The hotel was very nice and accommodating with a family friendly environment. We ate at Riptides and were treated like royalty. The food was superior! Michael (the manager) and Allison (our waitress) went above and beyond to ensure we were completely satisfied. These two are definitely an asset to your establishment! Thank you!

Our mission is to always provide the very best service and product available. When we fall a little short we have the opportunity to “own” it and make it right and we always try to do that. We want every guest happy every time. Thank you for writing this review and for mentioning Michael and Allison. They are assets to... More

My family and I stayed at the resort for four nights. We were able to check in early. The front desk was very friendly, but seemed to have a lot of inexperienced employees which made everything a bit slower. The room was very nice and had a beautiful view of the gulf and the pool. That day we went to... More

I’ve already addressed the restaurant hiccups and housekeeping as well. Their intentions are all very good and realize they need improvements sometimes. We appreciate you choosing us and hope you will return for another stay with us. Warm regards, Ron Wilson, CHA General Manager More

This hotel is wonderful! The service was top notch, the rooms are well maintained, and the activities are very family friendly. I traveled for work/pleasure and brought along my grown daughter. She got to enjoy the pool and beach while I worked nearby each day. The last day we enjoyed everything together. Even though the resort is geared to entertain... More

Very nice beach hotel. The rooms aren't "beach musty smelling". The rooms and hallway are a little tired but everything is clean and fresh. Maintenance is on their game by keeping things up. Hotel staff is friendly with lots of smiles. Restaurant offers waffles and omlets prepared by friendly kitchen staff. This was a business trip for me but I... More

We spent two nights at this hotel and had a fabulous time. I am an older dad(67) and I took my 16 year old son and 12 year old daughter for a micro vacation (2 days). We had a gulf-front room about 7 floors up and the room was very nice by any standards. The room had a small fridge... More

Clean facilities, great location, great rooms, friendly staff, beautiful pool, tiki bar, good restaurant, room service, premium liquors - what is not to like? Sure there are a lot of kids, but who doesn't like seeing kids have fun at the beach? We had our own grown up fun right along side of the families. This was our second trip,... More

It's so nice when you find a hotel on the internet and it turns out to be what was advertised and then some, this hotel fits that bill. We were checked in by a very pleasant woman named, Holly.

This is an AWESOME hotel! Nice pool with a lazy river. Boardwalk to the beach. Hotel provides towels that you can use at the pool or the beach (we brought our own but supplemented with theirs).

We booked this hotel because it is on the Gulf where you can walk out to the beach and it is family-oriented. I was NOT disappointed! Because of using points and paying I had more than 1 reservation.

Your review is very nice and I appreciate your candid comments. We are always trying to make things better and sometimes we need a little reminding. Service in Riptides is a challenge during the really busy months but then again all restaurants are busy in the season. We will be working on all solutions. Warm regards, Ron Wilson, CHA General...
