Just returned from a trip to Los Cabos, Mexico and spent our first three nights at the Tropicana Inn. Had a great experience, the beds are comfortable, the air conditioning worked well, delicious breakfast, and a very nice pool to lounge by. Wifi is available in the pool area. Very nice front desk staff, servers and bar staff. The hotel... More

Lovely small hotel, located in historic section of town. The pictures on the website are exactly what the place looks like. They are not retouched professional photos for marketing -- it really was that pretty, right down to the "towel animals" hanging around the pool! Not crowded, allowing for personal service at front desk and in restaurant. I told them... More

I am a solo female traveler and I felt 100% respected, comfortable and welcome here. The room was perfect for me with a great bed (I'm picky on beds), clean well appointed bathroom, study desk, dining table with coffee maker and tasty coffee and good quality linens. It was a quick trip to the airport. I love that it is... More

Spent 5 days attending a wedding (ceremony arrangements, dinner, and party at hotel restaurant were very good). Short easy trip from airport with rental car and good parking. A couple of visits to the hub-bub of Cabo were fun, but we appreciated returning to San Jose as our base where we could stroll around the quiet, safe and clean streets... More

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

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
