We have stayed at Sarasota Surf and Racquet several times without issue. This time we were in Unit T1106. The unit could use some updating. Also the unit was not clean. Hair on bathroom walls and sand caked on floor by main door. I do understand there is a lot of sand coming into the units but for the price... More

I'm writing this to give a different perspective. We have taken our boys to this condo for 9 years straight. Over the past several years we have brought our parents, friends & made some amazing memories at Sarasota Surf & Racquet. We always have stayed on the 1st floor of the Y Building, it is the best you know. Trust... More

Our minimum age requirement to rent a condo is twenty five years of age. We have increased our security staff during Spring Break to try to handle these issues if they occur. We hope that... More

We just came back from a 6 day vacation at SSRC. We had not been there in years as we had chosen other destinations, so even though we were expecting a great vacation as in previous years, we didn't know if anything had changed. We chose unit T1104. We were extremely pleased with this unit. Whatever you were looking for... More

As a teenager my family would vacation at the Sarasota Surf and Racquet club every year. Now that I am older and have teenagers myself, I vacation at the Sarasota Surf and Racquet club. The rooms are great. They include a living room, and a full kitchen. I love staying in the D building because they have grills in front... More

Having wanted to visit Siesta Key for years and to finish off our 2 week holiday in Florida after the full-on adventure in Orlando, after research I opted for staying at the Sarasota Surf & Racquet Club.

One of the best places to stay at one of the best beaches in the world. You have access to a private beach that is already set up with access to free beach chair usage. The site has two beautiful pools, fitness center and an awesome place to watch the sunset! I would recommend to everyone
