Reviewed 24 August 2009

Ten of us stayed in 3 different rooms at the Cedar Cove Resort for 5 days without one complaint. All of the rooms were just right for us. The views were great. The evenings under the "Nut House" oh so memorable and the last night grilling hot dogs on the grills the Resort provides while watching the sunset was the icing on the cake. Both Jeff and Eric were so friendly and accomodating. All 10 of us hated to leave!

Never having vacationed or stayed on anna marie island, we were extremely pleased with the cedar cove resort and their excellent staff. My family and I stayed for 21 days and wished it were longer. Great beach, beautiful clear warm waters and the rooms were immaculate. The staff go's all out in making sure your vacation turns out the way you want it to. Went to Mexico 6 times, this place is better. We'll be back.

What a welcome. Chocolate covered strawberries and the next day Eric dropped off flowers for the ladies> The beach was spectacular and the hospitality equal. The only negative would be that we stayed in the older part of the compound and it was a little worn. The room was very clean, but looking behind the closets and in the louvers and Eric needs to hire a little better cleaning team. Saw the new wing and realized thats where we will stay next time we are there and we will be bacK!

We at Cedar Cove Resort and Cottages appreciate the input of our guests and thank this guest very much for their review.

We have a total of three different themes to our Resort, opulent, spectacular gulf front suites, on the beach gulf view suites, and our Key West Style Cottages. There are many reviews on line of our suites and each one of our guests has different tastes and expectations of there dream lodging. It is our goal to offer our guests the best accommodation for their wants and desires. Unfortunately due to an overwhelming demand from our guests we stay full almost year round which is unheard of in today's economy and we are very humbled by that fact, this impedes us from offering perhaps the best suite for our guests needs. Many guests once they arrive will make a reservation for sometime off in the future just to guarantee there room selection. Over 70% of all our guests are returning guests.



One third of our select guests seek out accommodations that are one-story bungalows or cottages that have that old Florida theme. These are rooms, which you may remember from your childhood. We have purposely left this theme in place which is reminiscent of a bygone era from the 60s 70s. Clean, gracious, quaint and beachy, no marble tops, no sub zero fridges, no Jacuzzi, no frills, just clean and perfect for you and your family.



It should be noted the largest newspaper in United States recommends us and the writer of the article loved our older theme and decided to stay in a vintage suite. We’ve hosted a sitting presidential cabinet member and they also loved our older theme. It just depends on your particular expectations. Many Islands in our great state are unfortunately (in our opinion) blotted and overwhelmed with high rises and condos all up and down the beach I’m sure you’ve seen them or stayed in them. Our Islands claim to fame is just the opposite. Its just an old Florida way of life which is slow and easy, simply unpretentious.



If you want opulence we certainly have it, if you wish a Key West Style Cottage we have it. We will always make every effort to please our guests, that is our undaunting task.

We always ask each guest on check in “ if there is anything you need while your here please ask us right away after all our job is to make you relax and unwind”. We just wish that when this guest had a concern they had brought it to our attention immediately so we could have taken steps to remedy this particular situation.


Our house keeping staff is well aware of the meticulous nature of their supervisor and each room is cross-checked several times before a guests occupies it. Obviously we overlooked something and we will take corrective actions immediately.

The Resort was just as nice as I expected it to be. We stayed in the Dolphin Room a cute 2 bedroom right by the beach it was great, and exceptionally clean. We had shopped quite a few resorts and found this to be the best value on the Island .

I must say the grounds are magnificent, with a profusion of orchids, flowers and birds. The dolphins are very close and our host Jeff joked and said it was part of the dolphin show they put on every afternoon between 2 and 4 pm. Mostly we walked the beach, which was pretty empty we felt as if we were on Gilligan’s island come to think of it my wife’s name is Maryanne. Fishing is a big activity here and next time we will do it. A four-person catamaran charted for 2 ½ hours was $140.00 pretty cheap I thought.

When we come back to the Island this where we will definitely stay. We used to get a kick out of trying different places. The older I get all I want is a great room, clean, and a good location and this resort has it all.

Happy and Content and missing it.

Loved every minute of our stay on Anna Maria Island and Cedar Cove Resort; a week just wasn't long enough. I love my new friend Eric the Innkeeper. Thanks Cedar Cover Resort "Relaxation Specialist". I wish I was there now watching that glorious sunset with my toes in the sand.

Cedar Cove is friendly and fun with a beautiful beach. The provide beach chairs too. Be selective about where you stay though. We stayed in an older unit with a view of the parking lot, a noisy window air conditioner, and a patio that you couldn't really enjoy because of the A/C unit making all the noise. The patio also was right next to the laundry area. It was definitely in need of updating. The bedroom with the 2 double beds just had a sliding accordian type door that closed with a magnet and the master bedroom had a noisy A/C. The bathroom was small and the shower always seemed clogged and would fill up with water. If staying at Cedar Cove, choose a unit with a beach view in the front of the complex. I have heard they are newer.
