“A little bit of Paradise”
Reviewed February 24, 2013

Last year we stayed for two nights and realized we had discovered a "Jewel". We returned this year and stayed for a week. This time we stayed in the Tortuga Garden 1 bedroom with a partial view of the Bay. We could watch the sun rise from our screened porch and then walk across the street in the evening to watch the sun set over the Gulf. The rooms are immaculate and I would love to have a kitchen as nice as the one we had there. The staff is so friendly and be sure and ask them for recommendations for good places to eat. You will not be disappointed if you chose to stay at Tortuga Beach. We can't wait to return next year!

Room Tip: All rooms were clean and inviting. If you want a larger area that has a full kitchen I would recomm...

We made this vacation spot selection mainly based on the fact that it was "pet friendly." We didn't want to leave our aging dog, Kira, behind. We were pleasantly surprised first of all by the friendly welcome we received and then by the wonderful accommodations. Our "deluxe garden apartment" was spacious, very clean and well supplied. The maid service was wonderful. We have friends in the area so we are familiar with the attractions and places to go (and there are plenty). The beach is beautiful and we enjoyed the fact that the premises had two swimming pools - one for swim and sun, the other, a little more private and perfect for swimming laps. Kira enjoyed her stay also. The only drawback is there is not much area for walking the dog and pets aren't allowed on the beach.

Room Tip: Our second room on the bay side was very quiet.

We had the opportunity to stay at the Tortuga Inn in January 2013. We rented an gulf front studio apartment. The Inn was very well maintained, and clean. We choose not to use room service but did receive a new supply of towels and toiletries left on our front veranda each day. The staff was very helpful with information about the area. Our view from the front veranda to the gulf was very nice. Walking across the street to the beach allowed us to spend each night enjoying the gorgeous sunset. We would recommend this inn and hope to stay again.

Room Tip: If you fish and want to cook your catch, I suggest renting an apartment with a full kitchen.

We recently stayed at Tortuga Resort and took advantage of the one free night offer. We stayed in the Palm Court South studio on the first floor, with a king bed and nice patio outside. Has all you need for a several day stay. The kitchen and fridge gives the option to eat in. The room was well cleaned daily, and the bathroom and shower were roomy and clean as well. The bed was large, but the mattress was too firm for our liking.The location is across Gulf Drive from the beach, and the available beach umbrellas and chairs are great. We were a short drive to family in Bradenton. The Tortuga reservation staff is great. We plan to return.

Room Tip: Palm Court North rooms get morning sun.

This charming hideaway on delightful Ana Maria Island is a treasure! It evokes the feel of old Florida with its shaded walkways and exceptional accommodations. The staff were most welcoming and informative. I had the pleasure of staying in room 155 and I would never go to another! It is cozy, well appointed and has a lovely kitchen, plus it looks out over the bay. The icing on the cake is the large outdoor jacuzzi next to the water that was at our disposal. It is shared with only one other room and is not available to anyone else. It is such a romantic spot for a few days of heaven!

We stayed in a one bedroom on the bay, my husband wanted to fish this weekend (Martin Luther King weekend) the room view was amazing it was like we were on a cruise ship when you looked out the huge padio window. The bathroom was large and with a Spa tube which my husband loved, we were able to cook our breakfast and dinner the Publix is right down the street. We went fishing twice a day and caught nice size Sheep Head I caught more than husband and I'm not a fisherman (lol) it was so much fun people would come up while we were fishig and inquire about the fish. We did our fishing on the hotel Pier. The front desk was amazing and accommodating, our room exceptional clean and comfortable. We will stay at this resort in March I have booked 3 rooms my daughter is getting married on Anna Marie island and the Wedding Party is staying at this Resort. The price was reasonable for beach property. Staff was very friendly and someone was always outside cleaning.

Room Tip: Bay room was the best but this weekend the entire resort was quiet.

We stayed in the hotel type room. This is our second time at the Tortuga Inn and each time the staff at the front desk have been very helpful and friendly. Our room both times has been clean and very comfortable. The free shuttle that you can pick up out front is very easy and convenient. The beach is great for long walks in either direction. We have found the Tortuga Inn to be quite and easy for a relaxing stay. We will be back again next year.

Room Tip: The hotel rooms on the second floor have smaller outdoor space than the same room on the first floor...
