Pirate’s Pointe Resort is situated on 2 acres on the Little Manatee River and is just minutes to the beautiful open waters of Tampa Bay and the Gulf of Mexico.

Great Group Destination

5 on June 09, 2013

Pirates Pointe Resort is an oasis in the middle of Ruskin, Florida (less then an hour south of Tampa). There are a variety of cottages - ranging from studios (one of which has a rooftop patio with a great view of the river) - one bedrooms - two bedrooms - and then "The House" !!! The house has a variety of configurations - hence - a great group destination. It can be anything from a 1 bedroom to a 5 bedroom. They will tell that the "5th" bedroom is in the "great room", which is true, BUT, there are 2 other living rooms, 2 kitchens, 3 bathrooms, and - best of all - every bedroom has privacy - meaning everyone can get to a bathroom, kitchen, and even outside without walking by someone sleeping. When we went we only put 4 couples in the house because we didn't want anybody sleeping in the living room. We had no idea of the layout. So, figure on 4 bedrooms and the "great room" has 2 murphy beds and a couch for the kids (or another couple). Oh, and did I mention the private pool in the back ? It's accessible from the great room and one of the bedrooms. The resort also has a large pool for all the guests and a huge covered pavillion for party throwing. They offer catering and boating/fishing trips. Check out their website. Don't expect an all-inclusive resort and spa. This is a quaint gem on the beautiful Little Manatee River. We brought our boats, kayaks and even a paddle board. The only thing we didn't like about our stay was that it was too short ! One last, but very IMPORTANT thing. This happened to some of the people in our group, if you look the place up on-line your computer may send you straight to a travel website, and this website may show Pirates as having "NO AVAILABILITY". Don't believe this ! We almost didn't go there because of this, luckily we called them anyway and they told us that these travel sites don't have access to Pirates' booking info. so plan on just reaching the resort directly, either by phone or on-line. Then go there ... relax ... enjoy !

The unit we stayed at was great!! It had a full kitchen with all you need to cook with. It also had a 12 cup coffee maker which is great for anyone who drinks coffee. The room was spacious and very clean. we were very impressed and will definately return as repeat customers. Thanky you Jonathon and Haley for everything!!!!!

Don't stay here...

The grounds were not kept up. There is no where to fish unless you have a boat. They don't rent boats or sell bait. The patio was unkept and the porch furniture was torn. The cottage was very small. There was 1 tv, that only got a few channels. The bathroom was a disaster. The shower did not function properly. You have to go through a bad neighborhood to get to the so called "resort." This is not a resort, far from it. There is absolutely nothing to do there. It is not a "Premier Fishing Resort."

This place was perfect for my husband & I to get away for some R&R. We will be back & can't wait. Beautiful rooms, lush landscaping, amazing time on the water.

Awesome Accomodations!!!

We loved our stay at Pirate's Pointe - I would not change a thing! Our room was comfortable and clean, the dock space was great! The pool area was inviting and fun!

Nice place and different than usual B&Bs

This is a neat fishing resort with a really pretty swimming pool and river dock. Our studio had a full kitchen so would be great for an extended stay. Breakfast is NOT at the B&B but we got gift certificates to a close, local restaurant which was a good meal.
