“Best pic for island chilling”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2014 via mobile

Without a doubt the best value on the island for accomodations! Friendly staff and quaint cottage rooms. Great view!! My dad stays here every time he comes down, can't say enough good things about this place!

We spent 5 lovely days at the Cedar Cove Resort in AMI. We were thrilled with the beach proximity, and the cleanliness of the facility. The room we stayed in, the Mango Room, did not face the beach but was in a beach-front building. When we booked in October we were told it was one of only 2 rooms that allowed fewer than a 7 night stay, but when we checked in we were offered a beach front room for $250 more. We declined, as we felt what we paid for the room was high enough already. The beds are comfortable, and the room was immaculate. Just know if you're staying there, don't expect "chain" hotel amenities. The room can be cleaned and new linens put in each day, but one must ask. It was, frankly, nice to be left alone on our own schedule rather than have to get out of the room each morning at a set time. In other words, you can get as little or as much service as you'd like.
The kitchenette is very handy to save money on meals and to supply leisurely breakfasts and lunches.
The staff was helpful in finding things like an extra fan, and the resort had plenty of beach chairs, umbrellas, coolers and they supplied lovely thick beach towels as well.
One drawback to the Mango room is that the AC is apparently connected to the room next door. Our neighbors must have been packing meat because they kept the compressor running day and night and our room was pretty doggone cold. When we inquired about it they showed us how to shut the vents between the rooms. I'd suggest they have those shut unless otherwise asked!
Wifi was unfortunately VERY spotty. We thought perhaps it was our electronics but we found it was a common complaint. Don't come expecting to complete laptop work that requires wifi.
Definitely ask for a room on the beach side of the highway. All in all we had a wonderful break from this cold northern winter!

Room Tip: definitely get a room on the beach side of the highway, especially if you have little kids.

Due to the good reviews we arrived with great expectations. Unfortunately, these were not quite met.
The rooms were spectacular, not really clean and you could hear next door and down the neighbors.
The rates are generally very high on Anna Maria Iceland, but does the ratio for other hotels more.
It is nice that the guest option is to use the grill and water toys and beach chairs / seating on the beach are also plentiful.
The towel service was very fast in demand, kitchenware was also available.
The private terrace with seating was very comfortable.

The beautiful beach and the interesting island have indeed saved the week, but the Cedar Cove we would not go back.
Too bad, because Anna Maria Iceland is really wonderful!

My wife and I stayed in the Palm Penthouse for a week and it was everything we hoped for. Beautiful view of the gulf from our patio; walk down the steps from our suite (it is on the third floor,no elevator) and we were steps from the beach. The suite had a full kitchen, living room, dining room, bedroom and 2 baths. On Gulf Drive there is a free shuttle that takes you from one end of the island to other so our rental car was pretty much unused for the bulk of the week. The staff was very helpful at check in and in answering any questions we had.

We stayed at Cedar Cove Resort for a quick one night stay at the beach. Not sure what we were getting into by booking online, we were pleasantly surprised to find Cedar Cove Resort very clean, casual & comfortable resort. We were three cousins looking to spend a relaxing day at the beach. We arrived early and Jeff was very friendly and accommodating. He let us hang out at the beach till our room was ready. His recommendations were spot on for dinner & breakfast. The resort is directly on a beautiful white sandy beach with lounge chairs, hammock & tiki hut grill area. They also provided coolers & umbrellas for use on the beach. We will definitely come back and stay at this resort in the future.

Many thanks to Jeff and Eric for making our stay at Cedar Cove so enjoyable. The room was clean and bright and just steps to the sand. The beach chairs were appreciated as we spent several evenings relaxing on the gulf sand. The recommendations for dining were right on the money, as we enjoyed each restaurant we went to. The people are part of what makes Cedar Cove so nice, as they went out of their way to make our stay relaxing. We recommend Cedar Cove for a great beach experience. Comfortable, friendly and well-located. In a word, terrific!

Had to move once during 3 night stay because of late booking during busy spring break time. First room was huge but noisy neighbors (staying at an adjacent home). Crossing the street was a challenge but drivers would often stop for you. Next room was above office so no ocean view, but it is only steps away to get to the beach. The staff is cordial and helpful with questions about activities and restaurants The rooms are very bright and clean. It is an older property but seems to be well kept. There are chairs, toys and other equipment for the beach as well as grill s for guests to use. Trolley was close by and made it easy to leave the car parked at the resort.
We liked the laid back vibe, as some other reviewers have mentioned.

Room Tip: Rooms facing beach would be quier - and have the view!
