“Returning next year.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

Last fall we decided to go South for the first time in 16 years. After a lot of scouting around on the net I discovered the Sunrise Garden Resort. With all the positive reviews and very few negative comments we decided to give it a try. Well, long story short, we couldn't have been happier. The clean rooms, Spence's hospitality, the warm and relaxing pool area all made for a wonderful holiday. A short walk in the morning sun to the City Pier was a great way to start the day. After supper a ten minute stroll down the quiet avenue found us on the famous white beaches of the Gulf coast to watch the sunset. Close enough to both beaches but also far enough away to avoid the crowds and traffic. A prime location. Put all of this together and you have a great destination for a relaxing holiday.

Sunrise Gardens was referred to us by a friend. What a hidden gem. Everything you could could want for a private getaway. Great accommodations located in the best part of Anna Maria Island. It is within walking distance of so many shops, restaurants, the beach and the pier.
We will definitely be back.

We went back again to Anna Maria and stayed at Sunrise Garden Resort. We loved it. The location is wonderful and the accomadations were better than expected. Spence makes you feel at home. Planning another trip back.

I can’t say enough good things about the Sunrise Garden Resort. I just wish we had more time to spend there, which is why we will be back. We are actually planning on inviting our family to join us for our wedding if we choose to get married on the island. I can’t think of a better place to invite our guests. Spence was very accommodating and hospitable. I am so glad we were referred to this resort.

The hotel is nice, like new with the remodeling. The room was very clean and homey.
We rented bikes at a place around the corner, and we could easily get anywhere we wanted to go without ever getting in the car.

Room Tip: We were in #11, it was very nice.

Cannot say enough about the lovely piece of paradise we found on Anna Maria Island. Sunrise Garden Resort was recommended to us by a local resident and we were not disappointed! It was exactly what we were looking for - a bit of 'old Florida' - quiet, intimate, low key. Good location. Walk to everything - the Bay, the Gulf, the shops, the restaurants. Pool is heated and surrounded by lush landscaping. Rooms are comfortable, with inviting individual patios, also surrounded by beautiful plants. Spence and Jess make you feel welcome and appreciated as guests. And they respond to even the most minute requests and suggestions. We have stayed here twice, and certainly plan to stay again - even longer. We like the fact that not only do other guests have positive feedback about the Sunrise, but other local business owners respond very favorably about Spence and the resort when we mention where we're staying.

This quaint "resort" deserves its high rating/reviews. Spence adds a very personal touch to one's stay, from the check in escort to your accommodations to accessibility throughout. We were floored that he had a new plush mattress delivered one afternoon after we shared that our bed was not so comfortable! Everything was very clean in our unit. It is a quiet location. The pool and patio surround were very nice. We would recommend Sunrise Garden to anyone and look forward to staying again!
