Hotel Trópico Latino is located in a beautiful spot, lots of beautiful vegetation and right on the beach. The staff are incredibly helpful and nice. The atmosphere is warm and welcoming. The food is delicious. When we were there, there was a terrific pop-up bar, the Mulberry project and we loved bartender Frederica. We had a two bedroom beachfront unit. It has a very deep, large comfortable covered porch with a large sofa, table and chairs. The room was a bit dark, and the bathroom sorely needs a remodel. Otherwise it was terrific. Well-functioning, quiet AC. The two yoga studios on site are gorgeous — facing the ocean — and the yoga I took was wonderful. I highly recommend this resort.

What a great spot. We saw some shaky reviews but we were so happy. Our room was fantastic, great sunset scene, gorgeous setting and the best yoga studio. I would highly recommend this hotel right on the beach.

I was disappointed with the service received. The hotel is over priced for what it is.
