Enjoyed a delicious, dinner prepared by great chefs. The pictures may not do it justice. There were many there celebrating a new scholarship available to High School students in our county. These may be given for Hospitality, Savory or Bakery. A delightful evening and a beautiful sunset, always. The hallmark of Sand Key Beach!

It’s 10:35, and people are out by the pool screaming and yelling. Front desk won’t do anything. I’m paying $275 a night for this. Horrible. Don’t stay here if you like to go to sleep before 11 pm. Seriously.

Team did a very good job handling our conference of 150. Rooms were nice, but nothing amazing. Front desk was great about making some last minute changes and accepting packages for our group. Most meals were excellent except for breakfast which was slightly better than average. Wi-Fi was UNSECURED. These days that is simply unacceptable.

Stayed at the Sheraton Sand Key for a long weekend. We were going to be traveling to the area and since we have stayed at this resort a few times many years ago and being a Marriott Rewards Member, we figured it would be a good choice. The hotel has not changed too much and we did enjoy our stay. The only negative comment is the bathrooms are so small! We had a small issue upon check in where we had booked a King Bed room but it was not going to be available until 4:00 p.m. when we had originally requested early check in. We settled for a two Queen bed room. It was ok but did not offer much room considering the two beds but we made it work. The grounds were very well kept and the staff was inviting and welcoming. One of the nice perks was the Trolley to Clearwater. It stops directly at the hotel and took us downtown. Very convenient Read less

This is the second time that we stayed here. We love the quiet aspect of the Sand Key as compared to busy Clearwater.

This hotel has everything that we want, nice pool area, beachfront, right next to nature park, good restaurants in hotel and across the street. The rooms are very clean and comfortable, and the staff is very nice. Clearwater beach is a trolley ride or a short walk away. I would recommend for business, and couples, or families. Read less
