“GREAT value for Siesta Fiesta!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

As a Siesta veteran, I generally rent condos or houses and simply needed to extend a stay by three days. Sara Sea looked great online and I am HAPPY to report that it lived up to what I saw on various websites. Good price for the location and amenities - even though we didn't use many of them other than the pool and the refrigerator. For families I would imagine this is a DEAL with the courtyards equipped with grills, the stove, refrigerator, diswasher, etc. You could have all your meals there if necessary.

For us however, we simply took advantage of the free beach chairs and the short walk (less than five minutes) to the very best beach...and later the pool. Sara Sea is conveniently located on the "less" busy part of Midnight Pass Road, close to Stickney and short drives to Sarasota and Long Boat Key.

The rooms are nicely equipped, the beds are fine, we had a private porch to sit and enjoy the cool breezes later in the day and they even use Aveda products in the bathroom!! I would definitely return and will recommend for future Siesta Fiesta visits.

Room Tip: The Hideaway rooms are a bit small....but who spends much time there other than to sleep anyway. NI...

Pillowtop beds and everything was modern and well maintained in the room! The staff is welcoming and super nice! So glad i live in sarasota so i can come back to this place for my staycations! Awesome private beach access also. Can ask for anything more !

Rooms are spacious, clean and well appointed with everything you might need. We made use of the lovely outdoor area to use the grill one night and it was a great place to relax and enjoy some family time. The staff was very friendly and ready to make sure we had everything we need. There were plenty of chairs, umbrellas and toys to take to th beach which is a short walk away.

Having relied on other reviews, we decided to stay at the Tropical Shores Beach Resort In an effort to visit Crescent Beach on Siesta Key. We reserved the Sara Sea Destination Suite, unit #189 for May 12 - 15, 2014. When we arrived, the staff in the registration office were most cordial and welcoming. They provided maps and information that were extremely helpful. We were so surprised to see lemonade, coffee, cookies, other snack items, newspapers, and DVD's available to guests free of charge. The beautiful beach was virtually a few minutes walk and a very clean pool was on site. The grounds were well manicured and offered many areas for private conversation or reading. The suite we booked offered all the amenities one could want or need and was immaculate. I must admit, this property not only met, but exceeded our expectations. I would highly recommend this resort and would not hesitate to stay here in the future. Anthony and Alberta

Room Tip: The Sara Sea Destination Suite #189 was an end room and very private. It appeared to be very close t...

From checkin to checkout, the staff at Tropical Shores Beach Resort were exceptionally friendly and helpful. But we also love their rooms! This was our second trip, our first was during 4th of July and we had such a good experience, we decided to stay here after our wedding. As expected, the rooms were clean, pretty, and welcoming. We will definitely stay here again and I've been recommending friends and family to check them out as well.

Another great stay at Tropical Shores! Started going here 20 years ago as a teenager with my parents and continue the tradition now with my family. Rooms are upgraded nicely and you can't beat the friendless of the staff. Less than a minute walk to the beach (even with a cart full of stuff) and you are ready to relax. Wish we could have stayed 2 weeks instead of one but had to get back to work. Thank you Troppical Shores Team! Dawn you continue to keep the property running so well and hopefully we will be back sooner rather than later!

We've been coming to this place for several times and we just love it! Our room, as expected was very clean and comfortable. A welcome bottle of red wine was on the table for us- a lovely, timely gesture since we were celebrating a wedding anniversary. Of course, the staff didn't know this!
I love everything about the place- the environment, the staff, the beach and a gorgeous sunset if one is lucky to have a nice weather. We shall return!
