We loved staying in The Mermaid. Fall asleep to the sound of the ocean and wake up to beautiful sunrises without leaving your bed. It was splendid. If your not into big resorts this is the place for you. Thanks for keeping it old school.

Stayed: February 2018, travelled with family

My husband and I stayed in the Pineapple room next to the pool -- it was small but perfect for 2 people; very clean, cozy and fun. The vibe is old-time Florida with the feel of visiting someone's much-loved beach bungalow (as we have done at home) -- nothing fancy but super comfortable and relaxed. Loved being only a few steps from the beach and having the chairs with umbrellas available to watch the amazing sunset in the evenings. The staff was warm and helpful and made us feel very welcome. We will definitely return!
2 notes: No daily maid service; easy to replace towels, soap, kitchen items, etc. using daily drop-off request in a provided basket by your room door -- we enjoyed this but some people may need more services. The shower in our room was small. We are average-sized people but for someone large (weight or height) it might be uncomfortable.

Room Tip: Pineapple room is next to pool so you can hear the fountain-like filter early in the morning and evening. We enjoyed it but some would not.

Perfect little getaway in the south end of Anna Maria Island.
Very laid back atmosphere. Our room was clean and cozy (Room#110) and being just a few feet from the beach was so convenient.
We will hopefully return to AMI and would definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: The larger bungalows right on the beach are great but for the difference in the nightly rate, the smaller rooms right by the pool are fine.

We each brought our young granddaughter(s) for a 5-day visit. They loved the private pool! Beach is very close by. A little tight for 5 and only 1 bathroom, but it can work. Staff is friendly and helpful!
