Building and rooms were well maintained and freshly painted. The complementary breakfast was very good with lots of food options. Pool bar area was very nice with good entertainment. We had to have our room keys recharged twice, which was inconvenient.

Christmas at Siesta Key

Pros: Location
Location: Good restaurants
Overall poor service at breakfast and front desk. We paid for pool view but it was just pool side, did't see the pool from our room. When we arrived the room was full of bugs running in all draws. One day coming back from the beach at 5.30pm the room was still not done.
