“Great location, clean and unpretentious”
Reviewed 11 November 2012

Stayed at the Tropic Seas Resort in mid-October for 5 days and, for what we wanted, it was perfect. The decor is not going to impress you but the ocean view is perfect, the beach amazing, the beds very comfortable, the room and grounds very clean and the staff helpful and very friendly. The kitchenette has everything you need and more, though it is a bit dated. The only minor problem we encountered was a noisy air conditioner that made it difficult to fall sleep. Brought it to the attention of the staff and hopefully it will be replaced! An overhead fan was helpful to circulate the air but if the ac wasn't on, the room got hot and stuffy. Over all, I would highly recommend this place for a quiet, relaxing get away in a perfect location.

15 days on the Atlantic Ocean in this little jewel of a hotel. The rooms have been improved with new beds, furniture etc and it really is a taste of paradise 400 yards from the pier, with several superb bars and restaurants.
It is your choice how active a holiday you have. Our third two week holiday at Tropic Seas Resort and every one has been brill.

I stayed here for 2 nights. The hotel is immaculate, very clean, the grounds well kept with a heated pool. You cannot beat the location. Right on the beach. It is designed for longer stays as well, but for a couple of nights the hotel room was just fine with a refrigerator and coffeemaker. The view from the second floor room is spectacular. There is an excellent coffee offered downstairs. Just danishes for breakfast but there is a Publix 5 min. drive from the hotel. You can walk on the beach to the pier and to the shops.
Bedding and pillows are very comfortable.

The place is very tranquil and tropical. Will go back again.

Tropic seas is in a great location but right on the beach. You can walk to restaurants, grocery stores and get anything you might need.It is a nice little neighborhood and right up the street is some great nightlife.The resort itself is very pretty and very comfortable and clean. They were replacig all the furniture just as I was leaving although it didn't really need to be replaced. The beds and pillows were very comfortable also. I plan to go back but I will upgrade to a effiency as the hotel room was too small. It was very quiet at night so we were able to sleep without being disturbed. They also had a continental breakfast everyday that we didn't expect...nice surprise!

Room Tip: Like I said the rooms are very small but the effiency's are good sized or the one bedroom suite...

Just stayed at Tropic Seas for a quick weekend and had a wonderful and tranquil stay.
Loved the new furniture and the beds were so comfortable!! Just sank into the pillows and had a great night's sleep.
Can't wait to go back!

Looking for ultimate relaxation on the ocean...then you won't want to miss this!
I was a guest at Tropic Seas along with two other families over Memorial Day Weekend. We have been going on vacation weekends at Tropic Seas at least twice a year for about ten years. The place is spotless, well maintained and efficiently run. The staff is friendly and accomodating from the managers Eleanor and Linda, to the maintenance staff and housekeepers. Everyone goes out of their way to ensure that your stay is nothing short of fabulous. Let me assure you that this little piece of heaven is not to be missed. Beautiful pool, terrific ocean view and gorgeous tropical breezes will make you want to return time and time again.

This year, I was extremely disappointed, finished tranquility, and relaxation between adults, or civilized family. There were too many children screaming, running around ... not taking care of the equipment of the hotel and no parents in sight .... They were always still in the pool and thereby preventing other customer to go. One evening they were 7 until 10:30 PM, still shouting. And when it was not the enfaits, there was a European family who took all the field to play soccer They began the game at 8:30 AM! and when it was not soccer, football ... across the suface of the hotel grounds. Yes I am disappointed, I understand that they too are entitled to be there, but not at the expense of others. We are from Canada we crossed the USA and we return as tired at the beginning of the holiday. Fortunately there was the sea ...
