Casey Key Resorts – Beachfront Review

April/May 2022

ARRIVAL/CHECK-IN: I planned a trip to Sarasota to visit some co-workers in late February and arrived at Casey Key Resorts – Beachfront in the early evening after driving all day. Situated on a narrow road lined with vacation homes, rentals and cottages, I found Casey Key Resorts – Beachfront tucked in between, with clean white walls and a designated parking space for guests. The resort lies on the same stretch of road that trails through the gorgeous beach homes of Siesta Key.

This keyless resort sent me an email with a code to enter my room. Each door exits to the outside for optimal enjoyment of the Florida sun and Gulf breeze; and upon walking around the corner to my room (Room 7), I suddenly faced the blue waters of the Gulf of Mexico and the white sands of the beach. My doors opened right up to the beach, facing the setting sun.

GUEST QUARTERS: The resort recently renovated the rooms of the beachfront properties. In addition to having my own designated beach chairs and umbrella just outside my door, the influence of the beach continued in the décor and layout of the room. The bed sat in the center, facing the French doors so that, as the sun set, lying on the bed entailed a bask in the golden light.

The back wall featured black metal wall lamps as well as a wooden surfboard sitting behind the bed, positioned horizontally with the cursive “Surf ” scrawled on the front. The room incorporated neutral tones like whites, creams and tans to draw some of the earthy tones of the beach into the room. In addition to a spacious closet, microwave, WiFi, smart television and mini fridge, the bathroom further elevated the room and was, in my opinion, a highlight of the stay. The mirror had a light-up option to provide natural lighting for makeup and hair styling. The standing shower featured intricate tile flooring with a sleek glass wall and a built-in shelf on the far wall.

SERVICES/AMENITIES: The beachfront resort lies just five miles down the road from the mainland resort, and guests can take advantage of its many amenities. While the beachfront properties come with private beach chairs and direct access to the beach, additional amenities at the mainland property include a resort pool and tiki bar, which serves refreshments Thursdays–Sundays. Guests can also enjoy their in-room Keurig coffee machine.

Those wanting an escape to the quiet Gulf will find much- needed respite at this resort. Casey Key Resorts – Beachfront blends simplicity with the beach to create a calming ambience.

  • TOP TAKEAWAYS:
    Sitting just steps from the beach, few other resorts can boast having the Gulf of Mexico on their doorstep with a private view of the waters.
  • At night, the resort is quiet and allows guests to fully enjoy the solitude and peacefulness of the beach. Despite the resort sitting near other resorts and vacation properties, the area is quite calm.
  • Recently renovated from top to bottom

Former 1940s-Era Italian Bank Transformed Into Rome EDITION Hotel

It is hard to resist the pleasures of Rome, a city filled with world-renowned paintings; sculptures; thousands of colorful cafés; and hundreds of ancient buildings still standing and often used as offices, homes and museums. Certainly, Rome is the cradle from which all that is best about Italy emerged. It is difficult to open a new hotel in Rome without connecting it to the city’s history, art and culinary tradition. When Rome EDITION opened last year, it was the perfect fit for a city that lives and breathes all things extraordinary.

Hôtel des Grands Voyageurs Review

It’s often declared Paris’ Left Bank, or La Rive Gauche, the local side of the Seine —  where bohemian and chic are used superfluously, albeit with some veracity. It only makes sense that travelers looking to stay on the Left Bank would seek as local an accommodation as possible — Hôtel des Grands Voyageurs is the new kid on the block and certainly delivers this with its design following the likes of a Parisian art collectors’ residence.
