Like every other child, our daughter had seen the movie Dolphin Tale 1 & 2 and kept asking to go see the tail-less dolphin, Winter, in Clearwater, Florida. We finally went. Barefoot Bay was close to Winter as well as the ocean and many restaurants and shops. We loved the trip and the resort. People were very nice and accommodating.

We enjoyed staying at Barefoot Bay and Resort. It was clean, but a little outdated. I really enjoyed being next to the boats and within walking distance of places to eat and the beach. We did not like the 27 day canceling policy. We also did not like being asked to use our towels twice, before getting clean ones.

Thank you for your feedback the cancellation policy is 21 days and has not changed since making the reservation. We have daily housekeeping and towels are changed everyday if the maid sign is put out for housekeeping. You can even come down or call the office and request clean towels.

Barefoot Bay is perfectly situated with the bay on one side and a quick walk to the Gulf. They have a nice deck that overlooks a small marina and the bay which is a great...
