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...

It was so excellent 2 things, 1. They could rack their beach and the room could use some maintenance. Our weather was perfect, there were dolphins swimming right in front of us, easy access to groceries and pharmacy. Watch out for the no-seeums they got me but not my friends. Did I say WOW and excellent

Owned one week for ten years and purchased a second week five years ago! We love the peace and quiet! No chain stores except Publix and CVS! Only Mom and Pop stores and restaurants! Great break from life! Pool is always warm and the beach is always perfect! Gulf Tides is a treasure among the chaos!
