“More than what I expected.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2013

I was pleasantly surprised with the Resort itself. I had visions of somewhat decrepit buildings judging by some of the comments and pictures. This is not an inexpensive place to stay but for my husband and myself, being on the water is priceless. That being said, I was nervous about what it would be like regardless. It was much nicer than I expected! We stayed in the Montego Bay right on the water and it was quite nice. VERY CLEAN!!! I was worried about that. The only negative I could put on that would be the paint in the bathroom was not a professional job. However, if you are comparing the Ritz to Turtle Beach as far as accommodations, you can't. The value is strictly in the location for this resort. You can get much nicer accommodations for the money you pay per night but to be able to sit and watch the sun rise and moon glisten over the water while sitting on your deck......priceless! Not to mention, you have kayaks and canoes at your finger tips without extra charge. I would definitely stay there again without a doubt.

Room Tip: Montego Bay is right on the water. Loved the location.

My family and I went down to Sarasota for my doctoral graduation (an 8 and a half hour drive) a few weeks ago and a friend recommended that we stay at the Turtle Beach Resort. My family has not stopped thanking me for the best trip of their lives and its been three weeks since we were there. This was the most relaxing weekend of my life. There are two beautiful beaches very near-by - one within walking distance and one just a five minute drive away. The staff was awesome - friendly, responsive, and super helpful. When I read other reviews before I made my reservation I was skeptical when I saw several reviews who said that they were reluctant to tell others just how amazing this resort is for fear that it would be 'discovered' by so many others that it became hard to book. Now I find myself feeling the same way. This is a hidden treasure. I am currently planning an extended return trip and I cannot wait to go back.

Room Tip: There are no bad rooms but you may want to ask if your cottage is beach side or bay side. They also...

We reserved the whole resort for family and friends to have a weekend getaway, for a destination wedding in Siesta Key. Tropical storm Andrea blew through with a direct hit the day before we were to arrive. When we arrived on Friday, Turtle Beach Resort was immaculate -- they had cleaned all evidence of the storm, and it was as if it had never happened there. Matthew was on duty in the office; he was very hospitable and smoothly facilitated each person's arrival as well as a couple of special requests that we had. Several of our friends asked, "How did you find this place? It's wonderful." When we arrived, one gate was not closing correctly, so we asked for maintenance to adjust it -- they were there, fixing it before I even got back to my cottage! I really cannot say enough good things about this resort. Private hot tubs and hammocks, bikes, pleasant pool, covered deck, kayaks, fishing gear, grill, ... we used it all. It has a beautiful bay view, very relaxed atmosphere, away from the "beachy" traffic yet easy to get to Siesta Key's beautiful white beaches. A couple of relaxing restaurants are walking distance; full kitchen and plenty of room to eat at "home" if you prefer. Bottom line: Our group of 35 people had three generations there Friday-Sunday, and I heard not one complaint about the resort.

Room Tip: If you want absolute privacy, I recommend Rainforest.

After going to a crappy place that we found online, we left the hotel and came upon the cottages at siesta key. They were so kind that we were able to view them before deciding to stay. My Anniversary turned out wonderful thanks to Turtle Beach Resort Cottages. I could not have been happier and will definitely be back for a girls night. See you soon!

Had the opportunity to stay at the cottages for my best friend's wedding. It was exactly what she had in mind, perfectly whimsical and full of plenty of toys for adventures (kayaks, canoes, and bicycles). Will always remember the moments we created here and what a beautiful back drop the destination was! Also, the staff was extremely helpful and friendly.

My husband and I stayed for two nights and wish it was for longer. Everything was great, it was super quiet and real chill. The bed was ridiculously comfortable. This inn was recommended by a friend and I'm glad she told me about it. So, I will definitely spread the word.

We needed a quick getaway and this turned out to be the perfect place for us. Private, quiet, beautiful sunrises viewable from bed. The staff is very friendly and helpful especially Matt. They do everything in their power to make sure that you are comfortable and happy. Despite being close to the city, we felt like we were on a deserted island while at the resort. We stayed in the Southwestern and loved the shower and the bonus of having a full kitchen at our disposal. We are so happy to have found this place and hope to return someday soon.
Justme813 describes the resort and its amenities perfectly.
