For the price this place is very nice.. This is not an inclusive experience (which is fine)... Beautiful grounds, wonderful restaurant, local pets, helpful and courteous staff... Negatives... Lacks privacy (major window is on major pass through), and integrated services such as spa/massage and the restaurant seem resistant (or cannot) bill your room. So, just be aware... Otherwise very charming... More

We didn't stay at the hotel, although it is beautiful, very classic, reminiscent of the good old days. The mexican dishes were delicious, but we went for the Rib Eye! Five Stars! And as a music lovers, my wife and I, we enjoyed very much the jazz Trio, a pianist from New York, Marcia I think was her name, amazing... More

Unbeknown to me, I booked a week during a week long music celebration and rodeo. The room here was comfortable and clean. The cleaning woman had our room smelling like cinnamon. Yummy! The mariachi band in the restaurant was lovely and I had them serenade my husband with Noche de Ronda. The food and beverages there are five star.

We had a ground floor room close to the ice machine which meant that the spring breakers were on the move for ice quite a bit of the night and they don't speak in a soft voice. We've stayed there before and we will come back -- we just picked the wrong weekend to be there. The food in the... More

Location, location, location - and there is something to be said for this mantra. The Tropicana Hotel is located on the main drag in old town San Jose del Cabo - right in the midst of all the shopping, galleries and restaurants - right where you want to be. It is a jewel of a hotel, reasonably priced that offers... More

My wife and I stayed here on the first night of our Baja trip. I must say that I am not a fan of the industrial holiday hell that the area around Cabo and San Jose de Cabo has become. if you are looking to escape it the Tropicana Inn is a great choice. It is small with a great... More

I stayed at the Tropicana some years back and was very pleased then. So, I wanted to see how time (and last fall's hurricane) had treated it. I'm happy to report that the staff is as friendly and helpful as ever, as well as bi-lingual, and the property in good shape. It IS showing its age a little, some scuffs... More

Driving in from the back it looked a little unprepossessing but this hotel is a little jewel. The restaurant at the front opens onto the main street and the decor is traditionally mexican. The rooms look out onto a pretty little garden and pool and are comfortable if a little old fashioned as well. We only stayed one night but... More

This inn is in a perfect location right in the middle of San Jose del Cabo - doesn't look much from the outside but once you walk down past the restaurant and into the beautiful courtyard area it is wonderful. We stayed in the little house they have in the grounds - very comfortable rooms although downstairs was a little... More

This is such a quaint, special find in the heart of San Jose! Love the Old World Mexico feel, and the restaurant is awesome. Can walk to anywhere in downtown San Jose, and feel very safe! The rooms are a little small for a family, but we are willing to overlook that for the safety and location. We love the... More
