Great Beach Front Hotel. Location of the premisses are the best in Mal Pais. Nice restaurant a little expensive but worth the views to the surf break. Confortable lay out, a little outdated cabinas without kitchenette that will help for budget travelers or big families. The service is excellent and the front desk employees are really helpful (Evelyn). Will highly...

We stayed at Hotel Tropico Latino for 4 days in the beginning of December. The second you drive up to the hotel grounds you can tell you are in a tropical paradise. You do have to walk on a gravel path from the parking lot to the reception but when you are in lush gardens you'll hardly mind. We stayed...

This was our second vacation to this hotel. We visited the week in between Christmas and new year. First of all you are ON the beach. Not 'steps" or close to beach ..you are ON the beach, a huge plus for us. We love it because you get first class service but can turn up in shorts and flip flops....
