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.

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.

Silver Surf

Nice people. Great location. Private beach access. Beach chairs and towels are free to use! Pool on site. Hot Hot shower!! The only con really was that the door didn't have a good lock. My young children could simply turn the knob to unlock it.

A great place on the island!

The hotel was close to everything. We had a late arrival but the staff was kind and conveniently located on the property. Even though the beach was located across the street we didn't have to carry chairs and/or umbrella. The hotel had these located on the beach side and set it all up for us! Another plus was the Trolly stop was located right out front of hotel.

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

My 8-yr old loved Gamble Mansion in Ellenton. We had a picnic lunch then took the affordable guided tour- the tour guide was very informative! We spent about 2 hours total, a nice afternoon trip :)

Short summer vacation

Room was clean, and perfect for a family of 3. Located on a private beach, quiet, peaceful and beautiful. Can tell that it had been recently renovated, but was cozy and clean. Will definitely consider staying here again!

Do not go to Sharky's- overpriced for ok food. Drive a little further and eat at a little grill on the marina near the aquarium and bait shop called New Pass (the bait shop is called Alexandra's. Great fish and sub sandwich for a reasonable price. (also avoid the sweet shop- will overcharge, not offer a receipt, and argue with you about what you ordered!)

Nice weekend

Got away for a few days. The room was a nice sized and clean. Best part: the quick walk across the road for beach access. The staff was friendly, the breakfast quick and simple. I'd stay again for sure.

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.
