We had walked into the Tropicana Inn several years ago on a visit to San Jose and decided we had to stay there on our next trip. So, we stayed here for the first day of our vacation before checking in at an all-inclusive resort. A short drive from the airport and we were able to check in early (1:30pm)... More

We ended up in Tropicana Inn after 5 days of hard work in Santa Rosalia. Here we found fantastic atmosphere and managed to recharge batteries using excellent ambient and services. There is a great pool, spa, restaurant, breakfast in front of the reception and room cleaning twice per day. We even managed to get flat tire during our excursion to... More

Loved the pool and courtyard area - they have some aviaries with birds and interesting sculptures. Restaurant/bar was good and very clean. Room was clean and beds were comfy. Good location if you want to be in the heart of shopping and restaurants. Good quick drive over to the airport (which is why we stayed there the last night of... More

The Tropicana Inn features style and decor that evoke the charm of old Mexico, yet with all the modern conveniences, such as WiFi The staff is gracious. There is a beautiful in-house restaurant & bar with great food, but you are also within walking distance of shops, cafes, and historic attractions of San Jose. Clearly there were guests there who...

The Tropicana Inn is reasonable priced, clean and in walking distance to great restaurants and Art Galleries in the lovely downtown of San Jose. I had a massage while there and was very happy with the service I received. (Thank you, Luis) This was an overnighter for us and we had a relaxing enjoyable stay. Will return.

For people that visit Cabo for the first time it’s important that this hotel is located in San Jose del Cabo, which is about 35 minutes from Los Cabos which is a much bigger city. This hotel is in the art district, amazing local restaurants, such a charming city. Los Cabos is full of 5* hotels, drinks, clubs and tourist... More

Three days at the Tropicana made me feel like I stepped back in time. What a wonderful hotel, old fashioned courtesy, comfortable beds, quiet pool, what more could you ask for. The food was very good. We were not hounded by sales people while there, no time share representatives to make our meals hurried. I recommend this hotel to anyone... More

My husband and I were looking for an inexpensive hotel for the last night of our Mexico trip. A local recommended the Tropicana Inn. The room was not anything special, but we found a clean room overlooking a nice swimming pool. The restaurant connected to the hotel was lovely and the food was excellent. A great location in the art... More

We were in San Jose Del Cabo (from San Francisco, CA) and we opted to stay in the little bungalow stand-alone suite next to the pool. It had a beautiful spiral staircase, a large upstairs room, and a comfy downstairs seating area. I have stayed in hundreds of nights in the upscale chain hotels and I'm glad we went off... More

This little boutique hotel may only be a 3 or so star, but it's a 5 for me! I have stayed there neumerous times & i'll keep going back! Great hospitality & everyone is so freindly! During the day, there are not too many people near the pool, so it's like a little oasis.
