This is a very long overdue review, but we still often talk about how amazing our time at Ritmo was. We stayed there for a week in December 2016 (unable to select an earlier date on here) and there is no doubt that when we are back in Mal Pais we are going back to see Jonathan & the rest of the staff! We were fortunate to be booked into the upper suite which overlooked the bungalows and pool in one direction, and into the lush jungle in the other. The howler monkeys could be seen in the distance, and the iguanas were basking in the sun on the roof. It was peaceful and away from the main intersection so the nighttime sounds were muted in order to enjoy the jungle. Ritmo was exceptionally clean: pool, restaurant, rooms, grounds, landscaping...everything! We couldn't have been happier with our choice! We only ate dinner in the restaurant twice, and the pizzas are delicious!! We decided to stay one extra night and Jonathan had no issues moving us down into a bungalow on ground level as the suite was booked past our initial reservation. The bungalow is like a one room suite, super quaint and comfortable, and again very clean. The main intersection to get down to the beach is only a few minutes walk away, only 5 mins to the beach (a little closer is an access to a quieter section of the beach and tide pools. If you are looking for a nice relaxing place to come back to after a day of surfing or adventures, or love to wake up to the magical jungle sounds, this is your place!

Finally decided to check out this area of the coast after hearing about the quaint town of Santa Teresa that borders on Mal Pais. After an extensive search, we chose Hotel Ritmo Tropical for it's adorable bungalows and the great price. Each room faces the pool which is a good size. I was also intrigued by the reviews of the onsite restaurant which didn't disappoint. The hotel was walking distance to the beach and many restaurants when we decided ti venture out. All in all, a perfect getaway!

This place is super clean, and has an amazing staff. The restaurant there also has some of the best food in the area. The pool is a delightful treat to beat the heat. Finally the location is prime!!
It will be the only place I stay when I'm in the area.

Me mama and 20 weeding guet stayed at this lovely of a hotel in December 2016. From the moment we arrived, we knew we had made a great choice. It’s charming, comfortable, well located and carefully maintained. After seeing a variety of other hotels we could have stayed at in the area, we all agreed that Ritmo provided the best value without compromising on quality.
We really recommend it for couples or family all ages

Room Tip: Cottage 3 near the pool

Fabulous bungalows, reasonably priced, close to everything. Jonathan was a fantastic host. If you want a good base to explore the Mal Pais area, this is a great option. The restaurant is also great with yummy Italian cuisine. We were there for a friend's wedding and took over the place. The pool is one of the best features, private and cool with the bungalows surrounding it. A very social and pleasant area to hang out. Highly recommended.
