Our room was small but clean. You can walk into town from the hotel which was really good. The restaurant in the hotel did amazing pizzas. The only thing was the air con or lack of it in our room really needed it working and it was not great at all.

Its so close to the Carmem beach. Also to the city with shoppings, super market and bars. The restaurant is awesome and have an amazing pool. There is also a nice family that runs the place. I'm glad to be hosted with them. Thanks guys!

Ritmo was exactly what we wanted in a hotel here. We were situated in the middle of Mal pais and Santa Teresa. The hotel is walkable to a lot if you don't have a vehicle. The pool area is beautiful and the rooms are simple and clean. We ate dinner at the restaurant which was very tasty.

Our room was simple but nice and clean. It had a TV and refrigerator which was nice too. The restaurant was awesome - we ate there at least a few times during our 5 night stay for both breakfast and dinner. Just a short walk to the town or beach. The pool was very nice and clean as well. I...

A change of pace from the norm. This a relaxing small family owned facility with clean modern bungalows surrounding a well maintained pool just steps away from the outdoor restaurant and bar. A quick 2-3 block walk down the road and your in the village of Mal Pais. Beach is also about a 3 block walk. Nice place to base...

What a lovely property. The pool is the highlight. Staying in a bungalow that slept 3. There was a little bar fridge and it had air conditioning. It's nothing fancy but wonderful. What blew me away was the service. The staff are lovely and attentive. If you're looking to get away from the constant hum of the town it's the...

Just spent 7 day at the Ritmo and found the place to be just what most of the viewers have been saying, very lovely grounds and the pool area is very nice. The sleeping huts/rooms are nice and clean, but they do need some TCL soon, if you like staying in 5 star hotels this place is not for you,...

Absolutely loved my stay at the Ritmo Tropical. The grounds are gorgeous, the bungalows are clean and comfortable, and I had a great porch, perfect for relaxing with a cold beer after a day of surfing. Elena and Jonathan are fabulous and cheerfully answered my never ending questions, they are very knowledgeable! I became addicted to breakfasts and dinners at...

.I've been in Mal Pais 3 years ago and tried to stay in this place but it was full. It left us a great impression, but now it seems the magic is gone or they don't care to low season and in these case I think they should shutdown until next season. The staff were really reduced an unavailable lots...

“I usually stay in Bungalow #7. It has a double bed and a twin bed. I have stayed there with my brother before and I just take the smaller bed! Otherwise I have been there with my girlfriend and we use the smaller bed to throw our stuff on. I know they have a studio bungalow that can accommodate more people as well.”
