“Loved the Crescent Arms”
Reviewed May 25, 2008

I wanted to make a statement about Crescent Arms. We have been going to Siesta Key for many years and chose Cathy's unit 201. We chose this condo because we are a family with two young children and this was right on the beach. We sat out on this very large lanai every morning and listened to the ocean. The view is unobstructed and the condo was very clean. Both rooms have private baths and the living area was very comfortable. The unit on the 6th floor is beautiful also. There is no better value for the view. We already re-booked next year with her condo. We recommend this highly.

What a terrific vacation. Sweeping view of the most beautiful beach from sunrise to sunset. Great place for kids just steps away from the beach.

Convient with dishwasher in unit and washer/dryer on the same floor - allows more time to enjoy the beach!! Comfortable, roomy bedrooms with access to the lenai that runs the length of this beachfront unit. Great room was perfect for relaxing and dinners by sunset.

Large and deep pool is off beach on the back side of the property, well kept and fun for a break from the beach.

Already have reservations for next year!! Can't wait!

  • Liked — Beachfront view....closest you can get to the beach
  • Disliked — Being on the second floor and stairs/elevator to beach. But got over that quickly with all offered with the unit.

We stayed for 2 weeks in unit 302 Crescent Arms South in February 2008. Although the beach is lovely, and fine for sunbathing and walking, we were very disappointed with both the building, and our condo. The building was built with the units around a large open space, and every time somebody shut a door or shouted, everyone in the building heard it. The unit was well located right on the beach, but was shabbily furnished and not clean, carpets and cushions were stained, and the beds were old and gave us backaches. It was hard to read due to poor lighting,and the walls were bare with no pictures. Bathrooms were outdated, and towels were old and worn. The kitchen was poorly equipped, the drain smelled and did not work properly - we had to clear the muck from the garburetor. The lanai was good but poorly furnished. In all, we were very displeased and felt we paid way too much for such a place. We rented through VRBO.

I stayed at the Crescent Arms Condominiums when visiting Sarasota for a family reunion. A few of my family members gathered at the complex for relaxing dinners after we watched the sunset. The beach was pristine and the views from the condo were supreme! There were also so many great amenities in the unit. I'll be back in Sarasota again this June for a wedding in the area and booked the same unit # 302S. Thanks again Dolores for your great tips and comfortable place!

  • Liked — The views and easy access to a great beach!
  • Disliked — Nothing. It was a great experience.

We stayed at Crescent Arms 302N and had a wonderful experience. The condo was clean and was equipped with everything that we could have needed. The owner was very accomodating and called to see if we had everything that we needed. As described in another review that found the beds uncomfortable, we found just the opposite. The beds were very comfortable! We have stayed at Crescent Beach before, but 302N is by far the best accomodations that we have experienced, only footsteps from the beach. Beautiful lanai overlooking the gulf. We will definitely be booking a stay here again.

We stayed at Crescent Arms for a week in January. The accomidations were average at best. Unless you have a DIRECT ocean view you will be dissapointed. The rooms were very out dated with basic necessities. The beach is beautiful (white powder sand). There are plenty of beach chairs avaliable and it is close to shopping / resturants etc... I would advise only book the room after a detailed discussion with photos documenting the unit. Ocean view isn't always what you think it is.

My family stayed at Crescent Arms several times, but August 2006 was the last time.
Crescent Arms used to be a two week rental.
When they changed to a one week rental I think that they attracted a different crowd.
I complained to the owner about loud renters keeping me up at 3:30AM and about strong odors of barbecue lighter fluid entering my unit.
The owner seemed sympathetic, but nothing was resolved.
In my opinion the buildings entrance ways and elevators are dirty. Some units are nice and others need to be updated.
The pool area is OK but it is on the other side of the parking lot away from the beach.
The beach is nice. and Crescent Arms is nicely located .
This year we tried Clear Water Beach and had a great time.
We rented a 3 bed room condo which was newly renovated , direct beach front, and better priced than Siesta Key.
We enjoyed that Clear Water Beach has some nice bars and restaurants which were located direcly on the beach. There was also more things for my eight year old son to do there.
Next year we plan to rent several weeks at one of the newer beach front condos on clear water beach.

  • Liked — Beach Front Lanais in some of the units.
  • Disliked — Loud renters, hot small dirty elevators.
