Unlike other area resorts, this property does not have a resort fee or charge extra for parking
Area offers few amenities besides a beach, and Tampa and St. Petersburg's attractions sit more than 25 miles away
Think of the Sheraton Sand Key Resort as a stress detox: Sit along the gulf shores of Clearwater Beach, Florida, listening to the lapping waves, sipping on a cocktail (delivered via a beach buggy) and letting your troubles wash away. Or, hop up on the pool deck and catch some sleep in a sand-free chaise. Both activities are major pluses that come with staying here, guests say, as are the resort's on-site spa and sunshine-kissed tennis courts. Vacationers are also wowed by the friendly and helpful staff. You'll find the Sheraton Sand Key Resort on Gulf Boulevard on the city's barrier island, Sand Key (about 26 miles west of Tampa and 27 miles northwest of St. Petersburg). Another perk? There are no resort or parking fees at this waterfront Sheraton. And, because this property is affiliated with the Marriott hotel family, Marriott Bonvoy members can earn and use points here.

Critic Reviews


Sheraton Sand Key Resort is a 390-room upscale property that's located adjacent to Sand Key Park in Clearwater Beach. The family-friendly 10-acre resort, which faces the Gulf of Mexico, is also popular with corporate meeting groups.



Expect something special when you stay here, including a modern property and one of the few uncluttered beaches in the area. The nine-story resort is set on ten well-manicured acres, and many rooms have excellent Gulf views; others keep an eye over an adjacent park.



Located on the Gulf of Mexico, this resort offers rooms with private patios or balconies, some of which have an excellent view of the beach. Rooms are spacious and decorated in modern dark wood tones.
