We spent 2 weeks here in March and really enjoyed the area. It is right on the beach, it was not crowded and there is no commercial strip so has a very peaceful atmosphere unlike other areas such as Treasure Island further up the coast. This property is a 10 minute walk to St Armands Circle, which is a lovely... More

We are owners who come from the Pacific NW each year for a month. We always look forward to the stay seeing friends and the FRIENDLY staff. The rules all have a purpose and are not difficult to keep and they keep our maintenance fees down. It's usually the people exchanging in that don't like the rules, although that is... More

Our Vacation didn't start very well. Upon check-in, I asked if we could get an oceanview condo. I was quite surprised when the check-in clerk laughed and said, "You're on a timeshare," as if a timeshare trade was something bad. We let that remark go and went to park our car. Assigned parking, for us, was a long distance from... More

Our exchange this week at Suntide was a new experience at least for me since she owned a week at a very similar facility 3 resorts to the north and had had a lot of experience with the area for ten...

My wife and I had a great time at this resort. We were there last week of Sept. into first of Oct. Very clean unit. Small resort, very quiet which is what we were looking for. Beach is beautiful, we use the gas grills a lot and enjoy the Armands circle area. This was our 3rd visit to this resort... More

Great place for a relaxing stay!!! If you're into the beach, quiet, comfortable (not necessarily new) accommodations, with a very friendly and supportive staff ..... this is the place. Restaurants in the area (St Armands Circle) are pricey but worth it. Monday donuts and Wednesday Hot Dogs great mixing opportunity. Beds are a little hard.

I have to comment on the bad reviews that Suntide is getting. My family has stayed at Suntide since the place opened. They do have several rules but the rules that they have are for the protection and courtesy of the guests. You that complain about the rules are usually the ones that violate the rules. As far as the... More

Unfortunely on our thrid day, our unit was robbed. Someone took our cash. We did not know the unit had a safe, found it in the kitchen in a bottom cabinet No compassion, empathy or sorrow from the management. When the police arrived, they brought them in our back door, not sure why other than not to be noticed. Otherwise... More

We arrived back home on 31st August 2013 having spent a week at this resort. We had two apartments, a one bed and a two bed. Prior to our arrival we were a bit concerned about some of the poor reviews, particularly concerning overbearing management and the huge list of "do's and dont's". I have to say we wished we... More
