Sarasota, fl
Reviewed November 29, 2015

The major asset is the location (on the water & nice grounds). Very quiet. While the physical structure is well kept, the furnishings/decor is drab and minimal. Our studio unit was not properly stocked and the TV (football season) was not functional .... a new one was provided, but barely larger than a computer screen.

Dear Philip P, Thank you for staying with us and writing a review on TripAdvisor. I apologize for the broken TV, which we had to replace with a smaller TV until the warranty repair had been finalized. I will forward your comments to our owners and, again, thank you for your feedback. Sincerely, Sebastian Mueller Manager

The hotel is in a great location and only blocks away from shopping and restaurants. How could I not mention it's right on the beach! Our room was steps away to the beach and on the main floor. It had a nice patio seating area right out of the large sliding glass doors with a breathtaking view of the tropical...

Dear crystalg007, Thank you very much for your detailed review. I am glad that you enjoyed your stay, even though our landscaping is getting a fresh look at the moment. It will look even better after it is all done! I will forward your comment about more "colorful artwork" to our owners, thank you for the recommendation. Unfortunately, our pool...

Just came back from a week stay in room 212 at the Blue Water Beach Club. It is always very scary picking a place to stay via the internet, but we took our chances. Speaking from a family that has traveled to places such as Jamaica, Grand Cayman and many places in Mexico, this is by far our favorite place...

My husband and I stayed three nights here and we can't wait to go back! The photos on the internet do not do it justice. We stayed in room 225 and we had a beautiful ocean view.

At Bradenton Beach to attend a wedding and booked a room at Blue Water Beach Club based on previous Trip Advisor reviews and a couple of delightful phone conversations with one of the front office staff, Anna May.

We loved this place! It was sparkling clean, right on the beach and the staff could not have been nicer! We only stayed 3 nights and did not want to leave! The only thing I wish was that we could bring our little Pom, since I missed him a lot.
