My husband and I stayed here this past weekend ( memorial day wknd 2014 ) It was very nice. The landscape is beautiful and tropical. The pool area was very nice. It was extremely quite ! This resort has units, like little apartments, so no hotel lobby to walk thru or elevators to take. You park and just walk right to your unit. We stayed in unit 15 and then switched to unit 12 our last night there. Both units were very nice and each had a small private outdoor area. It is one block to Tampa Bay ( if even a one minute walk ) and there is a beach there. This beach would be great for little kids as the water was very shallow and no waves. There is a restaurant right on the corner. There is also an ice cream shop and a few little stores. The Anna Maria City Pier is also right there. There is a restaurant at the end of the pier. We thought the food there was excellent. Many people were fishing on the pier. There is another pier about a mile down the road. That is the rod and reel pier. It also has a restaurant. The food was ok but we liked the restaurant at the pier closer to the resort better. There a few shops around the block from the resort.... Boutique style. There was also a place to rent beach chairs, bikes, etc... About 3 or 4 blocks the other way from the resort is the gulf of mexico. It's about an 8 - 10 min walk. Parking is very limited by the beach there so it is much easier to walk. The beach was beautiful with soft white sand...no loud music or obnoxious loud people ( I'm used to ny beaches lol ) The gulf is very calm also...no large waves. There was a manatee swimming right by us. There is a restaurant right there on the beach that we had dinner at one night. The food was great. There are several shops on the road that runs next to the beach. This is the north end of the island. We drove down to the south end of the island and it was much more congested and seemed to have more of a party atmosphere with a ton of motels. We were looking for a quiet relaxing weekend, so the sunrise garden resort was perfect for us. The staff was very nice and helpful..we had a great weekend.
