We have been here before and enjoyed the place. We had been here about four and a half years ago. Great place for a family, has all the things you expect in your apartment. Easy to walk in the beach, have somebody to check when there are minor problems in the apartment.

Accommodation was luxury and beds were so comfortable. Staff were lovely and location right on a white sand beach was just heavenly. Saw pods of dolphins and manatees and have never had such an amazing time abroad. Thank you so much for our perfect stay xxx

Spent a lovely week here - great place to relax and unwind, beach right by the room, didn't need to use the pool facilities. Rooms were decorated to a high standard and had all the facilities we needed, plus complimentary tea and coffee and toiletries. Also was good having a large electronic safe in the room. The staff were cheerful... More

Our Townhouse was perfect for our family of 8. Spacious, clean and well appointed. Although it didn't have a beach view, we were only a few steps away from the stunning white sands and crystal clear water of the Gulf. Amazing wildlife (many different birds, sea turtles, fish and dolphins) and lovely, relaxing surroundings made for a great 4 day... More

Just wow! Our three bed apartment (1A) opened out almost directly on to the beach where turtles were laying their eggs. The spacious apartment is brilliantly well appointed with every possible kitchen gadget. The beds are comfortable and the aircon as fierce as you could wish for in the hot Floridian summer. We hardly saw any staff throughout our week... More

Mainsail Beach Inn was PERFECT! Other than the fact that the beach is right outside the front doors, the pool is so comfortably warm (but not too warm), the Hot tub was great and there was enough room for me and my friends. Amy was the sweetest! We will be coming back for sure!

We had a lovely week at the Mainsail Inn! Our unit was the three bedroom beachfront - the view could not have been better. The staff was super friendly and very attentive.

Just spent a lovely 7 days at Mainsail - stayed at 2 bedroom beach fronted apartment on the 1st floor and it was perfect for a family of four (both bedrooms have double beds so girls shared a bed which was not a problem). High quality and the location is perfect. Would love to stay again!!
