My friend and I just returned from seven glorious days at The Sailfish Resort. I had been to Anna Maria Island several times , but it was my friend's first visit. It simply could not have been better. Our suite was spotless and very comfortable with abundant ammenities that really made us feel at home. The property is beautifully cared...

Our family has been going to the Outer Banks for the last 10 years and wanted to try out the Gulf for a change (and warmer water temperature). This was the best decision ever! The cottage is perfect, with all of the amenities... even those we hadn't thought of. I packed too much because practically everything is provided. The beach...

This was out first visit to the gulf of mexico, my goal in accommodation was a location with a view. An amazing view was exactly what we found. This place is literally 10 steps from the beach. If you get a gulf view room then you can watch the sun go down on the gulf from the living room. The...

To be able to step through sliding glass doors from your living room directly onto a patio that fronts right onto the white sand beach of the Gulf of Mexico is what makes Sailfish Beach Resort on Anna Maria Island a truly unique and enviable vacation destination. And to also be able to view the amazing sunsets over the Gulf...

We were very pleased with our stay at Sailfish. It was quiet and very clean. Jeanne , the manager was extremely accomodating and gave us many tips for enjoying the island. The view from our waterfront unit was outstanding and we enjoyed the patio in the mornings and evenings. We certainly would recommend the Sailfish Beach Resort to anyone looking...

A "girls" trip included my mother, who just turned 86. What a perfect place for her to be able to enjoy the beach. She could sit inside and enjoy the view or only one step down off the patio and be on that incredible sand! The accomodations were clean and attractive, with all the comforts of home. What a picturesque...

My husband and I have been to AMI many times and we've tried a different place (for lodging) on each visit. This place was fantastic! I normally like a pool, but on this trip (for our anniversary), I figured if I'm going to the beach why not be RIGHT ON THE BEACH?! I was definitely not disappointed and I can't...

After discovering Sailfish on the internet, we were sold on the simple picture of a house on the beach. The reality of finding Sailfish exactly as its portrayed was beyond delightful; it nestles neatly between larger properties and sits within the dunes as a tranquil hideaway. We spent twelve days and nights and seldom felt the need to wander too...

Sailfish was a wonderful step back in time------ a time to rest and relax! The private beach made for perfect breakfasts on the patio and then lounging on the beautiful white sand. The accommodations were terrific. It was clean and had everything on hand to give the comforts of home----without the work!
