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

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

We stayed in Unit 303 with our Friends over the long Thanksgiving Weekend. The Condo was really nice & the location is perfect. Beautiful Sunsets every night & right across the street from John's Pass. Plenty to do, we even did some Black Friday Shopping right in the stores in John's Pass. The unit has a full kitchen with marble... More

I wouldn't stay here again. Rooms need a better cleaning. There is only maid service in between customers' stays and it isn't very good. Came into my room and found dog food still on the floor from previous renter. Pulled back covers on bed and found lots of hair. Room also smelled like dog. Dogs are allowed on premises if... More
