“Nice little oasis”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2008

As we pulled into Playa Teresa we stopped for a cold refreshment. Luckily we meet a couple who were staying at the Ritmo Tropical in Mal Pais and they highly recommended it. We were really lucky! What a beautiful place. The rooms were spotless. We had a poolside room that had a queen size bed and a bunk bed. The complex is set back from the road with nice landscaping all surrounding a large refreshing pool. The dust from the road is a real problem in this area. Because of the way this is situated, you had no dust or street noise. I can't say enough about the pool. It was very hot while we were here, so we really took advantage of the pool.

Unfortunately, the rooms did not have air conditioning. But the ceiling fan were the strongest I've ever seen. Each cabin has a nice porch with chairs. We sat out in the evening, drank some wine and enjoyed the evening breezes.

This was a very nice place to stay. A real value for the money and very quiet also. The shower was nice and hot. The room also had a room safe and there was a security guard in the parking lot at night.
