Hideaway Sands Resort
Ranked #23 of 32 Hotels in St. Pete Beach
Reviewed 14 March 2014

Small and basic accommodations directly on gulf. Timeshare exchange thru RCI. Can also rent them nightly for 150-185 a night high season. Nice people run the place. Beach is gorgeous . Newly redone kitchens. Clean and tidy. Pool and hot tub great too. Near many restaurants. My only complaint is noise. The parking lot is like a sound vortex. Echoes up to your room very loud. And on Saturdays the cleaning personnel gets very noisy too. Other than that it's lovely and I'm sure you would enjoy it here too! Right next to the don Cesar hotel.

This place has three buildings. One building is the 2 bedroom town homes, which we have never stayed in. We have stayed at the gulf front building, and the gulf side building. In both we stayed in the one bedroom units. They are on the small side. The bedroom is tight. The dining area is very small. The living room is cozy. Each unit has a balcony. The units are clean with the necessary appliances. The units are comfortable, but very tight. The pool is very nice, and the beach is beautiful. Cabanas are included with your stay, but they are limited, and you need to grab one early in the morning as they cannot be reserved. The staff is most helpful. Gordon was our contact, always a delight.

Room Tip: The gulf front is a bit more expensive, but you can watch the sunset from the lower or upper balcony...

We stayed a week here with another couple. We drew the short stick and got the small room,two twin beds and view of parking lot. The other room had a balcony-oceanview, TV, and queen bed. Suited more for a family with kids not two couples. The carpet seemed a little worn and a deep blue that showed every speck of sand. I didn't mind vacuuming and was glad to have access to cleaning items. The kitchen had a full compliment of cooking dishes and utensils. We did a lot of cooking so this was great. We even were able to borrow a crock pot from the front desk. The staff was absolutely great. Everyone was friendly and eager to help. The maintenance guy was right on the job for the few minor issues we had. The pool was clean. The beach access was great.

We loved at our stay at the Hideaway Sands!! The staff was exceptionally friendly and accommodating! The location was perfect. The Cabanas were the icing on the cake, made the beach day ultra comfortable, perfect for lounging and reading. The pool and hot tub are awesome too. We had a few chillier and wet days when we were there and the free movies were perfect, we got to see some of the classics with the kids. We stayed in a town home and it was very spacious. Was nice having 1/2 bath down stairs and full bath upstairs. We would definitely stay at Hideaway sands again!

Room Tip: get one with a front view of the gulf

My wife and three other couple purchased units 3 yrs. Ago. The location and the staff are beyond belief . We actually bought 2 units a townhouse in October and a gulf front in may. Any needs are always met with a smile or friendly word. All our friends feel the same way. I read one negative review from some one who claims 15 yrs prior ownership and declining conditions. I don't know what planet he was from, but all our collective experiences couldn't be more different.

We stayed in a two bedroom town house which was super private with no one above us and no one below us because it is two story. It is super clean, including the really, really nice covered parking right below your room. The hotel/condo in general is small with a smallish pool, but it is adequate, clean and fun, and it makes up for it by being RIGHT on the expansive St. Pete beach and almost feeling like it is our private home. It is super quiet, also. I am very snooty when it comes to hotels, but this is very cute and beachy and homey, and would recommend and will be back.

This is a nice, small place on the beach. We had a 1 bedroom unit that sleeps 4. We had two adults and this unit was almost TOO small for us. The unit was clean and refurbished. Our air conditioner was wall mounted and always on, so there is always humming in the background.

The full kitched was small but efficient. There is NO dishwasher, but we had a full size refrigerator, stove / oven and microwave. They also provided a coffeemaker and 2-slice toaster.

The patio was a nice size, with a table and 4 chairs. It is NOT screened in.

Wireless internet service is provided at no charge and worked GREAT! Fast speed. No issues.

Covered parking is available. No charge for this.

Large BBQ gas grill that worked great. Cabanas on the beach for guest use. Fresh water to rinse off your shoes / body. Pool and hot tub were clean.

I would stay here again due to it's cleanliness and location.

Room Tip: No restaurant on site. Office is only open from 9-5 daily except Sunday (9-12). Call ahead if you ar...
