My wife and I had a great weekend stay at BBR. We live locally in Sarasota but felt like we were far from home once we settled in. Our unit was clean and very welcoming and we really enjoyed the simple, rustic décor. The staff was very welcoming and although there were plenty of activities within walking/trolley distance we really...

We stayed in Bungalow 116. The room was beautiful and the view was breathtaking. The staff was very nice. The room was equipped with everything we needed with a full kitchen and an outdoor grilling area. There are toys and floats for the kids out on the beach. We look forward to staying there again next year with our daughter....

While this property has way more charm and character than anything surrounding it, we just experienced too many issues to rate it any higher than average. The bungalow look and feel is very cool, and talk about being right on the beach....No elevators, no commercial look or feel and a very "island" look make it a unique place to stay....

When I saw the pictures on the website, my first thought was how charming this resort is. When we arrived, we stayed in bungalow 115 with the "shabby chic" décor. I thought it was very quaint, a little expensive, but worth the money for 4 people. No it wasn't the cleanest unit, there was dust, the floor needed cleaning and...

Priceless setting with beach right outside the front door however, room 116 was extremely dusty, dirty and cheesy.Dust caked from the wood beams and cob webs too. The mattress sank in the middle and had to be very, very old. The drape panels did not completely cover the windows when closed. No housekeeping while we stayed. We left early. Just...

The BBR is a true treasure hidden on Bradenton Beach. Each bungalow is different from the rest with it's own character and charm. When arriving and leaving the staff is very helpful and welcoming. No phone in the room is a big plus. Cell phone service can be on and off, they can leave a message. We have stayed in...

We stayed here this past weekend for a girl's getaway. It was mellow and relaxing ( but they had great recommendations for live music and a great night out when we felt like a bit more of a party scene). In addition, it was a great deal for a place steps from the beach (they even honored a AAA discount...

We just returned from our family vacation and can't stop bragging on this place!!! We booked 3 bungalos and each one was just amazing!

The beds were so comfy, the ladies...

We stayed here in April just at the back end of the winter storm so it was still quite windy. We chose a room on the beach and it was perfect for what we wanted. You could sit on your patio and watch the sun go down into the sea, fantastic. Only problem being all the other people from the...
