We stayed at the Riptide for just one night, prior to driving down to Key Largo last November. This place was a very pleasant surprise. The location is fantastic, the rooms are huge, and the staff was very friendly!

I wish that we could have stayed longer. As a matter of fact, we might plan another trip to Florida, and make this our primary destination!

We really enjoyed our stay here. It's a laid back, no frills kind of place but it had everything we needed. The room had a fully equipped mini kitchen which was brilliant as you can get tired of eating out when on the road. There was a table and chairs inside and veranda furniture outside where you could sip your drink and enjoy the views of the sea and the goings on on the broad walk. The tiki bar was mellow with music until 9pm and a chilled out crowd. It got quiet after that so it would suit families as well. From the door of the room to the ocean took about thirty seconds, heaven. The price was right too. We didn't eat at the bar but the food looked good. The staff were not overly friendly compared to our experience elsewhere in Florida.

Room Tip: If you want more privacy maybe ask for a room on the upstairs balcony further from the bar.

We stayed here 2 nights post-cruise so we could get at least a little beach time before leaving Florida. This is a small mom & pop "old Florida" type hotel, not modern and luxurious, but clean, affordable and you can't beat the location. Our room was spacious enough and had a little kitchenette with full-size fridge- very convenient. My husband & I would happily return and spend a week here - our parents, however, would probably check-in at the nearby Marriott (we were perfectly content here, but for them it was "roughing it").

We had an oceanfront room (#1) - literally, our window was right on the boardwalk, people walking by could watch us sleeping if we didn't close the blinds. The boardwalk and beach were just a few steps away from our room, we loved it! This hotel also has a courtyard with a tiki bar and live music. We didn't hang out there much because it was too cool & windy for the parents. I got the idea that on a typical Fri. or Sat. night, this would be party central, but since it was pretty chilly when we were there, everyone cleared out once the sun went down. So it probably worked out for the best - I don't think the noise would've bothered us much, but our parents definitely would've been griping.

Also have to mention Nick's Bar & Restaurant, which we came across on the Boardwalk. We stopped in one night for drinks and oysters - great margaritas! Then we went back the next day for lunch and dinner. The food and atmosphere were great! We fell in love with Hollywood and will definitely make it back to spend more time!

Room Tip: Rooms in the north building are furthest from the tiki bar area, so quieter. Also, the rooms in the south building have showers only (no tubs), if that's a concern (the north building has tubs).

Dear JPPMP,

Thank you very much for your feedback. We have plans for a renovation that will update our rooms with more features for our guests. We are also looking into heaters for our guests during the winter time when the winds can make for a chilly night. We hope to see you in the future!

Best Regards,

My wife and I first stayed at the Riptide Hotel in June 2012. We returned for two days on March 14th, 2013 prior to a cruise. Since our stay in June 2012 the Riptide has opened a kitchen which serves the Tiki Bar. We only experienced the Nachos and the chips and salsa, however these were very good and we spoke with many people who had other items to eat and they were all impressed. Just like in the past the room was wonderful because of it's location on the beach. The Tiki Bar continues to draw all kinds of people and we again not only met up with people we met before, but met new people. The location of the hotel, the Tiki Bar and music continue to make this a hit and we look forward to coming back soon.

Room Tip: If you want to be right near the Tiki Bar and look straight towards the Ocean ask for room number #8. If you would like to be in the next building a little further from the music and action of the Tiki Bar ask for room #24 as this has a king size bed and looks right towards the ocean also.

My partner and I spent 4 nights at the Riptide in March; we are return guests after having been in 2012. This year, we wound up in an ocean front unit and LOVED it! Our room had windows on three sides giving us great views of the water and the Broadwalk. The units are nice, simply furnished, and we appreciate the comforts provided by having a kitchenette. We also loved the addition of food to the Tiki Bar: we enjoyed the bruschetta and sandwiches that we had there, as well as the camaraderie at the bar. The staff throughout the facility is great and accommodating. We're already looking forward to a return trip in 2014.
