“Great beach vacation!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

Studio room was great for the 2 of us! Full kitchen, nicely appointed with granite counters in kitchen area and bath. Resort has free movies, coffee, cookies and lemonade are complimentary! They offer free use of beach chairs and the private beach is at the south end of a nice sugar sand beach! Quiet with garden view and just a few steps from the beach!

Room Tip: If you don't plan to spend a lot of time in the room, the smaller studio was a great value!

Lovely, clean, well supplied rooms. Fully equipped kitchens, friendly helpful staff, great location. This is my second visit and I was not disappointed. The beach is beautiful and only a short walk from the rooms. The pool was lovely and had plenty of lounge chairs. Beach chairs and umbrellas are available for free, as are outdoor grills and dining areas.

Again, stayed in one bedroom (versus studio). As spouse and I have different routines, the bedroom door solves a multitude of issues. If you are more aligned with your travel partner, then the studio rooms are perfect.

We have just returned from an eight night stay with our two children 8 and 5 years old. Due to flight delays we did not arrive until 2:30 am. The resort however, was very well lit and felt welcoming even though there was no one around. An envelope was waiting for us with our room key and we were in our beds within a few minutes. The room was nice and very clean. It was great being able to walk out the front door and be outside. In the mornings there is cart with freshly made breakfast sandwiches and hot dogs in the afternoon. This was very convenient on our first morning especially. The resort has a relaxed atmosphere with a nice heated pool which our kids loved. There were beach towels, beach chairs and beach toys available which was great. There was fresh coffee every morning and lemonade in the afternoon. Our kids loved "sneaking" into the office for candy. The staff were warm and friendly and gave us lots of good info on the area activites. The grounds were pretty and very well maintained. We enjoyed the walk along the path to the beach every morning which is beautiful. Lots of good shells to be found in the morning too. We would definitely stay here again.

My boyfriend and I spent there a day only but it was very worth it to visit Siesta keys .
The resort was very nice. Clean and organized.
Our room was on the first floor , posh motel like. We had a mini kitchen, coffee machine, refrigerator and microwave ( it came very handy). /the gave us couple of fluffy beach towels and they had their own beach walking distance.The actual Siesta beach is a couple of miles away by car.
It was very relaxing, too relaxing!... If you are looking for some night life, don't go, every restaurant and bar close at 9:30 -10 PM.
It rain also so we couldn't enjoy as much the stay, but we chill out!

My boyfriend and I enjoyed 3 days at the Sarasea and can't say thank you enough to the staff for their warm care throughout our stay. The hotel was impeccably clean, organized and serene. Just steps from a heated pool, with plenty of clean towels tucked away nearby. The ocean is a 4 minute stroll away and the beach is gorgeous. We easily rented bicycles to explore the village and relaxed the entire time. We will certainly be back again soon.

stayed here for a week recently (march 2013). we would for sure go back and stay again! we had a room (room 166) that had a king bed, with a kitchen (that had full size stove, refrig, micro) dishes and toaster etc. were also provided. nice size bathroom with jacuzi tub and closet that had a safe inside as well. flat screen t.v. is on wall inbetween living room and bedroom & it swivels so you can see it in bed or while sitting on couch. the couch makes a sofa bed, however we did not use it so i can not comment on how the mattress was to sleep on, sorry. the mattress however in the king bed was very nice and comfy! this room was at end of property closest to the road & i was worried we would hear allot of road noise but we didn't!! there are 2 pools on the property. both are not huge pools, however neither were over-crowded while we were there & they keep towels at the pools for you to use which is convenient and nice. there is a grill you can use close to the pool & there are tables to sit at and use close by as well. threre are two laundry facilities on property one up front (where we were) & one in back of property. the one up front where we were was coin operated (1.50) each for washer and dryer. this was nice as well to have the ability to do laundry there and not have to go off property if you didn't want to. the maid service was great because all you had to do was sit your dirty towels & garbage out front of your door and they would replace them with bag of clean towels and shampoo/soap and new garbage bags which allows you to NOT be bothered if you didn't want to and if you DID want your room cleaned (like clean sheets, bathroom cleaned and floor swept etc.) then you could just hang your sign on your door for maid service. we really liked that!! one of the nicest things was the private access to the beach and the walk to and from was just relaxing and easy! you do not feel afraid to walk to the beach even at night. there is also a guy who has a hot dog stand so you can walk up and get a dog and soda if you want. the beach at siesta key is one of the best, we have been going for years. if you want to have a nice quiet place to stay and then head down to the siesta village for the night life and shops then this is the place to stay! the staff were all professional and answered any and all questions! you always see staff working on the grounds and taking care of things. Parking is a little tricky but manageable. check in & out was super easy. we like staying in siesta key because you have the beach but are close to downtown sarasota and not far from Tampa/St.Pete/Clearwater area! even orlando/disney is easy drive. lots of restaurants close by well worth trying. if you like fresh fish try Walt's! its less busy during lunch hours however after 5:30 be prepared to wait but its worth it. you can even go there and get fish to take back to make on your own if you like or get a to go order. enjoy your stay at Tropical shores and the Siesta Key/Sarasota area!! we always do!

Room Tip: plenty of rooms to pick from for your size family and needs.
