“A hidden gem!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 January 2012

This a is a great little resort that no one knows about. Every room has its own private deck and hot tub!
How cool is that?
Help yourself to bikes and kayaks. Enjoy the seclusion.
My wife and I have stayed here three times in the last four years and hope to visit again next winter.
We love Siesta Key and wouldn't stay anyplace else in the area.

Just got back from an amazing long weekend away. Turtle Beach Resort lived up to our every expectation. It is a beautiful, secluded slice of paradise. Rooms are spacious, clean and the views are breathtaking. Canoes, kayaks and bikes are available for guest use, private hot tubs on spacious deck outside our room, heated pool and plenty of lounge chairs to just lay back and relax. We had never been to Siesta Key and didn't know what to expect. Location of the resort is perfect if you want to be away from the "tourist" but close enough to get to everything the area has to offer. Gail and David, the owners, are on site and offer great suggestions for restaurants in the area. They also have special offers from many of the gourmet restaurants in the area. Turtle Beach is a short walk away and the resort has beach chairs available for guest use. We wouldn't hesitate to go back next week!

I searched and searched websites in hopes to find a nice place my husband and I could go relax and have a romantic time together. After 2 kids and almost 4 years we had not had any alone time and wanted to find something "special". Gail (the owner) helped me on the phone and making sure we got what we needed-very sweet. I can not begin to tell you how lovely this place is for just that. We stayed at the Inn #1 and it was so quaint and peaceful. I love having your own private patio and hot tub. It was so realxing and romantic!! We walked around and layed in the hammocks...it actually started raining the second day we were there with very gusty winds but it didnt stop us from having a great time. We met Dave (the owner) as it was time for us to leave and he was trying to find all the chairs that had blown away, and even though he was pre occupied with cleaning up the grounds from the storms he stopped and talke dto us and asked how we liked our stay and gave us some tips where to eat. very pleasent!! We hope to go back every year!!! I fully reccommend Turtle Beach Resort! A litte on the expensive side but ends up being worth it and everyone should treat themselves atleast once-but then you will always crave going back! LOL!

My wife and I are retired Sarasota locals and were driving around one Friday morning, just touring Siesta Key Turtle Beach area. We thought, "Wouldn't it be fun some weekend to stay in a 'getaway' cottage by the water." So....we checked out a number of places of potential interest and discovered Turtle Beach Resort.

We met Dave (the owner) who was proud to show us several of the accommodations, all of which are located on the water front. We were literally "blown away" by the facilities, and decided then and there to book a nice place for that very weekend. We are spontaneous sorts of people!

It turns out that the mini-resort is a slice of "old Florida" style reminiscent of Tommy Bahama-like appointments, but that allusion doesn't do justice to the creative, subtle artistic appointments in each cottage. And then there is the totally private outdoor hot-tub in a small secluded lanai with each cottage, perfect for secret romantic interludes.

The rooms are impeccably maintained, clean and comfortable, with everything provided to meet one's needs. There is also free use of kayaks, bicycles, spinning rods/reels (all in excellent condition). Of particular note were the several small artful groupings of outdoor chaisse lounges, chairs, tables strategically placed for private conversational areas in addition to chairs and benches on the docks/piers for fishing or whiling away restful time by the water.

The area is so successfully designed for privacy of guests that we only saw two other people at any one time in our area over a three-day period, despite the fact that there were many guests checked in at the time. So.....no crowds here, friends.

For top notch dining, ask Dave about the nearby Miguel's and Bella Roma restaurants.....which are two of the finest dining spots in the Sarasota area.

We will definitely be back. Parenthetically, we had no complaints about this place at all, and we are picky travelers.

Traveling through Florida on our Honeymoon we wanted our last night to be really special. That's why we choose the Turtle beach Resort. We stayed in the Jungle cottage and are so glad we did, it was awesome! We couldn't have asked for a nicer place. We used the kayaks, bicycles, and the private hot tub was incredible!! We look forward to going back next year for our anniversary.
