This is not a hotel. It is condo and timeshare resort. If you arrive after 7:00 you will need to access your room key by calling a code. Hope for good weather as you will be out side fumbling with a phone and lock. The condo was nice. A bit worn, but decorated nicely. Since this is a family resort...

We arrived at Tops'l the beginning of October. Wow what an amazing resort. The beach is pure sugar white sand with nice shallow water out to the first sand bar (great for kids), the water was warm and lots of dolphins can be seen all day. The beach condos are set back nicely so at night the stars are bright....

Nice location, spacious units, but room layout not ideal. Stayed at Tops'l for three nights in October for a wedding. We were in the Tides building, unit 1307. It is a spacious 2 bedroom with 2 bathrooms and a huge balcony. However, the layout of the unit is really lousy. The headboard of the bed in the master bedroom is...

Would be Paradise except everyone from Tx, LA, OK, Tenn, etc is also there in high season! Takes 50 minutes to go 10 miles bumper to bumper. Dinner reservations same way. Don't go in Summer. Same with Seaside only worse. Tops'l s a nice place but again beach way too crowded.

We stayed there for 4 nights Oct 12-16. The condo itself (Tides 1303) was gorgeous and newly renovated. The bed was comfy, the view could not be beat. It was kind of annoying the pools closed at 9, because when you're on vacation, who wants to go in at 9? Then Saturday night the 15th there was a wedding and...

I booked a condo here at the last minute when my previous plans were changed by Hurricane Matthew. It turned out to be a great decision. Unit 711 in the Tides building was beautifully decorated and looked just like the pictures online. The Tides building is directly in front of the ocean and our balcony was huge. The only negative...

I used award points from my employer to rent a sea view condo at Tops'l in Miramar Beach. We ended up getting 1307 in the Tides building. Overall, we were absolutely thrilled with almost everything about our week at Tops'l! The condo was very nice, but needed a few repairs. But again, we were thrilled with the accommodations.
