We were so happy we chose The Tropical over the Cofresi (in the same complex) as our was easy walking distance to most of all the amenities, pools, beach, restaurants, etc.and basically on a flat surface... (if you're over 50 and not an athletic sports person, Cofresi could have been a disaster as everything is far, steps up and down...

Enjoyed the week there. Tennis lessons from Lilo were great! Only wish I was there a little longer to take some more lessons... Food was some of the best experienced in an all inclusive... Never did the buffets for dinner, and the sit down dining options were all great quality plated food.

What a wonderful resort. Fun filled, entertainment team was out going and super nice. The rooms were not good at all, but everything else was nice. Food was good, but lack of communication amongst the staff. They really need to clean the rooms and purchase new furniture, but overall it was a nice stay. Big shout out to the entertainment...

The room was very outdated and old- furniture was old and chipped. The bed was horrible and the bathroom accommodattions were deplorable! The drain in the shower was clogged and water built up and ran outside of the shower onto the floor! The mirror on the wall was molded and disgusting! The flours and toilets were also disgusting! We will...

The only thing positive I can say is that after three days on being treating terribly, being put in 2 extremely dilapidated rooms, one with a severely broken toilet, and the other that retained all the moisture possibly, Dihana Amonte was the only reason we stay the entire time we booked. The food was not as good as it was...

Hotel staff was very nice and bilingual. The bar drinks were good and tasteful. Plenty of flies & ants in the buffet area could be better but the food was amazing.

“Got lucky as we were given a room in the building of #4000's, which is pretty close to everything, top floor. Room was OK (1990's), CRT TV, aged fridge but functional, close to the noisy A/C central (but couldn't hear a thing inside) = Overall Very good, spacious and bed very comfortable....”
