“Short Trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

We had 3 friends visit us in Stuart,Fl and they wanted to visit the Gulf. I found availability at the resort for a couple of nights in trhe Garden Appartments which was perfect. Everthing was great except for the cool weather. Staff was friendly and location had restaurants within walking distance.

Spent 1 week at this resort. Our room was a studio overlooking the bay. It was so quiet with a patio with a private hot tub where we spent most of our time. Short walk to some businesses with restaurants & shops.The resort supplies beach chairs,towels &umbrellas at no extra charge which was a great surprise.

I’m a Florida resident and booked this place last minute to spend some time with my family a little closer to the beach. Our dog travels with us whenever possible, so that helped to narrow our choices down to pet friendly Tortuga Inn. The place turned out to be a very pleasant surprise! Our rooms had a walled-in little private yard/entrance; well equipped kitchen, and overall everything was super clean and comfortable. Nearby is the Cortez Fishing Village with their fresh seafood restaurants. We plan to return in summer because the shade, breeze, and the trickle of the fountains in the courtyard will keep us cool even in the Florida heat.

Room Tip: Suites in the first floor have nice private yards.

We made arrangements for a late arrival and found the lights on and the room waiting for us. We had a Studio overlooking the beach and the new Pergola. The staff was great to work with and fulfilled all of our requests. Housekeeping shaped things up each day and the room was in tiptop shape when we returned. This was my third stay at Tortuga and I have never had a complaint.

Recently we had occasion to spend a night at the Tortuga Beach Resort on Bradenton Beach. We chose the hotel because it appeared to be unique. Was it ever! The layout is beautiful with accommodations for most tastes. The staff was warm and friendly-from the minute we checked in we felt like treasured guests. We will most certainly visit again.

This is our fifth year staying at Tortuga Inn Beach Resort. My husband and I always book a one bedroom deluxe condo which is tastefully decorated with a full kitchen, large living/dining room, laundry room, and a large screened in lanai. We loved the bathroom with the jacuzzi and the spacious walk in double shower. Our bedroom and lanai had a spectacular view of Sarasota Bay. Viewing the sunrise reflecting off the bay was a great way to start our day.

The property is well maintained from the cleaning staff to the grounds personnel. Also, the people behind the front desk are friendly, well informed, and very helpful to answer any questions. They make you feel at home.

It is nice that Tortuga Inn keeps making improvements. They recently opened the Le Petit Cafe for take out which is really convenient for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. My husband and I tried their delicious crepes. Also, this year they were constructing a pergola to get to the private white sand beach.

The location of Tortuga Inn is perfect. You can walk across the street to the Gulf of Mexico. The resort has chairs and umbrellas for your use. The beach is great for long walks and watching the breathtaking sunsets. Also, there are so many restaurants walking distance from the resort. With restaurants close by and a free trolley which stops in front of Tortuga Inn, you don't have to depend on a car.

The resort and area have everything you would want for a relaxing vacation. We have already booked our one bedroom for next year.

My friends and I take an annual girls trip and this year we will be going to stay here for 3rd year in a row. We can't think of a better beach getaway. Great location, awesome beach, and nice clean rooms. My sister also got married on the beach here last year and we had the best time ever! I highly recommend this hotel! I won't stay anywhere else in Anna Maria .
