We were staying in Ana Maria Island for the week. My friends' kids were dying to play putt-putt but the locations closest to where we were staying closed WAY too early. It was virtually impossible for 10 people to go eat dinner and then make it to those putt-putt places before they closed. So we drove out to Smugglers Cove... More

OK, call me cheap, but I think $37.00 and some change is high for 2 seniors and 1 child under 12 to play 18 holes of miniature golf. However, they have at least 3 very easy greens to get a hole-in-one which was a treat for our 10 year old grandson. On hole 17 which is fairly easy a hole-in-one... More

My wife and I usually play putt putt everytime we go on vacation and this was one of the nicest courses we have played at. It is a little pricey and I can see how a large family may not want to pay it, but for the 2 of us it seemed fair. (Note to managers: Maybe a lower cost... More

We've been to Smugglers Cove three times now. The facility is nice and the alligators are nice, but it's just so expensive. My family had coupons and still paid $48 for two adults and 2 kids. If we wanted to feed the alligators, you needed to pay extra. It's just crazy for an average family to have to pay so... More

Smugglers cove has 2 locations, Bradenton & Sarasota. They are both very nice, clean mini golf locations. The awesome part is that for a little extra you can actually feed alligators!! Very nice family place.

I've been visiting Bradenton for the last 10 years and every time we all go and enjoy this super fun place. My godparent's friends were asking them if they were out with their 9 years old... and (unfortunately) I'm not that young anymore! This is an amazing place to go, relax and laugh with your friends and family. I've got... More
