From the minute we pulled into Tides, we knew we were in for a treat. Hearing the waves rolling as we were parking our cars, we realized we were immediately a miillion miles away from the daily grind without the effort of travelling to the ends of the earth to get there. Maybe just the Edge of the World (as the locals like to call Folly Beach).
The hotel had recently been rennovated. Staff was amazing - everyone made a point to make eye contact, smile and be super-accommodating. Views from the room (all have ocean views) were beautiful and I could get used to waking up front-beach with the sun rising over the water real easily!
Bed was super comfortable and linens were great. Plenty of little extras made our stay more fun - Starbucks on site, great room service opptions, heated pool, firepit on the patio for when the sun went down and temperature dropped, great service from ALL staff, good shampoos/conditioner, nice wine selection, supepr restaurant on site, Fun Folly laid-backness of the beach town, etc...
The onsite restaurant, BLU, offered an impressive treat of seafood and specialty dishes. Much of it local and ALL of it exquistely prepared and presented. Our waiter recommended superb pairings of dishes and wines and all in all it was a perfect meal!
Can't say enough good about Tides, Blu and the fun of Folly!
