A very pleasant staff, clean condo, and a short walk across the road to the beach at Indian Shores, Quieter part of the Gulf of Mexico on the shores of the ocean. When we go, will always, chose this resort. Front desk girls are so nice and one of the employees, took a picture of us to put in their... More

Would stay again. Check in was fast and easy. Room was clean and quiet. Very short walk across the street to the beach. Walked and had ice cream down the street. Grills were also available. The pool was busy but clean and warm. Everyone was friendly. Thank you for a great stay!

We had a great experience here for the month of FEB. We already booked next year so that says how much we enjoyed this year. Our condo was filled with lots of extras especially in the kitchen; plus beach chairs, WiFi, and more importantly very CLEAN and comfortable. Great owners (Steve and Nancy Triplett) were very responsive, easy to work... More

Hubby and kids agreed I did a great job picking this condo! The whole experience, from talking to the woman booking our trip--her patience with me in explaining the details, to the outstanding condo itself, to the beach experience. We had a much needed relaxing vacation and would definitely return! Even the laundry room where I washed our beach towels... More

We've just read your comments on your stay and we're very sorry your small son had to endure some rudeness from other guests while at the pool. We want all our guests, no matter what age, to enjoy all we have here at the resort and that was a very unfortunate incident. Please know that Barefoot actually is very well... More

A lot of these condos at Barefoot beach are owned and rented out on the vrbo.com website. You can see individual reviews from vacationers that have stayed in your particular room. These owners seem to really care about their property, because they don't want bad reviews. I have stayed at Barefoot Beach in 2014, using vrbo.com to book. We are... More

Thank you for taking time to comment on the condos here at Barefoot Beach Resort. You are correct, vrbo is one way for people to book particular units at the resort. We do want to add, however, that we as the management company for the resort are on hand for those who book directly with us, and many guests feel... More

We three women arrived late. Our concern was no staff to let us in, but just as the agent who booked us, April, stated; our packet and directions were in the envelope drop box and it would be simple.. it was. We had an upper floor , and since I d made the arrangements: the other two were skeptical whether... More

We stayed in 205 Feb 9 - 14. These are individually owned condos. You may get one updated and nice OR old and and out dated. Unfortunately ours was not updated and the beds were the worst I have ever slept on. We had two bedrooms and all beds including the fold out couch were awful!!! House keeping needs to... More

This hotel is different from all the hotels I have ever stayed. The front desk guy that checked us in was very helpful and super friendly. The hotel office closes at 9PM. You have to check in before 9. Free parking and walking distance to restaurants and Bars.The beach was quiet. There was an area in the back that had... More

Thank you for taking time to comment on your recent stay with us. You are right -- a condominium stay is quite different from a traditional hotel, including services offered and amenities, but for those who want affordable spaciousness and room to spread out, condos have a lot to offer. We're pleased you enjoyed your stay and appreciate the comments... More

We spent a week in Unit B 213. Don't let the older appearance of the resort deter you, our unit was up-dated inside and, outside of a few items, in good condition. We had a great view of the inter-coastal from the sun room and enjoyed watching the birds, pelicans and even a few Dolphins from our room. It was... More
