This is a great place to stay, nice quiet pool. We have stayed here many times. The Tropicana is in the heart of town so close to the great shopping and restaurants. Try to take in the Thursday nigh Art Walk, its great fun

Just spent 10 days at the Tropicana Inn in San Jose del Cabo. We have stayed here several times over the years but have not been back in 7 years. Everything was the same as I remembered. Staff are still friendly (mostly the same staff as well) Front desk girl was awesome. They have really cleaned up well since the...

Our large group was well taken care of. I had the most fun here because we happened to be here the night they have an art walk (second Thursday?), and then, the hotel restaurant had a one hour flamenco performance, which was dang good. However prices were higher than La Paz and I don't think I'd find much else to...

I stayed post-Odile and Vance. Yes, there was some damage: trees mangled and tiles missing and I'm sure some flooding that was immediately dealt with. BUT the management, the rooms and the service are still top-notch! They have broken records to get back to their previous form and it's evident. You can never go wrong staying here. It's a well-kept...

This is one of the most charming hotels in the Los Cabos area, in my opinion. The pool area is beautiful, with statues and a lovely patio replete with singing birds in cages. The rooms are very clean and the beds are high quality (I am not a fan of the hard-slab mattresses known as Mexican beds). I had what...

One of the only hotels in the area available post-Odile. The pool was operational despite much rebuilding nearby. Very nice place to stay. Comfortable accommodations, full bar and restaurant, great service. Helps to know a little Spanish.

We were evacuated from our fishing lodge up at East Cape to this charming hotel on the main street of old San Jose del Cabo. We arrived just a few hours before Hurricane Odile decided to spoil everything! This family owned hotel is not large, but gives one a warm and welcome feeling. There is a lovely pool and courtyard...

My fishing pals & I came to the Tropicana from a fishing only hotel up on the East Cape to ride hurricane Odile. The hotel stood the hurricane forces well with mainly water damage to the ground floor. We were trapped in SJDC since all communication, power and water were not available. Armida Castro and her staff went way beyond...

My 13 year old daughter and I stayed three nights at the Tropicana, and found it to be more than adequate for the price. We appreciated the traditional Mexican architecture. We enjoyed the pool, and were thrilled to find the hotel to be located near shopping! The food at the on-site restaurant was actually VERY good. While I didn't notice...
