But since others have commented, I guess the cat's out of the bag. We've been coming here once or twice a year for the last four years. Anna Maria Island, where it's located, is one of those ever decreasing spots in Florida that hasn't been ruined by over-zealous real estate developers and their buddies the politicians who allow their shoddy...

We stayed here for a long weekend in July, +$400/night. It looks like little well kept bungalows on the outside, and in their ads. That is very deceptive from a fresh coat of yellow paint. To describe it best, the whole place is plastic inside: fake wicker plastic bed and furniture, vinyl flooring, tiny tiny showers, rusted wall unit air... More

The resort could be great with a little upgrade and attention by the owners. Our first night left a lot to be desired. When we decided to turn in for the night I discovered that the bed linens were used, dirty and full of sand. We could not reach anyone for new linens. Luckily I had brought a blanket with... More

Bungalow Beach Resort was exactly as advertised: "cottage chic", "retro. Florida", relaxed.... Management was attentive without being obtrusive. We thoroughly enjoyed our first stay (5 days), and we would certainly return. Our charming, clean and tidy bungalow was literally 5 footsteps off our private porch to the softest baby powder-white beach. The aquamarine water was crystal clear and clean--just a... More

This property is a wonderful example of old Florida charm with only a few bungalows that make it just cozy enough for a couple or small family. We stayed in Room 106 and loved the little private patio and short walk to the beach. The rooms are decorated in white beach themes and the beds are oh so cozy. My... More

We stayed in #101 right on the beach which was a huge plus for us. The bungalow was clean and nicely decorated. The management staff was helpful and pleasant. This unit had A/C units in the window. I thought the A/C units were a little loud when I was trying to sleep yet my husband said it did not bother... More

Can't deny friendliness of staff. After that.... it depends where your expectations are. Units could be cute but they look tired. Website photos make it appear more charming, more updated, and more spacious than what it is. Common living space is small with seating for a 2 BR only having a small couch and a dining table with 2 chairs.... More
