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

This place has the greatest location on Anna Maria! We had a family vacation and had several rooms which are located right on the beach - no roads to cross and next to the public beach which has full menus for breakfast, lunch, and dinner as well as nightly entertainment! The rooms are clean and are nicely appointed including a... More

My family has been coming here for years. Great location... walking to restaurants, beach and shopping. Awesome amenities... beautiful garden and private pool. The staff is available daily and always helpful. Our two bedroom suite was spacious and clean. Would recommend AMI Beach Resort to families or couples in need of a sunshine state get-a-way!

The staff here is awesome!! They are awesome at meeting your needs. The rooms are very clean and the decor is beachy!! Anna Maria island inn and its sister property are the only spots we will stay. Btw we even saw a giant turtle come up on the beach at night!😍😍

We have been using Anna Maria Island Beach Resort for more than ten years, for family vacations, retreats and get-a-ways.

Been coming here for the past five years. The resort is always very clean and comfortable. It is our favorite location on the island. The landscape is beautiful. We visit Anna Maria Island twice a year and we always stay here, and we are looking forward to. Returning in October. See you soon! Todd and Norma

My wife, son and I stayed June 4-10. The room was filthy. Dust and grime, dead bugs all around bed, clump of hair on bath towel, big makeup smear across pillow case and the gross drain screens in bathroom & kitchen. The pool was filthy. After 2 days the pool guy showed up. He took the green color away but... More

This was a great location and was like a little apartment. Very comfortable, clean and quiet. Updated furniture, full kitchen, Wi-Fi. Right outside the door is the public beach and it's very close (walking distance) to a grocery store, drug store, restaurant. I enjoyed sleeping with the patio door (that was in the bedroom) open each night. The office is... More

I'm driving home from the beach now. I wished we had stayed a few more days. Don't expect to find a hotel the day of because most places get booked ahead if time and for days at a time. They don't do many single night rentals. The beach wS amazing. Clear waters, found several star fish. Will def go back!
