The Compass-Margaritaville hotel at Anna Maria Sound was very nice. It is a new hotel next to a marina with sufficient amenities. Our room was spacious and clean. The view from our room overlooking the marina and the sound provided for an awesome evening sunset. The staff are professional and friendly. Kelsie at the front desk was awesome as was Dawn, who cheerfully served our complimentary hot breakfast each day. The location is very convenient and you drive to Publix and many stores and restaurants in just a few minutes. My wife and I enjoyed our stay and highly recommend it.

The property & staff was wonderful. Noah at the front desk was great. The downfall was they do not clean your room during your stay due to Covid (???). (We stayed 6 nights and had to ask for fresh towels every day). We stayed at this resort because the website said that a trolley came to the front of the hotel. We did not purchase a rental vehicle because we thought we had transportation. There is NOT a trolley that runs in front of the hotel, it is a city bus that comes every 20 min. This was not convenient as it ended up being a 20 minute ride just to the beach. Even though the resort was wonderful, would not stay again due to proximity of beach, restaurants etc..

Yes, the only mode of transportation that comes to the front of the hotel would be the Monkey Bus, Uber or Lyft. I'm sorry you didn't enjoy the stay! We can't typically have housekeeping in rooms because of Covid unless there's a specific time and day set aside for that. If there's anything to be done or any help needed to improve the stay, you can always notify the front desk for any thing.

I have stayed at other Margaritavilles and the service just wasn’t the stay. I understand the hotel was full. Our bathroom was dirty and we waited an hour after check in time to get our room. The bay was beautiful.
