“Terrible Place!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2013

The only positives were that the room was clean on arrival and the beach is stunning. However, the room was never cleaned during our two day stay, the buildings were dilapidated and the whole place was run down. There was a sign on the office door saying "closed for renovations" and giving office hours of 10.00 to 18.00 but as we were out during this time we never saw the office open and since we could not make contact with management on the phone, we were never able to use the Wifi. The price at approx US$205 (including tax) per night for two adults plus child seemed OK when we booked on the website but we then found that the local Hilton only about six miles up the beach was CHEAPER and included an amazing breakfast in the price. Sandy Shoes might have been great at some time in it history but it is now a waste of money when good quality hotels are available for less.

Room Tip: Do not stay here. Find somewhere else!

We had the pleasure of staying at the hotel recently. I could not believe how well stocked everything was. Usually when we stay at similar places we need extra trash bags, utensils, etc. We brought extra paper towels and coffee with filters just in case. The only thing I would say that we could have used more of were extra towels. We did bring beach towels, but when a family of four is swimming off and on during a stay you use alot of towels and they don't get a chance to get dry. The room was nicely remodeled and very clean. Our bed was not the most comfortable BUT for the money the place can't be beat. Beautiful beach and huge pool. We'll plan on returning next year for sure!!! We found the staff to be very helpful. They may not answer the phone when you call, but they will return your call in a timely manner if you leave a message.

How disappointing. I remember the blonde that worked there for several years that kept the property beautiful. The staff now is so-so. Tried to find out who the owners were. They must be new owners because all the hard work the blonde manager put into that place after the hurricanes has all be diminished. How sad. Dirty room, the pool was not so clean and it just does not have the friendly but private feeling it use to have.

Room Tip: Rooms are nice of course the oceanfront are the nicest and the most expensive.

We enjoyed our stay at Sandy Shoes Hotel,the whole 28 days. We booked in an efficiency which was adequate and very affordable. The pool and beach are steps away. The management and guests were grate. I can't complain about anything,and I'm looking forward to an other stay.

Room Tip: Check out there web site and talk to manager.

We stayed in #3 a week and found everything very satisfactory. A Publix was close by for groceries, the kitchen was convenient, maid service had to be requested, there was no security, office was only open from mid morning to late afternoon, pool was clean, beach was great, beds were comfortable, stackable washer/dryer convenient, two televisions. Our only complaint is there were no mattress pads on the bed and we felt that was unsanitary. We would go there again.

We rented unit #7 condo as a little get-away for father's day just to relax and enjoy the beach. We live right over the causeway but as most know it becomes an event to plan a trip to the beach. At Sandy Shoes the beach is your backyard! The condo was completely remodeled... clean, bright and very comfortable for the 4 of us. It had everything we needed. The pool was a bit too warm for us and needs resurfacing but we were thankful to have it nevertheless. The biggest treat was our nights on the beach watching the turtles coming up to lay their eggs. Absolutely incredible! In the daytime you can see them swimming in the ocean from the second floor of the building. We also saw a manatee swimming in the surf the first day there! What a treat this weekend was and we will be back when we need to get away again for some peace and quiet...after all we are lucky we don't have to travel too far!

We always heard great things about this place but I think it is either under new managment or it was sold. The rooms were very clean but very cold looking which is ok. The pool was disgusting and was never cleaned the whole time we were there. The tile around the pool was full of grease in dirt when we got there and remained the same when we left. The managment was very rude and lazy on the phone, at check in and when we asked if there was an iron. I guess there was only one iron in the whole place and the answer we got was, yeah I think we have one back there (did not bother to look) and then stated that she thought she already gave it to another room! She never even got up to see. No other explanation. My sister in law and my niece stayed there on 2 separate occasions and they loved it but that was more than a year ago so obviously something has changed. Too bad because it's an ideal place. Oh yes, we never go any fresh towels until the day before we left (left at the front door)
