“A Slice of Heaven-Magical Beach Wedding and Sunsets are incredible!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2009

Was our 2nd time to Anna Maria Island. We stayed at Cedar Cove Resort in the "Bamboo Suite." It was spacious, quaint, clean one bdrm w/a large deck that faced the ocean. The bed was so comfortable. At sunset my husband and I got married on the beach at the resort...It was truly magical and I will never forget October 9, 2009. Eric Cairn the Innkeeper was by far the best host and made sure that my husband and I did not want for anything. Eric performed our wedding ceremony and his sermon was beautiful. There wasn't a dry eye on the beach. Four locals who live in Bradenton, said it was the classiest, most beautiful ceremony they had witnessed on A.M.I-Eric is a class act and we have definately made a friend for life!!!! We will be going back to Cedar Cove, our family and friends will go back to Cedar Cove and I highly recommend this quaint little slice of heaven. (Oh, the private beach was nice also, there were always plenty of beach chairs and nice that you did not have to pay to use them daily!!! There was also hammocks and a couple of Chiki Huts that seats lots of people) Awh, I am sad and want to hop the next plane back right now!!! : )

As a visitor to Florida and Anna Maria Island for nearly 20 years this wasn't my usual place of stay. However we were to find that my usual hotel had been turned into some poor excuse for "resort" we decided to look elsewhere. Not far on the same road we found the Cedar Cove.

We stayed in the Starfish room which did not have a sea view or baclony, but the room was exceptional clean and modern with a galley type kitchen and flat screen tv. Bedding was crisp and clean, bathroom modern and a powerfull shower, we couldn't have wanted more. Our contact was with Eric who was extremely helpfull and polite (only later did I find he's an Englishman by birth), house rules were explained to us. We had very little contact with the staff but this was our own choice. The private section of the beach is superb and beach toys are readily available as are barbeques.

Upon checkout Eric was as polite as ever and we found Cedar Cove to be great value and far better then my usual old haunt! I will return and Cedar Cove will be my new place of stay on Anna Maria Island!

It was a lovely place to stay, clean, quiet. We saw dolphans and found shells. We had a close encounter with stingrays- 3 of them, swimming in our direction. The beach was very clean. We had a good time.

Just returned from a wonderful weekend at Cedar Cove Resort. Was looking for a casual, quiet place to stay for the weekend. Cedar Cove was perfect and just what we were looking for. The location on Holmes Beach on Anna Maria Island was wonderful. Could not get closer to the water. My husband and two children stayed in the Coconut Suite, a gulf front one bedroom condo. Size was perfect. View was amazing. Very comfortable. Neat and clean. Great to have a full kitchen. We ate breakfast and lunch in and caught the free Island Trolley to head out for dinner in the evening. It was wondeful to walk down the stairs and step right into the sand. Jeff and Eric, the managers were extremely friendly and were available for anything we needed. It's nice to be in a place where the owners take so much pride in their resort. Would highly recommend this resort!

Our stay at Cedar Cove Resort was a wonderful experience. This charming 18 unit resort is touted as a bit of "Old World Florida" and certainly lived up to its reputation. The Innkeepers Eric and Jeff were gracious hosts and called us by name when we saw them or called for something we needed. Very impressive. We stayed in the Palm Penthouse suite, the best room in the resort. It was great. Anna Maria Island is a quaint little island, no chain restaurants, all local restaurants and bars (great food)!. There is even a free trolley to take you anywhere you want to go on the island. We fell in love with the island and Cedar Cove Resort.

Right on the beautiful private beach, Cedar Cove is just a very clean and quaint place to stay. We enjoyed all the conviences of home. We have experienced a romantic weekend for two, and the second visit we enjoyed bringing Grandma and our 10 year old. The rates were reasonable and the staff went the extra mile to make us feel welcome and comfortable and were quite accomadating to our particular needs. We give them an A+! You would be glad you went if you get the chance to get away and for us, there is no other place to stay in Holmes Beach but the Cedar Cove Resort!

We just love this Resort and I am sure you will to. If your visiting Anna Maria Island this is a must. We new we were in good hands when we read their sign the first time we stayed there. Voted the #1 Resort on the Island and I can see why, what service outstanding.

We have stayed there on many occasions and can’t seem to get enough. We live in Clearwater and it’s just a hop skip and a jump for us. It’s a very tropical Resort and they make you feel as if you’re in the Caribbean. The rooms are immaculate and they had a wonderful selection of soaps and shampoos in the bathroom and most amazing bed and bedding ever. When our heads hit there pillows after a day on the beach its off to dream land in seconds.

The front desk people were very nice and check-in was quick. Our Cottage had wireless, which was great. The room was nicely decorated with a flowered theme, the king room was spacious with couch and a full kitchen, microwave, fridge, sink and flat screen TV. Many of our friends have wound up staying there also. There were also plenty of restaurants in the area to visit and a major food store just down the street

We love this hotel and would highly recommend it to anyone visiting the area.

Be back next month
