Riptide Hotel
I can honestly recommend this hotel for several reasons.
For nr 1 I put the wonderful people that run the hotel.
The owner had reserved a parking and came out straight away and asked if we need assistance or something.
Then a lovely woman gave us our key and told us that we are free to use their computer with Internet and also lots of movies, both dvd and vcr that are free to borrow.
A very friendly and nice room service lady made the cherry on the top as she both was very nice and funny.
The Hotel is placed right on the beach and there is no words to describe it how wonderful it is to wake up in the morning and see the sun slowly rise from Atlantic Ocean.
The room was absolutely perfect.
We all know when we build our own rooms that it’s not that easy.
Well, Riptide has managed to build rooms with a wonderful style which make them both luxury and cozy.
They also have a very nice Tiki bar with live music and also great people that worked in the bar.
Riptide is absolutely a Hotel that I can recommend and I will spend
many vacations there.

My husband and I spent a long weekend at the Riptide for the Hollywood Beach Clambake and enjoyed every minute!! The perfect location-beachfront, beautiful views, easy access to activities and dining on the Broadwalk! The staff were excellent-friendly and accommodating. Parking was handy and they made sure spots were saved for guests. The hotel offered free use of anything you could need to enjoy the beach and the area. The Tiki Bar and live music was unbeatable. We can't wait to get back!!!

My husband and I are very no frills. We want beach, good people, clean room and fun, this place had all that, it was AWESOME!! It is a small 13 room hotel that gives the best beach vibe with the Tiki Bar and the live music. The rooms are just right with the kitchen. The staff was more than accomadating and by the time you leave you feel like you have made some really great friends. Great location, within walking distance of many great things. It really is right on the beach and with the complimentary bikes, beach chairs, boogie boards, grills and parking we felt like we could not have made a better choice.

At least once in your lifetime you must have a stay at the Riptide. Upon arrival it was abundantly clear that Scott takes his vested interest in the Riptide very seriously by his display of professionalism and sincere desire for his guests to enjoy their stay. When you see Veronica's bright smile you instantly realize her desire to make certain you are happy and content in your surroundings is genuine. If you enjoy (i) spectacular sunsets with your coffee, (ii) a fabulous day at the beach with a chair, towel, and book at your fingertips for the taking, (iii) a bike ride, run or stroll on the broadway, (iv) great live entertainment and huge laughs with your new found friends and an ice cold beverage, (v) a spontaneous family style meal in the courtyard, or (vi) to sit in peace on your own, then the Riptide is for you! If you typically enjoy a 5 star resort you may arrive bejeweled but you will instantly find to relax and truly let go is your time better well spent. So grab your partner, friends or just yourself and make a plan. Thanks again to Scott, Veronica and what I consider to e my new friends for a fabulous vacation. Ready to plan for the next trip!

I stayed at the Riptide hotel for a long weekend with two girlfriends. Right from the start the hospitality and friendliness of the staff was awesome. They took our bags because we were a couple hours early and before check in time, showed us the suntan lotion, beach chairs and towels and we were on our way to the beach! (Which is a lovely couple of steps away) From that point on, the Riptide made our weekend getaway worry free! The Tiki Bar is nice and the music all day was perfect. We sat on the beach each day until the sun went down just relaxing, drinking and listening to music! Of course being on the Broadwalk was perfect too. Just a short stroll from everything you need. I was sad to leave and I can't wait to do it again! Thanks to the awesome staff and Veronica!!
