My husband booked the Rod and Reel as a surprise 20th Wedding Anniversary trip for the two of us. I can’t begin to describe how absolutely awesome this resort is, so clean and just immaculate. The amenities are just out of this world. Perfect for a family trip….We are already planning another trip to this resort at the end of May! And maybe back for our winter trip in December.
The resort was quiet and private….can’t wait to get back.
The staff was outstanding!!!

Beautiful new resort on old footprint! Great location on Anna Maria Island…..first class amenities.
Loved spending the week with you. Fritz and Susie are special hosts.

Break from the Canadian Cold - ()


We enjoyed walking the white powder beach at Bean Point, riding our bikes around the island and stopping for a home made donut at The Donut Experiment on Pine Ave. The resort is beautiful & immaculately maintained! It’s quiet within the resort – you can be private or interact socially with the other guests. We enjoyed our host/manager Fritz immensely as well as Tyler – both were very accommodating. Had the most beautiful weather 🏝 wish we were back!!

Wow ! What a great spot to escape the world. Suzette did an exceptional job with the décor in each room. The attention to detail on the grounds and rooms is well done. Everything is exceptionally clean and well kept. The rooms are spacious and well equipped. The bed was extremely comfy. With cooking options in your room and on site BBQ’s you do not even have to leave if you do not want to. The pool and spa area is spacious and inviting. The beach is white sand and excellent for swimming and beachcombing. Lots of sea life we were fortunate to see Manatees, Rays, Dolphins and a wide variety of other fish. The on site bikes get you over to Bean Point (Amazing Sunsets) in minutes or down to Pine avenue to the General Store for snacks treats and libations. The intimacy of the resort lets you get to know other travelers staying as well. The group staying at the same time were great and we shared many drinks and dinners. Also lots of dining options close by. Oops almost forgot on site Kayaks, paddle boards and ping pong for use any time. Highly recommend this resort!! Cheers !
