Calgary, Canada141 contributions95 helpful votes
Upon checkin, there was a bit of a mix up with our room. It was quickly remediated. It was a great size room...condo size with 2 queen beds in one room and a king in the other. Full kitchen with a washer/dryer (never saw any laundry detergent; which most hotels provide a one or 2 load box?), So good thing I had prepared before arrival. Nice balcony with a couple of chairs. As per other reviews, our biggest issue was with housekeeping, as we had arranged to have our room cleaned before noon each day. We knew going in, from other posts that this may be an issue both at reception and housekeeping. Most days we had to call down for service again late in the day. When they did come, they always failed to leave toiletries, and almost felt like they were rushed and it was a bother. Maintenance had to come to our room, and he seemed to be one of the top employees at this hotel! I wouldn't exactly call this a resort, as it is a basic pool, not "resort style". The check-in desk really is only open from 9:00 to 9:00 each day, as stated in other reviews. I'm not sure what happens if you check out or check in after these times. It is next to the marina, where we saw manatees hanging out quite often. Right beside the pool area, the marina does give off an unpleasant smell, not sure who's responsibility that is to take care of it. It is about a 5-minute walk to the beach, and they sometimes have chairs and umbrellas available to take with you, but it's a first come first serve option. We did utilize a beach service called mybeachconcierge.com, which you may want to try out as well. The restaurant was very tasty for breakfast and reasonably priced, and they did offer breakfast coupons for being a platinum member, which was a surprise. The coupons include the meal, but no drinks. We did not try any of the other food, but I'm sure it is tasty. If you want a nice room and aren't fussy about the service then give the Waterline a try. We couldn't see staying a week or longer as would get boring, but for a shorter vacay it's a good option.

Dear PrincessandaFrog, Thank you for taking the tome to write this review and for your honest feedback! We do have complimentary laundry detergent upon request but for our guest convenience we could place it in the rooms. Great suggestion! Our number one priority is providing excellent service, and we are sad we fell short of your expectations. On behalf of our team I apologize for all the hassle with housekeeping. We understand some guest enjoy the privacy of housekeeping on request, but it’s not everyone’s preference. With this said, we are happy you could still enjoy yummy breakfast and relax in beautiful Anna Maria Island. We hope that if your travels bring you back to this area, you choose to stay with us again. Kindly, Giselle Brock

Hotel's Favorite
We stayed four nights here in late June into early July. From the time we booked our reservation to the day we left, it was a great experience. Giselle reached out to us right after we booked our stay to see what they could do to better our experience while with the. We had multiple email exchanges as she gave us restaurant choices, things to do and possible transportation to help us get around. We had concern that with a very late checkin that it might cause problems. We came in very late 1:30 AM. There was a sign to call their overnight manager. She arrived in just a few minutes after my call. Their team went the extra mile as we were celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary. To our surprise they had left a small gift with anniversary wishes in our kitchen the first day. Thank you! The building and rooms are very clean and for the most part in good condition. The doors into the rooms have taking a little beating (nothing that we keep us from coming back) due to luggage carts hitting the doors. We hope to make it back to AMI and would plan to stay again.

Definitely not worth the money. A lot of money for dirty floors and no water pressure. Staff not always at desk. Complained about water pressure on 1st day and someone came to check it out on our last day. Somehow AAA awarded them top housekeeping. Ours floors where filthy. Mariott is going downhill.

Dear Monairo1019, I wanted to reach out and apologize on behalf of our team. Dirty floors and low water pressure is not our normal, and below our standards. Our number one priority is providing excellent service for the comfort of our guests. With the slow response time from our front desk we have fallen below your expectations and ours. We would love the opportunity to make it right for your family. Please reach out to me directly at gbrock@mainsailhotels.com so we can further discuss. Kindly, Giselle Brock

We visited as a family and stayed in a 2 bed property. The style and decor was beautiful, well maintained, spotlessly clean and classic beach style. It had a lovely outdoor pool which the kids loved. There was a small gym although we didn’t use it. The propert is right on the marina. It is on a relatively busy main road which is a drawback but is a 5 min walk to a stunning beach, 2 mins drive to supermarkets and the beach on Anna Maria pier is well worth a visit with its crystal clear waters and quaint restaurants and ice cream parlours. There are still some restrictions due to covid but nothing that really interferes with enjoyment. We’ve stayed in a few hotels over the last couple of weeks during our Florida trip and whilst not perfect, this is our favourite. Very enjoyable and would visit the island and hotel again for total relaxation.

We had a wonderful family vacation to Anna Maria Island and cannot speak highly enough of the Waterline. The hotel itself is lovely. Directly on the marina, the views cannot be beat. We loved drinking our coffee on the balcony each morning and watching the birds and boats begin to come to life in the marina. The rooms are spacious and well appointed. We were impressed especially with how well supplied the kitchen is. Finally, we were impressed with the warmth and responsiveness of the staff. From check in, to housekeeping, to assistance with anything we needed while on the property, each staff member was warm, pleasant and eager to help. Of particular note was Cole (who works at the front desk) who went out of his way to assist my elderly in-laws as well as Jessica (also at front desk). We also had a wonderful birthday dinner at the Chateau Anna Maria restaurant inside the hotel. The food is pricey, but was the best meal we had on the island.

I cannot recommend this place more highly. We stayed in a 2 bed apartment with a view of the marina and beyond . The rooms were spacious and very comfortable with a very well equipped kitchen. I swam in the pool every morning before breakfast . Great location for the beaches and everything on the island . The Chateau Anna Maria restaurant is amazing . It is separately owned but within the complex. We had an amazing brunch every day. The dinner menu was superb too. Not cheap but easily the best restaurant on the island . We had an amazing 10 days !!

Let me start by saying that I never leave reviews unless something is extremely favorable or a HORRIBLE experience. This one falls squarely into the latter and was the worst hotel experience of my life that includes Motel 6s in the 70s. I will start by saying that for $350 per night, the experience should be nothing less than 5 stars. I would not even give 1 star to this place but had to to write this review. When I arrived, there was no one at the desk and it took 15 min for someone to get there. After checking in, my first 2 keys did not work and i finally got in to room on 3rd trip up. I immediately noticed that the TV did not work and walked back down (they never answered phone) and even though the guy was rude about it, he told me he would get fixed. When I got home that night, the TV still didn't work and no one was at desk or answer phone. The next morning, the coffee make didn't work and at that point I was done and went down to check out. No one at desk again so I waited about 10 min so I could get a copy of my bill and let them know of my terrible experience. The guy at the desk could care no less about my bad experience and took no initiative to try to resolve anything. In addition, the printer was not working so I could not get me receipt and he promised to email it to me. Needless to say, I never got email and there was no record of my stay on Marriott.com. The only thing they did correctly was to bill my credit card. Since then I have tried calling resort at least 8 times and no one ever answered their phone. Finally, I called Marriott directly and let them know but am unable to review on their site as there is no record of me staying there or reward points given. AVOID THIS RESORT AT ALL COSTS! It is not worth $100 per night much less $350!

We went to Tampa to attend a football game and decided to make it a long weekend in Holmes Beach. We traveled with our kids and appreciated all the space this hotel offers. Our hotel room was more like a condo/apartment. It included two bedrooms with a full kitchen and even a washer & dryer (front desk gave us pods). From enjoying coffee on the large balcony to afternoon swims in the pool to a quick walk to the beach, this was a great experience for the entire family. Has a very nice restaurant on property and is located to walkable restaurants and water activities. There's also a Publix a few minutes away. Flip Flops offers a sunset cruise that took off from the hotel grounds. Vinny's Italian Kitchen is across the street and has the best pizza and Rome style Italian food to go. Would stay here again.

We just had our second stay at Waterline Marina Resort and would gladly stay again. The accommodations are lovely, clean and beautifully appointed. Cole and Zee (spelling?) were the only two people we dealt with on the desk and they were both professional, helpful and very pleasant. And the staff working around the property always had a smile and a nice word. The only issue we had was that the couch and chairs in the living area are rather straight backed and were not very comfortable for any length of time. Thank you all.
