This place definitely exceeded our expectations! Beautiful, 5 star facilities, you feel like you're in a very high class place just walking in from the conference side! I am a single mom, so this was just a leisure trip for my son and I, and this definitely felt like more of a splurge, but thankfully I got a great deal through work and a travel agency! I recently signed up for Starwood Rewards for Sheraton and Marriott properties, but was sad to learn that you only get to earn rewards if booked directly through them, which would've meant paying much higher, and not as great of a deal for the trip overall. However, the staff and facilities are wonderful, every staff member you encounter is friendly, courteous, helpful, and very upbeat, I'm thinking that Sheraton takes good care of their employees which can be seen by customers, and is why we have a great experience, because you have happy and dedicated employees there! Whoever our housekeeping staff were deserve a raise!! Everytime we came back to our room, it was like the first time, crisp fresh new room, all tidy and the bed perfect, the air up to cool us off, and everything cleaned up from whatever we may have left from that day. Each of the housekeeping staff we encountered were always smiles, very friendly, and always giving us whatever we'd asked for, and with a smile!! I know those ladies work so hard on each floor, they really deserve high praise!! My son could live at the pool, anywhere we go, and of course with the ocean right in front of us, he still loves the pool the most, but as soon as we went down to the beach he was all laughs and smiles in the waves and warm water of the ocean!! More than enough shells to fill a suitcase if you wanted to too!! It is a hike to the beach, but thankfully by day 2, we realized the golf carts were to take guests to and from the pool area and beach, which was a lifesaver on the hot days!! It really is a beautiful facility! I don't drink myself, but I did notice that all of the adults around the pool took advantage of the poolside bar, and seemed very pleased, esp with whatever concoction comes in the sand pail bucket, those seemed popular! And they also have non alcoholic versions for kids and those who don't drink alcohol like myself. I usually am found at the hot tub vs the pool, but this trip I utilized the ocean and the pool moreso. Their hot tub is so incredibly hot, I couldn't go past my feet, and I've been in alot of hottubs, but just couldn't bear the heat in this one, not even at night when it was cool, but there was only a timer and the pool guy didn't seem to have any other way of turning it down or changing it. The pool staff were all very helpful, kind, and always prompt in filling the towel bin, which they seem to go thru frequently! The pool area is always full of people, and the pool is much smaller than you'd expect for such a large facility, but thankfully you do have the ocean right there, which is the biggest pool of your life! I do recommend whenever they update, to increase the pool size for sure! As far as where to eat there, they have 4 restaurants there, a poolside cafe during the day for small finger foods, snacks, pizza, and hot dogs + drinks, the poolside bar; then inside they have the island grille for midday which has good food, and staff is very friendly + kids get free soft serve after their meal, which of course made my son very happy! Inside they have a very fancy Bistro restaurant, which we did not utilize, not really our style, esp for just myself and my son, more for couples or business people. The mainstay tavern was a good sit down sport bar / restaurant we did utilize twice. Pricing is average, food was pretty good, and of course for those who like an alcoholic drink and sports, it's catered towards that, but they keep it family friendly for those of us with kids, which I did appreciate! This is a great mix of upper class style vacationing for business/couples and those of us vacationing with family, so you can't go wrong either way, it feels like a big splurge either way, and in a good way! I forgot to mention that I rented beach equipment from gulf coast baby, beach, and bike rentals which was great, but Sheraton has sand toys for the kids to use, which we did not know until after our first day there going to the beach and seeing the buckets lined up for the kids, so I know for next time, but if you want life jackets, baby or beach equipment, I definitely recommend utilizing them, they were wonderful, had everything I needed, and they work with the Sheraton resort concierge to have everything there when you arrive, and then when you leave the concierge keeps it with them to give back when the company comes back for pick up, very simple and easy, and Kim Dittman was fantastic to work with in utilizing this along with Sheraton's concierge gentleman. My big recommendation here to make the family friendly atmosphere even better is a bigger pool, which would be beneficial since there were alot of couples vacationing without kids, and many did not like being surrounded and crowded by so many kids, which I could understand but there is only one pool, aside from the one foot baby pool next to it, and everyone was having fun! Also, I really feel for what you pay here for everything, they really should have kids eat free for every adult purchase, esp for us parents with kids, myself being a single parent. Most places are definitely catered towards families of four or more, so for myself being a single mom and one child, everything was a bit steeper than you'd think for two people, but the service and experience throughout our trip was wonderful and I'll take good customer service and experience first anytime, and we will definitely be back someday, my son is already begging to come back for our next vacation!! Thank you to all of the staff at Sheraton Sand Key, and please keep us single parents and families in mind, and keep doing a great job!! Always ask for gulf view if available after you book, sometimes you might get lucky like we did, with some that were available last minute, and the balconies are a plus. But if you can splurge, then get a pool side room, where you get the best gulf view plus the pool view = breathtaking, esp at sunset! Collapse

Wifi is horrible. I was told by front desk "it is probably slow, because a lot of people are on it". .... ya think? That's what folks do when staying at a hotel ... they use your wifi. Then, the same clerk connected me to "their help desk". ... which was in another country. TERRIBLE service. And, rooms very outdated. I was in room 531 which had a joining door to the house cleaning storage/break room. At 7:00 am until 3:00 pm - there was loud noises, talking, laughing, doors shutting, etc. I understand this is house cleaning's "space" , but why would the Sheraton put anyone in an adjoining room and charge for the noise is beyond me. Stay at Marriott across the street. Worth the extra money. Collapse

We just finished a week stay at Sheraton Sand Key Resort and had a wonderful stay. Staff was friendly and helpful. Restaurants had good food and we loved the pool bar and snack shop. The pool was perfect and we loved the private beach. The cost to rent a chair at the beach was a little pricey at $25/chair, which we didn't do, and it was a long walk to the beach but once you made the beach you didn't want to leave. We will definitely be back! Collapse

Hello beach fans , I just returned from another great beach escape in Florida at the Sheraton Sand Key Resort at Clear water beach area.This was a quick beach getaway for the holiday and also a house hunting trip to think about for a 2nd home. We had a super great time at this resort and it was everything we always look for in a beach resort .It had a great beach just a few hundred feet from the Gulf a huge pool and a super nice beach area at the resort itself. They would shuttle you and family and all your gear via a golf cart anytime you would like to go over to the big beach which is public and you can go for miles north or south almost to John's pass or north to Tampa .They had plenty of room to sit by their huge salt water pool or hot tub and a separate area to get away from the kids about a 50 yard walk away and it to connected to their own private beach area. The staff and workers were super nice to all guest and the rooms were great and the house keeping staff checked in to you each day to make sure you was happy with their service and more so to see if they could make you stay any better .It is just a mile away to the main Clear water beach city limits and you can walk across the Gulf Blvd. to the bay and lt too has a nice beach area that everyone can go to use.It also is real calm on that side. This is a super nice resort at a very affordable price for anyone to stay at. They also have four great restaurants and bar/lounges. The food is great and the price is better than average for this area that has so many great eateries. The next time you go to the Clear water beach area give this place a good look ,I would rate it as one of my top Gulf Coast beach resorts. I would like to also mention that we used the local transit bus and trolley system and you can go all day for a $ 5.00 ticket or purchase a week or 3 day pass for about $10.00 at any CVS Pharmacy or ticket agent and the bus stop is at the front entrance to the resort .This is a great way for everyone to get to see all of the beautiful sights and get on or off at any stop you would like . The buses run about every half hour on the hour also.You could go up or down the whole Gulf Coast as many times as you would like ,Great Deal !!! I hope you will give them a chance to make your trip here as great as they made our trip. Till next time, have a great beach trip Collapse

We stayed here 5/22-5/26 and had a great trip! The beach and water are beautiful and best of all it's private, unlike the hotels by the pier in Clearwater Beach. Like some other reviewers have mentioned, it is not a new hotel and it is not as modern as the new hotels in Clearwater but with that being said, it is clean and pretty well maintained and our room was spacious and updated! I would much rather stay here than at one of the newer hotels that only provide you access to a public beach across the street and that is a pretty crowded area! We preferred to be a little bit away from the crowds. I would def recommend this hotel, it is great for families too! The breakfast at Rusty's was good and the staff were friendly and helpful. Overall a great place to stay! Collapse
