Great location, staff helpful & friendly, amenities like pool, shuffleboard, tennis courts well maintained. Laundry room convenient and liked it was open 24/7. Chaise lounges provided on beach were top quality and comfort, better than all other resorts we saw along the beach. Maintenance staff responded promptly to any concerns expressed.

Spent a week there with my teenage son and had a fabulous time. Longboat Key is quiet and relaxing during the off-season, but traffic is an issue during the peak months. Food and activities are available nearby. Our room was more like a two-bedroom apartment. Luxurious. Spacious. Immaculate. Will definitely return!

Nice place. Only no one warned us about Red Tide that had been at that beach for weeks. We would choke and cough within minutes after being outside. Could not sit on balcony or go to pool or even go to beach. We were there 6 days and it never let up. No response from mgt . Also, we had...

We are sorry you were unhappy with your stay at Sand Cay but appreciate the feedback. We try very hard to make every experience a great one. Unfortunately, Red Tide is a natural occurrence and there is no way to determine its presence in advance or how quickly it will dissipate. Tornadoes are an extremely rare phenomenon here. Because of...

We have stayed at this resort 3 times now (once in a "pool view", other a Partial Gulf View, and the last time in a "Gulf View). This is a little gem. Albeit, the decor is a little bit dated, the pool, head office, grounds are well maintained. It was very quiet, which was what we were looking for. The...

Longboat Key is a wonderful place to stay in Florida. Our family returns every year and our condo feel like home. Sand Cay Resort is a perfect place for your get away vacation, the beaches on the Gulf of Mexico are beautiful. We look forward to returning to Sand Cay Beach Resort for many years.

Construction was a nuisance as it was 50 yards from our condo #119. We were unable to sit outside. The people upstairs were very noisy. The condo was beautiful and very well appointed. Owners did a very nice job.

Your apartment #316 is a beautiful apartment. The living space was comfortable and we really enjoyed the balcony with the bar stools and table so we could see the ocean. However, the second bedroom was said to have a "Queen bed" but had a double. Also the bed was VERY uncomfortable since it felt like a hotdog bun!! When we...

“Like everywhere else, fold out couch/bed not very comfortable. Other than that furnishings and kitchen items well stocked and in good condition. View from room was not "full ocean view", cost was same for other resorts with FULL view.”

“We have stayed in various units....I found them all to be relatively the same...I wouldn't worry too much about it. Personally, I like to be on the top floor but that is just my preference, We didn't here any noise when staying on the lower floors.”
