Even thought the pet policy said no pets, when we asked, they said it was fine! Our dog liked laying by the pool, and there is a big parking lot next to the hotel that was good for her bathroom needs!

Can you stay for 7 days in Baja without staying at an all-inclusive and still have a wonderful vacation? Of course you can as long as you stay at the Tropicana Inn. I wanted to spend a week in Baja Sur to take advantage of the strong US dollar. If you stay at an all-inclusive, you're not getting a bargain.... More

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

Location: The Radius around the hotel offers a lot of dinning, shopping, and attractions. There are many places to site see such as the San Jose Estuary, City Theater and Cultural Center. They’re are many shops in the area where you can find authentic gifts and pieces. If your not looking to shop or site see there are plenty of... 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
