This is truly a gem. A place that has everything one could want for in a Florida vacation, yet is so different from most other accommodations one finds in this State. A great combination of clean, modern furnishings, yet with an old world feel. If you are tired of grungy, but also of sterile luxurious, this is the place for you. Very helpful staff. Walking /biking distance to some of the best beachside restaurants. This island, with its smart regulations and community feel, is a real find.

We stayed here from the Saturday before Thanksgiving to the Saturday after Thanksgiving, and we had a great time. We stayed in the Palm Court south building (on the first floor) and our room had plenty of space for a family of 5. The pool was great (nice and warm) and the beach was perfect. Lots of nice restaurants in the area (try taking the free trolley). Two things we wish could change for our next visit....room service for everyone, even once a week if your staying for the whole week would be fine. That and better wireless internet, it didn't work when we got there but they fixed after we complained three times about it. Also, the mattresses were "OK", but they should be replaced soon (kind of lumpy).

We recently spent two nights a the Tortuga Inn celebrating my husband's birthday, and we wished we could have spent two more nights! This was our first stay at the Tortuga, and we were very pleased. The room (a gulf front studio) was quite spacious and well-appointed with a kitchenette and a luxury bath. It didn't feel like a hotel/motel - it felt like we had our own lovely little apartment directly across the street from the beach. The location is good - away from the hustle and bustle, yet just a short walk to Bradenton Beach shops and restaurants. The room was very clean, and the only criticism we had was that the carpet is rather worn. When we checked out, we were greeted and thanked by friendly staff and by the owner, who wanted to know whether we had enjoyed our stay. We have recommended the Tortuga to friends and family members who visit us in Florida, and some of our family members are staying at the Tortuga next month. We are looking forward to our next stay at the Tortuga - our 20th wedding anniversary in April. My husband and I highly recommend this property.

We have been to Anna Maria many times, but this was our first stay at Tortuga. It was a wonderful experience and we have found our "home away from home" when visiting the gulf coast. We stayed in the palm court in a 2 bedroom apartment. The rooms were immaculately clean and pleasantly furnished. We found the staff to be cheerful and helpful. The private gulf beach was just steps away and umbrellas, lounge chairs and towels were provided.
I have only good things to say about the Tortuga Inn. We have already made our reservations for next year and next year we will be trying accomodations in their garden building. Highly reccomend

As other guests have remarked, there are a few stains on the carpet (maybe wine). Otherwise the Gulfview efficiencies are GREAT. Clean, huge bathroom, plenty of storage, walk-in closet and comfortable. The rooms are directly across from the beach with sea oat covered dunes and beautiful white sand. There are several places to eat(and drink) within walking distance. (The Beach House is great.)
Rental scooters or bicycles were just next door and the Trolley stop is at the front entrance. For cycling head south. Take the free trolley and see the whole island from tip to tip. We will stay at the Tortuga again soon, I hope.

We just returned from our third stay at Tortuga Inn. We first found the inn by searching "in room jacuzzi on Ann Maria Island" Up it popped. We stay in apt. 256. The apt. is large and serene with a full wall of windows overlooking the Intra-coastal Waterway. The apt. has a beautiful full kitchen, huge bed- sitting room with an inviting-comfy king size bed. The bath has a HUGE two head shower , two person jacuzzi, dual sinks and bidet. The compund is between the intra-coastal waterway and the beach[ which is beautiful an uncrowded]. In reviewing the hotel recently, I rated most things "as expected" instead of excedes expectations because every thing is always perfect...always! The location, virtually on charming, quaint Anna Maria Is. is a huge plus for us...gorgeous sand ..blue water..great restarants..lots to do or do NOTHING! The best part...lying in bed and looking accross the water at the lights and watching the sun come up in the peace and quiet..Oh! and I forgot the semi-private outdoor jacuzzi over-looking the inter-coastal waterway...Paradise...The rates are reasonable and we plan a return trip in January.

My daughters wedding was at the Sandbar Restaurant on Anna Maria Island in Oct 2009 and we stayed along with the wedding party and many guests at the Tortuga Inn. I had visisted the area several times prior and the Tortuga was the one we picked after checking out several other hotels. Tim at the desk was one of the reasons. He made suggestions on our accommodations, let us see each type of room available, and offered a wedding discount. The rooms are beautifully decorated, spacious, extremely clean and the staff, both office and house keeping, were very efficient and friendly. The pool areas were also very clean and the water was beautiful. Cell phone reception on the island is not great but the hotel offers free local and long distance calling for free. Parking for our rooms were a garage under the rooms and was perfect. We did have a few complain that the matttresses were hard but other than that, everything was great. We even fished off the dock in back and saw Manatees, Dolphins and many kinds of fish and bird life. I coud go on and on! Thank you Tortuga Inn for helping to make my daughters wedding the one she dreamed about!!
