My family recently stayed at the Barefoot Bay resort when we went to Florida. It is very close to the beach, and we did not have to worry about walking through a lot of traffic. The motel is simple in design, and it is family owned. The rooms are quaint, and we were very comfortable the week that we stayed there. I enjoyed the heated pool because I could jump in the water without wading in inch by inch like I have done with some pools. The motel is located to several shopping centers and restaurants. My husband enjoyed walking to the pier each morning to fish.
One of the relaxing things that we did at the hotel was sit on our private balcony and watch the sunset. It was a fabulous view, and we took many pictures. My children liked the playground. We have not seen a playground at the hotels we have stayed at in the past, so this was a welcome surprise. We had my parents with us, so we stayed in the apartment that the motel has. It is exactly like an apartment you would live in, but it was near the beach. The kitchen was very nice, and we did not have to leave the room for meals except a few times that we wanted to get seafood. There were three beds in the room, and the couch folded out into another bed. My parents liked the living room area because they could watch the news in the mornings without waking us up.
The price for the apartment was very affordable for a week, and my family felt at home. There was enough light from the large windows, and the door opened directly to the parking area. There are other rooms in at the Barefoot Bay Resort that are smaller but that offer the same amenities. A housekeeper came by each morning and made sure we had everything we needed. All of the televisions in the rooms are the same size. The decorations in many of the rooms have a Mexican feel to them. The comforters and rugs are blues, reds and browns.
The Barefoot Bay Resort is located near several attractions that are great for families. We visited the Clearwater Aquarium and saw the dolphins. We also ventured out on a pirate cruise. This was a fun experience for my son, but I liked it as well because the boat makes you feel like you are on a real pirate ship.
