We very much enjoy Suntide. It is right on the beach and the rooms are clean and have small equipped kitchens. Right down the street from St. Armands Circle which is great for strolling around or a nice dinner. The resort and beach are also quiet and less commercial which we prefer.

Suntide is a very well maintained self-catering resort, we have always found all the staff friendly and helpful. Location is ideal for all parties, couples of all ages and families alike. The beach is just a very short walk away, truthfully if you can not manage 30 yards should you be on any beach? This is not some flash hotel... More

Rooms are ok, not new but clean and everything works! Nice layout and comfortable bed and living room! Staff have been helpful, lots of beach chairs if you like or the pool is nice as well. The circle is only a 1 mile walk. Beach is good for walking sand is packed close to water. Not very wide from sand... More

This is a timeshare rental so don't expect "hotel" services. The rooms are clean, the property is well maintained and it is a close drive to St Armand's Circle. Nice amenities and right on the beach. You can walk to the Lido Beach Resort which has a restaurant and bar. Very relaxing area.

A little piece of paradise. Suntide is a beach resort on the Gulf of Mexico. Very relaxing, clean, well maintained and a friendly staff. Each condo is equipped with all the comforts that you will need for your stay. A short drive (or walk) to St. Armands Circle where you find enough excellent eateries that, realistically, you never have to... More

I have been a timeshare owner of this resort for more than 20 years and love it. The larger one bedrooms and two bedroom apartments are definitely more comfortable. It is an older resort and not lavish but is very clean and extremely well maintained. The furnishings are updated regularly, and the pool and spa are clean and kept comfortable... More

We come and stay 2-3 weeks in December/January every year for the past 10 years. The resort is very cozy and clean. Every year we come they have done some fantastic updates to the place. The front desk is very pleasant and accomodating with most requests. We have to change units each week, but there is always somebody on hand... More

Just recently got back from an amazing trip to florida-despite the disappointing part of the trip which was at the Suntide. Yep I, like many of you, did not want to believe the negative reviews on this site. I thought people are too critical and maybe over sensitive. I then figured with a four star rating and a quick analyzation... More

The sun tide is a great place to stay if you want something laid back, relaxed, whether you are using it as a place to retreat to or to launch from. It's close enough to the beach to walk, it's actually on the beach, but far enough away to get away from it for a little. The pool was good... More
