Paradise - Trip Advisor Comment

We had a very spacious 2 bedroom suite overlooking the Gulf and a beautiful white beach. The room had a full size fridge, washing machine, dryer and full size stove. I have stayed in many hotels both on business and with the family and this is definitely one of best. Even the cafe and bar doesn't charge silly hotel prices but even if they were given out free cocktails, I don't think it would entice my wife and 1 away from the view from our balcony. Fantastic, highly recommended.

Fantastic Vacation - Trip Advisor Comment

Very spacious 2 bedroom suite with beautiful gulf views! The condo was very clean and the property well maintained. There was an on-site cafe with cooked to order breakfast and lunch items which were tasty and VERY fairly priced. There was also a tiki bar located at the entrance to the beach. Great service and pricing as well! I have to say that we never used the pool while we were there but instead spent all of our time on the beautiful white sand beach. We were able to rent chairs and paddleboards very easily. Would definitely return!

Sunset Vistas...we're impressed!

I had decided to ease into to my 40's by having a beach weekend with my family. Beach weekends are something we have done in the past. This time, I went looking for something that would accommodate each of us. Something that would allow for family members who were unsure if they would be able to fly in, room enough if they did. For activities; I was planing to spend my time Surf fishing, beach bumming and cooling off in the gulf with those family members who loved to do the same. For the rest, I was looking for something with a pool, and nearby activities such as shopping for those less enthused with salt water, or a full day in the sun, sand, and salt. Sunset Vistas fit the bill. Sunset Vistas offers a home-away from home feel. Like your own condo on the beach. The ones we stayed in were two bedroom, two bath. The master bedroom had it's own bathroom and balcony access. The unit itself had a water view as I think each of them do. These are like condos, fully equipped: kitchen, washer and dryer, dinning and living area. Tv's in each room. Perfect! Just down the road, I mean walking distance, is John's Pass Village; great for those who want to do a little shopping. Plus, there is a near famous ice cream place literally next door; it's the Shake Shack, for those who want a really good chocolate malt. I had one, and it should be famous, it's that good. I have to say, we were each impressed with the cleanliness of the unit, the friendliness of the staff, and their attentiveness to our requests. The grounds are well kept, well maintained, with a beautiful garden area in the middle. There is a little cafe in the front which was perfect for breakfast or lunch. The food was good and the prices were good too. There is also a bar at the end of the units facing the water. The tenders were friendly and the cocktail I had was very good. As I was there celebrating my 40th birthday; I decided to invite a few friends and co-workers to join us on the beach for a little bbq. My whole thought was a casual get-together on the beach. From my first conversations with the staff regarding my wishes, they we're both friendly and helpful. They informed me that I could make use of the cafe area, which would be quite nice for an event for a few reasons: it's covered, so weather would not be an issue; has a bar inside, overlooks the garden area, and they can cater if that is something you're interested in. But, I was thinking more sand between the toes: beach, beer, and meat. The staff did everything humanly possible to honor my wishes. On the day of our event, the management staff met with me to ensure everything was in place for things to go on without a hitch. I explained to them there was an open invitation of sorts and I didn't know exactly how many would show. When I gave the staff a number of who might show, they had their staff prepared to handle all guest parking and were fully ready to assistant our guests. I was shocked by their attentiveness, their helpfulness, and their attention to detail. It was as if they managed an event or two before this one :-) They were great! So my 40th went off without a hitch. The weather held, the grill area was secured, the coolers were in place: we grilled, we had sand between our toes, we ate meat, we drank, we celebrated, and the people here and Sunset Vistas helped make my 40th birthday a memorable one. Thank you Sunset Vistas!

Wonderful weeks vacation - Trip advisor

Just returned home. Traveled with husband, and 4 kids ages 2-11. We stayed 7 nights. Our room was very well cleaned. We were 3rd floor, south side. We could see the beach from our deck, at an angle. I spoke to the manager before we arrived about some concerns regarding my daughters food allergy. He provided me with everything I needed. No questions asked. Our check in was by far one of the easiest check ins ever. The lady was more than helpful. We had a flight delay, and we were all starving. She helped us get some quick food and pointed us in all the right directions. My kids saw the signs warning about the sting rays, and it scared them a bit. The lady working the desk this day was so kind, and talked to the girls all about the sting rays, and reassured them that they were safe and to have fun. That's just what they did! There is no towel exchange for the pool/beach, however, the front desk will have towels sent very quick up to your room, anytime. There is also washer and dryer in the unit. We used the café for breakfast the last few days. The ladies working in there are great. Very friendly and helpful.

On the beach, there is fantastic shelling if you can swim out a bit. We put our older 2 on a noodle (found in the courtesy box) and they were able to kick out with us. There is a sand bar that goes on forever right after the part where you cant touch. We found all kinds of cool shells, and sea life. Just remember to leave anything living alone.

I cant say enough about the friendliness of the staff here. Everyone from the front desk to security was always saying hello and smiling. Nice change from the people I deal with everyday!!

Third stay - loved it! Trip advisor

This was our third time staying at Sunset Vistas and we would not hesitate to return. We stayed in 602W and the only "issue" we ran into was needing an extra skillet to make french toast. Within a few minutes, the front desk sent up a brand new skillet and spatula - service, service, service! Beautiful views and area.

Excellent Beachfront location-trip advisor

My wife, teen-age son and daughter and I stayed at the Sunset Vistas July 12-18, 2013 and had a wonderful time. The condo was open and airy with a very large kitchen, big living room area, two full bathrooms and 2 separate bedrooms. It was definitely big enough for my family.

The bonuses were the washer and dryer (which we used a couple times), the full-sized, modern appliances, flat screen TVS in the 2 bedrooms and living room, and the updated furniture in each room. We definitely felt comfortable and at home. Our second-floor room had a fantastic view of the Gulf and a large balcony which stretched outside from the main bedroom to the living room. Both rooms had a door wall accessing the balcony.

The condo had central air, so we never had a humid, muggy feeling in the room. The beds were comfortable and clean, and all of the appliances worked well. The cupboards and drawers in the kitchen were fully stocked with pots, pans, dishes and utensils. We also did not have any issues with the WiFi. My laptop, iPad and iPhone never had any wireless connection issues.

Housecleaning came a couple times during our stay and they did a fine job. The customer service at the front desk was very helpful with helping us decide on restaurants and local sites to see. Check in and check out were very smooth. Also, each room gets a parking space, which was very convenient because we always knew where we parked and it was close to our room.

The pool area and surrounding grounds also were tropical and very pleasant. Plenty of chairs and tables at the pool, which definitely was in full use while we were there. They could use some speakers playing music at the pool though. A tiki bar serving drinks also was close to the pool. You also can bring your own cooler with drinks (non-glass) down to the pool area.

The beach was directly outside the hotel property grounds with a very large beachfront. Very clean and well-maintained white sand beach.

The Sunset Vistas is in a great location between Clearwater and St. Pete Beach with tons of great restaurants all around. A large Publix grocery store is about a mile south where you can stock up the kitchen and refrigerator with food and beverages. We found some great restaurants heading north, including the Conch Republic Grill in North Redington Beach, a couple Crabby Bills restaurants, and Sloppy Joes about a mile south at the Bilmar.

We will definitely stay at the Sunset Vistas again. Very, very pleased with it.

Mr. and Mrs.

Our family stayed at Sunset Vistas during July, 2013 in a two bedroom suite. The suite was very clean and well equipped/furnished. The beach was wonderful as was the pool. The staff was friendly and helpful and we were allowed to use the facilities (pool, beach, fitness center, cafe, etc.) while we waited to check in (we arrived at 10 and our room wasn't ready until the 4 pm check in time). We had a wonderful time- thanks Sunset Vistas!!!
