“Nice place to stay by the beach”
Reviewed August 14, 2013

This was a very nice little hotel right on the beach. The view from our room was lovely. The pool was quite small but very clean and well kept. The room itself was alright. There wasn't a lot of extra room...we had three cases as we were away for four weeks. So it was a tight squeeze. The air conditioning was in the corner of the room blowing onto where the kids were sleeping on a pull out bed. They found if very cold there and couldn't sleep so we had to swap beds...the pull out bed was not that comfortable. The kitchen was very small and not suitable for cooking at all. We just had our breakfast there. It was a few minutes walk into the town which was quite nice. There wasn't a great selection of places to eat but we managed. There are nice shops in the area. But all in all we enjoyed our stay there. The staff were lovely and so helpful.

My daughters and I stayed in a Beachfront Studio. The kitchenette had everything that was needed, bathroom and room was very clean. The view from the balcony to the beach and Gulf was amazing. Cindy & Heath was always friendly and helpful..the only complaint I have is that the mattress in the bed was extremely hard, I woke up everyday with my body hurting. Everything else was just perfect

Stayed one night, wished it had been longer. Lovely clean rooms. Ours had a ocean view. A perfect place to watch the sunset and get engaged. The next morning we had a lovely walk along the beach. Paddling with the Pelicans in the beautiful clean warm ocean.

Room Tip: Choose an ocean view. Beautiful view and the sound of the ocean at night sets the scene.

Stayed here beginning of June for 3 nights and just loved our beach view.We saw dolphins a couple of times. There was a pod of dolphins with a baby and they came quite close in to shore.This hotel is well situated with Johns Pass only 5 min walk away.The room was clean and had everything we needed.The staff were fantastic as on the day we were checking out there was a tropical storm with very high winds and really heavy rain. The guys in reception(sorry I don't remember your names) were brilliant and wouldn't let us drive in the awful weather. They gave us back the key ,supplied us with coffee and told us to stay as long as we wanted until the storm was over.How good is that!!!. We would love to come back again sometime.

Room Tip: pay extra and get a beach view .Beautiful

My hubby and I recently stayed at BBH for two nights to celebrate a 3 year cancer free milestone and our 37th wedding anniversary.

Our gulf front studio with balcony and kitchenette was very quiet, clean, comfortable and spacious enough for the two of us. We saw dolphins swimming as soon as we walked out on our balcony! Kitchenette items were clean and included toaster and coffee maker, eating utensils and a small dining table so we were able to bring our own breakfast and snack items and enjoy the gulf view as we ate. The couch was a bit worn in spots but comfy and pleasantly soft against sun kissed and wave whacked skin. . I personally found the studio to be setup just the way I would want it if I had a beach apartment.

We wholeheartedly agree with all the recent positive postings regarding reasonably quiet a/c, good showers and close proximity of St. John’s Pass with its interesting array of shops and restaurants. Not having to drive anywhere and find parking to visit shops and restaurants was a plus. In fact, between the beach and pool and St.John’s Pass, we kept busy enough that we didn’t plug into the internet once or watch TV which is really saying something.

Beach is beautiful and we swam for hours during our first day there but not as much the following day because nature being as awesome and unpredictable as it is, the waves were very rough. Consequently, we swam in their sparkling refreshing pool and relaxed in the beautifully maintained and landscaped pool area. On check out day we noticed the waves had calmed down substantially and many swimmers back in the warm waters. The expansive beach has several protected turtle nesting areas and one evening we were delighted to watch from afar as a large turtle came out of the gulf and waddled onto the beach to check its nest.

There were many local and international families vacationing there during our visit as well as mature and younger couples. Everyone was respectful of other guests and everyone seemed to be enjoying their stay as much as we did.

Over the past 40 years my husband and I have visited over 2 dozen Florida gulf vacation spots and we agree that Barefoot Beach Resort has become one of our top favorites and God willing, we hope to return again and again.

Special thanks to all the staff at Barefoot Beach Resort and especially to Cindy,Aaron and Heath for being so welcoming,courteous, and helpful throughout our celebratory stay.

From the moment we checked in until the last day, the service received by everyone at this resort was superior. The room was clean, the view was unbelievable, pool was nice, the gulf was warm, we enjoyed the beach everyday! Shelling was awesome down there and we will definitely be back! A special thanks to Cindy & Heath for all the hospitality and to Sherry for keeping us stocked with the towel exchange!

Room Tip: Stay beach front "gulf view" the sunsets are endless!

First time visitor at the Barefoot; I stayed here a couple of nights the weekend after the 4th of July. As usual, Madeira is slammed, mostly with locals like me this time of the year, but it was festive and the Barefoot was perfect for what I was looking for! The place is clean, with modern amenities; free Wi-Fi; flat screen TV; chest fridge, microwave coffee-maker and basic kitchen stuff; I had a beach room with balcony, (F.Y.I: Rooms facing the pool are discounted a bit) and the Barefoot is close in proximity to Gators/John's Pass, as well as to most of the necessities there over on the Tampa Bay Beaches/Gulf Blvd. (For those of you not familiar with Tampa Bay Beaches/Gulf Blvd.; the Barefoot is close to good restaurants, good bars of all varieties, grocery stores, convenience stores, boat/Sea-Doo rentals a block away; etc.)

I can't speak highly enough of the staff there; everyone was great! Housekeeping (and I didn't really need much) and the Grounds People were more than accommodating and Friendly. Cindy at the front desk is a "Madeira/Treasure-Island/Indian Shores/Indian Rocks/St.Pete" aficionado! She knows the area well, and if she doesn't know, she'll find it for ya! I've stayed at a lot of places along Madeira, but I'll be back to stay here at the Barefoot again!
