“Surprisingly Awesome!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2010

Crescent Beach is incredibly beautiful! I have been to the best beaches in Hawaii, Caribbean and Philippines, Crescent Beach is surprisingly a paradise in Florida! Its very fine powdery sands are gorgeous and non-irritating to my 1 yr old son who loves to play and feel the texture of the sands. We loved to walk daily along the Crescent Beach which can be 1 hour stretch. The Crescent Tower beachfront location is undeniably great! It is very convenient if you have kids since the unit is literally 5 steps out of the beach. It is a vacation rental home. However, their amenities are fair. They have a bath towel exchange only on Tuesday and Thursday morning and linens exchange on Thursday. So if you miss it, you'll just have to wait for the next exchange. They also do not provide beach towel. The heated pool at that time is not really heated. For the one week that we stayed in, we only used it once on a sunny day in Siesta Key which is very unfortunate because we stayed on the last weekend of December til January with 30-68 degrees temp. But they told us we can go to the neighboring pool while they're fixing it. We also use their grill almost every night. Parking is free and just outside your unit. Unit #31 has cookware and utensils but does not have a dishwasher. It has 2 TVs with cable.The decor is outdated. If you're looking for a posh place, this is not the unit for you. I believe each unit is different. Overall, we got the biggest bang for our buck with its beachfront location. I will definitely come back here again!

First of all Siesta Key has the most beautiful beach I have been too in the States. Crescent Towers is on a wide section of Crescent beach. The individually owned condos are very clean and each one is furnished differently, depending on the owner. They are efficiencies, not apts with a separate bedroom, but they have plenty of space. I stayed on the second floor of the two story gulf building. The living room looks out over the beach and gulf. You can sit on the sofa or your screened lanai and see the gulf or watch the incredible sunsets. Each condo has a full kitchen, complete with everything you need. There is a pool, shuffleboard, grills and picnic tables between the gulf front building and the poolside building. Crescent Towers is a great bargain. You can see each unit on their website. The ladies in the office are very friendly and will give you advice on where to dine, etc. They have a small lending library in the office and rent DVD's for $1.00. This was our fourth summer going there and we have already booked for next summer. It is very laid back and restful and close to shops and restaurants. It is a short drive to the village or across the bridge to malls, more restaurants and movie theaters. You do need to provide your own beach towels and umbrellas. They have lounge chairs if you do not want to go all the way down to the water. If you wish to sit near the water, then you must bring your own chairs. We purchase whatever we need at the Walgreens, Publix or beach store over the bridge on route 41. You will enjoy your stay here.

Crescent Towers on Siesta Key is a hidden treasure. It's directly on the Gulf with fantastic views from each balcony. There are 2 buildings. We stayed in the gulfside building. The other building is not facing the Gulf but it's steps from the beach with no road to cross. I believe that each unit is individually owned. We were in unit #2. It was spotless and looked like it had been recently remodeled. It had a large flatscreen tv and a great balcony. If you stay in a first floor unit, you walk out your door onto a lanai and into the sand. Take an umbrella as there is very little shade. It's close to the bridge that takes you over to Sarasota. Across from Crescent Towers are some small stores and restaurants. It's a short drive to the village. Crescent Towers gets an A+!
