Sarasota surf and racquet club was amazing! The check-in was easy and friendly. You get a covered parking spot. The grounds are pretty. They have regular tennis courts as well as 2 clay tennis courts (which we did not use). The place is separated into a 12 story tower on the left and 2 or 3, 5 story buildings on the right. We were on the top floor of the tower and our view was spectacular. We were able to see the sunset every night. We also walked the beach at sunset and threw a football. There is plenty of beach space. The beach is beautiful. The sand is like powdered sugar. The water was warm and the waves were just enough to play in. We went to the beach everyday. We rented a covered cabana for $20/day, just one day and wished we had done it for a few more days. The sun can be quite brutal even at just 83 degrees. There are 2 pools which we did not visit. Our only complaint was there there were children everywhere, albeit well behaved. However, if you have kids then this may be a plus for you as they all played together. The hotel is about 1 mile from the Village where all the nightlife and restaurants are. Quick tips: the Daiquiri Deck is fun but the drinks are filling. Don't go on a full stomach. The Hub had amazing ribs and a great atmosphere. The Lobster Pot had great crab legs. SKOB is a fun for drinks, dinner and live music but gets busy quickly. The Broken Egg for breakfast is a must. Get the cheesy potato casserole or any of the skillets. Enjoy! We will be back for sure!
