We loved it here and will definitely make a return visit. The office staff were all friendly and very helpful. The grounds and unit were very clean. The only thing I would advise is to bring shampoo and kleenex because they do not supply it,...More

I have been going to Sarasota Sands since I was a teenager. (I'm almost 50 now). It is such a great place for families. There is so much to do, and everyone, even the guests are so friendly. It's on the end of the island...More

Ypin check-in, Jay asked if we would like a large 1 bedroom with no view vs. An efficiency with a small balcony. Honestly, I thought he was kidding. Have owned since 2001. RCI is dropping the ball. Not happy with them at all !

I am sorry you had an inconvenience with RCI, but unfortunately we have no control of what RCI does, you might have to take it with them. It's not the Resort's fault. I hope you stay with us in the future!!

We weren't looking for luxury. We were looking for comfy and relaxing. The staff was top notch and the resort was everything we wanted! The pool was very nice, the beach was clean and easy to get to. It just couldn't have been any better!

Unit 462 has an amazing view of the Gulf from it's Lanai. The Lanai has a couch and two chairs. You can sit in the living room and look out the Lanai. You can eat breakfast and look out. We have the unit week 26 and LOVE it.
