Sand Dollar Condominiums
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 8, 2012

We stayed here the week of June 25th 2012 and we absolutely loved this facility. The staff was great, the location could not be better. The room we had was beautifully renovated with a perfect ocean view. Our kids had a blast in the pool and ocean alike and we saw dolphins swim by!!

My family and I stayed in room #109
The good: it is very spacious and clean, owner seemed responsive, great location, and the view over the pool is great.
The bad: The members of the HOA reprimanded us upon arriving for asking about a parking pass as the owner suggested. There were no wrist bands provided, which according to the signage, were mandatory. The staff wouldn't answer our questions because the owner isn't part of the HOA. The keys were EXTREMELY difficult in the locks of the stairs and pier (codes would be much more convenient). The stairwell closest to our room was closed ALL week which left us to walk to the opposite side of the building (with children and toys). The kitchen and bathrooms need updating. Sheets still an issue.

Hello, I just wanted to clarify that the front desk in the lobby is not the HOA. It is a Rental Management Company that is hired by the individual owners. The front desk can not offer services to the condos that are not on our program. The front desk has no way of knowing who is authorized to be there. The owner is well aware that the front desk can not assist nor offer parking passes and such. These should have been and must be provided by the owner who is the only one who knows that you belong there. I understand how frustrating this can be but unfortunately it is something that would need to be addressed with the owner. Not being able to assist someone is the hardest thing the front desk has to do, we are completely geared to assist people, we just can not legally assist those few condos who are not on our program.

We just finished spending 6 days in FL and would recomend everyone to look at the Sand Dollar Condominiums located in Indian Shores. We stayed in 210 and it was amazing. The owners have spent a lot of time and money making this place feel welcoming. It had amazing ocean views and is right above the pool... Also great drinks at a local favorite called the friendly tavern just down the road....

Beautiful beach and condos with excellent staff and pool area, with easy beach access since right on the beach. Most beautiful sunsets and very family friendly enviroment. We saw dolphins swim by every day. It was the best vacation ever. The Sand Dollar is near everything, and it is 1 hr from Busch Gardens and Adventure Island and 1 and1/2hr trip to Disney and Universal Studios.It is also near boating and fishing excersions too.

Our family has spent a week in June at the Sand Dollar for the last eight years. We cannot say enough good things about the facility and the staff. My entire family travels from hundreds of miles to attend this family reunion and they would not want to stay any place but the Sand Dollar.

We usually rent two condos to accommodate our numbers. We always stay in 208 which is a beautifully decorated condo with a well equipped kitchen and spotless bathrooms. The pool is clean and carefully maintained and the staff is always helpful and knowlegable about the area.

If your looking for the perfect spot for a beach vacation, we highly recommend the Sand Dollar.

Our first impression when we opened the door was "it's so clean". Aside from that, being right on the beach, having a large pool, plentiful parking and the convenient location made this a perfect place. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We plan to stay there again.

we stayed in room 303 and loved it! very homey feel and very clean! the staff was super nice and the beach was outstanding. you could literally leave your belongings on the sand for the day and no one would bother a thing. the only suggestion i would make is about the pool... there was no supervision and when it got to the weekend some visitors were swimming with alcohol and cigarettes in the pool as well as playing inappropriate music on a loud stereo. it was not a family environment. when it was reported to the staff nothing was done. other than that problem we had a blast! plan on coming again and hope my concern is resolved before then!
