This was our first visit to the area and we are sold on this location. This place is well located and within easy walking distance (7/10 of a mile) to the shopping circle and very close to Lido beach. Two very nice restaurants are also within walking distance. Rooms are a little small but very clean and well maintained. We...

We have been visiting this location for many years. The staff are helpful, professional and cheerful. The location and the ambience around the site are hard to beat. We have been looking for years for the perfect place but so far have not found one, This comes close, being within walking distance of St Armands Circle, having a brilliant beach...

Ok, I've seen the poor reviews, and I can understand how the staff can come across unfriendly to those who are not owners and have traded in. But I assure you they are friendly people once you get to know them. I've been coming here on and off since about 1981 at age 8 and now have been bringing my...

I agree with a lot of other reviews. The staff is not very friendly at all. The only person who actually took time to talk to us was the maintenance guy, He was very friendly and we swapped stories etc as I am from a conversion property as well, I wish I would have remembered his name. Not much information...

Location is perfect. Lido beach is wonderful. With walking distance to terrific restaurants and shops. As an exchange on RCI the rooms are on small side but clean and maintained. It is not a good exchange. Compared to a Marriott exchange much to be desired. Management not warm and fuzzy don't necessarily care if you're there or not. No one...

We've stayed here at least 3 times and are returning this summer. The pool area is small, but never feels crowded, and the beach is a short walk. The beach near the resort is not crowded, and we've spotted dolphins swimming very close by. The one bedroom has a full kitchen and there's a laundry facility on premises. Close to...

My dad found suntide by accident about 25 years ago when my mum was sick in the car and we just needed somewhere to stop and sleep and have been back about 12/13 times since. The décor is dated but they are clean and comfortable rooms with well equipped bathrooms/kitchens. air con/tvs are brilliant. I hate that there is no...

Very nice place, very few rooms face the gulf. Sleeper sofa mattress is terrible, it's new but goes right to the bar. We had a nice size room, master bed was a queen, but comfortable. Everything else was nice. No maid service, you take your own garbage and recycling out. Towel exchange 2 days per week, you take them to...

Ok, let's get this out of the way first: If you are expecting a flashy, glitzy, trendy hustle-bustle, activity-packed establishment, you are going to be disappointed. However, if your main criteria is a nice, quiet, clean place, with a nice pool, that is mere steps away from an amazing beach, then you will be happy at the Suntide Island Beach...
