“"Perfect Thanksgiving"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 December 2013

Just got back home from a Thanksgiving weekend with our best friends. Stayed in the Sandcastle Penthouse. View from our deck was spectacular. Eric and Jeff and staff could not have been more accommodating. They have excellent choices of rooms and suites. We have stayed in three different rooms and suites and all were very nice. Great place for family and friends. We walked the beach to breakfast and dinner all three days. Cannot get a better central location for hospitality services. A short drive to events in Bradenton Beach, Anna Maria and Long Boat Key and beyond. Have stayed in other locations in Anna Maria and Bradenton Beach, Cedar Cove is our favorite.. Florida Gulf Coast at it's best!

Room Tip: Have stayed in three different building locations. All have certain charms. If a Gulf view tops your...

Wife, son, and myself stayed here three nights in October in the Flamingo suite. It’s a one bedroom suite, but probably more like a studio since there isn’t much of a separation between bedroom, kitchen, and living room. The bathroom and shower are really small but with all that said, it’s really nice and clean. There is a large semi private porch, shared with the suite next door but separated by landscaping, that you can see the ocean from. The property is very “old Florida”. No frills but very nice and relaxing. There are two large tiki huts at the base of the waterfront building that you can site under and enjoy a meal or drinks. Also, there are a couple hammocks as well as plenty of lounge chairs and beach toys to bring down to the beach. The beach is amazing as you would expect and at times it felt like we had the whole ocean to ourselves. There are two nice gas grills that can be used instead of cooking in the kitchen. This is a really great place for a super relaxing beach weekend. This was our first time here and can’t wait to go back.

Room Tip: Not all rooms are created equal so make sure you talk to the staff about which room your getting

The staff at Cedar Cove Resort was out of this world. Very helpful, caring and compassionate, as we were getting married at the resort. The resort was very clean. The scenery was remarkable. We can not say enough about the resort and staff. Thank you again for all your support, understanding and compassion during our stay there. You made our wedding the most romantic ever.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 October 2013

We have been at the cedar cove resort for 5 days in October 2013. First of all it is important to understand that we talk about 4 or 5 buildings which are separated by the main road.
So initally we have been foreseen to stay "on the other side of the road" which we realized after arrival only.
Talking to the manager - it was no problem to move us to the "sea side".
Finally we stayed in the "Bamboo" appartment - which was really nice! I think it is worth to mention that we dont talk about a 1st class hotel - but the room was very clean - not the newest (which we did not really mind).
We really enjoyed the stay, there is all what you need to relax. Really friendly management, nice places to eat very close, 2 mins to the amazing beach with a kind of sand we've never experienced before!!!
Maybe one message to the management... A little map on their web page, showing where the rooms really are - would make the room selection process more clear and easy for those not being there before.
We will come back next year and looking for one of the penthouses they offer.
Kind regards to the owners and Jeff as well.

Room Tip: ask for rooms within the building which is closest to the sea. they will have the best view and have...

We stayed at Cedar Cove in October 2013 as a family of four. This was our second time on Anna Maria Island.We love it here because it is so peaceful and un-commercialized. It feels very small town. Cedar Cove Resort has a great beach, plenty of seating and areas to hang out. I really liked the tiki hut, the palm trees, the outdoor showers, and the small book and magazine exchange. Booking and check in was easy, and the staff were polite and helpful. The apartment was a little on the small side, especially the kitchen, and could use some minor repairs, but since we spent most of our time on the beach, riding our bikes, or exploring the island, it really didn't matter.

We (family of 5) stayed there for 4 nights during July, 2013. The location was supreme, lots of space, well equipped accommodation (although the blinds were not working perfectly), very clean, beautiful beach, very quiet, near to highly commendable restaurants, unobtrusive management, beautiful island. Overall, a highly successful holiday!

This is our second trip to Cedar Cove. Loved it so much the first time it was on the list of favorite places to revisit for my 60th birthday. It may be a little deceiving from the road but once here it is fabulous! Everything is clean, neat, with beautiful landscaping. The best part is you have your own little window to the best sunset on the west coast. We stayed in the second floor Coconut suite. It is very spacious with a good size kitchen and living area with a balcony overlooking the beach. You don't need to go anywhere to see the sunset, set on the balcony & it's right in front of you. Be sure to stop at a grocery on the way, or Publix is just a couple of miles down the road. Stock up on snacks and adult beverages & your set!
There are not the shells on the beach as down on Sanibel, but this is a very laid back, peaceful piece of heaven.
The management is very gracious and accommodating. Book early as this gem has been discovered!

Room Tip: If possible, a room the first building off the beach. Second & third floors have the best view.
