“Absolutely Awesome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

All positives ... no negatives ... facilities very well maintained ... our 2 BR / 2 Bath condo was very clean ... every member of the staff were super friendly, always asked if there we needed anything and made you feel like they really cared and wanted our stay to be a happy experience.... my wife and I are on day 7 of a 11 day stay - the condo, management, staff and area are so great - we do not want to leave. Whenever we come back to this area, we want to stay HERE AGAIN and AGAIN and AGAIN... :) :) :)

Oh yea, I jogged 5 to 6 miles on the beach every day.

Room Tip: Our condo is #401, 2BR / 2Bath with a beautiful view of the beach & Gulf ... if available, we wo...

My husband and I stayed at South Beach for our 25 anniversary getaway in Dec. 2012 (our first trip to the beach) and we loved every minute of it! Our recently renovated condo on the 5th floor was perfect. Very comfortable (the bed was awesome!), beautiful view, quiet and had everything we needed. We were looking for a quiet, low key, vacation and this was the perfect place for us to kick back and relax. There wasn't daily housekeeping service which we didn't mind at all. Big bonus was being right on the beach. Its a little bit of a walk to the water, but definitely not a deal breaker for us. Only drawback, if you can call it that, was construction going on right out back on the new walkway that's going in. But that's only temporary and will be great once its completed. Plenty of restaurants around and grocery stores if you want to fix your own food and Johns Pass is just down the road a little ways. We're already talking about bringing our kids back with us the next time and are looking forward to our next visit. Love Love Love it!

Room Tip: Choose a room higher up for a better view and ask for one of the remodeled rooms. The room numbers...

As last year, the condo was clean and comfortable. The staff is always pleasant and helpful. The view is breathtaking and worth every penny!! We visit many beaches north and south and have yet to be disappointed. We will be back 2014..

We spent 10 very pleasant days at South Beach in March 2012. The condo was clean, bright and nicely furnished. The view of the beach and the Gulf was spectacular. Restaurants and grocery shopping are all within walking distance. Staff was very friendly and helpful. We were having friends for dinner and asked whether we could borrow some extra plates, cutlery and serving bowls. Shortly after our request more place settings than necessary were brought to our unit. We needed to print our boarding passes and Marcia (and her bird) stayed after her shift ended so that we could do so. We were so please with our experience that we've booked another 10 days this year.

Room Tip: Three units in the building don't have dishwashers-so confirm that one is available in the unit...

Absolutely a wonderful place to stay. Great location, just steps to the beach, close to restaurants and other places. The property is very well kept and the staff was very pleasant and helpful. The view from the condo was perfect. The condo was very clean and beautifully decorated. Great stay and we will be back.

I hesitate to write this review, because if everyone finds out what a great jewel this place is, there may not be any vacancy next time I try to book. But this place, and the sister condo/hotel, Surf Beach (about 500 metres away in Treasure Island) are amazing deals.

The condos are clean, gulf front, perfectly appointed with everything you would expect of a condo, and they are both run impeccably well! The few negative comments I have read in these reviews seem to have been written by people who mistakenly thought they were renting hotel rooms. A condo means that you don't have daily maid service...duh! But what you do get is an amazing, clean condo, with a complete kitchen, washer dryer, and everything you need for a week, including dishwasher soap, laundry soap, shampoo and conditioner for a week, etc. They even leave beach chairs and toys for you if you want to spend time on the beach, instead of the pool.

We almost made the mistake of booking at a few of the St. Pete's Beach "resorts". We were so lucky that we didn't. On a cooler day we drove down and checked out the Sirata, Don Cesar Suites and some others. They are far inferior and charge a bundle more, usually for no Gulf view, very bad smells and cheap furniture, lesser amenities. Every single suite at South Beach and Surf Beach has an amazing Gulf view! And the only thing that seems to define a "resort" would be the "resort fee". This fee, charged by more and more rip-off artists is a scam! They want to advertise lower prices and then add another fee after the fact. The Sirata and Don Cesar charge about $25.00 per day for NOTHING. The "services" that they purport to charge for are already included in any normal hotel charge, but the honest ones just advertise it up front as part of the price. We should all simply boycott the resorts with "resort fees" and let them know...maybe this theft would stop.

But enough of the rant, just book this place and enjoy. Oh yeah, one more thing....if you read the reviews about the long walk across the beach to the Gulf of Mexico....it's true. And anyone who couldn't check Google Earth or look at the maps and know in advance that there is an amazingly large beach in front of this resort ought to stay home and learn how to use the technology available to help them get the vacations they want....and they also ought to go out for a walk now and then in order to get in sufficient shape to walk a few hundred years without cardiac arrest.

Room Tip: go higher for better views
