The view from the lanai of Crystal Sands unit 308 is amazing. It was great to go down the elevator and walk right out on the sand. I also appreciated the security the building offered by needing a key after 5pm to enter. This unit's lanai overlooks the beachfront pool. During spring break week it was very loud as groups of kids hung out in the pool area late at night. The bed in the king room was very comfortable, the twin beds were okay. The description of the condo states newly tiled and recently updated. The tile floor throughout the condo was newer and nice. Both bathrooms are in poor condition. They were in need of a paint job (peeling paint on woodwork) and a good cleaning. Although the condo states it sleeps 6, there are only enough chairs to seat 4 at the table to eat. The kitchen cabinets were "tacky" from something sticky that appeared to be covering most of them. The kitchen had the basics, not a lot of extras. Not a plastic cup or plate in the place. It was very nice to have the washer/dryer in the unit. The living room was adequate, older furnishings. This was our first time to Siesta Key - this may be the condition of all the condos in the area in this price range. I do not think we will be returning to Crystal Sands in the future. Because the building has so many units, the beach is more crowded than other areas. The beach chairs were all taken most days by 9:00 during spring break. The booking process with Jim was very easy and because of the last minute booking he rented to us for less than the 2 week minimum.
