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.

Older crowd Very quiet. Friendly. Heated pool. Well cared for and managed. We booked about one month before arriving, only two rooms left. We may book now for next year!! We will try for second floor to be able to view the ocean on a balcony

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and had the pleasure of meeting Ms Eleanor Parker who is the manager and was the one who I spoke with when I originally made the reservations.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

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

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
