Picture sand dunes sea oats and evergreen trees thats all you see on Anna Maria Island. No high rise condo buildings or hotels looming over the Gulf of Mexico. Located at the bottom of Tampa Bay our island has managed to retain the feel of a laid back old Florida. On our island it really is all about beach strolls quaint restaurants and great accommodations. The Silver Surf Gulf Beach Resort offers 50 laid back Florida style accommodations. Most feature mini kitchens. Amenities include private white sand beach outdoor heated pool outdoor grills complimentary beach towels beach lounge chairs umbrellas and beach volleyball. Bicycle scooter wave runner sailboat rentals available on the property. The turquoise Island Trolley will take you the entire length of this beautiful 7 mile island free of charge. Visit the recently restored Bridge Street Pier where you can now fish for cobia grouper mackerel mullet pompano sea bass and snapper. Located at the end of historic Bridge Street The Pier is part of the original plank bridge that served as the access to the island from the mainland for 40 years.

Much Needed Winter Escape

Being from Chicago we needed a warm destination to escape to and AMI was perfect! Silver Surf has just been redone (including private beach) and is a great place to stay. The room was clean, spacious and had everything we needed. The staff was helpful when we checked in and overall this was a great experience.

Clean Beach Hotel

An older hotel, but well maintained and very clean rooms. Great location - right across the street from their own private beach. Beach chairs and towels provided. Very happy with our stay here.

Great Location and Service.

We enjoyed being so close to the beach, beach towels were provided. The hotel staff at the beach moved lounge chairs for us ! The hotel is older but has been updated and is very clean. The pool was a nice addition when it was too windy to be on the beach.

Clean, cheap getaway

For the money, this is a good place to stay. Great beach. Only issue was people smoking outside of our room at night & the smell coming in the AC.

Great overnight stay

The room was really clean. Nice to have the microwave and fridge. Great to just get up in the morning and sit out on the porch and have coffee then walk across the street to the beach for a wonderful walk. The staff at this resort were excellent would definitely go back for another stay.

Pleasant stay

This hotel is good value, conveniently located, walk to the Gulfdrive Cafe for breakfast along the beach. Rooms are small but tidy. Must cross busy road to reach beach - not ideal with children.

Awesome!

The view of the sunset from our room and the private beach was breathtaking!! The staff was very friendly and helpfull, we decided to stay another night and the man at the front desk was so polite, we were out shopping and getting ready to go out on a speedboat at 10 am and he asked if we could pay by 5 pm......how can you top that?
