We returned to the Cedar Cove following a wonderful first visit. It is beautiful place to unwind and relax with an unpretentious,old school Florida vibe. The staff is extremely friendly and eager to make your stay a great experience. The beachfront location is truly spectacular.

Room tip: Beachfront has great views
Date of stay: February 2018
Trip type: Travelled as a couple

Cedar Cove was the PERFECT spot for our girls trip! The location is ideal---- centrally located on Anna Maria Island, with grocery, drug store, coffee shops, Etc within walking distance and an extremely friendly and accommodating staff, spotlessly clean rooms and a view of the beach that is simply stunning! We absolutely loved our room with the kitchenette, where we could prepare breakfast or lunches Beachside, and even enjoy a bottle of wine right from our room while watching sunsets that are National Geographic Worthy! This quaint Beachside Resort is just the ticket for a peaceful and relaxing respite away from the rest of the world, breathing in Salt Air and sunshine and leaving the stresses behind you! We love it here so much, we will most certainly be back! As a matter of fact we have rebooked two additional stays for this coming summer :-) thank you to Eric and your staff for making our visit so special! We love it here! See you soon :-) Pat and KK

My husband and I just stayed here last week. It was probably the best get away week we've ever had! The Palm Penthouse was beautiful, the staff was warm and wonderful and the beach was picture perfect. And, by that I mean it is exactly as their photos show it! Being right on the beach with free chairs, towels and umbrellas and not fighting a crowed public beach was really great. Thanks to Eric and his entire staff. We'll go back!

Room tip: The top floor had the most beautiful views!

As with any review it is subjective so just some observations.
Maintenance and updating is needed. The stairs and deck to the Bird Of Paradise suite is in poor condition. Can you say slivers!!! the wood is beyond it's life span and in some places rotted.
The layout is odd overall, the large ocean front suite building ruins the whole character and is out of place.
The furnishings are a mix of decades, some were OK, the others need to go! time to update and replace!
The tiki huts on the beach are dated and dark. No vibe! Waste of good beach space.
The beach, great!! not crowded, can move chairs wherever you like, just bring them back.
The staff was very pleasant. Some of the best I have encountered in my many travels.
The majority of the visitors are over 60. With that said its a very quite place. If that is what you like then it's for you.
If you are looking for more updated facilities, or a livelier atmosphere then this is not for you.
I thought the value was not there. Kind of pricey for what you got.
I would not call this a resort. I would also give it a 2 star rating.
With that said, I didn't hate it but I was a little disappointed. It was not for us. Too sleepy, to dated to $$$ for what you got.

Room tip: Do not get a bottom floor room, they are dark! They are also a cottage and not a hotel room

Thank you for your comments and we are glad that you enjoyed your stay. Sorry for the slivers, yes some wood steps do have splinters and we are sorry if that caused you any discomfort. I have been here for quite a few years and you are the first guest to comment on the layout of the property, so I don’t quite know how to answer you. Many people are thrilled that we are on the beach.

As far as the furnishings go – we purchase all of our furniture from a very high end furniture store, we are sorry that you did not like the new “Tommy Bahama” couch and table. Being on an island we try to keep the “island theme”.

Again your comment about our Caribbean style tiki huts - no one has ever made a negative comment amount them. They are used by many as a gathering place for families and guests to eat dinner or relax and get out of the sun. As far as age goes, we don’t discriminate on age, many of our guests are all vets like myself and we appreciate there service…but again I have never heard a comment like that. We have many younger families that stay with us also.

If we weren’t your vibe perhaps South Beach or Panama City might be better for you. Our little charming Island has been mentioned in Better Home and Garden, Southern Living, and many more main stream periodicals. Our Islands claim to fame is its “Old Florida” with 2018 amenities. This is Florida with no hi rises, no chain hotels with a very beautiful environment and sugar white sand beaches.

Our staff is well trained from all over the world and we do treat our guest the best.

If you visit our sleepy little Island we call Anna Maria please stop in and see us agin we would enjoy hosting you again.

Eric

This was our fourth trip to Anna Maria Island. Our Mimosa Cottage was spacious and and attractive, although right on busy Gulf Drive. The beach is very attractive. The host was engaging. The resort is close to shopping and an easy drive to Longboat Key and Sarasota. There are many different types of accommodations within the resort.

Room tip: Choose a room away from Gulf Drive
