Our first time staying at this hotel and we really enjoyed our stay. We stayed in the Sunset combo room (efficiency suite with adjoining standard room) facing the Gulf. The rooms aren't fancy but clean and comfortable. There was plenty of room for the 5 of us. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. We ate at both restaurants,... More

I loved the room, and the hotel. The restaurants around the hotel were great too. The beach access was great. The only thing that was annoying was that they charged an additional resort fee. It was like $50 for three nights on top of the cost of the room I had reserved through an online site.

First the good news: It's on the beach and the rooms are clean. The staff was very nice. The bathroom was a little worn out, but it wasn't bad given the age of the hotel. It was built over fifty years ago.Personally, I don't like staying at hotels which do not have interior doors and this is one of those... More

I'd read a few reviews that weren't great so I was a little nervous but WOW, was I impressed. The hotel is wonderfully located and our room was magnificent! All rooms except pool view look out at a beautiful sunset every night. The beach is straight out and wasn't crowded at all. You can check out chairs at the hotel... More

This was the perfect venue for our daughter and new son-in-law's beach wedding! Built in 1960, the Bilmar has retained the Old Florida look and feel - but the amenities are comfortable and modern. Along with a beach ceremony, the Crystal Sands Ballroom was also a perfect venue for the reception. The catering, banquet and front desk staff were amazing... More

This was a very nice clean resort. The cleaning employees were always working, cleaning rooms (spotless), cleaning stairwells, cleaning the pools, even a paint crew. It is an older resort and not commercialized like other areas of Florida which I loved. The only issues I had was having to go to the front desk, 3 times, to report a broken... More

The hotel is right on the beach close to restaurants and anything you might need for your stay. The outside looks outdated and you might even think you made a mistake booking it. Fear not my friends the rooms are super clean updated and do not at all smell like that old hotel smell we all know. As far as... More
