We stayed in the efficiency motel room. It's an older motel but had apparently been remodeled. The room was clean, the kitchen area was nice with new cabinetry. Plenty of dishes and utensils to use. The owner/manager was cool too. We were pleasantly surprised.

When we arrived - our weekly rate had gone up about 45% over what was on their website and what I was... More

Never a bad time here!!! Ken has always been fair with myself & everyone I have referred to Tropic Island RV!!! RV spots here have more room between them than any other park on the island. Also a big plus is San Juan Restaurant is directly across the street...perfect for early morning breakfast tacos!!!

What used to be a fairly good place, is now owned by a real jerk. Reserved 2 sites for 5 nights for my family and elderly parents. The owner put us in 1 site with 2 sets of utilities, obviously wouldn't fit our pop-ups in, even though I told them mine was larger than usual. He then had my folks... More

We try to please our guests and to accomadate them to the best of our ability. We tried to make this customer happy but were unable to. We gave this customer 2 sites for the price of one because their pop up camper was longer than usual. We were also in the process of refunding this customer's credit card but... More

I'm sorry that your experience here wasn't a good one. We try hard to please all of our customers. We as well as well as most places here in South Texas have had a shortage of rain therefore grass is in short supply as well. We are working hard at re-sodding the area and hoping for rain!
