Travelers' Choice
The Bon-Aire Resort in beautiful St. Pete Beach, Florida is the ideal family vacation spot. The Bon Aire is a welcome alternative to mainstream hotels and motels, this boutique hotel, located directly on Saint Pete Beach, has that Florida 50’s-style charm and character that pulls you away from today’s hectic lifestyles. The Bon-Aire is located directly on the Gulf of Mexico with 400 feet of beachfront property on one of the most beautiful beaches in Florida. Our Tiki Bar, Sandbar Bill’s Bar and Grille, a local favorite, offers the best cheeseburger and “Rum Runner” on the beach. Every beach deserves a great hotel, come as a guest and leave as a friend!

We were asked to vacate a grill. One of two grills with nobody waiting. The owner “Karen” told me herself that we weren’t using them and needed to leave. I can only assume it was for the bridal party there. They were however self catering. There food as well as mine smelled great. We were actively using the grill much to her surprise but she wouldn’t back down. Karen doesn’t care about the “little family”. Beware that she doesn’t care about you personally or your family.

Response from Catherine Grace, General Manager at Bon Aire Resort
Responded May 13, 2021
Joshua Johnson, What happened the other night was based on your inability to practice common courtesy with our amenities as well as your disrespect towards my property and my staff. You had not only taken up the entire (two) grill area, but you had taken an 8 person table and the lounge area nearby. I personally saw the mess that you left and that the entire area you were no longer using had your stuff all over it. When our maintenance man asked you to move your things, you replied with "I am using it to hold my stuff." The Bon-Aire has 81 rooms on property with everyone paying to use the amenities. The majority of our guests are aware of that fact and treat other guests and our staff with respect. Thank you for giving us the chance to respond to your 1 star reviews on both Trip Advisor and Google, because it shows that we do not tolerate behavior like yours this past weekend. We are trying to create and maintain an environment that is conscientious and respectful to all staff and guests at the Bon-Aire. Although you want to chalk me up to be a "Karen," my name is Cathy, and I take a lot of pride in my business.

My cousin and I went here for couple nights and what a great place! It was clean the location was perfect and sandbar bills on the beach was perfect too! The room was very clean, available right on time and had everything they promised.. coffee maker microwave and mini fridge all worked and were very clean. The bathroom was beautiful and looked to be recently updated. They have 2 pools but we spent all of our time on the beach. The beach was clean and big and not crowded at all which was nice. Sandbar bills makes a good Bloody Mary thanks to Mark the bartender he remembered my drinks and what I ate the day before! I would highly recommend the veggie kabob, you can’t get it without chicken but I just ate everything except chicken and cheese and sour cream, I made a huge salad of all the veggies and it was really awesome! And the hotel price was less than all of the other hotels in area, which was a bonus ! I will definitely recommend this hotel to everyone!

Bon Aire Resort is the best! We gathered here to honor my brother who loves this place. Most beautiful beach! Rooms are very clean, pools are spotless, the grounds are so beautiful. You can tell the family who has owned this since it’s beginning takes great pride in their hotel. Love staying here and will always come back! ❤️

Last minute getaway for Labor Day Weekend . . . another wonderful stay at the Bon Aire Resort!! Everything was spectacular as usual. The rooms are renovated and sparkling clean. Kudos to the cleaning staff!! The grounds are meticulously kept and just breath taking and beyond beautiful!! Both pools are well kept. Plenty of tables with chairs and loungers both by the pool and on the beach. Such a great location on SPB. Restaurants and grocery store/drug store within walking distance. Family owned and operated with members of the family there daily to assist and help out wherever needed. There are not enough accolades to describe Sand Bar Bill's beachfront bar and grill. THE BEST food and drinks on the beach. BIG shout out to Matt and Mark who are fantastic bartenders. Can not wait til March for Spring Break when we are back again!! Thanks for everything.
