I always enjoy my stays at Gem Coast Inn. The staff is always accommodating to the guest needs. The improvements to the Inn are wonderful. I feel right at home when visiting friends in Englewood. Awesome Place.

We travelled across from Miami through Alligator Alley armed with our trusty Samsung Notepad looking for places to stay based on Trip Advisor ratings and affordability. Whilst working our way up the coast to St Petersburg we found this place which has stayed with us ever since and is definitely on the list of places we'd like to go back...

This is the second time we have been to the Seafarer. We just happened to find it when we went to Manasota Key to find some sharks teeth. What a find! It's practically on top of the beach! We stayed in Unit #1 the first time and it is the closest to the beach with amazing sunset views. This time,...

Well, the Seafarer is not the newest, or most luxurious place we've ever stayed. But you know what? It didn't matter. It is relaxing and beautiful and quirky. We love it there, and if someone told me I could live there for ever, I would. It's right NEXT to the beach! I mean, you come out of your door and...

If you want a commercial feel where you are catered to constantly and can get room service, this is not the place for you. If you want a retreat for a weekend (or week) and want to lose yourself in the wonder that is Englewood Beach for a time, this is it. I've stayed at an Inn up the road...

My husband & I stayed here for 3 nights, and it went by too fast! The location is awesome, with beautiful sunsets & lots of shark's teeth! Very quiet. If you are looking for night life, this is not the place for you. The peacefulness is what we were looking for! Will be back. Make sure you bring beach towels...

This is an out of the way tiny resort that is so awesome. Don't come here expecting the normal amenity filled hotel chain kind of experience. This is simplicity done right. Clean well maintained rooms, comfortable furniture, patios overlooking the water, a heated pool and steps to the gulf. Fantastic!! Bring a few things for breakfast &/or lunch, stock the...

The location is great, but price is a bit high for squeaky twin beds and lumpy pull out sofa! The weekend staff was a bit hovering...not the way it use to be a few years ago ...but it was clean and right on the beach.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Seafarer Beach Resort is an adult only beachfront resort located in Englewood, Florida. The Seafarer facility spans the width of the long, narrow barrier island of Manasota Key, offering both bay and beach access.

Manasota Key is Southwest Florida's best kept secret. There are no high-rises, no crowds, no condos, and no traffic lights, just a two-lane road and pristine beaches. ... more   less
