We spent the week of Feb 1st to 8th, 2014 and were taken by the beauty and natural wonder of this area. Our studio condo over looked the Gulf approx. 150 ft from the water. The beach was clean and the beach lounges provides for a relaxing atmosphere to kick back and enjoy. The condo is well maintained and well equipped for all your needs. The staff were accommodating and friendly and do their best to please. We highly recommend this resort and plan to return ourselves.

Room Tip: Room 201 is a quaint studio that over looks the beach and the Gulf.

Just spent a very relaxing week at this resort and enjoyed it immensely. The resort personnel were very helpful and friendly. The resort is located right on the beach and is well maintained. It is convenient to many restaurants and tourist sites and all in all was pretty close to perfect in all respects. Will come back !!

We spent a week there. The beach is perfect and while we were there (last week of August) there was not many others on the beach. You have huge beach acreage to yourself. The rooms were large, well furnished, pretty modern and the staff was very nice. Free washer/dryer was nice (but not in the room). Elevators made it very easy. Only real downside was limited view of the ocean from the room (even on top floors) and you have to walk across the street to get to the beach. It was no big deal walking across, but someone told us in prime beach season it can take 20 minutes for a break in the cars to get across (they won't stop for you and there is no crosswalk). Great spot to run....not many restaurants and nothing to do except the beach but great restaurants in Sarasota (downtown area) - Avoid St. Armands Circle, it is overpriced and for the tourists.

I recently accompanied my mother-in-law for the second time to her studio timeshare at Gulf Tides Resort on Longboat Key. This tidy, attractive, clean apartment is located just steps from the beach (literally outside the front door) and what a beach it is! Pristine and virtually empty this time of year. I would get up early in the morning and there wouldn't be another soul as far as I could see in either direction. The resort supplies lounge chairs, a grill, and a lovely pool across the road (along with tennis courts that seem to be used rarely). The owners are treated to breakfast on Monday mornings and a bbq lunch on Wednesdays. Everyone is courteous and kind and we often see the same couples/families return at the same time each year. This was an utterly relaxing vacation and I look forward to returning next year.

Room Tip: Beach side! Even though there are other, probably larger, apartments across the road, it is worth it to have that amazing view and be able to walk right onto the beach!

The resort offers a small beach area with very comfortable beach lounge chairs. We spent almost every evening we were there watching the most lovely sunsets! The two bedroom units have 2 baths and a wonderful, updated, modern kitchen. I enjoyed cooking there.

Room Tip: The two bedroom units are across the street from the beach. The water is visible from the room, but to fully enjoy the view, you must walk across the street. The resort has wonderful beach chairs/lounges and a shower/picnic area on the beach. There is traffic all day and night, but it is not a noise problem.
