“Just the two of us.”
Reviewed 18 December 2013

My wife and I had a great time at this resort. We were there last week of Sept. into first of Oct. Very clean unit. Small resort, very quiet which is what we were looking for. Beach is beautiful, we use the gas grills a lot and enjoy the Armands circle area. This was our 3rd visit to this resort in the past 3 years and we will go back.

Room Tip: We like the second story rooms and away from the pool area.

Great place for a relaxing stay!!! If you're into the beach, quiet, comfortable (not necessarily new) accommodations, with a very friendly and supportive staff ..... this is the place. Restaurants in the area (St Armands Circle) are pricey but worth it. Monday donuts and Wednesday Hot Dogs great mixing opportunity.
Beds are a little hard.

I have to comment on the bad reviews that Suntide is getting. My family has stayed at Suntide since the place opened. They do have several rules but the rules that they have are for the protection and courtesy of the guests. You that complain about the rules are usually the ones that violate the rules. As far as the staff, Cheryl and Walt are top notch. They treat you like family and are always willing to help you if needed. The place is a little dated at times but how can you complain when you are sitting on the beach. All I have to say is if you don't like this place then drive a little farther south to a place called Coquina on the Beach. I'm sure you will have better to say about this great place.

Room Tip: Pool side or down by the beach...all rooms are good.

Unfortunely on our thrid day, our unit was robbed. Someone took our cash. We did not know the unit had a safe, found it in the kitchen in a bottom cabinet No compassion, empathy or sorrow from the management. When the police arrived, they brought them in our back door, not sure why other than not to be noticed. Otherwise the condo is very user friendly, clean and well located, just steps to the pool and beach.

We arrived back home on 31st August 2013 having spent a week at this resort. We had two apartments, a one bed and a two bed. Prior to our arrival we were a bit concerned about some of the poor reviews, particularly concerning overbearing management and the huge list of "do's and dont's". I have to say we wished we had stayed for two whole weeks, true the units are dated but they were perfectly fine, very clean and the location couldn't have been better. Within fifty yards of our apartment was the beach and it was superb. In fact the whole area was so clean and beautiful we will return next year if we can. One trip you should so is drive down to Venice and go to "Sharkeys" on the fishing pier, the food was great and the wildlife amazing. We say manatees and about ten dolphins swimming under and around the pier whilst we were there. WE would highly recommend this resort to anyone.

On the Gulf Beach. Excellent sand beach. Near St. armaund Circle upscale shopping area. The rooms were clean but a bit dated. We wear next to the pool about 15 steps away and that was terrific. The whole area is hey beautiful resort area with lots of things to do. Grocery shopping at cetera nearby.
