Friendly staff, great location, and right on the gulf. Close to St. Armands Square, with lots of options for eating and shopping. A short drive/uber into Downtown Sarasota. It's an older hotel but they've done a nice job maintaining updates. For example, the lobby was really nice. Again, staff was attentive, nice, and made the stay the most enjoyable. Would stay here again.

Great location with private beach but still very expensive for what it is. Room was pretty average. Drinks were crazy expensive ($25 for two margaritas in plastic cups). All inclusive Caribbean would be cheaper and better. Especially once you get all the Florida taxes added on to your bill.

Disliked: Amenities
Property is extremely overpriced for NOTHING to be included. At the very least, have a free breakfast buffet to feel like I’m getting my money’s worth somehow..!! Just absurd. We previously have gone to Jamaica for the same amount of money. And Jamaica had a better beach/more amenities. Also, to have to pay a “resort fee” on top of the exorbitant room fee is crazy. Popcorn and waters are a resort fee…?!? We drank one bottled water, didn’t even eat popcorn, or use the shuttle service. Only redeeming qualities were friendly staff at checkout/valet/beach, ease of beach chairs, nice balcony, and no carpet. Shower floor was disgusting. Some employees at the bar were not that friendly and kind of had an attitude.
