Reviewed yesterday NEW

Santa Teresa is a hip, casual surf/beach town and the Tropico Latino manages to keep that vibe with a relatively pricey place that is beautiful and laid-back but has all the qualities of a good hotel, like a mellow restaurant where you can eat great food and watch the waves roll in, superior service personnel who are friendly and helpful...

Our two night stay at Tropico Latino was unforgettable; we did not want to leave! We arrived just in time to observe a group of skydivers arriving to the hotel for a birthday celebration and later enjoyed a great walk on the breathtaking beach at sunset. The hotel is very relaxing and the yoga is fantastic. The rooms are big...

Beautiful, well landscaped hotel with our room almost on the beach. Very friendly staff always eager to help, without being obtrusive. Unfortunately we had to move to a different room for the last two days. This was an older room - it was fine , but the shower area needs to be modernized a bit. The rooms were nice and...

This property has an ideal setting right on the beach. The pool is lovely and has a view of the ocean. Our room was minimalistic, but comfortable. The bed was comfy and the bathroom was spacious. We had a direct view of the beach and ocean. The best part of the hotel is the staff, who are friendly and helpful...

Stayed here on the recommendation of a friend and had a great time. The manager, Kevin, was incredibly helpful in recommending restaurants, day trips and setting up surf lessons. Our room was clean and spacious. Location was ideal and walking distance from all restaurants and right on the beach.
