I stayed at the Tropic seas with my girlfriend last week for business/pleasure and had the pleasure of meeting Ms Eleanor Parker who is the manager and was the one who I spoke with when I originally made the reservations. She is fantastic and really made sure that our stay was great. The location is perfect, a short walk to... More

We just returned from a wonderful beachfront vacation at Tropic Seas Resort. We enjoyed our spacious oceanfront one bedroom apartment for our week long stay. Tropic Seas is conveniently located within walking distance to grocery stores, shops, restaurants and just about everything you will need on vacation. The wireless internet was free and fast. The staff was courteous and friendly.... More

I stayed at Tropic Seas from Dec 20-Dec 31 and it was amazing! We had 2 rooms, on the second level which is fantastic for viewing of the ocean. The view from our rooms were incredible (204 & 205) and the rooms were very spacious and accommodating. The price for the rooms are also great as well.The Staff is truly... More

Tropic Seas is like a private getaway. It's right on the beach, and is quiet and clean. They provide beach bags and towels and have plenty of chaise lounges all over the grounds. The courtyard is meticulously manicured and there are palm trees and a pool in the center. The pool was heated so we could swim even when we... More

Stayed at this motel in September 2014. The location is perfect but the motel has seen better days. Could probably use a bit of a renovation in the rooms(kitchen is old). We stayed in the room closest to the beach. This is the best location on the property. The kitchen was small but useful for breakfast and lunch. The bedroom... More

We spent hours researching for a quiet, restful spot north of Ft. Lauderdale. What we saw on the internet is what we actually experienced here the fall of '14. We had a delightful secluded stay. There was a minor glitch in the scheduling, but it was ironed out with no problem by Wanda - thanks! The bathroom was a little... More

Stayed here for a 3 day weekend in early September with my husband and his friend. My husband and I stayed in a king room on the 2nd floor. Room was clean and comfortable, simple decor, not very big. It did not look as though it had been recently updated, as the paint was peeling off of the surface of... More

Right on the beach, full kitchen. Extremely clean rooms & very spacious. Family friendly, right on the beach. The bed and pillows are very comfy. Nice gardens and very attentive staff. Wi-fi is accessible only by the hotspot by the office, but I didnt go there to be on the grid anyway. :) Parking is limited to 1 car per... More

My family returned to Tropic Seas after a horrid Michigan winter and found the Paradise we were looking for. Beautiful warm sun greeted us every morning as we stepped out onto the silky sand for our morning walk. Talk about having it all! Tropic Seas is a lovely boutique hotel situated on at least 150 feet of amazing beach front.... More

On the ocean if you want the beach or for pool lovers it has a heated pool. I have been staying at Tropic Seas for the past 15 years and never had the slightest problem. Eleanor and Linda have been managing this resort and make you feel welcome and like family. Give it a try and I'll guarantee you'll fall... More
