My wife and I just stayed at Sandy Shores in Madeira Beach from April 13 - 17, 2015. I have read several reviews dating back a couple years. As with most reviews they are mixed. Obviously it is impossible to make everyone happy all the time. Everybody has their own agenda. I'm not the easiest or the hardest person to... More

Stayed in a Gulf front one bedroom in February 2015 and found everything about Sandy Shores to be perfect. The front desk ladies Linda and Dana were very helpful with any questions to be answered. Infact we have already booked for 2 weeks for next January 2016 and are anticipating that vacation. Our small dog also enjoyed the stay while... More

Well I chose Sandy Shores for it's location on the beach. And the beach is lovely. Now, on to the rest. The condo was comfortable and nicely appointed. I have already addressed my minor concerns directly to the condo owners. Sandy Shores on the other hand has some issues that I'm sure they are very aware of, extremely slow elevator... More

so my husband and I decided to give Sandy Shores another chance, since we love Florida Gulf and the views, pool and beach. We were impressed this time......they painted the outside of the building, resurfaced the pool, redid the pool area, they made some very nice changes. WE got an oceanfront room (501), it was much cleaner this time than... More

We have stayed here for years. The view is absolutely wonderful. It is so convenient with the pool and the beach right there and can't forget about all the shopping across the street. At times the rooms could be cleaned better and the elevator is so slow. I will tell you though, you won't be sorry you stayed here.

We stayed in Condo #302 which was beautifully decorated. It was the only condo with an outdoor fan on the balcony. Nice furniture, very comfortable. Great location, beach front overlooking the pool. Easy access to many restaurants and shopping in nearby John's Pass, where we also rented jet skis. Yes, the elevator is a little slow, but we weren't in... More

We stayed in unit #502. The unit could have used a good cleaning between visits as the floor turned the bottoms of our feet black. It has one of the worst elevator systems that I have ever seen. There is just one elevator and it is extremely slooowwwww. There were many times that we just took the stairs from the... More

We stayed in unit #201.Thank goodness because the elevator system is little to be desired.We used the stairwell slot, which is very secure but you must have your key at all times.Is needed to get in and out of pool area and access to the beach.Upon arrival I was not pleased with the cleaning condition of the condo, not very...

My family of 4 came to Madeira Beach for a full week and stayed in #303 at Sandy Shores. The best part of the place is the location- Right on the beach and directly across from the Johns Pass shoppes & restaurants. We rented 2- beach chairs with a large blue umbrella for $110.00 for the entire week. It was... More

Never ever again! My family and I stayed at the Sandy Shores from 6/29/14 - 7/6/14 in unit 411. The room was nice, but the A/C filter was filthy, making the room hotter than usual. We booked through I-Trip and had a computer print out of our parking pass. There was not a problem until Wednesday when we received a... More

This person was booked through an independent booking agent for a week's stay during the 4th of July week at our property. We do not manage the property they stayed in. During this time we have strict guidelines regarding the number of people allowed in a room and also issue wristbands to the guests that security strictly enforces. We do... More
