I'll start with when we leave.....most every time I shed a few tears because we're leaving! We have been coming to Gulf Tides for almost 20 yrs! We've seen the great updating and improvements over the years and the continued new additions like the wonderful kitchen and new household items. We love having a beach that's private with none of...

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

What a wonderful little gem in paradise! We have always gone to bigger resorts, but there is no comparison to the comfortable feeling at Gulf Tides. The staff is excellent and extremely friendly. The units are impeccably clean and up to date. The pool, tennis court and grounds were immaculate. Loved the idea that if you needed something extra like... More

Outstanding location, beautiful beach. Staff very accommodating and most helpful. The Staff put on a nice cookout one day and did a wonderful job. Good time to meet some of the other guests and enjoy the surroundings. Would choose this well kept place again if we return to Florida.
