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

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

This resort with beautiful pool was right on the beach with all the kitchen amenities and central A/C. Quiet location with easy walking distance to local shopping. The sunsets were incredible with wbnderful Gulf Coast breezes.

We had a wonderful family reunion at this beachfront spot. Small resort but clean and comfortable rooms, attentive friendly staff, WiFi, HD TV's. All the modern amenities in a very relaxing setting. A few steps to Holmes Beach, pool, and nearby restaurants & shopping. First time to Anna Maria Island but will definitely come back.

We visited Anna Maria for the first time to celebrate our anniversary. While the room was just ok we enjoyed the convenient location near stores and restaurants. It was a very short walk to beach although we only enjoyed a few good beach days thanks to Mother Nature. Not much to do here on the island when raining. Spectacular sunsets.... More

We had 17 adults and 15 kids come to the AMI Beach Resort for our family vacation, and the venue was exactly what we needed. The staff was friendly and helpful and the facilities were in good shape for being RIGHT on the beach. We cooked out on the outside kitchen every night and swam from morning to night in... More

This review was a little hard to understand. We have most likely the strongest Wifi signal, and high speed access on the Island, so why she said no internet is hard to understand. As stated before, improvements to the Resort are taking place as fast we are able with new Owners. We full Resort, so we have to mind full... More

A picture is worth a thousand words....you decide. We personally cannot recommend this place to anyone ...and now they claim they have been sold. The choice is yours; it is over $200 per night and you even get to do all the work on your vacation like make the bed, take out the trash and chase down a "clean" towel.

Great photos on the website. They spent all their money on landscaping and a small pool. The 2 bedroom unit we had DID NOT have a dishwasher, ice maker or washer & dryer. Nor was there a washer/dryer to use anywhere on the premises. The second bathroom was off of the Living Room and poorly lit. There are warning signs... More

The Resort is Quaint, it is not a Hilton or Ritz Carlton. It is great place for Family vacation, many, many guest love the Resort, and few don't. It is true it does not have a dishwasher, or laundry in the rooms, but it does have Laundry facilities on site which supplies and endless supply of clean linen, towels and... More
