Barefoot Beach Hotel
Ranked #3 of 15 Hotels in Madeira Beach
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 15, 2013

We have stayed at Barefoot Beach twice. Being Florida natives that have moved out of state we know this area very well! We have a large family and Barefoot accommodates well. My husband grills out by the pool and we had friends and family come visit us while here......the staff goes above and beyond. When our youngest son locked the key in the room after the Office had closed on a Holiday weekend the nice lady in the office came from home to let us back in. Thanks for the great stay and we look forward to seeing you again next year!!

After a little glitch at check-in (a little my fault a little their fault), we had a fabulous vacation. Aaron solved the problem and made our stay even better than we had planned. Everyone who works at this hotel was great. Aaron, Cindy and Heath couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. The rooms were clean and very well equipped, right down to the corkscrew and wine glasses. The location is also great. Right on the beach, walking distance to John's pass,restaurants, and shopping. The pool is clean and warm if you prefer that to beach. We watched beautiful sunsets every night. If you're looking for a relaxing,affordable getaway, this is your hotel. This was my second visit to barefoot beach and will definitely be back!!!!!

Room Tip: I recommend paying a little more for gulf view room. Can't beat the view!

Couldn't disagree more with the previous review it sounds like a different hotel!! I am writing this from the hotel room and have seen no sign of any of the previous comments. Have been here since 6th May. Have heard no bad comments from other guests. I am not an employee of the hotel and have have travelled from England to stay here for 2 weeks. Into our second week and have nothing but praise for the hotel. The view is to die for. The rooms are very clean, staff very friendly. Bedside light didn't work when we arrived within minutes both lamps were replaced with new ones. Has everything we need for a beach holiday and would definitely recommend it. Had friends over from Orlando and they thought it was great. Property Manager took time to talk to us asked if everything was ok for us.

Room Tip: Definitely a gulf view well worth the extra

Property does have a good location on beach. Was to cold to use the pool or the beach. Other than location I was not very impressed. Room was small and bed was soft. I could her the conversation of the occupants next door like I was in the room with them. The ate in the room and you could hear the fork hit the plate. The old guy was singing "mirror, mirror on the wall" which was comical.

Thank you for the kind words. We are very sorry the weather was not warm while you were here. Unfortunately this is something we cannot control. Our pool however is heated to 84 degrees and is very nice to swim in when it's cold outside. We are very sorry you did not have a chance to check the water temperature. We do encourage all of our guests to be happy and cheerful singing is one of the side affects of staying at the Barefoot Beach Hotel!

This is our third year in a row visiting Barefoot Beach Resort and it never disappoints. Grounds were well maintained, pool area was super nice and the beach is right out the door! Front office staff was super helpful and attentive to any requests. I will remind you that this is not a traditional hotel where you get room made up daily. You only get back fresh what you put in the basket - but this makes sense to me and the system works very well. If you are looking for a great place to stay ON THE BEACH...this is the place! We will be back next year!!

Room Tip: Pay the extra and get a beach front room!

Stumbled Upon It Here On Tripadvisor And So Glad We Did! The People Checking Us In Were Wonderful And Very Accommodating. The Room Was Just Right. My Only Regret Was That We Didn't Find It Days Earlier After Spending ThreeTimes As Much For Something Not As Nice! We Will Definitely Be Back!

Nicely located by all the shopping and the beach. My room was facing the pool and my wifi worked perfectly. I seen others had trouble so they must have resolved the issue. Clean room, no issues with anything.
