My wife, son and I went for a one-night retreat. The outside of the hotel says "classic 1950's", which blends nicely with Anna Maria's "Old Florida" style. The front desk was extremely friendly and extremely knowledgable about Anna Maria Island. Sebastian was very accommodating, especially with our request for an extra hour for checkout. The rooms were spic and span clean, and we really liked the tile floors - much cleaner than a carpet. The studio had a nice breakfast table and an oven and range for cooking. They even had pots, pans, plates, silverware and cups! Every room in the hotel has a great view of the pool and the beautiful gulf waters. The pool featured a slip-free deck, which was very nice, especially for a family with a young child. There were also picnic tables in multiple places on the property. The beach was just steps away, and it was fantastic. Coffee and cookies in the hotel lobby are a nice touch. We highly recommend this hotel for a getaway to the beautiful Anna Maria Island. We have already recommended this hotel to two friends, and one of them has already booked a weekend. Thanks for a great time Blue Water! We will be back!
