I was happy (for the most part) with the condo I stayed in, but the actual building itself was another story. It is old and way past it's prime. It has a street walkover from the parking lot to the building and the first impression is not a good one. The smell and feel is that of an old, dank,...

We loved our stay at Tidewater. Arrived very late but after hours check-in process was easy. Elevators were no problem like I have read others say. We used the elevators on the far ends of the building and waited no more than 2 minutes (on the 24th floor!). Our condo (2415) was great. It had everything we needed and we...

This is your third year at the Tidewater. Our room was as advertised, all the items you need in kitchen to make meals. Book the 1 bed room units ending in 09, 12 & 15. Those are the 1 bed room units with the Master with a slider that opens to the Balcony and the ocean. Parking is great across...

Elevators were a pain in the butt the entire time. We dreaded having to use them as the wait was indefinite and elevators were frequently already full. Unfortunately we were on the 20th floor. Check in was unnecessarily complicated. We booked through airbnb and weren't told abt the additional $25 for parking. The overall experience was mediocre at best. The...

Stayed on the 15th floor and literally spent the majority of my vacation waiting on elevators. I travel for a living and have never encountered anything like this. The beach was also a complete mess with some crusty old jerk running the rental chair service like he owned the resort. Beach water was nasty from drain pipe flowing right into...

This building was older and they've done some remodeling. If you're planning on staying, I'd highly recommend a corner unit and make sure you check out the unit you're renting online before committing. Some units are much nicer than others. When we were there, the Tiki Bar and one swimming pool were closed for remodeling which was disappointing. Also, they...

The condo was exceptionally clean, which was greatly appreciated! The owners have provided many extras and the unit is nicely decorated with lots of cute personal touches. The kitchen was well stocked, but could use some new sharp knives. The bed in the master bedroom was really comfortable. Although there is a huge walk in closet it would have been...

We had a wonderful time at this resort. Staff was very friendly at all times. We were worried about the elevators being super busy and slow but they were just fine. The east pool had a sign up saying they were doing repairs until February 2017 and it was still closed in March which was a bummer because hot tubs...

A very nice place to stay. Please remember that this is not a hotel but someone's condo that you are renting. If you need to be pampered go somewhere else. If you want a great place to stay with a fantastic view, this is the place to stay. Yes, you may have to wait for an elevator or carry your...

I booked a room for this upcoming weekend and purchased trip protection. I had to cancel trip due to work issues. I called and expressed this three times via travelocity (made booking through),and Tidewater refused to refund my money. They asked for a future potential date of travel. I indicated right now I couldn't give one due to upcoming travel...
