This is my second stay at Tropico Latino in the last two years. This year because of the fantastic location and services I stayed the entire week on this property. Property has direct access to the beach, a pool and a hot tub as well as lots of hammocks for relaxing around the property. Surfing is fantastic!!! Lots of options...

I have stayed at the Tropico Latino twice in the last two years, both stays terrific. The hotel property has direct ocean front access. There are not many other properties in the Santa Teresa / Mal Pais area that offer direct ocean front. Most of the other available accommodations are set back, located across the main road or higher up...

The grounds are beautiful with hammocks and wooden lounge chairs near the beach and by our room. Our standard ocean view room had a huge porch with a view of the ocean, although only from the porch. The room itself was very large with a huge shower and beautiful painted sink but desperately needs brighter lights, especially by the mirror...

We came to Tropico Latino for our one year anniversary. The Hotel is in an excellent location near a beautiful beach and walking distance from the crossroads. The rooms we spacious and clean and the grounds are well kept. My wife enjoyed the yoga classes and we took surfing lessons with Ale who did an awesome job.

The worst is that this Hotel was #3 choice suggested by a TRAVEL AGENCY CONSIDERED TOP 3 in my country. For the future, the Travel Agency criteria won´t be enough, but the references of friends and probably tripadvisor also... On the other hand, the hotel itself makes a mistake when generate expectations that are impossible to reach.

The Santa Teresa beach is beautiful. The pool and spa area small but nice. The service was terrible in all areas (reservations, reception, bar/ restaurant and pool area). Example: there are 6 sun beds for the whole resort at the beach (approx. 25 rooms with 2-5 pax each). "Do you have any more sun beds?" (And no, we asked kindly...
