i collected this url during my research earlier this year.

If you must choose between two evils, pick the one you've never tried before.

not sure if still true, but the cruise ships were dropping their daytrippers off there 2x a week to soak up the sun & take up the beach

Tropica was packaging "sun & fun" on their beach to cruise trippers during the low season but as far as I know is not doing it during high season. It is a pretty nice place, has been through some changes recently which should make it even better. Great beach, good location, pool, good restaurant & bar. Rooms are fairly small but clean & adequate, with variety of bedding. All have balcony or verandah with good views. I've sent plenty of satisfied customers there over the years.

Barbara, when last I was there, the day trippers were tripping all over themselves at Tropica. Maybe you would like to confirm that they are no longer taking day trippers?
A fish and a bird can fall in love, but where will they build their nest?

I agree SS - same timeframe that I was there. Truly amazing to sit up on my balcony at BB and see how many people they could pack into those boats! eek

Just repeating what I heard from the owner. You know, it is being managed by Banyan Bay now and the new manager has said "no cruise trippers in the high season." That is all I know.

Confirmed by the owner of Tropica Beach that the cruise trippers end their visit to the property Dec 19 and will not be there during high season.
