Since cost is the major factor in my rating system, this review is based on paying $120 a night (cash) for the old building (second level). I felt this was excessive given the lack of fundamental conveniences. Here’s the rundown. The Good: • The location...More

Hello, Future guests can be sure this is not the case here at The Gardens, I believe these folks were here before the hotel changed hands to new owners, who care very much about guest experiences! Air conditioning is standard and included in all rooms,...More

I’ve visited Giardino Tropicale for seven straight winters, since I was 81 years old. That should give you some idea about how I feel about the place! I sit in a rocking chair on my porch overlooking the pool, listen to the howler monkeys, walk...More
