“Very nice resort - Great Location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

Accommodation excellent. All the staff were very helpful. Plenty of good bars (especially Sloppy Joe's), restaurants and shops walking distance from resort. Stayed week commencing the 18th Nov 2012 when the sand sculping competition was taking place.

The service was excellent. Eva was friendly and helpful in making recommendations for local shopping and restaurants! I booked the reservation for a trip with my sisters and we were all very impressed with the room. The sunsets from our balcony on the 6th floor were spectacular, The pool was a large, heated saltwater pool, there was ample room for guests around the pool and on the deck. The hot tub was amazing! The kitchens are stocked with utensils, and they have a grilling area, so it was perfect. A grocery just down the street was very convenient. The location is such that you can walk to a finer dining establishment, or to McDonald's! The beach was clean and uncrowded and the sea shells were abundant! We were lucky enough to be visiting at the same time a sand sculpture competition had just taken place, so that was a surprising bonus!

From making the reservation till checking out, we received wonderful service from the whole staff.
Our room, on the 6th floor was excellent. The view from our balcony was great. The bed slept really great. The view of the Gulf from the Master B.R. was wonderful. The condo was very clean, and met all our needs. The convienence to a # of eating establishments, that you can walk to is a plus. From Ricky "T's" to Sloppy Joes, Gi Gi's Italian and the best, a few more dollars, but you should try Middle Grounds Grill across the street. Every bite was excellent.
The temperature of the pool was perfect and the hot tub was too! You have reserved parking for each room #. Anita and Eva was more than helpful from the front desk.
The least thing I liked was, if you drive a full size pick-up, maneuvering into and out of the condo, you have to be careful not to rub your tire/wheels on the curbs. I was very careful and succeeded in not having an issue with that. Other than that, like my title says above, we definitely plan on returning many more times.

Room Tip: There probably is not a bad room there.

This is a condo hotel right on the huge beach at Treasure Island. My daughter and I found our two bedroom unit to be clean and comfortable with a full kitchen, two bedrooms, living/dining area, and two full bathrooms (one with a tub and one with a shower). Each bedroom had a queen bed; however, we had to ask for that as some units come with one queen and two twin beds. (Several travel sites indicated all units have two queen beds, but that is not the case.) Kitchen was fully stocked with dishes, coffee maker, microwave, stove, dishwasher, and the refrigerator had an ice maker. All the units have nice and large patios that face the beach and include table and chairs.

Bathrooms include plenty of towels, hair dryers, and dispensers with soap, shampoo and conditioner, toilet paper and tissues. There were a couple beach towels, but we had brought our own.

Parking is assigned with one spot per unit and the parking area under the building is very tight, so be ready for some cautious maneuvering in and out.

There is also a very nice pool and a large pool deck with lounge chairs. The pool is salt water. It is located immediately below the patios and the sound carries up very clearly. We could hear every word of the two ladies in the pool from our fourth floor patio. The view is stunning!

Overall, we loved our condo for three nights Friday through Sunday. Service is good. The office closes at night and this is a condo, not a hotel, without hotel amenities. Shopping and restaurants are nearby, some within walking distance. John’s Pass area is about 2 miles north by car and fun for shopping and dining. The Middle Grounds Grill across the street from the condo is high end and the food was great. There was a singer in the bar area on Saturday night. You should make dinner reservations during busy seasons.

The beach is large and a good long walk across it to reach the water. In mid-September, it was not very crowded, but the weather was still hot. There was some rain. Beach chairs and umbrellas are rented by a vendor on the beach. We paid $30 for two chairs and an umbrella for the day (till 5 p.m.).

The Surf Beach Resort definitely met our needs and expectations. I liked it and would recommend it for anyone.

Room Tip: Check directly with the hotel for your bed size preferences in the second bedroom (queen or 2 twins...
