Tortuga Beach Resort
Ranked #3 of 9 Hotels in Bradenton Beach
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 26 February 2013

The Tortuga Inn was the perfect place for us to have a getaway from the Northern winter. We were able to watch the sunrise on the pier on the inter-coastal bay, and the sunset on the gulf beach! The room we had was well equipped with a kitchenette, nice flat screen, and even a bidet!
It was quiet, cozy, and comfortable. We had everything we neede provided for us, dishwashing detergent, dish soap, paper towel, ect. Although we had our own car, there is a trolley stop right in front. We can't wait to start planning our return!

My husband and I stayed at the Tortuga Inn for a week in Feb 2013. This was our second trip; the first was 4 years ago. On our first trip we had a room in the 'courtyard' which was so dark that we had to leave all the lights on all day. This trip we opted to stay in a gulf-facing room up front which is over the parking lot but does allow you to see across the street to the ocean. If you stay up front you have to be okay with traffic noise day and night, and guests coming and going.

The room was very clean and well cared for. We did have to pay extra to have housekeeping come in each day to tidy up the room and leave fresh towels. You can opt not to have them come in if you're not opposed to doing laundry on your vacation, since that's the only way you can get fresh towels without the additional fee. Since our last visit they have opened a cafe downstairs where you can get breakfast/lunch/dinner to take out. We had breakfast there one day and weren't bowled over by it but it is convenient. Fortunately the unit we were in had a kitchenette so we were able to bring food/coffee in for the week. The room is comfortable but not lavish. This is a basic place to sleep/eat/shower. I haven't been to any other hotels/inns on the island so I don't have a point of comparison but Tortuga does appear, at least from the outside, to be one of the better ones. The week we were there they were building a new pergola on their private beach so it was very noisy with lots of sawing and hammering, but it's hard to fault them for upgrading. The staff is congenial and very helpful.

Anna Maria Island is a lovely, laid-back place where many people walk and ride bikes to get around. There's also a free trolley that runs up and down the main street so you can hop on and off to get to restaurants/attractions/stores. I love the feel of the island. It's slow, relaxed, and there are many good restaurants to choose from, most of which you can walk to from Tortuga. We will definitely go back to AMI but if we end up at Tortuga next time we'll probably see about getting a room in the back, facing the inter-coastal waterway. I imagine it's much more quiet on that side.

Room Tip: Rooms in the front face the gulf but are on the street so there's traffic noise. Rooms in the ba...

My husband and I stayed at Tortuga Beach Resort on Anna Maria Island, FL in February (2013) and had a wonderful time. The room was cozy and had a luxurious bathroom (very modern and very roomy); the hotel was super clean; the piool area very lovely and the best is your are right across the street from one of the most beautiful beaches in Florida. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will return again.

February 2013 brought us to the Tortuga Inn for a short 5 days. Our first impression was absolutely amazing! From the check in staff, to the room, to the maintenance staff to the overall property appearance was impressive every day we were there! We had a 2 bdrm condo in the North Palm building which was immaculate. The pool was so warm that my 80 year old parents loved going swimming (even in February!) The short walk to the beach was great exercise for my parents and they could go over there on their own. Traffic always stopped for them to cross. Sunsets were simply amazing! The trolley stop was right by Tortuga Inn. Staff was always available for questions and there was always someone cleaning to make the property spotless. The condo was spacious and so clean. The guests we met were so friendly and even everyone on the island we met seemed very friendly. We will definitely come back and hope to stay longer next time.

Tortuga was a great place! Walk across the street to the beach which was as white sand as it could be. Room(two bedroom) was amazing! Pool in the back was really nice. We had a screened in balcony also which over looked the water and it was very nice.

Room Tip: Two bedroom in back was awesome!

the only reason I hesitate to write this review is because this gem of a beach resort will become so popular that I will no longer be able to get a reservation. The location is great and the facility is awesome. As a good friend of my said, "this is the cleanest hotel room I have ever stayed in".
Kudos to your staff who have maintained this standard on each of my many visits.

We stayed in a Deluxe 1Bed/1 Bath Bayside apartment for 4 nights in mid February. The modern unit was beautifully furnished with a large screened porch and view of the bay. There was large kitchen (with adjoining laundry room). The dining room & living room furniture was lovely with lots of beautiful pictures on the walls. The bathroom had a large jacuzzi tub, separate toilet & shower area, double sinks and walk-in closet. We enjoyed the beach area across the street and there were always lots of chairs. It was fun to watch the pelicans diving into the water and the beautiful sunsets. You can walk for miles either way on the beach. The Tortuga is building a new pavilion structure/access at the beach which looks like it will be nice when complete. The building noise was not an issue. The bedroom in our unit looked lovely and had windows facing the bay ... but we found the King size bed to be very uncomfortable and squeaky with just the slightest movement. This was unexpected considering how updated and well maintained the whole complex is. We also noticed the traffic noise from the bridge while sitting on the lovely balcony. This resort is within 15 minute walking distance from Bridge Street and several wonderful restaurants. Our favourites were the Beach House and Island Creperie.
