“CHARMING AND WELCOMING”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2012

A wonderful surprise. Tucked in on Siesta Key in a residential area, we stayed on the bay. Our two bedroom cottage was nicely appointed with a private hot tub. The cottage had a private deck literally on the water's edge. A great place to stay when visiting friends in the area. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Ask to stay on the bay.

The staff was incredibly friendly! I especially loved the grounds, the rooms, the hot tubs ;), the scenery and the romantic settings. Bicycles, canoes, kayaks and fishing gear were included with the room. My Husband and I went for our honeymoon after we were married 12/12/12. We live in Sarasota, but we felt we were not even near home and in an exotic private isle made especially for us. Thank you so much Turtle Beach Resort!!!!!

Room Tip: We stayed in the Seabreeze a cute,blue room with an adorable kitchenette perfect for a romantic geta...

Wanted: no one bothering us, a very private hot tub, beautiful secluded beaches, no add on charges yet free bicycles, canoes, beach chairs, condo like setting and did I mention, Very Private Hot Tub?!? Wow! What a vacation. Matt couldn't be more gracious. If we fished, it would even be better. Instead, we enjoyed walking Turtle Beach, biking to Siesta Key, canoeing to a private beach, and best - hot tubbing it every morning, afternoon and evening. We were under work stress, but no more. The best vacation and we loved this resort. Thank you Matt!!

I know Trip Advisor is keen to ensure reviews on here are accurate so I feel I must comment on the negative reviews I have just been reading. I do not recognise any of the negative points people have made, including a problem with a wedding - we got married on their deck and all was fantastic. I know our multiple stays were a few years ago now but why would we and so many others go back time after time and why would we all stay in touch with Gail and David, the owners, if any of what is said about them and their resort being horrible were true.
We are sophisticated travellers and have stayed in a whole range of hotels from the luxurious to the cheap motel - and Turtle Beach Resort is where we would return if we had just one choice. It is unique and very special and we have noe hesitation in recommending it to people with taste who are looking for somewhere to relax, be romantic, chill and BE HONEST.

Wanted to spend a couple of days with another couple in Sarasota. Found a fabulous place. Fresh ground coffee, lots of face clothes (a pet peeve in most lodging), lots of electric outlets. Everything to make the trip comfortable. Sat on chaises after a round of golf. And after our cocktail hour and dinner, finished up in the private hot tub drinking sherry thoughtfully provided by our hosts. Would come back again on a heartbeat- and a romantic one at that!

When we first moved to Sarasota, we stayed at the Turtle Beach Resort for a couple of weeks before moving into our new home. We still see the owners from time to time and have met some of their guests that have become personal friends of theirs as we have, one of them from England have been returning for 20 years. I cannot find a better recommendation!!! We are often asked by out of town friends to recommend a good, relaxing and peaceful place to stay. We did recommend Turtle Beach Resort where the athmosphere is condusive to romantic relaxation. We subsequently attended a Chamber of Commerce party at the resort.
Every one of the friends that stayed at the resort from our recommendation were very pleased and said they would use it again. They enjoyed the cottages by the water, with amenities that allowed them to relax and cook their meals if they wanted to or go out to restaurants that are plentyful in Sarasota. Nothing formal, just beautiful like Florida.

Room Tip: We stayed in one of the the East side cottage and loved it.

If you are looking for that Ritz sort of place, Turtle Beach Resort is not for you. If you are looking for a quiet and quaint sort of place, Turtle Beach Resort is for you. Take a look at their webite, because they deliver exactly what they say they will. We really enjoyed our stay here. It's the perfect location (if you are looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of busy tourist areas), at the secluded south end of Siesta Key. Our cottage, the Southwestern, overlooked the water, so we could just sit out on our terrace and soak in our great views. They allow dogs, so it was nice to be able to take my two dogs with us. We didn't even take full advantage of everything they offer (i.e. free kayaks and bikes and private jacuzzi), and still had a terrifc time. I will definitely be back again!
