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

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

It was a nice place to stay right on the beach. My family rented for the week and I joined them for the weekend. It was cozy, clean and comfortable. I would definitely recommend it to family or couples staying in the area.

Chose this place based on the great reviews and we were not disappointed. Had room 107, which as earlier stated, does have a bit of obstructed view. And we were told this upon making reservation, but it simply wasn't an issue for us. However, I was glad I'd packed mosquito repellent. They were out all around the property and area.... More

My wife and I stayed for five days around my birthday and we really enjoyed this hotel. Staff was great and the ocean views and beachfront can't be beat! We love this place. Can't wait to get back there again.

Another 2 week vacation to Tropic Seas Lauderdale By the Sea, and it gets better every time. Subtle improvements by the management keep the standard of the rooms at 5 star. The location is fantastic and the Eleanor, Linda and Emmy couldn't be more helpful. The beach is cleaned daily by the local council and the only problem you will... More
