Upon arrival, the property appears overly "rustic" and unfortunately super campy. We were shown our prime waterfront (and most expensive) cabin "Montego Bay" and initially thought we should not stay. We went ahead and gave it a go. There were cords hanging from the appliances in kitchen, TV and cable box cords hanging in living room, along with extension cords and surge protectors. The "lea-valor" style pull curtains were missing many segments which did not provide privacy or protection from light. The furniture was uncomfortable and threadbare. The dishes had a residue on them and had to be washed prior to using? The mismatched sheets were thin- There were several "plug ins" that we unplugged as the aroma was over bearing of fake chemicals. The amazing reviews online seem misleading. We had roaches and palmetto bugs inside, not joking- not acceptable even with a short "rain". I've lived in S FL for 50+ years and understand we are in the tropics- . We did not use the jacuzzi due to how we found the inside. The property is not well cared for or maintained. We did not receive daily maid service nor were informed it was on a "as need" basis and should be asked for when we checked in. The kayaks were dirty and full of black water? The bicycle I rode to the beach seemed fine. The AC worked.

We decided to spend our last two days of our Florida vacation here after a week at Disney and three days at Universal. Within minutes of checking in, we knew that two days was not nearly enough time. The staff were friendly and very helpful with restaurant recommendations and beach recommendations. After days of being in impersonal hotel rooms it was refreshing to be in a spacious little place of our own where everyone could be in their own space. We stayed in the Key West cottage and it was beautiful. The pictures on the website cannot capture the beauty and peacefulness of the resort. It truly felt like we were the only guests but I know that we weren't. My husband and I sat for hours on our deck just taking in the view and relaxing. We just got home and have already decided that we must go back. It is a truly beautiful place run by amazing people.

My significant other and I stayed for 3 nights in the Jasmine and had the most amazing time at the resort. The privacy of the courtyard and hot tub was glorious. I loved the swing on the dock and watching the sunrise and we had a full moon which shined so bright over the water. The sunsets were beautiful on Turtle Beach and spent most of our time with long walks watching the surf and shelling. We loved it and will be back soon.

Thanks again for an amazing stay.

Very charming property with a great location and nice features. We stayed in the Jasmine, which has an outdoor hot tub, hammock, reclining chairs, and privacy. 30 second walk to the dock of the bay, 5 minute walk to Turtle Beach.

There's a grill and plenty of outdoor seating to sit and get some sun or watch it set. Inside, there's a full-size kitchen with a small dining area that shares an open space with a living room that's perfect for 2 people, but could accommodate more.

A benefit of staying a the Turtle Beach Resort is the use of kayaks, bikes, towels, chairs, and umbrellas. Check in was detailed and friendly, and getting around Siesta Key and the surrounding area is very easy. Especially enjoyed taking the kayak a little ways south to a small beach that's only accessible via the water.

Some of the reviews I read described the property as older and not clean, but that hasn't been our experience at all. Everything has been terrific, and we're already thinking about returning in the future.
