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.

We rented a two-bedroom deluxe suite at the Tortuga Inn on Anna Maria Island for a short-term visit for our children. The accommodations were well-appointed and very clean, the staff was outstanding, and the location was spectacular. The grounds were well-groomed and immaculate. We stayed for an extended stay at Tortuga’s sister resort, Tradewinds, and had a very similar experience. Great staff, super clean accommodations, and convenient location. We have been to Anna Maria for many years and Tortuga and Tradewinds were terrific places to stay.

My daughter has a gymnastics meet in Bradenton and it only makes sense to stay at the beach! I found Tortuga on google maps and called and it the staff couldn’t be more wonderful. They were very informative, knowledgeable and nice. The resort was wonderful and the island is a great place for agetaway! 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

Tortuga Beach Resort is the ONLY place we stay on the Island. Staff is friendly, location is perfect and the rooms are clean and fresh. Been staying there for 8 years and have already booked our 2016 vacation there.


My wife said this was one of the top places we have ever stayed. We brought another couple and rented a 1400 square foot 2 bedroom 2 bath apartment. It was fantastic. Housekeeper should be given a raise the place was so clean. Continue reading

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.
