“Seen better days”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2014 via mobile

I first came to the Sunrise Garden Resort several years ago and was pleased with the service the value of the rooms and the lush tropical feel to the gardens. I have visited several more times but this last visit was lacking in several respects. The property is aging and there has not been enough upgrades to keep up with the times. Mostly I think I miss the good natured charm of the owners who have relocated to another state.

Thank you for coming back to Sunrise Garden Resort for a return visit and thank you for taking the time to write a review. We are happy to report that our gardens are more beautiful than ever due to the new hire of a gardener! We chose to hire a new gardener to ensure that Sunrise Garden is more beautiful than ever, which our repeat guests say that it is! We are also having new pool lounge chairs delivered this week to ensure that our pool continues to be the single best pool at any hotel on Anna Maria.

We are excited to share that we have major renovations planned for later in the year. Some upgrades in store are new granite countertops for the kitchens as well as new art and new furniture which are being selected now. Our guests are sure to see an even bigger improvement by the end of the year. Since we have had an average 90% occupancy for the past two years, we are reinvesting in the property to ensure that we continue to earn your business each year.

I am sorry you missed me during your visit as I was just on Anna Maria a few days before your arrival. I hope to see you next time. Thanks again, we hope to see you for a return visit soon.

Very quaint and quiet hidden palace, never would know it was there from the street. Private patios for every suite, super clean gorgeous landscaping and friendly staff. Walking distance to restaurant bakeries and gorgeous Ana Maria Island beach and pier. Am definitely looking forward to going back and taken my family. also a super nice relaxing pool.

Room Tip: Any room in this resort is an awesome pick,the ones on the first level are facing the pool.

My family discovered this spot a couple of years ago, and now we can't go often enough! It is absolutely our favorite getaway. Thoughtfully and comfortably run and appointed, allowing guests to truly relax and enjoy. You walk out and see the Gulf to your right and Tampa Bay to the left. Great restaurants. Wonderful fishing. You get the idea.

My husband and I stayed here this past weekend ( memorial day wknd 2014 ) It was very nice. The landscape is beautiful and tropical. The pool area was very nice. It was extremely quite ! This resort has units, like little apartments, so no hotel lobby to walk thru or elevators to take. You park and just walk right to your unit. We stayed in unit 15 and then switched to unit 12 our last night there. Both units were very nice and each had a small private outdoor area. It is one block to Tampa Bay ( if even a one minute walk ) and there is a beach there. This beach would be great for little kids as the water was very shallow and no waves. There is a restaurant right on the corner. There is also an ice cream shop and a few little stores. The Anna Maria City Pier is also right there. There is a restaurant at the end of the pier. We thought the food there was excellent. Many people were fishing on the pier. There is another pier about a mile down the road. That is the rod and reel pier. It also has a restaurant. The food was ok but we liked the restaurant at the pier closer to the resort better. There a few shops around the block from the resort.... Boutique style. There was also a place to rent beach chairs, bikes, etc... About 3 or 4 blocks the other way from the resort is the gulf of mexico. It's about an 8 - 10 min walk. Parking is very limited by the beach there so it is much easier to walk. The beach was beautiful with soft white sand...no loud music or obnoxious loud people ( I'm used to ny beaches lol ) The gulf is very calm also...no large waves. There was a manatee swimming right by us. There is a restaurant right there on the beach that we had dinner at one night. The food was great. There are several shops on the road that runs next to the beach. This is the north end of the island. We drove down to the south end of the island and it was much more congested and seemed to have more of a party atmosphere with a ton of motels. We were looking for a quiet relaxing weekend, so the sunrise garden resort was perfect for us. The staff was very nice and helpful..we had a great weekend.

We are relaxing poolside after a thoroughly enjoyable 2 night stay with a family of five. We stayed in 6 &15 and both were very clean, large rooms stocked with everything we needed. Pool and gardens are beautiful and poolside cabanas and grilling areas are over the top. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. We will be back!

We stayed at the Sunrise Garden Resort for our anniversary. We came across this hidden gem after seeing it on House Hunters (HGTV). Even though it is an older establishment, it was well kept and clean. We loved the quiet solitude, and enjoyed exploring Anna Maria. Even though we live in Florida, it was a great getaway! We will return to Anna Maria and stay at the Sunrise Garden Resort!

My wife and I stayed here in mid May. We loved it. It blew away my images/memories of Florida on family vacations driving to the big attractions. It was our first trip to Anna Maria Island and we found ourselves making plans to return. The Sunrise Garden is in a good location; an easy walk to the pier or the beach. It's also close to the market and dining. The Sunrise Garden is very walkable. Our visit was during off season, but I could imagine walkability being a big factor in peak season when driving might be a little congested. Anna Maria is a lush and relaxing place with a great beach. It might be little sleepy for those looking to party if that's what you're in to. I wouldn't necessarily consider it a foodies' destination either. We ate fine, but I'm not going to be raving to my friends that they need to visit for the dining.

The Sunrise Garden was clean, comfortable, quiet, and friendly.

Room Tip: We stayed in apartment #6. I've seen some people complain that it's not really a pool side...
