Visited Siesta Key on a 3 day weekend vacation with my family. The rest of my family stayed for an additional 7 days.

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. Could use some more action but great place to relax. Wouldn't rent above the tennis courts again. The condo was renovated modern but the mattress were hard as a rock and you had... More

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.
