Great location right on the beach and just a 5 minute walk to St John's Pass with a great selection of bars and restaurants. The cleaning arrangements for the room were a bit unexpected in that it didn't get cleaned, but this wasn't a problem during our short stay. Towels, toiletries etc. are changed daily on request. Would definitely visit...

Excellent location on beach, near to John's pass village and boardwalk just 5 minute walk away. The hotel room has everything you could need and the pool is an added bonus. Lovely early morning stroll on beach meant we encountered some dolphins playing just off shore. Will definately stay here again.

I was a little apprehensive about this stay. Old places on the beach often aren't exciting. THIS PLACE WAS FABULOUS!! Newly renovated rooms, impeccable cleanliness, a staff focused on customer service and a terriffic location where everyting was accessible by foot. If you are looking for a luxury resort, this isn't the place for you. If you want a small...

My 18 year old daughter and I returned last week from Barefoot Hotel. We both thought the hotel was what we expected it to be. I like that it didn't have the hotel feel to it but more like a condo set up. The rooms were very clean and it was nice to have a fridge and microwave to have...

Just returned to uk from a week here, june 2014. Location was great, on a quiet section of a lovely beach yet only 5 min walk (either along road or beach) to johns pass which is a boardwalk filled with restaurants, bars, gift shops, ice cream parlours, boat trips (dolphin watching and fishing), watersports etc. Small pool but never overly...

We chose a gulf view room and it was exactly what we were looking for. The hotel itself is not very large which kept it quiet and comfortable. The pool was average in size and well maintained. A gas grill is on site for your use. Tables with tiki umbrellas are located on the property between the parking lot and...

Must say the location on the beach is great. I think the rooms are a bit below average. They need a deep cleaning. The rooms also seemed dark. We had a beach front room, but it did not seem that way. So this place is okay, but I would choose to to stay somewhere else if I am in the...

We are not picky people, but wanted a beach front hotel this time. The location of this hotel was great. We were on the beach and walking distance from a great tourist area called John's Pass. Staff was very friendly. No daily room service, but if you needed clean towels or sheets you put basket out your door. This was...

The room was well worth it, very clean. Being right on the beach and within walking distance to John's pass was excellent too! We flew into Florida and couldn't bring our beach gear. Luckily there was an area where other beach goers had donated some beach gear for the others to use. I would stay there again and I would...

Check in: Wonderful. The gentlemen checking us in was quick, friendly and informative. He gave us the complete rundown of the hotel and gave us some information on points of interest near by. The room: Average. There was mold around the baseboards in the bathroom, dust on top of fixtures and some of the cutlery was a little dirty. Although...
