I stay here every year in May for a week. I bring the girls down and we have a blast..great location across from the beach...it is not a 5 star hotel for sure, but I love it!!
Great place to party!
I stayed at the Gold Coast last year for SPRING BREAK and had a blast!
It is not really a place of luxury but tons of fun, so who cares right?!! I am planning to go back again this year! See ya there!
Disliked Tropic Cay
We love Fort Lauderdale. When we go we usually stay in a big resort hotel and spend a lot of money, so I tried to save some money by staying in a smaller property with less amenities. So we chose the Tropic Cay Hotel. I did my homework. The property had been approved as an SSL (superior small lodging) property, which means they had to go through certain inspections to be given that label. So I thought we were safe making a reservation there. Boy was I wrong. We lasted there two nights, then packed it up and went down the street to the Sheraton.
Priced Right for What you Got!
The owners were super nice to my girls. But I probably will not go back there with children. As far as me, it was fine for the price. I wish the pool was heated and I wish they would provide more towels but it is in walking distance to Beach Place about a 3/4 mile walk. I was fine and would go again only without children.
Its true walking into this hotel is like walking into a huge puddle of beer....but what could be more wonderful then that? We sure did keep our music loud all hours of the night and I highley recommend staying at this hotel. Where else could you throw the hotel furnishings off the top floor without getting kicked out?
This had to be the worst place my husband and I ever stayed......as a matter of fact we didn't ! I asked for a full refund and we fould someplace else to stay.
Run Away As Fast As You Can!
My husband and I sent for a brochure from this hotel after seeing their website. It arrived and was filled with beautiful photos and information. We were so looking forward to our vacation and arriving at The Tropic Cay. BAD MISTAKE! When we arrived, the front desk was our first clue that it's advertising was FALSE. However we went ahead and took the room...Momentarily. The room was disgusting, the air conditioner was leaking into a very large puddle on the filthy carpet, the broken window and furniture was repaired with DUCT TAPE! We sat on the bed without unpacking for about 20 minutes to gather ourselves and make a plan. We went back to the office, requested a credit to our credit card. The "desk clerk" informed us that we would NOT be welcome back at his establishment. We were very grateful for that little bit of information!
Wild place, Friendly People
I stayed at the Gold Coast for Spring Break just recently. It is a perfect hotel for spring breakers. I wouldn't recommend it for families during the month of march. There are always people out on the balcony and there is constant drinking going on. The beach is a short walk across the street. The location is great with a short walk to bars and clubs just down the strip. I recommend Primanti Brothers pizza for late night as it is open 24 hours. Stay at the Gold Coast and get wasted. The Gold Coast Cafe has $2 margaritas on T and TR. Take advantage of it. I wish I was still there now but my body would have broken down after a few more days of drinking.
The worst hotel i've ever stayed in
when our party of eight arrived, we were walking in beer. The noise of partying kids kept us up all night we slept in our clothes because the sheets were stained, the dresser was covered with sticky residue. the room smelled musty the floors hadn't been vacumed. The pools were filthy. A very rundown place.
A very bad experience
According to the Expedia website, this hotel is a 3 star hotel. However, nothing could be further from the truth. This hotel is a dilapidated, rundown remnant of what once may have been a decent family hotel. However, that was a long time ago. Neglect and crime has turned this hotel in a scary place. Cracked windows, broken doors, dirty phone, sagging mattrasses, stained sheets, all the bad things you can think of, this hotel has it. I am not complaining of the appearance of the front desk. It should have been a warning, but the hallways and rooms beyond are much worse. The only thing that looked decent, from a distance, was the pool, the pool they show in their brochure. Believe me, this hotel is truly a dump.
Travelling with my wife made this bad experience all the more distressful.

Called Spirit first thing in the morning and the guy I spoke with said my bag would be on the next flight from Panama to Fort Lauderdale, which isn't supposed to arrive until 8.50 tonight. Luckily I ponied up for the Copa flight! Hopefully I'll have all my worldly possessions back by this time tomorrow. I can either get a taxi out to the airport and pick it up from the Spirit office which would cost about $40 ...
... cool. Unfortunately could have spent more time here, but we still had a 3&1/2 hour drive from here. We still spent 6 hours here though. Fort Lauderdale for the night then off on the cruise in the morning. A very Happy Mothers Day to all. I'm sure you all got spoilt rotten. Not sure we have internet on the cruise, so if I don't update for a week, that's why. Will be thinking of all you hard workers whilst we sitting back sipping cocktails, cruising the ...
... There we found a place that organizes bus tours and boat cruises to alligator parks, the Bahamas, and the beloved Key Islands. I had heard before that Key West was an absolute must see and we were easily convinced by the guy that it is indeed one of the most beautiful places in The States. So we booked a bus trip that would take us there on early Monday morning and back on Wednesday night. When that was taken care off, we went to the hostel to find a hotel in Key West where ...
Moved onto Paradise Island RV Resort at Fort Lauderdale. We went to the Winterfest Boat Parade on the New River at Fort Lauderdale. Nothing short of spectacular. 100 boats decked out in their Christmas lights, with lots of entertainment on board. Fireworks and laser show. Met some great people. Fantastic night!! Couldn't stop taking photos.
... There is more than 23 miles of beaches but very little surf by Australian standards. Fort Lauderdale is the wreck dive site capital of the United States with more than 80 coral and artificial reefs.
We caught the Sun Trolley ($2 per person to ride all day) that links the beach with restaurants and shops along the picturesque Las Olas Boulevard to the Historic Arts and Entertainment district where we boarded a ...
