Tropical Palms is that family getaway you remember from your childhood and now want to share with your children. It's flat-out Florida fun and good times, where you're close to everything and far away from the everyday.

Tropical Palms is about playing poolside: splashing around in the water with the kids, listening to live music, taking your turn at karaoke then taking your bows, marveling at magicians, and watching wide-eyed at the gator and tiger shows. It's burgers and beer and daiquiris at The Toucan Cafe. It's evenings watching dive-in movies while playing in the pool.

Dining

Toucan Cafe
At the Toucan Cafe, you can satisfy your hunger with something scrumptious in the way of an appetizer, salad, sandwich or one of the best burgers you'll ever take a bite out of. All backed by your choice of a cold beer, daiquiri, cooler, wine or soft drink. You can enjoy it all beside the pool, so you don't have to miss a minute of the nearly non-stop fun and games. We haven't forgotten the kids. Even the pickiest eater among them will find something they like from among the four different meals.
Family Dining
If you are looking for a casual dining atmosphere, you can try Golden Corral, Cracker Barrel, Logan's Roadhouse, Smokey Bones BBQ and Grill, Tex-Mex Express or Longhorn Steakhouse. There are other chain restaurants nearby like Chili's Bar and Grill, Earl of Sandwich or Red Lobster. For pizza, there is Flippers Pizzeria and Uno Chicago Grill. If you would like pub-style dining, try Celebration Town Tavern, Kool Katz Grill & Pub or Raglan Road Irish Pub.
Specialty Dining
If you are looking for an ethnic restaurant, you don't have to look very far. Columbia Restaurant, Bongos Cuban Cafe and Bahama Breeze are worth the visit. For Italian, there is Macaroni Grill and Olive Garden. For Japanese food, there is Kobe's Japanese Steak House, Seito Japanese Restaurant and Benihana. If you want something fancy, try Fulton's Crab House or Charley's Steak House. Last, but not least, get a little show with your meal at Arabian Nights Dinner Show or Rainforest Cafe

Not happy with our stay

We were infested with ants, the key didn't work and we got locked out, the furniture was old and worn out the cushions were torn up and looked like a dog chewed them up, there was a large hole in bedroom door, the knob on the bath tub didn't work right.

I was Chastised by front desk for booking through this travel website

At first we were greeted with a friendly staff. But when we arrived in our cottage and found the inside temperature was at 82 degrees and the thermostat was set at 74 degrees, we went back to the front desk and complained that the a/c was not working properly. And we also asked if we could upgrade to a bigger model because we needed a 3 bedroom if possible. We were told that we could, but because we booked through this website and didn't pay full price for the unit that we received, that the only thing they could do is charge us the full current rate and we would have to get a refund through this website. Which I found pointless because we were there on check-in day the travel website would not be able to give me my money back. So we went back to the unit that we were given and waited for their maintenance crew to look at the a/c problem. When they arrived, they checked the a/c filter and told us that the unit we were in was one of the coldest units that they have. They explained that the upper (useless) windows draw in a lot of heat from the sun and makes it difficult for the units to cool down during the day. So after they replaced the filter and left, we proceeded to place cardboard in all of the upper (useless) windows and continued our stay with all of the blinds drawn on all of the windows and sliding glass door. This seemed to help a little. Internet service needed great improvement. I stayed for a whole week and was not able to get a connection to their internet service. This was a major inconvenience due to inability to research local information on the parks and area recreation as to hours of operation, ticket prices, and directions. In their welcome packet it explains that metal roofs and high traffic can interfere with their internet signal. So guess what our unit had! I decided I would wait until morning because I'm an early riser. I went out on my front porch at 5am and was still was unable to obtain a connection. I didn't even bother to complain about the stopped up drain in the shower, nor the stripped out cold water handle in the shower. Also their welcome packet contained a lot of information as to their daily calendar of events, but the ice cream social they advertised did not include a time schedule. I called the front desk to ask what time the social was taking place and the gentleman proceeded to tell me what the current time was. I told him that I was trying to find out how long the social was going to take place so he had to put me on hold to find out. When he came back he told me from 2 to 4pm. I went to the pool area at 3pm and was told that the ice cream social ended at 2:30pm so I had already missed it. Overall the place has a lot of potential (miniature golf course, shuffleboard, rv parking, pool, large coin laundry room, an array of activities, good location, etc.) but the staff really needs to be more informative and courteous. I'm sure this travel website generates a lot of business for them and to chastise patrons for booking through this travel website, I don't think is very beneficial for their business. If they don't want to do business through this travel website, then maybe they should not take bookings from them. All in all, we made the best of the situation and had an average stay but most likely will not return. If you are planning a visit, bring your own fan! And for the record, the unit they gave us was considered one of their prime premium 4 star units which was built in 2013 so it was not a cheapie model.

Great Family location

The cottages are not fancy but very comfortable. We had a small but full kitchen. A nice little living room with a pull out couch. The location provides sporting equipment and would be great for an extended stay with the kids.We did not have our kids this time but will definitely stay here with them. They have a little store on site for your needs and you could vacation there and enjoy a relaxing time or go to the local theme parks. We will definitely visit again!

Trailers - Plain and Simple

I really wanted this to be much more. I was expecting to go to a cottage and what I found was a fancy trailer. The staff were very nice, however if you don't get there before 11 PM you could forget about getting a room because the front desk closes at that time. Once entering the cottage we saw that there was a loft - at the loft there was only about 10 inches in width to get up there, once up there we saw two mattresses unfortunately the floor to ceiling clearance was approximately 2 feet. We opened the sleeper sofa to find that the sleeper sofa had a mattress that would probably less comfortable even in a prison. The furniture inside the cottage was worn down and needs to be replaced almost immediately. The bathroom expectably, was very small the toilet was very small so those of you with larger rumps forget about getting into this toilet, the shower was fiberglass so it appeared to be clean unfortunately there was no strainer over the drain which I found to be hazardous, there was also some water damage in the ceiling of the shower as well. I did find that the linen and towels were clean. So we were unable to use the sleeper so as well as the mattresses on the loft slips over obviously because of comfort and the mattresses on the loft because we didn't want to have our heads cracked open in the middle of the night. Another issue is after 11 in the evening if you have any concerns there's nobody to call the only thing you can do is drive up to the security gate shack where you'll probably won't find help at all anyway. The air conditioning vents are on the floor so outside from the fact of having air blowing up on you, you have to be careful where you step because you maybe stepping on one of these vents. Television wise, there was one box TV about 19 inches diagonal from 1995 and that was located in the living room area since we wanted to watch television in the bedroom I had to unplug that television and move it into the bedroom and plug it into that location. Bottom line, if you want more comforts and you want to have a little bit more area as well as entertainment I suggest spending a few more dollars and going to a nice hotel.

Great Cottage Experience

I was in town for the GoodGuys car show and to see the Old Town cruise nights. The cottage had lots of room and a nice deck on the side. The grounds and pool area are very clean and the staff was very nice. I'll be back.
