My family just returned from a refreshing vacation in South Florida at the Tropic Seas Resort. One thing I have to say upfront is if you are wanting to plan a family vacation to South Florida, right now is the perfect time to plan it. The beach is not over crowded one bit and there is no oil in sight.
As soon as we arrived at the Tropic Seas Resort, we were greeted with the most amazing sunset.
I knew as soon as we seen this sunset that we were going to have a wonderful time. Isn’t it just so inviting? You are treated to this sunset each night. Beautiful!
The Rooms: We stayed in the luxury one bedroom apartment. It was amazing as once you walked out your door, you were on the sand and the beach. Also, you could just look right out the living room window and right there was the lovely view of the ocean.
My husband and I really loved the idea of the bedroom being separate from the living room. We put all the suitcases in the bedroom and just enjoyed the living room as a family with not having to worry about all our “stuff” being around us. It really helped us to relax on the trip and be stress free.
The one bedroom apartment comes with a dining area along with a big flat screen TV.
The kitchen is full equipped with a microwave, coffee pot, stove, refrigerator, dishwasher and full sink to where you do not have to eat out every meal.
The bedroom has two full beds and is equipped with a TV/DVD combo which we loved as the girls would want to watch their TV show at night and hubby and I could watch our own TV show in the living room.
The bathroom was a full bathroom with extra room. Mostly hotels are really cramped places but that was not the case with the Tropic Seas Resort. Plenty of room to turnaround and also complete with full bath sets daily.
Another luxury was a full closet available to hang clothes and not just leave them in your suitcase to get wrinkled. We loved this!
Amenities: The resort has a full size pool with extras for the kids that include floats, sand buckets, shovels and surf boards. My girls were loving this everyday and would wake up first thing and want to go see what they could use in the pool for the day. The pool has several beach chairs situated all around the pool for your comfort and relaxation in the sun.
Once you had your fun in the sun at the pool, there was a easy walkway from the pool to the beach. The walkway also had a shower so you could shower off all the sand once you returned from the beach.
Other amenities that you will find useful are:
- Free wireless internet
- On-site complimentary parking
- Guest Barbeque
- Daily housekeeping
(except Sundays and major holidays)
- Guest laundry
- Fax service
- Heated pool
- Beach towels
- Cable television
- Complimentary coffee
- Ice machine
- Telephones with individual voicemail
Pros: The resort is a very clean resort and all the staff were very friendly. You are able to just park your car and stay at the resort all day or you can take short stroll down the street and choose from several nice quality restaurants, live entertainment on the square or take the family on the pier.
Cons: The resort does offer complimentary breakfast, but it only includes danishes and coffee. This is not that big of a con as you are able to cook breakfast in your room but just wanted to mention it in case you like resorts with complimentary breakfast.
Great for: Families, Honeymooners, Girls Getaway, Couples, Solo Travel
