Mainsail Beach Inn
Ranked #3 of 15 Hotels in Holmes Beach
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 4, 2010

I have been at Mainsail two times and I am already booking my 3rd trip - this time to take my family. Anna Maria Island is one of my favorite places to be and this new resort is so WOW that I want to just move right in. The condos are huge, the furniture and furnishings are high-end sea side style. The full kitchen is just great and the views are to die for! This resort looks like something out of a "Coastal Living" magazine. it is worth every single penny!

BTW The Beach Bistro next door is a 5 star and has the best wine selection on the island.

What a beautiful inn - so tastefully done, with amazing details throughout. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful, what a fabulous home away from home! Our children ages 9,9 and 8 loved the pool and the beach - there was never a dull moment. The kitchen was perfectly stocked, with every high end amenity you could possibly need for gourmet dinners and specialty cocktails. Soooo relaxing - I can still hear the waves the lapping the shore, just as I could from our room at the Inn! We can't wait to return, and bring several families with us!

The location is perfect, the management is very pleasant. Top quality furnishings/decor. The beds were as good as home if not better. The pool is clean and inviting. If you haven't been to this island..they have some of the nicest beaches! Absolutely worth the extra money!

Traveled to Mainsail Beach Inn in March for Spring Break with two teenage boys and two 11 year old girls. The condo was fabulous with beautiful furnishings and we had a wonderful patio outside both the master bedroom and the den area. It was private and very easily accessible from both the beach and the pool. Kitchen was very well equipped, but as a party of 6 we did come up short on plates and utensils occassionally when we cooked in. The staff was fabulous and the maid cleaning every other day made it more like a hotel than a condo rental. WE would highly recommend this property to any one looking for a vacation on Ana Maria Island. The beach was fabulous and we were close to all at this hotel.

There is quality about this place. Very relaxing and right on the beach which is so convenient. Having to leave at the end of our stay was very hard however we hope to return next year.

The staff were extremely helpful but to be honest the place is so well run you don't really need any help apart from advice about which restaurants to go to. Even though there were 13 units in the building it felt like you had the place to yourself. The 3 bedroom suites are to die for and worth the extra cost for the space and the beach views. The rooms are tastefully decorated and has everything you need for a stress free holiday - it was so relaxing.The word luxury comes to mind when I think of Mainsail.

The beach is fabulous and the walk to the sand bar restaurant became our daily exercise. Having parking in front of the building was a plus and there was always a space available. My only negative was we chose some restaurants (those on the piers) where the food was not very good in my opinion but they were always busy so it just could have been my taste.

The suite - 3 BR - was as nice or nicer than any home I've been in in my life - incredible furnishings - flat screen tv's, goose down pillows, perfect appliances, lights in closets, BOSE system...impeccably clean, NEW, tasteful, relaxing, elegant. We visited friends staying in a similar condo size/price rental - and they were completely jealous of our unit.

The VIEW - unbelievable - 4 large sliding doors overlooking DIRECT OCEAN
