“We will be back!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

We stayed in the hotel type room. This is our second time at the Tortuga Inn and each time the staff at the front desk have been very helpful and friendly. Our room both times has been clean and very comfortable. The free shuttle that you can pick up out front is very easy and convenient. The beach is great for long walks in either direction. We have found the Tortuga Inn to be quite and easy for a relaxing stay. We will be back again next year.

Room Tip: The hotel rooms on the second floor have smaller outdoor space than the same room on the first floor...

We stayed in a garden condo. It was a 1 BR with a tiny view of the bay over the top of a bldg. The room was clean and had a washer/dryer. The bathroom is in the bedroom which we found inconvenient. We drove so got there at noon. Our room wasn't ready till exactly 4 pm which was a pain. Not being familiar with the area we had to find something to do for 4 hours. All we wanted to do was rest and shower but had to wait a long time. At Disney for example they ask the approximate time of your arrival and try to have a room ready for you at that time. We had to leave early due to a family illness and they were very understanding or I would rate a 3. It was so so for us. Room was over 400$ a night with tax. Not worth it in our opinion.

Room Tip: We would stay in a gulf view room if staying again but we like a room right on the beach so probably...

We stayed in a two bedroom/two bath on the Bayside with the semi-private hot tub. Loved the privacy and quiet side of the Bay which could be enjoyed from the patio area. Clean, friendly staff and neighbors. Kitchen adequate. Very convenient to see the area and just walk across the street to the beach! We would return!

We stayed at the Tortuga Inn Beach Resort in November 2012, for five days with our friends. This was our first time visiting Anna Maria Island. We had a 2 bedroom / 2 bath deluxe apt. with a partial bay view with a screened in porch. The apt. was in the Tortuga Garden Apartment building. The apartment was very tastefully decorated and very clean! It was nice that the cleaning staff came everyday and freshened up the bathrooms and brought clean towels. So even though we stayed in the apt., it was like staying in a hotel! The pool area was kept very nice and inviting. The weather was very cool when we were there, so we only used the pool once. The beach was across the street and they provided beach towels, and lounge chairs. It was a nice beach. Our condo unit had a washer & dryer right off the kitchen. Overall, we had a great time at the Tortuga Inn.

Room Tip: Our apt. was a corner unit so we had a nice bayview from our screened in porch!

We stayed in a 2 bdrm deluxe in the Tortuga Garden building. It was a beautiful two bdrm, 2 bath condo that was nicely decorated and very clean. We have previously rented houses for the week while on vacation. This year we decided to spend alittle more & stay here. It was well worth it. It was nice to be able to have hotel ammenities like the two pools or just grab a towel from Tortuga and just walk accross the street to the beach. We were there in mid January and had no problems getting a beach chair. The dining/living room area was big enough for us to invite family that lived an hour away to come and have dinner with us. Our rooms didnt have the updated TV's, but hopefully by next year they will be there - that's the only improvement I would make. Be sure to take a boat ride with Captain Kim on her pontoon boat (if you have six or less people) - my son loved getting off on the sandbar with her and finding shells.

The Tortuga Resort Inn is a Paradise within a Paradise ( Anna Maria Island)! Across the street from their private beach on the white sands of the Gulf, complete with lounge chairs, sand umbrellas, and beach towels, the Tortuga offers luxury 1 and 2 bedroom condos, as well as smaller suites. The pool area is beautifully maintained in a tropical landscape. This is our second consecutive year at Tortuga, 1 week in 1012 and the entire month of January in 2013. With great food, shopping, and miles of white sand beach to walk, the Tortuga is the perfect destination for ANYONE looking for Fun-in- Sun !
In addition to the wonderful surroundings, I am most impressed by the Staff. From the very helpful and lovely ladies and gentleman at the front desk, to the cleaning and maintenance folks on up to the managing partners, David and Liz. Everyone has a sincere desire to make your stay as pleasant as possible, from recommending eateries to faxing documents. This is a MUST stay when visiting Florida !
Thank you David, Liz, and the entire Tortuga Staff ! See you next year ! !

Stayed for three nights with my wife. Beautiful property with friendly staff. We found the rooms roomy and unique with built-in book cases and beautiful artwork. Most rooms an open air central courtyard with tropical plants, palm trees, and koi ponds. Feels like staying in Hemingway's house. Our room rate was very reasonable. There are more expensive suites that face the bay or gulf. The pool is heated and the pool area is quite nice. They have a private beach just across the road with chairs and umbrellas provided by the hotel. The road is only one lane in each direction, but since it's the only north-south road on that part of the island, it can be difficult to cross because of the stream of traffic. Breakfast is not included but there is a charming french cafe on the premises that serves breakfast and lunch. . Any number of good restaurants on the island for dinner, and the Bridge Street area can even be walked to from the hotel. All in all, a little bit of paradise
