Everything on our vacation was perfect. Room was very clean and well taken care of. (Garbage disposal did not work but no big deal). Very spacious rooms, nice bathrooms with hot showers. Awesome location. The a/c even worked great. Amazing view from private balcony. It was also fair value for peak season. However.. The only thing that did not meet... More

PROPERTY’S FAVORITE REVIEW
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2016

We stayed in unit 2516 and it was perfect! The condo had everything we needed for a relaxing vacation. While check-in time was 4:00 we arrived around 2:00. While the condo was not quite ready we were offer a place to change into our suits and enjoy the beach and amenities of the resort which was wonderful. The front desk... More

This was our 6th year staying at Tidewater and plan on a 7th year trip. Yes the elevators can be frustrating but it is a busy time of year and the complex was never designed for the demand. We have learned to avoid the issue by staying in the same unit every year that is on a floor low enough... More

This was the worst experience I have ever had on vacation. We travel 2-3 times a year to the beach. The check in process was a hassle. I reserved the condo for 10 people and it held 12, I didn't think it would make a difference and 2 more people came with us. When we arrived the manager told us... More

Nice condo spacious, linens were provided, pools were clean and nice. However the elevators were VERY slow and overly crowded. Checking in was hectic! Then when we finally made it to the beach we were told the chairs were rentals and cost $40/day on top of the high cost we shelled out for condo & extra $25 for wristbands and... More

Tradition calls for an annual family vacation, but becomes more difficult as the kids are now graduate school age. So while visiting our youngest at FSU, we decided to book a 3 bedroom/bath condo unit through an owner and make a long weekend of it at this beautiful gulf beach. Family friendly first comes to mind with plenty of amenties... More

Beautiful condo #408 with everything we needed to accommodate all 8 of us. The chair guy on the beach was a bit obnoxious when he came to tell us we had to take our canopy down after it had been there almost the whole day AND I had asked management if it was allowed before bringing it. The elevators were... More

The owner is not very attentive to this place. First of all, there was only 2 bowls and 6 HUGE spoons so we obviously had to go to wal-mart for dishes. No dish towels either. The refrigerator did not keep things cold enough because we bought ground beef on Sunday and by Monday it was completely brown and starting to... More

I can say my trip was great! The resort was nice! The 4th of July weekend was overcrowded but that is to be expected. They really need more elevators. Sometimes we would push the elevator button and then get dressed and sometimes the elevator still would not be there yet... We were on the 5th floor though so we walked... More

I read the reviews before I booked, but took my chances. The reviews were right - the elevators were HORRIBLE! 30 floors of condos with slow elevators in Florida heat was no fun! We stayed in 1906, which was an updated and clean unit with ocean balcony, so we needed the elevators every time we went anywhere. There were times... More
