When it comes to family beach spots, nothing tops Siesta Beach in Sarasota – gradual slopes, shallow waters, gentle waves, fine white sand and translucent waters.

It continually makes several of America's Top 10 lists of best beaches based on sand, water quality and facilities. In 2017 and 2019 it was ranked the #1 beach in the Nation by Dr. Beach. We have direct beach access to Crescent Beach, which is a private beach, and offers the same beautiful white sand and crystal blue waters.

You can check current beach conditions anytime by visiting

A red tide is a higher-than-normal concentration of a microscopic alga (plant-like organisms). In Florida, the species that causes most red tides is Karenia brevis.

This organism produces a toxin that can affect the central nervous system of fish. At high concentrations (called a bloom), the organisms may discolor the water. However, red tides are not always red. They can appear greenish, brownish, and even purple in color. The water can even remain its normal color during a bloom. Local Red Tide reports can be viewed at
Red tide can cause some people to suffer from skin irritation and burning eyes and respiratory discomfort. Use common sense. If you are particularly susceptible to irritation from plant products, avoid red tide water. If you experience irritation, get out of the water and thoroughly wash. Do not swim among dead fish because they can be associated with harmful bacteria.
Upon registration a major credit card, and photo ID are required. All vehicles are required to display a parking pass.

Key card locks and in-room safes are individually coded for optimal safety and privacy. If you are planning to arrive after 9pm please contact the hotel directly for late night instructions and further registration details.
