We booked way ahead to stay at this hotel. I did my usual research, reviews looked pretty good - and made sure that we booked a beachfront cabin unit. The hotel advertises two of them- # 7 and # 8. From their site plan I could tell that #8 was the only one that was truly beachfront, so confirmed with... More

I didn't actually stay here, but I feel I am allowed to write a review because I spent more time there than my hotel. I had a bad experience with my hotel, so I fell in live with Tropico. I walked in from the beach at it was so peaceful and beautiful. I immediately booked the Valentines Package special for... More

As I sit on the bed that smells like pee, we have had no room service for three days I wonder why we stayed here. Asked for a hammock three days ago, never got it. The shower is gross and goes from freezing to scolding hot, nearly burning my wife. Turned fan on and paint chips rained on us while... More

We did not stay at the Hotel Tropico Latino but booked spa treatments there after the owner of our hotel recommended their spa. I am extremely picky about spa treatments--and I was not disappointed. Maria and another therapist provided the Four hands bliss treatment--it was so amazing! The coconut scrub made my skin incredibly soft and the massage, facial and... More

We spent the tropical portion of our honeymoon at Tropico Latino and had a great time. Luz is fantastic, she helped us out left and right. We arrived unannounced a day early, and they were able to accommodate us in a nice room, then the next day we moved to our beachfront cabina - which was perfect! We arrived the... More

We stayed at Tropico Latino from December 24th to December 28th/ 2011. Our kids are 15 & 13. The location is great with regards to proximity to banks/ grocery/ other restaurants/ etc. All within walking distance. The hotel itself is sweet, lovely/ lush grounds/ meandering pathways through the greenery...very pretty and private. Take note though...to walk on the gravel paths... More

My friend and i were looking to have a nice dinner in Santa Teresa for New Years Eve. Hotel Tropico Latino has a lovely restaurant called Shambala and the special menu was incredible. After sharing the gyozo and brussel sprout appetizers we both had the fish ratatouille which was amazing! After some chocolate cake with passion fruit ice cream the... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for six days in December. It was our favorite stop on our trip (in fact, we wished we had stayed there the whole time!) It was perfectly located on the beach in Mal Pais, a quick walk to many (amazing) restaurants and grocery stores etc. The food and staff at the restaurant was great,... More
