Such a wonderful getaway for my husband and I. The hotel is very clean and in a great location. I'd like to recognize Lily, at the front desk; she was very knowledgeable and gave us highlights of the area. Stu, the bartender made me a specialty drink the Tides created. Finally, Amber was extremely attentive to our stay. She did everything she could to give us an amazing experience.

Tides was a great 5 star hotel with lots of amenities. They had free shuttle service all around Kennebunkport, Noah was an exceptional driver that went above and beyond to track down a missing cellphone. Great mountain bikes to ride to their sister resort Hidden Ponds. Hidden Ponds had a serenity pool and Tree Spa. The beach at Tides had chairs, loungers, paddle boards and kayaks available and ready. They had a great restaurant at Tides with live music on Friday night. Iven was our waiter and everything was great. The manager Amber made sure we had everything we needed to make our vacation perfect.

Love this lovely Inn and fabulous restaurant! Southern coast of Maine is gorgeous this time of year There was a remote feel with this Beachfront Gem We couldn’t wait to walk the beach. Even in Mid September the lounges and beach chairs were available on the beach. We even walked the sandbars and took a dip ! Although we choose a Small room with an Ocean View it was well appointed with a great view . The bathroom walk-in shower was very inviting The staff here go out of their way to be welcoming and the amenities like apples,kind bar ,candies, water ,beach towels and easy parking. To top off the fabulous restaurant and front porch we’re just over the Moon. A must mention it was our duo Birthdays and David Morgan and Lilly and the staff made us feel very special . Our second day we visited their sister resort Hidden Cove and used their beautiful pool . That evening we visited their restaurant Earth. Both of these properties really impressed us and we consider ourselves we’ll traveled foodies. We will be going back soon to try another of these properties. We heard they have 9 ! Great team work Kuddos to the owners you should be proud !

TBC has five star lodging figured out. You feel it from the moment you walk in the door to the moment your stay ends. An Inn situated in the Goose Rocks Beach Neigborhood , TBC has integrated old world architecture with high end design charm. The decor is on point, Beachy chic, rooms are fairly sized and spread out so you don’t hear your neighbors. Inn is situated across the street from the beach/ocean. The front desk team greets you with each pass of the desk willing to to help you with your stay. Rooms are cleaned daily with attention to any request you have. Breakfast pastries are dropped at the door daily . Bikes are available to ride around the neigborhood or to access amenities at the sister resort, Hidden Pond. At HP, you have access to the pool, spa, fitness classes . Recommend a hike with Jean on property. There is a shuttle available to guests to take you around KB. All around TBC is a special place with Top Notch service. Thanks to Robin, Amber, Ryan, Ivan & especially Noah for making our trip extra special. This is a must stay for anyone visiting the KB area.

This luxurious hotel is worth every penny! Right across from the pristine Goose Rocks Beach just a few miles from Dock Sqaure, The Tides Beach Club is top notch. The entire staff from Amber, Leo, Julia, Lily at the main hotel desk to Robyn in the restaurant and bar, to the entire housekeeping team, and all the attentive beachtenders (Ethan, Julia, the twins) made our 2 week vacation here a phenomenal experience.

I love the Tides Surf Club. Its a really amazing place just steps away from the beach the food is great. it allows you to go back at night and in the morning to get way more beach time. I love the ambience on the porch very fun great service. I love how they set up your chairs and tables and umbrellas on the beach it’s really nice service! Matt Nick Troy and brett were amazing and attentive to my needy family with two young kids.

Back in May, I popped in while scouting out a place to stay the summer of 2022. I drove by as a little girl and was excited to see the inside and receive more info from zLeo at the front desk. I booked my stay and extended it as well in July/August. My home away from home . I came for true R and R The rooms ARE as pictured , clean modern mix with beachy vintage. The staff..from the first time I stopped in to inquiry thru my entire stay. EVERYONE at guest services, housekeeping was accommodating, warm, friendly and professional. The food and bar and service is commendable. All the staff pushed through very busy times with a smile and friendly service. The restaurant manager Riyas greets all the customers as well running a tight ship as does Brett down at the beach. 5 stars for all the above. The view, the warm friendly service, the cozy feel with more amenities I could partake as I was here to rest are great for a solo or family get away I will be back to my home away from home. Best to all, thank you.Lizabeth Mentions shout out to ( but I am fear I will forget a few) Amber,Leo,Julia and of course, Lily the front desk and guest services Riyas manager of food service and the servers Liv Elena Evan Stu Ben Annie and restaurant staff as well as Kudos to the chef, every time ! Brett,Julia and gang at the beach beach There were more. I don't mean to leave ANYONE out . BUT every one I encountered made my visit memorable, pleasant and happy.I can not wait to return next summer. Warm regards,Lizabeth

This was an absolutely beautiful spot! We stayed in the Adler Ocean Suite, which was spendy but worth the money. We had a beautiful deck overlooking the ocean and the room was well appointed with a decent sized fridge as well as both a Nespresso and a Keurig. The staff was great, and it was very quiet in our room. They are the only restaurant in that area so you’ll have to venture out of town if you want something different. This would be a great anniversary or couples get away spot! We will definitely stay here again.

My husband and I stayed at the Tides Beach Club Hotel for the eleventh time and as always, it was fabulous. We usually arrive early because we like to take advantage of a full day on the beach. You can always leave your luggage in your car, or the front desk will look after storage until check in. We had never stayed in this room it was on the small side but had a lovely ocean view as well as a very generous and thoughtful welcome gift. We left the windows open at night to fall asleep listening to the sound of the waves. Our room was kept clean, and we never had to ask for towels they were always there when we got back from the beach. There’s indoor and outdoor dining which includes an amazing front porch with ocean views (make a reservation on OpenTable). The bar area is stunning and conducive to meeting people and making new friends. Both the food and service are always good, and the mixed drinks are spectacular. The Tides at Goose Rocks Beach is a very special place although nothing is perfect it comes close which is mainly due to the people that work there. They’re a great bunch and always eager to help, they make you feel like you’re part of the family. We would like to send a shout-out to several remarkable people that made our stay one to remember (I apologize in advance for any misspelled names): Ben, Amber, Dave, Julia, Leo, Robin, Corey, Ivan, Riyas and of course Chef Roma Louise & Jim
