Great place to stay and have fun with a group. We had a party of 7 stay at Club Bamboo South this past weekend and had a great time. The rooms were alright and good enough for as little as we were in them. The pool was awesome and right off the beach which was really important to our group... More

We spent our Memorial Day weekend at Club Bamboo and loved it. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The room was a little dated but clean and equipped with everything we needed and more. The view from room 217 was fabulous (even though another small property is obstructing the view a bit) and we spent long mornings and late... More

We stayed in room 217, at the end of the top floor, beachside. Room was clean, kitchen well equipped, and the AC was cold. We got great, courteous service from the lady on the front desk, who gave us good advice on where best to find Manatees, and on decent places to eat locally. When we booked this place, it... More

We look forward to our winter get away to Anna Maria Island and the beautiful sunsets from our balcony at Club Bamboo. The studio rooms suit us perfectly, sleeps 2 adult comfortably with pull out couch for 2 children.

We stayed in room 123 and had the perfect view of the gulf. Helpful staff, heated pool and great location. Needs a few upgrades but not many. Lampshades were broken and light switch in bathroom is in an odd place. I would stay here again.

My friends brough me here as a surprise and even though I had a sofa bed, I slept like a dream listening to the surf. The well-appointed kitchenette encourages eating in, that is on the balcony with a sweeping view of the Gulf. Spotlessly clean. Kitchy, but tasteful beach deco adds to the fun. Plenty of white sand for shelling... More

Tour the room before you commit. The reservation process was easy and nice. Booked the room at the Edgewater Real Estate office in Brandenton Beach then headed off to the room. The pictures they have don't represent the condition and amenities of the room. Upon entry....The bathroom door handle fell off, TP Holder fell off wall, the Bathroom sink was... More

Very dirty. Pull out couch was terribly tiny and uncomfortable. Staff was not friendly at all. Poorly managed. You have to pay for toilet paper. That is ridiculous! Not accommodating. The views were great, but the rooms were awful. Broken faucets and doorknob. Shower had mold. Refrigerator had an unknown substance on it that wouldn't come off. We got put... More
