The building does not look like much from the exterior, but the room we stayed in was newly renovated and nice. The grounds are beautiful and tropical and the beach is a very short walk. Negatives are no restaurant on property or decent once within walking distance. Also, the waters is great, but the beach itself is very crowded as... More

My friend and I went away for a short girl's trip. The place is perfect. The location is great, the beach is the best on the key, with beautiful white sand and clear blue water. The amenities suited us perfectly, with full in room kitchen, grills, beach chairs, pools, and bike rentals across the street. The suite was nice, with... More

Great location at Siesta Key. It's a short 5 minute walk from the room to the beach and the breach is great! Outdoor spaces like complementary propane grills and patios were really nice. Cons: parking. Only 1 spot per room. You can purchase a guest pass for an additional spot but its pretty expensive. The pools was closed for repairs... More

As a Siesta veteran, I generally rent condos or houses and simply needed to extend a stay by three days. Sara Sea looked great online and I am HAPPY to report that it lived up to what I saw on various websites. Good price for the location and amenities - even though we didn't use many of them other than... More

We stayed for a long weekend for Mother's Day. The room was small, but it was just my daughter and myself. Time was spent on the beach and out on the town, so we don't spend much time in the room anyway! The beach was beautiful, not too crowded and very peaceful. The staff were all amazing! Anything you needed,... More

Can not say enough good things about this resort! Where to begin?! Well, the staff was very friendly and helpful...always took care of any needs/requests and gave great advice on spots to eat and things to do. The grounds are very well kept and the place is beautiful. Another reviewer referred to the "park-like setting" and that absolutely nails it.... More

We checked in on a Friday. Called from airport at 11:30 and were told they would have a room ready for us when we got there, and since check in was late in date, we were very happy with this. They had a room ready for us when we got there at Tropical Sun building. It was very clean, but... More

Yeah the "park" with shuffleboard and the heated pool was really nice. We also liked the "old Florida" style one story buildings. We stayed directly across from the heated pool but also just a short walk from the No. 1 beach in the US. Check-in was simple and the coffee at the office was available most all day. Try the... More

We stayed in the Boutique room at Sara Sea and were very happy with the hotel. It was spotless and the bed was very comfortable. The best part is that it's only a short walk to the private beach. However, they had a pipe burst in the room next to us and they were doing demolition work early one morning... More
