Superb staff at a lovely facility
Sheraton Sand Key in Clearwater is one of the best locations on a beach that goes for miles. The staff are friendly, helpful, and efficient - reception, dining, housekeeping. Restaurants and food service are good. Rooms are clean, bright, and well-maintained. It's a winner in every way, for a short or long visit. Particular thanks to Maikel Ibrahim at Reception; April and Connie (?), servers; and Lujliana (? spelling) in Housekeeping.
Amazing views and walks on the beach
We stayed at the Sheraton Sand Key for a week in January 2024. POSITIVES: Friendly, helpful staff all over from Lauren at the front desk to Sarah at the bar to the pool staff to all of the housekeeping and maintenance staff-Wow!; (Sarah makes a great after dinner Mudslide drink.) Great view of the ocean from our room on the 7th floor; Awesome pool and beach area-easy to find an open lounge chair and the beach area was not busy and so beautiful. We walked the beach every day and there were so many shells!; We loved the location which was away from the busy Clearwater Beach but a quick 5 minute ride on the Jolley Trolley took us to Clearwater Beach and the many restaurants. The Jolley Trolley was free by showing your Sheraton room key card. (The Uber ride from the Tampa Airport was quick and only $43.) THINGS WE WOULD HAVE LIKED: Bathroom was pretty tiny but the newly remodeled room was nice.; The breakfast buffet was the same every day and for $20 we thought it could have been better.; They could use a coffee shop that makes lattes—I did walk over to the Marriott for a vanilla latte. A few more souvenirs in the little gift shop would have been nice. Overall, it was a nice place for a vacation and we certainly lucked out on the weather the week we were there.
Don’t stay here for “special occasions”
This resort and beach was a place of great joy to me… so special that my boyfriend (now fiancé) chose this resort to stay at for our surprise “engagement” weekend. He emailed the GM about his plans to help to make it amazing and to my shock (I learned about this after our trip) nothing was done to celebrate this occasion and the property was under construction at the time. Thrilled to be engaged but so disappointed with the service I used to love here.
Great Experience...despite construction
After reading the negative reviews due to construction, I was somewhat concerned about my choice; however, I was not disappointed in this hotel. Room was clean, location was EXCELLENT! Concerns: Doors close very loudly. Luckily, I was a parent of one of the 300 UW Marching Band students staying at the hotel and I understood the times and movement associated with the noise. How might the hotel quiet those doors so they don't slam? Mine slammed too! Location near beach is great. I know some have complained about the walk, but you are in Florida! Walking along the beach shouldn't be much different than walking to it! I liked the distance and natural environment. The beach was beautiful. I also appreciated the short drive to gas, dining, and other sites closer to Pier 60. Using my hotel card, I could have taken the trolley to this area. While I didn't, I thought it was a great amenity! Construction resumed on Tuesday after the New Year, but I really didn't notice it. As I left by 9:30.
The newly renovated rooms were very nice. We’ve been staying here for many years and is due for an upgrade and they’re doing a fabulous job. There was a little bit of noise with the ongoing construction, but it really didn’t bother us. The beach is great. the pool is nice fire pits great the outdoor bar is nicereasons we come back every year. Very relaxing day.
