This was our fourth time staying at Tops'l Tides. We've always stayed at the Tides building, top floor, gulf view. The condos are in good shape. The one we had this year, 1503, had new appliances and was nicely decorated. The amenities are nice, the food is good, but pricey. Gratuity is included with each purchase I would have given...

We have stayed here several times. This year we were in Tides 804. Unloading is easy because they have grocery carts and luggage carts for guest use. There are 3 elevators so there is not usually a long wait. I will warn you that when you arrive there is a fountain that is inspiring if you already have to pee....

We stayed at Beach Manor 510, which is managed by Gibson Property. The location is phenomenal. The sand was clean and powdery at the beach, the water was clear and aquamarine and the area was not congested with tourists. The grounds at Tops'l were beautifully manicured. The unit we were in had unforgivably old and uncomfortable beds, particularly in BR...

Only thing that keeps me from Excellent rating is that we had to clean cups, coffee pot, etc. in bathroom sink. We didn't cook, but drank coffee and ate cereal in our efficiency unit. And the huge Jacuzzi -- couldn't locate a switch to turn it on!!

The grounds are immaculate and the location is wonderful. The cons are not to be ignored though. The WiFi is the speed of old dial-up and hot water was non existent in the Summit building. The beach is beautiful white sand and the surf can be strong so watch small children closely.

Our group was traveling with children so we wanted the quickest and easiest route to the beach. Our request was granted. We stayed on the first floor in room 113. The walk to the beach took less than two minutes. Two pools were also within a minute walk. One of the pools have a bar that had some food and...
