The staff could not have been nicer! The units were clean and well stocked! The location of the resort lends it self to walking, fabulous shopping, wonderful dining, and beautiful sunsets! It is a place where you can go unwind.... be as busy as you want, or be as relaxed as you want!

The resort was quaint. Not one of the monsters on Longboat ,small , two building, two floors each. One on the ocean side and the main building on the opposite side of the street. The street is only 2 lanes...busy at times but not too hard to cross, eventually. There is a sidewalk/bike route that could be safer than the...

Hello Leonard! We are thrilled that you can appreciate the quaint, low key feel of Gulf Tides! The dolphins are always a great surprise if you're lucky enough to catch a sighting. We hope that you find your way back to Longboat Key very soon.

The resort is well run and comfortable. It is very much like a second home, The condos are well equipped and so much better than a stay in a hotel. Smaller resorts like the facilities on Longboat Key are the good side of timesharing, excellent value for your money and well-worth owning. You know exactly what you own and you...

Spent two weeks at this resort. All I can say is location, location, location. The resort could use some updating, but it is immaculate. The staff is excellent and works to make your time there as pleasant as possible. If you have any problem, don't hesitate to ask for help. Adequate tennis courts, pool and free bicycles. Five minutes to...

It is so wonderful to have a small, private beach. The public beaches can get crowded during certain times of the year! St. Armands has some great shopping, and delicious sea food. Thank you for taking your time to let us know about your trip! We hope to see you at Gulf Tides again in the near future, pelzy!

Wonderful spot but getting hard to find availability as many units are privately owned and usually not available. If you are lucky enough to find your date it is a great location and accomodations are great...a fun time.

We exchanged into a 2 bedroom unit through RCI. Great quiet location. Small resort as there are less than 20 units. Perfect for relaxing on the beach or pool without children. The area skews relatively older as we are in our 50s and local restaurants said we were "young" for Longboat Key. We will definitely go back.

The location was excellent. The resort itself was super. The unit was well maintained, the staff friendly and helpful, the beach right across the street. We were there the week of Thanksgiving. The first part of the week was cool which made it great for walking on the beach but not for swimmiing. We can definitely recommend the resort for...

We bought our 2 weeks along time ago, they keep the apartments up to date and even though our air-con broke it is fixed within a very short period of time by a very professional company which GT pay to look after the air-con. As for the beach, if you enjoy snorkelling in the clearest waters and very calm seas...
