“Nice Little Place to Stay!”
Reviewed June 13, 2007

Stayed here one night June 7th to spend a relaxing day at the beach. Gave us the key to our room, but when we walked in, it was not cleaned yet and was a disaster! Luckily, the manager upgraded us to a better/bigger place. This one had living/full kitchen together in one room and then the 2 double beds in another room, along with a bathroom. The rooms were very clean. The bathroom was very small and cramped though. Each room has a marked parking spot. Quiet atmosphere. Not alot of "riff-raff" or little children running around.

The full kitchen was great. It's a short walk (about 1 city block) to the actual beach, but you do not cross any major roads. The beach is "private" for only the resorts on that little road. Nice and we rented chairs and umbrella, which they direct billed to our room.

The pool area was clean and nice. We would stay here again. It was not a bad rate either $109 per night. We ate out and shopped about 5 mins away in Siesta Village.

Only stayed for a couple days, but the service was paramount. Every member of the staff went out of their way to make my stay a pleasant one. The pools were great and it was only a 2 minute walk to the beach. I would recommend this resort to anyone with or without kids.

Excellent, "AAA"

Keep up the good work

I had my doubts about the Tropical Sun but when i arrived i couldnt ask for more! Perfect location, BEAUTIFUL beaches, friendly staff, nice and quaint rooms. Everything was a dream. We booked the King Efficiency and as mentioned in a previous post it was great. It was kinda small but it had a full kitchen with all the forks, knives, spoons, pots, pans, cups, ect. and a very comfortable bed. My boyfriend and I travelled and found the room to be just big enough for the two of us. I dont recommend booking this room if you have a lot of children. They will run out of space quick. Yes the bathrooms are small but the shower pressure was amazing and well we didnt spend much time in the bathroom because of the beautiful beach. If you get a choice book room 146. It is the closest to the tropical Shores resort which means its close to the beach and everything else. Im so glad i found this secluded paradise. I will be posting pictures later. We will be back!

Just returned from a great holiday In Siesta Key. Stayed 5 nights at Tropical Shores (SaraSea Circle Siesta Key)

Stayed in a room with own Sundeck and Kitchen & made use of both. The grounds have BBQ's available & it was great to cook out & dine on our own deck. Room was clean & nicely decorated (tropical theme) Bed was comfortable & housekeeping prompt & efficient. Kitchen was full equiped and it was nice to be able to make picnic lunches for the beach & prep for BBQ's

The Resort:
Pool was never crowded & water was great
The maintaince of the grounds & pool was excellent. There is real attention to detail.
The front desk were very welcoming & helpful - The are truly please to see you & will assist you in any way they can. (There is also free coffee available in reception)
Whilst not 'on' the beach, it is only a very short walk away with no roads to cross. The beach was fantastic (as always) The sand at Siesta key is amazing. We found some great shells
Many people take beachchairs & a drink down to the beach each night just before sunset - The sunset times are available in reception and it was worth the effort each night.
This is a great place to relax if you are looking for a low key holiday.

There is a 7 11 within walking distance (but you are probably best popping to Publix for supplies) as well as a few restaurants such as Capatian Curts (was OK but would not rush back)
If you have a car dont miss Phillipi Creek Restataurant (Casual but fun), The Sarasota Farmers market (every saturday) & Frozen Custard at Sweetberries -(on Clark road over the causeway) and a trip to Myakka state park

This was our 2nd visit to Tropical shores & we will be back

We returned last week from a four-day stay at Tropical Sun Resort. We had a king bed efficiency room, and it was very comfortable, with a small but well-equipped kitchen, a small dressing area, and a tiny, but fairly nice bathroom. The shower was great! Plenty of hot water, and really good water pressure, which is important to us. The room was clean, with fresh towels provided daily. The pool is very nice, and the walk to the beach is lovely, with lots of tropical foliage everywhere. The beach had a lot of seaweed when we were there, but my daughter and her husband have spent many vacations at this beach, and she says they have never had the seaweed problem, so I assume it was just nature! The price was reasonable, staff was friendly, and we will be back!

Just got back from Tropical Sun a few days ago. It was so beautiful!! The beach was so beautiful! Clear water and the sand was so white and soft!! The room was so clean!!!!! So bright and sunny. The bathroom was on the small side, but we were okay with it. The ocean water was a bit cool for me. It was so tropical there. We also go to Saint Petersburg beach too which is nice, but not as nice as Tropical Sun. I was going back and forth on this web site making sure I made the right choice and I did!!!! You will be happy with Tropical Sun!

Just got back on 4/16/07. From the website, one is to believe the beach is close by. Not so. It is quite a haul, but at least you don't have to cross the street. The room was worn and dirty feeling, not at all like the photos. The shower was dirty. Paint was peeling badly in the bathroom and the shower. The blankets were ragged and the sheets were stained. The old window air conditioning was extremely loud. Our room (king effiency) was very tiny, not what you would expect from a resort. I thought it was highly overpriced. I had to call the office twice to have my room cleaned even though the sign was out to have it serviced. The gentlemen that checked us in was extremely curt and seemed bothered that he was having to work. My teenager daughters inquired about beach towels at the front desk and were lectured about it and told to go to the pool to get some, yet the pool bin was empty when they checked. I will say there were a few positive aspects: good high-speed internet access, a couple of staff were nice, and the grounds were pretty. Will not stay again. The comfort inn or holiday inn would be a much, much better value, and cleaner.
