The Tropical is rated as a luxury hotel and lies on Ponta Negra beach on the outskirts of Manaus. I've been a guest there since 1984. It used to be the only top-class hotel in Manaus and had an impressive colonial atmosphere in tropical surroundings. On my recent visits I noticed a decline in the quality of the facilities and service. Most problematic is the shortage of dining facilities. The former elegant restaurants with a la carte dining at poolside and in the main building are now closed and the informal restaurant on the first floor is not always open, and even then often only buffet service is available. On some evenings the only option is a large buffet with entertainment in a huge hall. That might be attractive for some visitors but not for travelers who stay there for more than a day or two or for those who prefer a more peaceful dining experience. Eve the poolside bar, which used to serve a menu with sandwiches, hamburgers, etc. now only provides small finger snacks. I'm now starting to look for alternative places for my stays in Manaus...
