In searching for last minute accommodations we came across Tropic Isle. The pictures on the resort's website showed clean and updated rooms, and the list of facilities/amenities was a good match. We were delighted to arrive and find that things were as promised - clean room with a kitchen, poolside, and a private beach across the street. While the resort is small, and the rooms are small, it was just enough for our family of four (two adults, two preschoolers). Between the pool, beach and other interests on AMI, we easily filled our time. What we most appreciated about the resort was the very personable service, the laundry pick-up, the wine & cheese night, the cleanliness, and the way that the lush garden-type setting insulated us from the resorts and traffic around us. It was not terribly crowded, as there arent' that many rooms to begin with. Our porch faced the pool and was GATED! - a real gift to parents who are constantly chasing their children around to keep them out of danger!
If you are looking for a quiet, low-key, friendly, private-feeling locale, with easy access to various points on Anna Maria Island, this is the one! We will likely go back, though probably in a 2-bedroom larger unit next time.
