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

We had a one night stay en route to another venue. This hotel was clean, centrally located and affordable. I would not consider staying here as my ultimate destination but it certainly met our needs. Wi Fi and pool are bonuses.

I've always been leery of going to Mexico but my long weekend vacation at the Tropicana Inn in San Jose del Cabo exceeded my expectations, and I was very, very happy with my getaway to this quaint little area of Downtown San Jose del Cabo. This town is still recovering from devastating damage from hurricane Odile that hit in September... More

This place is always good to us. In the heart of San Jose. Good food, good people, lovely garden & pool. Walking distance to everything (except beach). A must if you love history & city plug in. Don't miss the art walk every Thursday nite!
