“Planning on making this an annual stay” - February 3, 2016
Perfect vacation spot. The accommodations exceeded our expectations. Very nice and clean living area, and kitchenette. Spacious bedroom and comfortable bed. Kitchen stocked with cookware. The unit was clean and nicely decorated. The beach is just across the street. Each unit has its own beach chairs, and beach towels. The Entire staff was friendly and helpful.

“Great little place” - January 13, 2016
This is a great place to stay. It doesn't look like much from the outside but the rooms are clean and well kept. The office staff is very friendly and helpful at giving advice about local events and eats. The pool is small but clean and not busy. I would stay here again for sure.

“Well kept, cozy and equipped” - December 14, 2015
Our family has been vacationing on Anna Maria Island for the past seven years. We decided to go as a couple for our 25th Wedding Anniversary. Tropic Isle was the perfect get a way. Very clean, comfortable and beautiful lush, tropical setting. I would highly recommend it!

“Soccer time” - Decemberr 13, 2015
We stayed here at the Tropic Isle Beach Resort for 6 wonderful days. We came to watch our son play soccer. It was a very clean and everybody was very accommodating. Love that it had a little kitchen with everything you need. I would definitely stay here again. It is very close to many restaurants, bars and cafés.

“Great little piece of paradise!” - October 14, 2015 - Haddon Heights, New Jersey
I spent my SECOND mini vacation at Tropic Isle last week and I'm still impressed with the quality of the facility and the staff. Rooms, pool and the entire facility are kept in pristine shape and the staff is always friendly and helpful. It's proximity to the beach is a plus also but it's tucked back out of the main hustle and bustle of traffic. I love the place...can you tell?

“A couple of days on the beach” - October 8, 2015 - The Villages, Florida
Great place and location, beach was right across the street. We would recommend it highly . Towels beach chairs and umbrella there for you to take to the beach. Very tropical. The place was clean and really cute.

“Very quaint little resort” - October 5, 2015
We stayed in unit 3 the end of September and had a great time. The room was spotless and looked like it had been recently refurbished. 

The beach connected to the hotel is one of the nicest ones on the island (and we tried them all! )

We just had breakfast in the room so didn't use the kitchen much, but the fridge was ice cold. 

The little personal space outside the room is very nice. I had coffee out there every morning soaking it in. 

Like some of the other reviews there was some minor issues with the shower, but i had it figured out by the time we left. And the pillows are too fat (the bed was good) , but we always bring out own so that wasn't an issue for us. 

It was off season when we were there, and the staff was not around much but that was fine for me. 

All in all, we left with a smile and my wife and I really enjoyed our stay there. 

“Paradise"” - August 26, 2015 - Babylon, New York
Love the hotel, very laid back... peaceful. beach right across the street. Clean and very comfortable too. They have all the beach chairs and towels too. Makes it all very easy and enjoyable. A dip in the pool was wonderful as well. You cant go wrong.

“Absolutely Wonderful place!” - August 1, 2015 - Chesterfield, Missouri
We had never been to Anna Maria Island and were unsure as to where to stay. After looking at many reviews we decided on Tortuga Beach resort. Well low and behold, we called for a reservation and it was all booked! The management company that runs this resort also runs at least three others. Since we wanted to be close to the beach the Reservation agent suggested TROPIC ISLE.
What a lovely place! Sits directly across the street from the beach. A nice quiet resort surrounded by tropical trees and flowers. 
We stayed in one of the GULF VIEW LUXURY Studios on the second floor overlooking the pool. It was just fine for 2 people with a small kitchenette and full size refrigerator, small 2 burner ceramic cooktop,toaster oven,microwave. There was a nice large bathroom with a tub. The unit was very clean & delightful!
It was just perfect for people like us who do not spend large amt of time inside!
The pool was nice and clean and a place to relax after a day at the beach. 
They had beach chairs and umbrellas you could take to the beach. Our only compliant was that the chairs were way too low to the ground and did not provide any support. We ended up buying 2 chairs from Walmart and left them there. Better chairs need to be available esp for older people.
Staff was very nice except the lady when we checked in. She was not the most welcoming person. Our checkout person was wonderful and one of the Day Managers a gentleman was fantastic! He was so very helpful and wanted to make sure everything was great ! 
We had such a good time we have booked for the next two years! 
They have a lot of weddings there so you really need to plan and book ahead to be assured you can get a room you want.That is the only problem I see with all of their properties! It appears they cater to the wedding business and it concerns me that people like us may get left behind. If so there are many nice places to stay on Anna Maria Island!

“Great location and ammenities” - July 10, 2015 - Miramar, Florida
Great small hotel to stay, across from the beach, room are super clean and bed is very comfortable. This small hotel has all the amenities you need for a short getaway, we enjoyed the pool and walking around town. The staff was friendly. Specially Dante & Sarah. Will retrun if ever again travelling to Anna Maria Island.

“Great hotel, great price!" - July 9, 2015
This hotel was a wonderful stay for our one year wedding anniversary. Great proximity to the beach, friendly and SUPER helpful staff, and adorable (clean!) rooms. I would absolutely recommend this hotel for people going to Anna Maria island! :) GREAT PLACE!

“Vacation” - June 27, 2015 - Clifton Park, NY
Great location. Although it's not on the water it's right across the street and offers some views of the gulf. Beautiful and very spacious rooms. Great customer service as well. The pictures of the rooms don't do them justice. Well kept and SUPER clean! Will definitely stay here again.

“Spring Break with Grandchild” - May 20, 2015
We took our granddaughter to Florida for spring break. We all needed to get away from the cold. Very pleased with the resort area and the location. The beach was just across the road and easy to get to. The staff was great and very helpful. We had a downstairs room and it had a front and a back door. We could park right at the back door and get in the room without having to walk all the way around to the front. The room was very clean and comfortable. Had everything that you could want for a vacation. Also the small little front porch area had a table and chairs to enjoy sitting outside if you so wished. The pool was very nice and easily accessible. In fact the whole location of the resort was perfect for the location on the Anna Marie Island. Pretty much in the center so it wasn't hard to get to anything. When we go back, we will be looking to stay here again if possible.

“Comfortable spot close to the beach” - May 1, 2015 - Clifton Park, NY
We stayed here for 3 nights in March and enjoyed our stay thoroughly despite "too cold for the beach temps". The location on Anna Maria Island was great- walkable to numerous restaurants (both upscale and casual beach spots). The room was large and well equipped. We really liked having a couch in our sitting area. We didn't cook in but did notice that there was a grill for guests to use.

“Back again” - April 28, 2015 - Clifton, New Jersey
Love this place, this is the second year, this time in a larger unit, like living in my own, beautiful tropical home for two weeks. Already reserved for next year. Both years I entertained my FL friends in the gazebo and they all loved the location too.

“Close to the beach and family orientated” - April 26, 2015 - Peoria, Arizona
The accommodations fit our family well. Very close to the beach, quiet and relaxing. Close to restaurants and grocery stores. We had beach chairs, towels and an umbrella which made our beach experience enjoyable.

“Perfect vacation getaway, and I can't wait to return” - April 17, 2015
Delightful inn, across the street from the beach but with its own pool and lush gardens; this place was just perfect. We stayed upstairs and thoroughly enjoyed our large room and outdoor deck with table and chairs. Each afternoon we opened a bottle of wine and enjoyed some outdoors while overlooking the treetops, gardens, and gulf beyond. Leftover food and wine went right into the refrigerator; a microwave oven was on hand to heat up leftover food. I can't say enough. The Tropic Isle Beach Resort was the perfect March getaway spot and we will return!!

“Mid winter getaway.” - Jan. 31, 2015 - Lansing, Michigan
My husband and I were tired of the Michigan weather and needed a quick getaway. A friend suggested Anna Maria Island, Florida. After exploring the lodging options we decided on Tropic Isle. We were greeted by a friendly woman at the desk who welcomed us and she gladly gave us a map and some tips on restaurants. We stayed in the Studio King. When we opened the door we were in awe. The room was beautiful. The bed was very comfortable and the whirlpool tub was amazing after a day at the beach. The resort provides beach towels, beach chairs and beach umbrellas. A gas grill is also available. The grocery is close and we grilled steaks and enjoyed eating at the table in our room. The housekeeping staff do a great job keeping the place clean and fully stocked with towels. The resort is wonderful and the staff is very personable. From the first phone call to saying we'll be back, our experience at Tropic Isle Resort was outstanding! We would highly recommend.

“Wonderful experience” - Jan. 16, 2014 - Toronto, Canada
We stayed here over the Christmas break and couldn't have experienced a more wonderful place to be. The whole atmosphere of our surroundings were perfect - the beautiful well kept grounds, the room decorated nicely and with all the amenities you need, and the closeness to the gulf beaches made it perfect. I was most impressed in that they welcomed our large dog in a way to make her stay enjoyable too! Not many places allow pets and I know there were other pets but you wouldn't know it as they were as quiet as the guests! I would definitely recommend this experience to anyone! The staff were so polite and pleasant - very well customer serviced! We had a wonderful time and would definitely stay there again!

“Excellent Getaway” - Dec. 16, 2014 - Apopka, FL
Another excellent trip to our favorite part of Florida. The staff here is always pleasant, helpful & professional. The grounds are always very clean & well-maintained. We could not ask for more. Whether it is a winter-holiday break (as this was) or a summer break spent at the beach, this is the place for us. It is a very short walk to a beautiful sunset in the evening. Traveling around the island...the cities of Bradenton Beach, Holmes Beach & Anna Maria...is so enjoyable & relaxing. And our "favorite place to stay" is the perfect location for ease of getting around to all the things we want to see & do.
We love it as we have been coming here for a number of years & will continue to do so down the road.

“All the essentials with great style” - Dec. 4, 2014 - Keene, New Hampshire
I've visited this part of FLA numerous times. Further north on Anna Maria is a bit quieter, but this property and location was excellent. The proximity to the gulf shore is essential: white sands, clear waters, relative privacy on the beach, respectful beach-goers. The 'Resort "is housed within a very tastefully renovated 2-story 60's -70's motel-like footprint. This part of the Florida key is almost wall-to-wall tacky and mostly miserable versions of buildings that began life in the same genre and time-frame. The team of designers and craftspersons who renovated and transformed this property 3 years ago should be commended. From the interior layout and furnishings and housekeeping, to the well-scaled landscaping this is is a truly inviting and relaxing environment. The key words to describe the property seem to be: meticulous attention to detail, simple but sophisticated style, in a fabulous location.
"Resort" may be a bit more than my experience warrants, and despite a couple of very minor glitches ( smoke alarm battery beeping which was fixed very promptly, broken beach chair, rusty shower curtain bar) this was a quality property and experience, which I can highly recommend to anyone who is looking for a quiet and relaxing getaway in the off-season.

“Great fall getaway!” - Oct. 24, 2014 - Indiana
My family of 5 just recently stayed at the tropic isle... Our experience couldn't have been better! Very quiet low key vacation! We stayed in the studio the first night b/c the townhouse wasn't available yet. The studio was perfect! Of course once we moved into the townhouse it just got better (for a family if 5!) the inn was clean and decorated beautifully! My favorite part of this gorgeous property - it's pet friendly!

“Charming beach get-away!” - Oct. 10, 2014 - Eden Prairie, Minnesota
My husband and I had a magical and charming get-away at the Tropic Isle Beach Resort! We enjoyed breakfast on our outdoor deck before a short walk to the beach. Our studio room was decorated in Florida beach style (just perfect!). Accommodations--cleanliness--close proximity to beach and restaurants--resort staff---all were top notch! We look forward to our next visit!

“Great getaway location with many extra charms.” - Sept. 22, 2014 - Tierra Verde, FL
Each room have its own theme of decor with a variety of room types as well. Very tasteful designed with a relaxed coastal flair. Rooms were spotless and the grounds & pool very well maintianed. Very safe to stroll to local beaches or pubs of choice. A local trolley service is also availabe at no charge. The staff were very freindly and welcome all guest with pleasing gestures.

This event included a beach wedding of freinds and poolside reception with many beautiful memories......

My wife and I live only an hour away on another beach location, However, we discovered our own little beach house getaway truly with the island breeze of comfort & hospitality.

“Great Relaxing Beach Resort” - August 31, 2014 - Verona, Wisconsin
My fiancée and I got married at sunset on the beach in Anna Marie Island. It was just the two of us, the Officiant and the photographer. Many beach resorts told us we had to choose one of their wedding packages to use their beach. All of those had expensive and larger amount of people packages. The people associated with the Tropic Isle Inn, at the Tortuga Inn, bent over backwards to accommodate us. The only drawback was that the beach was across the road. We spent most of the day at the beach playing in the surf anyway. That was really not a big deal. They have a nice sized pool and their rooms are clean and comfortable. The kitchenette afforded us to make the breakfast we wanted and ice cream drinks in the blender after dinner. We will go back!

“Very comfortable, quiet, and romantic.” - August 16, 2014 - Dundee, Florida
I loved how the beach was just across the street and you were able to take shuttles to Bridge street from tropic isle inn. What makes this place a plus is that dogs are allowed! My dog and the family enjoyed the stay and was pretty economical since there is a kitchenette and you can have all the towels you need. Customer service is very friendly and understanding.

“Awesome last minute booking!” - August 1, 2014 - Winter Springs, Florida
My husband and I had to check out of our vacation rental house on a Saturday morning, but we loved Bradenton beach so much, we didn't want to go home! We walked into the Tropic Isle office and they couldn't have been nicer when we just asked for a one night reservation! Not only did they give us 20% right off the top but since there was no one in the room the night before, they told us just to come right on over after we left our other rental on Saturday! The studio style room couldn't have been more perfect and so very clean! Beautiful, beach décor with 2 flat screen tvs with rooms leading out to the pool and right across the street from the beach! They even have quiet time hours and an after hours number to call if there were any problems!! The ONLY thing that might bother some people is that you can hear the people moving around upstairs, but at night, it didn't hinder our sleeping! A definite repeat trip is in the very near future!

“Romantic Getaway” - July 8, 2014 - Edgar, Wisconsin
We traveled to Bradenton Beach in March to visit relatives. I had been to the Island in the past, but always stayed with family. We loved the Tropic Isle Beach Resort! It was roomy, clean, and walking distance from everything we wanted. The staff was super friendly, even extending our stay by 2 days when we requested! It was so wonderful we didn't want to go home! If you don't want to walk, there's a free shuttle that goes up and down the island on a regular basis, and the Tropic Isle Beach Resort is right on that route. I would highly recommend staying here and will definitely stay here again!

“Return visit” - June 26, 2014 - Bradenton, Florida
I'm a single mother of 4 and this was our second summer trip to the Tropic Isle Beach Resort.
We stayed in the Town House this time and we just loved it! Tropic Isle is across the street from the beach and has nice restaurants and a grocery store close by...the Town House has a full kitchen so it was easy for us to cook and have snacks/drinks at our finger tips. The Town House also has a terrific view of the beach with a full deck to sunbathe on.
The staff was very friendly and helpful and there were plenty of maps and local information in the office so it's easy get comfortable with the area.

“Great Find” - June 18, 2014 - San Francisco, California
Sleepy beach towns are often unpredictable in choosing accommodations. When you have a toddler to your dynamic, it becomes an even bigger challenge, but the Tropic Isle Inn did not disappoint. 
The service and facilities were outstanding for the value. They take great care of you as a guest (a notion lost by many bigger hotel chains). Rooms were clean, comfortable and well provisioned. The landscaping and pool/gazebo area were articulately maintained, making an otherwise busy area appear recluse. They offer grills, beach gear (chairs, towels, toys, etc.) and parking is a breeze. Easy beach access, free trolly, nearby restaurants & bars (great seafood, btw), grocery & drug stores, bike & beach shops.

Wonderful experience all-in-all and i'd highly recommend to anyone looking to truly get away without losing access to the essentials.

“Great location” - June 17, 2014 - Clifton, NJ
Spent two wonderful weeks next to the pool, across the street from the beach. The one bedroom was comfortable, clean, modern. Beach towels, chairs and umbrellas were available and plentiful. BBQ grills available. There is a lovely gazebo where I entertained Florida friends for a day and they all liked it. I reserved a two bedroom for next year, wish I could stay for a month! 

“Close to the beach!” - April 25, 2014 - New York, NY
We rented a room on the 2nd level of this hotel overlooking the pool and were part of a wedding party. The office staff and cleaning crew were friendly and professional. The room was tidy and decent size, which was great considering the price we paid during Easter weekend. 

The room's kitchenette included a full size refrigerator, sink, stove, pots/pans and utensils. The bathroom was clean and adequate. The bed was pretty comfortable. Right outside our room was a terrace area with patio table and chair, not private but pleasant for outside chilling. The lounge chairs and gazebo by the pool were nice. 

The best part about this hotel is its proximity to the beach! It's literally a 100 steps from the wide open public beach. The only catch and warning I have to give is be very cautious crossing the street to the beach because the hotel is located at a blind corner and it is better to walk further up the road before crossing at the straight part.

“Awesome Relax” - April 15, 2014
This was our first time on the Island. We stayed in this cozy Inn, very nice, clean, well maintained, landscaped, quiet, relaxing. Exactly what we needed with our busy lives. They don't have breakfast but we didn't mind at all because we like to go out to experience local places. We had early check in at 11 am with no problem at all. Thank you for making our stay so plesant! 

“Terrific Experience” - March 26, 2014 - Jackson, New Jersey
It was our first stay at Tropic Isle and we enjoyed it immensely. Accommodations were very comfortable, clean and warm. Located across the street from the beach, with many bars and restaurants close by, it was very convenient. We would definitely go back. Nice area, nice attentive and helpful staff.

“Great place for a quiet getaway!” - March 25, 2014 - Media, Pennsylvania
I've stayed at the Tropic Isle Inn 2 times now. Each time was a very nice experience. It feels very homie inside and out. It's very clean which is very important to me. Staff was nice and attentive. It's a good location right in between some good restaurants and bars. Also it's RIGHT across the street from the beach my favorite part!

“A Pleasant Surprise!” - March 2, 2014 - Portland, OR
Loved this adorable Inn. The staff was very kind and helpful. Our room was perfect..mattress a bit hard but better than too soft. Across the street from the beach. A little scary to cross the road as it's right on a blind corner. Add a big mirror, maybe? The pool was lovely and enjoyable. You really can't go wrong with this picturesque place. They even let your doggies stay! Included is beach chairs and towels. I would absolutely return!

“Wonderful Experience” - February 22, 2014 - Fayetteville, New York
It was our first time staying and it was a great decision. My sisters and I shared a townhouse which was steps from the pool and just across the road from the water. We came to celebrate our brother's 60th Birthday and were able to enjoy his company, his wife's and all of us both in the unit and by the pool. We will be back!

“Perfect getaway” - December 21, 2013 - Apopka, Florida
We have been staying at this small resort for the last few years & absolutely love it.
Each visit has been a real joy! The newly remodeled rooms are very, very nice. The property is beautifully landscaped & we like the fact that it is a smaller property with approximately 15 units. The unit we prefer gives us a great view of the beautiful sunset each night unless we feel like leisurely walking across the street to watch the sun set while strolling on the beach. We definitely plan future return trips.

“Review of Beach Resort” - December 13, 2013 - Jacksonville, Florida
For my 67th birthday my wife and I stayed at this hotel. I have always wanted to check this island out and I highly satisfied . We came down from Jacksonvile for the weekend It was our first time in awhile staying in private resort, The accommdations at this resort were excellent . We stayed in a studio bedroomit very nicely layed out. We did not eat in but they had a small kitchnette sit up and had everything you needed. The grounds were beautiful and extremely clean. I have stayed at alot of 4 and 5 star hotels but this one could compete with the best of them. From the time we checked in to the time we left the front desk agents were extremely friendly and very helpful. It was November 10 2013 when we visited this resort so it was off season but still had a fun time. They have a heated pool and I highly recommand trying it out was very warm and very relaxing.. Also treat yourself to the jet tub we did and enjoyed that too. I can not say enough about this place. It definitely has that old florida flare and will recommand anyone wanting to get away for a long or short weekend to the beach to go to Tropic Isle Beach Resort you will not be disappointed. Oh! the island was great too.

“Repeat guests!” - November 15, 2013 - Riverview, Florida
This was our 1st visit back to Tropic Isle since the new owners, AMIR, remodeled the resort. My wife and I have stayed here several times in the past 10 years. The quaint charm of the resort has been maintained, the decor and furnishings updated. The 2-story building in the back was gutted and the studio and one bedroom units rebuilt with central air, new plumbing fixtures, and furnishing including flat screen TV's. VERY NICE! For guest travelling from out of town, there is nothing you will need to enjoy the beach. The resort provides the usually beach towels, but provides umbrellas and chairs. The staff is especially friendly, with Kim (5 years) manning the office during the weekdays. The office also has a small "gift shop" that carries "last minute" needed items. If there is one issue that the owners should address is crossing the street from the resort to the beach. The resort is located on a sharp blind curve that makes the northbound traffic hidden until the vehicles are almost on top of you. This should be a concern for families with young children. A traffic mirror would solve the problem. Returning from the beach the crossing is not an issue as you can see the traffic from both directions. We will continue to make Tropic Isle our favorite getaway destination on Anna Maria Island.

“Just the best” - October 15, 2013 - Tampa, Florida
When we want a quick getaway our first thought is always the Tropic Isle on Anna Maria Island. The rooms are clean, stylish and modernized, The grounds are beautifully landscaped and the proximity to the gorgeous beach and great restaurants cannot be beat!! The staff is always kind and courteous and helpful. Old Florida at it's best, what more can you ask for?! L, Caldwell, Tampa, Florida

“Great seaside getaway"” - September 28, 2013 - St. Petersburg, Florida
We really enjoyed our stay here. Room was very nice and clean. Staff was friendly, courteous and helpful. Our room was on the 2nd floor with an ocean view. Very comfortable bed. We would definitely stay here again.

“My stay at tropic isle beach resort!” - September 2, 2013 - Riverview, Florida
This was a lovely place to stay. The staff was very friendly and took great care of us. Loved the pool and gazebo. We had a very nice room on the first floor and it was overlooking the pool, easy for the kids to go into the room to use the restroom. The only down side was crossing the road to the beach, it is on a curve and you must use extra caution,however the lady at the front desk advised us ahead of time to go a little further down to cross the street, that was great advice. Thanks, I'll be back!!!

“Love This Place” - August 28, 2013
This is our second trip to Anna Maria Island and our second stay at Tropic Isle...this is a fantastic, friendly and accommodating place for anyone to stay...everything you need is nearby and the hotel is always clean and the staff is welcoming and very helpful! We would recommend this place of you want to relax and enjoy a peaceful vacation...

“Summer Vacation” - August 20, 2013 - Bradenton, FL
As a single mom of 4, traveling can be very nerve wracking, but I really enjoyed our stay at Tropic Isle Beach Resort! 
The staff are very helpful and the accomodations are terrific! 
I had everything I needed at my fingertips and lots of helpful info/recommendations from the staff about where to go and how to get there. 
The whole area was well layed out and clean. The location is great, restaurants/grocery stores/beach , pool and shopping are all in walking or trolley range and our parking was right outside the back door. The room was just what we needed with a kitchen, bedroom, pull out sofa bed and bathroom, it had a nice porch and access into the courtyard with a pool and bar -b-que.
They had lots of local info and we'd recommend taking one of the boat tours..thx guys!

“Far Exceeded my Expectations!” - July 21, 2013 - Yokosuka, Japan
On a long strip of old Florida beach properties I thought it would be nice but a little worn. I was wrong. The room looked brand new. The whole place looked like and was so clean I felt like the first person to stay in that room! Family member that stayed elsewhere were coming to spend time with us (and the Tropic Isle's pool). They provide towels and chairs to take over to the private beach and a large ice machine is provided. This is a small place so it has a great 'Family run' feel. I especially liked the little front porch with a table and chairs outside each room overlooking the pool. It will be my first choice next time I visit Anna Maria Island!

“Perfect get away on a perfect beach” - June 28, 2013 - Gainesville, Florida
My wife and I were pleasantly surprised when we arrived at Tropic Isle for what was expected to be one of the busiest weekends of the year on Anna Maria Island. Tropic Isle is perfectly situated a few blocks away from some larger more crowded resorts, which allowed us to stay near the action, but still enjoy a quiet, secluded tropical getaway we desperately needed. The room was immaculate and recently updated. The staff was courteous and attentive without being in our face constantly. When we needed them they were there. The rest of time it felt like we owned the joint. Parking was a breeze. The first day I was a little afraid to move my car for fear of loosing my spot, but as it turned out we were able to come and go all weekend without ever struggling to find a space. The beach was of course gorgeous and strangely uncrowded. We really loved it and will definitely be headed back in the near future.

“Great home away from home” - June 28, 2013 - Bradenton, Florida
My husband and I stayed in one of their studio rooms in June 2013. The place was amazing. Everything was beautifully decorated, there was plenty of space and it had a jacuzzi tub which was relaxing. Very nice that it had a full size fridge and a 2 burner stove. The grounds are gorgeous and you really feel like you are at a resort just steps away from the beach.

“A Wonderful Mini-Vacation” - June 24, 2013 - Hawthorne, Florida
The Tropic Isle Beach Resort in Bradenton Beach was the so beautiful and peaceful. I won the vacation on the Radio, however given the opportunity I will return and stay at the Tropic Isle Beach Resort again. Our Luxuary Studio on the 2nd floor was stunning. Beautifully decorated and well accomodating. It had everything we needed and then some. Our partial view of the ocean was spectacular for the sunset. Our son and grandkids came for one of the three days my husband and I had, and they had a blast. There is a private beach there for the tenants and shells galore. The whole experience was 5+ spectacular.

“Great location, fun seaside community!!!” - April 24, 2013 - Tampa, FL
My husband and I do a one night getaway from Tampa every few months and we wanted to try something different from the Longboat Key area. The Tropic Isle was a great choice!! The service was friendly and helpful and the location was perfect!! The units have been fully renovated with super kitchens and a nice living room area and a patio outside your door. We were on .the ground floor and even had a door to our car parked right outside the bedroom. The units are also completely equipped for much longer stays. The area has great restaurants and shops nearby and a beautiful beach across the street. Really a terrific choice in every way.

“TROPIC ISLE IS AMAZING!"” - April 18, 2013 - Tampa, FL
The Tropic Isle Inn was the recommended hotel for our wedding guests the weekend of our wedding in March. The staff was great months leading up to the wedding. They were friendly and accommodating with me and my guests as they helped find accommodations for all the guests whether it was Tropic Isle or their other properties. The actual stay that weekend was great. The rooms are roomy and comfortable. The help at the desk was great. They also helped coordinate a continental breakfast the morning after our wedding poolside. Overall, they went above and beyond to make sure me and my wedding guests had everything we could ask for.

“Lovely” - April 15, 2013 - Grand Blanc, Michigan
We had a great experience with the staff at Tropic Isle. They were great with helping us choose the right room and with pre-trip questions. When we arrived several hours early and our room wasn't ready they offered to call us as soon as it was. The hotel is small enough that you can get that personal touch. The room was nice and clean. The grounds are beautiful. And it is right across the street from the beach!

“Will be back” - April 5, 2013 - Orlando, FL
I would recommend staying at the Tropic Isle Beach Resort. The efficiency style room, king size bed, was immaculate, nicely decorated and very accommodating with kitchen facilities for a longer stay. The beach was a very short walk from the resort. The reaction from my college teenage daughter when we walked into the room made me know it was a great choice. She loved the cottage feel decor and common area space provided to relax.

“Very Clean and comfortable” - April 1, 2013
We had never been to AMI before and booked this 'cold'. We were very pleased. The room was nicely designed, clean, comfortable and quiet. The grounds are beautiful and well maintained. Staff was friendly and efficient. A very enjoyable visit. We will certainly come back. If we can't stay here we would have no hesitation in booking at one of the sister properties

“AAA 5-Diamond Wannabe!” - March 17, 2013 - Indianapolis
Having stayed in several AAA 5-Diamond hotels around the country, I'm a bit of a travel snob so I was a little sad that the property isn't right on the beach but we could see it from the second story balcony of the newly remodeled King Bed Suite we rented. In a word the room was FABULOUS! It was every bit an efficiency apartment; comfortable, pretty and very relaxing. Natural sunlight comes in through east and west facing windows which makes it more special then a regular hotel room. The space is complemented with new crown molding and new granite counter tops in the kitchenette and bathroom, and has a very workable layout. The bed was very comfortable and we enjoyed keeping the room cool with a nice AC unit and two ceiling fans. The space was also immaculate! -Including the inside of the frig and microwave; everything still looks brand new. We traveled with our 6-month old son and had plenty of space to spread out and feel at home. The Tropic Isle staff helped coordinate the rental of a crib, small tub and feeding seat with a local company and they were set up in our suite when we arrived. The staff was also extremely professional and incredibly accommodating. ...There isn't any room service or a fitness center, but there are great places to eat within walking (or a short driving) distance. The Bradenton Beach area isn't as "fancy" or "pristine" as say, nearby Longboat Key. But for a family with a little one, it was the casual feel we needed. -The heated, baby-friendly pool was appreciated too! Finally, if you are looking for a little "fancy" then Longboat Key, St. Armands Circle and Sarasota are very close by and the drive to each destination from Tropic Isle is stunning with water views the entire way. ...Enjoy your trip!

“Winter Warmup” - March 6, 2013 - Lake Ozark, Missouri
This was our first time on Anna Maria Island, what a surprise. The Tropic Isle Beach Resort was everything it said it was and more. We stayed in room No. 2, it was spacious and newly decorated in nice flordia colors. Upon checking in the staff was very friendly and helpful showing us on the complimentary map of places to eat and shop. The heated pool was right outside our door or in 2 minutes you could be sitting in the white sand of the gulf if you prefer.The complex was landscaped wonderfully and parking was close. The trolly stop was just a short walk away and takes you from one end of the island to the other, we hardly drove in the 8 days we stayed there. We will come back next year.

“Cozy little Florida resort” - March 4, 2013 - Harbor Springs, Michigan
The Tropic Isle is a quiet little hotel/condo which has been redecorated in very upscale Florida fashion. Our small one bedroom unit was perfect for me and my husband for our 9 day stay. The pool was just the right temperature with plenty of beach chairs. The location could not have been better unless it was directly on the beach instead of across but then the price would have been much more as well. Just a block from the trolley and within walking distance to plenty of restaurants and bars. The nice BBQ/gazebo was a great place to cook if you didn't want to go out. Bradenton Beach was lively and just a hop across the bridge to Sarasota or Long Boat key. I hopefully will be returning to the Tropic Isle Resort!

“Surprise and delight” - March 4, 2013
We hadn't planned on staying at the TIBR, but I messed up my reservation at the Tortuga resort nearby, owned by the same management. Luckily, it was cold when we arrived so many visitors didn't show for their peak season reservations and the Tortuga inn sent us here. 
From the outside it looks like the accommodations could go either way, but the renovations of this "old Florida" hotel are simply wonderful. Tasteful, über clean and comfortable. The walls are still thin (they apparently didn't have them further insulated), but the noise policy minimizes undue disturbances.
The location is iffy only bc to cross the main road to reach the beach, a curve in the road at the closest crossing point is precarious. Walk 50 feet north and you'll be fine, although my traveling companion noted she would not want to cross here with her three children in tow.
I would readily stay here again.

“First experience at Tropic Isle” - February 25, 2013 - Auburn, In

It has the anemities for all and the beach is just across the road......
A great place!!!

“Relaxing weekend” - January 20, 2013 - Tampa, FL
Myself and my two business partners scheduled a "planning weekend" at the Tropical Isle Beach Resort. We stayed in the 2 bedroom/1 bath room near the pool. We were very happy with the resort, friendliness of the staff and cleanliness of the rooms. The rooms appear to have been recently remodeled. The rooms were spacious, the kitchen adequately supplied with dishes, pans, etc.. We really enjoyed the atmosphere and the gazebo area near the pool where we held our meetings. The resort offers a heated pool with all the amenities you need - towels, chairs/umbrellas for the beach, etc.. We were very happy with our choice of Tropic Isle Beach Resort and would definitely come back for future planning weekends or family vacations.

“Trip to Anna Maria Dec. 21st - 23rd 2012” - January 7, 2013 - Tampa, Florida
We've been to Anna Maria Island many times but this was our first time staying at the Tropic Isle Beach Resort. It was everything we hoped for and more. Very clean and cozy. It was too cool to swim (even though the pool is heated) but looked very inviting. We especially like it also because it is pet friendly so our little dog "Scooter" can join us on vacation! It is also very convenient to all the places we like to frequent when we are there. We will definately be back!

“First visit to the "Isle” - November 15, 2012 - Bath, NY
My wife and I recently attended a wedding and spent a few days at the Tropic Isle Inn. What a treat. The staff were outstanding, the rooms were perfect and the weather spectacular. We will return again to the area and will choose this facility again.

“A piece of Paradise” - November 4, 2012 - Eagleville, Pennsylvania
My husband and I were celebrating our anniversary and planned to take a trip to Anna Maria Island. We didn't realize that it was the same week as springbreak and had trouble finding a hotel/ B&B. We called and we'r lucky to speak to a woman who told us about the Tropic Isle which was due to open that very month. We booked without seeing pictures and crossed our fingers that it would be nice. It was beautiful. We had a fabulous view of the beach and our newly renovated room was bright, cozy, comfortable and very clean. The pool was very inviting. The hotel overall was great. We will be going back again next March.

“Another wonderful stay!” - September 25, 2012 - Winter Haven, Florida
My husband and I decided to spend our honeymoon at the Tropic Isle Beach Resort. We had stayed there in May and had such a great time, we booked our honeymoon there. We had a wonderful time there and look forward to returning again soon. It was absolutely delightful and we highly recommend this resort to anyone wanting to get away and enjoy their time in a relaxing and lovely atmosphere!

“more than” - August 26, 2012 - Cotuit,Ma

“Anniversary Get-Away Week-end” - July 23, 2012 - Plant City, Florida
This will be our third stay at the Tropic Isle Inn. It had been a couple of years since our last stay and we were so surprised to see all of the upgrades!! Our room was perfect and so nicely decorated with everything we needed. So close to the beach and great restaurants. We brought our little dog with us this time and found the inn to be very pet friendly. Special thank you to Kathy and Stacey for all of your help. Don't miss out on a great place to stay. You will love it!

“Wonderful resort” - June 23, 2012 -Fairlee, Vermont
We just returned from a three night stay here and we cannot say enough good things about Tropic Isle Inn. The room was beautiful. We were across the street from the beach. The pool was enjoyed a lot. We highly recommend this place and we will return soon.

“Absolutely amazing stay!” - May 30, 2012 -Winter Haven, Florida
Just a few weeks ago, I went back to the Tropic Isle Inn after going there last August. I enjoyed my stay last year, so I thought why not go back again this year? Well to my surprise, they had totally re-done the Inn and it was absolutely gorgeous! The room was super clean with every amenity one could imagine. There was a kitchenette with everything you needed to make yourself feel right at home. The decor was adorable - absolutely welcoming to the beach and once again - so clean! The bathroom was my favorite. It was bright - spacious - and I absolutely loved it! Our stay there was incredible - the staff was super friendly and everything about our stay there was wonderful. We will definitely be going back! Don't hesitate - book your stay at Tropic Isle Inn now!

“Great resort, great location” - May 29, 2012 - Chicago, Illinois
We originally came here in 2011 for my brother's wedding. After my parents revisted the hotel in March 2012, my husband and I decided to book a long weekend. The remodeled rooms were great. Everything was clean and we loved the layout of the new rooms. You could not ask for a better location. You are right across from the beach and you can easily walk to some of the shops/restaurants or it is a quick drive to the grocery store or Sarasota. We are looking forward to coming back again.

“Goodtime by all... ” - May 29, 2012 - West Palm Beach, Florida
We spent 4 days at the tropic island inn last week and extended my stay as we enjoyed so much and did not want to leave. The unit was beautiful, clean and had everything you can think of. The staff was friendly and really cared about the property as it's extremely maintained. I will be back again as it's centrally located to anna Maria's pine avenue and 15 minute drive to Sarasota st armands circle. Tropic Island Inn is a little touch of paradise and we plan on visiting so much more.

“Tropic isle was perfect!” - May 12, 2012 - Atlanta, Georgia
We have stayed at Tropic Isle for the last 10years and this was the best vacation ever!!! The rooms have been beautifully updated. The landscaping is breathtaking. The staff is friendly and helpful, But most importantly it is family friendly and quiet!! We brought our 2 yo granddaughter with us and she loved the pool and the beach. Yet as adults we also loved the pool and the beach and sitting outside enjoying a glass of wine. I am almost reluctant to tell others about Tropic Isle, I would rather keep it our special place, When you stay there you will feel the same way!!
Room Tip: every type of room has been updated and are terrific.

“A very good place to stay” - April 13, 2012 - Des Moines, Iowa
The Tropic Isle Inn was the perfect place for my wife and I to stay on a recent 3 night getaway from the kids. The 1BR room we chose (room #1) was kept very clean, had a nice kitchenette (with a refrigerator, microwave, toaster oven, sink, servingware and plenty of kitchen utensils in the cupboards). The bathroom wasn't huge, but was plenty big enough and clean. The bedroom furniture was white wicker, the bed was clean and comfortable and the window air conditioner and two ceiling fans did a good job of moving the air. There were 2 flat screen televisions - one in the bedroom and one on the wall of the common room. We were right outside the pool, which was also clean and pleasant. They offered free beach chairs, umbrellas and a few toys to take to the beach. The beach is just across the street, although we chose to go to a bigger area about a mile north. Restaurants are in the area and they are nice. There's also a Publix grocery store, Walgreens and CVS within a mile, in addition to a liquor store and a couple of gas stations. A free island shuttle runs up and down the island, although we chose to use our rental car. Parking is right outside the back door of our condo. It was a very good stay!

“Fresh, New and Amazing!” - March 15, 2012 - Bradenton, Florida
My 3 sisters and I had the pleasure of being the very first guests to enjoy room #12 at Tropic Isle Inn. We stayed for 11 wonderful nights, and we all had a perfect vacation! This resort has just re-opened and had a complete renovation, everything was fresh and new. Crisp, clean, and just plain lovely... we could even see the gulf and it's glorious sunsets right from our balcony! Tons of "ahhhh" moments!

We loved the fact that we could take the free trolley up to a nice grocery store and get all the goodies we needed for making meals so we could spend most of our time at the resort, swimming in the warm crystal clean pool, lounging or walking on the beach collecting shells. We seen dolphins almost every morning too! The private beach is directly across the road and very quite.

The staff was very accommodating and genuinely friendly, which was a very welcoming touch. We met the owner, David Teitelbaum, as he made his rounds to over-see that everything was running smoothly and making sure we were all having a great time. He also owns 3 other neighboring resorts, but always took the time to chat with us. He suggested that we try out the new french Le Petit cafe at his other resort, Tortuga. We made the fresh croissants a morning must each day - and had take out crepes for lunch that were exceptional.

We will definitely be back again next year for our annual sister vacation... it doesn't get any better than this!
