We took our very first trip to Siesta Key the first week of May and stayed at the Banyan Tree Resort in the "Figi" room. It was just the two of us and the room worked out really well. It was very quiet at the resort that week which was really nice. We pretty much had the pool to ourselves other than a great group of guys from Detroit. The room: Pros: Very clean, full kitchen, very bright. Loved the large screened in porch. When we were at the room (which wasn't often) we were sitting on the porch or at the pool. Charcoal grill was not cleaned out by previous renter but we were ok with cleaning it out before we threw some burgers on it. Cons: you are going to hear this I believe pretty much everywhere you go, the bed was not good. Queen size but pretty hard. We are used to a nice soft King at home so we are spoiled. Bathroom was small. Definitely not a room that two can hang out with while getting ready to head out. Other than that the room was perfect for the two of us. The pool: small but great off season. Rained for two days and the pool and filter was filled with leaves however my husband had no problem cleaning that out for the managers. He loves his pool! Location: Perfect! One block from the beach and about the same distance the other way to "The Village" which was cool. Very close to a convenient store. First day we drove into Sarasota to the Publix (about 10 minutes) however we could of probably got everything we needed for the same price within walking distance. Would we return? Most definitely YES.
