Sand Cay is an exceptional property for your trip to Longboat Key. We stayed in 319 - the cathedral ceilings, comfortable furniture, beautifully appointed kitchen, and well supplied bed and bathrooms made the stay an absolute pleasure. And oh, the views!!! Easy to deal with trash, recyclables, onsite laundry, office staff very friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating. An absolute pleasure.

This is our 2nd and last time at Sand Cay. The grounds, pool, beach and most views from the units deck are what most folks come here for and those are great! Inside the units you may find a different scenario. Our unit #204 was pretty much furnished with collectic crap, uncomfortable beds, smelly bathrooms, utility room stuffed with junk...

Just returned from a week at the Sand Cay. Beautiful beach, wonderful pool, and so close to great restaurants, shopping, and sports activities! The resort is impeccably maintained and has lush landscaping. We stayed in Unit 205, which was clean and nicely updated, with a direct view of the gulf. Good place for families and couples just wanting to kick...

Two twins, one against closet door making closet useless and other against wall and a foot from noisy air conditioner compressor. Total storage in this bedroom = 2 small night stand drawers. FORGET THIS ROOM! All mattresses needed replacement...

Tried to use Sand Cay’s online reservation system to book a week.  I filled out the entire form but the system wouldn't accept my information.  I tried from both my laptop and iPhone.  Called Sand Cay and left 2 messages, and sent an email asking for help.  No response.  The next day, I called again and Ian answered.  When he...

Sand Cay was exactly what we were looking for. Our family had a nice condo with 2 BRs and a pull-out couch. We were located on the ground floor and could walk to the beach in moments. The condo itself had an excellent TV with all the latest gadgets. The complex had a tennis court, a pool and a basketball...

“Like everywhere else, fold out couch/bed not very comfortable. Other than that furnishings and kitchen items well stocked and in good condition. View from room was not "full ocean view", cost was same for other resorts with FULL view.”

“We have stayed in various units....I found them all to be relatively the same...I wouldn't worry too much about it. Personally, I like to be on the top floor but that is just my preference, We didn't here any noise when staying on the lower floors.”
