John's Pass and Village Boardwalk
Dolphin Marine Rentals
We booked a room with a balcony and the view of the ocean was great. The room was very clean, and to our surprise had a pretty nice kitchenette. The beach was not crowded at all, which was very nice. The resort fee included daily free kayak or paddle board rental, which we took advantage of everyday with no wait. It also included free beach chairs, but we brought our own so we could have saved on room in the car had we known beforehand. Overall, we had a great experience and would definitely recommend The Bilmar to anyone looking to enjoying Treasure Island. The only negative thing about our stay was that our room was not ready for us to check in until about 4:40, and check in was at 4:00. Not a big deal since we were able to hang out by the pool while we waited.
We booked our room and we're charged but when we arrived there were no rooms available and I still have not received my refund...which did put us on a bind that was 500 dollars that we didn't have for the rest of our trip...very sissappoints
I loved everything!!! You walk out of the hotel and you're on the beach! The beach bar (Flipper's) had some great drinks, and featured live music too! The kitchen also had an amazing menu (we ordered coconut shrimp, chicken quesadillas, and fish tacos-all delicious)!!! The rooms are spacious, with a small fridge, microwave, and cabinet storage. Some rooms have a balcony so you can step out and smell the gulf breeze! And the beds are super comfortable, for a good night's rest! And then there's the staff... Always willing to give suggestions, of things to do, provide maps or call car services to get you there... And generally showing that they are interested and cared! Want to save a little money, there's a full grocery store across the street, liquor store too (and another a half mile down the street)! We didn't even need a car rental, having taken a $30 Uber from the Tampa airport! Want to splurge a little? There's lots of great bars and drink specials up and down the beach... Everything a short beach (or sidewalk) walk away! Level 11 is a great stop to watch the sunset, with delicious appetizers, good service and a view that no one else on the beach offers! This stay was priced so economically, that we were hesitant upon arrival, but on departure, determined that we'd definitely be back! This is a highly recommend place to stay!!! You can enjoy a lot of the benefits of other hotels in the area bars, restaurants, music, etc., But staying here saves a good deal of money making it a most- economical choice!!! The only downfall, and it's a very minor one, was the water pressure in the room could have been a bit stronger! That's it!
The staff were amazing. That's the only positive. Overall, the amount of money I spent for a 2 night stay had me feeling ripped off. The place is tired & dated. Not worth it.
Ideal for families. So much to do and such a beautiful location. Something for everyone. Food was pricey, but to be expected.
The location on the beach was great! Staff were not attentive to guests even though occupancy was low.
The Beach and easy access. Bongos is the best and wait staff at Bongos is outstanding!!! Food is wonderful! Spinners has always been a favorite of my family's, all visiting relatives have always taken trips up there for the view. All employees were friendly from top to bottom, very professional, fun and energetic. The breakfast buffet went up in price and should at least include orange juice which was 3.50 for a glass. I assumed a beverage such as juice would have been included. The elevators are slow and more computers or a private room with computers would be nice, like the Serata has, which requires a room key for access and has 4 computers, a business center. The gym is low rate and some machines are off balance on the floor. Seems unused and unkept.
The hotel itself was nice. Not a lot of parking. The room was nicely decorated but the floor seemed like it hadn't been washed in months. We had a great view with a nice balcony but you couldn't sit out there unless you wanted to get blasted with the heat from the air conditioner. The air conditioner that didn't cool the room lower than 73 and would shut off at night which did not make for comfortable sleeping. The 11th floor rooftop lounge was nice. We had really good service and delicious martinis. Bongos has a cool atmosphere but the food and service were horrible and it was very expensive.
View and location to beach, several pools / beach bars / restaurants on site A little busier than expected with families this time of year, but no big deal
The beach The fact I got in my room an hour after they said I could. I had to call to get my room cleaned after 4 days of no room service
The beds were very comfortable. The staff went out of their way to make our stay a good one. The atmosphere was very pleasant and very enjoyable. All around a very wonderful place to stay. I didn't have any issues with anything I didn't like.
Right next to the beach. The torched monkey bar and restaurant was always packed and fun to be at. The room wasn't as described. Was described as a 2 bedroom suite. It was more of a family sweet. There was no common area for sitting. You walk into room with 2 queens and go through to a door going to a room with small kitchen and another bed. It wasn't ideal for a group of friends. Couldn't leave the room without going through where the other couple was sleeping. I had expressed my concern with front desk who was unconcerned and very rude telling me I don't know what I'm talking about. Basically telling me it was to late they had my money and was nothing I could do about it. I thought the rooms were bismal and the employees I encountered there were very rude and unwilling to help you.
The property was clean & bright. Right on the beach! The pool was beautiful and there were lots of other things to do onsite, as well.
Right on the beach.... clean, friendly,and really good bars auond to drink at They didn't have a pool side bar...
The location was great. There is a trolley that you can take to all the beaches and sites. no
Great location, it was a place to sleep that was pretty much clean. It had a nice pool. The refrigerator in our room was newer and clean. The stove, oven, and microwave were not up to par- we did not cook in them. No maid service at all even though the reservation says there is. Towels every three days is crazy. I had one somewhat warm shower all week and there is no water pressure.
Such a nice staff!. Right across the street from the beach and a cute tropical pool area. Walking distance to the beach bars and dining. Comfortable room with a full kitchen. Quiet at night. It's an older hotel with a few wrinkles, but the plusses make that easy to overlook.
Not too far from the beach, easy access location, free wi-fi and on site parking. All and all the place was not too not bad...definitely nice and quiet. Room is quite dated, circa 1960s, kinda like staying in grand ma's spare bedroom. Also I became painfully aware that there is a difference between Beach front (ad photos) and beach access (shoes req). foremost strictly adhere to the check in at 3pm policy
