I was attending an event and needed a place to stay one night. Instead of a chain I decided to check out Bilmar Resort. I was impressed with how clean and nice the lobby and common area were. The staff were super friendly and very professional. We could see they were taking care of small maintenance issues in the parking area but to me this showed that they maintain their buildings. The room was clean and well stocked with all our needs such as towels and soaps, etc. There were even beach towels provided. The linens, pillowS and beds were clean and comfortable. Unfortunately due to our short stay, we didn’t get a chance to use any of the included amenities but plan to return again for a longer stay. We will be return visitors.

We checked in and where given an old musty room that had not been aired out since the Cretaceous. We asked for an ocean front room and received a cut off view with a view of an awning. The hotel restaurant “Sloppy joes” served a blackened mahi that was drenched in a seasoning then over cooked.
Needless to say we spent most of our time far away from this place during our stay.

Dear Valued Guest, I sincerely apologize your room and meal did not meet your expectations. Your experience is not typical of a stay at the Bilmar as is evident by the many positive reviews shared by other travelers. The items you have described have been shared with the appropriate team members and we will take action to remedy the issues. We truly hope you will give us a future opportunity to regain your confidence. Sincerely, Clyde Smith - General Manager

Stayed here 35 years ago treated by Grandpa. This year thought we would treat our kids and after a week at Disney felt we needed somewhere to rest our weary bones.
Wasn’t disappointed. Great room overlooking the beach, very spacious, clean and bright. Beautiful sunsets while listening to music from entertainment down below but not too late. Supermarkets nearby (Publix best for fresh fruit and veg) VIP across the road was best place to eat despite waiting for table. Johns Pass walkable but hot in the way back during the day (go via the beach)
Staff at Bilmar friendly, pools clean.
So glad we chose to stay here again. Been back for 2 weeks but still talking about our time here

The property is clean, conveniently located and the balcony view is wonderful. Both restaurants are good and the terrace bar is great to view the sunset. They have live entertainment on the weekends. We have stayed here for years.
