1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 February 2013

When we arrived at Cedar Cove, it looked shabby from the outside, but sometimes thats not the whole story. We were booked into one of the penthouse suites. That meant that we had to lug our bags up 3 flights of extremely rickety wooden stairs. When we walked into the room, the first thing that I noticed was piles of dirt in all the corners, so I opened the pantry. The shelves were covered with dirt. The stove was covered in grease. To be fair, they refunded our money right away, but I would not recommend this resort if you care about cleanliness.

When Jeff cheerfully showed us to the Coral Reef suite, my first reaction was dismay. It was a tiny, low-ceilinged, cottage-y, sparsely furnished unit unlike any other accomodation we've stayed at in Florida. BUT as we settled in, we began to feel more and more comfortable. Everying was adequate and very clean. Soon we were really enjoying our patio, surrounded by plantings and flowers, and the garden as we walked the few steps directly out to the beach. We cooked just fine in the tiny kitchen and ate all our meals on the patio which was more lovely than any restaurant. We walked on the beach and sat for hours in the Tiki hut or the chairs in the "yard", listening to quiet music. Soon we were in love with Cedar Cove and felt "at home" in Coral Reef. Our suite was bordered by the small parking lot and everyone going to the beach walked by it. But it was surprisingly un-busy and the tall plants gave us some privacy. We often had the "yard" to ourselves. Everything was quiet by 10:00! We bought groceries at Publix and fish at the Star Fish Market (you aren't allowed to cook fish in your unit, but need to do it on the grills in the yard). The free trolley was a plus, and we took it all around the island from the City Pier to Leffis Key. When we return we will try to book a suite in the front building or the upstairs of the garden building even though that would mean climbing stairs; actually we really enjoyed just strolling out of our door, through the garden, to the beach and back and forth for more coffee.

Room Tip: Do good research on where your unit is located. Some are right on the beach, some are across the str...

My wife and I had a fantastic time staying at Cedar Cove. We stayed at the Bamboo Suite and enjoyed our private deck and view of the Gulf of Mexico. The room was clean and the bed firm and comfortable. We cooked much in the kitchen and there was plenty of pots and skillets. Jeff is a great host and is there to help without being intrusive. It was our second trip to Cedar Cove and hopefully not our last.

Room Tip: Recommend staying on the Gulf side. I am sure the rooms are nice across the street but paying a lit...

We just got home and had to write this. My wife and I have stayed at many different hotels and or resorts for business. Our room was the cleanest we have ever had, our towels were changed daily and the housekeepers were so cheerful. You can tell they enjoy there work.

This was our first trip to the Island, we checked out several other places and chose Cedar Cove due to its rating on Trip Advisor. We were not disappointed, the beach is manicured and the garden reminded me of Disney. The staff is very friendley and the price was right.

My husband and I have been to Cedar Cove Resort 4 times now. We are hooked just like so many other guests that we ran into. It turns out I ran into a friend from High School that has been staying there for years what a small world.

The lady that runs the Resort Adrienne is just a gem we cant say enough about her. She gave us such great shopping hints like going down to Historical Bridge Street a must if you like shopping and cool things to do. We stayed in the Mimosa Cottage it was very clean and had everything we needed. There beach is extremely large with chairs and cabanas.

The trolley was fun to its free and the pick up is in front of the Resort. I should mention Eric and Jeff they were at the front desk and also very nice. Oh I forgot my husband that loves to grill was in heaven they have webbers and gas grilles I had him cooking every night he loved it.

Thanks Adrienne, Jeff and Eric keep up the good work

Room Tip: They have free Ice coolers for the beach you don't have to buy any.

They are located in the center of Anna Maria Island this Resort is somewhat of a hidden gem. It is located approximately 20 minutes away from Sarasota International airport. We made our reservation with Eric who was very helpful, we later found out he is a minister. The property has been extremely well maintained and features many different types of rooms. It seems to be catering to the needs of vacationers from all over the world we heard all types of accents. The Resort features a mix of standard, suite-like rooms and Cottages, we got a chance to see several before we had to unfortunatley leaveand weloved them all.

The suite we stayed in was clean and of a good size. The room featured a nice balcony with a view of the gulf. High Speed internet is complimentary and worked fine during our stay. They had beach chairs, grilles, beach towels and they even supplied free beach coolers, how cool is that. We also had to use the sofabed during the stay which I found to be surprisingly comfortable (sofabed, especially hotel ones are know to be notoriously uncomfortable).

This Resort is extremely good value for the leisure traveller/family for week-end stays or holidays There are many restaurants nearby, as well as one Publix market. It is a fairly central and convenient base for anything. We made our reservations to come back in June to renew our vows with Reverend Eric (what I nice man). Jeff was also very nice he helped us with just about everything we needed.

Cant wait to get back to my Dream Vacation spot

PS check out there Tiki Hut Beach Bar, guests will play bartender and I must say spent quite a bit of time there.

Room Tip: They do very intimate weddings we got to see one and they did a really nice job. It was catered ther...

Spent several nights in the Orchid Cotage over the holidays it was fantastic - very central location - we just parked the car when we arrived left it there, everything was in walking distance. My wife said she had the best time ever.
Our room was great and very clean and really was not in there all that much. A great touch was they left a bottle of champagne for our anniversary,

All the staff was very friendly and helpful, they are right on the beach with lots of beach chairs.

Keep up the good work, Josh

Room Tip: Ask Jeff for some great Island tips..he helped us quite a bit
