“A hidden gem in St Pete's Beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 April 2013

This is our third year back to Hideaway Sands. Don't expect a four star hotel chain. This place is quaint, private, simple yet offers so much. This is a time share that also offers weekly rentals. Our room was clean and well stocked. Our room featured a small bedroom, living area, bathroom and small kitchenette as well as a balcony. We were closer to the street so with windows / balcony open was a bit noisy. The staff is great, a great pool, location is right on the most beautiful beach with beach loungers available. Hideway offers an outdoor grill to cook your favorite steak, seafood or burger if you wish, but with many, many great places to eat nearby, we only did that once (however our steak was WONDERFUL. Must have been the chef)! Hideaway Sands also offers a great patio for ocean/gulf viewing or starry night sky viewing. We will be back. Visit the website for photos/info at www.hideawaysands.com.

Room Tip: Ask for the beachside rooms or even the townhouses closest to the beach for quietness. But again, w...

Don't get me wrong...it's not a bad place. However, we exchanged our points from Wyndham to RCI for this resort and with our experiences with Wyndham resorts in the past, we were disappointed by this one (from RCI). The unit was cramped and housekeeping did not clean one day while we were there ( 7 days ) and the resort did not supply daily cleaning supplies for us to clean the unit ourselves, with the exception of dishwasher tabs. We will not exchange our points again!

Room Tip: If you have enough points take the option of a larger unit if available.

My husband and I have just spent 2 weeks at Hideaway Sands. Although the units ( ours is a townhouse) are small , they are clean and efficient. The staff is incredibly friendly and they make you feel right at home. You walk out your door and you are on the beach. There are many places and things to do within walking distance. Every year when we leave we can't wait to go back again. The kitchens have just been remodeled and they are great. The only thing I would do to improve them would be adding washer and dryers to the units.

Room Tip: The building on the gulf side has the best view of the ocean, there are efficiencies and one bedroom...

We wished we had more time here as we loved the place. Just the quiet and peaceful beach holiday we were looking for. Really enjoyed the sunset 'Happy Hour' with the other guests. Can't wait to go back next year!

Room Tip: Gulf front rooms have an amazing view of the beautiful sunsets here.

These condos are almost entirely remodeled (except for the carpeting? Go figure!). They have done a very nice job. There are two bedroom but only 1 1/2 baths (not 2 like they advertise). The kitchen is tiny and the whole place is only 650 sq. ft. but it is laid out well, the pool is heated with plenty of chairs and there are complementary beach cabanas (a real plus). There is also a large bar-b-que and some tables and chairs overlooking the ocean and the sunset. Right on the beach and St. Pete Beach is truly one of the best beaches in the US.

Room Tip: All the two bedrooms have a glimpse of the ocean from the second floor balcony. The efficiencies ar...

The units, even the townhouses, are small but they have all the basics and are well maintained. The kitchens are tiny but if you don’t plan on any complex cooking projects they will do. Most of the regulars do most or all of their “eat-in” meals on the large gas grill in the common area. That area overlooks the beach and the regulars gather there each night to cook, eat, party and watch the magnificent sunsets. If you want a fancy resort on St Pete Beach there are a few to chose from, but most of us at Hideaway Sands would not want to trade places with you.

Staff was very friendly and would go out of the way to help you.
Make sure you have 50 cents to cross the bridge.
What I liked most of all are the following:
Nice clean rooms- unit we had the 2 bedroom condo with bath and 1/2 has ocean view
Evening sunsets
Friendly staff
Quick fix of air conditioner- our fault it quit working we had the door and windows open with the air running.
