“Stay Away From The "Rustic" Cottages !”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012

I recently stayed with my wife and daughter. We used to live in WPB and stayed here often up to 7 years ago.WOW, have the older cottages fallen apart !! We are easy going, and, I am a maintenance supervisor for a property management company. This cottage ( unit C212) was so bad it could not pass a section 8 inspection and should NEVER be rented !! There are 4 holes in the walls, german cockroaches, a hole in the entry door where it has rusted/rotted out/ no fire extinguisher/ all the blinds are bent/broken/rusted out appliances /ac return/ no drain cover in the tub/the bathroom door knob freezes up and wont turn/ water stains on the ceilings in the rear bdr and bathroom. etc etc. We went in and complained and they had no problem offering us another cottage. We looked at it and it was no better, holes in the walls and all, plus, roach bait along all the cabinet edges! I asked about a better cottage and they would only give us an upgrade if we paid for it. So, we ended up in unit C76, wich was A LOT better ( still some minor problems-I had to plunge the clogged shower, trim missing, blinds broken) but, no german cockroaches ! I was VERY DISSAPOINTED that we had to pay for the upgrade. The old owners would never have charged for an upgrade after what we saw in unit c212 ! The beds were ALL HARD !!

Room Tip: I firmly state, stay away from the old/ "rustic" cottages

This place has everything you need – the cabins come equipped with a full kitchen, bathroom, living room and beds. The older cabins is what we stayed in – they are clean but old. One of our beds was very old and stiff as a board. So the comfort wasn’t there but they are working on that. If you’re looking for fresh and new make sure you ask for a new cabin when making your reservations. Tropical Palms is working on replacing the older cabins with new ones so soon enough all of the cabins will be new. They have a nice community pool, a putt putt course (nothing fancy but it’s free!), fun activities for the kids and it has great scenery. We had a couple of issues with our cabin and the clerk at the front desk was very friendly and quick to fix our problems. We plan on coming back because of the price and location. All of the staff we encountered were very nice and helpful. There is primitive camping available and RV/campers areas to park with full hook ups. They are pet friendly but do charge $150 fee that will be refunded if there are no problems with “Fido” on your stay. The location is great with Old Town within walking distance and minutes from all of the attractions in Orlando (Disney, Universal, Arabian Knights, Gator Land, etc.) We will be coming back soon.

Room Tip: Ask for the newer cabins if you want clean, new and more comfort. They area all small but it's...

Just got back from 3 days there. Make sure you reserve either the premium or platinum cabin. Unfortunately we didn't and the standard cabin (209) we had was definitely in need of help. It had been roughly used and not taken care of. Be careful of the bedroom closest to the door. There is a step down and it can be missed and falls can happen.The grounds are gorgeous..nice activities, especially if you have children, just be aware that there are cost involved. Old Town just up the road and you can walk to it.

Room Tip: Make sure you reserve either the premium or platinum cabin

Just got back from 3 days there. Had a bit of an issue with check-in, given incorrect info. Luis however made it RIGHT! The Platinum Cottages are BEAUTIFUL. We were in # 59. The grounds are gorgeous..nice activites if you have kids. Old Town just up the road. Only complaint is they need to staff the pool area. While it is posted No Lifeguard....some parents felt the pool was a "babysitter" and some of the kids were pretty rough and had no regard for others in the GORGEOUS saltwater pool. Cannot wait to make another stay here!

Room Tip: DO NOT rent Standard or Studio cottages. Very old and outdated!

Stayed here for five nights in August......stayed in the grass area with elect....water ....and sewer........for $35 per night........while there........it rained off and on for two days.......and this area became a wet mess that didn't dry out

Overall the park is ok......clean but somewhat needing attention

Over price for what you get

I had a very nice time with my family at Tropical Palms. We had alot of fun at the pool and the cafe food was fast and delicious. New items on the menu were a big hit with us. There are plenty of new young staff, but they are very friendly, always smiling, and willing to help on the drop of a dime. My room was very clean and we didn't see any bugs. We will be back.

Room Tip: Premium or Platinum-Worth it!
