A great stay, and only twenty seconds to the top beach in the US

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for four days and five nights in early June. The room was clean and was just as described. Yes, it is about the size of a hotel room, but the sleeping area/living area has what I guess to be ten-foot ceilings which help the whole room the feel bigger. The room comes with full cable TV and free wi-fi, along with all the utensils, dinnerware, and cookware one needs for a meal. The bed was softer than I was used to, but comfortable, and bed-bug free! The shower had great water pressure. We were only a 20-second walk from the beach, which my daughter loved. If we forgot something while on the beach, it was a fast trip back in and out. Location was great; close to the Siesta Key shops and eateries to the north and south. The beach is simply outstanding; you won't find better anywhere.

The only suggestions I would have for improvement are 1) applying touch-up paint on the trim and bathroom pocket door, and 2) investing in a bar-height table and two bar-height chairs for the lanai/patio so guests can sit outside and see Crescent Beach/Gulf. We did have two issues which were reported to the Main Office the first morning and not resolved by the end of our stay. A service person did come to the room to check them out the day we reported our issues, but the issues persisted, so we called closer to the end of our stay to report them as still not resolved. They weren't deal-breaking issues to us (French-horn-sounding water pipes in the bathroom sink when the water was running and a dripping water sound from the AC condenser each time it would cycle off). The front office staff were very friendly, as were the security personnel when we checked-in at 10 pm.

Overall, we had a great experience at this property, and I would recommend it for up to two people. It makes a great getaway for a long weekend or an extended vacation. You'd be hard-pressed to stay any closer to the beach, anywhere.

On corner by entrance door so privacy was lacking and couldn’t see water unless standing.

Recomend highly

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I came to Florida for my daughters wedding and stayed in this unit and we loved it. The unit is just right for two people. It was just beautifully decorated, clean and comfortable. Having our coffee in the the morning on the patio with a beautiful view of the ocean was so calm and relaxing. It has a small kitchenette supplied with all you would need to prepare a meal. I cant say enough about our stay here except it was perfect. If your looking for a great place to stay in Siesta Keys, this is the place. We are definitely looking forward to return here. It was wonderful.

Great location!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just spent a week in this unit and loved it!!! This is our third stay in the towers at the Palm Bay club. This unit was perfect for the two of us. Kitchenette in unit so we were able to have breakfast and lunch in the unit and have dinner out or order takeout in the evening. The unit is so clean and the decor is very nice and relaxing. This unit is on the first floor and so convenient to the beach. Linda, the owner, is so nice and helpful. We will definitely book this unit in the future!

Owner's Response: It's always nice to hear from guests, and I look forward to having them back. I purchased a new mini-fridge with separate freezer compartment just before their visit, and I'm happy to report it makes a lot more ice than the last one. The separate ice maker machine is also helpful. Let no guest go thirsty! Linda

Ocean view and outdoor patio

  • 5 of 5

Excellent accomodations on ground floor with view of the ocean. Would definitely return here again! Outdoor patio great for enjoying meals or just hanging out with enough room for six adults to enjoy cocktails in the evening. Most other condos in the Tower don't have outdoor space, so is was a major plus! Although the room is standard hotel room size, the addition of quality kitchen amenities including brand new appliances for preparing breakfast and lunch was great. The only thing missing was a place to make or store ice.

Found patio table leg broken when arrived and maintenance and owner extremely responsive with replacement the same day. Check in and out was simple and quick. Staff on property are efficient and pleasant. Parking is close, convenient and plentiful. Trolley to village picks up and drops off at condo door...don't forget to tip the driver! Didn't use the pool because prefer the beautiful white, soft sandy beach which was great to walk on in both directions from condo. Owner thoughtfully called after we arrived to make sure we were satisfied with the accommodations. Beautiful sunny weather all four days. Can't wait to come back!

Owner's Response: I wish our fridge/freezer made more than the two trays of ice. Today (June 17, 2016) I ordered a portable ice maker machine that makes ice in just a few minutes and keeps it coming! Linda, #18 owner

Weekend Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at this property for a long weekend in April (Friday - Tuesday) and it was wonderful!! The location cannot be beat - it is exactly as pictured. The Palm Bay Club was easy, clean and accomodating! They even gave us guest bracelets to allow for our 4 friends (who were not staying at the Palm Bay) to join us everyday and use the facilities, beach chairs, etc. The room is what you would expect of a hotel room, with a good sized fridge. We did have a car, for which there was plenty of parking. We would absolutely return here, no complaints. We walked the beach every morning and had great nightlife in the village. A really fantastic trip.
