Tre codes sent to us via E-Mail, did not work we couldn’t get in for about 1 hour.... When we called we were informed we didn’t have a reservation, our problem was resolved but it was ridiculous that we had to be put through this
Laura, us3 night family trip
Good 6.0
The condo complex is nice. The lady at the front desk was very nice and helpful. We liked the armbands and keypad door entry. Our unit was disappointing. The furniture was old and in need of replacement. The master bed was old and really worn out. Very uncomfortable. There were blinds on the window but they didn't help much. There was a security light right outside the window and it made the room very bright at night. The only tables were high-top even the set on the balcony. Would love to have something more comfortable. The dishwasher in the kitchen was not attached to the cabinet as when the drawers were pulled out it fell forward. The carpet was old and dirty looking. It was also coming loose around the balcony door. It is very doubtful that we would stay here again.

Tidewater is a PCB Winner
It was a great condo. The 27th floor was high up, but it was a great view of the ocean. The bedroom, both bathrooms, the living room, and the kitchen were very clean. The king size bed was very comfortable. The kitchen had everything we needed. The property was huge and convenient with 2 outdoor pools, 2 indoor pools, a movie theater, a restaurant, and easy beach access. There was even a little store on the ground level that sold drinks, ice cream, and Starbucks. The parking deck across the street was very secure and convenient with a covered walk-way above the street connecting to the resort. We will definitely return.

Nice place, awesome location
Tidewater was great! Our room 416 was not as great. We will never stay in that room again. The toilet in hall was dirty, carpet was nasty and refrigerator and freezer stunk really bad especially the freezer.

Nice and relaxing get away with the fam.
We had a wonderful time!!!! Our unit was perfect, along with the view! Elevator was slow. Due to the reviews before booking, it was not a big surprise, and wasn’t bad at all. Definitely will come back!

As usual there's really nothing to complain about with tidewater. It's the 2nd time staying this year... Room was clean and the staff was friendly.. Bed was pretty uncomfortable this time but everything else made it worth it...

My Staying
It's a regular normal hotel, was normally clean, the check in process is a little delaying. General speaking it's a good hotel, the only bad thing (as my personal opinion) is as it is a big building has some issues which you might have to deal with because of it's size and capability, in other words i'm saying that seems to crowded for me, I do prefer small hotels when you see almost the same people while you are staying there and the processes are faster and personalized. In other hand it has good facilities, like good pools, areas, access to the street, access to the beach, and it was clean. Even thought the cleanliness of the room and the hotel, in general some details of weathering (wear) and yellowness are visible in some areas due to high traffic and usage.
