This is a great location for a Siesta Key beach experience. The beach is flat, easy to walk/run and to enter the ocean. The ocean temperature in mid-June was very warm and the waves were mild making the water easy to enjoy especially for elderly and children. I highly recommend reserving tents and umbrellas from the guys at Tropical Beach... More

You can't beat the location of these condos! Having access to the private beach makes a huge difference...the public beach is absolutely PACKED! I've never seen so many people on the beach and in the ocean than when we walked along the water and made it to the public beach. The pools are nice...the bigger one (main pool) is a... More

We've been coming to SSRC on and off since 1990! Our most recent stay was June 2015. It is as gorgeous as I remember! The apartments have all been remodeled. We love this property! It is the closest to the beach of all of the beach condos on Siesta Key. It has two pools and great barbecue areas that look... More

We literally had the best time at the SSRC. The place was nothing short of amazing. Our Unit was very clean and well kept as we noticed that upon arrival.

We have been coming to Siesta Key for 30+ years and have always stayed at SSRC. Our whole family usually comes so we have a minimum of 3 condo's. We always stay in the Tower unit and try to get units relatively close to each other. We have stayed in T1201 several times and while the views are breath taking,... More

Our family of 4, myself, husband and 2 daughters, 23 & 21. We stayed in the T806. We picked this unit because of the 2 beds in the second bedroom and the decor and loved the location to the pool and beach. The pool being at the beach is one of the main reasons we chose this resort. It was... More

We stayed in T1007 for six nights. This condo was perfect for our needs. 2 adults and 3 children. The kitchen had a coffee pot, updated dishwasher, oven, fridge.

I believe this was our 5th visit to SSRC in the past 4 years. Only two complaints. Parking can be a problem if staying in the Tower Building and 10 days was not enough. We have in the past flown to Tampa, rented a car and driven down to SSRC. This Spring, we flew into Sarasota, others in our group... More

As a family, we've stayed at SSRC on an almost annual basis for over 10 years. The beach is undeniably beautiful. Siesta Key and the surrounding area are tourist and family-friendly. We've never had a bad time on Siesta Key. However, this year we noticed a less-than-hospitable attitude among the SSRC staffers in the office. They displayed no enthusiasm for... More
