“Another visit to Ebb Tide”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

We have just returned from another holiday at Ebb Tide (4 weeks stay this year). We met all of our friends again, and was looked after by Maria and Graham Coates. We were unsure if 4 weeks would be too long in one place, and would we find enough to do. But we we should not have worried, the time went, and we did not do all we wanted to do.One of the highlights this year was a visit by two Manette's at the Ebb Tide fishing dock, (see Photo). The Ebb Tide is such a friendly place, you soon make new friends.

My family and I have just had our 5th holiday at the Ebb Tide and once again we were greeted like long lost friends. Maria and Graham make everyone welcome and no request is too much trouble. The accommodation is excellent - fully furnished, clean & fresh,- everything one could ask for.
The pool is perfect and the views of Clearwater Beach are stunning. The beach and shops are close enough to enjoy daily. Restaurants and bars are close and friendly.
We originally took "pot luck" with our choice of the Ebb Tide but would not consider another resort now - long may it reign. BRILLIANT!!

Room Tip: If you have children the lower level rooms are more convenient

This our 2nd visit to Ebb Tide and our 3rd is already booked! The reason is simple - Graham and Marie are wonderful hosts. They do everything to make your stay as comfortable and relaxing as they possibly can. The views are spectacular, the apartments clean and comfortable, the pool area perfect for some chill out time, the fishing is superb from the deck, the location is second to none, with shops and restaurants to be found locally, the trolley bus picked us up and dropped us off right outside - lovely for us elderly guests. Perfect all round. Thanks Graham and Marie for your generous hospitality. Pearl and Tony.

This is a fantastic and friendly place right on the water. Marie and staff were extremely friendly, helpful and inviting. The place is well kept and our room was very clean. The hotel and the area around it is in a very quiet part of Clearwater Beach away from the hustle and bustle. It's location is a short walk to the beach, Palm, Frenchy's and also part of the downtown. The heated pool is a welcome treat during the winter months. We very much enjoyed our long weekend stay while in town for Phillies Baseball Spring Training 2013. Hope to be back next year if they have room!

This year will be our 8th stay at the Ebb Tide and we cannot WAIT to get back!
We've stayed at several motels & resorts in as many different areas of Florida, and felt no need to look any further after our first stay here.
The Ebb Tide is reasonable, quite comfortable, is right on the water and also has on site laundry. Do your shopping for food/drinks/asst. necessities and you are quite self sufficient and have little need to leave this place.
Keep in mind the beach is only a 4 minute walk from here as are several restaurants and those legendary CWB sunsets.....
We find The Coates Family very accomodating and fun, and they are very familiar with the area and can answer any questions you may have on where to eat, shop or tour.
We also enjoy the humor they send our way, and the group we meet up with all of these years. If you want to join in, just do, you won't regret it!
Thank you for making our vacations so wonderful Graham, Marie, Marek & Becki.
Cheers!

Room Tip: All rooms are pool side and have a view of the water. You can also sit outside of your room and jus...

This year was our fourth visit to the Ebb Tide & we are pleased to say that it is was just as lovely to stay there this Xmas as it was on our first visit. Graham & Maria are the perfect hosts. The location is the ideal place to either explore the beach or just sun yourself by the pool, watching the boats pass by. Clean, quiet, well maintained & low key. We love it. Cant wait to return again!!!!!

Room Tip: Units are well shaded & cool. For sun lovers choose a room on the South side near the water.

We stayed here for a week with our 3 year old. She loved it. The pool is nice and it overlooks the bay. Beautiful place. There is a playground a couple blocks away. The beach is a short walk. My husband worked out at a gym about 5 mins away. A few restaurants and a grocery store within walking distance. A short drive from larger stores and more restaurants. Would definitely return. We were one of the only families there that week, which meant it was pretty quiet. The older folks adopted my daughter and she loved it.
