Location was great right on the beach, good service at the reception and restaurant. I was just a little disappointed at how dated the bedrooms and bathroom was for the price I payed. It said on the website hot water from the shower, however during my 3 night stay i received none. apart from that, very nice.

This place was great, super friendly staff. We visited in late October and the rates where discounted some. A steal is how I would describe it. Great beach and amazing sunsets. Can't wait to visit again. Thank you for existing tropico....

Seeing the price I was expecting much better! The place looks nice but the room was trully not confortable, nothing to hang our stuf, bathroom too small or shower too big! Santa Teresa is supposed to be quiet but at least from my room I could barely sleep because of the non-stop noise coming from the road (and ATV are... More

This is a very nice place. There isn't much to do here besides lay on the beach or go for a swim in the ocean or the pool, but it is very beautiful and relaxing. They also have a bar and restaurant on site but it closes between traditional meal times. Lots of other good places in walking distance with... More

This is the right place if you are looking for a nice place to stay in couple and get away from the city hustle. The nature around all the rooms, restaurants, pool, etc, is awesome. Rooms are very clean and expect no tv because this is not the place for it, it is for you to get rest and get... More

We stayed in Hotel Tropico Latino and had a fantastic time. We took a 2nd level room in the beach house, unlike some other reviewers, we did our research into what that actually meant. We were checked in by Hugo who was very friendly and answered all of our questions before giving us the room key and clicker for the... More

This is a nice quaint little place. The employees are very nice and helpful. The pool is well maintained. The beachfront furniture is nice and private. The bungalows were clean, fresh, and nice. The showers were huge, you could fit 5 people in it, if you were so inclined. The air-conditioning worked great, too. The beach front is a great... More
