Tropical Beach Resorts
Ranked #3 of 12 Hotels in Siesta Key
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 22, 2013

We stayed here for 3 nights last week and it was our first time to Siesta Key and to this hotel. We stayed in RM 129 which was recently redone and it was a lovely room. All new and nicely done. Everything we could have asked for except for the rain! It would be nice if they had paper towels provided in the kitchen but otherwise we lacked for nothing. THe grounds were clean and well cared for. Did not use the pool but it looked fine. Short walk to the beach which is lovely. Don't hesitate to stay here. THe front office was very helpful and we even used the free taxi service one night.

Room Tip: rm 129 upstairs with larege deck shared with only 1 other room

We stayed for 3 nights at Sara Sea Resorts in Feb. 2013. We really enjoyed it and would consider going back. The staff were friendly, helpful and responded quickly to our requests.
This resort is crowded in with many other small resorts, but it is surprisingly quiet. A very short walk to the lovely Siesta beach meant a nice morning walk each day, yoga on weekends, and a sunset each night. The area has lots to do being so close to Sarasota. We visited a few museums and galleries, the Selby gardens, and restaurants in Sarasota are terrific.
The hotel, housekeeping rooms are very small. Too crowded really. The pictures are accurate and the quality of the room is very good, but very small, with little counter space to put your stuff. We had to store our suitcases in the car. There was really no room. If they changed the king bed to a queen, that may make it better. BUT, we would stay there again and probably ask for a bigger room, if they have it. I do recommend this resort.

Thank-you for staying with us this past season! We are so happy to hear that you are planning to come back in the future! It's great that you were able to enjoy many of the cultural activities that Sarasota offers as well as walking the beach, catching the nightly sunsets, and participating in our complimentary yoga classes. We do offer a variety of room layouts and and it sounds like a larger suite may best suit your needs on your next vacation. Our accommodations range from standard rooms (fully equipped but compact, ideal for stays of three days or less) , to designer efficiencies, and suites offering one or two separate bedrooms. We always encourage our guests to contact us directly to make reservations so we can help assist with choosing the perfect room for your vacation. We really appreciate you staying with us and hope to see the next time you are stay on beautiful Siesta Key.

Actually stayed at the Sarasea which is part of same group. It would be fine for about half the cost. It is a 50's motel with upgraded rooms but cars outside your front door. I spent 6 nights here for a cost of $2000 and could easily have found a weekly condo rental that was much better by contacting siesta4rent.com.

For $350 a night I was really disappointed. It would be fine for maybe half that price. They even charge a $10 resort fee for what I can't imagine. There is a pool but no towels and the beach cairs need to be rented separately by snarly beach attendants.

Stay away so you do not feel cheated.

We traveled to seista key to visit friends and stayed at beach resorts. The staff is very friendly and welcoming. The rooms are in need of an update, especially the bathroom. We enjoyed the chairs and table outside the room with an ashtray. Steps from the one of the most beautiful sandy beaches in the country but we needed to rent lounges or carry chairs to the beach. There is a lovely relaxed attitude that we enjoyed on our way to the keys.

While the facility may be older, it is kept in great condition. Room extremely clean. Landscaping is beautiful. Not hard to find, especially with GPS. Close to ocean with easy walk to the beach. Pools look fine. Location is great as it is on south end of Key away from the real heavy traffic. Can walk to Claytons which is a great restaurant. Remember, this is not the Ritz but also not the "over the top" Ritz price as are many hotels on the Key. Overall, a fine experience and great value.

This is an adjacent group of 3 small single story motels in a great place. Couldn't be happier. Terrific beach access, clean, quiet. Only here for 2 nights but even our small queen unit has a fully equipped kitchen. The whole thing is charming. The room was small (they told me in advance) but I just used the car as an extra closet! Bring a steak and you can cook out right here.

Found this resort through a special on Expedia and grabbed it because it was for under $200 a night during Feb. this place is just lovely, extremely comfortable and immaculately maintained. The Boutique room was more than big enough for my husband, me and our adult daughter. There was no extra charge for a third person in the room, although she was a late add-on. The king bed was comfortable, our daughter was ok with the sofa bed, nicely equipped kitchen. The rooms surround a little park let with a grill and lounge chairs and tables. Lots of nice little touches, unlimited coffee, tea, lemonade, cookies, candy hot chocolate to be had in reception, movies (with micro popcorn) to borrow, beach chairs and beach towels. The staff were all extremely nice. The bathroom was very small, bit had a good shower. The beach is beautiful and only steps from our room, nice enough pool. Just a very, very pleasant place to stay.

Room Tip: Boutique room gives you the most room
