The location of the property right on the beach was incredible. We had a gorgeous view from our room overlooking the ocean. But we were on the 3rd floor, in room 319, which was definitely a pain in the butt. The stairs and endless walkways made it about a 7 minute walk to the beach. Not as easy and accessible... More

Had a great time at the condo we selected at the Sand Cay Beach Resort. It was a casual and relaxed atmosphere and very safe for all the children to play with their friends. The condo was laid out well and was decorated nicely. It was clean and had a lot to offer my family. We had a great time... More

We were very happy when we got to the condo. We were surprised by how spacious the living area was. The rooms are very nice and clean. Every light and airy. The kitchen was very nice and it had everything we needed! We really liked that it was so close to the beach!

Unit was clean, Bathrooms need an upgrade badly, Bed was good, Front office employees were exceptional, ground floor unit was good, pool was good. Complex needs to install some sort of walkways thru the high grass to get to both the beach and the pool. Landscaping is lacking A.C. worked well.Thi

We were hesitant about driving down south because of possibly encountering Hurricane Hermine at the beginning of Labor Day weekend 2016. But, we were brave and the business office told us there was not a state of emergency for the area. Once we made it to Longboat Key and to our unit, the winds had to be whipping and blowing... More

Thanks for still visiting us during the blustery Labor Day weekend. Luckily the weather improved as the weekend progressed and you were able to enjoy our large pool area and our incredible views of the Gulf of Mexico. We hope to see you again in the near future when you travel plans call for a beach getaway. More

Everything about this resort was wonderful! Took my boyfriend here for his first time and he absolutely loved it! My family has come several times before and each time was better than the last. It's so peaceful and quaint and perfect for a beach getaway. And the staff were all so nice and pleasant. Definitely going back again :)

We had a great time while staying on this property. The apartment was in great shape, had everything we needed and the grounds were very well taken care of. I enjoyed the quiet time with few people and no loud parties. I would have appreciated some sort of towel service, especially for beach towels, but we managed.
