Unit 118 is outdated! However, We love Sand Cay / LBK and have been coming for years.......this time, we stayed in Unit 118 (1st floor / ocean front ~3K week). I'm giving the Unit 118 a POOR rating. The resort itself was great: grounds were beautiful and beach / pool was excellent..... The online pictures of this unit are misleading...

We booked Unit 104 for two couples for a 5 night stay. The master (king) has an attached bath and the second bedroom (queen) used the main bath. It was nicely decorated, clean and bright. We chose this unit b/c we did not want twin beds in second bedroom. To our surprise it had many extra towels...both bath and beach....

This was our third year at Sand Cay and the condos are a crap-shoot; we honestly come back because we love the location and the beach is incredible. Two of the three years there have given us disappointing condos and we spend the week telling ourselves to think of it as camping (sad, when we're paying $2000-3600/week) We chose Unit...

Been staying at SC regularly since 2001, resort looks great with the upgrades made to decking, landscaping, and love the plentiful new beach chairs!

Our Family really had a great spring break! We started it off with a Chartered Sailboat Sunset cruise. We saw Dolphins and manatees through out the week and late night strolls were fun dodging the crabs too! We also enjoyed the lizards all around the property, Harmless !!

We have stayed at Sand Cay during Spring Break several different years. We like the family-friendly complex and that it has only 60 units so there is always room on the beach. We always select a "gulf front" condo because we like to see the beach even when we are in the condo. We stayed in unit #216 this time....
