“Wedding party”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2014

About 20 of us from my daughter's wedding party stayed here. We booked most of the rooms and the majority of the rooms were nicely renovated. The resort has a wonderful outdoor BBQ area with lots of seating and a great pool for the guests. The resort is quaint but a perfect size for our small wedding party. The reception was held in the BBQ area and was perfect.
Resort is located very close to the Beach Cafe, Publix, and other shops. Catching the trolley is just a short walk. Everyone loved it and hated to leave. Manager stopped by on a few occasions to make sure that everything was going smoothly. I really appreciated that personal touch. Thanks, Rick!!

Everyone was Very accommodating! This was a home away from home. The Brach is in your back yard and the pool in the front. I absolutely loved the gas grill area in front of the pool. This is a quiet Beautiful place to relax and take your family. We really enjoyed our stay and plan to go back soon.

We spent spent our anniversay weekend and enjoyed our stay and the ""non-party" setting of the hotel and the entire island. Unbelievably easy to check in (just follow Rick's simple instruction). Owners were not evasive but available if needed and we could walk out the door and be on the beach in 20 seconds. I do feel it is a little pricey but the customer service was above reproach.

Room Tip: If you want any beach view at all you will need to choose the rooms on the end. The beach views from...

I really enjoyed the anna maria island resort. My 49th birthday was such a serene and pleasant one. The staff was very helpful and friendly. An ideal location for a couples retreat. Next trip family!!

Room Tip: If couple definitely 1 bedroom only. corner room/2nd floor great to watch sunset going down.

Very relaxing and very convenient for walking and getting to where ever you need to go. Beautiful beach and centrally located. Very family or couple friendly. Many repeat guests which make it nice to meet new friends.

Just spent another wonderful week @ Anna Maria Island Beach Resort. Rick is a wonderful host-he always checks to see his guests arrive okay & if they need anything. Love the beach access & the heated pool. The common areas include an outdoor BBQ, kitchen prep sink area & nice chaise lounges & bar areas. There are several outdoor showers to rinse off the sand & beach towels are provided for the guests along with bathroom towels that can be exchanged when needed. There is a nice fire pit with comfy chairs but it was not working on this visit. In the past we have had smore's over the pit!!!! Love the location-close to everything & if cooking isn't your thing great food nearby. Kitchens in the rooms have just about any general item you might need for light food preparation. Don't expect a full stocked kitchen, but if there is ANYTHING you need Harold, Betty, (their sweet grand-daughter Ebony) Malachi, or Rick will get it for you. One way to help ensure your stay is great is to respect others & leave your place clean. Rick is always striving to improve the facility & your respect to the property & suggestions help him do so. We love AMIBR and are planning another visit later this year. We have introduced some friends to the resort as well & they are planning a visit also! We have met many nice guests that are repeat customers & we all feel the same! This is a great diamond in the rough & we look forward to many more visits in the future. It's laid back, quiet, not fancy but has everything you need for a special beach vacation. Thank you Rick & Skipper-we are so very glad we got lost on our 1st visit to Anna Maria island & stopped @ Skipper & Associates. If we hadn't we would have never found you!

My family loves Anna Maria Island Beach Resort. We visit twice a year and always stay in the beachfront room and it is always clean and well stocked. I'm a bit surprised at some of the other reviews stating otherwise. The rooms aren't super modern but they have a nice, down to earth, beachy feel. I don't go to sit in the room though, I go to enjoy the paradise that is outside - the beach! The beachside patio is very nice and large with plenty of seating, a nice fire pit, and you can see and hear the gulf or take a few steps right onto the beach. The pool area has a large cooking area with plenty of seating and the pool is always very clean. There is also a small patio off the bedroom that is perfect for your morning coffee. The resort is located within walking distance to Publix and several other shops. We love it - it's fabulous. Looking forward to our next visit.
