I have stayed her every may for about 4 years. Everyone there is very friendly and a lot of people come every year. It has a nice size pool and hot tub and is located on a very nice beach. Live the sunsets on the beach. Units are setup condo style with kitchens and basic utensils. Located a short walk...

We spend a week here with other couples. The rooms were small - but clean and comfortable. The bed was fine. The kitchen was okay for making small dinners but was minimally equipped with dishes, utensils, and glassware. It worked for our week on the beach. The rooms do not really have a view of the ocean from inside -...

We very much enjoy Suntide. It is right on the beach and the rooms are clean and have small equipped kitchens. Right down the street from St. Armands Circle which is great for strolling around or a nice dinner. The resort and beach are also quiet and less commercial which we prefer.

Suntide is a very well maintained self-catering resort, we have always found all the staff friendly and helpful. Location is ideal for all parties, couples of all ages and families alike. The beach is just a very short walk away, truthfully if you can not manage 30 yards should you be on any beach? This is not some flash hotel...

Rooms are ok, not new but clean and everything works! Nice layout and comfortable bed and living room! Staff have been helpful, lots of beach chairs if you like or the pool is nice as well. The circle is only a 1 mile walk. Beach is good for walking sand is packed close to water. Not very wide from sand...

This is a timeshare rental so don't expect "hotel" services. The rooms are clean, the property is well maintained and it is a close drive to St Armand's Circle. Nice amenities and right on the beach. You can walk to the Lido Beach Resort which has a restaurant and bar. Very relaxing area.

A little piece of paradise. Suntide is a beach resort on the Gulf of Mexico. Very relaxing, clean, well maintained and a friendly staff. Each condo is equipped with all the comforts that you will need for your stay. A short drive (or walk) to St. Armands Circle where you find enough excellent eateries that, realistically, you never have to...

I have been a timeshare owner of this resort for more than 20 years and love it. The larger one bedrooms and two bedroom apartments are definitely more comfortable. It is an older resort and not lavish but is very clean and extremely well maintained. The furnishings are updated regularly, and the pool and spa are clean and kept comfortable...

We come and stay 2-3 weeks in December/January every year for the past 10 years. The resort is very cozy and clean. Every year we come they have done some fantastic updates to the place. The front desk is very pleasant and accomodating with most requests. We have to change units each week, but there is always somebody on hand...
