I love Hotel Tropico! The food is amazing, the fruit waters delicious and it has the best sunsets and surfing anywhere in the world! Great spa services as well. Paradise. Many thanks to Roberto, Marco and Maria! Howler monkeys swing over head and iguanas wonder around on the ground!

Santa Teresa is our favorite place in fabulous Costa Rica and this is our favorite hotel there. It is located right on the beach in the best part of Santa Teresa and Puntarenas. You do not need a car since many restaurants and supermarkets are nearby. The sunsets from the beach are breathtaking. Most rooms are in a separate bungalow...

Unbelivable food created by Chef Randy Siles and his team at Hotel Tropico Latino. Very nice hotel by the Beautiful Santa Teresa beach. Service provided by Esteban and his team-mates was one of the highlights of our weekend getaway. The 6 hrs journey from San Jose were totally worthed.

I visited Tropico Latino during Christmas with my husband for our honeymoon. It was so romantic and relaxing. The staff at the hotel are so accommodating and sweet - they organized a private 10 course farm to table dinner for us on the beach, where chef Randy came out and explained each dish, ingredient and inspiration to us. So special....

Spent three great nights in a beach front room (second floor). Perfect location. Nice, spacious room, but a little dated. Loved that I had a direct view of the beach and bars / restaurants in the area. Amazing waves. Great ambience. There are suites as well - these are private "casitas" for couples and honeymooners.
