Sheraton Sand Key Resort

Clearwater, Clearwater and St Pete

The hotel

Sand Key has been voted in the top 10 US beaches and with California, Hawaii and the rest of Florida in competition, that's no small boast. The hotel is right on that glorious white sand. It is an attractive, well-run and well-equipped resort, with a selection of eateries. Rusty's provides wonderful breakfasts and gourmet dinners. There's plenty of daily specials and tasty treats including a fresh soup and salad bar in the Island Grill, and you'll always find a good atmosphere and drinks specials in the Mainstay Tavern. Just across the road are the Shoppes of Sand Key, an area that includes more great restaurants to try.

My wife and I have stayed at Sand Key Resort three times. Each time our stay was wonderful. The people working in the hotel are kind and helpful. The General Manager, Dominic, went above and beyond to make our stay memorable. Brian & Lisa

Stayed at this hotel over 20 times, and the minute we set foot in the door our holiday starts. The Staff are so so helpful throughout the hotel Janet on the desk is so so helpful. It is so relaxing a beautiful private beach a casual beach resort. I have read a lot of reviews people not happy with there rooms small bathroom thin walls. We have not had any problems at all and we have stayed 5 weeks this year. I am pleased that we have free parking and no resort fees added to the end bill at the end of our stay. Stayed 2 weeks in the spring Clearwater packed. Sand key did not have crowds plenty of room on the beach etc. This is the perfect hotel if you want a relaxed chilled holiday on the beach good restaurants in the hotel and a short walk to a strip of nice shops and restaurants on Sand Key.

We stayed at Sheraton Sand Key for one night as a stop over after going to Bush Gardens. Room was great for family of 4 (2 adult children) We ate dinner & breakfast in the hotel restaurant that was very nice, maybe a little on expensive side. Spent the following day on the beach & around the pool. Would go back again.

My family evacuated from northeast Florida to Clearwater Beach to avoid the hurricane this week. When we received the all clear that we could return home, the manager allowed us to cancel our room that night without incurring a charge. We appreciate the courtesy and the hotel welcoming us.

After a long flight, It was nice to walk into the Sheraton, we immediately got a warm greeting from the mos walking across the foyer, that warm happy atmosphere continued from all the staff for the 2 nights we stayed. Sandy shelly beach, we lazily got picked up and dropped off at sea front from golf buggy giving regular lifts. Tried the restaurant buffet breakfast definitely worth the cost and was very varied, free parking with hotel. Room was usual hotel room with 2 double beds and nice view of pool, bathroom is very small.Things to improve, the pool is a bit small for size of hotel and the air conditioning was very very noisy which is the main reason I can't give this hotel 5 stars. I trolley runs directly from outside the hotel very easy and quick to use to pier and is free is you show your room card. Concierge helpful sorting Clearwater aquarium tickets and giving advice on where to park. Read less
