1st Night problems

Once we arrived at the hotel (The Tropical) the check in was quick and simple. Filled out a few forms, given two keys, wrist bands, and escorted to our room. So far so good, however, the following problems with the room: 1) Water on the floor near TV stand, under the bed and halfway into the room. 2) Electrical outlet behind TV was broken causing issues with the TV staying turned on. 3) Leaky mini-refrigerator which was cause for the water on the floor. 4) The bathroom sink leaked and was held together with electrical tape. 5) Shower does not drain well. Now after complaining to the front desk for all of this they sent two maids to clean the water (good), but could not change our room till the next day (bad). I had to speak with the front desk manager at 9AM to get another room. Now the bigger problem is I booked the trip more than one month before and apparently this room either had not been serviced since then or the last guest ruined this room and they did not bother to fix anything. When I spoke to the front desk manager the following morning he seemed a bit indifferent about our situation and just moved us to another room. No compensation, no freebies, just "I'm sorry" I advised him (not that he cared) that at a hotel in the U.S. this poor service would not be tolerated and they should take example. As the saying goes: "Sorry does not feed the bulldog." The new room was larger in all aspects. Bathroom, refrigerator and overall space. This was a good thing, however, getting our room serviced by the maids was an issue. We had left the door sign on the handle to advise and clean our room. By 4pm in the afternoon it still had not been cleaned. Finally, after complaining to the front desk manager, two maids came in and changed the room but left without refilling the shampoos, soaps and what not. I went back out to the front desk where they gave me the required refills. This problem persisted for two days (we stayed 4 nights) but finally resolved itself as I guess the front desk was tired of seeing my face. Another drawback was Wi-Fi costs $25.00 U.S. dollars per day. We did not bother as we had local service on cell phone. Still a bit pricey for a resort. Also do not expect casino action as the two places that have games are not very good. Slots are old and outdated and they had limited table games. Now the good things. Yes, the beaches and restaurants are excellent. The buffets were changed to different themes daily and the a la cart dining was excellent. Beaches were clean and the chairs and beach beds were comfortable. Plenty of free flowing water, beer, wine and liquor was available. They had Presidente beer and a house brand for the liquors but still very good. The evening shows were good at the outdoor theater but if it rained the shows of course were cancelled. Duty free shop onsite had plenty of everything and a good variety of brands. The onsite store which sold sundry items (OTC products, candy, milk, etc.) was also well stocked but a bit pricey. Overall I would rate this 2.5 palms out of 5. I would recommend another hotel other than The Tropical. This was my first experience there and now I know better and if we decide to go back it will be at one of the better hotel locations. One could only hope if you go to one of the better hotel/residences that the service would improve. Service upgrade is absolutely required at this resort!

Not thrilled

Second trip to the Dominican,, first at this resort.. Will never go back here. Started at check in, I had booked a room with 2 double beds,, myself, my wife and 7yr old son,, they gave us a room with a single bed, after 5 trips to the front desk and 4 1/2 hrs later they finally moved us to the right room. The front desk people were rude, and didn't want to correct the issue. The next day I wanted to discuss the issue with a manager and all they were concerned with was trying to sell me a time share there and join there lifestyles club. Very poor customer service. Next issue was checkout out, which is 1pm , that is no issue,, but it is when your flight is at 7 45, most resorts offer you a changing area and let you keep your luggage up front,, not here,, they wanted to charge me another 150.00 for the day to use the pool and a room, so we were forced to check out and sit in the lobby for 4 hrs. Rooms are small and old, showers have no doors and your bathroom gets flooded with water after every shower. Food options were not great..the fountain drinks taste bad and they serve the cheapest alcohol available..i have stayed at many all inclusive resorts and this by far was the worst...i would never ever go back here,, even if it was free!!!!!

An excellent choice!

An excellent value. I traveled with 11 other people ages 70 to 25 and everyone had ample activites to do. From sunbathing on a fabulous beach bed, water aerobics, dance lessons, the spa or just walking the Lifestyle community. We enoyed the buffet as well as other specialized restaurants. After dinner petformances were exquisite and lavish productions. Night life, dancing was an added treat. We all had a great time. The 20s group didn't want to leave.

Paradise! Stressfree lifestyle

EVERYTHING WAS AMAZING BUT.....

My stay was wonderful at this resort. I can not complain! The service, the food the people... everything was simply amazing! The only dislike I had was that the room we got was a little outdated. In our bathroom there were water drippings from the top bathroom floor. The room smelled like humidity here and there. & the cleaning wasn’t so great. A lot of dust especially around the lamps and ceiling fans. Overall, everything else was amazing. I WILL COME BACK AGAIN JUST MAKING SURE MY ROOM IS IN BETTER CONDITIONS!!!!!
