Have been going to Sand Cay for over 20 years. Always a great getaway- nice, relaxing, gorgeous beach. Love the BBQ near the water. And a bargain compared to many other places, especially on Longboat!

As a family of six, it is hard to find a place that fits all of our needs. The condo was spacious and clean. The property was beautiful and clean, and the staff was friendly. Right on the beach with the same amenities as other high-priced hotels.

This was our first time at Sand Cay Beach Resort and we have been delighted! The location is wonderful, directly at the beach, with plenty of beach lounges, BBQ area, large heated pool and friendly staff!

This was our first trip to Sand Cay. I booked our unit on VRBO (Vacation Rentals by owner) instead of thru the actual Sand Cay office. It was a very nice condo. It had all the amenities. There are grills to use, a nice salt water swimming pool, and the management seemed nice too. It is mostly families or owners... More

We have stayed at this location the last two years and we absolutely love it. Nice and friendly service, quiet, and great prices. We highly recommend it. Close to the beach and the pool is ideally located right in the center. Close to restaurants and Publix. Great location!

Definitely one of the best units because of the private location and great views of the gulf. The kitchen has been updated. The rest of the unit is a little dated but is clean and comfortable. The beach is absolutely beautiful and quiet. No crowds here. This was our second stay and will no doubt be back again. We highly... More
