Although the sunsets and the beach were beautiful, our short stay in W502 was not up to the standard expected for the price paid. From the moment we walked into the unit there was a strong, unpleasant smell in the unit which never subsided the three days we were there. Knowing we were in Florida, you expected to see some...

We stayed with our family at Christmas for a week and had a wonderful time. We came back in Feb for one week and ended up staying three. Everyone was so friendly, our condos had everything we needed and we were right on the beach. The tennis was fabulous and the sunset cocktails made the day complete Can hardly wait... More

The outside of the property is beautiful. The elevators are very hot. Good luck getting a turn using the laundry. There is one washer and one dryer on each floor. We stayed in Y508, it smelled musty, there were no blinds on the windows in the lanai. The water pressure was just terrible. We could hardly rinse our hair in... More

Enjoyed another week at SSRC. Beautiful 2 bedroom condos, individually decorated and each with a water view and steps to the powdery white sand beach. Secured property. Have not visited a more beautiful beach in the US. Of course there is no guarantee on the weather but we were fortunate to have 80 degrees and sunny every day! Will definitely... More

Sarasota Surf & Racquet Club is one of our favorite places in the world! I have been coming here every Thanksgiving for over 20 years with my family and we have visited a few other times throughout the year.

With all the cold weather and snow we were experiencing, we eagerly awaited our winter break for a family reunion at the Sarasota Surf and Racquet Club resort and were not disappointed with our stay there. At first sight royal palms and lush tropical vegetation line the entrance to the property and created a wow factor for me. At the... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Sarasota Surf and Racquet Club. Our unit was #203 in the C building. It was just as pictured online if not better. It had a great beach house feel to it and it was spotless. The lazyboy recliner and sofa were perfect after a day at the beach! There was more than enough... More

We enjoyed our stay at this lovely resort right on the beach. The staff was helpful and accommodating. Accommodations can be checked on the internet. The condos in the Y building are closer to the beach. We plan to return. The Caseys

We loved our stay at the Sarasota Surf and Racquet Club! The condo was exactly how it showed online! We had a fabulous view of the ocean and beach from our 5th floor condo!

Loved everything about the Sarasota Surf and Raquet Club during a 5 night vacation with my sister and mother January 20-25. My parents have been vacationing at SSRC for many years and they always quietly noted how nice a place it is.
