My wife and I have stayed at this hotel twice for a week each time and have never been let down. This hotel is literally ON the beach. As soon as you step off the elevator, it's 20 feet to beautiful white sand, and about 200 yards from the Gulf. The hotel may not look like much on the outside, but rooms are beautiful! Each room is connected by a breezeway and the hotel is wrapped around a very nice pool area. The rooms are updated, have LCD televions, and a kitchen area with microwave, fridge, wash area, and dishes. The hotel staff is extremely friendly and full of information for the area. The section of beach that Barefoot sits on is clean, has rentable beach furniture, and plenty of space to sunbathe and swim. The rates aren't bad at all, especially for a beachfront hotel on Madeira Beach. There is plenty of soundproofing; I never heard anyone next to or above me being on the bottom floor.
The hotel is also about 1/4 mile from John's Pass tourist area and walkable at all times of the day and night. Go down, visit some of the great eateries, have some drinks, and not worry about driving anywhere. This hotel is also about 5-10 minutes from a Publix so you can buy food and bring it back for the week if you don't want to eat out, and it's a 5 minute drive from one of the nicest Waffle Houses I've ever been to (not that it says much but I love breakfast food.)
Were there some things I didn't like? Of course, but nothing that will take away rating from this place. The parking is extremely tight and under the hotel which sits up on stilts and make sure when you go in the water during stingray spawning season, you shuffle shuffle shuffle your feet. I was stung by one and they are no frickin joke and it's a long ride to the hospital. Overall.. I will go back again, and again, and probably again.
