The apartment has a nice kitchen, 2 bathrooms, a balcony and a nice gulf view. It is only a half mile to the post office, library, grocery and drug store. Nice added touch is the Monday morning continental breakfast and Wednesday noon lunch. God time to mingle and eat. Buss stops out front and goes to the other islands for...

We stayed in 2 br/2 bath unit 208, across the road from the beach; which provides a partial view of the beach from the balcony. Unit was clean, comfortable with all necessary amenities provided. Living area was somewhat small for a family of 4, but bedrooms were good size. We were fortunate to have great weather the whole week, and...

We stayed in a 2 bedroom unit on the bay for 6 nights. The bedrooms are small and the second bedroom window looked out at the elevator so we had to keep the blind shut for privacy.( unit 208). All rooms small, couch in the living room needed replacing. No back support. Had to rotate the king mattress because it...

My wife and I booked a gulf side studio here for two weeks, never having taken a holiday on Longboat Key before. Absolutely nothing disappointed us, from the ability to step straight out of our unit onto the sands of Longboat Key, the simple but comfortable amenities of the studio itself, the overall facilities offered by the resort (beach chairs,...

Gulf Tides has become a family tradition. We visit every August, and having just purchased a week in October, we will be visiting twice a year now. The resort features a quiet beach, well maintained grounds and well-appointed, clean units. The staff is very friendly and helpful. For our recent visit we stayed in studio unit 201. The studio is...

Have stayed at Gulf Tides many times - small resort with a lovely beach. Great place for families (we had three generations with us this time) - plenty of room for sand activities, sunsets are perfect, pool is clean and there is easy drive to nearby restaurants and activities. Free trolley service up and down the coast so that older...

We had to cancel our room only 4 days after making our reservation. We cancelled well before the 60 day cancellation policy but were still charged $95.00 to process the cancellation. I called the Manager/Owner, Brian Chamberlain at the corporate office and left him a voicemail expressing my concern about this charge but he didn't have the decency to return...

Just returned today from a stay at Gulf Tides. On arrival our plane landed early but we were told the room was being cleaned and we could not check in early. I don't believe that was true. After opening the door the oder that greeted us was like mildew or lack of use. I had to get air freshener from...

Thank you so much for your review. Our check-in time is 4pm and we always try our best to get the units ready as early as possible. We are in the process of taking out all of our carpeting and replacing it with tile on the Bay side – we have completed all the beach side buildings. I am so...

We have stayed at gulf tides a number of times in the beachfront accommodation. The location is great with the beach being mostly quiet with plenty of loungers. The property is well maintained by the excellent team there and they're always friendly and helpful. We look forward to our next visit.
