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 bigger bungalow on the next day! Great customer service and they have a nice restaurant too. Great Pizza and pasta!
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 pizzeria were super nice to us & took us to our rooms without having to do the checkin that night! They were like "don't worry about it tonight. Just go ahead & make yourselves comfortable. You can do the checkin tomorrow morning". Like, what? That was amazing. Our room had bunk beds which was perfect because there was a few of us & it was located right in front of the hotel's beautiful & warm pool. Everything was very clean. The hotel's pizzeria was amazing…
I went for a quik trip to compete on the national surfing contest and this time I choose to spend the night at Ritmo Tropical Jonathan the manager was very friendly with us and give us a good deal for the room. The room was super clean with a very good A/C also the pool was very nice a clean too Next time i going to stay there again Thank you
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. The pool...we could have lived in it!
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. The rooms are large and clean and they have a great pool. We feel comfortable leaving our valuables behind when we go out because the rooms have a massive metal lock box that's super secure. It's very quiet at night and only it's only a quick walk to a beautiful surf beach. If you didn't bring a surfboard stop by Jobbies Long Boards, it's on the way to the beach. And while there are lots of amazing restaurants to eat at in the area, one of our favourites is the restaurant right at Ritmo Tropical. My wife and I love their breakfasts and their dinners are the best.
