Reviewed 7 July 2013

My daughter and I stayed here several nights for a short mid-winter getaway. The room was perfect for us- minikitchen, 2 comfortable beds and clean bathroom. The real draw is the tiki bar and 30yard walk to the ocean. The locals raved about the food and drinks (rare, considering the tourist attraction.) The boardwalk is straight out of the 70s, yet offers enough people watching and kitschy shops to keep your attention. We had a blast and will continue to make Riptide our long weekend destination.

We live in AZ and were looking for a relaxing place on the beach but also near enough places so that our 3 young adult kids could take off ! Our room was the northside overlooking the ocean. The room was very clean and smelled good. (Which was very important to me). The staff allowed my friend to come earlier and stack up the kitchen for us. They have bikes, chairs for the beach and a bbq you can use for lunch. Everything we needed was there! Loved this place..Gail K.

We stayed here two nights and never wanted to leave! Very clean and at home feeling,there is a nice tiki bar right outside our room and someone played music every night at the bar. The beach is just steps from your room and is clean and clear. good snorkeling for shells. The boardwalk has all kinds of places to eat and get good drinks!!! Very good for couples

My husband & I stayed here recently for my 28th bday. We absolutely loved it. Very home-like feel, conveniently walk to the beach & board walk & the bar just outside our room was great as was the service. I would however expand on the hours of the bar. The only bad expereince that pretty much ruined our time was the beyond Obnoxious wife or relative of the owner. She needs to stay off property & not ruin it. Just thinking of her behavior, her attitude & words makes my blood boil to this ver day (& its been 2 months since we stayed here). Besides that heartless "lady" everything else was great!

Room Tip: First floor was great!

You are literally right on the beach! A nice little tiki bar open all day with good food. Grocery and convenience stores are not close by so if you don't want to buy soda and water from the bar then make sure you bring plenty with you (we did not have a vehicle with us). Broadwalk is right in front of hotel with some wonderful restaurants within walking distance. Our room had a nice kitchen with full sized appliances. Our room had an incredible view and was plenty spacious for 4 adults. I will definitely stay here again if I have the chance.

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!
