“Absolutely Amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 April 2010

What a wonderful place to stay. The sand, beach and the facilities were amazing. I have never relaxed this much as I did at Cedar Cove. In the evenings we grilled and sat under the Tiki hut and had a wonderful romatic dinner. Our accommadations were great. - Thank you Cedar Cove for an amazing vacation.

My sister and I stayed for a week at Cedar Cove Resort & Cottages on Anna Maria Island with her children (7 and 10 years old). We had an absolutely lovely cottage right on the beach, we could walk right out of our room and watch the sunset over the ocean. The location was perfect. Besides a beautiful backdrop, the resort was quiet, well-kept and the staff was extremely accommodating. If we needed something and couldn't run to the grocery store, they tried their very best to get it to us. The staff was very helpful when we needed to do a little business on our trip, printing or mailing things. On Tuesday they had free margaritas for an hour and they crowned my sister Queen of the Week! One woman per unit is eligible for this and she got it, which meant she got a gift certificate for dinner at The Sandbar, one of the hottest restaurants on the island, and a free massage - worth $100. On Thursday they hosted a lovely evening of live music and beer right on the beach where we grilled out and ate family style (everyone brought a dish for dinner). It really made us feel at home and we didn't even want to have to think about leaving. We would love to come back to Cedar Cove again because it was a great time and exactly what we needed - a nice relaxing week at a little home away from home.

We searched and researched a place that would be on the beach and perfect for Easter Weekend at Holmes Beach, FL. Of the many choices, we chose Cedar Cove for it's convenience and charm. We knew from their website exactly what was offered regarding room choses.

To our pleasant surprise, Cedar Cove was more than we expected AND we will return again and again. It has an Old Flordia atmoshere, which we loved. The beach is incredibly private, clean and beautiful. We have traveled to most beaches in Flordia and the Carolinas and this beats them all. They even provide beach chairs, Tiki huts with picnic tables, hamocks, gliders, outdoor gas and charcoal grills, outdoor showers, etc., etc.

The Cedar Cove staff hospitality not only welcomes you as you get out of the car, but continues throughout the stay.

Holmes Beach has many places to eat from 4-star to "down home" restaurants. Holmes Beach even offers breakfast every morning at the Public Beach.

AND you talk about clean! - This place is immaculate (and we're the last of the clean freaks). Let us add, the beach was quiet and peaceful, so this is a compliment to Cedar Cove's location and atmosphere.

Our 9 year old granddaugher has traveled with us many times from average to 4-star resorts that include all types of amenities. Yesterday, she said, "Grandma and Grandpa, of all the places we have gone together, this is by far the best place you have stayed. Can we come back?" We asked her if she missed a pool and she said "Why when we have this private beach to ourselves?" What more can we say? We plan to stay everytime we are in the area.

Thanks Cedar Cove for making our Easter weekend a time to remember!

Jim and Pat

I stayed with my husband and 15 year old daughter for 8 days over our spring break. We made this trip after having to cancel a ski trip.

Overall, we liked the resort and its friendliness and amenities. We weren't seeking luxury, we wanted something quiet, right on the beach. Anna Maria Island fulfilled all that. Cedar Cove is a small resort and has a choice of old-Florida style cottages and more modern condos, some facing the road, some facing a courtyard, and some facing the beach. All are ground level or 2nd story (one or two 3rd story units).

When we booked we had a choice of a cottage on the road side of the resort, or a 2nd story condo facing the beach with a balcony. Knowing what traffic is like in Florida on any main road, even a relatively quiet road as runs past the resort, I knew I wanted complete quiet to sleep. We made the right choice. I talked to a couple from Maine that had a cottage on the road and even without real night life in the immediate area, they said they heard more traffic than they wanted at night.

We liked that they had many beach chairs and chaises, and provided beach towels. There was live music, singer with guitar, on Thursday night and a drawing for queen of the Cove on Tuesday with margaritas. The gardens and courtyard are very pretty. They provide literature about the island and businesses and Jeff and Eric can make good recommendations.

We didn't like the plastic covers on the mattresses, under the sheet, although I can understand the purpose for them. The exhaust fan in the bathroom was wired to the light switch, so with our 15 year old in the bathroom for lengthy periods the noise was a bit grating.

We found several very good restaurants (Banana Cabana, Le Creperie, great ice cream at Joe's Eats & Sweets). Loved that I could walk up the beach in 10 min. to Publix grocery store. Even walked back from Banana Cabana one night after 8:30 in about 1/2 hour; felt very safe. If you don't want to walk, the trolley is free and convenient and you don't have to find parking.

If you like kayaking do go on a tour with Almost Heaven; it's the one recommended by Eric & Jeff, too. My daughter and I did the mangrove tunnels tour.

I love this place and you will too. This is one of the most romantic resorts we have ever stayed at. The white sand beach at your door when you awake each morning to the sound of waves and birds in flight, is so soothing and puts you in the mood for special days and nights ahead. When you stay at Cedar Cove Resort, you will not be disappointed. We have been making this our special destination for 9 years.

We stayed in the Flamingo unit which looked out at the beautiful garden and the Gulf of Mexico. If sunset walks on the beach, playing in the sand and surf is what you are looking for then Cedar Cove Resort is the place to be.... Romantically Fantastic is how we would describe our experience at Cedar Cove. Everyone, especially couples should have the opportunity to experience Cedar Cove Resort and Cottages, a memory that will remain etched in our hearts forever!

We absolutely loved our stay Cedar Cove. The room was beautifully dcorated, clean, crisp and everything was fresh with plenty of clean towels and linens. We stayed in a 2 bedroom with a beautiful master bath, including jacuzzi tub, a full kitchen with a chefs island, living room, dining room and exquisite views. The service was perfect, including towels provided on our hammocks on the beach, plenty of beachfront chairs and loungers, tiki huts, white sand and blue water. We will undoubtedly be back to this spot again and agin for more island fun in the sun. The manager(s) were very attentive and came by to check on their guests on the beach which is something so unexpected in service. It was a true Island Paradise stay.
