The staff seemed friendly enough to us. The fact that you can get a full kitchen really does make a huge difference! The grounds were gorgeous and the swimming pool was VERY nice. We didn't use the marina, but that only adds to the plusses of this place.

The office worker was very friendly & informative. Its beside a lake that connects to St John's River. It's very pretty view, the cabins aren't right along the water, but I guess that will keep you good distance from the gators lol. You can kayak, stay in your RV here, rent cabins, along with bringing your own boat, have boat... More

The grounds at this resort are lovely and beautifully maintained. Very tranquil and quiet. The pool was delightful and had a nice covered area to seek shade. We were three couples traveling together and rented the 3 bedroom 2 bath. There were definately some maintance issues in the unit. The ceiling in the kitchen is litterally falling in. I can't...

The male staff there is rude and not friendly, but the one little woman there is. Other than that I really cant leave a lengthy review because I get upset and Trip Advisor wont post when I am angry! I guess if I have to post a "friendly" review I will just say - BUYER BEWARE!

We were not informed until we arrived that we were prohibited from fishing from the boats. NO ONE had informed us about this earlier. We are renting boats! on a River! but no one... More

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!
