Rated 1 out of 5 by Trendster LOW RENT!
I spent one night at this property. I ended up in a room with a view of the parking lot. For the money spent, I was beyond disappointed. The room itself is average, but the bathroom was tiny and dated.
The property has a sad bar and a dining room that feels like a cafeteria. It was also packed with Spring Breakers and families, so the environment felt relatively low rent.
The pool area is sterile and chuck full of screaming kids. The facilities ( e.g. bar, dining) at the pool are pathetic.
Overall, this property may have once been very nice, but it just feels sad and dated at this point.
Your money is better spent elsewhere.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Diddle01 Much more than expected!!
The resort was fantastic! Location: quiet and relaxing, but close to everything exciting. Room: The only thing better would be a second lounge chair, otherwise the room was great. It was clean as a whistle and roomy enough for 2 adults. Staff: I have never met a more friendly staff. Room service and housekeeping were super! We ordered a large pot of starbucks coffee every morning and it was a great price and quickly delivered! Restaurants: The resort had 4. Magnificent. Prices and types for all. There was a great bar at the pool and restaurant there too! Stuff to do: We were planning on paddle boarding and snorkeling, but the weather did not allow it. But it did allow a couple days of laying on our own cabana areas, cushioned chaise loungers by the ocean with a food and drink cart that came by frequently!
We give this resort a 2 thumbs up and would refer everyone to it! Great time and great people!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Maureen99 Relaxing stay
Thank you for a wonderful stay. Excellent check in with a woman with shoulder length blond hair and glasses. Our room had a view of the tennis court and ocean-very quiet :). The room was clean. The bathroom is similiar in size to a half bath- small, with a tub/shower and low toilet. I am an educated consumer, and overall this hotel was the best for the area. AMAZING fitness center!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by CanuckTraveler Does not disappoint
Been coming to the Sheraton Sand Key for 10 years now and each stay is always relaxing and comfortable. The beach is one of the best in the world and the club lounge has maintained its quality. Lots of free parking and the pool area is also great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by drcindyrx Best beach hotel!
Went here to relax and hang out on the beach. This hotel was great! We arrived at 8am and our room was ready and exactly what I had requested. When I checked out they even offered to hold our luggage and advised they could provide a place to change and shower if we wanted to spend the day at the beach ... how nice! PS - you have to rent a cabanna at the beach - it was great!

Rated 4 out of 5 by CanuckTraveler What a location!
Spend as much time as you can enjoying the beautiful beach and pool area here. The rooms are dated but the sunsets are stunning if you get the right room. The lounge was great and the staff was very friendly. Parking was an issue as they were having a conference when I was there but I was still able to get a spot. Some great restaurants are within walking distance as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DrShelbyK Never Wanted To Leave!!
Wow! We travelled (for the first time) to Clearwater after visiting Orlando. What a treat!!
We knew it would be crowded as it was Spring Break time but it never felt like that, We arrived early and asked about a different view for our room, if possible. We were offered a ground floor room that walked right out to pool area. Normally I would hesitate at ground floor but rep at front desk actually let us quickly look at the room as it was ready. We took the room as it was beautiful, clean and with a sliding glass door to the outside pool area.
Rusty's was great-food was excellent and attention to detail by staff was awesome-we had the same experience at Mainstays and Island Grille.
Outside area was exceptionally clean and hot tub was great.
Staff there was A-1 and they even have vey fairly priced chair entals down at the beach. Truly an exceptional and relaxing vacation. We will be back many times in the future!!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Laurablt This hotel was expensive and tired
We booked a club room and paid over 350 for each night.
The room was tired and no more than three star at best. Bathrooms very small and tubs old.
The club room was like a waiting room at an airport and not comfortable.
Food and staff very good...not their fault about the value for money.
Ocean view lovely but not worth the $

Rated 5 out of 5 by happyguest28 Perfect scale
I love this sweet hotel and have stayed her once a year for approximately 14 years. The scale is perfect - large enough to have the necessary amenities, but not so large as to feel lost in a huge resort.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Natalia07 Hospitality at it's best!
From Brandon at the front desk who was one of the most friendly and engaging front desk agents I've met , to the food, the quality of the room. It was a wonderful experience. You can see that Mr. Kimball is doing an excellent job in ensuring his staff loves the property and it shows in their daily interaction with the guests. Can't wait to come back!

I work for the Sheraton Syracuse Hotel and stayed here at the Sheraton Sand Key. I would like to compliment the whole staff that I encountered. Jane at the front desk, Joe at poolside, George the bartender were all awesome. We are going to make this an annual getaway every spring and stay here. Thank you for the best vacation I have had in a long time.

We had the Christmas Buffet at Rusty's Bistro. I have ate at plenty of gourmet buffets in my lifetime, however, this one was the best. The flavors in all of the main course dishes were delicious. The truffle mushroom soup was one of the best I've ever had. Complements to the Chef and his cooks and staff!!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anne88 Decent resort hotel
This hotel had an amazing location but the rooms and bathrooms were standard run of the mill Sheraton. I do not think it was a good value for the money. The staff at the pool and the pool bar seemed very surly and unwelcoming. For years I have stayed at Sheratons (more than 50 nights a year each year) and this was definitely not one of my favorites.

We had a great stay at the Sand Key Resort. Terrific hotel with a excellent staff and great amenities, including a very good restaurant. Special thanks to Jane at the front desk and to Walter our waiter for the Saturday seafood buffet. We will definitely recommend the Sand Key to friends and family and we're looking forward to our next visit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DG52 This hotel has a great location and beach
An outstanding beach and being located next to Sand Key Park made it somewhat private as well. The rooms were great, the exercise room on the 9th floor had an outstanding view of the intercoastal waterway.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Fsouena Great hospitality!!
The best 2 day getaway ever! Even had chocolate dipped strawberries waiting for us in the room to celebrate the surprising arrival of daddy! Lived the fact that we could still enjoy the pool all day, even after check out, and be able to take showers in the gym locker rooms after that! Thank you for letting us enjoy every single moment there!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mike1946 One of the best Sheraton's for a short vaction with wife
We spent two days/nights of just relaxing at this Sheration. The room and view were outstanding, the pool and beach were great, and the dining excellent.
I have stayed at many Sherations and other hotels worldwide, and this is one of the best.

We stay at the Sheraton Sand Key frequently and are never disappointed. The food is always fabulous - compliments to the F&B Director. Your associate "Dave" at the pool deck is the best - he is always so helpful and happy - we love it when he is there. Also, our server Ryan at Rusty's was great. Thank you for a great visit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by German53 The Best weekend stay ever !
This is the second time that stay at this wonderful resort, the hotel staff is great, very friendly and always aware of your immediate needs, from the moment that I arrived, to the check-out time. Due to some inconveniences that I experienced during my stay, the nice FD clerk gave us 2 Breakfast vouchers to make us forget them

Our stay was the best experience we have ever had at a hotel. The facility is great and the staff is wonderful. They are so accomodating and make you feel so welcome. The beach was quiet and serene and food was great in the hotel and at nearby restaurants. The view from our room was so beautiful. We will return.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gruppster Vacation stay Oct 15- 18th
First time in Clearwater- Definitely the place to stay- Great location for SPG owners using star points. Has large pool and own beach. I would highly recommend two restaurants the staff recommended. Just across the street and to the right of the Marriot. One is the Columbian, the other was Backwaters.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Stevie Very helpful staff and great service
The entire staff from front desk to housekeeping was exceptionally helpful throughout my stay. We had some issues that needed to be addressed around our room at check in and some minor housekeeping needs (not the hotel's problem) that were addressed very timely and with a minimum of disruption to our vacation.

Quite the place for either a fun or quiet relaxing Florida beach getaway or a meeting venue. You won't believe how large the beach area is. Rooms are beautiful, clean. Food is delicious and the staff ready to serve. I've stayed 4 times and plan to go again and again.
