In 2015 I won a two night stay for the Barefoot Beach Hotel - thank you, Johns Pass Seafood Festival! I stayed at the hotel on Jan 30 and 31 of this year. As some have noted, the location is convenient and the resort is laid out nicely. The beach is gorgeous and this time of year the sunsets were...

My husband and I were just passing through and staying one night on our way to Orlando. At breakfast we decided that we really liked it here and cancelled our plans for Orlando and stayed an extra two nights here and we are so glad that we did. This hotel is located within walking distance of St. John's Pass. We...

Cute little hotel. The room had everything we needed. They have this wonderful basket system to to replenish anything you are running out of. There are excellent laundry facilities, beach towels and you can't beat the beachfront balcony for sunsets. The pool is also nice and warm in the winter. It is also right across the street from shopping and...

Very convenient with parking, pool, elevator and beach all close to each other...so we could move from one spot to the other with minimal hassle. Right on the beach with beautiful views from balcony of the beach view rooms and even the pool view rooms are not bad, you see some beach from those two (we had one of both)....

My husband and I spent 5 nights here in January 2017 on a short Florida getaway from NY. We thought it was just about perfect for our purposes and at a reasonable price. Our little suite had lanai overlooking gulf/beach. My one recommendation would be to insist on this, don't stay in room overlooking pool. Also we were on 2nd...

Paid for a two bedroom unit, which turned out to be a one bedroom and another 'bedroom' with a draw curtain for privacy. Offered a full refund but too late in the day to go searching for another 2 BR unit with kitchenette. I was vacationing with immediate family members so we were OK with the lack of privacy, but...

Barefoot Beach was a great find! Close walk to restaurants and to Johns Pass. Room was clean, free wi-fi, heated pool, beach towels available, and extremely friendly staff. The beach front rooms have an amazing view and our sunset was spectacular from our balcony! This is not a fancy hotel but was perfect for us. We will be back!

Stayed here for convenience, close to the beach (on) and close to the airport. Had a great few days relaxing here. Reception very friendly and helpful, room was large, clean and quiet. We had pool view, not the best, but could still see the beach and also getting there was only a 2 minute walk. Hotel offers pool towels and...

We chose this Hotel because of all the great reviews and honestly ...did someone get paid to write those? We had a second floor room with view to the beach. No complaints on the view. Immediately upon walking in the mildew odor hit my face. The bathroom was moldy, tiles were cracked....ugh it just needed some serious upkeep.

I believe you meant to leave this review for the Barefoot Condos. I say this because we have only 1 BBQ grill, we do have picnic tables and we do have an elevator. I'm happy you enjoyed your stay in the area. I will let them know. -Aaron H.
