Steve Burton Reviews The Sea Club

I visited Sea Club V earlier this year and a most enjoyable experience it was staying at this resort. The units are comfortable but not as luxurious as some I have stayed at in the past. The units don't have their own washing machines but there is laundry room with coin operated washing machines and dryers. There are no elevators to gain access to units on the second or third floor so please consider this fact if you have any walking difficulties.

I find it hard to put my finger on it but this resort has a special feel to it. Its location is second to none being just one hundred yards from Siesta Key beach with its white powdery sand. This beach has been rated as the best in all the USA by Dr Beach. If you have never visited Siesta Key beach then you are in for a treat when you see it for the first time. It runs for miles and the beach is easy to walk on because of the firmness of the sand.

This resort really brings to mind the phrase that what is important is location, location, location. I actually think it would be a shame to spend much time in the units at Sea Club V when the beach and the Gulf of Mexico is on your doorstep. This is where this resort really scores as it has sun loungers and umbrella's on the beach these are tended to by Nick and Steve. They will also supply you with kayaks, canoes and a fourteen foot catamaran sailboat. All of this is free of charge to owners and guests staying at the resort through RCI.

Unlike Longboat Key there is numerous bars and restaurants on Siesta Key you are spoiled for choice in fact. Nearby is St Armands Circle and the Ringling museum with paintings by many world famous artists.

The resort has a pool, hot tub and shuffleboard is available. There is also a continental welcome breakfast and a cookout during the week.

When you look at this resort on the RCI web site its easy to be put off as the blocks that contain the apartments look rather dated as they are in fact but as I mentioned earlier a visit to Sea Club V is or should be about Siesta Key beach with all it has to offer rather than the accommodation available at Sea Club V.
