Juliana knows what true service is. She made my husband and I feel so welcome as we traveled to the hotel to celebrate my birthday. Juliana sent an amenity and wine to our room along with other things at check in. She is the moment and she is a star. Her ability to provide outstanding service should not go unnoticed. Juliana is very passionate and she remains at the service of guests. You did your thing. Thank you, Juliana.

We love it here at Siesta Key Palms Resort! This is the best kept secret in Sarasota- Siesta Key area. Conveniently located, wonderful staff, beautiful setting. We were here in December, couldn’t wait to come back and can’t wait to go back again! They have everything you need in the villas. Love the water features, pools and the hammock right outside on our private patio. Such a quiet, relaxing place to stay!! Our new go to place!!

We had a wonderful time, there were 8 family members that made this a mini vacation. The kids loved the pool which was heated. This property is a very short walk from Siesta Key Beach. The rooms were very clean, the staff helpful and courteous. Loved the beach chairs they provided and the full kitchen with stove and fridge. We loved using the BBQ grill. And the pull out sofa was very comfortable. The kids and of course the adults can't wait to visit again.

This quaint hideaway is just what we needed. Can't say enough about this cute property. This is now my 2nd time here and I can say I will be back whenever I have the chance. They have a awesome firepit where you can sit and enjoy the beautiful evening. I love the entire property, it feels like you are tucked away on a private island, but you are only a mile from Siesta Key Beach. The rooms are beautifully decorated, with a refrigerator, stove and furnished kitchen. They have beach chairs and towels to use. The couch was vey comfortable to sleep on. The staff was extremely helpful. Can't wait to visit again, hopefully in January.

When we booked this the pictures made it look very beautiful and even the reviews were great. Big let down. First checking in the guy didn’t seem to know when the rooms would be ready and we were about 30 min earlier than 4pm because our flight landed early. However there was no way our room was cleaned right before we got here. The floor was filthy with sand and dirt, we had to sweep right away. Bugs and cobwebs everywhere. The blanket that was provided to us was nasty and had stains on it. The night stand in the bed room had blood on it. Yes it was blood we have pictures. Gross, not to mention in the bathroom the amount of mold and gunk in the corners and film on the floor was gross. Forget about hanging anything up to keep it off the ground because the hooks aren’t anchored in the wall you can tell where they have fallen out before and then they just shoved them into new holes. The pools were nice however dirty, one of the other hotel guests was actually cleaning the pool with the skimmer one afternoon. Don’t expect to relax or enjoy a book because they do their yard/lawn maintenance during the day around 12-3 this includes a loud leaf blower and rake. They come all around you to pick up leaves and blow them, this was very upsetting. Thought we were going to get some tranquility. I even asked the yard guy if he was almost done and told him it was loud but he didn’t speak any English. If you can’t fall asleep at the pools listening to the leaf blower then hope you don’t have a room by the highway. It is about 5 feet from the road and you can hear everything!!! All the cars, they have a nice fountain but they turn it off at night so it becomes really quiet and all you hear are the cars and road noise. You can hear your neighbors thru the wall and when you leave everyone knows because the doors have to be slammed shut so that they close. If this is what you want in a vacation then book it now you can’t get this anywhere else. However if you would like tranquillity, cleanliness, relaxing fun atmosphere I suggest you look somewhere else because this isn’t worth the cost. Just being honest.

The staff was so helpful and kind to us! It was our first visit and we had such a great experience! Our room was spacious and very clean! The grounds are so tropical and there is such a relaxing vibe. We were in town for my dad’s funeral, a very sad time but staying at the hotel was fun and relaxing! We will definitely will come back and stay! Thank you so much! 🐠☀️🌺🧜‍♀️💦

Well what can we say, we are currently at the accommodation and wanted to share what an amazing find this place is. After a week in Orlando discovering the park and then St. Petes this was an amazing gem - our favourite place to stay. The hotel is clean, tidy with all your needs catered for, the staff are attentive )we had one query at check in which was resolved immediately, very quickly and helpfully). The property itself is an oasis with the rooms having all the amenities you need. Location was ideal for us, a 7 minute walk to the beach (also where you can catch the free trolley to take you up and down siesta key) in one direction and a 5 min walk to the retail park etc. All the guests we encountered were friendly and respectful - highly recommend. To be honest unsure what people have to complain about here.

Very clean rooms with a tropical feel. Very close to Siesta key and beaches. The rooms were very private with each room having their own outdoor sitting area. Would definitely stay again. Highly recommend.

Brought my family here for vacation We all loved it. Relaxing tropical theme music played in all areas of the resort. The garden and rooms were in excellent condition. The staff was welcoming making you feel at home. They pick up your towels and bring you a fresh set and extra essentials needed upon request, they do not leave you waiting. Plenty of things to do at the resort from family activities to adult relaxation areas. Our stay literally felt like paradise. Definitely bringing my family here for vacation again.

This is our 3rd visit and it keeps getting better. The friendly staff. Clean rooms. We love staying here because it is close to beach and restaurants but once inside you feel like you are far away on a deserted island. We will be back
