“Perfect place for a business-related stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2012

Had to come to Sarasota for a business trip and thought I'd stay out on Siesta Key to make it at least seem like part-vacation. Let me just say that I actually felt like I was on vacation the whole time! I couldn't wait to get back to my Villa each evening for a short walk out to Crescent Beach to catch the sunset each evening, then only about a 5 minute or so walk into the little town area for a cocktail at the local tiki bar (Captain Curt's I think it was called?) There were also some great little dining spots around as well, and a 7-11 for any last minute needs on the way back to my Villa! It was so cool to just be able to walk to all this stuff and not worry about driving. PLUS, I had a full kitchen in my unit so I could whip up a quick meal if I didn't feel like heading out. I'll surely be back for a non-business trip but just so you know, I have volunteered to go to any conferences through my job now that take place in Sarasota :)

Couldn't find anywhere last minute for short weekend
getaway but then we found 2 small units here and they had the exact
nights we needed so our group of 2 couples ended up hanging out by the
beach for the weekend and had a good time. It's very simple and casual
but nice and relaxing. We're hoping this can be our little secret escape
now on those last minute weekend trips we like to make every now and
then.

This was a cool little spot for our small family get-together, as we
all stayed together in units # 6 & #7 which made up a 3BR/2BA. You can't
beat the short walk to the really nice nearby beach or also short walk
the opposite direction to some small shops and restaurants. We normally
stay in larger corporate-chain condos or hotels but wanted the more
intimate feel of a little family-style resort and we go it

For 3BR's on Siesta Key, it doesn't get any better than our Villa # 6 & #7 combo for a 3BR/2BA that sleeps up to 10! OR, if you need more space, check out our 4BR/2BA combo of The Beach House and attached Studio Villa which sleeps up to 12! And for larger family groups, you can either rent out 1/2 the property for an 8BR/6BA set-up sleeping up to 26 or get the whole place which makes up a 16BR/13BA for up to 50 guests! Thank you!

This is my third year coming back to the Banana Bay Club Beachside and I can honestly say that this place gets better every year. It's fun to come and see all the improvements that have been made since the year before. The pool is wonderful, I love the rooms and having our own kitchen and being a short stroll from the beach. Our kids think of this place as their own personal resort and always love getting to know other kids that are staying there at the same time. We had so much fun last year that this year we brought friends and ended up booking 7 rooms! It's a great place to get together for a relaxed, hand out kind of vacation.

For Key-West style, relaxed, peaceful and enjoyable times, please try us at Banana Bay Club Resorts on Siesta Key where you can take a short stroll down to the white-sand beach, walk to shops/dining or enjoy fun on the water with our free use of paddleboards, canoes, kayaks and fishing dock on Heron Lagoon!

We enjoyed a nice quiet villa at this resort near Crescent Beach and we loved it! The pool was very clean and we grilled out almost every night right there. We already re-booked for later this year, thanks Banana Bay.

Our second time at Banana Bay Club Beachside Villas was even better than our first! The entire family, from a three year old grandaughter to her 88 year old great grandfather, had a wonderful time. Our family occupied a total of 7 units, # 1-7 on the west side of the property. Banana Bay is large enough to comfortably accomodate a large group like ours. Whether bobbing in the huge pool or enjoying renowned Siesta Beach, a few hundred yards away, we were all happy! Banana Bay has a laid back, family friendly atmosphere that is just what we were looking for. It replicates our favorite B&B resort in Key West. Banana Bay's amenities and its location has something for everyone. From free kayaking to a short walk to Siesta's famous restaurant and bar scene, our entire group was able to be busy enjoying every second. The units with full kitchens are especially appreciated as our family likes preparing big breakfasts and local seafood to share. We are already planning next year's visit. Thank you to the staff at Banana Bay Club Beachside Villas for making such a memorable time possible.

At Banana Bay Club's Beachside Villas on Siesta Key, we strive to make our place feel like home for all our guests, especially when a large family books multiple units! With the short walk to the beach, fully furnished units with full kitchens, decks and bedding for anywhere from 2 to 12 in each unit, it is a simple choice to try us out and see for yourself how great a vacation can be!
