I had highly recommended this hotel for a church retreat, never again. My daughter checks in and was given a key to a room, a day later, she was being questioned as to how she got the key to that room, when she stated that it was the front desk, they didn't believe her, not only did they have her...

This was our second time visiting and staying at The Sapphire. We made the reservations directly with the owner this time and it was perfect as usual. A fantastic pool, spotless condo, facilities, and a fantastic unit 809. The unit's view was beautiful and the 3 bedrooms, 2.5 baths makes it a very comfortable stay for the entire family. Looking...

Best place I've stayed on the island. Great location. Pool and hot tub both huge and beautiful. Access to beach. 25 yr old minimum to book, so the crowd is more family oriented. Only downside to this place (if you have kids and aren't there to party), is the Pearl next door. The balcony faces the pool and its debauchery--throwing...

When we arrived on December 11th for our three-month vacation, we were told upon checking in that "the pool was under construction". Little did we know at the time what that meant. The pool, hot tub, access to the beach, any outside was off-limit. There were no lounge chairs. Our condo on the seventh floor was not high enough to...

We booked the apartment for Labor day weekend. We were supposed to have 3 bedrooms but one of the bedroom doors was locked. The staff who helped with our luggage suggested since it was a private unit , they owners could have locked their belongings there and we shouldn't have tried to open it. The front desk was not friendly...

We returned to The Sapphire again this week! It is our most favorite condo on the beach! We stayed in 1105, it has 3 bedrooms and 2-1/2 baths. King, Queen and 3rd bedroom is decorated for the kiddos with bunks that will sleep 6. Very tastefully decorated, has all the amenities! Beach and pool view with a sunrise that will...

We stayed in bungalow 101 which is separate from the high rise condos. The place was very nice and the views were beautiful. The pool at the Sapphire is gorgeous and kept very clean. The only thing missing was bar service that they said they no longer had. Instead we had access to the next door hotel bar and pool...

This was our second winter in SPI. The Sapphire by far is the best resort for location and amenities. The staff are awesome and more than helpful with any issues. We stayed from the middle of February to the middle of April. KIds and grandkids came had a ball. Enjoyed the Pearl and Seaside Grill for cocktails and food. Both...

Spent the month of February in this condo. After a few weeks several things became annoying. Light bulbs burned out, lots of items missing in the kitchen (specifically- pizza pan, a few basic spices, decent wine glasses, a few cleaning supplies to keep YOUR kitchen clean on daily basis. We have always been privy to condo's on the Florida gulf...

Rented 703. Nice height to overlook the ocean and the resort. The room is very well supplied and everything was in good working order. We spent a fair amount of time just sitting on the balcony. The resort itself is clean and the exercise room was very large with more than enough equipment for our needs. We were told there...

“If you enjoy views you need to select a condo higher than the 15th floor and preferably in the north tower. That way your view will nominally include the Pearl, which sits in front the north tower and has 14 floors”

“book wayyyyyyy in advance and make sure you ask questions like: * do the jets in your jacuzzi work * do you have wifi * what does your view look like. (we had a great view of the hotel next door instead of the ocean) * Is the master on the north side or south (you are going to have a blast of morning sun on the north side)…terrible”
