Coquina on the beach is our home in Sarasota since the mid 90's. It is the perfect place for the 3 weeks annual vacations for me and all the family. Some guests frequently are talking about old way, dated forniture and so one. Forget it and have fun! Depending on the category of room you pick, leaving the rum and...

This resort is directly on the beach--we stayed in an upgraded pool view room on the second level which had a side view of the beach from the deck--the sunsets over the beach are spectacular. The room was large with two queen beds and a large glass patio door leading to the deck.. Along one wall was an open kitchen...

If you own a nice new vehicle or a large vehicle you do not want to stay here..I woke up every morning wondering if someone had put a ding in the door of my new car because they have parking spaces so narrow you can barely open your door to get out of your car..also there is only one lane...

If you had let us know about your fancy new car, we would have made arrangements for a "special" parking space just for you. It's a shame you didn't, you just sat and worried about your car the whole time. I hope you at least enjoyed the beautiful beach:)

Functional, but desperately needs updating. It would be a great place for a family to stay because it has a kitchen to cook. A little to far from St. Armand Circle restaurants and shops to walk. Right on the beach. Too bad, it didn't have a beach bar although there are some in the area.

Reserved online for the close location to a seminar being held. Looked okay but you know online versus in person can be so different. Got to our room and the a/c was not working. Staff got it working for a minute but quickly shut down again. No problem, got moved to a different room. The rooms are very spacious and...

Our family had a wonderful time in this older but very nice resort. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The room was perfect with a very nice kitchen for easy meal preparation. The beds were comfy and furniture was perfect. Literally steps from the waters edge. Cabana on the beach for shade and loungers are supplied for ease. Pool...

We had a great room with full kitchen. Wonderful BEACH and beach access. Very laid back. The only thing I would want more is paddleboard or something for an ocean activity at the hotel. The next door hotel had them.

We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay at our "laid back" old Florida slice of paradise! The gentleman next door rents those paddleboards out to anyone who would like to rent one. There are also options for rentals that are delivered to your door (or patio). We look forward to having you back again soon.

Beachfront hotel which I like very much. It is close to St. Armand's Circle which I like and is a popular spot with many restaurants.The closest grocery store is in Longboat Key but it isn't that far.

The photos are not current. Visible rust on rails, cracks in ceiling. Poorly attached carpets in balcony, very tight parking spaces. Right on the beach, a short walk beautiful sunsets, calm water, noisy guest past midnight. Older hotel, some renovations but good central air, semi hard bed, medium refrigerator, microwave, no hair dryer. Good TV. Quite expensive for value you...
