Spring Break is definitely not the time to go to Florida and try to find a place on the beach, any beach, any place!
But we had spent time with friends and wanted to stay near Bradenton, Florida for a couple of days. Searching and searching we finally found a vacancy at Blue Water. It was a great choice, and we could not have done better.
There were three conditions we wanted to meet. The first was to be able to hear the waves at night, the second was to not pay an arm and a leg for the room. Third, but not necessarily in that order was it had to be clean and neat. The Blue Water met all three. They gave us room 129. 131 was the only room between us and the beach. That would have been the best one as it is right on the end by the sand and water, but 129 filled the bill for us. We left the door open all night and everytime we awakened we could hear the waves rolling up on the shore. The price was right, at least in comparison with the rest during Spring Break, and the room was neat and clean, with a microwave and refrigerator. All in all, we would choose to come back here, but would certainly avoid coming during spring break. That would drop the price about $50.00 a night.
