Set in a frenetic scene, the Tides is a more upscale and laid back alternative on Ocean Drive. True the restaurant and bar scene are not happening, but it seems like you would have to compromise on the chill effect if these were more bustling. The room and staff are great, there are a couple of over achievers here that will make your stay perfect, as in any organization, there are some that are treading water. The room was big, clean and has a great shower. The pool is behind the hotel on the mezzanine level and feels kind of isolated and really not happening. If you are looking for a pool scene on the beach, this may not be the place for you, if you want privacy and solitude, this may be the place for you. The bar here is really bad, the bartender while we were there is really not a people person, was at the bar by myself and was able to engage her in a pleasant conversation, came back with the wife and got a lot of one word answers, I can talk to my teenagers if I want that interchange.
If you are looking for chill in an active area, this is a great alternative. (BTW on noise level, it is loud but it usually calms down around 11 or 12 and we had no problems getting off to sleep)
