Reviewed 27 June 2014

We go the Tropic Seas for our annual family reunion. With the variety of spaces available, all of our family gets the accommodations they need. Its a short walk to town, is directly on the Atlantic and is really well maintained. We always love our stay!

Room Tip: For views, second floor is a must.

Love the view and location! Very peaceful and relaxing place. The beach is right in front of the room. The hotel is very clean, there is always people taking care of the pool, grass, rooms, etc. Over all, its the perfect place to spend a romantic vacation with your special someone and family.

What we loved most about Tropic Seas was the view, which from every room is absolutely incredible! The rooms are well maintained, very comfortable, and the resort had all the necessary amenities of home. Beautifully landscaped grounds surround the pool and patio area, all of which are extremely well kept as well as spacious and private. Our hostesses, Eleanor and Linda, were fabulous! They were naturals at promoting a friendly, family-like atmosphere with all patrons. In addition, Eleanor and Linda are extremely knowledgeable about the area, always able to answer any questions as well as recommend outstanding eateries - whether that be awesome Italian food, or simple sandwiches. This was our 4th trip and we can't wait to go back!

Tropic Seas has a fantastic beachfront location. The beach is just steps from your room. The beach is wide and well taken care of. We watched in the morning as any trash and seaweed was picked up and the sand was smoothed by tractor. It was a 5-10 minute walk to the retail stores in Lauderdale by the Sea. Eleanor and Linda were great to work with starting with the reservation process and throughout our stay including Eleanor taking of photo of us just before we departed. I have not seen the type of care provided by Innkeepers like Eleanor and Linda in a long time. On our Florida trips we like to stay on both the the Atlantic and Gulf coasts. On this trip we stayed on the Atlantic Coast (Tropic Seas) and Gulf Coast (Marco Island Hilton). For the overall beach experience I liked Tropic Seas and Lauderdale by the Sea best. For room selection I would ask for a room on the second floor. We had room 205. Rooms are a little dated but updating work has been done and property is in good shape and clean. We loved Lauderdale by the Sea and the beachfront Tropic Seas!

Room Tip: Second Floor Rooms have the best views. Room 201, 202, and 205 seem especially good

We enjoyed our 2 night stay at the Tropic Seas and were not disappointed with our choice. The hotel/motel is dated but the rooms and grounds were well maintained. Our room that included the cooking facility was clean and bright, nicely decorated (as in the period the hotel dates to). We enjoyed sitting just outside out door and visiting with other guests. Parking is just off the street but ample and close. The managers, Eleanor and Linda were friendly and helpful when needed. We would highly recommend the Tropic Seas for a casual stay for a night or even a week or longer.

Room Tip: The hotel is L shaped. The rooms to the north were the best for sitting out especially in the mornin...

From the moment we stepped out of our car and were greeted by Eleanor asking if we were ready to check into "paradise", we knew this was going to be a pleasant vacation. The breezeway at the entrance is welcoming, but the view beyond of palm trees, dune grass, beach and ocean really beckon you to enjoy this comfortable resort. We found it advertised online and chose to stay there after exchanging prompt emails from the owner and reading the favourable reviews. We only spent 4 days there( would have stayed longer if work allowed) but in that short time we felt very familiar and comfortable. We will definitely be back.

Our efficiency apt was bright clean and very roomy. The inside is up to date, the TV is too, and the bed and pillows absolutely heaven. We could wake up and immediately see the sun coming up over the Atlantic. The patio area and pool are well maintained and welcoming and the chaise lounges and chairs are all new in blue and white and very comfortable. This area is great for families, complete with your own grill if you wish.
And for more room, a 50 ft walk to the beach gives you space and great access to the LBTS pier via the beach. The "four corners" of LBTS are only a 10 min walk, if that, and just the right distance to digest your dinner at one of the many fine restaurants. LBTS can be exciting and buzzing or quiet, whichever you choose. This is why it is so appealing to so many people. The community has just redone the "downtown area" with a square complete with pastel adirondack chairs.
Please see some of the photos we took in our short time there.

We just returned from a wonderful week at Tropic Seas. We had a spacious, comfortable one bedroom apartment, that was clean and pretty. We appreciated all the little touches, beach bags and towels to use, coffee and Danishes each morning, pool toys for the kids. Everything is well cared for and attractive. It is also perfectly located a couple of blocks from the grocery store, an easy walk to restaurants and three steps from a spectacular beach. We enjoyed every minute. And when we accidentally left something behind, Linda went above and beyond to get it back to us. We can't wait to return.
