We enjoyed our stay at Sarasota Surf & Racquet Club. We had a premiere ocean front unit with unobstructed views of the beach, Gulf, and the beautiful sunsets. Our major gripe was a non-functioning dishwasher. We had to do dishes by hand during our stay. Just be aware that units are individually owned, so quality and decor will vary. Ignoring... More

Visited Siesta Key on a 3 day weekend vacation with my family. The rest of my family stayed for an additional 7 days. We stayed at the Sarasota Surf and Racquet Club, in the tower, (covered parking, 2 vehicles per unit) unit # T-803. This 2 bdrm/2ba condo was impeccably clean.

Can't beat the beach of course. Clean, well priced, beautiful grounds, pool at beach front, no hot tub, fitness centre, ping pong room, friendly front desk staff.

Nice resort, beautiful beach, safe family facility where you can leave things unattended and they will be there when you return. The grounds are kept in good order. There is security on site. Having the ability to reserve outside grills is a plus.

Great place to stay! The beach is absolutely gorgeous and the apartments are huge. There are two pools that aren't very crowed so it's nice if the beach isn't your thing. A beach tent in a necessity. Overall a great stay, wonderful staff, and close to lots of local restaurants and shops.
