Sheraton Sand Key Resort

Clearwater, Clearwater & 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.

A lovely hotel on the beach front at the Gulf of Mexico. The property was beautifully maintained and the rooms were well appointed. There are lots of activities available from the pool to volleyball to tennis. The beachfront is a bit of a walk, but staff offer rides in a golf cart both to and from. A third party vendor offers chair and umbrella rentals at the beach. We watched the sunset from our fifth floor balcony. All the staff we encountered were pleasant and helpful--really some of the best service I've experienced. I would give a five-star rating except for the lack of free wifi. Even the library has free wifi! Otherwise, highly recommended for a quiet family getaway. Read less

Mini family vacation here - very pleasant staff at front desk and concierge- room was good size with view of ocean - housekeeping was very accommodating with extra towels and amenities we needed - pool was crowded and look smaller than the website photo. My only complaint is the long walk to the ocean from the hotel. The beach is huge in this section where this hotel is located. The tennis court were very well maintained and never crowded. Also the parking was as issue. The lot is free but ultra crowded. Read less

I love this property for the awesome staff, great location and close to many things to do. I take groups to hotels and resorts around the US and Canada and I am confident my clients will enjoy their stay here. I am not a beach person and there is plenty for me to do too. Great restaurants within walking distances.

My GO TO for all date weekends, Gals Weekends and personal ME TIME getaways! We were four friends onsite for a party weekend with the girls. The cocktails were boozie and fun! The beach is a paradise without all the crazy of Clearwater beach down the road. Parking FREE! Pool! Delightful!

My husband and I enjoyed our stay very much. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. The room was a bit outdated, but comfortable and clean. My biggest complaint was that no lounge chairs were provided at the beach, they had to be rented. I found that to be aggravating at a beach front resort. My other complaint was that the room didn’t get made up until 3:00 and 4:00. I did complain about that, and was given a credit for a complimentary drink, which I appreciated. We enjoyed dinner at Rusty’s Bistro, and breakfast there too. We would definitely return to the Sheraton at Clearwater. Read less
