I'll start off by saying the view and the unit we are in are amazing. Very clean and updated. Unit 2000 on the 20th floor. However, we have spent most of our time here waiting on elevators. 20 minute waits. Just awful. The beach property is so packed with Tidewater chairs that we had no where to set up our... 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

We visited Tidewater in July. All reviews with regard to slow elevators are correct they are extremely SLOW! Make sure you book a condo on a low floor...we had to take the stairs several times throughout the week. We were on the 7th floor in 705....which by the way is 5 star. No complaints about 705! It was clean and... More

If you want to spend a relaxing day on the beaches here, you need to stay somewhere else. The beaches are very overcrowded. Rows and rows of chairs with people stacked on top of each other. I sat next to a lady who smoked and that was no fun for me (a non-smoker). The beach was covered in cigarette butts... More

We stayed 7 nights at Tidewater on 14th floor June 25 thru July 2. The apartment was comfortable and clean with a beautiful view. However getting to and from room was a hike and a challenge. The parking garage has an enclosed air conditioned walkway to the hotel. The wait for an elevator was very lengthy. There is no ventilation... More

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

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
