We've visited Amber Tides three times in the last 4 years. We really enjoyed our stay here...but for those of you who are looking for 5 stars and an impeccable stay don't bother. We really like this place, but we are "fend for ourselves" types and don't feel like we have to spend the extra to be right on the beach listening to all the spring breakers- this is a quite hotel. Overall, this hotel reminds me a lot of what florida was in the 70's. The rooms are okay, not fancy,and a little dated , but clean. The best things about this place are the pool, the seating areas and the manager. The pool and the surrounding area are a life saver during those times when its freezing at the beach. We went one spring and it was so cold that we couldn't even go to the beach (even to walk), but the heated pool in it's sheltered area was warm enough to sunbath. There are a bunch of private seating areas around the pool with grills (stop at the grocery on your way into clearwater), and great ambient lighting. We would go back in a heartbeat. Since our initial visits there have been other properties that have opened owned by the same company, and they look updated compared to Amber Tides, but most of the people staying at those places still come to Amber Tides for the pool and the grill. Im giving a 4 star rating based on the pool, the seating area, and the manager....Id give it a 3 star if based on the rooms.
