    What a great place to stay!

    It is a great quite location, outstanding friendly staff, it is on the beach, close to great restaurants! Cydney who is welcoming Marriott Bonvoy members is outstanding, welcoming, knowledgeable, smart and very capable. She helped me with complected payments and very helpful! I appreciate her help! All of their staff members including the housekeeping staff are consistent everyday and they are very helpful, friendly and professional. We stayed on the 5th floor golf view room with balcony. Beautiful views. We enjoyed long walks at the beach and collected beautiful seashells. They have healthy, high quality and delicious food choices. Thank you for the wonderful stay Sheraton Sand Key Resort team. Sometimes children and people might be loud in the pool and hot tub area. They have free parking and no resort fees, that is a big plus. We took a free trolley to downtown area and it is very convenient. We will come back next Spring!

    January stay

    Overall it was a good spot. Hotel was a standard room view was nice. The bathroom with quite small though. Service was good. And room was clean. We tried both restaurants which were good but menu felt pretty limited also beer 6.50 a bottle. My one complaint is that this hotel had a massive beach but they charge 35 dollars a day for chairs which seemed excessive and I hadn’t seen it on the site before going. I understand that a public beach would do this but give that the beach is for the hotel why the charge. I think they could have advertised that the trolley is free and let people know about the chairs better.

    Great resort but "meh" rooms

    The resort's amenities are awesome - tennis and pickleball courts, swimming pool and hot tub, convenience stores, bars and restaurant - you name it. The rooms could have been better. It's like a sandwich with great cheese and fillings, but mediocre bread ! Wish each room came with a microwave - the communal ones were dirty.

    On the beach but still a walk.

    This was a nice pick. It had hammocks on the sand. It was also a little walk directly to the beach….they had a cart that takes people but I never saw anyone take it and never saw anyone manning. The rooms are clean and this was a comfortable stay…Although they had business meetings here…once monopolizing the pool for a game. Ordered from Turtle Bay and found on my receipt later that they charged me their own tip without authorization. I always tip cash so this was disappointing that they took liberties that way. Look for Ashley Judd’s dress from dolphin tale 2 in the lobby. Take the free trolley shuttle..lots of food options, sight-seeing, and shopping.
