“Don't stay anywhere else”
Reviewed 25 August 2014

We are a family of five and we stayed here in august 2014. We couldn't stop congratulating ourselves on our choice of hotel. The apartment was clean and well furnished with oven, microwave, massive fridge freezer/ washer/dryer/ dishwasher. And they were generous with cleaning products so we had sponge and washing up liquid and enough dishwasher tablets for our whole stay. We were on floor 5 of 6 after requesting a high floor. All apartments have decent sized balconies which face the beautiful Treasure Island beach. Worth it for the sunsets alone. The building is literally on the beach, so no roads to cross from the pool area to the sea - great for families with smaller children like us. Lovely pool. Walking distance to restaurants and bars along the lovely beach walkway. Once you've shut the windows it is as quiet as the grave in the apartment. Hotel staff couldn't have been friendlier or more accommodating. Our single moan is that we only booked five days and wished we were there longer.

This resort allowed our family to have one of the most memorable vacations we have ever had. It is perfectly located! From our balcony, we could watch the dolphins every morning and a gorgeous sunset every evening. The resort has a great pool located right between the resort and beach - a great spot to cool off! There are several restaurants within walking distance, including a great breakfast place across the street and the Super Scoops Ice Cream shop. The condo had all our family needed to prepare our own breakfasts and a few quick lunch/dinners during our stay and the grocery store is a few minutes drive away. In suite laundry was especially convenient. We can't wait to go back!

Room Tip: All the rooms faced the Gulf. I would recommend a room on the fourth to sixth floor for a better vi...

My better half and I decided to stay for a 3 day getaway from the kids on the TI Beach.
The area is absolutely gorgeous, very spacious and in walking distance to everything.
We stayed in a condo on the 6th floor - view was amazing and the condo offered everything we wanted and more. We were able to cook breakfast in the morning without needing to go out, flat screen TV in the bedrooms and living room. Comfortable couch and a quaint dining area. Also had a In unit washer and dryer, and may I just say - the staff was AWESOME- very knowledgeable and assisted with all our needs, always smiling when we got off the elevator and welcomed each time as well. Eve - thank you for the Middle Grounds Grille suggestion- it truly was finger licking good!
Pool stayed heated and the jacuzzi was very enjoyable in the afternoon when it was peaceful and quiet. Back trail lights up at night and is perfect for a romantic walk.
Over all- fantastic stay- wonderful for a romantic getaway or a family stay. Thank You Surf Beach!

The room was plenty spacious enough for a family of four. Beds were not comfy. The walk to the shoreline was really long. Pool was small. Also, my 11 yr old daughter insisted she saw rat under a lawn chair by pool. After reading some reviews a lot of other people had the same complaint.

Dear christy324,

Thank You for choosing Sunsational Beach Rentals LLC. Your home away from home.

We are happy you found the room plenty spacious for your family of four, but are very disappointed to learn the condo beds were not comfortable. All of our units are individually owned and it would be very helpful to find out which unit you stayed in so we can resolve this issue for our future guests.
We apologize for the inconvenience your daughter encountered about a rat. Due to high volume of food leftovers that are discarded inside the beach trash cans we unfortunately are unable to keep away all rodents. However, please be assured that we are placing bait traps around our property to minimize this issue.
Treasure Island is one of the widest beaches in the area and this is mainly due to safety of the people and all of the Hotels, Resorts and homes for when the flooding season begins due to Hurricanes.

We hope that you might consider giving The Surf Beach Resort another chance for your business.

Thank You,
Management.

Place is clean and nice. Centrally located...can walk to restaurants and publix if needed. Walk to beach is far,but no further than the other hotels. Pool is a bit small,but its a beach vacation. Nice place would stay again if price was right. Had early check in and late check out. Girl at Desk was very accomodating.

Room Tip: 2nd floor is right above pool area not much privacy if you want to sit out on lanai. Get 3rd floor...

Great property in perfect location, you can walk to shops restaurants markets and bars or jump in car for quick 5min drive to Johns Pass for some entertainment, jet skiing fishing or shopping. Eve was great for information and to help with all needs. Rooms are good size and fully equipped all with amazing ocean views and that fabulous sunset. Pool was nice size and was never really crowded, hot tub was nice at night for relaxing, beach is a little bit of a walk but never a problem since once you get there the water was awesome. The property does not supply beach chairs but people like us who fly there, buy beach chairs and leave them for the next guest to use,so check to see if there are any before you buy. This is definitely a family resort so be prepared for kids of all ages. Had a great week and will definitely return..

Room Tip: We were in room 405 great views and a couple floors above pool.
