When we arrived, the front parking lot was closed off due to resurfacing so we had to park behind and enter by the pool.

Great location,great staff and great facilities. Ideal for a few days in Sarasota and Siesta Key. Siesta key is a few minutes by car and walkable for the fit. Good selection of restaurants to suit all tastes. Lots to do in Sarasota.
