The tropicana is in a good location, within a walking distance to everything you want to do in Puerto Vallarta. Hotel is right on the beach and you get free chairs and umbrellas. The pool area is good, and most all areas of the hotel are clean. The only downfall, and as other people have stated, is the beds are pretty hard, but lets face it, we don't go to Mexico to sleep 12 hours a day! Overall the tropicana is good value for your money. I would recommend it for the experienced or adventurous traveler.
