“Had a Great Vacation”
Reviewed 17 July 2012

Stayed in 506 with my family. Everything was very clean and worked properly. The staff was great and was able to get my place ready when I showed up early in the day. The pool is nicely built and very clean. In fact every morning that I was able to get to the beach early, I saw the pool being professionally cleaned. It is right on the beach, which is also cleaned daily by the city and right across from Johns Pass Village. There is a crosswalk right in front with flashing lights, so it is safe to walk to the boardwalk at anytime. The only thing I would ask is that the elevator be sped up a bit. Will definetly go back.

My stay with my family in Room 505 at Sandy Shores was remarkable.I cannot beleive the horrible reveiws about Sandy Shores. It is unbeleivable that people are so hateful.I have absolutely nothing bad to say about my room. The kitchen was great. The floor was perfectly clean. I saw nothing wrong with the beds or bathroom. The condo staff was very welcoming. I think that anyone who rents this room should have nothing bad to say . Our feet were perfectly clean after we walked on the floor for hours at end. I recommend this room for its perfect view of the beach. I will defintely come back for years to come. If you stay at this condo a little advice, if you look on here before going ignore every bad reveiw because none of them are that true.

HEADS UP SANDY SHORES!!!! Please get your elevators fixed or WARN guests that they are not working property and may get stuck. Husband was stuck for approximately 15 minutes before they got the doors open. Luckily we were on 1st floor and did not take elevator again but more than one person got stuck or had to wait for elevator to come down or up for 10 minutes or more. Maintenance said they were having 'issues" and had technicians out week before. Ummmm.... obviously not fixed and need mainteance again. Also no fan or a/c in elevator. VERY HOT!!!

Room Tip: Gulf front rooms on the very end of building (North Corner units) are best. Can see the gulf and bea...

We stayed in unit 301 in mid may of this year. I was shocked at the reviews I have been reading because we found this place to be wonderful. The condo was clean and up to date. The kitchen was fully stocked with any type of utensils needed for cooking; also had a few spices/oils if needed. The pool was cleaned daily with the deck furniture lined up every morning. There was no loud music, kids, or out of control guests. We had a late check in but were emailed the elevator and room codes (never had a problem with either one of these not working). The following morning we went to get our pool key and the lady at the front desk offered us her car to run to the Winn Dixie. To us, it showed that they will go the extra mile for their guests. We decided on day 2 that this will be our new Annual Girls Trip!

I stayed at Sandy Shores last month and what a pleasure. The staff was wonderful, the condo was gorgeous and clean. What a great location right on the beach with a beautiful pool and walking distance to so many restaurants and activities. The rate was so reasonable too. We will be going back as soon as possible!!!

We stayed in this condo development in march 2012. The unit was a disappointment to us, the unit needs a deep floor to ceiling cleaning. The unit was beautiful to look at, however once you close the door and really look, so sad. We notified the managers and they did offer to have the cleaners return however we declined as we felt they did not do the job the first time, why have them. The floors need a good wash and the bathroom needs a good down on your knees cleaning, the tub also needs to be replaced or resurfaced. If you are a light sleeper, take the room away from the hallway as you can hear people walking and talking. The location is good however traffic is often heavy so sometimes it is a wait to get out or across the street when walking. Please ensure you have a contract from the managers before you arrive and have a copy with you so that you both understand what you are expecting from your stay, or it will be a "he said she said situation". The positive is the pool, it is wonderfull, however people often leave their belongings on the chairs and claim them as personal property all day :-(.... We will not be returning,while in this unit we found another condo for our return to the gulf coast

Room Tip: If you want location only, this is the place..if you want to have a clean unit for you and the famil...

Great location and the pool area is the best......staff were freindly but don't forget any of your clothes because they will ask for S&H that is absurd....unit was 70's old accept for the kitchen, beds were terrible and so was the furniture, linens were poor, kitchen was well equiped but clean plates and such are hit and miss in the cupboards, second time we have stayed here, it was dirty the first time as well but we rented directly from the owner, this time we used the management company and it was no better, we would have spoken to the staff about our unit but I felt like taking a shower after I had been in their office it is such a mess, we assumed they had a different understanding of "clean" reluctantly we will have to look for accomodation elsewhere for out next trip to Madeira Beach......to bad as the location, pool and beach are fantastic.

Room Tip: stay away from this place if you like clean rooms......or sleep outside at the pool it was very clea...
