Always a great stay. Third time to stay here over the years. Always immaculately clean. Friendly staff. Everything you would want for a relaxing stay at Anna Maria. Even got to see some dolphins from the beach a couple of days.

I hesitate to write this review because I selfishly don't want everyone going to Mainsail. I want to keep it for myself. What a perfect location--steps from the Gulf. And what a lovely condo. We had 1A which had a spacious patio 30 steps from the Gulf. The condo itself has three bedrooms and three baths and was very lovely...

This was my second year in a row and it was the perfect place to stay. The price was reasonable, the place was very clean and the location on the beach is awesome! My family enjoyed the beach and sunsets daily. I would definitely stay here again!
