“Best Vacation Ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2014

I want to thank everyone at the Sea Spray Resort for such a wonderful vacation. We just got home last night and I miss it so much. The management team are all so kind and helpful with everything. Our condo was gorgeous #8 sand dollar. I have never been to a more beautiful beach the sand is so white. We would love to come back again next year if our finances allow and possibly bring a few of our grand kids because I know they would have a blast Thanks Bob and staff for a happy vacation :)

My family of 13 rented 4 condos at the Sea Spray resort to celebrate a special birthday. We were 8 adults and 5 children, ranging in age from 61/2 years to 7 months. We rented condos 5, 6, 7, and 8.
All of our accommodations were clean and neatly furnished. The manager, Bob, was extremely responsive. If we needed towels, glasses, or anything else, Bob got them for us immediately. When he was not there, Ann was just as helpful.
The pool is small but the children loved it.
The condo complex is a 5 minute walk from Siesta Beach, which is beautiful. It is also a 10 minute walk into town, where we were able to find good restaurants, snacks, and shops.
I would recommend having more dishes, etc. in the condos. Our unit only had dishes for 4 people, which presented a problem when we all wanted to eat together.....although I am sure that Bob would have magically produced more if we had asked for them!
We all had a wonderful time, and would definitely stay again at the Sea Spray.

Room Tip: All the condos we stayed in were comfortable - the 2 bedroom condos have queen size beds, and the 1...

We stayed at this resort last year for our wedding and with a party of about 15 other people who had their own rooms. Everyone loved their rooms, the pool and the short walk to the beach. We are staying again for our anniversary and I can't wait! It's a very relaxing and peaceful place near the beach. It is well worth the money for the quality and privacy you get. There is a free shuttle service you can call as well that will take you to the restaurants that's about a 10 minute walk away and just need a couple dollars to tip the driver. I hope to stay here at least once a year and would recommend it to anyone who asks! My friends and family are jealous we are going back. :)

We have stayed on Siesta Key before and decided to give this place try because of their attractive website. We booked almost a year in advance and were able to secure the Honeymoon Suite. The best thing about that is it's own Private walled Pool and Patio. The Suite supplies very basic appliances and dishes should you wish to make your own meals. It is not lavishly decorated and the furnishings are less than one would expect for the "Honeymoon Suite". The Resort also supplies a cart and beach chairs and umbrella should you wish to venture across Midnight Pass to the Siesta Public Beach. They don't provide any daily cleaning service or linen change (you're expected to take out the trash) but they will accommodate if you ask. The staff is very happy to provide. We thought it a bit expensive for what it was, but the quiet privacy was worth the extra $$$. Its not a resort in the true sense as there is no food service and the closest restaurant is a 10 minute walk but, Give it a try.

Room Tip: Some of the rooms have Private Patios

I have never written a review on Trip Advisor before but I had such a pleasant experience at the Sea Spray Resort, that I feel compelled to do so today.
Our family family of 4 (daughters aged 6 and 8) stayed for four nights from April 20-23 in Condo #2, Birds of Paradise. Our unit was clean, comfortable and spacious and included a full sized fridge, stove and dishwasher. The king sized bed was firm and comfortable. The back door of the unit opened directly to the pool area, which our water-loving daughters were thrilled with. This resort lived up to all of our expectations and was very accurately advertised on the website. It was exactly what we were looking for!
We were warmly greeted upon arrival and given a quick but thorough tour of the grounds, which were beautifully maintained.
We were pleasantly surprised by some extra comforts provided by this resort, such as the barbeques, hammock, pool toys, travel carts for the beach, beach umbrellas and beach chairs that were available at no extra cost. Since this is a smaller resort, we really appreciated that it was always quite private and quiet.
The beach was conveniently accessible and very tranquil as compared to the public area further down. It is most definitely a beautiful beach.
The only improvements that I suggest would be to have more cutlery in the unit (since we did prepare a lot of our own food and were using the dishwasher daily) and to have an outdoor hot tub on the premises.
We would definitely recommend this resort to family and friends and hope that we ourselves get the opportunity to stay here again.

Room Tip: Each condo is a little different in terms of size and layout. They are all featured on the website.

We usually stay at the other end of Siesta. Decided to try staying in closer to "the Village". We picked Sea Spray based on location. It turned out to be a great decision. We found the condo's to be clean and provided everything one would need for some time at the beach. The rooms are well equipped. Our's had a full sized refrigerator. Mini dishwasher and hot plate. The grounds were kept impeccably neat and clean and the pool was small but very adequate for us. Its a short walk to the beach which we enjoyed because it was less crowded then some others we had experienced. The property offered beach chairs and umbrellas which was great! We would stay again at the Sea Spray!

Thank you for your review. Our location is an asset to our property. Walking to the "Village" is definitely a plus. I like to say we are close enough to walk to the village but far enough away that we do not hear the music at night. The beach access across the street has no public parking so that section of the beach is always less crowded. We hope to see you again.

We stayed in Condo #3 by the pool. It had a fence that separated us from the pool which gave it a bit of a private feeling. Bob greeted us and was very nice showing us the facility and its features (fire pit, grill, pool, beach toys/ carts, free laundry and wifi etc). The rooms were very clean and had everything we needed. We knew there was no maid service so we were fine with that. There is a short walk to the beach and the beach carts that were provided with chairs and umbrellas were very easy to roll. It is much more private at our end of Siesta Key Beach as apposed to the public beach. The sand is just as beautiful as described in all literature. If one chose to go to the very busy public beach it is a couple minute drive. At the public beach they rent lounges and umbrellas and have concessions with food and drinks but it is verrrry crowded/busy there. We also enjoyed the village center. Initially we thought we wouldn't like it because it is very busy/crazy but we soon learned that you can elect to do the more touristy things or find finer dining, We liked Flavio's a wonderful Italian Restaurant. We also enjoyed the Turtle Beach Pub Restaurant for lunch out of town on the water near Turtle Beach. I would definitely stay here again.

Thank you for your favorable review of the Sea Spray Resort and Siesta Key. The beach here is 99% quartz. That gives it the white, fine sand. We appreciate you mentioning how clean our condos are. That is something we strive for daily. You bring up an interesting point. There are restaurants located through out the key not just in the village. Exploring what Siesta Key has to offer is part of the fun.
