The Sheraton Sand Key Resort sits on a quiet sandy strip of beachfront in Clearwater, Florida, and offers guests a reprieve from the city's usual bustle. 

All of the spacious guest rooms have either a patio or a balcony, as well as upscale linens on Sheraton's signature beds. The hotel's pool is flanked by plenty of loungers; snag a spot poolside or oceanside to take in stunning sunsets on the horizon. Play a round at the on-site tennis courts -- racquet and ball rentals are free. 

A full fitness center is available for complimentary use by all guests. Dining options range from the creative dinner fare at Rusty's to cocktails and lighter fare at the Poolside Cafe and Poolside Bar. A tavern and bistro-style grill are also available.

Pool and pickleball courts were great. Service was good.

This was advertised as a gulf view room. The fine print said partial gulf view. One can only see the gulf from the beachfront or in the very corner of the room by the door to the balcony. Misleading and disappointing. Probably the smallest bathroom of any hotel I've stayed in. Good luck closing the door if you are already sitting on the toilet!

The food at the restaurants is not the best, but frankly we found the food throughout Florida to be disappointing. There is one nice mexican restaurant called Cantina Marina a short drive from the hotel that I can recommend for their food and drinks.

The setting
Other Comments
Our room was facing the tennis courts and we were awakened at about 0830 in the morning by workers using a generator for resurfacing the courts. Not fun when you want to sleep in. Also, tapping by the maid on the door next to us that resonated to our room.

beach and fine dining

Few things I disliked: -there was coffee but NO cups ( had to call to order) -the roof view was sad and noise coming from AC there was loud. Those things were minor and didn't influence on my fantastic experience with this resort.

I asked abt points. They said because I booked w an outside party I wouldn’t get them. First room was BAD. ODOR. Burned my throat. View was over a dirty rooftop about 12-15 ft below w scaffolding(?)folded up just below our window. No view of water I asked for. Asked to be chg’d. Other side of flr looking over pkg lot and CT’s. Tiny view of water if standing in Val BAD BATH - maybe 5 Ft by four w tub. Could not close door without twisting around by tub. HURT MY KNEE. BAD!! Restaurant ok. Set up as sports bar. Pool table. Didn’t get to try other one. Beach hut menu bad. Didn’t buy. Beach very wide. Long walk to water.
