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.

Everyone in our group of 8, including two children under 6, had a great weeklong stay at Tropic Seas Resort. The rooms, grounds and pool were incredibly well maintained and the support staff were all lovely. The beds were huge and comfortable. The wifi signal was strong and fast enough to enjoy Netflix on our tablet at night. TV junkies... More

This is a very nice small resort with only 16 units. The location is great, easy walk to downtown LBTS, the beach, and shopping at Publix. The pool is beautiful and lovely landscaping. There are plenty of beach and pool toys for the kids so don't bring any. The kitchen is well stocked the furniture is a bit dated but... More

We have been coming back to the Tropic Seas for the past twenty years, every other year or so. There have been many changes on El Mar Drive (most for the better) but the Tropic Seas has essentially remained the same over the years. It has a bit of a retro feel to it that adds to its ambiance.

Whenever we travel anywhere near this area we make every effort to schedule this property. Its as pretty as the pictures, welcoming, smallish, personal, quiet, relaxed...mature really. This isn't spring break territory, this is reserved for exactly the opposite behaviors and people. Friendly community and great food, drink, and entertainment nearby.

We came upon Tropic Seas after booking another local hotel on the Internet from the U.K.What a difference!! We only had 6 nights in Florida. We spent 4 nights with Eleanor and her daughter Linda and wished we could have stayed longer. They were so friendly, the room was comfortable and clean(you should have seen the other place) It is...

Relaxing and well-appointed decor that isn't overdone. These operators have kept up and yet respected the past as well. On a beautiful stretch of beach. Very clean and nice to have a full kitchen. Excellent value.

Enjoying our return visit to Tropic Seas after a three year hiatus due to busy school schedules. The hotel has only gotten better, new furnishings and room decorations are great. The grounds are pristine, beachfront location unbeatable, and I've never stayed at a cleaner hotel. Eleanor and her staff keep this place in top shape and truly care about their... More

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
