Dear friends of ours from Holland recommended Tropic Seas Resort to us as they have been coming for thirty some years and have come to call it their second home...and now we know why! The hotel is beautiful without being pretentious and the grounds are absolutely stunning!
We immediately felt welcomed and at home by the gracious management. The location could not be better as we did not rent a car and were able to access the grocery store, pharmacy and many inviting shops within a short walking distance. There are also many wonderful restaurants to select from if one chooses to dine out but with the view from our room and the grill in the courtyard we chose to eat in most nights...did I mention the amazing full moon that rose over the water directly in front of us! We stayed in a newly decorated one bedroom which had a great kitchen as well. The resort also provides amazing coffe and danish for the guests to enjoy in the morning which we found to be quite lovely.

All in all it was exactly what we needed to recharge and relax. I would highly recommend it to anyone as there were both families and couples who seemed to be having an amazing stay.

A Great get away for families seniors and couples. This hotel is on the beach a "perfect" place for kids to go and if they don't like the water there is a town just down the road with a pier and great restaurants. Also many nice people go down here, including seniors and adults. Even as a 13 year old i have made many friends down at tropic seas. This was a great trip and cannot way to go next year!

Stayed on the 23rd of Oct/12 because our flight was delayed a day. The manager was very helpfull and was very accomodating. Went to Lauderdale about 20 times and have to say the Tropic Seas by the sea is a perfect place to stay. We had a room on the second floor and the view of the ocean was perfect. Room was nice and clean for the night we stayed there and have to say that I found a new hotel by the sea that I wished I found 20 years ago....but it was always full. This place is really well kept and is a perfect place for everybody. Grounds are butifull with a heated pool...quiet settings on the beach....You won't regret your stay. The manager has been there for over 10 years and have to say that she really kept this place spottless. Good job....(there is a reason why she is still in charge....she kept this place impecable) Would go back for sure. Really liked our stay and also really apreciated that she could accomodate us for the night. Would really go back for a longer stay without hesitating. Next time we think about a trip to Lauderdale by the sea, the Tropic seas will be our prefered place...no more searching for us....found a great place...Enjoy

Just on our last night out of five and our second visit to the Tropic Seas. Could not find one negative thing to say about the place. The staff are friendly and helpful and all the rooms have new furniture. To wake up in the morning and sit outside your room with a cup of coffee watching the sun come up, what more can I say? The rooms are immaculately clean and the grounds clean and well tended and you have the added bonus of free coffee, pastries and a newspaper. Stay here you wont regret it.

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.
