“Watch what room you get”
Reviewed February 20, 2008

My husband and I just returned from a 5 day stay. Over all the place was very clean, the location is not very "walker" friendly, it is located on a very busy road. When we arrived the room we had booked was unavailable, so we looked at couple others. Be careful what room you have, the rooms located closest to the highway are very noisy and the only view you have from your balcony is the bridge traffic. If we traveled to this area again, we would not stay here again.

My mom has a friend that owns a condo here and she arranged for us to rent the condo for the holiday's. I did not know the name of the condo until we arrived so I had no idea what to expect. I was very pleasantly suprised. This place is perfect! Location is perfect, not too big so it stays fairly quiet. The condo has a heated pool and the best part for us was sitting on the balcony watching the dolphins in the bay. I have never stayed somewhere where I could actually see dolphins as close as they were here. We will deffinately be staying here again.

We stayed at Boca Ciega Bay Resort from 5/16 t0 5/30...it was pretty quiet until the Memorial Day Weekend. The condo is small (1 bedroom and 1 pull out sofa) but has all you need. The balcony faces the Boca Ciega Bay and while there, we were able to see so many dolphins, seabirds, a manatee, an eagle, ducks, etc. We also watched the boats and watched the Sheriff and Fish and Wildlife pull over boats on the holiday weekend. Was pretty interesting. I liked it better than the beach because there was always something going on. Next door is the Green Iguana...(the best burgers around). We really had a wonderful time. Boca Ciega Resort is only about 7 min from the ocean and we barely made it over there, we enjoyed our view so much. The condo was new, clean and very neat. The owners were wonderful.

Boca Ciega Bay Resort has 4 floors and is not a big condominium so it is very easy to park and take things from the car to your condo. Elevators are fast. We were close to everything. Had a wonderful time and will definitely be back! We really enjoyed ourselves and it was one of our best vacations.
