(ID #213) This is my family's third time staying at the Surf Beach Resort and we absolutely love it. The resort is always kept so nice and everytime we come back something new has been added or remodeled. The pool area is kept perfectly clean and has a great view of the beach. The staff is also very professional. attentive and friendly. Johns Pass is right up the road and we enjoy going there to shop, have dinner, etc. My husband loves to fish and caught quite a bit on our trip this last week. We will definitely go back again.

This place was great!! Go stay. It has great location and you can go get ice cream right across the street at Super Scoops. The beach is right there and there's a waffle house. Anita was excellent and was responsive to all our requests.
There is no fitness room but there is a gym 2 blocks away where you can get a 7
day pass for $35.

This was one of the best places we have ever stayed in Florida. Beautiful beach view, wonderful room. We cooked in the kitchen to save money on food and watched spectacular sunsets from the balcony. Quiet and nice to have 2 bedrooms and bathrooms. Anita at the front desk was the best and the sno cones across the street were awesome. Close to St. John's Pass and other fun stuff to do! We will definitely stay here again!

We had a wonderful time drinking coffee in the morning on the balcony. We could watch joggers, bikers, hand gliders, birds, and people enjoying the summer sun on the beautiful beach from the comfort of our unit. The living and dining area was small, but the unit had two bedrooms and two baths. I would have liked twin beds in one of the rooms to accomodate my son and his uncle. Overall, the clean and tastefully appointed condo met our needs and we would consider staying at the Surf again.

The condo was comparable to a 5 star timeshare and the view from the balcony was perfect.

I wouldn't really call Surf Beach Resort a "Resort". It's more like a building of condos with a pool. But I noticed while i was out walking that most of the even very small motels have "Resort" in the title so I guess that's just the way things are named in the area. The resort was nice, but the area seemed a bit run down to me so we will not be going there again. The areas north of John's Pass seemed a bit nicer. Especially the Reddington Beach areas.

Rooms - the rooms were fine. They were clean and spacious, although not as roomy as I imagined based on the other reviews. Everything was nicely decorated and in working order.
Pool - just ok. Pretty darn small actually. But it was clean and well kept and the water was comfortably warm. There was also an average sized hot tub.
Beach - be prepared for a long walk to the beach. The building is ocean front but it's probably around 200 yards to the beach and once you get there, there's no restroom in sight.

We were there on the 4th of July and there was a huge 4th of July celebration going on between the "resort" and the beach. They were parking cars on the beach and there was live music, a volleyball tournament and other activities. Around 6 pm boats started gathering just offshore and by the time the fireworks started around 9 pm, the beach was pretty much packed. This celebration was not associated with the resort. I think it was the city of St Pete.

My advice would be to definitely not stay here. The "Resort" is filthy dirty. The carpet was so black if made me sick to walk on it. The beds left us with back aches and no sleep. The furniture was so old I wondered where it came from- the resort is only 4 years old. I paid for one night stay ahead of time and told the establishment that a refund was deserving. I recieved no refund but was informed that our unit was closed down after our stay. That should alert everybody that this place is horrible!!!!!! Please don't fall for the internet advertisment. It is totally not true. The resort will take your money and leave you with a bad vacation.
Thank You.
