Spacious Room, Good Value for Money

We enjoyed our stay at the the Tropicana hotel, will definitely consider it next time we come to Durban. We booked the hotel because we wanted to stay next to the beach, so the location was perfect. The room was clean and spacious and the staff was friendly. I was initially worried about parking but the hotel was able to assist. It was overall a good value for money.

Value for money

This was our fourth stay and we will be back when going to Durban the next time. WHAT IS MORE IS THE PRICE YOU PAY WHEN BOOKING ON LINE and the assistance on the chat facility. On line booking has changed the frequincey of my "GET UP AND GO"
