Excellent surroundings in a quiet area only a 5 minute walk from the city. The room was perfectly clean with high standard. The pool area was so good that we ended up spending more time there than at the beach. The staff, and Jonathan in particular, was so friendly and helpful that we ended up staying more nights than initially...

We planned to be in Costa Rica for 12 days with the final 6 in a relaxing beach town. Since we tire of restaurant food quickly, we planned nearly 3 months ahead of time to find a place with a kitchen. The Ritmo Tropical seemed like the perfect fit so we booked the studio with a kitchenette in January. When...

Our room was comfortable enough for four people. we had enough storage space to store our clothing. The room also came with a microwave, a small...

We stayed at the Ritmo on the recommendation of a friend. The manager, Jonathan, was really helpful and accommodating. He followed up on every detail and helped with tours, etc. The restaurant manager, Lucilla, was also excellent - food was great and she was always gracious and kind. The bungalows are basic - clean with good A/C. Enjoyed watching the...

We enjoyed our stay. Jonathan made sure all was in place. Extended the trip an additional week at last minute and we were accommodated by Jonathan. A family run establishment that cares about your visit. No large resorts in Mal Pais and hope it stays this way. When compared to others in the area the Ritmo is up to par....

I was travelling solo and am so glad I changed my plans at the last minute to come here. Jonathan was really helpful before I'd even arrived and once I got there was a brilliant host. He introduced me to the best ceviche in town and showed me some fantastic views during my trip. The rooms were big and airy,...

I stayed on Hotel Ritmo Tropical last September 2015. One of the best swimming pools on the Santa Teresa and Playa del Carmen area. Warm but had areas shaded from the sun. The hotel was clean and comfortable. Unfortunately we were assigned a small bungalow on the first night but the staff kindly changed all of our stuff to a...

My friends & I were looking to stay in a relatively inexpensive hotel while we were visiting Mal Pais for a few days & we found Hotel Ritmo Tropical. We were driving from San Jose & left to Mal Pais in the early afternoon therefore arriving during the reception after hours (in other words, super late). The staff from the...

We stayed a few years ago in October and it was pure bliss!!! The restaurant was not open yet they were busy working on it.

“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.”
