#308 master bedroom was very hot. Had to call maintenance because it was locked in on 70. Elevators are a night mare so ask for a bottom floor. Beach was crowded but overall a good place. Everything was close by.

First the good... The Waves cafe on site had better, less expensive food than any of the tourist traps in the area... The elevators... If you are not on the 2nd floor be prepared to be pissed off .. They are terrible... You will wait 30 minutes... The resort has many strict rules for the beach use.. No tents in...

This is our 2nd year staying at tidewater unit 2616. Last year we had a fantastic time and our unit was amazing. This year the unit was just as we remembered and tidewater was even better. No more key cards, you get a code for the key pad which is very convenient. Plus everyone gets wrist bands. This eliminates non...

I read tons of reviews before hand. I knew to expect slow elevators, strict security, and issues with checking in. I think that knowing that going in really helped. We didn't really have problems with long waits on elevators other than on check-in. During check-in time on Saturday, it was terrible. You have to wait for a luggage cart, then...

This is a good place and the price was reasonable. It's on the beach in the heart of everything. The views from the balcony were awesome! Although the elevators were pretty hectic the stay was still great. Great staff as well...overall good place!

Loved our room , 410. Very bright and colorful. It was a 2 bedroom with bunk beds. King bed in one room and a queen in the other. The bunks are located in a hallway off of the main hall that leads to the living area. All 3 rooms had their own bathroom. The king room had a tub and...

I will not return to Tidewater... Yes, the condos/rooms/living space are clean and well kept. The view from my suite was a wonderful view of the beach and ocean. This venue is located ON the beach which is a major plus. There are indoor and outdoor pools available. Security is present and friendly. All of the positives of this resort...

We just returned from our first trip to the Tidewater Beach Resort. We traveled with two other families, sharing a unit with one, while the other, larger family stayed in another. We arrived around 6:30 p.m. on Saturday after a 13 hour trip and were glad we had read reviews and knew a few tips. Arriving at that hour we...

This is a very nice resort but I would never stay here again. Everything is great about the resort but the elevator situation just ruins the whole stay. We only stayed 2 nights but we probably spent at least 3 hours of our time waiting on elevators.
