We recently returned from a trip along the west coast and peninsula of CR. We started our trip with an Airbnb and a hostel, so this hotel was a nice reward for a little bit of "roughing it". The rooms were spacious and clean, and the staff were all extremely accommodating. I was with friends but this seemed to be... More

My family had a lovely 4 night stay at Hotel Tropico Latino. The staff was very friendly and helpful. They even had a wonderful crib for our 5 months old grandchild. Beautiful beach, we look forward to a return visit.

The location can not be beat, right on the beach and close to everything. The beach is stunning. The hotel staff is very attentive and friendly, preparing good cocktails and excellent coffee. Relaxing yoga classes overlooking the ocean and spectacular sunsets ... we will definitely return soon.

The location is by far the best. It is one of the few hotels with direct access to the beach. We stayed in one of the beachfront rooms, and it was spectacular. The beach is less than 30m away and the view from the balcony is really really nice. This part of the hotel is called "The Beach House", and... More

After having a postcard stuck on my "vision board" for years and years, I finally made it a priority to travel all the way to Malpais, Costa Rica to experience a surf camp AND Costa Rica for the very first time. I felt the need for an active vacation to escape the winter blahs and get a healthy kick in... More

I've had the pleasure of staying at Tropico Latino twice. Beautiful beachfront resort with large private bungalows. Wifi access improved dramatically from my first stay last year. The staff is more like family - very helpful and friendly. The restaurant food is fresh with both local and international cuisine. The spa has a wide variety of services with talented providers....

Great location on the beach off the roughest and dustiest road I have ever driven on.Walking on the road is as difficult as driving. The hotel management needs to get a grip on the operation.....or perhaps they do not care about the clients and are happy to let them feel short changed. Our beach front villa was not as described,we... More

Tropico Latino is just what you'd imagine a Costa Rican beach hotel to be - it's all beautiful wooden cabins built right into the jungle, making each room feel like a private, exotic retreat. The staff here is very kind and helpful, the restaurant food is fresh and delicious and it's all within view of a beach that's about as... More

Great location right on the beach. Super bartenders and parking attendants! Evelyn at reception desk was very helpful. Yoga lessons right on site. Great seating on... More

Great and spacious rooms, friendly staff, amazing ocean views in a walking distance (20-30 steps) and the best food! Nice surprise in the middle of a great beach in Costa Rica. This is a hidden gem and I was extremely impressed by the restaurant and the service. Great experience overall.
