“Old Florida Coastal Oasis”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

If you're looking to drop yourself into a Jimmy Buffet song without driving all the way to Key West, this place is ideal. Weathered boat docks, salty air, hammocks under palm trees and Florida wildlife all outside your private front door. Everyone on site was helpful but hands off. If you want to be picky about an occasional ceiling patch, you probably complain in general and this is not the place for you. If you value clean, quaint, and private accommodations that allow you to relax on your terms, you will fall in love with Turtle Beach Resort.

We had a fabulous time at Turtle Beach Resort. The staff were so helpful and friendly. Very cozy resort right on the bay that close to everything but not overwhelming. We still were able to have a sense of privacy. The fact that the resort is pet friendly is amazing. We were able to bring our new puppy and she absolutely loved the area! Can't wait to go back again!!

If you've travelled in Europe, you come to the conclusion that "charm" and "romantic" mean old and kinda decrepit. That doesn't stop the pleasure. People, what you are paying for here is PRIVACY. My husband and I enjoyed every moment we spent here and we didn't regret the splurge. We want to go back. We stayed in the Hibiscus Room first. I felt like I was on my honeymoon; the beautiful furnishings and innovative planning of these rooms caused me to feel like I was completely alone with my spouse. The jacuzzi had too much chlorine, but we fixed that by running it before we got in. 'Sides, I don't know what the industry standards are for private in-suite jacuzzis. I'm not a youngster but this place had me and my spouse giggling and snuggling all weekend long. The king sized four poster bed was a huge hit with us. We liked it so much, we're going shopping for our own. The same couple now owns a place across the street called "the inn at turtle beach". We stayed there too. See that review to compare the two.

Room Tip: So far the Hibiscus room is my fave. Looking forward to trying others.

Turtle Beach Resort was everything we wanted and more! We had our wedding down in Siesta Key on Turtle Beach and it was absolutely perfect!
Our family rented 9 of the 10 rooms and each were distinctly different and wonderful! We stayed in the Caribbean room and didn't want to leave the resort at the end of the trip.
The family enjoyed the open pool deck (complete with lounge chairs and shade) that overlooked the Intercoastal Waterway. The resort had fishing poles and kayaks for use at anytime (which we all did)!
Beach chairs/umbrellas/boogie boards/etc. are available for those that need or want to partake in some wonderful (and deserved) beach time. There were also beach cruiser bikes that were available to ride into town or just a short ride over to Turtle Beach.
The resort was quiet and the perfect spot for anyone looking for a wonderful, relaxing and romantic vacation.

Room Tip: All rooms are wonderful and each boasts a different decor!

This place was so beautiful and cozy, we didn't want to leave! The owners were so friendly and welcoming! I just got engaged there July 20,2012, and it couldn't have been any more perfect. We have the best time and the staff really know where to tell you to go to have fun and relax. I love, love, love, it! The rooms were so romantic, and they were immaculate! We stayed in their "Country Cottage", as well as their "Hibiscus" suites. They were both beautiful rooms, and if we could have taken off from work for longer we would have stayed a whole week. When it came time for us to check out the staff were willing to help, by packing our room, and also allowed, in fact, insisted we still enjoy all of their accommodations for the entire day. So we took a canoe to a private beach and had a picnic, and got back when we got back, with no worries at all about having to leave the property, even tho we checked out at 11. This place is amazing, and I will definitely tell everyone I know where to go if they need a romantic get away! We will be back!

Room Tip: The Hibiscus room is really a romantic and private room for a couples only trip. :)

The Turtle Beach Resort is on the quiet south end of Siesta Key. TBR had spacious two bedroom/kitchen/hot tub suites (we were in Key West), short walk to beach and a nice view of Little Sarasota Bay. The owners were very charming and helpful. Nice supply of free kayak, canoe and bike rentals. However, besides the pool area, the property and rooms need updating. Porches should be screened. It was pricey so I felt its overall value was weak. They do take pets even though they are banned on all key beaches.

Room Tip: If you want a patio area, see if they have one with screens. Certain rooms offer more private hot tu...

Our lovely, romantic cottage was right on the Bay, The property takes you back in time, think Caneel Bay before the renovation. Ceiling fans in bamboo ceilings, hammocks for two by the water, Mainland Florida feels very far away, but is 5 minutes. Here is the relaxing tranquility of your own cottage on the bay, with enthusiastic and kindly staff. We brought our two children, Newfoundland and Pomeranian, and they were mesmerized by the enchanting environment. We loved this place! PS. Ophelia's next door is great, and no car needed!
