“Fabuloust Trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 28, 2010

Our trip was wonderful with the only negative being the cool Florida weather. The staff was super from the booking through checkout. My husband and I traveled with our son, daughter-in-law and two granddaughters. We all had a great time. The hotel property is very clean and the beach is well maintained. We enjoyed walking down to John's Pass. Lots to see there. We had lunch at the Green Iguana on Monday - $5 hamburgers that were fabulous. We also enjoyed dinner at the Conch Republic that was just up the road in Redington Beach. We flew in and out of Tampa International. The trip from the airport was easy - about 30 minutes depending on traffic. We ate breakfast and lunch in the room and found the microwave, mini fridge and dishes adequate for our needs. The laundry room was clean and we appreciated being able to take home clean clothes. While the resort is great, it is the staff that sets this facility apart. They just couldn't have been nicer or more responsive. We took the ferry to Egmont Key and enjoyed a sunny but cool day there. Saw lots of dolphin on the trip. We had one rainy day and took a trip to Prime Outlet Mall. Great shopping and enjoyed the trip over the "big" suspension bridge. We booked this resort from the comments on Trip Advisor and were not disappointed. We plan to return again soon.

This hotel is so peaceful and relaxing. It is right on the beach and extremely quiet! The rooms are clean and nice sized and the beach is great to. The best part is the staff - they will do whatever to make you happy and love giving great customer service. The only negative aspect was the beds. They were small and a little uncomfotable.

Overall a great place to stay!

This hotel/condo is simply awesome. It is clean, comfortable, located RIGHT on the beach, and the staff here is absolutely the best I have ever seen. They are warm, friendly, accomodating and really make you feel welcomed. The manager is so nice, so people-friendly and gracious as to put other hotels to shame. The service here is so incredibly good that I simply have to give Barefoot Beach my utmost thumbs-up. My room here was right on the Gulf. My room was clean, well-apportioned and they accomodated my every request without even blinking. I arrived late, but there was no issue. My key was waiting, as was my room. It's right near the pier, so you can walk - WALK to some great restaraunts and attractions. The beach is clean and manuicured (they scrape it with a tractor, so the sand is smooth and manicured - I kid you not). This location is perfect, right near St. Pete, and right close to all the beach life you can handle. The staff here is laid back and really treats travellers with southern charm and friendliness. I stayed in a 1-bedroom suite with a beach view - what a total homerun. Look, read my reviews on TripAdvisor - if I get a crappy place, I say so. This hotel is so totally awesome as to defy common traveller experience. BOOK IT - you will thank me. And I am not some hack paid for by this hotel - I am giving you my honest feedback on my experience here in Madeira Beach. Enjoy!

Staff is extremely friendly and helpful. They went out of their way for us.
Oceanfront room was wonderful. Clean, quiet, comfortable.
Walking distance to John's Pass shopping, eating and pubs.
The best part was the location and the worst part was the cold weather. Mother Nature didn't cooperate with us. A cold front came in for the week and stayed.

I found this place on the internet and was worried about what we would find.
We couldn't have been happier! Great staff, clean rooms with just enough space and good location. We will be back.

Clean, warm pool just a few steps from the beach. We had three separate rooms over looking the beach . Beautiful sunsets from all the balconies and wonderful morning sun reflected on the ever changing water of the Gulf.

All the staff was very friendly and graciously took care of all of our requests. Parking is right under the hotel and is located just steps from two sets of stairs or the elevator.

The office had plenty of suggestions for local eateries and will print out your airline boarding passes for you when you leave. WiFi was handy, although AT&T 3G was full strength anywhere in the hotel.

John's Pass is just a short walk down the street, with Kilwin's (ice cream), Addicted to the Bean (coffee), Friendly Fisherman (clam chowder) and Hubbard's (fishing charters). DeLossa's will deliver pizza to your room.

The kids loved Thai Am 2 just across the street, the tatami room at Osaka, and The Frog Pond for breakfast. A short drive away near Target (Starbucks) and Walmart is The Green Iguana (hamburgers) and Doe Doe's (a diner for an inexpensive breakfast or lunch).

Frenchy's in Clearwater Beach is just a half an hour drive away. Try the Buffalo Grouper sandwich. Go there and spend the afternoon at the beach.

It was our second visit in a year and we plan to come back again. Our only suggestion was to add a walk in Jacuzzi to the open area at the end of the pool.
