It's hard to find a really nice RV resort right on the beach, and Holiday Cove isn't right on the beach either but it's very close - an easy bike ride over the Cortez Bridge and you are there. The sites are beautiful, and nicely landscaped. Cable TV and Internet are included. The pool is heated and very clean. All the amenities are spotless. The bathrooms are lovely. Really there is nothing negative to say about this place. Ask for a spot that's not on the road - we had number 95 which seems to be used for transient bookings. The only slightly surprising part was the price - $95 a night with the AAA discount. That's a bit more than I thought it would be but for a few days no big deal. You pay more to be near the beach, and a bit more for a really nice spot. We would definitely go back. And at that price there should be spots available because not everyone wants to pay that much. Right?
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Holiday Cove is perfectly located in Cortez, a small fishing village just west and a bit south of Bradenton. The resort is conveniently located on Cortez Road, just 3/4 mile to the white sands of Bradenton Beach. And our on-site marina is just a 1/4 mile by canal to Sarasota Bay. Mid-winter temperatures average in the low to mid-70s during the day and in the 60s into the evening. The world renown vacation playgrounds of Sarasota, Longboat Key, and Anna Maria Island are at your doorstep. And restaurants, shops, fishing charters, golf courses, theaters, flea markets, and many other recreational activities are either within walking distance or just a short drive. ... more less
