Had a wonderful stay at Sand Cay. Stayed in unit 303, AMAZING ocean views from almost every room. This unit could really stand out more if they did upgrades. It has potential. There is an elevator there with bell carts to help w/ luggage if needed. It's kind of hidden. The pool and grounds are kept very clean, the landscaping is beautiful. Had fun playing shuffle board too. The weather was perfect, thank goodness. Longboat Key is one of my favorites, very quiet and private. It reminds me of old Florida.

We've been coming to the Sand Cay at least annually since 2001 ... resort has come a long way in that time and is still the best value on the beach. Appreciate the care and cleanliness of the whole property and the attentive staff. Just came back from a family reunion that was fun and relaxing ... stayed in unit 103 for the second time ... well equipped, lovely furnishings, washer/dryer, great view and just a few steps to the beautiful beach. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: First floor convenience for young children and those who hate stairs, but upper floors have great views and some have extended bedrooms.

Best deal in Longboat! Great for families. Some condos are more updated than others, but I've never had a bad one. All units are clean, have nice kitchens, wifi. 1st floor best with kids, but if you want a view go with the second or third floor. Bring your float, anchor, cooler, and enjoy!

I have been staying at Sand Cay since I was 18 months old, and have been going almost every year since. The customer service, cleanliness, and variety of both relaxing and fun activities is phenomenal all around. I love staying in the lower level units so we can pack light and wash our clothes, towels, etc. with the washer and dryer right in the unit. It's a quiet, beautiful setting that offers fun and sun for people of all ages. Great restaurants nearby, fantastic shopping in St. Armand's Circle, the glistening pool, and the whole time you're right on the Gulf of Mexico. Absolutely LOVE this place and cannot wait for my trip in August!

Room Tip: 1st floor units have a washer and dryer, gulf front condos are AMAZING, poolside is convenient if the pool is your thing, you really can't go wrong!

This was our first trip to the Longboat Key area and this resort was wonderful! We arrived late, but that was no problem. The front desk was kind enough to leave our keys and check-in information right outside the office. We rented unit #215 and we were more than pleased. The resort is super clean. The pool area is not super large, but it's plenty big enough for the amount of units. You are only a few steps from the beach. Our kitchen had everything we needed. There are washers and dryers there for you to use free of charge by the office. There is also an ice machine. There are free beach chairs for your use as well, just bring an umbrella. :) Loved Sand Cay!
