Tropical Beach Resorts

Reviewed November 2, 2009

Tropical shores was our 5th and final visit before heading back to Miami after travelling around south Florida for 2 weeks. With much regret we only had one night stay in the Tropical Shore due to our busy schedule, but this one night gave us back a lot.

We arrived about 12pm at the resort and was offered to upgrade. We paid only $10 for an upgrade from a normal Junior suite to a 2 bed Apartment. Our room was ready for us even though the check in time is normally at 3pm.

The room was great. Very Clean, very tidy, had a full kitchen, free wireless internet, air con that was not loud during the night and very spacious. The Resort also offered free beach beds to take to the private beach which was only a 1 minute walk away.

Being located so close to the beach was great. The sand was white and felt/looked like talc on your foot. The water was warm, clear and shallow and the it was lovely and quiet. The beach was kept clean and tidy and was not cluttered. It was the best looking beach I had seen during my 2 weeks in south Florida.

The only downside to Tropical shores was the fact we were only here for 1 night.
OVERALL: Great location. nice easy drive into Siesta Keys Village for a meal at night, Free off-road parking outside our door step, BBQ and garden area if your travelling with a group - again outside your door step. A swimming pool if you don't fancy the beach, internet, cleanliness, and great service. I would return.

After selecting Siesta Key as our honeymoon destination, the next job was to find a hotel. After researching a ton of hotels I came across this one in trip advisor and was quite pleased with all the positive reviews. Based on those reviews I selected this hotel and let me tell you....I wasn't disappointed at all!!!
The pictures are exactly what the rooms look like. We stayed at one of the boutique rooms. The kitchen was so well-equipped with anything and everything you can think of! From a bottle opener to a toaster and everything in between! Even a dishwasher!!!! Who wants to do dishes on vacation? It's nice not to have to eat out for every single meal so the kitchen came in quite handy for breakfast and lunch.
The rooms were kept very clean. Not only the rooms were so clean but also the grounds of the hotel. The outside eating area are so well maintained.
The proximity to the beach was awesome! Literally a minute walk to your feet hit the sand. And that sand....wow! You can read all you want about the sand and imagine what it'll be like but until your tootsies actually touch the sand you have no idea! The beach around the hotel is perfect! You're kinda at the end of the beach by point of rocks. (awesome spot to snorkel) It was nice to be at the end of that part of the beach because it seemed less crowded.
We saw dolphins swimming in the water 2 days in a row! I know I was on a high because it was my honeymoon, but this beach was beautiful!
We are already talking about our trip for our one year anniversary at Sara Sea!!!!

Our first weekend getaway to the beach and we loved every minute. Tropical Shores was beautiful; rooms, public areas, grounds and of course the beach, we even walked to 2 local restaurants that were great and well priced. It is great and convenient to not have to load 3 children into the car every time you need to go somewhere(quaint village setting). Dawn and her staff are some of the friendliest people you will ever meet.

We enjoyed our 6 days staying at this hotel. The walk to the beach carrying a cooler, chairs, beach bag, etc. got a little long after a few days in the heat but other than that it was fine. The pictures shown on Trip Advisor's site are not pictures of the rooms at this resort however. When asked about that the front desk said that was of another resort that cost more money. They said there weren't any of "those" rooms available so we couldn't move. But the room we had ended up being okay. We'll probably stay closer to the actual beach the next time but for the price and location, this place is very nice. We'd stay there again if we couldn't find anything a closer walk to the beach.

We have stayed here before last year, when they were actually renovating the section of rooms we stayed in this time. It was a great place before the renovations!!! It is FANTASTIC with the renovations completed!!! We will continue to stay here everytime we come to Siesta key. Great value, location, staff and property in general!!!!!
