Pretty laid back place, just located in the right spot, at the end of the hotels and such like that are lined up opposite along the beach. The hammocks out the front are a magnet for all and sundry, who use the time on them to chill and float into Fiji time, which to me was sunburn (Oh no).
The bus stop is right outside and if you score yourself a bus card you can save money take a local bus into Nadi. Easy to do and fun. If you are tired of Fiji Bitter take a walk down to the main road and hang a left and you will find a brewery, yes a brewery making their own beer. This also where the few restaurants are and a local grocery store, and ATM.
There are all sorts of people staying at the Tropic. Mum's with daughters, couples, lots of couples of different age groups, and solo me.
I enjoyed the breakfasts at the Tropic which for me was the egg on toast and on another occasion an omelette (so big).
One evening I had Kava tasting which was just me and the organizer. Very laid back. Then I was given a wing man to look after me and he took me down to a bar that was down the end of the beach where I met quite a few locals. We shared stories and then went on our separate ways.
The Tropic is one out of the books. It is not those touristy foreign owned hotels that are popping up, but rather a slice of what is truly Fijian. Wish I could have stayed longer.
