Misty is the best! They really went above and beyond for us. She let us reserve just the right room and worked with us on our special requests. Nice pool, clean, comfortable room, at very competitive rates. We will be back.

He answered all our questions before and during our stay. He was very helpful whenever we had a problem. Breakfast options and beach are nearby. Rooms were... More

I hardly know where to start there were so many great things at this place. I will start with the owner Lars: he bent over backwards to please us-and there were 5 demanding ladies so this is saying a lot!! I actually felt sorry for him at times having to deal with us:). Beach umbrellas, towels and chairs provided. We... More

From all the places we visited during our round trip, which I took with my mother, this was one that we unfortunately did not like that much. While the place seems to be popular among other tourists, especially from the US and northern european countries, I do have some critics regarding the room we stayed in. First of all, very... More

I want to start this by saying that I'm So confused on this review because there are so many things that just are not true. The room that you stayed in is the last room under the breezeway.

We live in Ohio but grew up in Ft. Lauderdale. Tropicaire Resort reminds me of Old vintage Lauderdale-50's and 60's. Well managed, Very clean and Very quiet. Our neighboring guest were delightful to talk to.
