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.

This was our first experience at the Gulf Tides resort on the beautiful Gulf of Mexico and the 5th year stay on Longboat Key. All other experiences were elsewhere on the Key but in our opinion rating the Gulf Tides as our "best" experience and first choice should we return again. We were very pleased with the cleanliness of the... More

The beach is beautiful & quiet, nice birds & soft sand, Units are nicely kept and with nice furnishings, full kitchen and laundry. Staff always very pleasant and there when you need them. Love to look out the window and see the water. My favorite time is taking morning coffee out to the lounge chair and watching the soft waves.... More

I've been visiting Gulf Tides of Longboat Key for 15 years now. I've come to know the area well, and really can't think of a better place to enjoy the Gulf of Mexico off the coast of Sarasota. This is not a mega resort, but a cozy, low key location which provides easy access to some beautiful and uncrowded Gulf... More

Gulf Tides on Long Boat Key was a wonderful place to spend a week. It was in a great location on the island and the amenities it offered were perfect and covered everything we could want. The condo was well supplied with everything, outdoor offerings were great - beautiful private beach with plenty of lounge chairs, shuffleboard, tennis court, pool,... More

The facilities and staff were excellent. We enjoyed the entire time here and the Sunsets were spectacular. The staff was always available for information. We were there for 3 weeks and thoroughly enjoyed the resort and the area had many attractions like a flee market nearby. Also found a good restaurant on Ann Marie Island (North of Longboat Key). Also... More

We spent the week of Feb 1st to 8th, 2014 and were taken by the beauty and natural wonder of this area. Our studio condo over looked the Gulf approx. 150 ft from the water. The beach was clean and the beach lounges provides for a relaxing atmosphere to kick back and enjoy. The condo is well maintained and well... More

Just spent a very relaxing week at this resort and enjoyed it immensely. The resort personnel were very helpful and friendly. The resort is located right on the beach and is well maintained. It is convenient to many restaurants and tourist sites and all in all was pretty close to perfect in all respects. Will come back !!

We spent a week there. The beach is perfect and while we were there (last week of August) there was not many others on the beach. You have huge beach acreage to yourself. The rooms were large, well furnished, pretty modern and the staff was very nice. Free washer/dryer was nice (but not in the room). Elevators made it very... More

I recently accompanied my mother-in-law for the second time to her studio timeshare at Gulf Tides Resort on Longboat Key. This tidy, attractive, clean apartment is located just steps from the beach (literally outside the front door) and what a beach it is! Pristine and virtually empty this time of year. I would get up early in the morning and... More
