The worst Aruba vacation for 15 years
Tropicana Aruba Resort & Casino should have been closed as it was a year ago due to a bankruptcy. To describe it as a run down hotel is not strong enough! This is a part of former LaCabana property which is now a separate resort if one can call it "resort".
When we arrived the room was not ready, it was still not ready by 4 o'clock - official check-in time. The receptionist was rude and inattentive to our needs. When our room was finally ready we found it in a terrible condition. The stove was broken, so was the light and the furniture. The pans in the kitchen were not usable. The air conditioning did not function properly - we couldn't sleep at night. The administration told us - the same problem is for any room.
I uploaded an image od a stove in our room.
You should not sell any packages for this rotten place. We didn't get ANY value for the money we spent.
We picked Aruba as a vacation destination for no particular reason. Neither of us had ever been to the island, nor did we know anyone who had. What an awesome surprise! The weather is perfect with a Northern breeze that keeps the bugs, temperature and humidity at bay. While the temperatures in the states soared, the high in Aruba remained in the 80's.
The staff was very helpful and friendly- it seemed most if not all spoke, at least, 3 languages; English, Spanish and Dutch. The vendors on the beach, in the shopping areas and at the flea markets were very polite and not intrusive.
The Tropicana is far from being the most impressive resort in Aruba and it is a good distance from the market, shopping areas and major hotels. Yet, what it lacks in appeal it certainly makes up for in character and value. Our room was spacious, comfortable and the kitchenette was fully stocked with everything we needed to cook breakfast and lunch everyday. There are several gas grills on the property which can be reserved by resort guests and are large enough to cook a family feast.
There is much ongoing construction in the area and we were fortunate that our room did not have a view of any of these areas. Instead, our balcony faced the pools where we sat and enjoyed the sun, breeze and wildlife. From our front door we could see the ocean and the Tropicana's sister property, La Cabana.
The public transportation was inexpensive and did not require a vast knowledge of the area. We rented a car for several days to tour the island. With the island being only 77 square miles, navigation was simple and we easily found The California Lighthouse and Baby Beach.
Was very dissapointed in the resort completely. room service was poor all they did was make bed and give clean towels. The bedroom had towels on the floor under the window and our outside sitting area was leaking from the roof. We have been there many times and enjoyed it a lot that was why we went back but it will be the last time for us. We are sorry about this but you wanted our opinion, hope it shows up on your review site.

where is the tropicana aruba1 answer
Exactly where is the tropicana aruba? I know the area well but I can't figure out where it is. It says there is a 10 minute walk to the beach. Is it between the manchebo and divi divi? If so the 10 minute walk doesn't make sense.

Tropicana Aruba Resort & Casino: Find Flexible Fun for Families
If you want to trade your cares for fine, white Caribbean sands, Tropicana
Aruba Resort & Casino is ready for you and your family. Just five minutes
from island shopping and the happening nightlife in Aruba's capital,
Oranjestad, this resort's kid-friendly flexibility lets you experience Aruba
the way you want. The resort is within walking distance of the wildly popular,
palapa-studded Eagle Beach.
Two enormous pools--one with a waterfall for grownups, the other with a
150-foot-long waterslide--mean you get to relax in the Aruban sunshine with a
margarita from the swim-up Crazy Parrot without worrying about what the kids
are doing. When you're ready to sit down for grub, the kids can grab
mac-and-cheese off the kids' menu while you try an Aruban club sandwich at
Mamuris. If you want to reward good behavior, or just cool off after a long day
in the sun, kids won't say no to a fresh-baked, glazed donut from Dunkin'
Donuts or a sprinkle-topped sundae at Baskin Robbins.
If the kids start to get restless and you've already cashed in your winnings
from the Trop Club & Casino, why not make plans for an afternoon of
snorkeling to see the amazing world under the water or perhaps challenge the
kids to a few sets at the Tennis Club located on the resort grounds.
If you need supplies, dash into the Divi Dushi convenience store for snacks and sundries or the Villa Market
for a larger selection of food. Then kick back with the snacks and drinks
you've whipped up and plan the rest of your time in paradise together!
