“Not what expected”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 28, 2013

Doesn't look anything like the pictures on-line. Tiny room, two seater couch that smelled like fabreeze. When sitting on the tiny couch, had to look at the ceiling to see the tv. Bathroom was retro with faucets in shower falling out of the wall. Pool was freezing cold and with no seating around it. They have 3 pools, the one in the picture was locked at 8pm and not really available for those not staying next to it. Very disappointed in the accomodations. Great location, but nothing else!

Room Tip: Check for rooms that have been updated.

I would like to thank you for taking the time to give your feedback on our hotel, the Tropical Breeze Resort. The photographs online are a representation of many different room types, we have 7 different types. I apologize about the pool being locked at 8:00pm, it is supposed to be open later. We have three pools and two are heated, I am sorry if that was not conveyed upon check in. The front desk staff always tries to give the proper information depending on the location of the room since the property is so spread out. I hope that you will consider out location when visiting Siesta Key again, we are constantly making improvements and our One Bedroom Suites may suit your needs better. Again, thank you for staying with us! We do appreciate your comments.

You cannot beat how close this hotel is to Siesta Key Viallage and the beach, literally a stone throw away. Rooms need renovation and are very small, including the bathroom. Clean enough though, and coffee maker in the room.

Only stayed one night, but wish I could have stayed much longer. Unless you go way high end, there is a certain standard to expect for beach rentals in Florida. For us Northerners, that standard is equal to, say, a lake rental - sand on the floors, dated furniture, old fixtures, musty. Tropical Breeze sets a new standard for this type of rental. At first, it appears typical and unassuming - one level, cinderblock buildings - but, then you notice the buildings look clean, colorful, and freshly painted. And then you notice how well kept the grounds are - no garbage, raked sand, swept walkways. The owners are great. We got there about 4 hours before check in and they gave us a parking pass to use to park down the street and go to the beach while our unit was being cleaned. Worked out perfectly. When it came time to check in, we found our cute little purple building and were surprised at how clean the room was - smelled fresh, new tile, decent appliances, flat screen TV. Even the well designed signage for the property tells you the owners care about this place. Anyway, we'll be back.

Tropical Breeze is a typical beach resort in a town full of condos. I'm glad they are there. It's one of the few places on Siesta Key where you can just stay for the weekend (most places want you to stay a week or more). It's located steps from the town center and the beach. My only complaint is that some of the units really need some updating and renovation. It's not a cheap place to stay so one would think they could work on some upgrades. I do like the units with the kitchens and I will continue to stay here when visiting Siesta Key because of all of the pluses which still outweigh the negatives.

Room Tip: Get one with a kitchen.

This was our first time staying here as it was a recommendation from a very good friend. we had a nice room with a view of the beach, so watching the sunsets was fantastic, and the soft, sugar white sand on Siesta Key is just beautiful. The staff at the resort were all very friendly and responsive to our request's. This is a place where you can just park your car once you arrive and just walk to everything, including all sorts of bars and dining establishments and convenience stores as well. We did go in February, which I won't do again, as the place was jam packed with people from Canada, all over the northern U.S. and Europe. Now I don't have anything against any of these folks having a great time here in my home state, it's just that I prefer to go in the middle of the summer when it is much less congested and I don't mind our summer heat. I have already booked another stay for May of this year and will probably go back again in July or August. I love the resort and do highly recommend it to anybody who wants to be so close to a wonderful beach.

Room Tip: Tell the staff that you want to see the beach from your room and you will be closest to the beach.

I do not recommend this place. Nice, friendly staff, but that did not make up for the physical plant and its deteriorated condition. The lack of privacy was a serious drawback. Screened patio was next to neighbors and we could hear all of their conversations, even when they were inside their room.

Room Tip: There are no good rooms. No privacy. Roaches in bathroom were a definite negatrive. Pools were about...

Thank you for staying with us at the Tropical Breeze Resort. I'm sorry if the lack of privacy was an issue during your stay. The units with the screened porches are the most sought after, however they are right next to each other. We appreciate your comments and hoped that you enjoyed your time on Siesta Key.

I spent a week at the Tropical Breeze Resort and was very pleasantly surprised at the beautiful resort as I booked it online and knew nothing about it. I booked a standard room as I am a single traveler and was pleased at the cleanliness of the room. The walk to the beach was short and enjoyable and my room was situated on the side of the office. My room was located on the street behind the Village where there is an abundance of restaurants and shops, there was even a small grocery store. I never had to move my car during my entire stay. I would recommend this resort with the cute cottages to anyone who is looking for a really nice place to stay.

Thank you for posting your comments on Tripadvisor about your recent stay with us at the Tropical Breeze Resort. It's hard to know what you are going to get when you book online. I'm glad that you appreciated our unique resort and it's great location. A car is definately not a necessity here. Please come back and stay with us again when in the Sarasota area.
