WiFi was not good. Water pressure was terrible. Lots of tiny ants outside around trees made their way into our RV. Tight spots which were difficult to maneuver into due to narrow roads. Concrete pad was filthy with grease and foods stains. We camped at Sun-N-Fun RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Let's start with the PRO's: (1)Level site (2) Excellent (if a little limited) cable TV (3) Decent WI-FI (with the exception of our first day and a half when we had little to none (AP's keep crashing) (4) Electric strong and steady (5) Good clubhouse for our rally group Now the CONS's: (1)Water pressure low and no water on our last morning for almost an hour (2) We were escorted to our site but no help was given backing into our site (road was very narrow with other units and trees nearby) (3) While there are three entry lanes, the one we had always used in the past was closed -- except for one evening when they actually opened it but the man moving the blocking posts was as surly as humanly possible (4) There is a "hitching area" where you are supposed to hook up your towed. We could not use it because somebody had left a huge car-hauler trailer in the middle of it. WTH ?? (5) noise. Quiet hours are supposed to be 10 PM to 8 PM, but there were several sites yelling and screaming until well after 11 PM. ENFORCE THE RULES !One site even had a roaring open fire. Again, enforce the rules. (6) KIDS. Unsupervised LITTLE kids all over the place on bikes, some even well after sundown. (7) This park has lot of one-way streets. The cars and RV's drive accordingly, but the staff often speed on these one-way streets going the wrong way. I actually saw one staff member come down a street the wrong way and then stop his golf cart DIAGONALLY across the street so a car coming the RIGHT way had to stop and wait until he slooowly did what he wanted to do and finally went on his (wrong) way. We camped at Sun-N-Fun RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Location was convent to shopping, circus museum, and friends. Park was very close to I-75 on/off ramp. Large park but there were some common areas attached that were very nice to walk along the lake. Friendly staff. We camped at Sun-N-Fun RV Resort in a Motorhome.

A true "resort style" park with lots of amenities. A very large park with mostly park models. A smaller section for RVs, but very nicely done. large pool, water slide, bar pool side, music on the weekends, lawn bowling, shuffle board, cart rentals, lots of meeting rooms.

After staying here for short intervals to visit friends and family in the Sarasota area, this was our fourth winter (January thru early May) staying at Sun N Fun. As others have noted, if you can't find some activity to get involved with, it's you own fault. For us, we seem to have been busy nearly every day. The staff, both full time and volunteers are outstanding (with the exception of the spotty assistance when backing into sites, especially for those with limited RVing experience). As large as it is, the park is clean, neat and well-maintained. The WiFi is adequate for many folks, but for people doing banking and other heavy-duty and.or personal work over the Internet, a private "hot spot" is recommended. Since Sun Properties purchased Sun N Fun, noticeable investments have been made. We take exception to the view that people are cliquey. To the contrary, we have found that across the several dozen activities we are involved with on a regular basis, people have been open, warm and if trying an activity for the first time, more than willing to help. My only recommendation for the park is to better police the 10 MPH speed limit and under-aged children driving golf carts and mini-motorcycles. Having stayed in some 350 different RV parks, campgrounds and state/provincial parks across the United States and Canada, the value, given the many activities available, is the best we've seen. We camped at Sun-N-Fun RV Resort in a Motorhome.

As with the park, itself, if one can't find things to do in the Sarasota area, they simply aren't looking. Best bets not to be missed, however, Sailor Circus, Mote Aquarium, Sarasota Circus, Herrmanns' Royal Lipizzan Stallions, Myakka State Park, Sarasota National Veterans Cemetery, Big Cat Habitat and the Siesta Key Sunday Night Drum Circle

This truly is a resort. If you have nothing to do, it is your fault. There is always something to do. The reservation people are awesome and will do almost anything to make you happy. Their cancellation policy in awesome as well. We would stay there again if in the area. So why isn't it a 10? 1) People are very clique. But they get better, one you get involved everybody gets nicer. 2) our lot 397 was in-between a meeting room and a park model. 3) When escorted to our site, the person just left. If it wasn't for a nice neighbor who showed us how to go the wrong way down the street., it would have been almost impossible to get into out site. 4) WiFi is terrible, and Verizon is only 1 bar We camped at Sun-N-Fun RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Okay, so this review comes with a caveat. It's under new management (when we arrived) so I think a lot of the issues will be addressed in time, will see. On arrival, impressed with the entrance, the huge water slide and the check-in. We were escorted to a unhitch area to unhitch our trailer from our fifth wheel and then escorted to our lot around a very, very tight turn. The lot didn't impress us at all, lots of gravel, not kept up at all. We were close to the pool so the area we stayed in was grand central, trucks, diesels and movement all hours of day and night. I think the biggest kicker was their bulldozers / bobcats going back and forth, shook our RV regularly. The slide was only opened on Saturdays for a few hours. And we were VERY surprised they didn't open it on Christmas day with all the families present and the sun very hot. They have a full woodshop, art studio, billiard hall, shuffleboard and pool. The pool is amazing, backs right up to a full bar with alcohol and music. We visited the park because it was kid friendly, but on many occasions that was not so. One staff member rudely yelled at us for bringing my 10 year old boy into the gym to workout with me, "he can't be here". Same happened with bingo, except the lady was rude over the PA system. Having played bingo at Jellystone, the kids looked forward to playing and instead had to feel the sting of a rude, cranky person. That is pretty prevalent throughout the community so if you have kids, be ready for it. The price they charge is just not worth it in our opinion (with kids), but the place is HUGE and lots to do. Beach is a drive away so its the park or a long drive. We camped at Sun-N-Fun RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Been here many times and have always enjoyed it. Nice pool, hot tub, pool bar, lake for the kids to fish, lots to do. Place is always adding to the amenities and doing a great job. For a larger motorhome, ask for the Queen section. Nice pull thru's. We camped at Sun-N-Fun RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We normally spend four months here during the winter/early spring. Our summer trip was occasioned by a need to visit a very ill friend. This is our favorite Florida campground! Staff wonderful. Incredible number of things to do, in and out of the park, even in the summer. We camped at Sun-N-Fun RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Camp grounds were clean and good, but no privacy from neighbors. Bath houses might be a hike to get to from your spot. Only benefits to this place are the large pool and activities that are included with stay. You still have to pay extra for premium activities - per day. Also outside people not staying in the park can book all the tables near the kid pool area and main pool area for parties. This leaves guests of the park with kids having to sit further away and out of the kid area. My suggestion is stay somewhere else and pay for day passes to this place for the one or two days you want to come here. It would be cheaper. We camped at Sun-N-Fun RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Very family oriented park with all the activities. I was disappointed in the fact that the WIFI barely worked for the basic checking e-mail. Other Sun Communities offer streaming WIFI for a few extra bucks Easy access in and out and anything you might need is close by. We camped at Sun-N-Fun RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Loved everything except the internet. Was told there was wireless through out the park but we couldn't get on line without going to the main office/pool area. When you work while traveling this is a problem. If you need to work from your site I would say pay your carrier for unlimited data. Everyone we met was friendly and helpful.

We just finished a nearly four month stay as Sun-N-Fun for the second year in a row; although we had stayed there for brief visits in prior years. Having stayed at more than 300 Campgrounds and RV Parks/Resorts across the US and Canada, I am comfortable in stating then NONE offer as many varied activities as Sun-N-Fun. It is very conveniently located just a mile off I-75 with easy access to nearly every type of shopping one could want ... yet away from the hustle and bustle of downtown Sarasota. We have already reserved for to come back next year. We camped at Sun-N-Fun RV Resort in a Motorhome.

This resort has everything for folks who need a lot of amenities. We did not use any of the amenities - just used it as a base for exploring the surrounding areas. There are a lot of manufactured homes and permanent 5th wheels in this RV park - mostly well maintained, with many brand new ones being added. Many permanent sites - some well landscaped, some not. The park had a lot of empty spots around us, thus the site we stayed on seemed more spacious than it probably was, although the hook-ups were not conveniently located. We stayed with PA for 2 nights ($33 - $34) and then with a special stay 2 / get 1 free ($44 - $44 - $45). If you are looking for a place to stay with a lot of activities, this place would be great for you. We camped at Sun-N-Fun RV Resort in a Motorhome.

If you're looking for a spot with more than 178 seasonal activities, Sun N Fun RV Resort is for you, and you will pay for the pleasures. If 18 shuffleboard and 15 pickleball courts aren't on your requirements list, then the place is pretty pricey. Our $90 gravel site was level, had all the standard utilities, and was open enough for a satellite dish. Earlier, we parked for two days at a $60 dirt site, also level and equipped but with trees blocking the dish. Wi-Fi was sometimes OK, sometimes not (which seems to be the industry standard). On-site personnel were competent and friendly. There's only one exit and traffic backed up for several minutes around the 11 a.m. checkout time. Attach your toad at your site to avoid congestion at the "hitching site". We camped at Sun-N-Fun RV Resort in a Motorhome.
