37th Anniversary getaway

4.8 on August 21, 2017

We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend. Beautiful facility and gorgeous gulf water


right on a Beautiful Beach!

4.6 on December 25, 2016

Traveling alone, I felt safe at this cozy, friendly property. It sits right ON A BEAUTIFUL BEACH which meant morning walks, evening sunsets and a nearby beach-side restaurant within walking distance. The fire pit, barbeque grills, heated pool, friendly staff, lovely decor in the bungalow and December Christmas decorations made an impression on me.


We love Bungalow Beach Resort!

Old Florida

I grew up in Florida in the days before high rise hotels. Bungalow Beach resort took me back to the laid back days of old Florida beaches. The room was fantastic, very clean and had a great view of the gulf. Dining at the local restaurants was always satisfying. Highly recommend the stay.


Our favorite place to stay...a true sanctuary

5 on August 22, 2013

Our 3rd, and definitely not our last, visit to Bungalow Beach. We've stayed in 3 different bungalows and each time we are soooo very pleased. Our 4 year old has been there twice now, first as a newborn and second as a 4 year old and was it amazing. He loves it there just as much as we do!!! Between the beach and the pool and your bungalow right between each...what else can you ask for! The restaurants on the island are also amazing! Too many great bites to list! Enjoy!

Step off your covered lanai onto one of Florida's nicest gulf beaches. Our bungalow was very clean and beach decor was adorable. We will definitely return.

It was are first stay at this resort but I would stay again.


Great Hide-Away Hotel

4.2 on February 24, 2013

Terrific location, clean, neat bungalows on the beach. Wonderful visit. Could have sat on the beach chairs forever.


Awesome...we'll be back!

5 on December 15, 2012

We stayed there for 2 nights in early December 2012. The location/view/room...spectacular. Not fancy or pretentious...just relaxing and wonderful. We walked down the beach to dinner and breakfast. Gayle the owner could NOT have been nicer. Had the best restaurant meal I've ever experienced 5 min. away at Beach Bistro. We had a fire in their firepit both nights. Awesome. Great little pool to cool off. Only suggestion would be a firmer mattress but otherwise absolutely no complaints. We'll definately be back!
