7 things to look for in your next best beachfront hotel

Time for an oceanfront getaway? The United States boasts thousands of miles of coastline and countless places where you can enjoy the beauty of the shore. But not every beachfront hotel has everything you need to unwind and relax.

Here’s a checklist of seven things to keep in mind when planning your next beachfront vacation. Find them all at Tideline Ocean Resort & Spa:

*A beautiful beach – Duh. A beachfront hotel is on the beach, of course. But not all beaches are created equal. Look for golden sands you can sift through your toes, green palm fronds swaying in the breeze and blue waters that are warm enough to swim in.

*Great weather – The average temperature in Palm Beach in January is 75 degrees. In the summer, it’s actually cooler than in many steamier parts of the country. Yet, the ocean is warm year round.

*Poolside bar – Just in case you want a break from the saltwater in favor of salt on the rim of a margarita.

*World-class restaurant – Fresh Atlantic salmon? Perfectly prepared sushi? When you’re at the beach, the seafood ought to be extraordinary. Check out Brandon’s and Mizu at Tideline Ocean Resort & Spa.

*Fishing – Tideline’s private beach is just a short walk away from the iconic Lake Worth Pier where you can throw a line in the water and catch pompano, snappers, mackerel and more.

*Spa and salon – Because pampering yourself should always be an option.

*Night life – People love beach vacations. Escapes to the city are popular, too. Tideline is a great place for a quiet night of listening to the surf with a cocktail in hand, and it’s also close to downtown West Palm Beach where things are always happening. For more refined tastes, the swanky Palm Beach shopping district is just up Ocean Boulevard from the resort.
