“So accomodating for a great ladies' weekend. Renovated!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2011

We arrrived on a Friday morning and were allowed to check in early. We were a group of sisters and friends. Our villa style room was clean and private. Small gardens separate each room. The pool was clean and nicely landscaped for privacy. We never felt crowded out. I would also say this would be a great place to take my husband for a romantic getaway or the whole family for a mini vacation. Spence the owner of the hotel helped us to look forward to our trip. That hospitality continued when we arrived a bunch a giggling women looking forward to a weekend of recharging. We had a complete kitchen and had everything we needed to make the place like home, including a convienent back entrance to additional parking. The beds were comfy enough and the bathroom was tastefull updated. There was plenty of space for our whole group of 9 women to hangout in our room. We booked two rooms. We stayed in room 8. We parked the car when we got there and didn't use it again for three days! We ate at the Pier restaurant two nights and enjoed the food there. We actually walked out of the Sandbar restaurant after experiencing three rude employees before we were even seated. Oh well, that didn't spoil our weekend at this beautiful location. AMI doesn't have a big nightlife scene as the city has a 10 pm quiet ordinance. Oh well, that made our midnight beach trip quite enjoyable with noone around. We went kayaking on day two and had a wonderful time paddling through the mangroves and out to a big lookout tower.

Room Tip: Room eight is great! We never heard our neighbors and were located by the pool.

My wife and I stayed for 9 nights and was absolutely blown away! The rooms and service is impeccable! The grounds were well groomed and maintained. The flora and fauna were bright, beautiful and stunning. The location is right where you want to be. Our room was spacious and being on a honeymoon, we enjoyed it. We were able to relax and unwind from all the hectic routines we escaped. We can't say enough wonderful things about our stay and the management in place. Spence, the Property Manager, took care of all our needs! We will be back very soon!

It may not be right on the beach but it's got a homey feel that can't be beat! Great tropical pool area, a couple blocks to good restaurants and 5 or 6 blocks to the gulf. not a problem with staying around the pool after checkout. Clean and well maintained...we had a great weekend!

Spense and Jessie have really turned this small family resort in to a gem this year. My husband and I stayed at this same resort 8 years ago and 5 years ago when owned by another couple . We found this place to be a great family find with reasonable rates. Between our prior visit and 2010 the property was had no resident manager and was not well maintained. It got some poor reviews,but now it is back to its pristine feel. Linens were fresh and plentiful. Shower hot and spacious. Kitchen very nicely equipped. Refrigerator clean, in fact the whole place was very clean and fresh smelling . The pool was clean and in use a lot. The grounds quiet after hours for sleep.
Sunrise Gardens is located close to the pier which itself is worth a stroll for a seafood lunch and the Sandtrap Restuarant is w/in walking distance as are many other little shops. I would for sure stay at this place again in the future and highly recoomend this family style resort.

My wife and I spent 2 days at this lovely family-friendly "resort." More like fully furnished luxo studio apartments that one can feel right at home with living room and full kitchen. Really nice and CLEAN. New owners Spence and Jessie plan to live onsite to ensure top quality experience for all guests. My wife and I plan to return next year for another mini-vacation, and will also tell our family and friends about this tropical jewel.
