There is a big change on Anna Maria Island. The island’s only full-service resort opened last week amid a great deal of fan-fare!
Known as the Waterline Resort and Beach Club, the hotel has the Marriott family name “Autograph Collection Hotel. As many of the “locals” know, there isn’t much more room for building on the island and this hotel may be the last of its kind on Anna Maria.
The 37-room hotel has all the top of the line amenities. Each unit is two-bedroom and there is a full-service restaurant on the premises. There is a 50-slip marina which will certainly bring in a lot of the boaters! 10 of the slips are free so you can tie up and enjoy the new restaurant, Eliza Ann’s.
The hotel has the charm of Old Florida. Each room has its own fully-equipped gourmet kitchen, complimentary high speed wi-fi, with private balconies and magnificent views. There is an exclusive beach club where you can rent kayaks and paddleboards.
