The staff at Tops'l went out of their way to be accommodating. I had a problem with a charge on my bill and the manager made it right. The room was nice the food was good at the conference. The beach was beautiful. On the other hand if I were going again, I would not stay in a room just...

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...

This is our new favorite place!! Tremendous beaches. Amazing accommodations. Stay at the tides. !!! The walk to summit is a little farther but it's not convenient if you are lugging chairs cooler etc. we loved the access to the racquet club for the nice pool steam room hot tub and clay court tennis. Also a great place to walk...

tops'l is a nice high rise condo complex right on the water. the pool area and bar are ok, but you can walk to the Hiltons pool bar next door door which is much nicer. there's not a nicer beach anywhere . tons of close stores and restaurants within a short drive

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. The balcony...

We stayed here over Labor Day weekend in the Summit building in room 601. The condo was decorated very tastefully. There were granite counters in the kitchen and both baths. There were all new stainless steel appliances. The kitchen was fully stocked as well. Both beds were very comfortable. The king is actually a memory foam bed. There is a...

This was my first in renting a 2 bedroom condo for vacation. This was an excellent choice. This property is high quality and just a fabulous place to stay. I have been in a lot of hotels within Florida where the word "used" or "worn" captures the location or the room that you stay in. Not this place. The room...
