We stayed at the Gulf Shores Resort, which is a timeshare, that is in the same location as Smugglers Cove. The 2 bd/2ba condo was very spacious and plenty of room for 5 adults and 1 child. The rooms were decorated really nice. The pool was nice. The office staff was so nice and accommodating. The location is great. We... More

Although the property is a bit dingy the natural surroundings are so spectacular that it hardly matters, on-site parking, tiny pool and adequately equipped units. The beach is across the road from the block and a bicycle is handy for sightseeing,

I can't quite afford to stay for a week on the beach on Anna Maria Island, but across the street was almost as good. Two adults and two children had more than enough room in the one bedroom with a pull-out in the living room. The kitchen was well equipped as we cooked breakfast for two extra adults, and transported... More

I stay at many timeshare resorts all over- this one was probably the worst.. but, that didn't make it bad. I say that because it is older & smaller than most. I was not bayside so my view had to be the worst ever. I didn't have some things that I am use to from ts rooms- like s&p, washers... More

We just returned from staying at Smuggler's Cove. The resort is nice if you have a view of the bay, which we did. The gardens were beautiful! It came well appointed- I was very pleased with the dishes, serving bowls, etc. The room could have been updated and could really use a washer and dryer but overall we enjoyed it... More

My sister and I took a much needed sister vacation for a week @ Smugglers Cove. If you can't get a resort on the beach it's the next best thing, directly across the street. The free trolley that runs daily was a huge plus. We barely drove our car at all. The Anna Maria Island has a beautiful beach with... More

We visited the smugglers Cove resort first 3 years ago and liked it so much returned the following year and purchased a weeks timeshare. It is not a top of the range timeshare resort, but the location is brilliant. For anyone that likes peace in a lovely location Bradenton is the place for you. Lots to do, if you like... More

I've been a timeshare owner here since 1996. I come for 2 weeks every May and love the place so much that I don't even think about giving it up. The staff have been here as long as I've been an owner. They are super friendly and helpful. Anna Maria Island is the best place in Florida. Smugglers Cove has... More

We stayed at the Smugglers Cove through a timeshare rental. We have rented many timeshares in the past few years and really enjoyed them. This resort is average. We tried to check in a few hours early and of course couldn't. So we went and ate lunch out. On our return back the unit was still NOT ready. Very frustrating... More
