“Beachfront”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2013

Read all the TA reviews before we booked. Very convenient location, very friendly staff. All rooms do have a beach view but the higher the room number, the closer you are to the beach, i.e. 301 is not as good as 310, etc. The property is located right at the beginning of the 2 mile board/beach walk. The room themselves are well laid out but I'm sure some are in better condition than others. Overall, a very enjoyable stay.

Room Tip: The lower the room number, the worse the view.

Overall, a nice property, well-situated on the Gulf Coast. This location is convenient to John's Pass Village, a complex of shops and restaurants, and boasts a well-maintained beachfront. The on-site restaurant, the Sunset Cafe, serves reasonably-priced breakfasts that are a cut above the Danish-and-coffee freebies offered at many chain hotels. Check-in was trouble-free, and the response by maintenance was prompt when trouble arose with the TV reception in the living room.

One bothersome aspect, and this is likely the exception, was the anxiety of the maids to get going on servicing our room once we checked out (11 AM is checkout time). The first knock on our door came at 8:30 AM, the second at 9:45. Both times we assured them that we would be out by the 11. Even as we were carrying our bags to the car at 10:45 AM, we got pestered twice at the elevator within five minutes. Although I understand the necessity of getting the room ready for the next guest(s), I didn't care much for the "Are you out yet?", especially in a "relaxing" resort!

We were only here for a quickie overnight stay while two of us visited a local college, and I would consider this place again on a future trip.

Second visit here! Awesome suites! Great value! If you wanna cook your own meals, you can. If you want to go out, great location for restaurants & night life!! Great tip...ask front desk for phone number for the "tip cab"...they will take you to St John's Pass etc for tips only.
Sunrise Cafe & beach bar are not the friendliest people or fast service but they do get you what you need if you have patience. Maybe service doesn't have to be fastest since 18 percent gratuity is added automatically into your bill & if you don't read menu, you do not know this & will tip them twice. Because you don't get receipt!
Wanted desperately to give 5 stars, but service not up to par...& our group spent a lot of $ with them. All & all will go back though for sure!

Room Tip: All rooms ocean view so you can't go wrong!

We stayed at the Sunset Vista in a three bedroom ocean front suite. This was one of the best vacations, ans the room was first class. The master suite is unbelievable. the People are the frendliest and "peg" was the nicest security guard we have ever met. It was 8 guys blowing off steam, and they were very forgiving in some of the "shinanigans" we came up with. The Two cute girls serving drinks at the Tiki Hut were sweet. The view was fantastic. It is right on the beach. I can keep going on. It was so nice, I plan on Booking my Birthday Vacation here. here we come again guys!

This room was awesome. A maintenance issue at their sister hotel forced us to move to this hotel sight unseen. We couldn't have been happier. The professionalism between the staff at the 2 hotels was superb. We had a 2/2 with a large kitchen and separate dining and living room with a direct view of the ocean above the tiki bar. We could go out at sunset and sit on the balcony and listen to the band. But once inside the room with the doors closed, you couldn't hear a thing. Large bathroom that was perfect for my handicapped husband. Room was meticulously clean. Close to shopping and restaurants and John's Pass. Great vacation spot!

For a late October stay we really enjoyed our long weekend in Treasure Island. We were really impressed with the 2 bedroom condo room!!! We all had our own space with separate bedrooms but could spend time as a family in the living room/dining room!! There was a Publix about a mile away and we bought groceries there and kept in the fridge!!! Having the washer/dryer in the room worked out great for washing out our towels before our flight back home!!! We can't wait to book here again!!!!

We originally started out at their sister hotel in Tampa who didn't have the room we booked and told us there was nothing they could do even though we were traveling with a handicap who couldn't use the bathtub shower combo they gave us or fit down the hallway with the wheelchair. We immediately called around and booked with Sunvistas and cancelled our room with the initial hotel. The room was spacious and clean. Beautiful views and classy decor. Closer to the downtown St. Petersburg area as well as being down the street from the Johns Pass area. Would love to stay here again and get use of the pool and beach bar.
