We enjoyed our weekend stay at BBR. It is so charming to say the least. Great location. Great layout of the Bungalows. We stayed in "Pineapple" Bungalow #111. It was very clean cozy and comfortable.
We Honeymooned in St. Maarten 22 years ago and this little bungalow reminded us of the bungalow we had there. Since, then a hurricane took out the resort we had Honeymooned at. Often, we've wished we could go back, but of course we can't. But, our Little "Pineapple" Bungalow #111 comes close, really close. We will be returning I hope for many, many more weekend getaways. Thank you, to the owner Gayle.

I knew nothing about Bradenton Beach and just decided to book a trip after having researched hotels. I came upon this place and I am so glad I did! The rooms are so cute and cozy! Even though we were not on one of the bungalows directly on the beach, we still could see the water from our place. It takes seconds to walk to the beach from the rooms. It was relaxing, it was fun. The perfect place to have a drink and watch the sun set! The owner, Gayle, was lovely and helpful.

Bungalow beach resort was fantastic, it was paradise found, you are approx 30 steps and your toes are in the ocean, the owner gayle was very friendly, welcoming and helpful, anna marie island is a real gem, The sandbare, and the Beach house are great restaurant , book your table for 7.30 and watch the sunset, it is amazing, get the free trolley that takes you all over the island but remeber to tell the driver where you want to get off, when you go onto the beach from the bungalow turn left walk along the shore for about 5 mins and you will come to a young guy who hires jet skies and canoes, he is very nice, and very friendly.
I wood recommend the bungalow beach to all my friends and family, it is well equipped, clean, fantastic location and fabulous views of the ocean, it feels like you have gone to stay with a favourite aunt.
I will return to anna marie island and god willing renew my wedding vows, the place is heaven on earth.

Anna Maria is a beautiful, relaxing, and all around great get away location. I searched reviews on the various hotels, then went several times up and down the island looking at various places before deciding on one for a nice romantic day for two. Bungalow was certainly it. The rooms are light, comfortable, and clean. The location can't be beat. Overall I'd say this is one of the top places to stay on the island as far as I can tell.

We went for our first time to Anna Maria Island and it was absolutely beautiful. When we checked into the Bungalow Beach Resort the staff was very friendly and made us feel so welcome. We were way too early to check in but they immediately offered us a room while we waited for our room to be done. They also gave us so much information about the Island, restaurant and recreational stuff. We were in bungalow 104 and it was very nice and clean. The front porch faces the beach which is perfect to see the beautiful sunset. Mr. Bone has the best BBQ and Sandbar is perfect for a sunset dinner. We can't wait to go back next year. Thank you Bungalow Beach Resort we had a wonderful 13 year anniversary there!
