Reviewed 11 May 2013

On the beach with great views and immediate access to new paved beach walk as well as the lovely natural beach. Was much less crowded than Clearwater. Also short walk to conveniences such as Publix and Walgreen's as well as excellent restaurants such as Middle Ground,the Pearl,and Gigi's. Pleasant beach walk to Caddy's casual restaurant at the south end or John's Pass at the north with parasailing and fishing both available there for about $60. Great ice cream at Kilwins with a 2 for 1 coupon currently available out of one of the big free tourist magazines. Pool area at the resort was kept clean and neat. Staff were very pleasant and responded quickly to requests for additional coffee,frying pans,paper towels etc. Three tv's in the 2 bedroom unit (although in good weather nature provides a healthier and more enjoyable experience.) allow everyone to have their program choice. Nice sized balcony with 4 chairs. If one was looking to make future improvements we might suggest: changing the colour scheme to brighter more neutral colours rather than the current blue,going for more contemporary art on the walls,modernizing the couch,painting over the rust that can appear on the edge of appliances such as the fridge in such humid environments,and adjusting or replacing overlapping blinds which did not always want to overlap. Overall a very pleasant place with helpful friendly people which added up to a very enjoyable holiday. Be sure to tell them if you are arriving after 5pm. Your key will be put in a secure lock box and you will be given a code to access it. There will be no one at the front desk after 5. The system worked perfectly for us as we knew our arrival would be around midnight.

Clean, big, and beautiful rooms. It was located in a great area. The staff was helpful and eager to get us to come back again. It was a little far back on the beach, so I was bummed that I couldn't hear the waves at night, but that was a very minimal thing to trade for the value and quality of the room. I am very impressed.

Room Tip: ID#253 Oceanfront of course!

We are sorry about the distance between the building and the ocean, but Treasure Island is the widest beach in the area which allows our guests to enjoy their privacy while on the beach.

Condo was as shown in pictures, clean and enough room for 6 although did not use the pull out couch. Asked for twin beds in the 2nd bedroom and was accommodated although they gave us a handicap room which does not have a bath tub (both bathrooms with showers). Needed a tub for my 2 yr old so they switched us to the more normal room with a queen in the 2nd bedroom. Our room was on the 2nd floor which is the lowest floor since the parking is on the first level. Would rather have been in floors 4-6 just to be further away from the pool crowd but all rooms have a great view so it was not a problem and would stay again even on lower floors. Surf Beach is not your typical resort, in fact I'm not really sure you can call it a resort. It was a condo building. Once you checked in you were pretty much on your own. You will not see employees unless you are looking or requesting, except for the occasional maintenance man or maid cleaning after a checkout. In fact, after 5:00 pm there is no one manning anything, just a number to call if you need something. Don't get me wrong, I am not complaining and in fact I preferred it that way but if you are looking for pampering or a bar/restaurant, fitness center or beach activities/amenities that you would find at a real resort, look elsewhere. They do have some beach chairs, a couple of bikes & some pool rafts stuck in the corners of the parking areas to use on a first come first serve basis but that wasn't even really made clear at check-in. You need to ask or you won't get anything more than your room number, your parking spot and your emergency number during check-in. As for the condo, the only complaint, at least in our room (202), was that it was time for new mattresses. Both beds sunk in towards the middle. Also, toilet flushing noise from rooms above is very noticeable (more than should be). Still believe overall an excellent value if you don't need a real resort.

Room Tip: Recommend floors 4-6 just for a little more privacy from individuals at the pool looking at your dec...

I booked this condo because our usual condo in Redington was already booked during the week of our Anniversary. I now think I have found the condo I will try to book every year. We were really pleased with the condo. Pictures are true to what is shown. Great location. Beach is very wide in this area but to us it was an easy walk. The condo is well decorated and clean. I have already recommended to a friend. The only negative experience was the dryer was not working and I reported it. A man came up to look at it and was unable to repair. He said someone would be back shortly to fix it and no one ever showed up. I had to dry our towels and clothes the old fashion way... outside on the chairs and railing. No too bad since the weather was since but stiff towels and sheets. Just an inconvenience but other than that we had a great experience. Friends lived locally and came to visit. They were very accomidated and let them park at the resort for the day. This was greatly appreciated.

This was a really nice place. We were glad we chose it! The rooms were clean and the staff was eager to help. We spent many hours on the porch watching the waves and sunset. Having a washer and dryer in condo was helpful too. The pool was clean and not too crowded.
