Fodor's Review

This two-story property has an unbeatable location—directly on the beach, flanking 150 feet of pristine sands and sparkling blues—and is a favorite of annual European vacationers looking for longer stays. Built in the 1950s and last renovated in 2007, the tiled units are clean and comfortable, with tropical rattan furniture and ceiling fans. Coffee and Danish pastry are served daily. Accommodation is generally more spacious here than at nearby competitors.

Tropic Seas Resort Motel Review

We spent a great week at Tropic Seas Resort Hotel this past October. The location is fantastic, right on the beach. Our two small children had a wonderful time alternating playing on the beach, in the ocean or in the pool. This is an ideal hotel for those who enjoy small limited service hotels directly on the beach for a vacation alone, a romantic get away or a family vacation. We will definately return.
