As an entitled and obnoxious tourist (per 31sli’s review 😀), we enjoyed our stay and would recommend the hotel! It is on a beautiful beach and away from the traffic of the main town, but close enough to go for dinner or shopping. The staff is friendly and we enjoyed the restaurant. Our favorite thing to do during our stay was to sit on the front porch and lookoutst the beach

What an awesome place. The staff inside the hotel is great from Lilly, Ethan, Ben, Shannon to the guys outside on the beach- Anthony, Nick, Ian, etc. they were there to help at any moment and just have great attitudes. The chicken sandwich at lunch is a must with a little El Diablo. Going back next year

This place is so special…it’s tough to find the words to capture it. It’s like taking a step back in time, but taking modern, sophisticated food and drinks with you. The setting, the food, the drinks, and the staff all will amaze you. Special shout outs to Shannon, Quinh, Anthony, Matt, Ian, and Nick. They are all so helpful and hardworking while maintaining the relaxing, friendly atmosphere that this impossibly charming place exudes.

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. Txs again - the girls in room #204

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.
