Have been coming here for several years and we love it! Walking distance to John's Pass for shopping and good eats. Barefoot Beach has a great pool and their own private beach area - it's perfect. Make sure you visit Lisa's Cafe just down the street, this was an amazing find for breakfast, lunch and dinner! Barefoot Beach is a perfect place to come and unwind, we will definitely be back!

Horrible hotel

Posted Aug 26, 2014
Cons: More experienced and knowledgable staff. There was no attempt to apologize the following day or compensate us for the stress we endured
Location: John's Pass village
This was the worst experience at any hotel we have ever experienced. Checking in on 8/22/14, we returned to our room at 10:30 pm. deciding to take a walk on the beach. We attempted to open the door to leave it would not open, trying several times my husband climbed over the balacony to the ground and attempted to open the door from the outside. We both tried credit cards, knives to try to open the door, I from inside, my husband from outside, no success. I called the office at 10:54pm, it was after hours, left a message that we needed help. Several more calls were made, no success. I placed a call to 911, spoke with Bridgette, she stated she had 8 phone numbers to call to help us. After approx 30 minutes, Bridgette called, she had no response to their antiquated system and was sending the fire department. With the help of two fireman, one removing pins from the door from inside the room, the other on the outside to remove the doorknob and lock. The hotel maintenance personnel came to our room afterwards, put the door over the opening, placed a towel where the doorknob should be, then returned shortly and said for liability we should be moved to another room to have a door that locked and UNLOCKED. To add to the stress we then received a call from the offce, Aaron, my husband talking to him first, and he proceeded to become irrate with my husband because we called 911 and had the door removed. My husband has heart issues, recent surgery and videos were taken.

Guest get to do all the work

Posted Aug 23, 2014
Pros: Beach
Cons: Less signs on what guest need to do and more bang for the buck.
Location: Great location.
Only thing your paying for is the beach. Staff only washes your towels if you put them out in time.

Location: On the beach. Walking distance to John's Pass, restaurants and shopping.
Pleasant and convenient. They stay out of your room. You request daily towels, supplies, etc.

My wife booked this hotel after reading the reviews from previous guests. We had an ocean view. The room was clean and nice. The room also had microwave, Fridge, Iron, hair dryer. It had a pool and a gas grille on the bottom ground. Parking was good. The price for this hotel is reasonable.

Great location, right on the beach!!!!!!

We've stayed here 4 times in the past 6 years and love it! Can't beat getting up in the morning & walking right outside to the beach! Close to everything.We discovered "Screwy Louie's" for take-out breakfast, "Lisa's cafe" is in walking distance. Must visit St. John's Pass, have eaten at The Friendly Fisherman" & went to "Sculley's" to listen to music & have apps. Publix market is close by too! Would recommend Barefoot Beach to all!!

room by pool

Posted May 28, 2014
Pros: Walking distance to all
Cons: quieter a/c units
Location: close to shops,resturants,etc
If possible don't get a room by the pool. Our experience was that between 9pm and 11:30 pm it was noisy and no answer when reported to office.

Everything it was advertised!

I searched and searched for an oceanfront propert in Madeira Beach for my husband and I to go to for our 10 year anniversary. I came across many excellent reviews for Barefoot Beach Hotel, and now I see why! It was the perfect location, well supplied in the kitchenette, had friendly staff, provided beach towels and chairs at no extra cost, and even went above and beyond by printing our boarding passes for the trip home. We will absolutely stay there again if we ever travel that way again!
