I have stayed at Tropic Island on several occasions. I love that it's on the quieter side of the island away from most of the traffic. There's a Mexican restaurant right down the road which is convenient for a quick bite before you hit the beach. The rooms are always clean and the staff is very friendly. The prices are... More

I learned how to swim at the Tropic Island 46 years ago when I was 3 years old. I have gone back almost every year and I have never had an issue with the owners or the hotels. Obviously the building has been around a while, but the layout of the property is very kid friendly and easy to get... More

The owners are very Rude. Call me crazy, but I stayed there again. The rooms smell, and are old and out dated. I had to purchase my own linen. There are nicer places there. Stay at you own risk. I warned you.

It is unfortunate to read your review. I have worked here for one year and we rarely get complaints. We take pride in our rooms along with our entire resort. We offer the cleanest rooms in Port Aransas, while they might not be the most luxurious they are the cleanest. The owner is busy running a business, and I'm sorry... More

My husband and I stayed at the Tropic Island Resort in an efficiency suite for 2 nights. We were here during the height of summer tourist season when the Tropic Island Resort was much less expensive than the nearby chain motels. All considered, it's a solid place to stay. I can only speak for our little room, but it was... More

RV sites are a little tight to maneuver a 40' motorhome. Recommend you have a surge protector as my motorhome was damaged due to a voltage spike. Not the fault of the RV park, But did end up renting a hotel room for the night which was clean and pleasant. Pool(s) and hot tub(s) area are first class. RV park/hotel... More

We stayed two nights in Rm 117. Very clean. Looks recently remodeled. Smelled good. No chemical or heavy air freshener smell. Kitchen stocked with all the basics for cooking for two. Flat screen tv. Window unit air worked great. Will definitely stay there again.
