The Tropicana Inn in downtown San Jose del Cabo survived last years hurricane very nicely. I was afraid that all which makes this place so special would have been uprooted during the hurricane. I know they were closed for a month while all the long time employees worked to clean and paint and repair. It is a solidly built place... More

The hotel is as charming as the pictures (minus the palm palapa at the pool, which was bare when we visited) and we loved the pool. However, there are some challenges that made is less than ideal during our vacation. My overall experience is somewhat colored by our disappointment in Cabo overall - very touristy, over priced, and not much... More

We were booked in for three days before our week long 'resort' vacation and had to cancel our trip because of hurricane warning. The resort was wonderful in postponing our trip. However Tropicana told us that a hurricane isn't a valid reason to cancel plans and refused to refund us. Glad we weren't booked for more days. We've stayed here... More

The Tropicana Inn was the most enjoyable and comfortable hotel we stayed in during our entire Baja trip. Driving down from Los Angeles we had plenty to compare it to. The service was outstanding and prompt, the grounds were gorgeous, and the rooms were clean and well appointed. The wifi signal was incredibly fast and the best we've had as... More

The Tropicana Inn is a small centrally located hotel in San Jose Del Cabo. You wouldn't know that there is a hotel back behind the restaurant. It is older but well maintained. Really soft but comfortable beds. Quite with a nice pool in the court yard. They also offer a unique guest house they moved to the site. Be aware... More

A clean, quiet, reasonably priced hotel with a nice courtyard pool right in the heart of the downtown San Jose tourist area. A word to the wise: When I tried to book two weeks in advance for Easter Sunday, the two websites I checked told me that no rooms were available. When I went to the hotel's front desk a... More

The Tropicana Inn is right on the main strip of San Jose del Cabo within walking distance to lots of shops, restaurants and galleries. It's also right by the beautiful main town square where lots of events take place. The rooms are a nice size, with air-conditioning which was really appreciated with the humidity in Baja. Lots of hot water... More

My friends and I enjoyed a delicious lunch in the Tropicana's very pleasant sidewalk restaurant. The staff provided excellent service. Would like to especially thank and commend Manuel Correa, Assistant Manager and Grace, restaurant cashier. Will definitely return to Tropicana when I return to Baja.

From the moment I walked into the front entrance, I instantly fell in love. There's so much beauty and vibrant color that encompasses this place, from the dainty pool to the greenery all around. The room was the perfect size for my boyfriend and I. It comes with a/c, bathroom essentials, bottled water, and coffee. The hotel is right in... More
