I was skeptical about not having a Gulf front view. Our unit was on the 10th floor, T1002. All clean and up to date furniture. Everything was in working order. The biggest thing was getting the first few hours under your belt which were unpacking the car and then go to get the groceries for a weeks stay. There are...

Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay at Sarasota Surf & Racquet Club. It sounds like you were pleased with the cleanliness, spaciousness and most of the furnishings in unit T1002. It is nice to open the windows in the lanai for fresh air and to hear the sound of the surf. We will share your...

We just came home from a wonderful stay at the Sarasota Surf and Racquet Club. Although this was our first stay, it will not be our last. The grounds are immaculate. Very clean and well cared for. There are tennis courts, 2 pools, and barbecue areas on the property. We felt safe and secure. We loved leaving our flip flops...

We have stayed at the Sarasota Surf and Racquet Club the last three years. The location is perfect for walking or running the beach, and is only 1/2 a mile from Siesta Village. The rooms have kitchens and provide the feeling of being home, whether it is breakfast to start your day or a quick lunch. Washer and dryer are...

This is our favorite place to stay in Siesta Key. The price is well worth it. There were some good and not so good changes this year. The new crew setting up chairs was a much needed change that helps you get a chair on the beach. Before, you had to reserve one by 0800. Great job on that change....

This complex is beautiful, clean, well appointed with good courts and ok pools. The beach is divine. The community life could be better and I missed an outdoor screened in porch/lanai. The beach cabana rentals should be coordinated by the hotel, not the independent party and evening entertainment should be several nights a week vs. one night a week.

What a heavenly winter break for us at our second annual family reunion at the Sarasota Surf and Racquet Club on Siesta Key.
