“Have Booked again”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

My sister and a friend and I was booked at Sandy Beach Resort last year in Sept. It was excellent for us. We were next to an elevator because of our ailments. We stayed on the 5th floor and could see everything. Such a close walk to the beach and all the pools available. This was a wonderful time for us , now we are booked in May of this year when the rates are down and its not so crowded. Parking was a little problem as we had to walk across the street to park and it was usually full. We would not think of staying anywhere else. You are a 10

Room Tip: I think the 4th or 5th floor was good to view everything

We love the Sandy Beach for our family Weekend Getaway. The kids love the pool and being oceanfront is excellent as well. Plenty of attractions within walking distance. The rooms were clean and love the Suite style where the kids can have their own bed and bath. Great value for the accomodations and ammenities that they offer. Will definitely make a trip back here in the future.

Great value, service and location! Upgraded to the 3 bedroom this time and was very impressed. Front desk is always very accommodating for any needs my wife and kids have. Pools and jacuzzis very clean. My kids loved the lazy river - especially since it was heated! Keep up the great work...

I had a nice stay. The rooms look very nice (in the Palmetto tower). However, I could not get a good internet connection (despite being plugged into the wall). I also noticed several maintenance issues and wonder if things are being fixed or if it will just look worse next time I stay there. The hot tub was dirty all 5 days. Security always seemed to be on the computer in the business center.

Room Tip: the bathroom isn't connected to bedroom in one bedroom. Two bedroom is very roomy. Three bedro...

We have stayed at the Sandy Beach Resort twice, both times electing to stay in the newer units. These units are in the north tower with beautiful turquois tinted privacy windows. Both stays were enjoyable; helpful service was good, the units were beautiful, the early morning breakfast adequate, and the beach clean and inviting.

The property maintains a "drive-under" loading/unloading area, that is well-staffed with courteous personnel that are always smiling and eager to help with luggage transfer to the elevators.

Our one-bedroom unit consisted of a sleeping area, a living-dining area, full bath, and a lanai that affords breathtaking views. Cleaning services were provided on a daily basis, and their efforts make you want to leave a nice tip.

Parking at the immediate hotel is limited, and the hotel maintains a paved parking lot across the street from the hotel. This, I would say, is the only down side to this lovely property.

Room Tip: Units in the north tower are newer than other parts of the adjoined complex. This is the nicest, be...

We have stayed here for years and enjoy it everytime. It;s a good place for adults but maybe not for small children. Not all the waterparks and stuff to keep kids busy..It is straight across from the Family Kingdom and thats great. You can walk the new boardwalk to the pavallion and back.Easy and carefree walk.

i'm sad to say the pot heads and smokers dont care one bit that this place is a smoke free resort. my wife and i & the kids stayed last year mothers day week and the smell of pot and cigarettes stank up our room/balcony to the point we could not sit and injoy are view from the balcony, we had to keep our door closed most of the time, the previous years stay was the best *this was before the bike week thing joined the week we stay* now they jacked the rate up $20+ per night in one days time as we were just looking at rates this 2nd week in jan, last year we booked in march and no rate change due to bike week??? i called the front desk after thinking we would just deal with the rule breakers and reserve our room for the week, the rep said that the rates are now higher due to it being closer to bike week and the smoking is what you get with the bikers ??? oh really so why did the rates stay the same last year as late as march??? what a joke if you ask me, we as a family that follow the rules have to pay higher rates at a so called family resort and suffer all the noise,rule breaking pot smokers/cigarette smokers, the lack of parking with all the bike trailers taklng up the better parking places and loust wi-fi. dont bother complaining to management about the smoking they dont care but they make you think they do SMH this was a great place to stay mothers day and the whole week after, that was before the biker bunch came back or it was in our case. the value was the best on the beach front but it looks like our MB days are over at sandy beach resort, now we are trying to find a new place far away from MB and the biker bunch ) : oh btw we checked out other places and the rates have not gone up as of yet, just saying.

Room Tip: the 10th floor 1 bedroom deluxe is just about right our needs
