We were in 209, a Two Bedroom, Bayside Condo with a Gulf View, as Wyndham //RCI members for a wonderful week .The rooms were cozy, and the King Master was quite warm,but the fan did help.

Resort is small, quiet, and offers beach towels, chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards, bicycles, gas grills and covered outdoor tables. Good soundproofing between units. Small, quiet beach across the street. No crosswalk. Pool is clean but no shade. People are friendly and helpful. Ofiice is only open until 5. Units are clean, spacious. The kitchen is well equipped with granite counters....

It was so excellent 2 things, 1. They could rack their beach and the room could use some maintenance. Our weather was perfect, there were dolphins swimming right in front of us, easy access to groceries and pharmacy. Watch out for the no-seeums they got me but not my friends. Did I say WOW and excellent

Owned one week for ten years and purchased a second week five years ago! We love the peace and quiet! No chain stores except Publix and CVS! Only Mom and Pop stores and restaurants! Great break from life! Pool is always warm and the beach is always perfect! Gulf Tides is a treasure among the chaos!

I've been here a few times in the past 6 years. I always end up in condo 104. It's a smaller studio, but it's gulf side, and that's what matters. Unit 104 has two murphy beds and a pull out couch. It is set back a little further from the beach than some of the other gulf side, but still...

This is where you go to get away from it all and the beach is right there and at night you have the Circle and much more. This is my second visit and one of my favorite places in Florida. If you just need to get away from it all this the place. I suggest you rent the pent house...
