Such a fun and causal place to stay. The tiki bar there is the place to be! Great food, drinks and service.The bartender Christie is so cool and has the brightest smile ever! The barback Joey is the most happening guy around. Those two make a fun and hardworking team who make sure the guests are having the best time...

Located directly on the beach, in Hollywood. A clean respectable establishment. There is daily afternoon/evening live music until 9 PM. There are two buildings, so if live music is not your thing, request to be in the other building. I didn't have a great sense of security thou. The lock for the door of my room, could easily be opened...

Had a wonderful 3 nights here. The staff were great. They provide beach chairs and bikes free of charge. There is a musician every night and a few colorful regulars who keep you entertained. Look for Joann (in the pretty blazer) sitting at the bar each night. She has some stories! Rooms were clean but older. We will definitely be...

Great location, the room was very large with a full kitchen. The staff was awesome and being right on the boardwalk was awesome! Parked our car and never got in it again until it was time to leave. Tons of things to do and right on the ocean was fantastic!!

We booked based on Trip Advisor reviews and found the Riptide to be a fun place with a great location. The Tiki Bar opens at noon and starts filling up shortly thereafter, met some interesting folks there. Live music until 9 ever day/night, local artists, some of whom are great. The gal that played one night sounded like Judy Collins...

We decided to stay at this resort after seeing all of the great reviews and pictures which looked decent. Upon arriving, there was extremely loud music playing, which was fine, however, the music could be heard in our room with the doors and windows tightly shut. It was as if we had a radio in our room turned on full...

We have been coming to the Riptide for about 5 years.. the Level of service has gone way down. Our Lock on our room was broken and the Cleaning lady left the door unlocked and we were gone all day!!

The Riptide is ideally located in this town, and met or exceeded our expectations. The front office staff, housekeeping and the Tiki Bar all made it worthwhile. Like all properties that face the relentless coastal weather, the upkeep and maintenance is constant. The Riptide is better than most.
