My family and I decided to do a 2 week travel in Florida but we didn't make any hotel reservations because we didn't know how far we would go and when we would like to stop. We found this place on Christmas eve. The manager was the only person who returned our call that night for accommodations. All other places... More

The resort has clean beachy themed rooms. They accommodated a wedding that weekend while we were there.This is our second stay at... More

We have come here for 18 years for our family reunions.. We have seen many new owners come in.. Some good.. Some bad.. I remember when it was always lit and always being monitored by management on site... Over all, this is the best location for us with the beach restaurant beach and pool access. This past trip was decent... More

Manager Rick very helpful in any requests, minor problems we had. Was very attentive in making sure this was a memorable stay for the wedding. Resort is older and needs a... More

We had a recent getaway at the Queensgate last month and the location to the beach and cafe stare and restaurant complex a short walk down the street could not be beat!! This is really "bare bones" accommodation though. If the window treatments were replaced and the chipped and dented kitchen table this would gain another star. The staff was... More

Our family reserved the whole place for a week and it was pure heaven...lounging by the pool, sunsets on the beach, s'mores by the fire, cooking on the grill, and more. Time seemed to stand still for a little while and we will treasure the memories there.

Anna Maria Island Beach Resort was the best place for our recent Summer family reunion!! The rooms were clean and we had fully equipped kitchens, very comfortable furniture, and we were able to get clean towels whenever needed. The managers came around frequently asking us if we needed anything also which was very appreciated. Being located right on the beach... More

I have to agree with many reviews on here and give this resort a solid 3.0 rating. The location is perfect. Beach access perfect. Outside areas are good with newer updates as described. But, the units, not so great. As mentioned they are very worn and not so clean. I do understand the transition in ownership and time needed to... More

Richard B, Manager at Anna Maria Island Beach Resort, responded to this review

I do apologize to the guest, and there were some cleaning details missed in her room, they were immediately taken care of. This is not standard procedure, the rooms are totally cleaned and not just brushed over, there is some one at the Resort, or nearby 6 days a week. We do try to take off Sunday, but there is... More

We stayed for a week in july and location, amenities, room and staff were simply the best. Rick and Skipper could not have been friendlier. Could not have picked a better place. Rooms were clean, comfortable and pool was very big. Beach was very close and Bar and grill across street was a great place to sit down and have... More
