We spent a week at this charming small colonial hotel with a vibrant mexican restaurant which exceeded our expectations. We did not encounter any problems with the W-Fi as many others had noted. Elizabeth, the guest manager, was wonderful and catered to our every need. The owners were on-site and very friendly, as were all of the staff. The central... More

My wife and I wanted to try staying in quieter San Jose than raucous Cabo so we chose the Tropicana based out Trip Advisor reviews. We were not disappointed in any way. The hotel is older but it is very clean and the staff is very friendly and accommodating. The pool area is wonderful: clean and quiet. The rooms are... More

Third year we have stayed there. Nice, quiet property with excellent accommodations and food. Owner is very involved with his property and very friendly. Rooms are reasonably priced and the pool setting is awesome. Excellent base in the middle of the city from which to explore the town.

Beautiful hotel just steps from downtown. From the fountain in the courtyard to the ornate iron bird cages, this was the Mexico I remember from 30 years ago. Rooms were clean and simple, and overlooked the lovely pool and courtyard. Staff was friendly and our room was ready early - no problem. Continental breakfast was great, and included fruit, eggs,...

Love the Tropicana - it is a beautiful colonial hotel & the rooms are kept very clean- I think it's the best place to stay in the center of town. Service at the restaurants can at times be slow, but all the staff is very polite and cordial.

In fact, just tonight getting ready to book there again this year and believe me for us that is a rarity, because we love to explore different spots. But the people, place and palate were all awesome. The pool is a great size for the number of rooms, the rooms themselves always clean and kept up. Front desk arranged a... More

This is a quaint older Mexican hotel in a very good location in San Jose del Cabo, close to great shops, galleries, and the main square. The hotel has a lot of character, but I didn't notice that the service was anything extraordinary, and our first night there we had no hot water. The rooms were very clean and comfortable,... More

It was exactly right, all of it. The room was comfortable, cheerful, AC worked, nothing to complain about. But, the joy of the TROPICANA was the staff! I have never stayed anywhere that compares. Starting with the lovely young woman at the front desk, she met any request with a smile. Actually it was hard to find much of anything... More
