If you're looking for a luxury hotel, this is not it, but if you often stay with friends this is great. It is clean, very friendly staff, with a nicely stocked "store" in the hotel--prices the same as the colmado (store) a block away. Sparsely furnished kitchen, but you can cook breakfast, coffee & tea, warm food. stove and refrigerator...

Milagros is very friendly very sociable and will help with any thing. But, Donald for the most part will get upset specially when you point out the flaws of the business and the rooms always have issue and you cannot tell him that he gets upset. Other than that everybody else is nice and always ready to listen and help....

I go to Santo Domingo often to visit my fiance. We decided to stay here because it was close to where he is working. My first impression was that it was clean. I didn't see the first critter. THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT TO ME BECAUSE I AM TERRIFIED OF CREEPY CRAWLIES. This was a plus. Also Donald helped in changing...

I do not recommend this place to anyone, and I'll list my reasons below. The air conditioner can only be used from 7pm to 7am and there are only ac units in the bedrooms and a fan in one bedroom out of the 2 , so you have to stay hot the whole day. The windows do not have nets,...

Nicest lady owner and property manager is nice as well; biggest problem to me was maintenence, location was under construction but they dont do a clean work with the repairs so they make the rooms look awful, it was around a convenient but not too safe location.

I read several reviews before booking at Tropical. For those that want top of the line service I would like to advise to book at 5 stars hotels whose prices are over $125 at night. The Tropical is for people like me, always running cash strapped. I prefer to spent my money circling around the island than to spent it...

This hotel looks like a scheme. It's not like the way they describe it on their website. My flight was delayed and I got there a little bit late and they didn't let me stay there because the owner left "ALTHOUGH" I did my reservation online ahead of time.

“If you plan to cook, which I would recommend take the one bedroom apartment or more if it is a group of 4 or more. Also higher rooms have less noise when the generator starts”
