We stayed in Unit 812E at the Cedars, so our experience is SOLELY based upon that unit. Always first, the good: -- kitchen appliances were new -- lovely view from lanai and master suite of Sarasota Bay -- grounds meticulously kept. Beautiful boardwalks. -- big junior-Olympic sized pool (that we did not use) -- excellent in-unit Wi-Fi. No passwords or... More

Cedars East is a group of three separate sections of RESIDENTIAL DUPLEX TOWN HOMES. Cedars EAST IS NOT a TENNIS RESORT. The "TENNIS CLUB" located @ Cedars East is a separate COMMERCIAL ENTITY having nothing to do with the residential properties. The TENNIS CLUB Consists of a lovely pool, a tiki bar, a small dinner type restaurant with some pretty... More

My wife and I rented unit 818 from 12/25/14 - 2/28/15. We paid $4800 for Jan. and $5800 for February plus hundreds more in taxes, resort fees, etc. For that price, we expected good quality. Instead we got a unit in which the construction, fixtures and furniture were cheap to begin with (decades ago) and have been neglected ever since.... More

Last year we stayed a week and found it wasn't enough. Two weeks this year and very happy! This is a nice tennis focused community. Tennis pro (Dave) hosts weekday morning tennis clinics that are extremely well attended. Accommodations are spacious, clean and well stocked. Resort includes large pool, tiki bar, small gym and restaurant. Bonus: balloon tire bikes are... More

532 What a Disaster First let me say that this is not the first time we have stayed at this resort. We have stayed there for multiple months but not at this particular condo.

Our apologies to this repeat guest on what appears to be a lack of service by our team on several levels. Our Management Team is conducting a full investigation of this unit, and has reached out to this guest with an appropriate apology.

We rented unit 804 for one week in June, finding it available on short notice. The unit itself was clean, updated in the past few years, with cold A/C. Could use some new TVs, but it was really a fine place for the week. Only other comment was that the master bed was very soft, and could use replacing with... More

Just back from our tenth consecutive stay at the Cedars. This is the place to stay if you love physical activity. In fact, there is so much to do on-site that you never have to leave. There are 10 gorgeous har-true tennis courts, a huge (junior olympic size) pool, a fitness facility (with over a dozen machines, weights, benches, etc.)... More

Mixed feelings about this place. Cedars is a beautiful and quiet resort. The pool is clean and often we were the only ones using it. The jetty behind the resort is great for fishing and the beach, which is only 5 mins walk away, is in our opinion better than Siesta beach. It is so clean and quiet and covered... More

The resort is close to beach access and some great restaurants (recommend the Blue Dolphin for breakfast) and is a short drive to St Armands Circle and Sarasota.
