Tropico Wiki

For buildings of the same name in other Tropico games, see Beach Villa.

Beach Villas are the best Wealthy Accommodation with twice the guests as Bungalows. Good investment if you have the Beach-front.


Auto 100% occupancy: "Adjust the fee automatically for 100% occupancy."
Auto 50% occupancy: "Adjust the fee automatically for 50% occupancy."
Manual fee: "Adjust the fee manually."


Must have an employee for a guest to 'check-in'. Loss of employee or pregnancy may cause 0 for worker skill. Service Quality=75~125 for beauty under Villa, plus 0~40 for employee skill.

Avatar visit bonus effect only effects new arrivals while the 'Sun disk' is active. Whatever Fee rate tourist pays is locked in upon arrival, so changes won't effect current guests. This can make tracking individual tourist cash flow near impossible with 'auto occupancy' modes.

@ 100% mode:
Guest fees for the vacation time is 1 year(12 months+travel time to Lodging). 4~5 times Spending Limit, 5 requiring high Beauty and/or good worker skill level. Multiplier is dependant mostly on Beauty under Villa. Once their stay time expires they no longer pay rent, but will occupy the slot until they can 'check-out'. Due to their quirky Garage use behavior it may take up to a year to check-out. Higher Fees can be acheived with 50% mode. Manual mode is an option; Fee based on Spending Limits(0-50), tends to be less profitable and/or more hastling.

Trash, being cast off from nearby buildings, and trash-cans may appear.

In-Game Text


"Super models and financial hotshots often rent these luxurious beach villas as the perfect spot for some good old fashioned debauchery and excessive partying."


"A luxurious villa on the beach for wealthy tourists."


Beach-front that has mediocre Beauty needs small Gardens on the sides to compensate; maximizing the Service Quality. No polluters allowed near it as it will lower Service Quality via an Enviromental effect. A Garbage Dump seems OK if far enough away; while providing trash collection services to Attractions and Villa. Manual mode settings to insure Middle-class to Wealthy patronage only. Don't want cheapskates using it; which is likely if far from the Tourist Ports.
