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

We go the Tropic Seas for our annual family reunion. With the variety of spaces available, all of our family gets the accommodations they need. Its a short walk to town, is directly on the Atlantic and is really well maintained. We always love our stay!

Love the view and location! Very peaceful and relaxing place. The beach is right in front of the room. The hotel is very clean, there is always people taking care of the pool, grass, rooms, etc. Over all, its the perfect place to spend a romantic vacation with your special someone and family.

What we loved most about Tropic Seas was the view, which from every room is absolutely incredible! The rooms are well maintained, very comfortable, and the resort had all the necessary amenities of home. Beautifully landscaped grounds surround the pool and patio area, all of which are extremely well kept as well as spacious and private. Our hostesses, Eleanor and... More

Tropic Seas has a fantastic beachfront location. The beach is just steps from your room. The beach is wide and well taken care of. We watched in the morning as any trash and seaweed was picked up and the sand was smoothed by tractor. It was a 5-10 minute walk to the retail stores in Lauderdale by the Sea. Eleanor... More

We enjoyed our 2 night stay at the Tropic Seas and were not disappointed with our choice. The hotel/motel is dated but the rooms and grounds were well maintained. Our room that included the cooking facility was clean and bright, nicely decorated (as in the period the hotel dates to). We enjoyed sitting just outside out door and visiting with... More
