My kids and I visited for a couple of days and we could not be happier. The location and view is amazing and the greeting from the Spanish house keeper was so home welcoming and friendly. The only thing was that there was a funny smell of smoke coming from a down stairs area & we heard a lot of... More

We are locals and just wanted to get away for a little staycation and this little roadside motel was the perfect place. Sandwiched halfway between the L-B-T-S pier and the wonderful Sea Watch Restaurant. It could not have been more relaxing. I did not have very high expectations for luxurious accommodations therefore I was not disappointed. The two rooms we... More

I spent 4 days and 3 nights at the Tropic Seas Resort and the view was absolutely breathtaking when the evening sun beamed through the palm trees and bounced off the swimming pool. The front porch was positioned just right so that I could see the pool a few feet away and the ocean waves just beyond the pool. As... More

A 1960s motel which happens to be in a great oceanfront location. Nice landscaping, small pool. Only about 16 rooms. If your neighbors are civilized, this can be a good experience. We left just before a group of trash loudmouths infested the place. Previously, night-time stargazing on the lounge chairs was pleasant. Updated beds; outdated kitchens. For $200/night off season,...
