We stayed in the Mermaid Bungalow, which we chose because it is in the very front of the resort and you can literally step off your porch onto the sugar white soft sand and then into the warm clear water of the Gulf of Mexico. The staff was very sweet and helpful with recommendations for places to go, and places...

So disappointed. We rented the most expensive bungalow which turned out to be across a very busy street instead of on the beach. The website recommended we let them know what time we arrive. we did. No one was there to greet us because it was after hours. Furniture from the fifties..and it showed. A very expensive mistake.

Easy check in, friendly staff and magnificent quiet beach. Towels, chairs and umbrellas on site. Clean white sand beach is adjacent to the rooms. Great sunsets. Clean and well kept rooms. Close to great eateries and shopping. Half hour drive to St. Armands Circle and the Sarasota Aquarium.

We loved the easy access to the beach and the chairs/umbrellas readily available for guests. If you are looking for a resort-style room, this will not fit the bill. We found the room comfortable and clean but not worthy of the room rate. The room comes with a kitchen so we ate in all meals which was convenient. However, sharing...

After over 200 reviews I have a much better understanding of the reviews I read. Some are over rated, some under. The reality is the truth many times lies in the middle and each review is true based on a point of view or expectation. So here is my point of view. Let me start by saying in a normal...

Don't have overly high expectations, and you will be fine. The beach and water is beautiful which is really what you are there for. The bungalows seem smaller than the pictures, and we had to fix a few things when we got there. My husband had to fix the toilet which kept running all the time, and the back door...

This is probably the 4th time I've stayed here and I look forward to it every time. Staff is great and the property is clean. I stay in the bungalow with the private pool and I love it. The only problem was that the TV remote was missing and although the owner was told on the first day, it was...

We were looking forward to spending a couple of nights on anna maria and after lots of research booked the pool house here! Big disappointment. Bungalow was run down and dirty. White bedding was grubby, bath stained and floors dirty. When getting sofa bed out moved sofa cushions and it was gross underneath. Only kettle was a camping kettle. Didn't...

Sand fleas on beach and bungalow. We had to buy a Bomb for our room. We stayed 7/19 thru 24. Dirty bed covers. Dirty sofa. Cruddy Stove and Oven. In fact, look under the bed! Not worth the money. Brook, however, did the best she could... No one cleaned bungalow, just sheet change after 4 days. We were in the...
