Just returned from five days at Sheraton Sand Key. Clearwater Beach is our favorite vacay in FL. Sheraton Sand Key is across the bridge out of the mainstream but close enough to walk to attractions. Or take the free Trolley. No parking fees or Resort Fees to disgust guests the pool area is great, beach spectacular and fairly private. The fire pit at night was great for socializing. Great facility and staff. Want to give a shout out to Karen at the front desk for her spectacular service and helpfulness

There are a lot of things to like about this hotel. Location is #1. You cannot find another hotel on the beach as good as this one. Restaurants serve really good food. Housekeeping, front desk, and restaurant personnel are well trained and provide exceptional service. Restaurant food, at the bistro, the bar, and the pool area is really good. Now, the facility has been around for a while, but rooms are extremely well furnished. Modern furniture and appliances. Walls are a little thin and you can sometimes hear a loud neighbor, but that is not a common occurrence. Understand that this hotel is not brand new, but it has many more "plusses" than "minuses" The location, staff, and facilities more than makeup for the minor issues. Enjoy the beautiful beach while the hotel takes care of your needs.

Thank you so much for your review TallahasseeMark! Our associate’s goal is to provide highly personalized service, making our guest’s journey more enjoyable and memorable. Our associate’s keep integrity, accountability and respect in mind when working with both guests and colleagues. Concerning the guestrooms, we do realize that the guestrooms are definitely in need of a total renovation. The Sheraton Sand Key Resort has been on this beautiful and tranquil island for many years and that was the design of the era in which the hotel was built, at that time there was a different concept of room design. We are constantly renovating, replacing the worn with new, making changes and improvements, still we realize there is more to be done. We actually had a total guestroom renovation scheduled for 2020, however, unfortunately due to the current circumstances, we had to postpone that project. It was very encouraging to read such positive comments particularly when it comes from those who matter the most – you! We realize that vacations are not always a luxury; they are a necessity for a well-balanced, healthy life style and definitely can relive the everyday stress which can haunt many of us, we are delighted that you choose to stay here on the beautiful and tranquil island of Sand Key for your relaxation therapy.

We have stayed in Marriot Resorts all Around the world, this has been the biggest dissapointment. We came for a rest, but it is impossible to sleep since there are some industrial fans you Can See and hear from the most of rooms. About COVID safety, it is terrible there are tons of people around such a small swimmingpool (it is not atención all like the photos), no any control about quantity of people or any safety issues like wearing masks. We travelled from another country and feel we wasted our money and our yearly holidays... Extremely dissapointed!

Dear Xiaolincita, Thank you for choosing to stay at the Sheraton Sand Key Resort and providing your honest feedback. Providing the highest level of hospitality is our number one priority and we sincerely apologize for falling short of meeting your expectations. We've had to make some changes regarding housekeeping and other services for the safety of our employees and guests due to COVID-19. Due to COVID-19, for the safety of our guests, we have implemented the new hotel guidelines which are communicated during the check-in process by the front desk agent and with a letter explaining the new safety procedures. They are also posted on our hotel website as well as on reservation confirmations. In compliance with cleanliness guidelines, the following items have been removed from the guest room and are available upon request; Glasses, coffeemaker, pen, pad, laundry bag, guest directory, iron, ironing board, reading material, guest collateral (such as robes, etc.) and bottled water. We are happy to bring these items to you upon request. We are committed to offering an environment that aligns with expert protocols for working to defeat COVID-19. Consisting of in-house and outside experts in food and water safety, hygiene and infection prevention, and hotel operations, our Marriott Cleanliness Council is redefining our cleaning and safety standards. Starting with our public spaces and high-traffic areas, Marriott is going above and beyond our normal protocols. We are cleaning surfaces with increased frequency, dedicated staff, and recommended cleaning agents. Marriott has elevated our rigorous protocols to thoroughly clean all surfaces with hospital-grade disinfectants. Hand sanitizing stations are being installed at hotel entrances, at our front desks, our elevator banks, and meeting spaces. Signage in public spaces will remind Marriott guests to maintain social distancing. We will follow up to ensure that we are informing our guests of all COVID-19 safety changes. We do realize that the pool is very much a part of your beach vacation experience. Unfortunately, you are correct that the pool does fill up this time of year. During the other more tranquil months it is usually a sufficient size for the number of guests that use it, although a new pool is at the top of our wish list. When this happens hopefully our guests are able to enjoy our proximity to the beach, which offers sunshine, warm breezes and the smell of salt water all combined to create a sense of peace and calm during your beach get-away and later a dip in the pool. The hotel does also provide complimentary loungers and hammocks in the sand, around the pool and many of the grassy areas around the Gulf side of the resort. Please note that per Pinellas County Ordinance, face coverings are still recommended for all individuals entering indoor public places. Guests may remove their face masks while dining or consuming beverages when seated and practicing social distancing. This does not apply to outdoor public areas such as the pool and beach. The state of Florida has entered Phase 3 and is now able to operate in most areas at full capacity, however, we are still doing our part to continue to limit capacity to encourage social distancing and are not adding back any tables and chairs that were previously removed, etc. These areas are open with our own adherence to strict social distancing (such as removing loungers/chairs to only accommodate limited capacity and ensuring those that remain to be 6-feet apart) and sanitation guidelines. There are truly many choices for lodging in the Clearwater Beach area and we appreciate you choosing the Sheraton Sand Key Resort for your recent visit. We understand that what you are looking for in a hotel stay is a personal preference and there are many different factors involved when making your choice. We do hope that your travels will bring you back to the Clearwater Beach area and again when it may better suit your needs.

Our family and friends made reservations at this hotel for the summer. We had several rooms. We had a few questions so we called to get some information. The person who answered the phone was rude. The person who she transferred us to was even worse. I understand that because of Covid people are stressed but there still needs to some level of professionalism displayed when dealing with patrons who make the choice of where they spend their hard earned money. As a results, we cancelled our several rooms and will be looking for somewhere else to stay. After reading some of their other reviews, it doesn't seem to be an isolated incident.
