This resort is brand new and the location is fabulous. It's not on the beach and you do have to either drive or walk a few blocks to get to the beach but the other amenities make up for it! Fabulous rooms with kitchens and living rooms. They have the option of having 2 bedrooms which is nice if you have a large family! The pool is great and you can have a fabulous Bloody Mary or the Key Lime Pie martinis lined with graham cracker crust! The snapper is excellent choice if you like seafood. I would not recommend the caesar salad as they use fish roe and has a very strong smell of fish! You can walk a few blocks and find a few other amazing restaurants! You can come by boat and park for the day too! Great addition to our paradise on Anna Maria Island!

Room Tip: Get a room overlooking the pool and marina!

Just returned from our stay at the Waterline. We enjoyed the island very much and the hotel rooms are new, condo-style, typical of a vacation club property. There is a nice workout room as well and a small pool. However, I have a mixed reaction overall. Our room had an annoying electrical problem which was not addressed during our stay although it was reported. Housekeeping did not replenish our washcloths and dish clothes. (They said they were out.) Also, as other reviewers have noted, customer service, particularly in response to Marriott members, is spotty. The 'beach club' is a shuttle to their sister property where you must pay for chairs, umbrellas, and any recreational equipment. There is no pool at beach location (only at the hotel), nor food options beachside. They have a condo room available to allow you to cool off as well as store any food you bring in the refrigerator, which we did appreciate. There is supposed to be cold water for guests but while there, the water carafe was not refilled so our group could not quench their thirst in the 95 degree heat. The beach club attendant seemed inconvenienced when we arrived and complained aloud, which was awkward.There is a garden hose to wash your feet before going back to the hotel. The beach area is narrow and crowded due to other resorts in the area. If you have a car, my recommendation is to skip this 'beach club' and seek other less crowded beaches on the island (we liked Coquina), or on Longboat Key (loved rustic Whitney Beach). You can rent beach equipment across the street from the Waterline very reasonably. For comparison, the cost for 3 days of rental chairs, umbrellas, cooler and a boogie board was less than what we spent at the Waterline "Beach Club" for two hours. We recommend eating next door at "Eat Here" or drive a little further north to the "Waterfront". We did report issues to the hotel front desk but received no response. If returning to the island, I would carefully weigh this option if not paying a reduced rate as there are several really nice vacation home/condo rentals with pools, close proximity to the beach, lots of space, kitchen amenities, etc. Many are within walking distance to dining establishments and include beach equipment in their rental rates. The Waterline should look towards distinguishing itself from these options. Something to consider for the future as we do plan to return to Anna Maria Island.

Room Tip: Bay view is not worth extra charge

Hello roadlesstraveld,

Thank you for your extremely detailed review! We're glad you found the details of our Two-Bedroom Suite appealing throughout the resort. We aim to provide an Old Florida experience, connecting you to lifelong memories with loved ones and nature. It is unfortunate to hear that you had an electrical problem, didn't get the items requested from housekeeping or having a chance to enjoy the beach club and we do apologize for any inconveniences caused. We do replenish our wellness water daily and offer beach side food service from a 'New York' style deli which is delivered to you and reasonably priced or you have the option of placing a 'Waterline curated cooler' order at the resort that is prepared by our executive chef the day/night before 6pm. We are glad you had a chance to enjoy other parts of Anna Maria Island as it is much to do like jet skiing and snorkeling besides the recreation activities and rentals that we offer.

We hope to see you again soon so we could offer you the excellent service you deserve!

Thanks, Sandy

Thank you so much to the team at Waterline Marina Resort. Every staff member we interacted with went above and beyond to make us feel welcome and at home. We definitely appreciated the complimentary shuttle service to the beach club at the sister property. It was nice to have a space to grab some infused water and beach towels or just hang out in the AC for a moment. The guest rooms are spacious and have all the conveniences of home - including much appreciated washer/dryer and a fridge with filtered water. Fun trip and great service - hope to come back with the family!

My husband and I decided to spend our 38th Anniversary on Anna Maria Island and chose the Waterline Marina Resort based on the reviews, which turned out to be a perfect choice! From the moment Nicole checked us in, we felt our stress melt away. The 2 bedroom suite was gorgeous and accommodated the other family members that accompanied us with ease and afforded privacy for us all. Gregory and Nicole went above and beyond with their thoughtfulness and attention to detail - even arranging an extra anniversary surprise to help us celebrate! The staff called us by name at each encounter, making us feel as if we were VIP guests. Kara also was a joy with her cheerful demeanor and willingness to help make our stay memorable and perfect. The first night we noticed that the TV in the master bedroom wasn’t working, but it was fixed immediately with apologies. The location of Waterline was perfect for us and our family and we cannot wait to bring the rest of our family to this wonderful resort!

Stayed: June 2018
