“Very Clean and a Great Time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2014

Yes the place did raise their rent, BUT my wife and i checked all around the island and this is by far the cleanest, nicest place, AND it is still $100 cheaper then other places. The staff was beyond friendly, the location was unbeatable, and the amenities were great. I recommend this place to anyone who plans to visit the island. My family will be staying here again next year!

Room Tip: They stay booked, but I would try to stay close to the rec room.

We stayed here with another couple in a two bedroom condo house. Very clean. There are some less than clean places to stay in Port A and will cost you an arm and a leg to stay in their filth, but not Tropical Resort. They were very friendly and my family and I had an excellent time.

This place has raised their lot rent $100 a month in the past 2 years all so we can sit there and watch him work on his fishing boat. Stayed there 2 years in a row and watched as nothing was done to improve anything in the RV park. I guess until enough people like me get fed up with crap like this nothing will change. Count my wife and I out of this park for ever.

Room Tip: This place is "NOT" worth $519 a month to stay here.

We're sorry about the misunderstanding about the price but not contacting us to verify if you'll be affected with the price change is not on us (which you're not actually affected). And as for Ken, the owner, he has a personal life of his own, too. He can't always be around the property 24/7 but will be happy to accommodate or fix something for you. The only hobby of the owner is fishing and traveling and having a business is tiring.

Our prices needed to change because of other places raising up, we're not forcing you to stay with us but contacting us to verify something is a very big help on our part.

Thank you

Stephanie and Ken are awesome at Tropic Island RV resort. Great accommodations and came through when I was in a pinch! Very nicely located in the heart of Port Aransas. Great pool, nice neighbors, quite, and kid friendly!

Highly recommended!

Booked a last minute stay for my son and I got get down for a group event on the Island. I wanted clean, efficient, friendly and comfortable. We could not have been more pleased with the promises kept at this efficiency motor hotel room. Parked right in front of our room which we found in prefect order. It is obviously an older property but had some good updates, nice TV, appliances, microwave, refrigerator and coffee maker all in working order. Nice AC blowing with very fresh towels, clean sheets and the benefit of being a larger efficiency because of the age of the property. The location lends itself to a quick trip or an overnight with family. I would have given five stars except for some very minor quirks. I would trust a stay at this property, thanks to the staff for making the extra effort, I hope you are rewarded for your work and expense.
