“Perfect (almost)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2014

Just spent 5 nights at TSR on Siesta Key. Great location, just south of the traffic mess at the bridge to Sarasota. Restaurants, bars & groceries are within walking distance. TSR isn't technically on the beach but it's a very short walk. Beach chairs (nice touch) & towels for the asking. Nice grounds with a pool even though there are many properties packed together. Nice modern clean quiet room with a full kitchen. Very friendly staff. The "almost"? Extremely small bathroom (but very nice). Limited closet space. No private outdoor space with the room (Sorry, I don't like relaxing with a glass of wine by a parking lot). Here's the best recommendation I can give any property: we'd go back & without hesitation.

We were staying at a neighboring hotel, during which it rained most of the time. We asked to extend our stay for one more night, and although the place we were at (right across the street) could not accomodate us, Tropical Sun Resort was able to accept us (4 adults and a baby.) The room was spotless and most importantly, the staff was exceptionally kind to us, considering that we had a baby to tend to during the "limbo" time between check-out and check-in. Access to the sugar-sand beach is very close, and there is a little park next door which is very pretty. I would definitely stay here again. You don't have a view of the beach outside your window, but you are very, very close to the beach.

We were celebrating my wife's 40th birthday this weekend and were searching for a great getaway location offering clean and modern accommodations, amenities and easy beach access. Knowing most of the Gulf Coast resorts are stuck in the 60's with pink tile and rattan furniture overkill, we were very cautious to commit to an unknown destination for this occasion.

We found a gem in the rough.

The front desk staff was friendly, courteous and extremely helpful to ensure every aspect of our stay was addressed - often without request. They are very knowledgeable with the surrounding area and

The resort property combines three different motel grounds tastefully landscaped and renovated to spacious, private, modern era suites. Full kitchens, luxurious bedding, ample elbow room, permitted parking and a private paved beach access path to the perfect, white, cool sands of Crescent Beach are just a few of the attractive (and inclusive) amenities we experienced at this location. Your stay also includes beach chair and umbrella rental, the use of two pools and numerous, well-planned personal extras often overlooked by the bustling, larger resorts.

A grocery store, quaint restaurants and a convenience store is within walking/driving distance to ease the impact of those forgotten items.

After spending thirty of my forty years visiting Longboat Key, this has now become our new destination for "us time" and our family.

We stayed with our two young children for a long weekend and couldn't be happier. The grounds were peaceful, the service was fantastic, and the rooms were brand new! We live in Tampa, so this was a perfect quick getaway. The hotel provides beach toys, beach chairs, towels and just about anything you could need for a comfortable stay. the mattress was too soft, thats my only complaint. We are returning for sure!

Based on a prior recommendation from a friend and because we have never visited Siesta Key, we booked a room with the Tropical Resorts. Our room was very nice and the bed beyond comfortable. Floor could have used a mopping though. Overall our stay was very relaxing, quiet, and enjoyable. The beach was one of the best we've encountered on the West Coast vs. what we are use to on the East Coast of Florida. Still can't match the "blueness" of our water on this side. LOL
The only downsides were that the beach was a "further stretch" than we were led to believe and both the pools and chairs at same could have used a little TLC....kinda grimy and dirty looking. One other thing...look for nearest Publix unless you have more money than brains to shop at the Crescent Grocery up the road...expensive!!!

Just got back from a quick 2-day stay at Tropical Sun. We live in Florida and find it easy to do spur-of-the-minute trips when we need to relax. We quickly learned that the end of August is considered "low season" on Siesta Key - great time of the year to visit!! We were able to get a "manager's special" that was 1/2 the regular price. Tropical Beach Resorts is divided into 3 different places: SaraSea; Tropical Sun; Tropical Shores. We stayed at Tropical Sun in Rm 151- Sandpiper w/ King bed. All the units in our whole building were remodeled last December and are beautiful. I understand they have a larger unit, but our room was perfect. There was a small kitchen with granite counters and stainless appliances - even had an oven & microwave & fridge with freezer. The kitchen is equipped with plates, cups, bowls, glasses, silverware, coffee pot, toaster - you get the idea! There is a glass-top table with chairs (for dining), a leather sofabed with side lamps & coffee table and the king bed. The bath had lovely tile, granite counter, tub/shower, closet with mirror sliding door and a safe. Each unit has it's own A/C unit - great to be able to control your own A/C. The place is new & very very clean. The maids come every day and replenish your towels and clean the place - they do an excellent job and should be very proud of their hard work! There are 2 pools with lots of lounge chairs - one pool seems to have more shade than the other with beautiful landscaping and large palm trees everywhere. Then there is the private beach that we (and a few other hotels) have access to. They rent umbrellas and chairs for $12 for 1/2 day and $20 for a whole day. We passed a Publix on the drive in, but found the grocery store across the street to have everything we needed to stock our fridge. In the back of this grocery store they have a deli with homemade meals (ready for the microwave) - wonderful stuff!! We found the public beaches to be beautiful and clean - reminded us of Sanibel Island. They all seem to have lots of free parking - a plus for some areas in Florida! The small "village" has lots of restaurants to select from or you could take a drive to Lido Key or Sarasota. All in all we found Siesta Key to be very relaxing and this property to be the perfect place to stay!

We stayed here twice,and will again! Staff was nice and location to beach is perfect! The sand and beaches is second to none! The drive to Armand circle I believe it's called is short and worth it for the shopping!
