We have been 2 times this year, this weekend will be our 3rd. It is relaxing, right on the water, wonderful clean facilities and awesome fishing!! Even if you don't have a boat its great to sit on the dock and fish from there. It definitely will be our home away from home!

If you like to fish and be on the water this is the place to go. Snuggled amidst fabulous landscaping with an old Florida feel. The accommodations are all massive and comfortable. The pool area is outstanding and the people are friendly and the owners Tammy and Tom are the best. As for the fishing we caught every species on...

We spent 4 days here on a recent visit to Ruskin. The close proximity to our son and his family made it a perfect spot. The cottage was very comfortable and quiet. The grounds are beautiful and the pool area was very nice! There is a nice dock area. The new management still has some things to improve on (tried...

Spent 4 wonderful days here, really don't want to leave. If you want a peaceful low key out of the way spot , then this is the place for you. Beautiful grounds, rooms clean, everything needed in them, even a resident cat who wants to be petted. Short drive to Tampa or Sarasota. I just can't find the right words...

Under new management so not that same as in the past. I stayed here before and enjoyed my stay. The previous owner made it a pleasant stay! New management was no where to be found many days. So if you had needs you just had to handle it yourself. I saw other guest helping potential customers with information about rooms...

I apologize for our absences as we were in the transition of selling our house in Lakeland and moving to Ruskin, to run Pirate's Pointe Resort. The previous owner assured us our guests would be taken care of and he would be on property to make sure that happened. We also have a receptionist working 8:30-12:00 and housekeeper daily. It...

We go here all the time. We love it. It is a very peaceful and quiet resort. Nice for a relaxing weekend by the water. We like the private pool option. Always very clean & plenty of cookware for staying in.

We absolutely love this little cottage-filled resort. If you are visiting the Tampa Bay area, Ruskin is a great home base for points north and south. We have stayed here several times and it feels like home, just beachy enough to be comfortable and impeccably clean.Our latest visit yielded rainy weather, but we still had a super stay. My teens...

As you enter this spot, the tropics surround you. We had a studio unit which had a large private courtyard, was close to the pool and large dock. It is like a retreat as it is quiet, simple and very clean throughout the grounds and unit. The staff had recommended we hire the charter captain (Josh) a month in advance...

Spent several days at the Pirates Point - it was clean, and had internet, cable and a nice "workable" kitchenette, and beautiful pool. The gorgeous landscaping made it truly story-book beautiful! It also has it's own dock, GREAT fishing, and has access to off-islands where you can find lots of sand dollars, coral and shark's teeth!

The Pirates Pointe Resort is true to their advertising. The units all look very clean and well maintained. Small kitchen was equipped with the basic necessities, enough to cook a nice meal and enjoy it. All units have a fairly private outside patio area. However, the bugs were pretty bad at times so enjoying this feature was difficult. The dock...
