We stayed in a two-story townhouse that also had a queen pullout in the living room. The townhomes don't have the views of the smaller units, and their views are spectacular, so you may want to consider going with a waterfront if you can fit! But for our party of 4, we found the unit to be very functional and... More

Recent trip to St. Petes Beach. Hideaway Sands Resort was a very pleasant surprise. The friendliness and more importantly the cleanliness of the resort was very impressive. The resort is quiet and accommodating. If you want more "action" a quick walk to close by beach bars, or hooking the Trolly to many great restaurants and bars are viable options.

I spent a week here in unit 225 with my husband and two children. This location is quiet and relaxing and was just what we were looking for. Unit 225 is a small 1 bedroom unit that overlooks the most spectacular sunsets of the Gulf of Mexico. Although the units are small, it worked well for us. Our only complaint... More

We spent a week here between Christmas and New Years on a last minute exchange with RCI. The location could not be better - we stepped from our patio onto the sand of the most beautiful beach in the area. The staff were especially nice and accommodating and the rooms were exceptionally clean and well stocked. Our chief complaint was... More

I've owned two timeshare units here for many years. Gulf-front units are efficiencies and 1-bedrooms; ditto for garden units by the pool; townhouse units have 2 bedrooms. These are small, well-maintained apartments, complete with everything but the food! Best, though, is the staff - helpful, friendly and accommodating - and the gorgeous beach. Nice pool and hot tub. Everything is... More

The resort worked with us to move our family from a gulf unit to the larger unit. Everything was great and really enjoyed the trip. The new patio was nice and they continue to upgrade the resort. Looking forward to our next visit. They always go out of their way to make sure our trip is enjoyable. Went to Smileys... More

Spent a week at this resort. Excellent all the way around. It's not a modern upgraded facility, but it more then makes up for it with charm and location and comfort. The beach access is perfect. The atmosphere is very relaxed. Definitely worth a return trip.
