Great place with great customer service. Thanks to Heath at the front desk for all his help. Wonderful property with great views. Convenient to everything. We had no car but were able to walk to dinner and shopping from Barefoot Beach Hotel. Thank you for such a great getaway.

This is a very nice, very clean, and well run hotel! I love that I don't have to stay the whole week but still get the same benefits as a condo minus the stove. The beach and pool are perfect! The staff are also very friendly. There is no housekeeping but beach towels as well as clean bath towels and...

Nice area walking distance to John's pass boardwalk. Private beach is nice to have there. Rooms are just okay, bed not to comfortable very noisey head board. Bathroom would have been okay if it had a vanity as oppose to a pedestal sink, no space to do your things especially for the women. To relax at the beach and walk...

outatime_10, Thank you for your review. We appreciate the feedback. The room you were in sounds like a room with an ADA bathroom. They have pedestal sinks. The next time you book with us just let us know you do not want a room with a bathroom like this. Once again thank you for your kind words. Regards, Aaron H....

For the price the amenities aren't there. We payed $249 a night for 5 nights. The accommodations were not the best, after 6pm on weekdays if you need anything like toilet paper or other products you have to go to the store and buy it. I went to use the laundry room and there was a change machine that wasn't...

Spent one night here at tail end of a five day Florida trip. Having such immediate access to the beach was wonderful. Madeira beach had white sand, fun waves and was not congested. A seven minute walk from John's Pass Village and Boardwalk which provided waterfront views, great food and shopping. The room at the Barefoot Beach was quite nice....

The rooms definitely need updated and a more though cleaning. We were afraid to walk without shoes on since the tile floors had sand on them from previous stays. Water pressure was good and the location was good. But for the price it really needs updating and cleaning. Nicer rooms were the same price but were booked so we ended...

If you want to enjoy the beach and you don't need a lot of amenities, frills, and full service on-site, then this is the place for you. You can walk directly onto the beach from the hotel and it is a very nice, well-maintained beach. The hotel seemed very busy with families. But, it is just as nice for a...

We had the best time at this hotel. The room was great - we had four adults (our 2 grown children were with us) and was comfortable without being stuffy. We loved the balcony. The front desk attendants were very friendly and helped with anything you asked. The beach was so close you could really walk barefoot to the beach....

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights in a beachside unit. The location and view were wonderful!! The room was very well appointed, and clean. The bed however, was probably one of the most uncomfortable that I've ever tried to sleep on. It was extremely firm. I've camped on softer ground! The pool area was very nice, except...
