We were looking for a place to relax that was right on the beach. We did not want to be dragging a wagon back and forth across the street every time we went to and from the beach. The Bali Hai fit the bill with their own waterfront property on a beautiful, less than crowded beach. They have umbrellas and chairs available on a first come basis and parking right by the rooms. It is definitely worth it to ask for the beachfront rooms as opposed to the courtyard. The view can't be beat. The rooms are spacious but a little tired but you are not here to stay in the room, you will be at the beach. Dave and Al were very easy to deal with and if we visit Holmes Beach again the Bali Hai is where we will stay.

Room Tip: Get the beachfront room! It is well worth the few extra bucks.

Very happy to have found this resort. It is an older property but well maintained, clean and spacious, and right on the beach. This is one of the properties that is still owner maintained and managed with that personal touch. Very relaxing compared to many other overcrowded and overbuilt areas in the Gulf. Can't wait to go back.

Room Tip: First floor has a patio area and second floor has a balcony.

We stayed here Jan 22-25, 2014 and couldn't have had a better time. Anna Maria is beautiful and the location of Bali Hai can't be beat.
Like most of Anna Maria, Bali Hai is a quiet, quaint and very clean place. If you're looking for "National Chain" hotels, restaurants, shopping and 24/7 stimulation; Anna Maria is not for you. If you're looking to unwind on un-crowded white sand beaches in a picturesque residential atmosphere, then Ann Maria is for you.
Our room was on the 2nd floor and faced the pool/courtyard--Great view of pool and palms. The unit is a one bedroom with full kitchen, bath and living room---lots of storage. The units are very clean, somewhat retro (think “the Golden Girls meets the Brady Bunch”), but very well kept, neat as a pin, and stocked with all the essentials.
The trolley picks up right on the corner by resort and will take all the way to Longboat Key and everywhere in-between. The village of Anna Maria or Holmes Beach is a nice walk from resort. Good food at the “Sandbar” and great shelling from there- along the North Shore (Turtle Point) of Island at low tide.
We will definitely be back as Anna Maria and Bali Hai are awesome places.

Island tip: Once on the island- stay on the island- you can get caught in a lot of traffic in Bradenton or Sarasota when the draw bridges are all up-

We loved our stay here. Very reasonable condo right on the beach for an affordable price/weekly rate. Anna Maria Island is a gem and there is no end to the relaxing that can be done in this little piece of paradise. Located in a wonderful, quiet neighborhood of 50s-style beach houses. Don't hesitate to book a week or more here. There will be no regrets.

Room Tip: Nearly every room faces the beach. Worth the upgrade to get beachfront, though.
