy my stay at this hotel.

Maintenance needs attention
Had to move rooms after first night as air-con was faulty. After much performing they moved us to a better room with a working air-con. The breakfast was good except only 1 coffee pot for the whole dining room.

Worst Holiday ever
This is my forth visit to Tropicana Hotel and for the first time everything went wrong. The room was stuffy, smelled so badly that we had to be moved. The third room we were taken too was ok to sleep in. The shower did not work, the water was cold, the lift was not working well. My family had to walk up and down 7 flights of stairs. Very disappointing, I have sent an e-mail to the Hotel and still have had no feedback. We left the next morning, supposed to stay for 3 nights. No refund has yet been made.

TROPICANA ? YES OR NO.
Highly enjoyable - Neat enough but carpets could be cleaner. Tropicana should be looking at relieving its clients of the inconvenience of parking at the building next door.
