Tropical Palms Resort and Campground
Ranked #14 of 154 Hotels in Kissimmee
Reviewed 5 April 2012

Our group of 5 stayed in one of the cabins. The master bedroom, the bunkbeds in another room, and the bed in the loft suited us perfectly. The room was clean, but when we checked in, the linens hadn't been changed from the previous occupant. A call to the office soon corrected that. There were no bugs in our cabin, or even out on the deck. Cooking meals there saved us money, although every chain restaurant in the USA seems to have a spot on the main drag.

The pool was small, but wasn't overcrowded when we were there. The pond has at least one alligator in it, and some people mentioned that there was a second gator, but I didn't see 2.

The location of the campground is the best feature, as it is close to many things, but set off from the main drag.

We liked it.

I find myself puzzled by all the recommendations/reviews in favor of Tropical Palms. It was horrible but it certainly was not all that great. Upon pulling in everything looks really nice. I just found myself to be disappointed at the conditions of the bath houses. Just in general not very convenient for taking a shower and getting ready/dressed. How about some hooks or somewhere to set your belongings down? The bath house clearly had not been cleaned in some time. We stay at a lot of campgrounds and know that they generally get pretty messy quickly but there was just dirt everywhere. I saw the same dirt and crime and streaks all week. The soap dispensers and paper towels were constantly empty and the trash cans were always overflowing. Not impressed.
The pool is the real joke. It is crowded and loudand very small. There are so many people in the pool that I was grossed out. So grossed out that I did not go in once. People were everywhere. Just not an enjoyable pool experience for us! It's too bad because the pool building and cafe are in nice shape just too many people in one small pool.
The cafe at the pool is decent and food and beverage prices are reasonable which is nice.
I couldn't pack up fast enough here.
Overpriced and crowded.
I also didn't the area. Just felt unsafe and uncomfortable. Disappointed because i thought we found a good place.

We stayed here for the last 10 days....have had a great experience. We ate lunch in the cafe several times...food was great and prices were reasonable. The luau was alot of fun. We thought $10 for food and entertainment was a great price...and $2.50 for a draft beer was awesome. The night before we walked up to Old Town at one of the bars and paid $13 for two drinks...with no entertainment. The Wi-Fi is extremely slow.

My family camped at Tropical Palms this past week and won't be returning. The property is nice and the heated pool was the best feature. We love their sister park, Sun N' Fun in Sarasota, and assumed Tropical Palms was managed in a similar style. Unfortunately, we found that the cafe at the pool was never open according to the 11-7 schedule and each day was open 11-4. The slide for the kids, $5 charge, was also only functional 11-4 each day. We stayed here because they offered fun activities each day. Unfortunately, they cancelled most of the scheduled activities that were on their monthly calendar they advertise and our kids were disappointed when the jewelery and tie die events were cancelled. We did buy $10 tickets to the Luau hoping to enjoy the one event they didn't cancel while we were there and were very disappointed. The food was awful and the tables were full. We sat at a separate table so far away that we couldn't see the band or dancers. We were also surprised to find that a $10 ticket didn't include anything to drink. No surprise that the cafe was open that night to sell you something to drink.
This is yet another park that seems to cater to snow birds and forgets about the rest of us. It could be a great park but needs new management. The gift shop area in the front is filthy, shuffleboard courts need to be resurfaced and mini golf course is plagued with ants. There are posted rules like no dogs doing their business on other people's campsites, but that rule isn't enforced. Also a no campfire rule and that's not enforced. We won't stay here again and will raise our concerns to Royalty Resorts.

I stayed here with my family in one of the 2bedroom cottages, I loved it, the pool area is fantastic with the heated pool and all the activities they have poolside, what doesn't seem right to me on this is they charge you 5.00 everytime you want clean towels and to have a maid it is 20.00 to clean your room, isn't that what we are paying for in the first place?? Because of these extra charges I have moved locations.

My husband and I took our grandaughters there during spring break and really enjoyed our stay there a few years ago and are planning a return trip next year. Cabins have modern accommodations, fully equipped kitchen, decent size bedrooms, close to all theme parks and shopping. Downside was the tv was old and did not have good reception and the furniture in the living room was old, uncomfortable and needs to be replaced. May have been replaced by now. Also liked the cabin's deck with bbq and heated pool was nice. It is located in the heart of Kissimmee, but you can't tell since it is located a few blocks off of the main street thru town, it was very quiet and we felt safe there. I recommend this place to anyone looking for value in a resort.
