“An affordable Girl's Weekend Getaway, great location!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2011

I met 3 of my old college roommates and best friends for a last minute getaway to St. Pete Beach, and we stayed at the Sirata. The resort was a great value, and boasted of a prime location. The location was perfect, the beach was clean and nearly deserted (it was early Feb), and the hotel is located right on the main drag with shopping and dining close by. The room was clean and neat, we faced the street, next time I would request an ocean view room. We ate at one of the beach side restaurants on the resort and were pleasantly surprised with the food and drink, and the staff were always friendly and helpful. The heated pools and hot tub were a welcome treat as the weather at night was chilly when we were there. We were able to get a bit of a later check out at no extra cost just by asking. They do have an $8 a day fee to park your car at the resort which I thought was ridiculous, but other than that it was a perfect place for our weekend getaway. I would definitely come back, even with my kids, the pools and playground (along with the amazing beach) would make for a wonderful family vacation as well. I hope to be back soon!

You have to know how to speak Siata-ese before showing up or you will be disappointed. For instance Ocean front - means you are at the "Front" of the building that backs onto the "Ocean". Fine dining means go to any of the good eateries that are within walking distance - the facilities at the hotel itself are usually too busy shutting down early to serve hungry guests.

This is an old hotel that was once world class - really needs maintenance on the rooms (very old carpets, leaky plumbing, worn out furniture, over used pillows). Very strange room lay outs - the entrance door enters the bedroom, there is no washing faciliy in the toilet room so you have to wonder about the door handle, lots of sliding doors, great cross breezes - but noisy from the main drag out front

Great employees outside checkin - don't let the haughty attitude at the front desk discourage you from meeting and talking to any of the really great people that will work with you and for you at your stay.

There are a lot nicer and newer facilities, but obviously not at the prices of the Sirata - not my choice for a return visit

This was our second year staying at the Sirata and another amazing vacation! We came to celebrate our 25th anniversary and will have wonderful memories of it. We have had such a great experience both times we are hoping to return again next year!! We had a pool side room ground level this year and although the room was in excellent condition, next time we would book a room that has a balcony like we had the first year we visited. We really missed not being able sit out on our own private balcony! Our room had a kitchenette with everything we needed.There is a Publix just down the road where we were able to buy groceries. The cleaning staff are fantastic and when you need something they are right there with it. We accidentally broke our glass coffee pot and within no time they were there with a new one! The staff are all so friendly and will even take the time to chat when you are walking by! We enjoyed relaxing by the pool and swimming in the heated pool. It was the perfect temperature during our stay. I do wish they would consider free wifi in the rooms, we had family back in Canada we needed to stay in contact with. You can purchase wifi for a daily fee but it would add up pretty quick for daily use! With everything Sirata has to offer you will also want to return!

Stayed here during a conference in the area - front desk service is terrible and parking is expensive. The rooms were not at all nice (very 80s), but they weren't terrible either. It was really nice to have a kitchenette. The food at the two pool bars was excellent - really - and the pool patio and palapas and hammocks made me think I was in the Caribbean, not Florida. The area is gorgeous - the beach a few miles south is unbelievable! Who needs Cancun? The Sirata reminded me of the smaller all-inclusive resorts in Costa Maya (minus the all-inclusive part, of course) and the view from the pool deck, firepit and palapas is worth going back for.

We just got back from a 5 night stay at the Sirata and I am planning on going back next year too! We arrived at 1:00 from the airport, check in is 4 pm and hoped a room was ready as our plane left at 6 am so we were all a bit tired, it was!
The staff were so friendly and helpful. Gilbert was our server at one of the beach bars our first day and then our server at the Compass Grill for breakfast our last day and he is such a great guy, he is so friendly and a great server!
The pools were clean and the towel huts were well stocked, except at night, if you plan on going swimming at night, just take an extra towel or two to bring with you later.
The beach was so beautiful, the cabanas are nice, yet, I wish you did not have to pay $15 a day to rent one. You can sit on a lounge chair by most of the pools and have a pretty good view of the ocean while enjoying a cocktail. There is live music at both outdoor bars on the weekend and both of them have decent food and prices.
Our room was a king suite with a view of the bay, not the gulf. It had a fridge, sink and microwave so we went to the store to stock up on snacks, drinks, lunch and breakfast supplies to save some money. The room was clean, the bed was very comfortable and the kids slept on the pull out queen couch with no complaints. Housekeeping did a pretty good job, one day when we were in and out of our room alot they did a quick towel stocking only, I had made our bed quickly so they didn't feel the need to really make it, yet every other day they made the bed, stocked the towels and soaps, tissues, and even washed some dishes as others have stated. We had a rental car, yet rarely used it as many restaurants and stores are within walking distance, Publix, surf store, liquor store, CVS, pizza place, etc.
PJ's on 75th street was a good restaurant for seafood if you feel the need to head out for something more then the resort restaurants. Spinners, the revolving restaurant next door was a fun place to go for lunch for a great view and surprisingly good food and prices. I think you need to go early though as seating is limited because of the setup of the restaurant. We took a parasailing ride from one of the ones right in front of the hotel which was wonderful.
Overall, it was a wonderful stay, we loved it so much we plan on making it an annual trip!!

Based on other reviews, I thought the hotel wouldn't be that great...but because of the low price I had gotten, didn't really care -- just wanted to be on the beach. We had a pool-side room and loved everything about the hotel. Right on the beach for strolls & jogs; many pools; 3 places to eat on property; 2 bars; easy walking distance to grocery store and other restaurants. Sure, the hotel is a bit dated, but the location is superior. Hopefully we can make this an annual event! Recommend a jog to Pass-A-Grille! A worker did say this hotel gets VERY busy from Spring Break on. I don't think I'd go to this beach or area if it wasn't Feb (nice weather & resort was about 65% as full as Summer).

We arrived at the Sirata not knowing what to expect due to some negative reviews. We did not experience anything negative what so ever! The customer service is great - everyone speaks to you when you pass them, if you need anything someone is at your door quickly to help you. It is not the newest hotel, but it is clean, pleasant, and the location could not be better.

The beach is beautiful and wide - our young son loved every minute spent on it. The pools are very warm and clean. The king suite that we had met every one of our needs. You get more than you pay for at the Sirata and we will be going back.
