This was our second stay at the Sunset Vistas which was even better than the first. The condo-type units are comfortable, spacious and come fully equipped. Located nicely on the beach and close to John Pass where the shops, restaurants and action are located. The on-site cafe is nice and convenient.

We appreciate the nice comments and hope to see you back again very soon!
The cafe and beach bar are wonderful amenities to have and are designed to meet our guests needs, even though each suite has a full kitchen!

Rooms are pretty good, although not the most space, was a little cramped with 2 families. But we managed. Pretty nicely furnished. Each unit is individually owned so are furnished differently, we stayed in 2 and both were nice although the 2nd was lacking in some utilities. Great location on beach, right out of the resorts front steps, beautiful beach. 2 pools are nice, kids pool is a great asset, not very deep and as a parent could relax a but more and let 2.5 and 4 year old be on their own a bit more. Cafe on 2nd floor is good, good snacks small meals for decent prices. Beach bar was a bit pricey for 'blender drinks' with alcohol. Resort was very young/spring breakish...lots of high schoolers with their families so it was a bit loud, especially at night. Overall it was a nice place, not 5 star but not an old outdated place like some of the other places on treasure is. We would go back.

We appreciate the feedback and are happy this family enjoyed their visit. Our suites are 860 sq feet and much larger than most alternative properties in the area. Spring is especially busy with families of all ages, but security is on duty in the evenings to maintain peace and quiet. All of the suites booked directly with Sunset Vistas Beachfront Suites are furnished and appointed the same. The children's pool, with it's fountains and sprays, is really a highlight for small children.

We stayed in a 2 bedroom room during the busy Spring Break season and found our second floor room to be reasonably quiet and comfortable. We were somewhat close to the pool but it was not a problem with noise. There was a visible presence by on-site security and assigned parking eliminated the trouble of trying to find a spot. All rooms seem to have at least a partial view of the gulf. The location is great with beautiful wide and clean beaches. There are not traffic problems here that you can encounter in the clearwater beach area. A paved walking path over a mile long begins two properties to the south. Our room was clean and in generally good condition. Our kitchen had the essentials but not an over abundance of dishes – basically just enough for a four place setting and a few pots and pans. A few additional plates and cups would have been nice. The scheduled every other day resupply of towels and other essentials was not consistent but were able to get more towels and other items when we requested. Wireless internet is complimentary and was reasonably fast. This is a good choice for families or couples. Note: the sofa sleeper in the living area is not comfortable for sleeping according to my college student son.

Checked in Saturday March 3rd, 2012 at 11 PM. Someone had parked in our place so we parked out front, no problem. (Only night this happened) Room was clean and very nice. Stayed for 7 nights. Plenty of room to share with another couple or kids.
Front desk personnel were very helpful with any questions or concerns we had, great job!
Property was nice and quiet, great and easy access to the very clean beach. Amazing views of the gulf!! Kitchen is adequately stocked with pots, pans, cups, plates and utensils.
Convenient store directly across the street. Grocery store down the street. Wal-mart in St. Pete is about 15 minutes away. Walgreen's is a 5 minute drive . St. Pete airport is within 30 minutes.
Plenty of restaurants, with Johns Pass a fun place about a 15 minute walk. Watch for dolphins playing in the water, really cool.
If management could 'tweak' something, we struggled to get WIFI consistently. And the drinks at the bar are a little steep, albeit a 'double'. ($20 for 2 with a modest tip).
Pool and hot tub were cleaned professionally every morning. Rooms were freshened up every couple of days.
We are happy we chose Sunset Vistas, and would definitely return. Our 7 days cost about $1650, but worth it for a good trip.
There are a lot of similar properties along the Gulf, this is one of the good ones.

Great insight in this review for future visitors, we appreciate the nice comments and welcome the suggestions! Certain streaming is restricted on our complimentary WiFi and it is very rare that we hear it has problems with signal. We really patrol the reserved parking and appreciate the patience demonstrated by this party. Come back again soon!

We came down from the northern states to spend our vacation here at Sunset Vistas. Our room was not ready as we arrived very early. The ladies Brianna & Liz made us feel welcomed as soon as we waked through the doors. We were able to use the pool and beach until our room was ready. Not a hour had gone by and they called to tell us our room was ready. We got checked in and when we went to our room it was just BEAUTIFUL. We stayed out on our patio (as the weather was so beautiful) and just watched the beautiful beach and skies right out of our own room. EVERYONE was so helpful. Not sure if the others commenting were unhappy people, but all I can say is we will return. The went above and beyond the call of duty while we were here.

We took a 2 night break from our timeshare in Orlando and stayed at Sunset Vistas. We stayed there during Spring Break so the rooms were high priced, but very nice. We stayed in a 2 bedroom Gulf View unit. The 2 bedrooms were small, but nice. The Kitchen was very large as was the Dining area. Living room was small. Both bathrooms were OK sized. When we arrived our room was not ready, but they said they would call me when it was ready. I got a call very soon afterward. When we returned to check in I found out that I had left my credit card at Planet Hollywood in Orlando the night before. The girls at the front desk called Planet Hollywood for me and got me connected with the credit card company to cancel my account. They also said that I could have a new card shipped to the resort front desk and they would call me when it got there. It arrived the next day and they left a message on my cell phone and the room phone to let me know that the card had arrived. I did not expect that kind of help so I was very surprised and happy. The beach was great. Cabanas and other items are available to rent on the beach. Not to far of a walk from the property to the water. I will stay here again if I get the chance.

Room Tip: I would not pay the higher price for a Beach Front unit

Wow, we really love to hear when our employees go above and beyond, thanks for the nice comments. We are delighted that these visitors had a wonderful vacation. We do feel one of our advantages is the distance to the water, not a mile hike like some properties in the area.

We stayed at Sunset Vistas from March 17-24. It was an excellent experience. This is our 4th trip to Sunset Vistas and we will for sure come back again to enjoy all that Treasure Island has to offer. Very close walk to John's Pass. Lots of shopping and places to eat. The Middle Grounds Grill is fantastic. The rooms at Sunset Vistas are very spacious. I like that there is a separate patio door entrance from the master bedroom to the balcony. The sunsets are fantastic and can be viewed right from your balcony. Kitchen is very large and equipped with everything you will need. I noticed an earlier comment regarding the fire drill testing that took place. We were there during that time and certainly had proper notice that the testing would be taking place. I felt that notices were posted well in advance. Well worth the two minutes of alarm ringing to know that they are functioning properly - thank you!! The beach is absolutely amazing! Beautiful, powder white sand moments from your room. Plenty of chairs and cabanas available for rent on the beach by the local Taylor Beach Service. Overall great experience. This is an excellent place to vacation with your family. Will be returning as soon as we can!!

Room Tip: I would recommend rooms on the North side. Views of sunset and overlooking the pool.
