Thank you for taking the time to review our property. We apologize for any frustration you experienced. We now have two full-time staff on-site to handle any issues that arise and added a fourth, high-powered router to improve wifi service. The messy kitchen cabinet drawer resulted from a newly installed white quartz countertop and should never have happened. All inside...

Being our first time to Siesta Key, we weren't too familiar with the surroundings. I did some research of some mid-range places and Banana Bay Club jumped right out at me! We booked Villa #5 which is their more Studio type room. It was perfect for my wife and I. I should note we are the types that don't need...

We booked this place not knowing much about Siesta Key and it was a great find. When my husband and I arrived we realized that there was definitely a change happening. The lovely staff greeted us, showed us our room and where to park and apologized for the chaos. Banana Bay is under new ownership and they are re-doing everything!...

We followed our GPS and area people to what we thought was our reserved room . Upon arriving we found the name Flip Flop on the buildings. We were assured that it was the right place by area people. Our reserved room was taken. We repeatedly called the number and left messages with no response. We found a room open...

We apologize for the mix-up. The Flip-Flop Cottages used to be part of Banana Bay Club until last year when it was acquired by another owner. The “area” people were most likely referring to the original name. As for the GPS, our guess is you most likely typed in the reservation office address instead of the property address. That won’t...

I booked this villa because we wanted to be close to a great beach for a few days after doing Disney. It's nice enough, clean and spacious, and the pool was good too. However, it was very expensive, bearing in mind that straight after staying here we went down to Naples and stayed in a lovely hotel (the Cove Inn)...

Thanks for sharing your experience. We regularly review local room rates on Siesta Key in Sarasota and our rates are normally on the lower end of the range. As Naples is 120 miles south of Sarasota, I am not sure how we can compare rates. Regarding staff availability, as prior reviewers have noted, we are typically on the property during...

My first impression was that this place is obviously under construction, but once inside our unit (The Florida) we were very pleasantly surprised. Everything in our unit was new and clean. We were less than a 10 min walk to a beautiful, family friendly beach and we enjoyed the pool each afternoon. The WiFi was not secure and we weren't...

Great place to stay for a couple or small family. Banana Bay Club has 7 or 8 little cute villas. Is a walking distance to Siesta Key Beach. Close to supermarkets and shopping centers.

This classic Florida property is tucked away in a classic Florida neighborhood a short walk to the perfect beach. It's quaint and not fussy, so if you're like the reviewers who thought they were paying for the Four Seasons, don't stay here. It needs a little TLC which the new owner is very excited about.
