The beach here never disappoints and we usually stay in unit #24 but it wasn't available so we had to stay in #16. It is located on the south side of the property next to the public beach. Although there is a great greenery buffer between, our beach towels were stolen off the chairs outside our door. Just an FYI,... More

My family of 4 stayed here for a long weekend and had a great time. Great location, walkable to a couple of good restaurants an ice shop and a little store. Our unit had a small kitchen but the best part was tables outside and a grill perfect for us to grill some steaks and shrimp for dinner. The beach... More

I have finally started to give my reviews to local places that we frequent often and this is one of my favorites, especially since we had our wedding here (5/18/2013). I think our wedding was a catalyst to advertise this place as more of a wedding destination...and it is so worth it!! I remember there was a man walking around... More

Nice rooms, clean, friendly helpful staff. Good location, right on beach with good restaurants and shopping nearby. Good parks for nature viewing and most pleasant walks. Close enough to major airports, conviently located.

Highly recommended, would send anyone I know here. Super friendly and super clean. I liked the location because it was right on the beach, I liked the decor because it was interesting and clean. Go here!

This place is a no brainer! Book it now you won't be disappointed. Fantastic beach, great boat slips and the canal in Sarasota bay was awesome. They boys loved swimming in the canal and jumping from the bridge, the water is soooooo clear. Great fishing from the dock and bridges and a trip to snake island is always fun. We... More

Right between the beach and the bay - what could be better. We fished, swam in the pool, walked the beach, toasted the sunset, kayaked plus so much more. The deck overlooking the water was awesome. We watched a mantee make his way through the canal and caught fish off the dock.

We stayed in room 12 and 15 during our visit. Both rooms were wonderful with a beach view. Complex is very nice, beach is close walk from all the rooms. I would recommend A Beach Retreat to anyone. Area is nice with good restaurants also. Staff was very helpful. We will be returning!.

The location is good. The overall property is reasonably nice. The exterior maintenance is okay. The interior maintenance, however, leaves MUCH to be desired. A/C units choking from filters with 3/4" of dust accummulation, hit ot miss maintenance, minimal cleaning, mold in the shower, filthy sliding entrance doors, etc. This prpoerty is simply "just okay" - maybe a 3 star...

Had a great time and we will be back! (Nothing against the hotel, but I do not like that Tripadvisor requires you to put an entry here. Forces you! Just saying.) ................................................
