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

The resort offers a small beach area with very comfortable beach lounge chairs. We spent almost every evening we were there watching the most lovely sunsets! The two bedroom units have 2 baths and a wonderful, updated, modern kitchen. I enjoyed cooking there.

Two bedroom apartment gave plenty of space for our family of four. The location on the beach was out of this world - we found wildlife in abundance with long walks on the beach and lots of seahells which we enjoyed collecting. Would definately recommend Gulf Tides as the perfect getaway, there is as much or as little to do... More

My parents spend two weeks a year here in a time share. I wasn't aware that you could actually rent a place outright but that appears to be the case. At any rate, I used one of their weeks recently for an annual fishing trip to Longboat Key. Gulf Tides proved to be a very nice place to lodge. I... More

This is a perfect resort for a single, couple or family. I purchased a week sight unseen and couldn't believe how it acceded my expectations. The staff is friendly and helpful. The resort offers free tennis courts, bikes, pool, gas grills and the beach is fabulous. The resort is well maintained. All you need is your swimsuit. Perfect place to... More

Great resort love the area, free bicycles, free beach chairs and umbrellas. I travel a lot and this is the only resort I don't want to leave. The staff is wonderful. I like this resort so much that I purchased two weeks after my second visit. Oh did I mention the sandy beach, beautiful blue-green ocean, wonderful shells, great sunsets,... More

When my wife and I booked this resort, I did not expect much. Boy, I was wrong. This is a great laid back beach resort. It is not fancy, no valet service or lobby shop but it is 100 feet from the beach. Suggest you get a room on the Gulf side. The beach is great, beautiful sand and water.... More
