    Exceptional, nice, clean, fun hotel on the water

    All of the staff were amazing at this hotel - they multi-tasked and nothing was ever too much effort - they were all absolutely wonderful from the cleaning staff, to the kitchen, the bar, the restaurant and the front desk! Andy at the bar always has everyone having a fun time, and even although it was incredibly busy one night, she was always cool and engaging with every customer! The whole staff were welcoming and looking out for the fun of the guests - exceptional experience!

    Extremely Clean!

    In an era that we currently live in during covid the hotel was EXTREMELY CLEAN! The staff were wiping tables and chairs down constantly, me and my family felt very safe.

    Love other Margaritavilles but not this one

    We have stayed in other Margaritavilles and loved them. I had booked another place but after reading reviews I canceled it and chose the Compass Hotel. Right from the start we had issues. I called at 2:50pm to ask about early check in and I was told yes we will advise housekeeping. We arrived at 3:15 and I was told they were in our room cleaning it. At 4:00pm which is regular check in I was told that it wasn't ready but would be soon. I was told that there is an employee shortage and they don't have enough staff. Why didn't they tell me before this? When I called I was at the beach and if they had told me this I would have stayed at the beach. At 4:30 I was told it would be ready in 30 minutes or less. At 5:09 our room was ready. Other people were checking in with no problem. When we went to the room it was hot. We left and thought it would cool down but it did not. We had to call the front desk and they sent maintenance. He reset it but it was loud all night. On the positive side the beds are comfy and the bathroom is spacious with a walk in shower. The pool is nice but it is only open 10:00am-8pm. You have to get the pool towels from the front desk. The breakfast is good but it wasn't very hot. I know with the pandemic things are just getting back to normal but I was expecting that it would be better by now. The manager did waive the $14 resort fee for the late check in but only after I complained several times. I won't be back here again.

    Great Stay

    Great location to get over and hit the beaches on Anna Maria Island! The hotel had a great, relaxed vibe. They could use some towel hangers for hand towels and more shelves to put hygene items in the shower, but those are minor details. Staff was very friendly.

    Bath room not too comfortable for persons with limitations, not necessarily handicapped. Toilet too low. Personnel was very courteous and tried to be as helpful as possible. Amenities were ok.

    Accessible rooms NOT

    We were in a accessible room but the shower was not accessible for my husband who is in a wheelchair the shower was a tub/ shower combo With no shower chair . They also argue over getting us a shower until we pointed out that on there own website the advertise that the will provide a shower chair . The shower came on the last night of a 3 night stay . They need to fix this problem if they are going to advertise accessible Rooms
