Was there this past weekend for a family reunion. The quality of units varied, as we occupied several units in the complex. Some units were very nice; ours was average. Our unit, D203, was clean, however the bed was so uncomfortable I could not sleep. I retreated to the couch every night to try to sleep, but there was no...

On the recommendation of a close friend, we stayed at the Sarasota Surf and Racquet Club during Spring Break 2017. We stayed in unit 1206, which was updated and absolutely gorgeous! My husband and I have 4 children, ages 17, 15, and 12 year old twins. It was wonderful to have a condo with plenty of space for all 6...

Mother Nature did not fail to disappoint our family at our third annual family reunion at Sarasota Surf and Racquet Club. Air and Gulf temps were the warmest since we started our family reunions. We lounged on the beach with an attendant bringing us chairs, walked at the shore's edge, barbequed at the grill some nights, and thoroughly enjoyed the...

This review is long overdue. We lived in Sarasota for several years and stayed at Sarasota Surf and Racquet the first week of this past November.

We rented Y106 which is a terrific beachfront unit with amazing views. It is quite large. I wish it had two king beds instead of a king in one room and a double and single in the other to make it more appealing to share with another couple. The complex is very well managed. They do a lot of maintenance...
