“Annual Girls Trip!”
Reviewed June 5, 2012

We stayed in unit 301 in mid may of this year. I was shocked at the reviews I have been reading because we found this place to be wonderful. The condo was clean and up to date. The kitchen was fully stocked with any type of utensils needed for cooking; also had a few spices/oils if needed. The pool was cleaned daily with the deck furniture lined up every morning. There was no loud music, kids, or out of control guests. We had a late check in but were emailed the elevator and room codes (never had a problem with either one of these not working). The following morning we went to get our pool key and the lady at the front desk offered us her car to run to the Winn Dixie. To us, it showed that they will go the extra mile for their guests. We decided on day 2 that this will be our new Annual Girls Trip!

I stayed at Sandy Shores last month and what a pleasure. The staff was wonderful, the condo was gorgeous and clean. What a great location right on the beach with a beautiful pool and walking distance to so many restaurants and activities. The rate was so reasonable too. We will be going back as soon as possible!!!

We stayed in this condo development in march 2012. The unit was a disappointment to us, the unit needs a deep floor to ceiling cleaning. The unit was beautiful to look at, however once you close the door and really look, so sad. We notified the managers and they did offer to have the cleaners return however we declined as we felt they did not do the job the first time, why have them. The floors need a good wash and the bathroom needs a good down on your knees cleaning, the tub also needs to be replaced or resurfaced. If you are a light sleeper, take the room away from the hallway as you can hear people walking and talking. The location is good however traffic is often heavy so sometimes it is a wait to get out or across the street when walking. Please ensure you have a contract from the managers before you arrive and have a copy with you so that you both understand what you are expecting from your stay, or it will be a "he said she said situation". The positive is the pool, it is wonderfull, however people often leave their belongings on the chairs and claim them as personal property all day :-(.... We will not be returning,while in this unit we found another condo for our return to the gulf coast

Room Tip: If you want location only, this is the place..if you want to have a clean unit for you and the famil...

Great location and the pool area is the best......staff were freindly but don't forget any of your clothes because they will ask for S&H that is absurd....unit was 70's old accept for the kitchen, beds were terrible and so was the furniture, linens were poor, kitchen was well equiped but clean plates and such are hit and miss in the cupboards, second time we have stayed here, it was dirty the first time as well but we rented directly from the owner, this time we used the management company and it was no better, we would have spoken to the staff about our unit but I felt like taking a shower after I had been in their office it is such a mess, we assumed they had a different understanding of "clean" reluctantly we will have to look for accomodation elsewhere for out next trip to Madeira Beach......to bad as the location, pool and beach are fantastic.

Room Tip: stay away from this place if you like clean rooms......or sleep outside at the pool it was very clea...

Pros - in room #504 - gorgeous beachfront view, right on the beach, perfect sunsets, overlooking pool. Nice ladies in front office.

Cons - husband had stayed there a few years ago and said it's really gone downhill. Floors were filthy and turned our feet black! There was no toilet paper in the bathroom, nor was there any toilet paper holder to put it when we did get some (good service when asked). Bathroom looked old and had hair on the wall and floor that were not ours. Where is this 3 hours of cleaning service everyone is charged for?? Condo in disrepair from bedroom clock not working, light in bedroom had short or bulb was loose, drawers in bedroom and living room dressers falling apart when opened, 25" TV (tube type from the 80's) broke while there and it was immediately replaced (good service there) but with another 80s 25" piece of junk. Beds hard as brick and matress cover sounded like loud "snap, crackle, pop" when you rolled over. Expected alot more after raves from husbands previous stay about 7 years ago, but we were both disappointed. When problems were brought up (ie TV and toilet paper) it was handled quickly, but for the amount of money they charge the condos should be checked prior to every client arriving to make sure they are clean with everything working and nothing broken.

Room Tip: Sounds like there might be better rooms available here than the one we had - honestly, if you can ge...
