Well never had been to Siesta Key before. Stayed with my friend in the tower with our 15 & 16 yr old daughters and 3 friends of the same age. The 2 bedroom condo was nice and had a beautiful view of the ocean and the beach was wonderful. Soft white sand and wide. The pool was average and there...

The living room couch had several stains. The master bed was not sturdy but wobblie.The unit is supposed to sleep 6, our eldest son tried...

Mother Nature did not fail to disappoint our family at our third annual family reunion at Sarasota Surf and Racquet Club. Air and Gulf temps were the warmest since we started our family reunions. We lounged on the beach with an attendant bringing us chairs, walked at the shore's edge, barbequed at the grill some nights, and thoroughly enjoyed the...

This review is long overdue. We lived in Sarasota for several years and stayed at Sarasota Surf and Racquet the first week of this past November.

We rented Y106 which is a terrific beachfront unit with amazing views. It is quite large. I wish it had two king beds instead of a king in one room and a double and single in the other to make it more appealing to share with another couple. The complex is very well managed. They do a lot of maintenance...
