We love Longboat Key. It's a quiet, low key area in Florida that is ideal for families. Sand Cay's proximity to the beach is ideal! A 30 second walk makes it easy and enjoyable. However, our unit was tired and too small and cramped for 2 adults and 4 children. Even though some upgrades have been made to the unit,...

We wanted a 2 bedroom condo with tennis courts on the beach at a reasonable price and Sand Cay met all criteria. We stayed at unit 210, a pool view location. The positives were: a well-stocked clean apartment, especially the kitchen, a great layout inside with a nice feel, a nicely done master bath, inviting decor. The negatives were as...

Like many other of the reviews I am reading we had the same situation with our condo, certain areas needed updated and/or repaired. We stayed in unit #213 and it is our 4th time at Sand Cay. We love the location and the area and will be back but will be choosing another condo. The floors squeaked in the living...

Our condo at Sand Cay (#215) was renovated, simple beach theme decorated, and very clean. The kitchen has everything needed and new and we had breakfast, lunch and happy hour in the condo during our stay. Publix is awesome and close. The porch overlooks the ocean and has bar height table and chairs. There is free Wi-Fi, a charging station,...

Unit 118 is outdated! However, We love Sand Cay / LBK and have been coming for years.......this time, we stayed in Unit 118 (1st floor / ocean front ~3K week). I'm giving the Unit 118 a POOR rating. The resort itself was great: grounds were beautiful and beach / pool was excellent..... The online pictures of this unit are misleading...

We booked Unit 104 for two couples for a 5 night stay. The master (king) has an attached bath and the second bedroom (queen) used the main bath. It was nicely decorated, clean and bright. We chose this unit b/c we did not want twin beds in second bedroom. To our surprise it had many extra towels...both bath and beach....

This was our third year at Sand Cay and the condos are a crap-shoot; we honestly come back because we love the location and the beach is incredible. Two of the three years there have given us disappointing condos and we spend the week telling ourselves to think of it as camping (sad, when we're paying $2000-3600/week) We chose Unit...

Been staying at SC regularly since 2001, resort looks great with the upgrades made to decking, landscaping, and love the plentiful new beach chairs! This time we stayed in unit 317 ... killer view, enlarged bathrooms, nice furnishings & nicely equipped ... very comfortable unit.
