My wife and I stayed for a couple of nights in January and whilst the weather was not particularly welcoming, we could only admire the location right on the beach. Our bungalow was #102 'Desoto' and whilst it had everything one would need and overlooked the sea and beach it was

This was our first time visiting the Bungalow Beach Resort at Anna Maria Island. The staff was super nice and very helpful. Our Bungalow was by the pool but only a short walk through the Palm Trees and other Bungalows to the relaxing beach. Although our Bungalow was small it

I've been coming to this charming little resort for about a dozen years now, and it never disappoints! I love the cozy, old-Florida style. The property is located literally on the beach. I LOVE waking up in the morning and stepping out the door ONTO the beach! Anna Maria Island

You can't beat being on the beach and hearing the waves from your bed. It was Worth the extra $100 to pay for 1 of the cottages facing the water. I would not return if we were in any of the cottages in the back. We stayed in #102. For 2 nights our total was close to $800. With a

Response from bungalowbeach, Manager at Bungalow Beach Resort
Responded 4 weeks ago
Hello. We Sincerely apologize that you were locked in the bathroom. There is actually not several years of paint on the lock...you just have to pull the door towards you to unlock the dead bolt. The situation with the child was that the parents sent their child to use the restroom (unattended, at 5 years old) (obviously not paying attention to weather or not the child used their bungalow restroom or the pool restroom, and again, the child did not know to pull the door towards him when he went to unlock the dead bolt.) After the child was missing for approx. 15 minutes, the mother admitted to not keeping her on the child as she should have and the staff immediately ran to the water/beach area to look for the child. It wasn't until approx. 10 minutes later that she told us that the child went to use the restroom. After looking in their bungalow, and not finding the child, we immediately checked the pool bath, where the child was literally sitting on the floor making paper birds out of the paper towels. We told the child to simply pull the door towards him and turn the lock, the child did, and the door opened.(If he was unable to, we have a key that will open the lock...but it was easy enough for the child to open the door himself.) We do apologize that you had this experience, but we can assure you that (being that we have had 1 issue with a 5 year old child and 1 issue with an adult in 20 years) there are no problems with the lock on the door. We do have inspections on all of our locks and hardware on any exits/doors for fire hazards and have yet to be sited with any problems. Again, we strive to make everyone's stay as beautiful as possible and we are very sorry that we failed your expectations. We have made note of the other issues that you experienced while you were with us and are working on rectifying any of the problems immediately. Thank you for you review and we hope to see you again in the near future.

Yes, the rooms have a coffee maker, a small fridge, a burner for cooking and there are several large grills for bbq outside in the communal area. There is one small pool for everyone and a great big ocean with a beautiful beach! The pool is usually not crowded. Most people go there for the beach. Bring your own coffee filters for a small pot. If you forget, and we have many times, you can always improvise with paper towels, which are also present.

Hi there, The majority of our bungalows are connected to at least another one. However, we do have a private pool home ("Catamaran") that stands alone across the street, with its own private pool. We also have "Dolphin and Tortuga" (which are 2 that are connected) but they are all equipped with "fire walls", so the noise levels are next to non existent, unless you get a really rowdy neighbor, which is quite rare. Another bungalow that would be an option is the "Sand Dollar" as it is separated by a porch in the back...so the walls are not actually "touching". We hope to see you soon!
