First time my wife and I have stayed here and on Anna Maria Island. We rented unit number four which is a one bedroom with a Gulf facing view. Location of this place is excellent. It is right next to the public beach with all of its facilities such as picnic tables, playground, restaurant, volleyball, and a very clean well-kept...

Stayed for 4 days in Oct. with my husband. The unit we had was old, small, a one bedroom which had a king bed, a small closet, a bedside chest of drawers, and another chest. No bedside lamp, but the bedroom did have a ceiling fan. The bathroom had a tub and shower, plenty of washcloths and towels, but no...

I have been to this resort 5 times and stayed in4 different rooms. The location couldn't be any better. It has always been my favorite vacation spot every year, but the last 3 trips here has not been the same. The place has not been taken care of and maintained. They say new beds but that is not the case....

First, I want to say that Jim (onsite staff member) was very helpful and accommodating. We also met Rick and felt that he was doing a good job of overseeing the resort, and he was easy to work with during the reservation process. The exterior of the building and the pool/patio areas were nice. However, be advised that some of...

During peak summer season, if want to be more secluded you may want to be on the north end of the Island, that I can agree. The Resort has couple thousand guest a year, most are very happy with the Resort, some are looking for a more of a Marriott style of place, therefore might be dissatisfied. A vast majority...

Had a great stay. Very clean; staff very accommodating; being so close to the beach was a plus; Would only recommend upgrading the mattress, it being worn down and a bit uncomfortable, but definitely would not keep us from coming back. We look forward to our next visit.

The place is run down and dirty. I asked for the floors to be recleaned and grime removed from top microwave and kitchen ceiling. Management is responsive to requests but that is not a replacement for a run-down facility. The place needs to be renovated to justify the current rates.

We check our prices with are competition and are prices are very reasonable given our location.

Wide open beach with room for everybody. Parking spaces are hard to find between 10 and 4. Very good food service... all three meals. Breakfast pancake special and "yummy" sandwich and waffles are great. Ladies at the service window are friendly, helpful and patient. Servers are prompt and friendly. good drink specials at the outdoor bar.

The place was basically the same as always but they have put the price of fish and chips up from $9.99 to $11.99 you get a much better fish and chip meal at Oshucks on Cortez. They have reclaimed the beach and now its twice as far to the water
