I really enjoyed this experienced because it was a true "Florida" style experience. Extremely open and nice, it's literally a great tropical resort and made our stay worth our while, old and classic. I went with my family a while ago yet I just found this resort again, so many memories. Definitely will remember for the rest of my life... More

We had our son's wedding at Tropical Resort and Marina on October 25. This is the perfect place with all the beautiful gardens as the backdrop. The setup of the outdoor tent on shuffleboard court was great for the tables and the dance floor. Catered food provided by Bytes &Frank's Brickhouse in DeLand made the day very special. The owners...

Their staff was not only attentive but thorough and friendly. The pontoons are hand down the best in the area and close/ easy to find! We have used others before and will be going back here always! Thank you for an amazon day and wonderful family memories!

We rented a 24 foot pontoon which we found to be of excellent quality. We even had locals tell us they had never seen such a nice rental boat. The staff at the Marina were friendly and extremely helpful. I recommend them highly!

Let me first say that our overall experience at the resort was pleasurable. This is an older resort, possibly built in the 1950s, but the rooms are nice and clean with backdoor parking. The grounds are well-kept and pool area was very nice. Access to the water was easy and it was a short distance to downtown Deland. The staff... More

After purchasing a fishing trip to surprise me with on my 50th birthday, my husband then booked a room at the Tropical. He checked with a couple of others around the lake, but they had no rooms left. (It was also biker week.) He asked that they not send a confirmation until after my birthday. So after my birthday, we... More

This is not The Ritz Carlton, this is a delightful trip back in time to old Florida. Yes, your towels don't get laundered avery day (we brought a few extras) and you got to empty the trash yourself and make the bed yourself, etc. But, the resident sandhill cranes and wild turkeys more than make up for any minor inconveniences....
