“Big fan of Hollywood Beach and this hotel now!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2012

Had never been to Hollywood Beach before my recent trip (early February), but am a huge fan now, and loved staying at the Riptide! The property is situated right in the middle of everything going on on the Broadwalk, which it sits directly on. The ocean water is probably 40 feet from the property line. We had 5 people staying in a larger room, which had two queen-sized beds, a pull-out couch bed, and still room for a table and chairs, plus a kitchen and bathroom. (We were told the room would sleep 6, but that probably would have been a stretch.) Windows from our room looked directly out at the water. We had a great view by day and a wonderful breeze through the room at night. Staff was wonderful - Laverne in the office, Loretta at the tiki bar, and everyone else. We had several fun happy hours at the tiki bar. Plenty of other bars line up and down the beach. I would definitely stay at the Riptide again in future trips!

Room Tip: Room 27 was very spacious, but though we were told it sleeps 6, 5 adults is probably the limit for t...

My husband and I have stayed here before, this trip was better than the last -minus the crummy weather. The rooms have had updating that was badly needed, the bathrooms are redone and so are the kitchenettes. On our previous visit they were run down and dirty. The new managers are very nice and very friendly. The hotel is as close to the beach as you can get, how incredible to open your front door and walk across the sand to the beach, you can't beat it! There are still bikes, beach chairs, towels, movies etc to use at your leisure. Yes, you have to ask someone to sign them out but who cares! We rode the bikes on the broadwalk and visited some at the bar. The music stopped early and we were able to get a great night's sleep. This was our mini-vacation after a return from Europe and 5 of the best days of our trip. We will ALWAYS come back to the Riptide!

The beach is beautiful. The hotel is right on the water and the hotel has a wonderful Tiki Bar right on the beach. It was one of the most memorable experiences.
I highly recommend it.
We will stay again

I guess we should be thankful for finding an available room without a booking. That said we found out why there was availability after our stay. If you are looking for a place to party in a great location you found your place. If you are traveling with children, keep driving. There are well known brands for around the same price close by.

Room Tip: Look at the room before you rent.
