“Unpretentious Paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2014

I don't really want to tell you how good this place is because if you know, then that is one less room available for me. Tropical Shores on Siesta Key is not a five star hotel--it does not need to be. It is perfectly located in affordable and beautiful paradise. I especially love it at the end of summer when I can have the beach almost all to myself. The staff is very friendly and the rooms are very comfortable and clean. Cannot wait to go back...

I recently got married in Sarasota and my family stayed at the Tropical Beach Resorts during my wedding week. They absolutely LOVED IT! They could not stop talking about it. My aunt went kayaking and participated in beach yoga. My parents felt like they were in a tropical paradise and couldn't get over the fantastic rooms with full kitchens and modern amenities. Plus the staff was wonderful - they treat you like family. They loved the fact that it was just steps away from one of the most beautiful beaches in the world! It's also great for visitors coming from out of town because there's a shuttle service that will take you back and forth to local restaurants! I have a giant family and they're talking about having our next family reunion at the Tropical Beach Resorts! I highly recommend it!

We stayed in the smaller Sara Sea Resort Hideaway room. It was perfect with the queen bed, galley kitchen with small table for 2, and more that adequate bathroom. The property was beautiful with plenty of room to lounge and was the next best thing to being beach front. They provided portable chairs to haul to the beach if you didn't want to rent them and had spare floats, noodles, and toys. The gas grills were great quality and clean. Staff was friendly and the room was always spotless after cleaning. The resort beach access was a very quick and easy walk but is on the southern, slimmer end of the beach. We always had to walk a little away from their "private" beach area to get some space. We will definitely have Tropical Beach Resort as one of our return to places.

This place is amazing not only are the rooms fantastic but the staff is incredible. Its so close to the beach only a minute walk and the grounds ate amazing. There are grills placed everywhere for your convenience and towels chairs and beach umbrellas are there for your use also. I would highly recommend this place to anybody over a resort or any other hotel in the area. Definitely a must stay here type of place. My girlfriend and I loved it and can't wait to go back. If I could give this more than 5 stars I would without hesitation.

Everything about this place was great. Location, staff, rooms, property, the beach, etc.... We look forward to coming back for an extended stay. This was a spur of the moment thing to come here, and we couldn't have been happier with our short 20 hour stay. The room we stayed in, seemed to be completed remodeled recently, and it was very nice.

As a Siesta veteran, I generally rent condos or houses and simply needed to extend a stay by three days. Sara Sea looked great online and I am HAPPY to report that it lived up to what I saw on various websites. Good price for the location and amenities - even though we didn't use many of them other than the pool and the refrigerator. For families I would imagine this is a DEAL with the courtyards equipped with grills, the stove, refrigerator, diswasher, etc. You could have all your meals there if necessary.

For us however, we simply took advantage of the free beach chairs and the short walk (less than five minutes) to the very best beach...and later the pool. Sara Sea is conveniently located on the "less" busy part of Midnight Pass Road, close to Stickney and short drives to Sarasota and Long Boat Key.

The rooms are nicely equipped, the beds are fine, we had a private porch to sit and enjoy the cool breezes later in the day and they even use Aveda products in the bathroom!! I would definitely return and will recommend for future Siesta Fiesta visits.

Room Tip: The Hideaway rooms are a bit small....but who spends much time there other than to sleep anyway. NI...

This resort is top notch! Beautiful grounds, impeccably clean!. Stayed in their "mini" efficiency! Will be coming back again for sure. Pillowtop beds and everything was modern and well maintained in the room! The staff is welcoming and super nice! So glad i live in sarasota so i can come back to this place for my staycations! Awesome private beach access also. Can ask for anything more !
