“We've been coming for decades”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 April 2014

Mom and I love this place. We're both very particular, and this resort meets both of our standards. I want to be absorbed in nature; Tropical Shores landscapes the grounds beautifully: It's lush, not overly manicured, asphalt isn't the main thing your eye sees (unlike so many other places on Siesta Key), buildings are set back and low and not out-competing the natural setting. When you sit outside your room you forget everything and can relax without the noise of the main streets: Nature is at your doorstep. The rooms are clean and comfortable (kitchen is well-equipped) and housekeeping does a remarkable job given all the sand we track in each day. The bathroom is clean and bright, and there's a separate vanity with a sink, which is very convenient for two people sharing. Mom's mattress was too hard the first night, but staff arranged for her to test other beds, and replaced the hard mattress upon her approval. Staff, in general, are exceptional. Isaac and Mike are so friendly and professional; Sundi was a walking encyclopedia for all of our questions about where to find something. Our biggest concern was with the smoking policy. We recognize that it's a difficult problem for management, but having smokers right outside your room is like having them inside your room. I would also prefer that the lighting at night be more shaded or directed downward--it shines directly in your window if you want the blinds up slightly to let fresh air circulate. But overall, this place is my little piece of heaven. Thank you, Dawn, for your great hospitality and management.

It is such a great honor to have guests return to Tropical Beach Resorts for decades. We are so pleased to have such wonderful guests and it's a pleasure to be able to have such long term relationships. Tropical Beach Resorts does not permit smoking in any room and are pleased to say that our guests honor our no-smoking policy. Smoking is permitted outside and we find most of our guests are very respectful choosing not smoke in front of other guests or outside another guests door. Management was aware that there was a situation with this when our recent guests stayed with us and we did everything possible to ensure that everyone was comfortable and had a wonderful experience. We are always appreciative of feedback and most of all for the loyalty of such wonderful guests.

Hotel is a short walk to the beach. Rooms are nice except maid service did very minimal cleaning during our stay. Awesome pool and parking was close to our room. We used the provided barbecue grills two nights and had no problems.

The resort was clean, accomodations were appropriate, housekeeping put the room back to perfect each day! the walk to the beach was approximately 2 mins, and we were easily able to go back to our room as often as necessary for a bite to eat, use the bathroom or to freshen our drink. the king sized bed was the most comfortable bed we have EVER slept in!

My wife and two young children stayed for 5 nights at Tropical Shores Beach Resort in late February. I would highly recommend this place and we will stay here again when in Siesta Key. The staff was EXCEPTIONAL. Every employee we encountered was friendly, pleasant and accommodating. They seemed truly pleased to have us as their guest. Because we booked late we were unable to get one room for all 5 nights. The first three nights we were in a 1 queen bedroom/1bath/plus sofa sleeper unit. This room had not been remodeled yet was still clean and nice...just not brand new like the remodeled rooms. For 2 adults and 2 kids the kitchen, living room and bathroom were large enough to be comfortable. Not big but adequate. The queen bedroom was tight as it was basically a separate bedroom with a bed and not much space around the bed. The last two nights we were in a 2 double bed/1 sofa sleeper/1 bath unit. This unit was 1 large room without the separate bedroom. It had the living room, kitchen and beds all part of one big room with a separate bathroom. We were pleasantly surprised to find this room was recently remodeled with new everything. It was GREAT! Granite countertops, new flooring, new cabinets, new shower, 2 separate sinks in the bath, etc. For a family of 4 we thought we would like the 1st unit we were in best as it had a separate bedroom for my wife and I. In the end we were wrong. If I were to go back I'd request the second room we had with the double beds and one large room. There was more space in it and we didn't feel as cramped. If possible I'd definitely recommend requesting a remodeled room as they're really nice. The resort grounds are also excellent. Very well maintained and very clean. The pool was big and kept at a comfortably warm temperature. The weather was cool when we were there (couple days in the 60s) so the warm pool felt great. We had planned to grill out 2 nights and enjoyed doing that so much using the nice BBQ and facilities they had that we stayed in a third night and grilled again. I'd highly recommend Big Water Fresh Fish Market right across the street. We walked there two times and bought fresh fish and shrimp and grilled them. It was delicious!!! The resort had over 20 beach chairs and tons of kids toys so no need to bring either. The last great surprise we had was the walk to the beach and the beach itself. Many resorts advertise how close they are to the beach only to discover what they describe as a 2 minute walk is much longer. Not true here! The walk to the beach is super easy...even with 2 small kids and all their gear. It's about a 2-3 minute walk with no streets to cross, down a nice brick path and you're there. I walked the grounds of 4 nearby resorts and none was a spacious, clean and well maintained as Tropical Beach Resorts. There's always something to be said about staying right on the beach but if you want to save a little money, condos on the beach are full or you just don't care about staying directly on the beach I'd highly recommend this place. Last, my only complaint is that they allow smoking right outside each room. At both rooms we had people next to us that would step outside their door and smoke. If we had our door open we immediately smelled smoke drifting in our room. The rooms are too close together to allow this type of smoking policy. The resort should have designated areas for smoking. There's plenty of grassy space with tables that could be designated smoking. At least then if it bothers you you just don't hang out in those spots. When it's right outside your room you don't have a choice. This wouldn't keep me from returning but it was annoying.

Thank you for taking the time to write such an extensive and fantastic review! We are always amazed that our guests take time out of their busy lives to write a review of praises about their stay with us. There is a saying out there that people only write reviews when they are upset about something.. and your review very much proves that is not the case. We are so appreciative of your review and for staying with us! And for our readers, where ever your next vacation takes you, take a moment and consider the one problem this guest had was guests smoking around his family. Hotels can enforce no smoking in rooms (which all 70 rooms we have are non-smoking) but we can't enforce no smoking outside. If are smoking while on vacation, that is a personal choice (and there is no judgment by your friends at Tropical Beach Resorts) but please don't smoke in front of other people. It's an established common courtesy in today's travel. We want every guest to fully enjoy their stay and be happy!

Yeah the "park" with shuffleboard and the heated pool was really nice. We also liked the "old Florida" style one story buildings. We stayed directly across from the heated pool but also just a short walk from the No. 1 beach in the US. Check-in was simple and the coffee at the office was available most all day. Try the Jamaican Me Crazy; really good. Look for the Quaker Parrots; they have a nest in the palm tree just outside the office. You can park your car and not use it for the rest of your stay. A small grocery store, a drug store with a Post Office annex, and a number of good restaurants are within walking distance from the resort, and like I said, the beach is just a short walk away. This resort has all you could need for a relaxing Florida vacation. We hope to be back soon.

My husband and I have been coming to Tropical Shores for 17 years. We have stayed at all of their hotels and are always impressed by the accommodations and staff. We feel like we are coming to our beach home away from home when we are here and the staff always remembers us and treats us that way too! Tropical Shores has become our beach getaway for generations of our family and our friends. Highly recommend for a wonderful vacation on the most beautiful beach!!

Beach Yoga is wonderful and love having so many beach rentals available. Great location!!

These are actually friends of mine that live in Orlando! It is such an honor that they come back and stay at Tropical Beach Resorts. This couple could stay anywhere they wanted.. and they truly love coming here. They have stayed at the hotel when I didn't even know they had reservations nor did I have any idea they posted a review! They started coming here maybe 15 or more years ago and still find it the home away from home that they fell in love with. We treasure them and all of our guests that stay with us!

We stayed in the Boutique room at Sara Sea and were very happy with the hotel. It was spotless and the bed was very comfortable. The best part is that it's only a short walk to the private beach. However, they had a pipe burst in the room next to us and they were doing demolition work early one morning and it carried over until the next day. Other than this incidence, we liked the hotel and would recommend it.

Thank you so much for your great review and we are very happy to know that you had a great time staying with us! We also wanted to apologize again for the pipe and our neighbors putting up a fence next to us. We are glad to say that the pipe situation was quickly corrected and was contributed to a "very well used," garbage disposal in the apartment next door. The fence is completed and hopefully a new fence will not be put up for many years! We look forward to seeing you again and appreciate your kindness and wonderful review.
