Our family has been coming to Tropic Seas for 18 years. First with our young children and parents. Now with those grown up kids and grandkids. It's quite simple. Eleanor, Linda, Emy and the rest of the staff have become like family to us. We actually have tons of family in Ft Laurderdale, but we chose to stay at Tropic... More

This is a nice quaint motel with good service and close to shopping. It's on the beach but a nice walk from all the bars in the center of LBTS. Rooms are clean and Ellenor is extremely helpful. Just a nice place to go and unwind.

This Resort is the ultimate getaway for a laid back relaxing vacation at the beach! The rooms are comfortable, the grounds are beautiful, and only steps from the beach. We request a room with a kitchenette, make a trip to the local supermarket, and spend the week lounging by the pool and playing in the ocean. The town of LBTS... More

I live in Miami and like to have weekend getaways with my kids to Lauderdale by the Sea and other quiet beach towns up and down the Florida coast. Lauderdale by the Sea is one of my favorites. When I booked Tropic Seas Resort I was hoping for the best but not expecting much. I was pleasantly surprised. I loved... More

Just returned home from a wonderful vacation at Tropic Seas Resort. Eleanor and Linda ensured our stay was excellent, providing a great reception and administrative service. There is always somebody on hand to help with any issues that may crop up. The hotel as usual was wonderfully clean with fresh fluffy towels daily. The extra touch providing a beach bag... More

I usually am in the habit of staying at the "typical" chain hotel/resorts but after I found this unique "pearl by the sea" I decided to break that habit. What a quaint and charming resort motel. As I was scouting out area's with motels on the ocean I stumbled across "Lauderdale by the Sea". It's a cozy little area with... More

We stayed here on the fourth night of our annual road trip. We missed it on our first pass through in our quest for a motel, but some of the others were already full, and others didn't sport very positive reviews on TripAdvisor. This forced us to backtrack in case we'd missed something. We found this motel, saw the "Vacancy"... More

A true hidden treasure. Everything is always perfect it's quiet it's beautiful. Very friendly and very comfortable . It's one of our regular annual vacations. I hope it never changes. We've taken friends and told our friends about this place and everybody is very happy with the resort.
