Perfect Beach!! Great place to relax as the beach is never very crowded. Rooms were very clean and staff was very helpful. My kids loved to play shuffleboard while their dad grilled dinner. Bikes were an awesome amenity since it is only a half mile to Publix and CVS. You can pretty much ride them anywhere. Be sure to drive... More

If you are looking for the perfect place to relax and just enjoy the beach and the nature that comes with it this place is for you. Nothing bad to say except that if you are checking in late on a Friday you will have no beach towels until Monday so bring your own.

Many years of vacationing there, and it is our favorite place in Florida. The apartments are great, with modernized and very comfortable kitchens and baths, not to mention the comfortable living room and veranda overlooking the gulf. For beach access, you can't beat it -- you're either right on it, or just across the street (where the pool and tennis... More

For you fishermen, especially fly fishermen, this place can be very productive. Exhaust yourself in the surf catching angry ladyfish or fish the bay and passes.If the weather is bad, enjoy all the other amenities already mentioned, or get some culture in Sarasota or spend some money on your wife at ST. Armand's circle.

We have been staying at Gulf Tides for over 10 years and this place keeps getting better! The majority of our stays have been in the two bedroom units across the street from the beach, although one time we were fortunate enough to stay in the penthouse. The rooms are spacious and clean with views to the east and west.... More

This was our first stay here..we were here for our 20th anniversary. We stayed in 301, the gulf side penthouse and could not be more happy with our choice. It was very clean, roomy, and quiet. We loved sitting on the balcony, fishing off the beach and watching the sunset every evening. If you want a quiet, relaxing place to... More

We went to Gulf Tides for our children's Spring break. The resort is well kept and very clean. We stayed at a unit across the street from the beach. There is a very short walk to the private beach. They provide plenty of beach chairs, towels etc... The pool is small but very clean. The staff at the resort is... More
