We rented a condo on the seventh floor from VRBO, not Sterling Sands because it is very hard to deal with the people in the front office at Sterling Sands. Our condo was well appointed with everything you would need and then some. We enjoyed the updated granite counter tops all through out the condo and the stainless steel appliances.... More

We're so glad to hear you came back to visit Sterling Sands. Since you rented from the owner, you didn't get to meet my new staff and we're sorry we missed you. Sterling Sands as a whole has some wonderful condo options and we're glad to hear you found one to come back to. Sonya Cronin, GM Sterling Sands. More

When I arrived to this unit I didn't inspect the property and was not aware that I had to do so. When I came back home I received a email that I was charged $500 for a broken TV which I turned on 1 time and saw something in the corner of the TV but the image went away so... More

We are sorry to hear of your misfortune. Sterling Resorts does not manage unit 702 and certainly would not charge a guest for damages without proper documentation. I'm not sure to whom you rented from company or individual but keep them involved to better help you. Please give us a try on your next trip> www.sterlingresorts.com 1-800-264-3221. We manage the...

Wonderful news. Thanks so much for your comments and tips. I agree about the shopping tip and planning to leave early for local events during summer timeframes as traffic is always a factor here.

This place worked out great for us! It's not cheap for a 2-bedroom, 2-bath, so we came with high expectations... And we felt like it was a great spot for us!!! LOVED the view (would suggest 5th floor or higher to have less noise from the pool). LOVED the balcony access directly off master bedroom (one of my requirements). We... More

Our unit was a nice 2 bedroom on the 9th floor. It had a great view of the gulf which is why we chose it. Sterling Shores is right by Back Porch restaurant and the Candymaker so it's super nice to have a couple eating places within easy walking distance. The grounds and pool areas are clean. The elevators weren't... More

I stayed at Sterling Sands in the third week of June this year and had a wonderful time. I rented through VRBO which is great because the front office charges $600-700 more for the week and really doesn't have any extra incentive for renting through them. I rented 4 chairs and two umbrellas for the week and the beach staff... More

Wonderful news. I'm happy to share this with the beach service. Those guys/gals have an extremely hot and demanding job and do their best to accommodate everyone fairly and ensure the safety of others. They will be pleased to see your review and we hope you'll come back to see us again very soon. Sonya Cronin, GM 850-837-9444 Sterling Sands More

We just came back from vacation at 312 Sterling Sands Resort, we rented this condo from Oceanreefresort. The only thing good about this condo was the view, it was beautiful.

The Sterling Resorts staff and I are unhappy to learn of your discomfort in 312. Unfortunately, we do not manage that condo but we can pass this detail along to that company/owner so they can take action on the beds. We do hope you'll try our property again.

The condo & facilities were very clean & the beach view was awesome from the balcony. The condo was decorated nicely & the living room offered a nice place to gather after time out on the white sand beach & crystal clear water. We however had a few issues that others may want to consider before renting from Sterling Sands.... More

We are very sorry to learn of your issues-Sadly, we are at the end of a main road where the fire department sub station sits. We are happy they are close when we need them here but you are correct...it can be noisy at times. The beach service is not managed by Sterling Resorts but I will pass this along... More

We stayed June 20-27, great condo, right on the beach, the pool was very clean, very family oriented. The only downfall was slow wifi. close to Restaurants, water park, the Track is right across the street. We will return.

Thank you for the time you spent reviewing our piece of paradise. We apologize for the slow wifi--we find that the more people are on property with multiple devices running non stop-we do see a drop in the service area wide. We have sent that message to our wifi vendor to try an increase the signal strength during peak seasons.... More
