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 were not disappointed in any way. This is a terrific property directly on the Gulf Beach, beautifully maintained, reasonably priced, excellent... More

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.

Location, location, location! This property is right on the beach. Just steps to the ocean. Our room, 212, was on the 2nd floor and directly over the pool. It was an apartment with a kitchen area, living area, dressing area, bedroom (with a twin bed and double bed) and a newly remodeled bathroom. What the décor lacks (it's very dated),... More

We've been staying here for several years now and we continue to return! This place is so quiet and serene! Every room is wonderful - even if you have to settle for one with two full beds! 😉.
