      Historical Traveler Reviews Tropic Cay Beach Resort Fort Lauderdale

      Great Location

      from

      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!

      from

      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

      from

      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!

      from

      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.

      PARTY!

      from

      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?

      God Awful!

      from

      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!

      from

      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

      from

      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

      from

      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

      from

      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.

Mind you, there were also health nuts who at ages 80 -plus were constantly watching their diets! Most of all, we said adios to "The Grinch" who had a double dose of nasty pills mixed with his breakfast cereal and tried to ruin everybody else's mood last Christmas Eve.

      I felt I deserved a relaxing weekend following this stressful experience. We enjoyed the beach; I still bask in the beauty of the sky and the water, soaking in the fact that this is really my life right now. I love going on a night adventure and seeing the lights from the boats, and the stars are so bright. It's nice ...

All six were lovely people and we enjoyed their company throughout the cruise. Wyndy was retired Air Force and when I mentioned my surprise at the machine guns I think he thought I was naive. "Of course they have machine guns," he said. "They are Coast Guard."

      As it turned out, we got there just in time to get on the 12:00 tram through the park. This is a good deal because they really do a good job explaining the environment and the wildlife you can expect to see. One of the first things they explained was why all the road construction was happening on Highway 41.

      It seems that over the years, lots of ...
