We stayed at the Sara Sea Resort in the boutique room at the beginning of March.The room was very clean and perfect for 2 people for a 3-4 day stay. We liked having the kitchenette area because it gave us the opportunity to make breakfast and lunch in the room and not have to wander far from the beach.... which is about a 2 minute walk away. The resort has some smaller chairs/towels for check out but the nicer ones on the beach (2 - with an umbrella) you have to rent for 1/2 day or full day.
The location of the resort is farther away from the village so you would have to drive or take other transporation to get there, but there were a few shops, grocery and restaurants within walking distance.
I found the service at the resort to be spectacular. They accomdated a later check out for us, came w/in 10 minutes of our calling the front desk to show us how to use the DVD player in our room and housekeeping was friendly and flexible.
The resort has nicer ammenities. We used the common area grills and they were spotless, a big plus. There is a fish place across the street from the resort that sells great fresh seafood. They also have a lot of recently released dvd's to check out.
If we found ourselves back in the Sarasota area, we would stay here again.
