“Long haul to the beach!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 May 2013

It was a great hotel nice and clean. I would stay there again except for the fact that the trip to the beach was a great surprise! The hotel is located right across the street from the beach access but the trip through the sand dunes is long and bumpy! The water and the sand was beautiful though once you got there. I went with my mother age 74 and it was not a good choice for us!

We are sorry to hear that the walk to the beach was challenging. The sand on Siesta Beach is 99% quartz and because it is so soft and sugary, walking through it can be difficult depending on the age and ability of the person. We are happy that you enjoyed the facilities and welcome you back!

We absolutely loved it, we couldn't have chosen a better place for vacation. Bob and the staff couldn't have been more accomodating. We loved the location, private beach was a 3-4 minute walk directly across from this place, restaraunts and shops all within walking distance. We will definately be back!

Room Tip: we had the Honeymoon suite, loved the private pool!!

Wonderful! So happy to hear your vacation was a pleasurable one. Being situated so close to the beach and yet so close to Siesta Village is the best of both worlds. Looking forward to seeing you here at the Sea Spray again!

We just got back from Florida. After a few days at Disney World (the kids' part of the vacation), we headed to Siesta Key and The Sea Spray Resort (for the parents' vacation). We could not have been happier with our stay! Manager Bob was so fantastic about making sure we had what we needed, and that we were happy with our rental. Talk about hospitality!
We stayed in Unit 2-Heliconia. It was clean, beautifully decorated, and everything we could have needed was provided (including dishwasher soap, shampoo, linens, paper towels, beach towels and beach chairs, and laundry facilities!). The beautifully maintained pool was right outside the door, complete with a fire pit, grills, lots of outdoor seating, and a plethora of pool toys for the kids. The beach itself is just across the street. And what a beach it is....the beach access is private, therefore, not very crowded, and gorgeous white sand with plenty of sand dollars! Thanks, Bob and The Sea Spray Resort, for a wonderful end to our family vacation. We CANNOT wait to return!!

Nothing makes us feel better than to hear that our guests enjoyed their stay! Sarasota and Siesta Key make for such a great family vacation. We have families that come year after year to our one-of-a-kind beach. It really doesn't get any better than Siesta. We do look forward to seeing you again!

My wife and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary on April 30th and wanted to try something different than the typical big-chain hotel. We found Sea Spray Resort on the internet and were impressed with the reviews. We recently spent 6 wonderful days at the Sea Spray (way too short). The property not only lived up to the great reviews, it exceeded them as far as my wife and I are concerned. It all started with the staff. Bob made us feel at home from the very moment we arrived. Without any hesitation, he ensured that an anniversary basket filled with Asti and goodies awaited my wife upon our arrival. During our stay, he was kind, hospitable and eager to ensure that our vacation was terrific. I really enjoyed getting to know him. Charles, the resident maintenance person, was also a pleasure to meet. He always offered a kind word and assistance. As far as the resort itself, my wife and I loved our room (Seagull). It was spacious, clean and really felt like home. We particularly enjoyed the balconies -- especially the one overlooking Canal. I already miss sitting on that balcony with my wife and having a drink while talking about anything but work. The pool and great surroundings made us feel like we were visiting a friend in Siesta Key. Very relaxing... especially that hammock! And the very close proximity to the beautiful, amazing beach made it very easy to enjoy the pool one moment and the beach a few minutes later. My wife and I will always remember and cherish our trip to Sea Spray. We look forward to visiting again... wish it was right now!! Thanks Bob and staff for memories that will last a lifetime!

Every aspect was A1 great. Bob, the resort manager, was very helpful and a very down to earth guy. Our room (Seahorse unit) was very clean, safe, and quiet. This unit had 2 bedrooms, living room, bathroom, and kitchen. Also, the location was great. Open the door of our unit and within a 4 minute walk you are on an awesome sugar sand beach away from the crowds of the main Siesta Key beach. The pool area was also great at the resort complete with fire pit, and grills for cooking. I generally will not use grills other than at my house but I did here because they were clean! The property maintenance guy did a nice job each day spritzing up the property. Other employees of the resort were extremely well mannered and helpful. Other family member rented rooms the week we were there and all had similar experience. My wife and I are somewhat picky so to give an excellent means it was up to par. I usually skedaddle down to Sanibel and Captiva for my April vacation. This place was better and at half the price. We will be back.

This was our first visit to Siesta Key, and we are so pleased with the Sea Spray Resort. Our accomodations were pristine, the decor was inviting, we didn't want to leave. The hospitality shown to us by Ann and Bob made us feel welcomed. They had everything we needed for the beach, pool, kitchen, laundry and more. The location was within walking distance to the beach, shopping and dining. We are looking forward to coming back.

Our stay at Sea Spray Resort was fantastic! Bob and the rest of the staff were very kind and hospitable. The location was close to the beach access and shops and dinning. The condo had everything we needed from beach towels to umbrellas and lawn chairs for the beach. The room was incredibly clean, functional and pleasant. The grounds were well kept and the pool was heated and very clean. This will be the only place we stay when visiting Siesta Key. We would take this condo any day over a 5 star resort. We were sad to leave and can't wait to come back!! :-)
