We spent 4 nights at Sand Cay and were very happy. The unit was well-furnished, including kitchen items. You can just relax at the pool or on the beach, or shop and dine at St. Armand's Circle or Bradenton Beach. The Sea Hagg in Cortez is a great place to shop too. Southeastern Guide Dogs in Palmetto is 1 of...

Thanks for the great review. It seems like you took in many of the area attractions that are all an easy drive from our resort. We're glad you enjoyed your unit and our large pool area. We hope to see you again in the near future.

The condo was great but we had an issue with the water and dead fish. That cut our time in the water by two days and we were only there for 4 days. We rented a paddle board and lost out in using it because of the dead fish and the smell.

Thanks for the review. Unfortunately our entire area did experience a natural occurring Gulf of Mexico event called Red Tide. It occurs very infrequently and are truly sorry that it happened during your stay. We hope you think of us again in the future and can see how beautiful our beaches truly are.

We had a great vacation. Our Condo was clean and attractive. The only thing we thought could be improved would be to update the bathrooms. We had a unit reserved that was back just a little but we were moved upon arrival to a beach front unit as they were doing some updating in the other area. We were very...

Accommodations were clean, quiet, comfortable. Delighted to have access to beach lounges. Nice location and easy trip to museums! Wish that units had more information on local restaurants since signs are difficult to read when driving.

The views in this unit are amazing. Very comfortable master bed, clean unit. Unfortunately our stay was cut short by Hurricane Hermine, but we enjoyed the few days we were there. Private beach area was nice. We would definitely rent again.

The location of the property right on the beach was incredible. We had a gorgeous view from our room overlooking the ocean. But we were on the 3rd floor, in room 319, which was definitely a pain in the butt. The stairs and endless walkways made it about a 7 minute walk to the beach. Not as easy and accessible...

Had a great time at the condo we selected at the Sand Cay Beach Resort. It was a casual and relaxed atmosphere and very safe for all the children to play with their friends. The condo was laid out well and was decorated nicely. It was clean and had a lot to offer my family. We had a great time...

We were very happy when we got to the condo. We were surprised by how spacious the living area was. The rooms are very nice and clean. Every light and airy. The kitchen was very nice and it had everything we needed! We really liked that it was so close to the beach!

Unit was clean, Bathrooms need an upgrade badly, Bed was good, Front office employees were exceptional, ground floor unit was good, pool was good. Complex needs to install some sort of walkways thru the high grass to get to both the beach and the pool. Landscaping is lacking A.C. worked well.Thi

Thanks for your review. We're glad you chose us for your beach trip. We will certainly pass along your comments about our front office staff. We'll also take a look at your comments about walkways to the beach and pool. We try to keep things as natural as possible but will definitely take a look.

We were hesitant about driving down south because of possibly encountering Hurricane Hermine at the beginning of Labor Day weekend 2016. But, we were brave and the business office told us there was not a state of emergency for the area. Once we made it to Longboat Key and to our unit, the winds had to be whipping and blowing...

Thanks for still visiting us during the blustery Labor Day weekend. Luckily the weather improved as the weekend progressed and you were able to enjoy our large pool area and our incredible views of the Gulf of Mexico. We hope to see you again in the near future when you travel plans call for a beach getaway.

“Like everywhere else, fold out couch/bed not very comfortable. Other than that furnishings and kitchen items well stocked and in good condition. View from room was not "full ocean view", cost was same for other resorts with FULL view.”

“We have stayed in various units....I found them all to be relatively the same...I wouldn't worry too much about it. Personally, I like to be on the top floor but that is just my preference, We didn't here any noise when staying on the lower floors.”
