This was my first visit to Blue Water Beach Club. I read everything on the website and many trip advisor reviews before making my reservation. There are a lot of good amenities that I didn't see mentioned (may have missed them) but I'm posting them here for future guests. Our hotel room had white wicker furniture including a small dinette... More

The major asset is the location (on the water & nice grounds). Very quiet. While the physical structure is well kept, the furnishings/decor is drab and minimal. Our studio unit was not properly stocked and the TV (football season) was not functional .... a new one was provided, but barely larger than a computer screen.

Dear Philip P, Thank you for staying with us and writing a review on TripAdvisor. I apologize for the broken TV, which we had to replace with a smaller TV until the warranty repair had been finalized.

The hotel is in a great location and only blocks away from shopping and restaurants. How could I not mention it's right on the beach! Our room was steps away to the beach and on the main floor. It had a nice patio seating area right out of the large sliding glass doors with a breathtaking view of the tropical... More

Just came back from a week stay in room 212 at the Blue Water Beach Club. It is always very scary picking a place to stay via the internet, but we took our chances.

We stayed here for Labor Day Weekend 2015. We live in SW Florida but had never been to Anna Maria Island and thought it would be the perfect getaway to celebrate our anniversary.

Very pleased, we had a pool right out the back door and the beach a few more steps. The hotel was very clean and very friendly, the manager was very accommodating with any question I had about restaurants and sights to see.

At Bradenton Beach to attend a wedding and booked a room at Blue Water Beach Club based on previous Trip Advisor reviews and a couple of delightful phone conversations with one of the front office staff, Anna May.

We loved this place! It was sparkling clean, right on the beach and the staff could not have been nicer! We only stayed 3 nights and did not want to leave! The only thing I wish was that we could bring our little Pom, since I missed him a lot.
