We stayed in unit 1304 (2 bedroom) of the Tides and I would highly recommend it. It was clean, spacious and up-to-date. The balcony is huge and has a large table and plenty of chairs.
I don't think very many people realize that there is a grading system for these condos. That is probably why some people were disappointed with their rental experience here. Unit 1304 is a platinum unit. In the Tides building, units ending in 01 through 05 have direct gulf views. Units ending in 06 are have the best location - with views to the south wrapping around to the west.
The grounds are beautiful and well-maintained. The fitness center is large and has plenty of equipment. There are 12 rubico (green clay) tennis courts which older people like because clay is easy on the knee and hip joints. There is also a half-court basketball court (which seemed very popular) and a mini-golf course. There is a tram that covers the property. You just need to call to get the tram to pick you up and take you where you want to go. The pool and hot tub were very popular. Lots of kids there constantly. We never used the hot tub because of this.
As mentioned in previous reviews, the beach in front of this condo is comfortably crowded. Go slightly to the east and you can have more privacy. Go to the west and you will encounter a bigger crowd, particularly in front of the Hilton.
There is no daily maid service unless you request it but that was not a problem for us.
We did have trouble with wi-fi here. It was spotty at best.
We really enjoyed our stay here and look forward to a future return visit.
