“Beautiful resort, wish we could have stayed longer”
Reviewed 23 January 2014

the rooms and surroundings were beautiful and very clean. We enjoyed staying right in town and getting to walk around and see the sights. A very nice place to enjoy while you are in San Jose. All rooms have a nice view of the courtyard.

Room Tip: no bad room

We have been traveling to Baja for over 30 years now. Our favorite standby is The Tropicana Hotel! The food is fabulous, atmosphere perfect, comfortable elegance. The owner Ray has put his mark on the place by always being the gracious host!
We always send our friends to the Tropicana Hotel as well. The prices for the rooms are a steal compared to what other places offer. Located in the middle of San Jose del Cabo it is the perfect location for fisherman and their wives! Guys go fishing 15 minutes away and the girls can walk and shop all day long!
We had flan last night for a dessert, the best, and a nice visit from Ray.....thanks again...Gail, Scott and Mike

The hotel has been updated the last several years and is now the best value in San Jose. What was a surprise was the Spa treatment my SO received at the hotel. The Spa is located in room 111. Nice appointments and atmosphere. A full body salt scrub, massage and manicure that took 2 1/2 hours for.......$65 usd.
The hotel has several king size bed suites. We stayed in #115. The staff were all very helpful. The location of the hotel makes walking around Historic San Jose easy.

I have been a resident of San Jose since April of 2013 and was lucky enough to have 13 family members come spend the holidays with me this past Christmas. We decided to hold our family's Christmas dinner at the Tropicana Inn on Christmas Eve at 7pm. We confirmed our reservations and menu with the hotel twice. Most of my family members are vegetarians. The Tropicana kindly offered us 4 different vegetarian meals to choose from as our main course. When we arrived at the Tropicana we were informed this was no longer possible. To make a long story short, after waiting close to 3 hours, all of our appetizers had been served but only 5 meals had made it to our table. We had a large number of children with us so you can imagine how hungry, tired an cranky they had become. My cousin speaks fluent Spanish and asked to see the manager. His only response to her complaint was "I don't know what to say" and "We didn't charge you for the meals you didn't receive". Well how kind of you! I expected much more from such a well established Inn. Perhaps they could have offered a free dessert or drink? There was no attempt to right anything. Personally, I will not return to the Tropicana Inn and I'm sure none of my family members will either.

We stayed for three days in this excellent hotel in the historic center. Our room was spacious and adjacent to the lush inner court with swimming pool. The staff was helpful with printing boarding passes and dealing with problems arising from a promised drive to the airport. The Sunday brunch was copious and a bargain. We liked the decor of the sumptuous dining room and bar and the outside seating was a pleasant place for people watching, though the margarita's were stingy and expensive.

A two-night stay at the Tropicana Inn recently convinced me that this is a top value hotel in San Jose. There is an included continental breakfast. The pool area is just outside most doors and very pleasant. The hotel is "kid-friendly." The restaurant, especially the outside seating, is excellent! The front desk staff, including Daniel, was most friendly and helpful. TV includes a couple of English options. The location in the old town area is great for shopping and restaurants. Good Internet prices can make this hotel very affordable.

Discourteous and unhelpful staff made for a dreadful last night on an otherwise-perfect Baja trip. Our first warning was when the surly individual running the front desk offered no explanation or apology for why the hotel had reneged on its guarantee of a ground floor room for the older members of our party. Things went down hill from there, with no assistance (or again apology) offered for the incorrect WiFi password he supplied and a task as simple as printing a boarding pass turning into a 30 minute ordeal requiring us to run a gauntlet of multiple unsmiling staffers. To top if off, the hotel was quite stingy with the Continental breakfast (with staff working assiduously to upsell us) whilst the hotel's décor appeared to have been acquired at a tsotchke shop in Nuevo Laredo. The savvy traveller should look elsewhere for lodging.
