Clean and beautiful pool/ocean area

Old hotel rooms need re done

Easy beach access. Easy check in and check out. Basic room, comfortable. Great for a short stay, would come back.

Long walk to the beach, pool wasn’t set up for kids, lots of overcrowding, baby pool was super small, not near any downtown restaurants

It was 4th of July weekend so the hotel was very full. We had a little delay in getting our room on Friday, but after that the rest of the weekend went well. The staff even short handed was very nice and helpful. The dining offerings were very good. The cleanliness of the hotel Was good and we constantly saw staff cleaning.

Pool was too small… otherwise everything was great

Had a wonderful time at sand key. The staff were friendly and the golf cart service to the beach was wonderful. The pool was nice and the food in the restaurants was amazingly delicious! My only concerns were lack of recycling options (and there were lots of bottles and recyclable cups around) and what was up on the TVs in the lobbies.

Private Beach and Staff were wonderful. The trolley was great!

Old structure. No room service provided for 5 days. Personnel stiff and unavailable to understand nerds of a family with little kids. Not going back, even if the location close to the beach was very good.

Booked a room with view, but the room had the view of tennis court and parking lot, wry disappointed and not offered what has been paid for. I would never go back there. Also the check in staff was not at all friendly.

The property is located right by the ocean, which is its selling point. It has a tennis and pickleball courts. It has a pool and a hot tub. Those are the only positives it has. The room assigned was less than subpar for the type of hotel it advertises to be and at the price point paid. It's outdated and needs maintenance. The light switches unit for the entry hall was dislodged from the wall, which not only isn't a great aesthetic look but is also a safety hazard. The service at the restaurant is slow, and the breakfast buffet is quite embarrassing for its paucity. This should, at most, be a $150-200 per night for regular room hotel, and not multiples of that. Not likely to stay again.

Pool was far too small, little seating around it. Huge beach, but little amenities offered. Only dining option at 5pm was a loud ‘bar’ with obnoxious folks attending some conference

I loved that the beach was so close. One thing I would of appreciated is that is the staff was able to clean our room in the middle of our 4 night stay.

This hotel had it all - pool, poolside bar, beach access, restaurants. It was very clean and rooms very very quiet even though it was full! Would definitely go back!

Dear alexander, Thank you for taking time out of your day to provide us your honest feedback. Based on your feedback we saw that you rated your Intent to Recommend an “3 out of 5” and that is very much appreciated. However, we also noticed that there were several missed opportunities. Please accept our apology for not meeting all your expectations during your stay. Although we are constantly renovating, replacing the worn with new, making improvement and changes, we realize there is still much more to be done when it comes to the needed transformations, that vision becomes clearer as the Sheraton Sand Key Resort continues to evolve the Sheraton brand. I do hope your travels bring you back to the beautiful and tranquil Island of Sand Key and give the Sheraton Sand Key Resort another chance to better serve your needs.

Dear Guest, Thank you for taking the time to share your comments regarding your recent stay at the Sheraton Sand Key Resort. We are so sorry to see that you did not enjoy your time with us. We try to ensure every guest has a wonderful experience and when we fail to do this we take it very seriously. Providing the highest level of hospitality is our number one priority and we sincerely apologize for falling short of meeting your expectations. The beach is a bit of a walk; when the resort was built, the beach was much closer to the hotel; actually, right up to the break wall, you could easily see the water from your room. Then between Mother Nature and the Sand Key jetty being built in 1975, the sand has been washed in a southerly direction over the years which has caused a very wide beach. We do understand the distance can be an inconvenience which is the reason we have added a 6-person complementary beach shuttle to get you back and forth to the beach whenever needed. We have also added beach wagons which will conveniently help you get your children or what is needed down to the shore to enjoy your day at the beach! I am very sorry about the overcrowding of the pool area, our resort is very popular for our pool and get many families to come stay with us. Clearwater Beach is 2.5 miles away from our resort and there are many restaurants along the strip that are very popular in the area. We have a Jolley Trolley that can take you right on to Clearwater Beach! Please accept our apology for not meeting all your expectations during your stay. I do hope your travels bring you back to the beautiful and tranquil Island of Sand Key and give Sheraton Sand Key Resort another chance to better serve your needs.

Dear Guest, Thank your for taking time out of your day to provide us your honest feedback! We truly appreciate when guests share their feedback. I am happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay! Please accept our apologies for not being as quick to pick up any stray cups and bottles. It is very important to make sure our public areas are clean and we are very sorry for not exceeding expectations. We have two Lobby TV’s one at the concierge, which shows the weather and events, and another one in front of Rust’s Bistro, which shows their menu. Thank you once again for reaching out!
