We are owners at the resort and love the location. We are in a quiet area and this is always a relaxing vacation. We go to town when we want to be around the crowd. There are activities during the week for all the guest. Love sitting on the patio of the 3rd floor with views of the ocean.

I heard good things and bad things about this resort. I heard about the dishwasher falling out, well why didn't you tell someone, we did and it was fixed in a second. This place was awesome. Would go back in an instant. We loved the location, the people that ran the place, yes it was a little older but sometimes... More

We stayed here for two weeks and had a good time. The pool is GREAT but nothing goes on. The resort is in a good location with the beach just across the road. There is everything you need in the apartment and there are restaurants close by and a Publix for food and drink. Everybody very friendly.

This place is dated yet there seems to be some very very slight updates but the dishwasher installer forgot to anchor the dishwasher in place and it nearly fell out onto me. Yes, this is a smoking facility ewwwww...as soon as we walked in and got a whif of that stale smoke odor, we immediately called the front desk to... More

Tropical Sands was a very positive experience and a lovely place to stay. The rooms were dated but very clean, very spacious, and the beds were comfortable. The pool and hot tub were terrific and there was a plethora of good seating. There were four gas grills located around the pool and we were always able to use them when... More

After reading the other reviews of this property we were very concerned about our upcoming vacation. However we were more than pleasantly surprised! The rooms were clean with new furniture and all new plates and kitchen appliances. All units face the pool in the middle so it is easy to watch children swim. The pool is large, clean, and beautiful.... More

This was the biggest disappointment ever! Rooms are terribly smokey, to the point that I almost vomited! 3 cans of Lysol, 4 Glade Plug-ins, 2 large bottles of Frebreeze could not cut the 60 years of stale smoke! Really gross!!! They didn't even TRY to air it out or make us more comfortable! Access to the beach is a long... More

A nice quiet resort at the south end of the island. Not filled with college students it leans more towards families and older people. No direct access to a beach, you have to walk around the small lagoon which isn't so bad. The pool is very nice and warm which was very appealing on the cooler days. Walking distance to... More

Recently widowed and on my first week away alone, I sought a pleasant, relaxing beach-front resort. Upon arrival, I wondered if the resort photos might not be at least 10 years old, if not more. It is an older resort, but very clean, and needs repair. it was a Saturday afternoon, and the girls at the desk were leaving, so... More
