“Perfect location for beach, food and entertainment”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2014

Depending on which of the many rooms you get you are either across the street from the beach or on one of the three pools. Also there are at least 10 restaurants and bars within 3 blocks.
Can't go wrong staying here.

Was really looking forward to this trip but didn't really live up to expectations. I found the staff in the front office very matter of fact and not warm or very friendly. One bedroom suite was ok good location by one of the pools but on opening the sofa bed found the last guest's dirty sheets on it and dirty offputting stains on the cushions, advised front office and told housekeeping had gone home and collect new bedding. Wish we has changed rooms because the pull out bed was very uncomfortable. Staff should try sleeping on this to realise how uncomfortable it is. Free continental breakfast a joke - coffee. juice and danish pastry!!. Good location to beach and bars was a plus.

After a great relaxing stay we can come to notice we were missing our dogs anti anxiety shirt. We called and found out it was tossed by accident. The manager was sooo sooo nice, she reimbursed us right away without question.

Super cute resort, A+

A short walk to the beach and next to shops and restaurants. I was solo so only had a small bedroom suite. The beach was beautiful. This hotel is actually about two blocks of different types of buildings and there are 3 pools.

OK, you have to read these reviews with the understanding that there are no four or five star hotels on Siesta Key. So, what may be considered "great" on Siesta Key may be considered "average" or even a little "ghetto" in another beach town. That doesn't mean that Siesta Key is the ghetto, it just means that it is mostly privately owned condos and beach houses, as opposed to giant chain resorts. That is both a good and bad thing.
Having prefaced the review with that, Tropical Breeze is adequate. It's not right on the beach, but it is only a couple of blocks away. And the public can just walk right out on the beach from the road, so beach access isn't an issue. Since TB is not on the beach, there are no 4-5 star amenities like beach lounge chairs or umbrellas. Although, there were two small beach chairs provided in our two-bedroom room. So that was better than nothing. The location was also very close to all the restaurants and night life, which was great. All-in-all, for Siesta Key, it's in a great location with super-easy access to everything you may want to do in Siesta Key.
The two-bedroom we stayed in was very small, but I don't think anything anywhere in Siesta Key offers "huge" places - at least that I saw from other friends who stayed other places on the island. Our air conditioner was bad. It cooled down at night, but the inside temperature rose during the day, no matter what temperature we had the thermostat set on. And one of the bedrooms was consistently about five degrees hotter than the rest of the unit. That's significant, and very annoying. The insulation in our unit was terrible. You can see a gap between the exterior door and doorframe. Maintenance checked the A/C, but nothing changed. The pool right outside our room was also very small, but other guests seemed to enjoy it.
The staff was friendly and knowledgeable about things like taxis (free on the island) and local venues. It's tough to say if Tropical Breeze is worth the money. I'm leaning towards "no". I think with room rates and taxes, we paid approximately $245/night for an August weekend (the hottest part of the year). Compared to other places I've stayed around the world, I would price that room at approximately $150/night. By comparison, you can get a ocean view room at a four-star resort in Miami Beach for $245/night in August. And Tropical Breeze is nowhere in that league.
The actual beach on Siesta Key is one of the best in the world. It's like walking on sugar. And there are plenty of good restaurants, daiquiri bars, and night life to occupy your time for a long weekend. I don't know that I would want to stay here for a week or more. Things might get cramped and boring pretty quickly.
On the whole, if you're looking for a four- or five-star vacation, I would avoid Siesta Key altogether. If you're looking for a lazy weekend with decent food, and if you have your own beach equipment, Siesta Key might be a great choice. Tropical Breeze is probably about is good as you'll find on the Key for anything less than a week. Three stars on this site mean "average", and that's how I would label TB. I saw lots of nice houses online and in the actual neighborhood, but they only rent by the week or month. If you're staying for at least a week, you can definitely find a nicer place (probably with a private pool) for a comparable (or better) price.
Long-story-short, TB is an average but adequate place with a central location to all Siesta Key activities.

This was our first time staying at the Tropical Breeze Resort. We stayed in the Beach Cottage which was adorable and perfect for two adults and one child (although two very young children might fit on the sleeper sofa). It was air conditioned (a must in Florida), had a full kitchen, fairly well stocked which would work for a longer term stay. The cottage is in a quiet neighborhood literally steps from the beach across one very quiet road. The beach is at the North end of Siesta Key so it's more private and less crowded than the main beach.

The cottage is farther away from the village than the main resort area, but still within a five minute walk. A grocery, ice cream shop, many restaurants and equipment rentals/excursions are all within easy walking distance. The resort includes three pools, several laundry rooms and bikes for rent.

The room came equipped with two beach chairs and fresh beach towels are available at the office. The bathroom was tiny and no frills but functional. My only suggestions or negative comments are that it is only comfortable viewing tv or relaxing on the 2 seater sofa. The other chair is an armless dining chair and not comfortable for sitting in more than 5 minutes. There are two bar stools at the kitchen counter but no table and chairs to eat at together. I would get rid of the desk and just add a table and four chairs to use as a desk and dining area. The coffee machine comes with prepackaged coffee pods that come in their own disposable filter holder. You can't rig these to create your own coffee and you only get two cups per day. The "grab and go breakfast" in the office is just coffee juice and pre-wrapped danishes like you might find at 7Eleven. We made our own breakfasts and had to go out for decent coffee. If you don't care what your coffee tastes like, you'll love the convenience of the provided pods and I'm sure more could be available if you asked.

The grounds are in the middle of being landscaped and should be quite pretty when it's done. There are crushed shells as ground cover everywhere to keep the amount of sand tracked in to a minimum. There are also a number of rooms being remodeled.

Other than that, we enjoyed our stay and would definitely consider staying here again.

We really enjoyed our stay here. All staff was wonderful. Sarah at the front desk was very sweet and helpful. The location was great. The housekeeping was great too. We all got a stomach bug and they did what we needed with a good attitude. We will come back here, although the resturants around weren't that great. We may drive to other places next time.
