We strive for our guest(s) to have the most enjoyable & memorable vacations ever on Siesta Key Island. We are under new ownership and dearly love having our guests bring their pets with them! The new owner has the same pet policy in place as the previous owner did - $50.00 per pet. We did call this potential guest to... More

This hotel has just changed owners, and we stayed during their transition from Banana Bay Club to "Flip Flop Cottages." We loved our stay! Our party was a family reunion (44 people!), so we took up the whole lagoon-side portion of the resort. My family and my in-laws stayed in the Bay Breeze (3 bed, 2 bath) and we were... More

We brought our three little boys here from Ohio. Our visit was great. They have everything you might need in the adorable units. The grounds are great, like a little escape. The boys were more than happy to swim in the pool. There is a lovely deck that overlooks a lagoon that we fished off everyday and caught several fish.... More

We stayed at the Banana Bay Club - Waterside Cottages March 8 - March 15, 2014 for my son's wedding. After running into problems with our existing reservation, we found the people at the BBC to be very friendly and accommodating. We needed room for 26 people and our accommodations were great! We rented all 5 of the 1 bedroom... More

Me and my husband came down to siesta key and was finding it impossible to get a room. Our trip was very spur of the moment. We called various hotels and no one had a vacancy and if they did they were wanting 300 plus for the room. We finally spoke with someone who referred us to Banana Bay. We... More

Our family recently gathered at Banana Bay Club Cottages at Heron Lagoon and had a wonderful time. We stayed in Key Lime Cottage--very clean and room for the whole family. Our adult "kids" really enjoyed the canoe and I enjoyed fishing off the pier with our 21/2 year old grandson. The staff was friendly. Communications in setting up the reservation... More

We booked a 3 bedroom and 2 bath cottage at this property named the Bay Breeze. I will first begin with the interior of my... More

My husband & I had the opportunity to take a last minute getaway, so we headed to Siesta Key to stay at the Banana Bay Club again. We chose to stay in the Sand Dollar Cottage, it was a 1 bedroom condo offering a full kitchen, and just steps to the pool. We took the stand up paddle boards out... More

How can you go to this place and not become 'friends' with the owners? Dave and Gina are so friendly and helpful and we love to go to Banana Bay as much as we can. We love the friendly relaxed atmosphere and have recommended it to family and friends since finding it online. They have 2 locations and we have... More
