This was a shot in the dark as far as a location. We were not familiar with Bradenton Beach prior to the booking. The area far exceeded my expectations. The location could not have been better on Anna Maria Island. I loved how we could just park the car and walk everywhere. It had a small town old Florida feel to the area. The beach was right across the street and it was outstanding. I loved how chairs, beach towels and umbrellas were provided. It was also nice to be able to travel with them throught the week when we went exploring.
The local eateries were top notch, comfortable and affordable. Many had sunset views. We really enjoyed the bar outfront. We are from Missouri so it was a plus to watch the playoff games on big screens enjoying the nightly bands.
As for the rooms. It was huge, well accommodated and very clean. We kept the murphy bed down the whole time and still had a nice seating area. The screened in porch was an added bonus. But by far my favorite part was the bathroom. There is nothing worse then cramming two people into a tiny hotel bathroom. The shower was oversized with plenty of room for two. The jacuzzi tub was an added plus.
