We stayed in the RV park for a whole summer. The pool is TINY and you have to share it with the motel guests.......that means it is packed all summer long. The property is maintained and they are vigilant about cutting the grass every Friday. Lots of mosquitoes despite their efforts from the empty field next door. The mgmt staff... More

During the summer, all of Port Aransas is busy with vacationers. Our park is spread over 8 acres with 150 RV sites and near 40 motel rooms. We do strive to keep the property well maintained at all times. This may mean cutting the grass once a week if necessary. Unfortunately, mosquitoes are unavoidable anywhere you go in Port Aransas...

The Tropic Island Resort isn't anything fancy , but it is comfortable and affordable. We had a King bedroom which had a microwave and refrigerator and nice large flat screen TV. The bathroom was large enough and it had a tub/shower combo. We like to stay here because it is convenient to walk to anywhere in town. You can go... More

Terrible stay, our medication was stolen. We tried to report it to the owner who then got very aggitated and said we were lying. He then, with all of his staff, retaliated and did not clean our rooms, empty trash or bring us fresh towels. He also made the experience very miserable because he started a confrontation every time we... More

This was an interesting incident. After they received room service for the first time, the guest informed us that various medications were so carefully removed from each of their pill containers. We explained, this must be a mistake, for you must have a key to enter the room. This lead to the accusations of our staff stealing from them. These... More

This place shows pride in workmanship and love of job were evident. Staff appear to enjoy their job, so service is given with a smile and enthusiasm. The weekly "Meet and Greet" is warm, friend.
