Sheraton Sand Key Resort

Clearwater, Clearwater and St Pete

Virgin rating

The hotel

Ready to feel sand between your toes and sea salt in your hair? The Sheraton Sand Key puts you right on the shores of one of America’s best beaches, so you can be in those free-flowing waves in seconds. Take a dip in the pool overlooking the beach, and bubble away in the whirlpool. It's a great family friendly option, as kids will love having their own pool, and you can even grab some on-the-go grub, perfect for chilled-out family days. Complimentary transportation on the Jolly Trolley means you can connect to all that Clearwater Beach has to offer - water sports, playgrounds, shops and restaurants, but if you want to venture further afield it's just a short drive to Tampa, and the hotel offers free parking!

Hotel was built in the 1970s and looks dated and uninviting. Smallest hotel bathroom I've ever seen. No robes and no makeup mirror in room. We are platinum guests and were given a room without an ocean view.

Hotel was built in the 1970s and looks dated and uninviting. Smallest hotel bathroom I've ever seen. No robes and no makeup mirror in room. We are platinum guests and were given a room without an ocean view. We faced the intracoastal in the distance but looked out at an ugly rooftop over the convention space and the systems on the roof were extremely noisy. Pool wasn't very nice and had not nearly enough pool chairs. Hotel abuts the beach but is set very far back and hotel does not provide beach chairs or amenities. Our included breakfast (Platinum amenity) was awful with no healthy options. In retrospect we should have stayed at the Marriott across the street or at one of the Marriott managed properties on the other side of the bridge, closer to the marina and stores and restaurants. Very disappointing! This hotel should be replaced with a new high end property given it's location. Read less

Last minute reservation turned into the wrong room but Front Office Manager Marta saved the day for our mother daughter Nurses Week Celebration. As you can imagine as covid nurses this short stay was much needed to reset. Our room location was perfect along with super comfy sheets/pillows. The entire grounds are well maintained and all personnel super friendly and helpful. We especially liked Randy at the bar. Very friendly and hard worker. The only thing that could have made this super perfect is live poolside music. I'm looking forward to returning with my husband. Thank you to Marta and the nice young checkin girl.. outstanding!

Overall the hotel is decent, but Amanda by the pool made this trip amazing. Probably the best Marriott customer service I have ever experienced. Thank you so much! We will be coming back as long as Amanda is here!

My visit to the Sheraton Sand Key Resort could not have been better. All the staff and employees were amazing. Danielle at the front desk was patient, listened and assisted with our every need then went above and beyond. What a wonderful week.
