“Better Than Expected”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

Four friends made the trip to Siesta Key for a 5 day rest. The accommodations were exceptional! We had a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom unit, 4 television unit. There is also a den which could be used as a 3rd bedroom as there is a convertible couch. The first thing we noticed was how clean everything was. The space was enormous and the amenities completely up-to-date. Items like coffee for the Keurig were restocked each day. Access to the beach or pool were easy to use. There are cabanas available for use around the pool. We chose to go to the beach each day. Breakfast was provided. Most importantly, the staff was friendly, always helpful and generous with their recommendations and information. We loved the beach and spent as much time on it as possible. The only negative was caused by the daily, 2 hour rain which caused flooding of the entrance to the residence. This was, of course, not the fault of the Hyatt but it was a concern. There is no restaurant in the resort but the a many wonderful places to experience that can be found in Siesta Key or nearby Sarasota. If you wished to cook, appliaces were totally up-to-date - including a 6 burner Wolf range.

Wow! Spectacular property! Everything was 1st class at this resort. It is expensive but worth every penny. You really do get a lot for you money. What you get: the convenience of being right on a beautiful beach with chairs and umbrellas and no overcrowding, a continental breakfast (yes, it's simple, but it was better than I thought it would be), kayaks, paddle boards, kids activities, a 1st class room that is HUGE with top of the line appliances and bathroom that I only dream about having at home, and he friendliest staff ever! I feel like we really discovered a gem on this trip! We WILL be back! I was concerned about the flooding in front of the resort but it seems to be a problem all over Siesta Key. I would advise to wait a half an hour and he water will recede. No biggie!

My wife and I are going to be celebrating our 1 year wedding anniversary at the Hyatt Siesta Key... I NEVER stay at Hyatts because I routinely have bad experiences (Cleanliness, services, etc). I travel for a living and have platinum status with Marriott and Starwood. I tried to make a simple request to have something "special" done for us spending a few thousand dollars at their property and celebrating our first year of marriage. I have been put on hold for longer than 25 minutes waiting for a live person, then was redirected to a reservations agent who knows nothing about the property and kept quoting me price differences if I wanted to upgrade my room. I can check out the rental rates online, I'm looking for Hyatt to make a little effort to help my wife and I celebrate our 1 year anniversary. Siesta Key is very special to my wife, she grew up vacationing with her grandparents in Siesta. All I want is to speak with a HUMAN BEING at the hotel property. A manager, anyone! I am sick of waiting on the phone, being put on hold and being redirected. I am excited about the week vacation that we have planned, but WOW, not impressed with the ease of communication leading up to our arrival.

We had a opportunity to join family for a beach weekend here, it was very, very nice. The complex is a great size, I'm guessing about 50-60 units in total? The result is a place that doesn't seem at all crowded and is very relaxing. Probably is different during peak season, but I doubt this place ever feels "overcrowded".

There are many positives, the parking garage is great, the pool and waterfall hot tub/spa are very nice. You have easy beach access with towels, chairs, umbrellas all provided. The units are very upscale in every way, easy to get spoiled by the rainfall style showers, high end appliances, etc...very nice.

Overall, if you have the means, this is a super nice place to visit. It's expensive, but you do get a good bit for your $$.

This place is amazing. We spent hours at the beach, by the pool, in the outdoor Jacuzzi and chatting it up with several friendly members of the staff. The view of the gulf from the patio is relaxing and we often left the patio door open so we could hear the sound of the ocean when we were indoors. There is a complimentary continental breakfast until 10am, which was great, but we also opted to cook brunch one morning, which was amazing. (The kitchen is fully stocked with dishes, pots, pans, and pretty much anything you would want or need.)

There are only a few drawbacks--first is that the elevator is painstakingly slow. Also, I do not believe there is an actual restaurant or bar on site--so after the bar by the pool closes in the afternoon, you either have to head out or cook on your own. The only other drawback was that their "on demand" style movie option had only two movies--which seemed odd and very confusing. We were told that they had plenty of DVDs at the front desk that we could use for free if we wished--but we opted for our own DVDs that someone brought along for the weekend.

All in all, this place was nothing short of amazing. I would certainly recommend it to others.

Room Tip: The Gulf View is worth every penny.

My husband and two children and I just got back from a five day trip to the Hyatt Siesta Key Beach Resort and it was incredible! The beach was just steps away, right past the heated pool, with lounge chairs and umbrellas set out every morning by 8 a.m. When you have early risers like we do, that was huge! The unit we had was beautiful - two bedrooms plus a den, an actual dining area, a full kitchen, a real living room with a balcony that was large enough to fit a table for four, three bathrooms, and a stacked washer/dryer. It was nicer than our first apartment! The staff was very kind and welcoming, the amenities were excellent, and the experience was just terrific. We will be back.

We had a fantastic week at the Hyatt Siesta Key Beach Resort in August. Everything was top notch. The accommodations were huge, beautiful and so comfortable. The housekeeping staff (very reliably) kept the unit clean and stocked with laundry detergent and dishwasher detergent daily, as well as fresh towels and made beds. The beach and pool were both gorgeous and sparkling clean. The pool/beach staff were great. Brandon and Alex at the Cabana Cantina were great with the food and drinks! I had read that the front desk staff wasn't friendly but our experience was that they were so friendly and welcoming and very willing to assist with our requests. The breakfast was a great perk and the girl who works it also so friendly. The resort is amazing but the staff takes it over the top. We will return!!

Room Tip: Village view just ok - splurge on ocean view if you can
