Booked through expedia. Unit was ok but really needed some updating. As each unit is owned independently, perhaps other units had better decor. We did have a nice view of the intercoastal and the grounds were well maintained. Having just come from Siesta Key - I will go back there. Lots of high end condos at Longboat but the beach... More

Hired a 2 bedroom apartment for family. Arrived noon but the room wasn't ready until 4pm. Not great with a baby. Once in the room was clean and tidy. All amenities provided. Wifi _ check...what else is there! No major grumbles. Reasonable value given the stunning location.

Stayed at the Tradewinds Resort, Anna Maria Island for about ten years straight during the 4th of July holiday. Tradewinds got to be run down and the staff were consistently rude! Anna Maria itself is crowded and the main street is narrow and unsafe for children. Summer rains often flood many areas of the main drag there and the sidewalks... More

We stayed here for two nights with three other couples. Great place...small but perfect. We stayed in units 21 & 22 and they were perfect for two couples each...very, very clean and comfortable. It's great having a kitchen, even if we didn't cook. Just being able to have room to put out snacks, make coffee and have dessert is wonderful.... More

Beach Castle is a good value and an OK place to stay. Most condos are individually owned so they are all a little different in terms of furniture and decor. Our condo was a 2/2 and very basic. The pool is a little small but the beach is quiet and just a short walk if you stay on the gulf... More
