We had such a nice time at this resort. Went with my five year old grandson and his other Grandma. We got the One bedroom suite with a king size bed and nice living area and kitchen. We brought a lot of snacks and drinks, since it is local for me. The weather was beautiful, but very hot. There was...

Non-luxurious place with 16 rooms at the beach. Our efficiency room had a view over the pool and the beach. The hotel offers direct access to the beach! We felt very relaxed there. The longchairs around the pool are comfortable. Most are in the sun, a few will offer shade. We did not miss a restaurant or fitness room. The...

My husband and I stayed at Tropic Seas Resort, for a week at the end of April 2013, this was the first time we had ever taken a vacation at the beach. We were overwhelmed by the friendly owners and staff, the cleaniness of our room and the location of this place. I know many people come here every year...

We went to Florida for 2 weeks to get out of the cold and couldn't and picked a better place than Tropic Seas Resort! The hotel is clean, the furniture has been recently updated, the beds were super comfortable, the rooms have a nice "beachy" feel to them along with the fact that Tropic Seas is right on the beach...

I recently stayed at this wonderful small hotel and can not recommend it enough for those seeking a completely relaxing and serene environment. The hotel is only two stories high and all the rooms seem to have beautiful ocean views. My sister and I had a one bedroom suite on the second floor, and we spent many hours sitting in...

Returned recently from an absolutely wonderful stay at Tropic Seas Resort Motel! My sister and I were looking for a relaxing place to have a long awaited reunion. Had stumbled upon the special area of no high rises at Lauderdale by the sea four years ago and fell in love with it. At that time we stayed elsewhere in LBTS...

If you want a nice local motel, Tropic Seas on El Mar will fit the bill. Located directly on the beach, it has a nice heated pool w/lounge chairs. Pool towels are provided in your room for use. Some of the rooms could use a tiny bit of updating in the bathrooms, otherwise it suffices nicely. It's walking distance to...

We recently returned from our first stay at Tropic Seas & will return! It is a quaint, quiet (for the most part...there was one child who was very loud & not redirected by parents), well maintained motel with gorgeous views of the ocean from all rooms. The rooms are nicely decorated with updated beds & linens & are clean. We...
