“GREAT PLACE WOULD GO AGAIN.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

I found this place on the internet, we live just 2 hrs. away so this was just a little short vacation for us. The resort was clean, quiet and very close to the beach. You just walk a short path to a private beach. We brought our own chairs and umbrellas - but they rent them there also. The hotel provides beach towels, and some pool toys by the pool area. The staff is very friendly and check in was a breeze. The room was LARGE with a king size bed, remodled bathroom and a full kitchen with all the supplies. I loved this place because it was quiet. There is not many stores around or restaurants, but you can take a FREE taxi - you tip the driver and SIESTA KEY VILLAGE is about a 10 min. drive from the resort. We went into the village one nite and had dinner there. I would stay again at this resort.

There are a number of resorts clustered along Sara Sea Circle. They are a little past the main beach area, so you are not with all the other tourists. The private beach is very nice. My daughter and I had a deluxe studio with two comfy beds, nice bathroom and a kitchenette area. Very nicely appointed. Beach towels and chairs and an umbrella were available if you wanted to carry it all down to the beach, which was about 100 yards long. Not long at all, really. If not, you could get two lounge chairs and an umbrella already set up for $20.00 charged to the room and I think $14.00 for 1/4 day - like if it rains. There were places to eat and a little supermarket within walking distance, coffee and tea in the room and in the lobby. There was a sitting area outside and the grounds were lovely. We enjoyed the place thoroughly. The beach itself could have been a little cleaner, but it was not really a problem. We will definitely come back. A very good value for the price.

At the last minute we booked at this resort. We have found our home at the beach. The grounds are beautiful with grills to cookout, heated pool, gardens and a short path to the beautiful Siesta Key Beach. Our room was so comfortable. A full kitchen with refrigerator, dishwasher, stove and fully equipped. The room was large with a dining table and chairs and leather couch. The bathroom had granite counters as in the kitchen area. The huge walk-in shower was great. It was extremely clean and with all tile floors, you didn't have to be concerned with what was imbedded in carpet. I don't want to say too many good things, because I still want to be able to book a room!! I highly recommend staying here. I hope you enjoy the stay as much as we did. Thank you for a wonderful 43rd wedding anniversary.

Room Tip: Parking is limited to one car per unit.

We just love this place, so quiet and relaxing. The palm trees and tropical bushes outside our unit were beautiful. The unit itself was well maintained and stocked with whatever we could possibly need. Housekeeping kept the place sparkling clean. Although not right on the beach, Sara Sea is close to the walkway down to it. This is the second time we have celebrated an anniversary at Sara Sea and I imagine we will be back again next year for out 45th anniversary...and probably many more mini-vacations in between!

Stayed for the first time in July of 2013. Perfect location in the southern part of Siesta Key, away from the crowds but near restaurants. Also, Siesta Key has 2 free island taxi services, so you're never too far from anything! Private beach access to perfect white sandy beaches... We had a king room in Shores, and we were near a pool but literally a 2 minute walk to the ocean. Everything was super clean, both in the resort and the room. The room was recently refurbished and was small but nice, with a granite kitchen and everything. We loved it and will go back on a regular basis!

Decided to take a quick trip to Siesta Key after my daughter said it was the best beach she had ever seen. Found this wonderful resort and after reading all the reviews booked for a week. The grounds are beautiful and well kept and the beach is just a short walk. Beach chairs and towels are provided although if you are planning on spending the day at the beach you night consider renting an umbrella. The rooms are very comfortable and quiet. The kitchen area is small but provided us with just about everything we needed. I didn't want to spend much of my vacation time in there anyway! There is a gas grill for each area of the resort, and every morning someone was wiping down the outdoor lawn chairs and tables. The staff is very friendly and helpful. I would go back.
