The resort comprises two buildings. One between the Margate beach-strip and a cul de suc road; and the other (the cabanas) opposite and the lagoon. The term 'hotel' is a misnomer. The cabanas are nicely refurbished, clean and comfortable. There is a alley next to the cabanas, with a walkway across the lagoon, leading to the Margate waterfront. Many restaurants... More

My wife an I stayed at Suntide for 4 nights over December as part of our honeymoon. It is perfectly situated with private access to the beach. The service was good and we overall enjoyed our stay. The only thing missing was an aircon in the room.

we stayed 3 nights at Suntide hotel luxury unit... We had sea views all the time day and night, perfect spot from our hilly and foresty home in Hillcrest. Everything is close by shops, garage, a back gate leading to the beach. The kids had fun in the pool and games room. I am definatetly going back again.... :-)

This "hotel" is on the beach and close to the main beach of Margate. It is very well located if you enjoy the beach and lagoon area (with peddle boats). Accommodation is standard and clean.
