Very nice location, very nice grounds and everyone at the hotel was very friendly and helpful.

The food at the restaurant was good but the options and choices were very few and and portions were very small which didn't help. Through the open door I caught sight of the cook not being the "strictest" in his preparation of breakfast. Of course most of his "infringements" most likely common in many kitchens, just not observed by any of us. The beer we were served always had at least one bottle of each order with an expired date, this semi admitted by one of the servers. Must have had a lot of old beer.

Rooms were comfortable and clean. Rustic but with all the amenities. Had free WiFi but no real signal in our room, had to go to the restaurant/pool area to pick up the signal.

Even though we had the low season prices, we did find it pricey. However, being fair, it was well within the range of what other places at that beach were charging. Very very inconvenient to have to pay for your room cash or money transfer, they do have credit card machines for "other" charges, but room is paid in cash only!! Very inconvenient since it is pricey place and one does not feel that safe carrying and traveling with so much cash!! This is an absurd practice.!!

The beach is not a swimming beach at all, plenty of surfing though. Great beach to walk long distances. around 2 miles long. Great for sunning as well.

Plenty of small eating places near by with great food and normal size servings. A mini super market across the street with the basics plus beer and liquor.

Room Tip: Only one beach front room, not really worth it unless you plan to stay on the porch all day.

We stayed 2 nights and really enjoyed our time. The hotel is small and right beside the beach. Although with rocks and not perfect for swimming, it is an attractive beach and the hammocks are laid out right beside it. The restaurant is not cheap, but we were really surprised by the excellent quality. Out of 6 nights altogether in the area, this was our best dinner easily. The beach front cabins were our favourite, the one closest to the beach being a favourite with honeymooners. The hotel is also roughly in the middle of the long road stretching from south Malpais to north Sta Teresa, so well-positioned for heading out to restaurants. There is a a well-stocked supermarket right opposite, and rooms have fridges.

It is a very nice bungalows resort in front of a heavy waves beach. The staff is very cool, they will help you a lot. Bungalows are very comfortable, good restaurant, nice pool, ... The only bad thing is the bad roads to get the hotel. From the Paquera ferry, it is minimum 1-1:30 hour using a 4x4 car.

My wife & I enjoyed a memorable vacation a couple of weeks ago here. Going out on vacation for us it’s always a challenge due to work, so whenever we’re able to our expectations are very high…Tropico Latino definitely exceeded them.

The biggest take away is their restaurant, it’s been a long time since the last time we were able to enjoy of great cuisine in a beach environment…KUDOS to their chef –Randy- & his staff!!

We're already planning our next vacation (hopefully happening soon enough) and Tropica Latino is definitely the destination of choice.
