“A long overdue rave about the best resort on Anna Maria Island”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

We've just come back from our 12th stay at Queen's Gate. Beginning in 2003 we have made an October stay a part of our annual schedule. This year and last, we found some time in the Spring and we thought of no other place but Queen's Gate.
Beginning at check in and throughout our stay, we are treated as more than guests, we are treated as friends. And we regard the staff as friends as well.
Obviously we are not the only ones to be entranced by Queen's Gate. Beginning with our first visit we met repeat customers, and often we still see them. You've only to look at the wall in the office to see letters and photos from satisfied guests.
Over the years we have stayed in cottages and deck rooms, altho' since 2007 we've kept to a cottage. The cottages are clean, comfortable, well furnished and individually air conditioned. Equipment updating is constant. We've been able to peek into the deck rooms and they get the same treament.
The grounds and pool area are well kept and this year have been enhanced with a covered gazebo with barbeque. ideal for a family gathering.
Queen's Gate is an ideal home base for visiting local attractions and restaurants. If you need advice or a recommendation, you can count on Kathy and the staff to come up with good ones.
We'll keep coming back to Queen's Gate for just as long as we are able, and while a Spring visit is never a sure thing, it is impossible to imagine October without Queen's Gate.

We booked in for 3 nights but enjoyed it so much we delayed our return to the UK and stayed an extra night - wish it could have been longer!!!

The simple room had everything we needed and it was perfectly clean. The garden and pool were very well kept. We enjoyed eating out in the garden under the pavillion.

Having beach chairs, umbrellas and towels available meant we could walk just a few yards across to the beautiful beach and enjoy the day. An easy stroll up to the Beachhouse restaurant to enjoy a sundowner or to the restaurants in the central area. Made it a very relaxing break.

We would love to return and would not hesitate to recommend the resort. Thank you to all the staff who worked so hard and were so helpful.

We were part of the Family Union Extrodinaire and I agree that this is the perfect location for a family reunion. There were 53 of us including the babies and there was plenty of room for everyone. The Beach was just across the street (convenient for potty breaks for the little ones) and when the parents had had enough sun we brought the kids back to the pool. There was a good size play area for the kids to play freeze tag or just run the energy off. There is a laundry area if you like to pack light or clean up before you go home. We had lunch catered by a local BBQ place (Mr. Bonez) and the Gazebo was a perfect place for the gathering.

Our family rented the entire resort for a family reunion. The manager and staff bent over backwards to accommodate us and make each and every member feel welcome. They were as excited as we were to see everyone enjoying the resort. The new gazebo is glorious and provided a central congregating place for the group. The beach was lovely with snorkeling opportunities a few yards out. Imagine the excitement of a manatee joining the swim! I would recommend this resort and have been telling friends about the great experience we had here.

After vacationing on Anna Maria Island a few times at different resorts we decided to come back to Queens Gate Resort. This is one of our favorite staying places. We took the house this time with another couple. The accommodations was great. Room sizes was awesome. The staff was there to help in any way. Very nice private pool. Very clean property. The beach was very close. Walked to or took the free trolley for shopping or food. A great thank you to Kathy for making our stay another wonderful experience. Would definitely come back.

First trip to Anna Maria Island and we had a wonderful time. Queens Gate was very nice place right across from the beach. The location was great. We walked or took the shuttle every where. The staff was great and everything was kept very clean. Pool was very nice too. We would definitely go back.

I totally enjoyed the 5 days that I spent at the Queen's Gate Resort. I spent most of my time enjoying the resort and beach area. The weather was great and the accommodations were perfect. A special thanks to Kathy for making my stay a wonderful experience.
