The resort was originally built in 1948, this historic accommodation sits on some of the most prime real estate Anna Maria Island has to offer. Adjacent to the popular Rod and Reel Pier and Restaurant, the private Rod and Reel Resort will offer guests and larger groups an unparalleled all-inclusive vacation experience. Complete with spectacular panorama waterfront views and the evening lights of the distant Sunshine Bridge, guests can enjoy every amenity imaginable in this pristine and exclusive tropical resort paradise. This luxurious suite offers accommodations for two guests. It features a full kitchen and a full bathroom with a shower done in marble, television, wifi, and fantastically beautiful finishes and décor throughout. The outside area of Rod and Reel Resort offers a tropical oasis for guests to enjoy. Lounge by the pool, play ping pong, go kayaking, or hang out at the bar – this amazing resort offers it all! The truth is, most guests will find it hard to leave the comfort and amenities found right here at the resort. If relaxation is your priority, then grab a book and enjoy the incredible panoramic views from the rooftop terrace or claim a chaise in the shade of the Tiki. Fun for all ages can be had in the refreshing and crystal clear water of the large and inviting private pool or dip in the Gulf water at the resort beach. The spa has space for multiple families and is the perfect spot to unwind after a fun island day and share adventures and laughter. When it is big game day, there is no need to leave the comforts and convenience of the resort; simply reserve your seat in front of the large outdoor television and fireplace located in the gazebo or sit poolside along the counter bar. Hours of outdoor activities can be enjoyed at the beach, stone ping-pong table, shuffleboard and corn hole courts, or while exploring the canals and Gulf from one of our guest paddle boards or kayaks.
And only a few steps away, resort guests will enjoy the very best fishing the island has to offer on the neighboring Rod and Reel Pier, or one can simply enjoy the action of area fishermen from a dining table at the Pier Restaurant and bar. The beautiful and famous white sandy beaches of secluded Bean Pointe and beyond, begin at the Rod and Reel Resort and follow the sun to the Gulf of Mexico. Whether you desire to fill your pockets with shells or take an easy beach jog, you can do either directly from our doorstep. Enjoy a leisurely stroll to the state park located just down the street or grab a complimentary bike to explore the many Pine Avenue boutiques or refreshing ice cream and waterfront dining venues. An Anna Maria group vacation unlike any other the island has to offer, awaits guests at The Rod and Reel Resort. We look forward to hosting your memorable large family, group or special event vacation week.
