Departure Day

... fast for the slithery guy. By now he had probably already made his way back outside or into one of our suitcases. Last night the lizard had us questioning whether we should leave early but the storm appeared dangerous. Not only that but I had clothes in the dryer and didn’t want to pass the kitchen to retrieve them. I woke Jessica around 6:00 because I knew she was prepared enough to only have to wake up and walk to the car. Since I ...

... restaurant and charter boat tours. Dressed in white shirts, pants, and stained aprons, two workers haphazardly rushed in and out of the personnel doors. The restaurant lies adjacent to the A.P. Bell Fish Company where most of the fish from the Gulf of Mexico is harvested and sent to restaurants and markets. Old fishing boats align the broken wooden docks and the aroma is that of rotting fish carcass. I’m not sure if it is because it is Sunday or ...

... the beach. We arrived just in time to spot the sun sink below the horizon. In less than ten seconds the sun can be widely visible from the sky and beautifully disappear in the edge of the water. A few families were still playing in the water and a guy was fishing not far from them, each one stopped for the breathtaking view. I sat down in the sand not far from a guy I hoped was sleeping. I would have liked to be a good citizen and made sure he ...

It looked like a fun ritual and definitely drew some eccentric people to be sure.. Seemed a little "new age" to us but maybe the rhythm of the circle does run deeper than the beat of the drums.

Everyone was smiling to be sure...the spirit of peace and happiness lives on here as if it is still

    Historical Traveler Reviews Tropical Shores Beach Resort Siesta Key

    Home away from home

    from

    I have been here twice with my wife and totally enjoyed each stay. The grounds are very appealing, as are the buildings and upkeep. Everything is so clean and tidy(inside and out). The people that work at the desk, Dawn, Betsy, Kim and one I forgot, make you feel so at home. They bend over to accomodate your needs and requests. They give good advice for places to eat as well as things to see and do. I travelled for a living for 31 years, and these ladies were the best I ever saw. It is about a 3 minuite walk to the best location on the beach. They have everything you need to have a good time at the beach. The property is located about the middle of the Key, so it is easy to go up or down. The rooms are immaculate, cheerful, and have all the necessary amenities. We found it very quiet and relaxing. We checked out seveal places in Sara Sea Circle, as well as other locations and found none that we would switch to. They are more than competitive in price.

    Loved the Tropical Shores

    from

    My family and I loved the Tropical Shores! The room was great and exceptionally clean. I have a 3 year old son and the fact that the beach was just within a short walking distance made it very convenient. We really enjoyed the beautiful beach and even found time to relax by the pool. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. I have recommended Tropical Shores to my family friends and my family and I will definitely be back!

    Dawn was a delight

    from

    Bill Gamble is a real hotelier. He runs a marvelous operation - little does he know that Dawn is the reason for his success! We had a delightful time at Tropical Shores and will be back shortly. Thanks for a wonderful weekend.

    Couldn't have been any nicer!

    from

    My mother and I stayed at Tropical Shores over Christmas holiday. We could not believe our luck of finding this gem of a place. We just had no idea how nice the beach and area was. We are use to staying on the other side of Florida (never again)! The hotel was beautiful. My mom and I felt very safe. The grounds were so pretty. Very clean. The people were most friendly at the hotel and everywhere. We were really impressed and would go back.

    OK but let down slightly by the location

    from

    We stayed here for 2 nights in November 2004. We did not pre-book and walked in on the off-chance and managed to get the one remaining efficiency which was on a block opposite the main road. The room was a reasonable size. It had a kitchenette with large fridge, a dining table & chairs, a small sofa and a TV. However, the bathroom was very small. There are no food outlets in Sara Sea Circle, I'm not sure if any of the other hotels on this complex had in-house restaurants but if they did they weren't open to non-residents and we were advised at reception to go into the vilage. There are, however, a couple of restaurant across the road; French, Italian and one other which I can't remember and there is a 7-11 within walking distance which is good for coffee and Danish in the morning. The beach was a two minute stroll down a private brick path and was pretty good, although not a patch on the famous Siesta Key beach a few miles up the road. We found ourselves driving to the Siesta key beach in the day and driving a few miles again in the evening to get into to the village for dinner. To summarise, this was a pretty resort within very nice grounds, although the location and lack of on-site amenities let it down slightly and given the choice I would opt to stay nearer Siesta Key beach and the village in future.

    Wow, what a place

    from

    My husband and I just got back from Siesta Key and coudn't have had a more pleasent experience. Our room at Tropical Shores was very clean. The beach was a powdery white. The people that work there are also very helpful and friendly.

    Tropical Shores OK for budget travelrs

    from

    Tropical Shores is located in Sara Sea Cirle about a 5 minute walk from the beach. Why travel here and not be on the beach? Also this stretch of Crecent Beach is rocky unlike the rest of it. Anyone who has stayed at nice properties in the past will be dissapointed. Small, dark ,old rooms! Dinky little pool accross the road. The only reason this place does any business is that it is cheap and one of the few places on Siesta Key that rents by the night. Look elsewhere, believe me.

    Good place to stay -- Not so good Beach

    from

    The hotel was nice and clean. The staff was SUPER nice. They are very accomodating. Crescent beach isn't the nicest beach on the island. Siesta beach is only 3-4 miles up the road and this is the best beach. Crescent beach is full of nice shells, but the sand isn't as nice and it is pretty dirty with trash. Siesta beach is very pretty. It is crowded, but there is room for everyone. You may want to consider a place closer to Siesta Beach if you don't want to drive a few miles.

    Tropical Shores is perfect

    from

    The rooms are clean and well-stocked. The resort provides complimentary beach chairs and towels. The pool is immaculate and very warm. The grounds are impeccably maintained with tiki style barbecue grills, lawn chairs and vibrant shrubs. There's a private park to the side of the resort with palm trees, flowering shrubs, shuffleboard courts, park benches and gazebo.The office provides free coffee and cookies. There are laundry facilities. A grocery store and drugstore are less than a one minute drive. Finally, the beach is amazing with clear bluish-green water and cool, powdery sand. The beach is a short, fun stroll down a private walkway. This place is a true paradise and we will return as often as is possible.

    Perfect accommodation, perfect location

    from

    The Tropical Shores resort was everything it promised, the extremely helpful and friendly staff are there if you need them, but if you want peace and quiet, that is what you will get. The accommodation is exceptionally clean and practical. Tropical shores is only minutes from a lovely private beach. Surprisingly there are no outlets for food or drinks on the beach itself, although. The beach is very clean and child friendly as the water is shallow. The area is abundant with good restaurants only minutes from Tropical Shores. Dont miss the sunset, it is spectacular. We will certainly be returning.
