I'm still lost on the "we are welcomed back" statement.
No offense of course, it just seems that some people are wanting a bit more info than ,hey ho, lets go.
The Management was very rude, disrespectful, shall I say assholes
before. I for one would like a public appology by them before I ever stepped foot on that property.
I know I'm kinda a newbie. But from what I heard about how they treaterd the old manager, and then acted towards Otto when trying to plan this years event.
I think everybody is to qucik to jump on the party bandwagon, and forget what happened before.
If they are all cool about it, and appologize,then that's one thing.
But to just say oh well and go back is kinda hypocritical in my book.

My 2 cents( which wont buy much)

Unga = A complete idiot to think Otto wouldn't come into play with this thread.
I hope to think that I have the utmost respect towards Otto more than a lot of other fellow TCers might have, and I do.
But hey, it's a free country, and I'll stay where I wanna stay.
Sorry if it pisses anyone off.

The Management at the Tropics were never rude or disrespectful to me. When they took my money they said thank you. When I was hungry, they did not refuse to serve me at their restraunt. The bar served me drinks, the rooms were cleaned in a timely manner. I do remember breaking many posted rules. Room Parties to all hours, the pool was open much later than posted. I am sure we all could make a list of all the rules that we did agree to follow in the room agreements, and then proceed to violate.

On the other hand I do remember management shutting down numerous room parties at a more recent event.
Biz is Biz. I am sorry for any ones business loses or hurt feelings, but that one is for LawyersCentral.

Over the years, buildings get sold. Management teams are replaced. If we return to the Caliente Tropics, it's not because we approve of the current management, but because we want to help support and preserve one of the few remaining Tiki hotels.

If everyone in the Tiki community boycotts the Caliente Tropics, we will hasten the day that the bulldozers destroy it, or it is "remodeled" into something else.

I don't remember ever hearing from the Caliente Tropics that we weren't wanted or welcome, I only remember that they turned down a request for NYE room discounts, that they weren't on the ball with Oasis, so Otto opted to go elsewhere, and that sadly they were very doinky to a good friend of ours, Casey Jones (but that resulted more in a general sour public taste towards the Caliente Tropics, it wasn't at all a case of the Caliente turning the public away). But I don't remember anyone getting the message from the Caliente Tropics that we weren't welcome there, so I'm with the head-scratchers... what's different about this week than what we knew last week, or last month, or last year? What inspired this thread?

That said, it's a cool, old-school tiki place, and Casey & others worked hard to save it from losing its character. It'd be a shame if all of their hard work went down the drain, just because they're no longer involved, and Casey himself has asked people to continue patronizing the Caliente Tropics for that reason.

So... get a room, already!

Hopefully tomorrow I'll have a special rate for a "Luau Weekend" in July... The manager told me that they have replaced all the bedding (mattresses, pillows, etc.) and kept the tropical decor in the rooms...There are 9 (or 15-I can't remember right now) rooms that are pet-friendly.

More to come.....
