We stayed in room #7 and had a good experience. The rooms were clean, the beds were comfortable with nice linen, the decor was nice, and the outdoor balcony was very relaxing. Mayra and Jason are very kind and professional. Mayra heard it was my birthday and she sent me a bottle of wine with chocolates to my room. I...

Loved the staff, as they were very knowledgeable and attentive to what I needed. As I had busted my ankle while in town. Can't say enough about this gorgeous hotel. Have already planned another trip back. Thanks Jason and crew.

The location of the hotel is perfect for those who want to be close to everything in town while still being able to reach the islands easily. Barely a 10 minute stroll from the airport so if the weather permits, you don't even need to take a taxi. The rooms are clean and spacious. We did have a loose tap...

Nice place for in town. At night when the power goes out you hear the sounds of other guests snoring. Defiantly not sound proof. Clean rooms with great service if you're looking for an in town experience. If your up before 7:30 looking for coffee just make it in your room.

The ocean facing rooms are the best option and provides a spectacular view. Room was clean, spacious, comfortable and with AC. Very friendly and supporting staff. Plenty of activities to consider. Close to restaurants and other amenities.

The staff was nice and the hotel was clean. It was very damp and humid in our room despite running the air all night, you are right on the water though. It was slightly unnerving that the back patio doors did not tightly lock and seal but rather locked with a hinge lock. There was a gap between the doors...

We spent 10 days at the Tropical Suites on this, our 2nd stay at this hotel. The hotel is very well located on the waterfront, and we used the dock directly outside of our room several times for water taxi pickups to filming locations in the outer islands.
