“Wonderful Stay at Club Bamboo!”
Reviewed 23 October 2011

Spent five wonderful nights on the end of our Anna Maria trip in a beautifully updated Tommy Bahama style studio condo at Club Bamboo. It saved our vacation! Our room had been recently redone with new tile floors, granite countertops, lovely decor, a flat screen television, Ipod dock, newly floored deck, newer A/C unit, and lots of other bells and whistles. We were thrilled after spending our first week in a poorly maintained tired condo two doors down at the Anna Maria Dream Inn. The Dream Inn appears to have formerly been part of Club Bamboo Resorts since some of the negative reviews here show photos of the Dream Inn building. The Dream Inn was dirty, rundown, and NOT to be confused with Club Bamboo! The Club Bamboo building has nicely furnished decks overlooking the ocean and its pool is on the beachside. Club Bamboo was well-maintained, and service in the office was extremely friendly and helpful. When we go back to Anna Maria Island, Club Bamboo will be our first choice! I wish we'd known about this place in advance of our vacation!

I have never seen a place with so many stains on the floor, gunk smeared on the walls and cabinets and what appeared to be feces on the shower curtain. The stench was terrible as well. When we arrived Friday we had to turn the fridge to the coldest possible setting because it was hot. Come Saturday the fridge was not cold and we told the office who went on to tell us we needed to make sure we keep the door closed and turn the knob to cold. Thanks where we come from there aren't fridges. This is the worst place I have ever stayed.

Reviews I saw made me wonder, but this place was great! I think all of the room are ocean veiw with a balcony... it is not a big place as far as number of rooms. The rooms was HUGE with a full kitchen, granite counters, ceramic/marble floors, and carpet. It was very clean and everything worked great. The bed was SOO comfortable! Plus it was quiet, even though we were staying over the 4th of July weekend. We loved it and definately plan to return.

Room Tip: I assume they are all the same, and nice!

We paid $200 a night for a room where the carpet was filthy dirty. No house keeping. $200 a night & nothing , unless you pay $18 extra. your trash stays , no towels , no service. Pool area was run down with trash cans over flowing. Never , Ever a beach chair. theres about 10 and people put towels on them then leave for the day reservering for later in the day. No phones to call office. Even came out of the elevator & somebody took a dump by the elevator door. truely gross. the view was great the building was not. wouldnt stay again!

Room Tip: view is nice if you like a rundown hotel
