My husband and I took our first trip to AC last September and stayed at Tropica Beach Resort. . .needless to say, we are now smitten with Belize and are returning again in just 4 weeks! (Sorry to rub it in!) We decided to stay at Tropica again this year, even requesting the same room! It was just our speed!
It has a great stretch of beach and very comfy padded beach lounges are provided. They have their own dive shop which will arrange sea/land excursions for you and the staff was very friendly and courteous. We ate at their restaurant, The Seagrill, 2 nights and had several great breakfasts there also. The rooms are very comfortable. Not luxurious by any means, but clean and simple (how often are you in the room anyway, right?)
We truly have only the best feelings toward Tropica. We were trapped there 3 extra nights during Sept. 11 last year and they were very kind in giving us a greatly reduced room rate.
We highly recommend Tropica to anyone looking for a place to kick back and who enjoys a more simple, island style hotel. I hope we helped you out! Enjoy your trip whatever you decide to do!
P.S. Oh, the pool and poolside bar are pretty awesome too!
