My family and I have been going to Suntides for over 20 years! We go every spring break in March. We have stayed in one bedroom and two bedroom units. The units are just what we need for a week getaway. The kitchen is fully stocked, the bathrooms have recently been re-done, and the beds are comfy! The condos are... More

An absolutely fantastic place, ideal location, the beach on your doorstep, all amenities with in walking distance (bar the supermarket which is a good drive away). My only complaint is the attitude of the staff and especially the woman on the reception desk with the grey bobbed hair, she just can't be bothered to speak to you, everything was an... More

We visit Suntide every year for our family vacation. We all love the location and the accommodations are very nice and clean. We are very pleased with the staff and the facility in general. The staff have been there for the 8 years we have been visiting so we see familiar faces each year. Same with the vacationers, a lot... More

Suntide is a very well maintained property right on the beach. The staff have become like old friends as they recognize us as we walk in to reception,the welcome always is warm and sincere. All of the units that we have stayed in have been clean and comfortable. Its location is perfect for all types of holiday makers.

Favorite spot for my yearly vacation. Right on the beach! Older building but clean and very well maintained! Family friendly and safe! Rooms have kitchens for snacks or cooking. Going there for 12 years. Many return customers or owners of the time share. Best location for beach and st Armand's circle. 1 mile!

Older two-story property that is very well maintained and located right on the beach amid a number of other older properties which also appear quite nice. No elevators so if you have a second floor unit, you'll have to climb the stairs. Furnishings are clean and kitchen and bathroom are spotless. Nice pool and large spat-hot tub. Gas grills available,... More

This is the third year in a row we're visiting, and we will be back again next year. Don't expect the Taj Mahal....this is a solid, well-run hotel that is budget and for families. That makes it a rare bird in the area it is in. It has old world Florida charm, and is a quiet, comfortable stay.

Good things: Rooms were spacious and clean. The kitchen was very well equipped. Bad things: REALLY poor wi-if connections. Didn't get a decent signal all week. Horribly scratchy bedding - the blankets were like burlap imbedded with cactus spines. Pillows were SO thick you wake with a stiff neck. Foam mattresses were the kind that hold heat (way too hot...
