We visited Boca Ciega Resort from Feb 16th to Feb 23rd, 2013 for a week of sun on the Gulf before heading to Orlando.
My wife and I stayed in unit # 404, a charming 1 bedroom unit owned by a Swedish family. The Resort is situated right on Boca Ciega Bay, with a predominantly south west view, which produced some incredible sunsets, especially from our balcony.
The resort was very clean, had a nice pool and hot tub area and the other residents were quite friendly as well. On the Monday of our week there was a resort BBQ Meet and Greet, where the Condo board members provided hot dogs, burgers, salads and a cake for any resident who came down to socialize. It was a lot of fun and we met several other couples at this event.
When we first arrived, there was a nice bottle of wine with a welcoming note on the kitchen counter, which was a very nice touch. The unit was well furnished with pieces that fit perfectly into the surroundings. The unit definitley had a Swedish appeal to it.
We tried very hard to enjoy our stay here, but the overiding issue with this particular unit is that Bay Pines Blvd bridge traffic is no more than 200 ft from the building. Our unit was is the section of the building that faced directly into this traffic nightmare. Units in the centre or left sections of the building wouldn't face nearly the volume of traffic as we did. This, unfortunately spoiled our week at Boca Ciega. We couldn't really use the balcony because of the constant noise and actually didn't even want to leave the screen door open, because it was so loud.
So if you value peace and quite while on vacation, this unit probably isn't for you.
