February Tortuga Reviews

tortuga“Vacation to Paradise”
February 25, 2016 – Massillon, Ohio

This was our seventh vacation on Bradenton Beach staying at Tortuga Beach Resort. We stayed in a bay-side deluxe one bedroom apartment. It was clean, with a washer and dryer and wonderful view of the bay. Our coffee maker was not working in the morning but was replaced with a new one within one hour after our phone call to the office, The staff is very helpful and the grounds are beautifully kept. The only downside was that our unit was already rented for next year and we will need to stay in another are at the resort. We are back home to snow in Ohio. I miss my paradise at the beach. Ugh!

“Beautiful and Charming Boutique Style complex”
February 24, 2016 – Cincinnati, Ohio

We stayed three nights at the delightful Tortuga Beach Resort in a Studio second floor room in Palm Court South. What an adorable and clean location! First, the service at check in was fantastic. The kitchenette was fully stocked and although we only used the fridge and wine glasses, it was perfect. We can imagine how useful it would be for a week’s stay. The location is ideal, steps from the ocean! The heated pool is great. The room was spotless! The in-room free wifi was FAST. The trees and foliage and the old Florida cottage feel made us feel like we were in a cute Key West home. We loved this resort and will definitely be back!!

“Last minute”
February 22, 2016 – Orlando, Florida

We stopped here as a last minute decision. It was great. Very nice place. Nice staff. Excellent condition and location. Our room was comfortable and private. Balcony was great. Beautiful beach access. Walking distance to nice restaurant. Quiet and peaceful.

One bedroom condo was clean, extremely comfortable, modern and worth the price. Screened in balcony area was perfect for cocktails and enjoying the bay view. Staff is friendly and helpful, parking is plentiful and many restaurants are close by. Trolley stops right outside to get around island.
Would stay here again!!!!!!!!!!!!

“Our Wedding at Tortuga”
February 10, 2016 – Wilmington, Delaware

I picked Tortuga Inn to get married at because I went to Anna Maria Island every year growing up for two weeks every June to visit my grandparents! I told my (now) husband about the island and he fell in love instantly, just from looking at pictures online! We went down for two weeks to vacation with our children before the wedding, got married at the end of the first week on the beach and spend a second week down there to honeymoon! Everything was perfect from the concierge to the event planner, Jordan, who is AMAZING, to the destination itself! I could not have asked for a better day/team to help organize my wedding from the beginning to the end. The whole crew was phenomenal and extremely accommodating to my every need/request (although I hope I wasn’t too needy)! We are definitely going to visit again! After actually stepping foot on the island and having his first experience there for the two weeks, my husband said, and I quote, “I would be happy vacationing there for the rest of my life!” He LOVES it there! This means so much more to me now that I get to keep the tradition going to vacation there every year! Even though my grandparents are no longer with us and couldn’t participate in the wedding festivities, I know they were smiling down on us! We LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it there and will definitely be back (hopefully soon)!!

“Perfect wedding!”
February 1, 2016 – Orlando, Florida

Originally, my wife and I planned to have a destination wedding in Haiti which is home to the both of us. However, plans fell through and we were running frantic looking for the ideal place to have our beach wedding still. We contacted and visited several places and all came short of our expectations. Then we found Tortuga Inn in Bradenton beach… We did not go over our budget for the wedding nor were there any hidden charges, they worked with us with everything, from our specific setup to the smallest details. The duo at Anna Maria Island Resorts; Jordan and Danté, were amazing! They worked very hard to make sure our wedding was a wonderful experience. From day one, their professionalism made us feel very comfortable and pleased with their promised efforts on making sure that everything would run smoothly. We can’t thank the two enough for their efforts. Especislly day of. We can’t wait to go back and crash in our favorite room. The place is amazing, the is stunning, very friendly staff. We could not have found a better place to wed.

This is our second time staying at this little gem! We love it and it truly is our happy place! The cottages have all the comforts of home (and super clean!) and the staff couldn’t be any sweeter! The only bad thing about staying there is…..having to leave!

Stayed here several times. The staff is very accomodating, the grounds well kept and the cottages are spotless. No complaints. The dock at back of hotel is very nice with fish cleaning station, chairs, well lit. Usually peaceful and quiet, never had a problem with noise. Great that they DO take pets.

Tortuga – an annual tradition

Reviewed 12/10/2015

First of all, Anna Maria Island is a little known gem on Florida’s west coast. The beaches are beautiful, there is a surprising number of good restaurants, lots of fun shops and, to top it off, there is a free trolley to take you where you want to go. AMI isn’t a tourist Mecca like Clearwater or St. Pete beach but there is lots to do and it has an old Florida charm and a relaxed pace that locals and visitors will enjoy. If you can bring your bikes, it’s a great way to explore the area.  Continue reading

“Very nice location good layout of the room close to everything”
November 28th, 2015

Across the street from the beach but the back locations are on the intra-coastal water way. I was there for a wedding (that was another location just down the beach) so I was able to see some of the other units. Mine was closer to the pool and it was a good set up with kitchen area a comfortable bed and then a small sitting area outside. It looked like you could open a door to allow for adjoining room to increase the size to allow for a family set up or two couples…yet still have the privacy with the large sitting area out front. The only draw back is that the a/c unit was in the front and did not get to the shower/bathroom and it did get warm. The location was very close to the Cortez Rd bridge which is nice. Also close to the main part of Bradenton Beach. The units close to the back were nice as they had a great view of the water and were right off the hot tub. Some were much large…did not know the price of those? They do allow pets. Continue reading

tortugaGreat Family Reunion Location
Reviewed 10/20/2015

We just stayed at Tortuga for the second time and we will be back! The rooms are clean and spacious and great for a family reunion. Stacey, the manager, did everything she could to make our stay enjoyable. Sunrises were right outside our door and spectacular sunsets right across the street. The beach was wonderful and never crowded while we were there for a week.

Bradenton Beach is beautiful!!
Reviewed 10/2/2015

We stayed at Tortuga Beach Resort go four days & had a wonderful time! We had a two bedroom unit with a partial view of the bay. The rooms were clean, very spacious, & we were able to bring our dog as our rooms were pet friendly. My husband enjoyed fishing from the dock & the beach area was beautiful. There were plenty of restaurants nearby. We had a relaxing time & would return given the opportunity.
