Great location! Lots of great restaurants including their own (Tropicana). The beach is about a 15 min walk down the main drag. Great pool. Relaxing. Would go again.

In the heart of town-great places within walking distance, lots to see. No view of the Sea of Cortez or the ocean, but within walking distance. I will return to the Tropicana again.

The hotel had a very wonderful ambience. I felt like we were in the amazon due to all the trees, birds, and friendly cats roaming around! Our first night there was a live band playing in the restaurant area. We enjoyed that a lot! The food and service was extraordinary! The location of the hotel was perfect. We didn't want to be where all the young tourists were. We got a good feel of Mexico! For some reason we never had hot water for showers and the rooms were very very echoey. We could hear people in rooms around us easily and in the hallway. But, I'd definitely stay at the Tropicana Inn again!

Authentic setting, old hotel style but up to date

Posted Jan 19, 2017
Pros: Clean, really comfy beds, nice authentically Mexico decoration, not the typical modern snotty resorts that are too purvasive in Cabo. Quietly tucked.
Cons: Nothing! Keep it just the way it is!
Location: Inside the historic district of SanJose del Cabo, you can see the old mission and plaza from the front door. But quiet, lovely and beautiful.
This is such a "hidden" gem, though it's easy to get to from anywhere you want to go. Darling little authentic hotel in historic town of San Jose del Cabo. It's got a fabulous bar and restaurant, patio dining, great food and free breakfast that makes it the BEST value around. Quiet, beatiful garden and pool area. TOTALLY reccommend it!

Pros: Really everything! The only drawback would be no view of ocean from here.
Cons: Really nothing.
This hotel is situated perfectly in San Jose and in the heart of the tourist shopping area. There are numerous restaurants within easy walking, lots of shopping, and beautiful surroundings. The town square is half a block away and they have lots of shows there along with beautiful decorations. There are many art shops close by also. Beautiful location!
