“A Getaway Week at Siesta Sands Beach Resort”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2011

My husband and I own a time share and was able to get a weeks stay at the Siesta Sands Beach Resort on Point of Rocks Road in Siesta Key. The grounds are well kept and newer stone work done, along with newer gas grills . The larger pool area even has an outdoor fireplace to night. The condo that we rented was a 1 bedroom and it was very spacious with two bathrooms, and a well appointed kitchenette with newer granite counter tops. The room was clean and furniture appointed was adequate.So it appears that this resort is in a stage of remodeling. In the bedroom , around the ceiling vents, the ceiling is coming off around the vent. Looks like moisture coming in from the A/C. But why would they not fix the ceiling when everything else is in good repair? The bathrooms are tiled, but old and need updating.
This resorts location is a plus, very close to the bridge to Sarasota / Siesta Key village and all of the restaurants, beaches and activities. The beach area is lovely at this resort, along with the two pools, grilling areas and recreation area they have . If you want a totally updated property, then this one may be low on your list....

Room Tip: If you are not doing an exchange , ask for the condos by the beach. Our room was next to the pool ar...

We were there August 17-20. The beach smelled terrible - like sewer. Condo had mildew in bathtub and on shower curtain. Toilet leaked. Closets were broken. 2" gap under front door that allowed noise to enter the condo. We were next to the elevator AND washer/dryer - how did we get so lucky?

Management was slow to react to complaints - too busy sitting in the AC to fix stuff. Contacted Management and they said they were going to get back with us - haven't heard ANYTHING. I would NEVER go there again. Sanibel much nicer.

Room Tip: Call and ASK if room is close to elevator, they won't tell unless you ask.

We stayed in the top floor 3 bedroom unit with our 3 yound adult children. The accomodations couldn't have been better and the staff was very friendly and helpful. The beach was all we were told it would be.

We rented chairs and umbrellas from the beachside vendor for the week and the only issue we had was when we had to politely ask two sqatters to vacate when we returned from lunch one one day. They had to make a snarky remark before moving on to someone elses chairs. This is not a reflection of the accomodations or the management but perhaps the offenders will see this and think twice before taking over rented beach chairs - or if they do, just politely move, don't try to justify your actions.

Siesta Sands was a wonderful "home away from home" for a week! Everything we could ever need was provided in the condo. The location couldn't be beat. Just a short walk to the beautiful beach. The staff was friendly. The condo was extremely clean. Didn't want to leave...but will be back!

Just returned from a fabulous week at Siesta Sands. The unit (410) was updated with classy furnishings, granite counters and top quality cabinets in kitchen, walk-in shower tiled with stone, and a VERY comfortable king-size bed. My teenager used the pull-out sofa, and had her own TV in the living room, and we had another flat-screen in the bedroom. We had tons of hot water for showers, everything one could need in the kitchen, easy access to elevator and laundry, a covered parking spot, and a balcony that viewed the ocean....not to mention a bird-eye view of the HUGE mansion being completed next door.
Siesta Sands is the last commercial condo bldg. at the south end....the rest of the area S of Point of Rocks is all residential until you get to the Turtle Beach area. There are 3 buildings, with rental prices set according to size of unit and distance to beach. We stayed in bldg. C, which is RIGHT ON THE BEACH front---how could you go wrong? There were two pools, top-end grills, an outdoor TIKI fun room w/TV, and a pingpong table. There was even a library of free book to read on the beach---borrow one, bring one!
Our unit also provided more books, 2 sand chairs, a VCR/DVD player for both flat-screens, and two lovely dining areas---one inside and one on the balcony. Nothing like sitting on the balcony in the am with your coffee/tea, browsing the internet news with the free WiFi, and enjoying the sights and sounds of the Gulf.
Our family has been traveling to this South end of Crescent Beach-Siesta for over 15 years. It is quieter that the Village area, and the beach is not as crowded. I love to be near the Point of Rocks, since the shell collecting and marine life there is new every day. If your prefer clear surf and shallow water for swimming and wading, this is the place to be. Many familes use this area of the beach, as it is suited for toddler, babies, tenns, and grandparents. We saw many extended family groups sharing vacation time here @ the S end of Crescent Beach-Siesta Key.
Siesta Sands units are typically rented weekly, but you can call and check to see if they have anything open for just a few days. The housekeeping and maintenance staff were quick to respond to any little items we needed, and Brian at the front desk does a great job of communicating all you need to know before or during your stay.
* just a note---the Elevator had a current inspection and worked great---not a problem as mentioned in an old review from one cranky reviewer. If you expect the Ritz-Carlton 5 star service, this isn't your style rental. But if you want a spacious unit with all the comforts of home for you vacation, call Siesta Sands!
Siesta Key offers plenty of fabulous dining opportunities, shopping, sight-seeing, and access to the bay and the Gulf. This is our perfect vacation spot for years to come!

We just left Siesta Sands Rm 208 after a 3 day girls getaway. The property was beautifully maintained(this coming from 3 girls in property management), the condo was perfect, clean, quiet and near everything. Brian and staff in the office were amazing, and helpful to every thing a guest might need, including finding a market for fresh lobsters for dinner.We loved our stay so much I am already planning another getaway in August with my husband and son. I have traveled to many places and stay in 5 star hotels, but to me The Siesta Sands Beach Resort hands down is the best value for a great getaway.

Please note there are two "Siesta Sands" hotels in Sarasota. There is another place called "Siesta Sands On The Beach" and this review is for "Siesta Sands Beach Resort"

We spent 5 nights at Siesta Sands and had a great 2BR/2BA condo (#409). The unit was "nice." Nothing fancy or lavish, but we weren't looking for that anyway. We just wanted enough space to spread out with our 18 mo old son. The pictures and virtual tour online were very true-to-life, so we knew the exact layout. We had a crib and high chair delivered to the hotel so our son had his own separate bedroom. The unit was stocked with nice plates and cheaper utensils and pots/pans, but everything was functional enough for us to cook several meals. The selling point is this property is definitely the beach. Literally right on the beach -- it was great. We spent most our time on the beach, so the location was perfect for us. The front desk is only open 9-5 Mon-Sat, and is pretty low maintenance. We didn't need them for too much.

As for the surrounding area, we've been to Siesta Key before so we knew we'd had to drive up to the Village for dinner every night, but it's only a 7-10 minute drive. There are some smaller restaurants closer to the hotel -- less than one mile -- definitely walkable if one wants to. But, really, I enjoyed the serenity and laid back attitude of the property. There were other families with small children staying there as well, so we felt quite at home.

Thanks for the good memories Siesta Sands -- we'll be back!
