We stayed two nights in Rm 117. Very clean. Looks recently remodeled. Smelled good. No chemical or heavy air freshener smell. Kitchen stocked with all the basics for cooking for two. Flat screen tv. Window unit air worked great. Will definitely stay there again.

The lobby hours are not...

Never visit this place, we paid over $400 for this room, looked like a room that you would charge by the hour, plus no free...

Yes the place did raise their rent, BUT my wife and i checked all around the island and this is by far the cleanest, nicest place, AND it is still $100 cheaper then other places.

We stayed here with another couple in a two bedroom condo house. Very clean. There are some less than clean places to stay in Port A and will cost you an arm and a leg to stay in their filth, but not Tropical Resort. They were very friendly and my family and I had an excellent time.

“If you are booking for 2 people (husband&wife) the room may be small so ask for 2 beds instead of 1 for the extra space. Great prices.”
