    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.

    Goodbyes and Beginnings

    ... What I really want is to just be with him now. Experience all the fun and crazy things that happen in Dan the "Man's" life.

    I am envious that he is able to take so much time away from the normal stresses of life to do what he wants. People get so stuck in the monotony of work, eat, sleep that no one really gets to do the things they dreamed they would. So when Dan offhandedly told me that I should join him, I laughed. I thought that there was no way I ...

    ... further so we persevered another block or two in and out of shops including a genuine Murano glass shop - again pushy but I resisted.

    By the time we got to the Cheesecake Factory, I was ready to eat something - I have no idea what time it was – perhaps 1pm. I would have liked soup and salad but the soup didn’t appeal. I settled for a lunch time serve of Chicken Ceasar Salad and Doug had a lunch time serve of fish and chips and a tropical fruit ...

    The big day has arrived. Today we start our cruise. The Coral Princess arrived early in the morning, start disembarking passengers normally around 7:30 AM with the last getting off around 10 AM. Once the people disembark, the staff work feverishly cleaning and making up the rooms, the fuel is replenished and fresh supplies taken onboard. By noon, the new passengers start to show up at the cruise facilities, and once the crew are ...

    I awake feeling refreshed and ready for another day at sea. Peter fetches the customary early morning coffee. I have no idea where he gets it from...it just appears, and I am grateful.

    We have breakfast at Johnny Rockets again as we enjoyed it yesterday. We then gather our things and head to the pool deck. After what looks like some early morning showers the sky is clear and the sun is beating down as people arrive up top to claim their sunbeds. We get 2 near ...

    ... We awoke refreshed & rejuvenated! Time to hit the town! We hit one of our favorite spots, Coconuts Bahama Grill. Absolutely love that place! Right on the water and we were there just in time to catch the most amazing sunset. Stunning! Dinner was incredible, as always. The best lobster bisque I'd ever had. It had WHOLE lobster claws in it! After dinner it was a moonlit stroll on the beach. The perfect end to a perfect ...
