Rated 5 out of 5 by Melissa65 Perfect Location, Great Hotel
We went to Florida for a quick getaway during February school vacation - to escape the constant snow! The Sheraton Sand Key was a great hotel in the perfect location on the Florida Gulf Coast. It's located right on the beach, but isn't crowded with tons of people who tend to be located just slightly to the north in the main area of Clearwater Beach. The beach, pool area, and adjacent park area are clean and well maintained. The hotel is located over a bridge from the main part of Clearwater Beach, which is great for our family. You are close enough to the main "action" of CB so you can go to any and all of the attractions, restaurants, and activities.....yet you are just enough away from the hub bub that you get a sense of quiet and relaxation! The hotel is moderately sized, which means you aren't fighting for a pool chair or beach space. The rooms are very clean and the beds are the most comfortable I've ever slept on - even better than home! The staff was really helpful, providing us with a late checkout on request and lounge facilities for changing when we arrived early before our room was ready. This is our 2nd visit to this hotel and we will definitely return again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sharon79 Marvelous R & R
We could not have stayed at a better place - the staff is outstanding!! They ALL seem to enjoy their jobs and go the extra mile for their guests. From the front desk staff, to the door man that assisted us to our room, The gift shop ladies, the servers at your fabulous morning breakfast buffet, the staff that cleaned our room. and the "pool guy" who made us smile even more and went beyond just giving us our towels, and the many other staff that just passed us in the hallway saying hello and asking if we needed anything........all were great!! We hated to leave but we will be back!!

Stayed at this hotel for the fifth time. The hotel is conviently located, a short distance from the busy beachfront stores and bars, but close enough to get there in just minutes. The hotel has a large private beach that is second to none, plus a large, Y shaped pool, kiddie pool and hot tub. There is a poolside bar and a cafe. The hotel also has four tennis courts and provides rackets and balls for guest use. A great location for business conferences with several meeting rooms. For food, there is Rusty's, the main upscale restaurant, the Island Grill which is great for breakfast or lunch, and the Mainstay Tavern, a pub like atmosphere open late into the night. There are also many great restaurants close by. Rooms are clean and well maintained and present a great view of the Gulf, epecially the beautiful sunsets. Many rooms are undergoing renovations with in room refrigerator becomming standard. We will return there again.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Traveler20121110 Not an SPG Experience
I realize I am not the highest level of SPG, but I do make an effort to stay at SPG Properties when possible. This time, the only one who really seemed glad to see us was the guy who greeted us at the door before we went inside the hotel. He was a joy. The rest, seemed to just wish we had come another time. I think I will look for another Clearwater Beach location next time. I noticed there were a few other properties there. I do not recommend this location.

The staff at all levels from doormen to checkin to concierge to service in the dining room were exceptional. Friendly and helpful well above the norm. The room was great. We'll be back soon.

We appreciated the sand toys and pool toys that were available for the kids. We enjoyed the soccer and bean bag activities on the beach.
The concierge staff was excellent. We had never been to the area and they were patient and helpful with all of our questions.
Thanks for a great vacation.....we will be back!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rtst Everything we expected
This resort met and exceeded our expectations. The staff is available to meet your every need, yet transparent so your stay is enjoyable and comfortable. Two of our favorites: David - who is busiest around the pool keeping things tidy and safe, and Nate - who is personable and efficient and keeps everyone satisfied at the bar.
We had a delightful week. The facilities are well maintained, the pool and beach beautiful, the staff appear to take pride in their work. We would love to plan a return trip to Sheraton Sand Key Resort.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Becpsu Good place for the family
I was impressed with how family-friendly the resort was. There were pool toys and beach toys, and the cleaning staff even rescheduled for an early cleaning as not to wake us during nap time. The rooms are small, I would upgrade if possible, also ask for a refrigerator.
