The Hotel Tropico Playa enjoys a prime location, just 50 metres across the road from the beautiful beach. Near the hotel you will find the commercial area with many shops, cafes and restaurants. Have a splash in the Tropico Playa swimming-pool or a drink in our poolside bar with sun-terrace and sun-beds and lounge with satellite TV and internet facilities. There are Pool-tables, table-tennis and a full day and evening entertainment programme for you to enjoy. All rooms at the hotel Tropico Playa are either air conditioned or centrally heated according to the season, and come equipped with a fully fitted en suite bathroom with shower, along with a direct dial telephone, safety deposit box available for rental and either a balcony or terrace, most of which have either full or partial sea views. In addition to the above features, all guest rooms at the hotel are also provided with a maid service undertaking a change of towels as required and change of bed linen once a week.

We were unsure as to whether or not we should go half board as my son, who is 3 is a very fussy eater, and we may struggle to get him to eat at the hotel. But we thought the food was good and he actually ate better on holiday than at home.

The staff were very friendly and helpful and kept making Joshua laugh.
The location of the hotel, which for a change was as close to the beach as it said, couldn't have been any better.

Our one and only criticism would have been the swimming pool being very small, but we never went there anyway as the beach was just as handy.

We all can't wait to get back there next year and Joshua is hoping his holiday romance will be there again!!

Myself, husband, mother and 4 daughter are only home from Hotel Tropico on 12th august 2008 and we had a great holiday. The hotel was lovely all the staff were very friendly. The day time activities very good my 3 daughter loved the fun and games around the pool area geraldine was the lady that took the girls for the pool activities each day and she was so pleasant and friendly to get on with.

The two weeks we were away there was something different on each night we all had a great time. The hotel is in a great location right beside loads of shops bars and restaurant and the beach is right across the road with crazy golf next door to the hotel. I will be back next year as we all really enjoyed are holiday in the hotel tropico

It was my first tima the Tropico and I would definately stay there again. The hotel itself had excellent facilities, especially the evening entertainment which ranged from singers to magicians and there is something on every night except Saturdays. The food was very good with a good choice. Pool area is nice if a bit small.

The hotel location is great with the beach just across the road and you can,t go wrong for shops! Also, Magaluf is only 10 minutus away and is worth a visit. If you,re a clubber you can try BCM Magaluf,s biggest and most popular nightclub. Palma is only a half hour bus ride away, as is Santa Ponsa which is worth visiting, although it is quite hilly.

If you want a great hotel in a great location then the Tropico Playa is the hotel for you.

This hotel is in a prime location, being only 50 yards or so from the beach, It is in the centre of Palma Nova, which we found in October to be very pleasant weather wise and not so crowded as in the summer months.
The people that were there ranged from the elderly ( bless em ) to younger couples and families with young children. The hotel food was ok and there was plenty of variety but I used to wait until the chef had put out some fresh chips as sometimes they were only just warm if they had been stood there a while.
The pool did not have many sunbeds but that didn't bother us as we were so near to the beach. The staff in the dining room were very friendly unlike the ones on the reception which we found to be a little hostile at times. Our room was in a block which overlooked a small crazy golf park but we did have a sea view. The beds were comfortabe and the maids came in 6 days of the week to change towels etc and clean the room. The hotel was very quiet when it came to bed time so you can be sure of a good nights sleep. Take a bus to Palma City, it is 5 euros for 2 adults and is a beautiful place especially the cathedral, there is also the marina which is home to hundreds of large expensive yachts.

Look out for the timeshare punters in Palma Nova and Magaluf, they will offer you a scratchcard, just tell them ' no thanks ' and keep walking, just ignore them. There are plenty of shops but they all sell the same things so once you have been in one you have been in them all. There are some nice bars to enjoy a drink in and just while away the hours. Allin all I would probably go back to this hotel as the location is perfect. Bolton Lancashire.

If i may i would like to inform you that this is the 10th year running that our family has visited the resort of palma Nova so as you can imagine we are rather fond of the place, however after this years stay in the Tropico Playa i doubt very much that we will return next year.
Our holiday began on Tuesday 18th of July on arrival at the hotel we where allocated room no 36 this room is located at the rear of the hotel and involves walking up approx 70 steps in a poorly lit area (any one with heart or breathing problems forget it!!)upon entering the room i noticed that the lock was broken on the sliding door also that the shower was not working and that there was a broken tile on the bathroom floor, rather than go down straight away i reported this when we went down for our evening meal( these jobs where completed on Friday 21st of July.)
The canteen is at best bland, as a vegatarian there is little or no choice in fact we only ate in the hotel on 2 occasions, that added to the fact there is limited room in the canteen and people had to wait for seats made it far easier to eat out. The pool area is extremly small and to get a sun lounger make sure you're up before 6.00am
Unfortunatly we also had to deal with cockroaches in our room when we reported this we where informed that it was the heat I have to say this is the first time in all my years staying in Palma nova that we have seen cockroaches i asked that the room be cleaned when we got back to our room there was a spray canister placed inside the bathroom! I found the hotel managers attitude totally unacceptable she was not bothered in the slightest and despite seeing me on several occasions not once did she ask if i was Ok after all the problems we had had (she was English)I can honestly say that we where glad to be coming home this year. The one good point about the hotel is it's location it is situated less than 50 yards from Palma's beach. (Liverpool)

Hotel in excellent position across road from clean beach. Rooms basic, but clean and beds comfortable. Staff and holiday rep Tracey friendly and helpful.

Food good and aimed largely at British tates - cooked breakfasts, evening meals included fried steak, cottage pie, chicken in sherry, fresh veg, chips etc. Always able to find several dishes from the menu to cater for both adults and children's tastes. Considering that the hotel cater en masse for a large number of guests, I felt (as an ex hotel management graduate) that the hotel coped very well indeed. However, although there are token vegetarian options at each meal, there is not such a wide choice for non-meat eaters. For those who don't like the food, there is a MacDonalds across the road and a variety of well-priced restaurants.

Car hire good value through hotel, starting from approx £45 for an air-conditioned Ford Ka for three days. Well worth doing to see around the island. Highly recommend visits to Soller, Alcudia, Cape Formentor and Castillo de Bollver near Palma.

Had an excellent holiday, and would definitely consider going back again next year.
