Bottom Line

The value-oriented Beach Palms provides suites and cottages conveniently located right by the beautiful Siesta Key Beach and near many restaurants and shops. Homey interiors are sun-lit and clean, though some may find the functional Old Florida decor a bit kitschy or old-fashioned (many find it charming). The two suites and three candy-colored cottages are fully furnished, including kitchens with stoves, ovens, dishwashers, fridges, and microwaves. The cute cottages have private porches and patios with swim spas, hammocks, and grills, and are a popular choice with families. Suites also have access to a brick patio and private grills. Wi-Fi is free, but there's no pool on-site.

Scene

Furnished suites and colorful cottages across the street from Siesta Key Beach

Situated across the street from the gorgeous white sand Siesta Key Beach, Beach Palms has suites and cottages that suit travelers and families in search of a quiet and relaxing stay at reasonable rates. The property is reminiscent of Old Florida and the candy colored cottages bring to mind the kaleidoscopic hues of Key West. The lovely and vibrant grounds include three cottages and a main building, a white two-story structure with turquoise detailing, where the suites and office are located. The buildings are surrounded by palm trees and lush plants, with plenty of garden furniture, sun loungers, and hammocks scattered about the property. The beach is visible from the main building and the lovely waterfront is a short walk through a grassy expanse bordering the sand.

The interiors are clean and bright, filled with lots of natural light, though decor is dated and furniture is a mash-up of styles and textures (wicker chairs coupled with pastel hued floral patterned couches). There are no common spaces or amenities such as a lobby, dining room, or pool, as this property is not a hotel, but geared towards rentals, providing guests with all the essentials. The Beach Palms particularly attracts families, who enjoy the self-sufficient cottages and proximity to both beach and restaurants and shops. The atmosphere at the Beach Palms is peaceful, sunny, and relaxed.

Location

Across the street from Siesta Key Beach and around the corner from restaurants and shops

Beach Palms is located on Siesta Key, across the street from the beautiful white sand Siesta Key Beach in a quiet residential area. The beach is a short walk away via small path through a grassy expanse that borders the beach. Siesta Key Village is around the corner and home to many restaurants, bars, and shops that line Ocean Boulevard. The nearest bus stop is around the corner from the hotel. The nearest airport is the Sarasota-Bradenton International Airport, which is 10 miles away and about a half-hour drive from the hotel.

Rooms

Simple, homey suites and cottages with kitchens and living rooms

Beach Palms consists of two suite units, which are located in the main building, as well as three separate cottages. The decor is a bit dated and some items are in need of an upgrade. The interiors are light and bright, courtesy of large windows and white walls. White bedrooms have cheap and colorful bedspreads and tropical Floridian paintings adorning the walls. Aged, pastel patterned couches in the living rooms could use an update. Bathrooms in all units are small, though clean, and lack toiletries besides soap. All units come with beach chairs and umbrellas.

The one-bedroom suites have sunny and spacious living rooms with sofa beds as well as a full kitchen or kitchenette. The Beach Tree Suite has a small kitchenette with two-burner stove, microwave, toaster, coffeemaker, fridge, and kitchenware, while the Beach View Suite’s fully equipped kitchen also includes a dishwasher and stove with oven. Suites have access to a brick patio with lounge chairs and private grills.

The cute, colorful cottages have porches and private patios and are surrounded by palm trees, lush plants, and flowers. Cottages have two bedrooms, a living room, and fully equipped kitchen. All have hammocks outside and swim spas on the patio. Cottages provide more privacy and sense of seclusion than the suites, and are a popular choice with families.

Features

Private gas grills, hammocks, and cottages with patios and swim spas

Beach Palms lacks typical amenities found in most hotels in the area, such as a pool or dining area. Each unit has private gas grills and hammocks outside. Cottages have private porches and patios with swim spas and garden furniture, while the suites have access to a brick patio. Beach chairs and umbrellas are provided in each unit, and Wi-Fi is free. The beautiful white sand Siesta Key Beach is across the street.
