Unexpectedly found ourselves back in AMI after returning to the U.S. For the Stanley Cup game in Tampa. Had to stay at the Tortuga again and weren’t disappointed. Huge room with the comfiest beds. Choice of lovely pools. Friendly helpful staff and perfect location for fab beach sunsets and the funky nights around bridge Street. When we visit again we wouldn’t consider staying anywhere else.

I just returned from my second trip to Anna Maria Island and stayed for the second time at Tortuga Beach Resort. I had the 3 bathroom Penthouse this time and all I can say is WOW!!!!! Myself, my sister and my grandchildren , two 8 y/o and 1 ,12 y/o. I just love this place…it is impeccably clean, so much room, the staff are so helpful and pleasant, great pools( also very clean) so many conveniences that just make a weeks vacation like this with children so enjoyable. The beach is across the street, umbrellas and chairs provided and even a hook-up for my golf cart I rented this year( a must for the full island experience)! The décor is so pleasing and CLEAN< CLEAN< CLEAN!!!! No beachy musty smells!!! The beds are sooooooooooooooo comfortable and I love the bedspreads!! So pretty…where did you get them?? My grandkids have decided that this is OUR place now….and are already filling the coin jar for next year!!!! I have been from the Florida Keys to Maine and this is my favorite family vacation spot and the only one I made a return trip to. We will be back next year. Thank you.

We took our granddaughter to Florida for spring break. We all needed to get away from the cold. Very pleased with the resort area and the location. The beach was just across the road and easy to get to. The staff was great and very helpful. We had a downstairs room and it had a front and a back door. We could park right at the back door and get in the room without having to walk all the way around to the front. The room was very clean and comfortable. Had everything that you could want for a vacation. Also the small little front porch area had a table and chairs to enjoy sitting outside if you so wished. The pool was very nice and easily accessible. In fact the whole location of the resort was perfect for the location on the Anna Marie Island. Pretty much in the center so it wasn’t hard to get to anything. When we go back, we will be looking to stay here again if possible.

We had a family holiday and it could not have been more delightful. Our two bedroom suite was perfectly suited to our needs. The beach is just across the road so we could come home for lunch. The beach is superb and not at all busy. The restaurants within walking distance were excellent. We drove to other restaurants and enjoyed sunsets on other beaches. We had boat rides, paddle boarding, surfing and sun-bathing and walking and cycling all nearby.

We have stayed on Anna Maria Island many times throughout the years. We loved the location of Tropic Isle Resort! Close to restaurants, shopping and most of all the beach!! Our room was perfect for a group of four and decorated to island perfection. The resort itself was quiet in the evenings and although there were quite a few units there was a real since of privacy. We enjoyed mornings on the patio drinking our coffee catching glimpses of the ocean. The kitchenette allowed us to make many of our own meals during our stay. We would definitely return to this wonderful resort!

Stayed there last week for the 4 time and everything was better than before. I can’t think of a more relaxing place I have ever stayed. The wife and I just love the sunsets and just being able to walk right out to the beach. Hated to leave but looking forward to coming back. Great staff great rooms just a great place to stay if you love the ocean, sunsets and relaxation

Having researched every hotel on Anna Maria Island I came to the conclusion that the Penthouse Suite at the Seaside Beach Resort was the most suitable for our requirements and I was not disappointed. I want to be able to spend afternoons on a balcony gazing at the view and the big and virtually private terrace (access to the two small rooms on the same floor is along the front of the terrace) with its awning that kept a part of it in shade all day, its wonderfully comfortable wicker furniture and its two sided views of swaying palm trees, wide white sand beach and turquoise sea made it nothing less that a tropical paradise. Inside, the huge light and airy living/dinning room with floor to ceiling windows opening onto the terrace and the balcony was literally breath-taking, as was the big and beautifully furnished bedroom. The gourmet kitchen with its arched open counter into the living/dining room had everything anyone could want and made the suite feel like somewhere to live and not just spend a holiday. The air-conditioning in every room was as responsive as any we have ever encountered. The other two room on the first floor and the ground floor rooms all appeared to be small but our penthouse suite was without doubt the best accommodation we have ever had and the whole resort was immaculately maintained. It is in walking distance of a number of restaurants, including two beach front ones and the very funky Bridge Street, and the free trolley that runs up and down the island every 20 minutes is an absolute joy. We never expected to find anywhere as magical as the Florida Keys but Anna Maria Island is equally wonderful, particularly staying in the penthouse suite at the Seaside Beach Resort.

Just returned from a very nice weekend at Tradewinds Resort. The property is really nice, well maintained, great location and a great staff. There is a nice private beach area that is located across the street. Great pool area and fishing dock, too. We hope to return soon!

Beautiful grounds, staff were wonderful I even had a late check out on Sunday and they had no problem accommodating my request. The room was clean and well kept. The beach is just across the street and I used the beach chairs provided by the hotel. Wonderful little dock, loved watching people fish from it while I was enjoying the pool. Overall great place to run away too for the weekend.

My children and I have stayed at this motel twice now and we just love it. My sons like to fish and the dock is right behind the pool. My daughters and I enjoy hanging out at the pool and my sons enjoy fishing and when they get too hot, they just come jump in the pool and go right back to fishing. The rooms are always clean and they have everything you need to enjoy a weekend getaway!! The grounds are clean and landscaped and we really just enjoy staying there.
