We planned to be in Costa Rica for 12 days with the final 6 in a relaxing beach town. Since we tire of restaurant food quickly, we planned nearly 3 months ahead of time to find a place with a kitchen. The Ritmo Tropical seemed like the perfect fit so we booked the studio with a kitchenette in January. When... More

The service that I experinced in this Hotel was that of a 5 star hotel but in a humble setting. Our room was kept in immaculate shape. the service was personal but not intrusive. Our room was comfortable enough for four people. we had enough storage space to store our clothing. The room also came with a microwave, a small... More

We stayed at the Ritmo on the recommendation of a friend. The manager, Jonathan, was really helpful and accommodating. He followed up on every detail and helped with tours, etc. The restaurant manager, Lucilla, was also excellent - food was great and she was always gracious and kind. The bungalows are basic - clean with good A/C. Enjoyed watching the... More

We enjoyed our stay. Jonathan made sure all was in place. Extended the trip an additional week at last minute and we were accommodated by Jonathan. A family run establishment that cares about your visit. No large resorts in Mal Pais and hope it stays this way. When compared to others in the area the Ritmo is up to par.... More

I was travelling solo and am so glad I changed my plans at the last minute to come here. Jonathan was really helpful before I'd even arrived and once I got there was a brilliant host. He introduced me to the best ceviche in town and showed me some fantastic views during my trip. The rooms were big and airy,... More

I stayed on Hotel Ritmo Tropical last September 2015. One of the best swimming pools on the Santa Teresa and Playa del Carmen area. Warm but had areas shaded from the sun. The hotel was clean and comfortable. Unfortunately we were assigned a small bungalow on the first night but the staff kindly changed all of our stuff to a... More

My friends & I were looking to stay in a relatively inexpensive hotel while we were visiting Mal Pais for a few days & we found Hotel Ritmo Tropical. We were driving from San Jose & left to Mal Pais in the early afternoon therefore arriving during the reception after hours (in other words, super late). The staff from the... More

We stayed a few years ago in October and it was pure bliss!!! The restaurant was not open yet they were busy working on it. I loved that our whole crew of friends had the run of the hotel as it was rainy season. Jonathan was so informative on places to go etc! The beach is just across the street.... More

Ritmo Tropical is our favourite place to stay in Mal Pais / Santa Teresa. It's a local family run business and Jonathan the Manager is very nice, super helpful and he speaks great english.
