Perfect Stay
Really great little hotel! Room was exceptionally clean, felt really safe, and the property manager was so kind and helpful! The location is very close to the beach and there are a few restaurants within walking distance. Bike rental right down the road too. Pool was always pristine. Would 100% recommend.

Our stay at Tropical Beach was enjoyable. It’s a beautiful little hotel, has the boutique feeling without the price tag. The manager(s) were accommodating and check-in/out was easy. We arrived at 10:00am and they checked us into our room without any issues, it was appreciated. The hotel is a five minute walk to the national park/beach and a short bike ride or drive to town. I’ve travelled quite a bit and this ranks at the top of the list for value, couldn’t recommend it enough.

We loved Tropical Beach. We would have rated 5/5 on all areas, however due to Covid the restaurant was closed for lunch and supper, as many places throughout. We highly recommend This property and the outstanding staff. Looking forward to our next visit, Thank you Maurisico
