Great location! Only a block or so from john's pass. Beautiful white sand beaches! We felt like we had our own private beach! The rooms are beautifully decorated, very clean, and very roomy. This is a great place to visit and a great place to stay!!!

We stayed for 4 nights at the end of our 5 week road trip in the states and were delighted that all was as we expected, I`d even had some reservations about the lack of housekeeping services but I have to say that the system really works and on a couple of mornings we lazed in our room in stead...

Fab location right on beach. Shopping area only a few minutes walk with good selection of shops. Great fish restaurant opposite. Pool area very clean and tidy. Even has washing machine and dryer (small boxes of detergent sold at reception) meaning no dirty washing brought home.

We stayer at the hotel for nearly two weeks!! No problems, Pool was always clean and the room was just fine for our stay. No problems with no daily maid service.. We would fill out the refill list and set it out the next morning and they would replace whatever we needed. We could see dolphins daily from our hotel...

2014 was my fourth vacation on Madeira Beach, but this was my first time staying at the Barefoot Beach Hotel... and it will be the only place I will stay in the future. If you are staying at a hotel for a week or more, it is very important that the setting is comfortable and relaxing. Everything about my stay...

We had a great time! Location is perfect! Close to John's Pass and restaurants, you can walk or take your bike to John's Pass. We took our bikes, because I didn't want to pay for parking at John's Pass. The hotel was great, except for one thing, the bathroom wasn't clean to me, it had a foul odor, but other...

After having to relocate to Tennessee, we were able to go back to our favorite gulf beach, Maderia. We also stayed for the 4th time at Barefoot Beach Hotel. Heath was very welcoming as always and glad to see us return. We were only able to stay 2 nights, and made me sad to leave not only Maderia but Florida...

Great location right on the beach and just a 5 minute walk to St John's Pass with a great selection of bars and restaurants. The cleaning arrangements for the room were a bit unexpected in that it didn't get cleaned, but this wasn't a problem during our short stay. Towels, toiletries etc. are changed daily on request. Would definitely visit...

Excellent location on beach, near to John's pass village and boardwalk just 5 minute walk away. The hotel room has everything you could need and the pool is an added bonus. Lovely early morning stroll on beach meant we encountered some dolphins playing just off shore. Will definately stay here again.

I was a little apprehensive about this stay. Old places on the beach often aren't exciting. THIS PLACE WAS FABULOUS!! Newly renovated rooms, impeccable cleanliness, a staff focused on customer service and a terriffic location where everyting was accessible by foot. If you are looking for a luxury resort, this isn't the place for you. If you want a small...
