We have been coming to Port Aransas for at least 10 years but had never stayed at the Tropic Island Resort. Our normal lodging was not available so after a long search we settled on Tropic Island. We stayed in a two bedroom suite located in the middle of the complex. It was clean and featured a full kitchen and bathroom. The bathroom was a little smaller than we would have liked for 4 persons but it was clean and did the job. AC was cold (a must in South Texas summers) and the guests on both side of us were quiet. Our son and his friend went swimming in the pool a few times and enjoyed it. It is further away from the beach than we normally stay and so we needed to drive to the beach instead of walking, but that wasn't a big deal breaker. We had a parking spot in front of our room for 1 vehicle, not sure what we would have done if we rented a golf cart. Overall, we enjoyed the stay and will book again if the dates are available.

Stayed: August 2017

Two really bad things happened during our stay. A little boy was run over by a golf cart. I'm not sure how this turned out. The other thing was the hotel room we were put in was right next to a room that had at least two dogs in it that barked non stop. Management did nothing to fix it or even offer me a discount rate for my bad experience. I wouldn't recommend staying here.

Unfortunately, it was a guest who was not being responsible and we felt horrible that this happened on our property. We are following up on him. This is absolutely not normal.
As far as dogs barking, we have our guests sign a pet agreement that states that they will be asked to leave if we encounter problems of this kind. Not sure when or who you reported this to.
Sorry you did not enjoy your stay.
Thank you for your feedback.

We stayed in a 2 bedroom condo, they are small but cute! The rooms are a tad bit out dated, didn't bother me other than only one bedroom has the side unit for air conditioner, so you have to sleep with all doors open. Pool upgrades that they have made are AMAZING! Parking is very limited. Across the street there is an ice maker and a place to eat, around the corner are beach shops and a CVS. I would stay here again

TWO BEDROOM SUITE: Pictures online were NOT what our room looked like. Was not hardwood floor it was old carpet and tile. And a lot smaller than we expected. However it was somewhat clean and housekeeping stopped by daily which was nice. BATHROOM: online pictures showed a pretty spacious bathroom, ours was tiny and the shower so small my husband who is 5'11 could barely stand up or turn around inside shower. It was also very dark and felt dirty. Tile was removed from bottom of shower and it was exposed concrete. I had to be very careful with my younger kids when they got in and out. There was no tub like picture shows online as well. KITCHEN: the kitchen was good, had all u needed to cook and eat with , good sized table and fridge. No complaints. LIVING ROOM: was spacious and had a comfy couch! No complaints. POOL AREA: The pool was great. Kids playing, adults BBQing, music playing and very laid back feel. My kids had a blast there. Pool perfect for my 4 year old and 9 year old both. Liked how there was a restroom right there and shower. So we didn't have to walk back to the room to potty! STAFF: the owners were cool you can feel the family owned vibe which is nice, and most the staff we encountered were smiling and friendly except this older lady that worked the front desk. She seemed grouchy and like she hated her job. I'm in service industry and costumer service is a must. Be friendly, smile and leave your grouchiness for after hours.

Thanks for your feedback! The pictures online with all the hardwood is 1 room on the the property. Unfortunately all of our rooms don't look like that. We are slowly but surely working on modernizing the buildings! We've only been here for 1 year :) And trust me the bathrooms are on the top of our list! We hope you can stay with us again soon!

We stayed here for the first time, and loved it. The room was nice and clean. The price was reasonable at $82 a night. We will definitely stay here again. You can tell that its an older hotel, however they are upgrading the rooms.
