We stayed at barefoot on the beach for 6 nights in May, to recharge our batteries after 10 mad days of theme parks in Orlando. The ocean view rooms are what memories are made of. The room itself was perfect with everything we could have wanted. The staff are fab, very helpful if you need them, full of local knowledge,... More

My wife and I stayed here from 9/21/10 until 9/25/10 and from the moment we walked into the resorts' office we were treated with great service. You may say 'well customer service is there job' and you would be correct but the difference here is that it felt extremely genuine not just someone going through the motions. The woman who... More

This is our 2nd yr. coming to this hotel and it's been such a great experience! The rooms make you feel as if you're at home, yet the beach is right outside your balcony (if getting an oceanfront room). The rooms are very clean and and modern in style. One thing I love the most is that they don't clean... More

The photos on the web site are deceiving. The room was small and way over-priced. The room was very clean and you could tell it had been renovated but not worth the rate charged at all. The bed was a double bed with a cheap mattress. The pool, which was very small, had hours from dawn til dusk. That is... More

We had the best time, we planned to stay one night and stayed for three. I wish I could remember the girls name at the desk because she was the best. Very helpful and NICE!!!! Accomodations were wonderful!! We had adjoining suites with my brothers family and we had a terrific view of the ocean!!!

They gave me a great deal to stay there (maybe due to non-peak time of year) that was better than some lower end hotel chains that can't even compete with this place. Nice clean room with tiled floors. 60 yards from the ocean. Air conditioner was on before we even got to the room so we didn't have to wait... More

We have been vacationing in Madiera Beach for 5 years and this was our first stay at Barefoot Beach Resort and it will definitely not be our last. First of all, the staff was so friendly and accomodating. I have never experienced such kindness from front office staff at any hotel ever. Next, our room was amazing! Our room was... More

After reading reviews on Tripadvisor, I made reservations at Barefoot Beach Resort for what I hoped would be a quiet, relaxing getaway. My husband and I stayed there last Tuesday through Saturday. It was perfect. We were right on the beach with a wonderful view of the Gulf. The room was very comfortable and we had everything we needed. I'd... More

Quaint little beach front resort away from the crowds. Private strip of beach right off the elevator! Guests leave behind beach chairs, umbrellas, toys, for the benefit of future guests. Propane BBQ available for guest use. Publix groceries 5 minute drive away Very clean, recently renovated. Walking distance to St. John's pass, hub of activity for those looking. Pool clean... More

I am so glad we checked Trip Advisor for locations around St Petersburg on the gulf and found this hidden gem. We felt like we were treated as family from the moment we arrived. We stayed in the beachfront room that has an amazing view -- beautiful sunsets and our last day we saw dolphins from our balcony. The sandy... More
