I recently stayed at Tropic Island for the weekend. Came in on a Friday 8/3 and left on Sunday8/5. On our way down from Dallas we had a flat tire and other car trouble so it was not a pleasant trip. The girl at the front desk was smiling and friendly and efficient. She was knowledgable of the area and... More

Very clean and plenty of room in the RV park for getting trailers in and out and lots of room for kids to ride bikes, scooters. Clean bathhouse as well. Close to town and beach. I have stayed in their rooms too and they are very clean and very reasonable. Not a fancy condo but a great place to stay... More

The staff are very friendly and welcoming. The property is in good shape and the room was larger than I expected. The beds were very comfortable. Walking distance to the Ocean, shopping etc. Great place for those of us that love to fish and socialize.

From the very first step into the office, the man running the motel was very rude to my 10 year old daughter! We had a hard time finding anything open for our first nights stay, so we decided to book a one night room. The a/c was ok and so was the bathroom. But the beds had previous people's hair... More

My husband and I spent the month of Feb. at The Tropic Island. We made reservations on the spur-of-the -moment, so the only space available was the efficiency kitchenette. It served our purposes, as we wanted to fish all day. We had a problem with the frig. and it was fixed promptly. ALL the people there were sooooooooo friendly and... More

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

tropicislandresort, Manager at Tropic Island Resort, responded to this review

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...
