We book the entire unit for my parent's 50th Wedding Anniversary. The restaurant that we booked was about 5 miles away only. Each two units are up and down but are away from each other so every time we want to gather around, we all have to go out (even in the rain) to get to my parents unit. But... More

Although the unit was clean, it was a disappointment for our month long getaway. The unit is very dark, as there are immovable outside shutters that prevent natural light from coming in. There is no screen door on either of the outside doors, so no light can come in there either. There is no fan in this small bathroom, and... More

We had never stayed in this type of "apartment" style housing before and we were completely blown away by the Blue Dolphin. It really is a home away from home. It had great island decor, comfortable furniture, well stocked kitchen, fantastic beds, and large shower in the master bedroom, There was even a gallon of ice cream in the freezer!... More

We just returned from a family reunion at the Blue Dolphin Inn on Anna Maria Island and we could not have been happier with our accomodations. It was perfect for our reunion. Upon arrival our Host, Angie, had everything ready for us and even a cute coffe mug filled with candy with a thank-you note. Angie also called us to... More

My short unexpected 3 day stay at the darling skimmer apartment (which is one of the four individual 2 or 3 bedroom units) was so very pleasant . When we walked in it was nice and cool, clean, and the bedrooms had that extra touch to make you feel very tropical and not at all the typical beige or neutral... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Our beautiful beach property includes four spacious, charming units surrounding a heated, tropical pool in an ideal location at the quiet north end of Anna Maria Island. Each unit is adorable, roomy, and super comfortable! You will find all the comforts of home and so many extras! Our place feels like a lush tropical hideaway and we???re just a short stroll (about 60 yards) to the sugar-sand beach and clear blue waters of the gulf. ... more   less
