Wonderful spot but getting hard to find availability as many units are privately owned and usually not available. If you are lucky enough to find your date it is a great location and accomodations are great...a fun time.

We exchanged into a 2 bedroom unit through RCI. Great quiet location. Small resort as there are less than 20 units. Perfect for relaxing on the beach or pool without children. The area skews relatively older as we are in our 50s and local restaurants said we were "young" for Longboat Key. We will definitely go back.

The location was excellent. The resort itself was super. The unit was well maintained, the staff friendly and helpful, the beach right across the street. We were there the week of Thanksgiving. The first part of the week was cool which made it great for walking on the beach but not for swimmiing. We can definitely recommend the resort for...

We bought our 2 weeks along time ago, they keep the apartments up to date and even though our air-con broke it is fixed within a very short period of time by a very professional company which GT pay to look after the air-con. As for the beach, if you enjoy snorkelling in the clearest waters and very calm seas...

Resort is small, quiet, and offers beach towels, chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards, bicycles, gas grills and covered outdoor tables. Good soundproofing between units. Small, quiet beach across the street. No crosswalk. Pool is clean but no shade. People are friendly and helpful. Ofiice is only open until 5. Units are clean, spacious. The kitchen is well equipped with granite counters....

It was so excellent 2 things, 1. They could rack their beach and the room could use some maintenance. Our weather was perfect, there were dolphins swimming right in front of us, easy access to groceries and pharmacy. Watch out for the no-seeums they got me but not my friends. Did I say WOW and excellent

Owned one week for ten years and purchased a second week five years ago! We love the peace and quiet! No chain stores except Publix and CVS! Only Mom and Pop stores and restaurants! Great break from life! Pool is always warm and the beach is always perfect! Gulf Tides is a treasure among the chaos!
