We've been to Anna Maria Island many times but this was our first time staying at the Tropic Isle Beach Resort. It was everything we hoped for and more. Very clean and cozy. It was too cool to swim (even though the pool is heated) but looked very inviting. We especially like it also because it is pet friendly so our little dog "Scooter" can join us on vacation! It is also very convenient to all the places we like to frequent when we are there. We will definately be back!
