“Quiet, Beautiful beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2011

Quiet location on a beautiful beach. This area of longboat has very few people on the beach, so if you wish go be away from hand gliding, jet skis, water sports in general this is the place to simply set back and relax.

Room Tip: Best rooms are those on the beach side of the resort, don't have to cross highway.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2011

My wife and I stayed at the Gulf Tides on the beach side in a one bedroom unit. It was the perfect "Beach Resort" for us. Walk out the door and you are on the beach. The unit was older but clean and well equiped. A pool is avialable across Gulf of Mexico Drive; bicycles are also avialabe without charge.

If you are looking for a "Gold Crown" resort with lots of activities this is not your place but if you want to stay on a beatiful beach in a great area we recommend Gulf Tides of Longboat Key without anhy reservation.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2011

I stayed in a 1 Bedroom condo on 1st floor (#103) July 4-9th, 2011. We were on a girl trip- 4 women. It worked out great for us. It was very clean and is right on the beach. The bedroom had its own bathroom and then the living room had 2 murphy beds that pull down with another Bathroom, Kitchen, Washer & dryer etc. It also had a couch that made into sleeper if you had 6 people but we didnt need that.
There was a "Publix" grocery store 2 blocks away so we ate breakfast and lunch at condo so we could have more beach time. Dinner we ate out. You have to go to "The Lazy Lobster", (Lobster $14.99 till 5:30 pm) "The Sandbar",-Anna Maria Island (eat with your feet in the white soft sand) "Mar Vista , " The Loading Dock' (great Lobster tacos)
The only negative we could find was Unit #3 had a big picture window that SHOULD of been a sliding glass door instead so you could sit out on a patio to drink your coffee etc. It already had an overhang. The living room was great sleeping-Dark & quiet. The Bedroom not so much. They need to put room darkening drapes to keep the sun out of your eyes and the road noise out of the bedroom. All and all was great and would definitely return.
Going in to Sarasota to shop at St Armands Circle is a Must! Great Mojitos at "Columbia" restaurant.
