BWBC is a wonderful old style motel located directly on the beach between two condos. Our family has been staying there for 30 years, every February. The beach is only steps away. The free trolley will pick you up near by and you can go anywhere on Anna Maria Island. It is a small place, almost totally refurbished, but still... More

I always use TripAdvisor to plan my vacations. My stay at Blue Water Beach Club included. I was very happy with my choice. I've traveled quite a bit in the last few years. And in doing so I know now that corporate hotels are not an option. Family run or just small places like the BWBC are the only considerations... More

we had a condo right next door for several years. So after it was sold we checked out Blue Water since we loved the location: close to shopping, restaurants, trolley stop, and of course, right on the beach. We stayed in apartment 123, a 1-bedroom - more than we needed, but what was available. We were on the ground floor,... More

We arrived two days ago to a beautiful private beach right outside our room. Check in was completed by a very friendly woman who went out of her way to answer questions. Thanks to Beth. The room was very clean and decorated with pastel colors. The wiring leaves a lot to be desired as there are extension cords all over... More

We just finished a three night stay here. We love the Blue Water resort. Its a clean lovely place to enjoy the beach. The staff are friendly and helpful. There was some remodeling going on while we were there. It was unobtrusive and still a quiet retreat. Good job owners keeping that in check! Hopefully we'll get a chance to... More

I just spent a few days at BWBC at Holmes Beach. I really enjoyed it - the beach was gorgeous, my room was immaculately clean, comfortable, and exactly as promised. It is located among some more upscale resorts, but I liked the old-school Florida vibe (kind of like a two story motel from the 50's). Even though it is an... More
