... but Eva showed no such conservatism or inhibition. She dived into the 50 metre wide circle and began twirling, waving her arms and stomping her feet. Completely out of rythnn of course but people applauded her carefree attitude. We were of course then forced to dance with her (sober) which was liberating of sorts. Anyhow it was a top night, we went to bed far too late and our feet ached from dancing on sand but what a way to say goodbye to the states.
Sunday we all attended mass at St Joseph's Catholic Church in Bradenton. That afternoon we took in more islands and beaches. I am starting to feel like an Islander. We have seen so many islands on this trip. It's getting hard to remember them all. Driving over the drawbridge on Manatee Ave. we went to Anna Marie Island and had lunch at Old Salty Dog, drove through Holmes Beach and Bradenton Beach, Then we went ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Siesta Beach Resort & Suites Siesta Key
My friends and I reserved a room for two nights last weekend (4th of July). Though this a great location if you want to walk to the restaurants, bars & shops of Siesta key Village, this property has some issues they need to work out. The hotel property itself is not well maintained. When we checked in, we noticed trash and cigarette butts everywhere, empty beer bottles strewn about and left that way for the entire time we were there.
We stayed for one night in June. Sietsa Key has a great beach. But this hotel in not on the beach, you can't even see the water from the hotel.
Dislike this place
Hotel says beach resort.. You must drive to the beach. It is not on the beach. a/c loud, decor needs updating.. More for younger adults. Not for familys. I only recommend this hotel if you are desperate in need of a place to stay. paid $125. a nite.
STOP BEFORE YOU BOOK!!!!
We checked in on a Sat.. We had reservation for a week but checked out Monday morning. There were ants in the bathroom,the room was very loud all night, and limited hot water. We brought this to the attention when we check out they could have cared less.Save your money, not worth $200.00 a night.
What an awful room! We had a standard room across the road from the office....dark, small, NO ventilation, black mold in the caulking in the bathroom, black mold seeping down the wall from a vent in the bathroom, the front window lock was broken, peeling paint at the bottom of the walls. This place is very old....and should be torn down and rebuilt....don't know what the other rooms were like but ours was terrible....beds were old. We cut our stay short and got out of there.
The front office people were nice....we didn't say anything but should have.....you would think housekeeping would tell the owners about the condition of the rooms...if they didn't already know. No way we will ever come back!:(
I love the ambience of Siesta Key Village
I had reserved the cheapest room they had but since I'm a Gold Crown member it was upgraded to a suite. I loved the area. It is quiet but offers enough so that it is not dull. On my recommendation, my daughter went later in the month with a friend. They felt the same and, outside of the beach, never strayed more than six blocks for four days.
We stayed in the Siesta Beach for 1 night on 9th October. We decided to check out the jacuzzi suite and were not disappointed. Although the outside of the "bungalow" is not fantastic and offers no views, the inside more than makes up for this. The whole suite was very clean and the hotel is situated in an excellent position 2 minutes from Siesta Key Beach which is lovely. There are a few bars and restaurants in the area, but these do not detract from the peaceful setting.
I visited the city of Sarasota in June,2001 for a wedding for a family friend. I was referred to an accomodation on Siesta Key, which was the Best Western on Ocean Boulevard. The service and staff was great and the beach was a short walk across the street. The beach was absolutely beautiful and the water was clear and it was shallow a good 100 feet out. Area had some lively bars and a nice breakfast at a restaurant on Ocean Boulevard near the hotel. I couldn't believe how beautiful the area was. You could spend the day at the beach or get a nice massage at the nearby Siesta Key Therapeutic Massage Center to relax. People in the area are great and it is the closest I've been to paradise here in our great country. You will enjoy the Siesta Key/Sarasota area. It's a can't miss!
A friend and I stayed at the Best Western on Siesta Key in July of 2002. The room we were in was located in the main building where the front desk is housed. The room was dingy, dark & the bathroom moldy. The topper came as I was taking a shower and had a giant palmetto bug keep me company - not the last I was to see in the room. The rec area is bland & the pool very small. The rooms around the pool did look nicer though. The only thing that saves this hotel is location. You're directly across the street from Siesta Beach - one of the best in the world.
Loved siesta beach!
Siesta beach was lovely. Very clean and a brilliant atmosphere! We had great weather which topped it off, but definatley one of the best beaches we have been too! The whole family had many great days out their during our holiday to Sarasota! Helen AND Hayley
