... doesn't sponsor their own festivities as a large resort complex, Callaway Gardens, is nearby. The resort offers a variety of activities from a butterfly center to a treetop zip-line adventure. But the 4th activities centered around a sprawling white sand beach. Many were swimming, others were picnicking. While we were waiting for the evening's fireworks show, we were entertained by various bands. Also ...

Departure Day

... got up to get a closer view when the horned looking chum peeled out of a crack and darted under the hood of the stove. Here came Jessica out of the bedroom unbelieving what I witnessed. The Gecko peaked out from under the range so Jessica could be proven by his beady eyes. Both of us were mainly finished packing but we would need to bypass the lizard to get to the bathroom to get the rest of our stuff. We walked past numerous lizards outside ...

... Kathe’s restaurant. It was a full size statue of a fisherman pulling in fish netting. It served as a memorial to the fishermen of Cortez and also the veterans of this diminutive fishing village. Behind the statue lay a historical marker adorned with the history of Cortez. After reading the sign I walked further down the road to the U.S. Coast Guard’s gates and peered through to catch a glimpse of the bay, which seemed to be busy with ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Bilmar Beach Resort Treasure Island

    Fabulous - Would do it again in a Heatbeat

    from

    My mom and I travel to the Gulf Coast of Florida yearly and stayed at the Bilmar for the first time last October, 2003. We stayed in an efficiency located on the 4th floor.

    Better than expected

    from

    I am a travel agent and my husband and I stayed at the Bilmar for 3 nights in December. We originally had reservations for a 2 night stay but decided to extend it for our last night rather than drive to Cocoa Beach like we originally planned. We had an oceanfront efficiency on the fourth floor in the tower. We loved our room. We had a great view of the ocean and the sunset. We enjoyed Sloppy Joe's, especially when it was warm enough to eat outside. We didn't use the pool at all, but it was small. It was a great location, the Bilmar is located only 20 minutes south of Clearwater and 10 minutes north of St. Petersburg. The front desk staff were not the friendliness of people, but the view was well worth their lacking smiles. The beach is very wide and you can walk for miles. We found a lot of nice shells, even a few conchs (some alive and one empty one). All in all, we had a very nice stay at the Bilmar. I would definetly return and recommend this hotel to my clients who are looking for a value hotel on the beach.

    Week end

    from

    don't get the rooms in the middle bld --no balcony!--the other gulf front rooms have one & its worth it --it is a little crowded but beach resorts are squeezed in nowadys.view was beautiful --mattresss were not very good --needed replaced. staff was very friendly & let me change rooms to a balcony.l

    Spent a lot of money to go- got pneumonia

    from

    Went to Bilmar Christmastime 2002-while there,contracted pneumonia; told Bilmar; thet set me up with a "doctor" that informed me they did not take any health insurance (I have blue cross of Mich .) They told me $350-400.00 for hotel visit plus medicine; also, if pneumonia, they would need a chestx-ray, also not covered. I said forget it, I will go to my own doctor in Mich., hopefully I wont die before I get back-the "doctor" on the phone said "your choice"-and promptly hung up on me!!! Now, I know that Bilmar is not responsible for me getting sick,but from Saturday, when I talked to that "doctor", to Monday morni ng, when I was due to come back to Michigan, NOT ONCE did the staff at bilmar check on me to see if I was alive or dead; I was bedridden from Saturday until Monday Morning, I contacted Expedia, suggested it wuold be nice if I could get a partial reimbursement for my shabby treatment, said they werent authorized to give refunds, E-mailed the parent Co. of Bilmar, with the same request, to this day I have not heard a word from the parent company of Bilmar; to be honest, I never expected to! That was my first trip to Florida, It was also my last, I had an all-around lousy time!!!

    Don't do it!

    from

    Not sure if I qualify to write a complete review as we bolted after being shown 2 rooms and being appalled by both of them. The pool areas are small and one pool had orange construction fencing around it. Both rooms looked like something straight out of Pulp Fiction. Awful, OLD and smelly. Sloppy Joe's is a nice place but the rest of the hotel had better shape up! Really - Im not all that fussy but COME ON!

    Run, Quick!

    from

    Run, Quick. This place is awful. The elvators here smell of dead fish the windows leak so much that when it rains the carpet becomes so wet it splashes when you walk over it. Free HBO as advertised, where? The bathroom is covered in mold. Windows in the bathroom in an outside hallway, give me a break. Heated pools? With what, ice cubes. They even charge for local calls. How about flipping a mattress every now and then. Remember that water I told you about? Well don't try to adjust he controls on the air conditioner while thats present, what a shock. One final bit of advise. DO NOT STAY HERE! RUN, QUICK.

    Hated it !

    from

    Stayed at the Bilmar for a week in July. Had I known what I was in store for, I would have only stayed one night. The elevators are not ventilated in any manner. If one was to break down, the people inside would probably die. I kept the air conditioner on high the entire time, and the room was still too hot. Their brochure said they offered free HBO. They did not have HBO, as the desk clerk informed me, because they were having trouble with the cable company. They did however have pay-per-view movies, which the desk clerk suggested. I, however did not partake in these, since I was meerly looking for what the brochure had promised. They, also, did not have the hot tub that was advertised.

    We had a blast!

    from

    we stayed at the bilmar beach resort this weekend and had a fabulous time. We were upgraded to a suite due to overbooking and it was more than we had hoped for. The room service was great, the restaurant "Sloppy Joes" in the resort served good food and drinks. Overall we had a great time and are looking forward to going back.

    Great for the price!

    from

    Get your best rates online, fantastic value for the area. Convenient to shopping, groceries, tourist traps. Lots of Euro tourists, great people to shoot he s---t with. Fantastic sunsets on the beach.

    Very bad experience

    from

    My husband, I, and 3 children had a 3nt stay pkg at this hotel. The room they put us in was old and dark. We had a full kitchen.The cabinets were metal and rusted along w/the cabinets in the bathroom. I did not want to put my cloth in any drawers. There were ants on the floor. When I told the front desk they seemed not to care and said they could give me some ant killer. We asked if we could look at another room and they all looked that way. We left the next morning and stayed at the Ramada two doors down, much better.

    This place is very old, needs alot of remodeling
