Absolutely beautiful resort!!! Nice lots, very private, nice brick pavers, landscaping. The pool is perfect!!! The staff was so mean and nasty it took all the nice and prettiness away. An employee was very rude and down right nasty! Locking us out of the pool stating a storm (it was sunny and no clouds on the horizon). I went to use the ladies room around the corner from the pool only to return a few min later to find my purse, cell phone, medications (I am a diabetic) other belongings locked up on the pool deck!!!! I was told I could stand outside the pool area until the storm passed and wait! Since there was no clouds or storm that I could see I demanded to retrieve my belongings. Who would leave a cell phone out in the rain anyway? She was very rude and I finally got her to unlock the PADLOCK to let me get my things!!!! She then sent a man out to confront me as to what my "problem" was!!!!! My husband and I had been told the day before we could not have water or any beverages/snacks at the pool either. I am a FL resident and I think it is odd that a resort would not allow water at a pool!!!!

Needless to say, we will not be coming back. It is a shame as it is a lovely place! But I cannot stay in the sun without hydration. And I don't like the attitude either! We camped at Holiday Cove RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

We thoroughly enjoyed this campground. The sites were all private and well maintained (level too). The wifi was good. The bathrooms were nicer than our house - with tile and granite. The laundry room had a change machine and was very clean. The dryers finished our loads with one cycle.
The pool area was nice and anyone we encountered was very friendly. We camped at Holiday Cove RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We have stayed here several times and have always enjoyed our visit. We enjoy the quaint restaurants on the water and watching the fishing boats going and returning from their fishing trips. It is a small campground but very well run and upscale. We will definitely return again many times. We camped at Holiday Cove RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We stayed here in a 5th wheel for 2 months. High priced, over rated park. The site owners and regulars are not very 5th wheel friendly. 75% of the rigs here are high end Class A motor homes. Sites are all back in and tight. Palm trees are nice. There are no activities other then the seasonal guest and their cliques. We did not feel included. $1125 a month. Will not be back. We camped at Holiday Cove RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

A small, well appointed, but high priced park located just over the causeway from Bradenton Beach and the access to Anna Maria Island. Our rate was $998 for two weeks, plus tax. We stayed here over the Christmas holidays and the park was not completely full, although we were told that would change after January 1. Very competent escort to your site who has you in place in a jiffy. A mix of coaches, fivers and TTs. Comfortable paved sites (several available for sale by private owners, $100K plus), good services, though sites are close together. A small heated pool, laundry and fitness room with two exercise machines. Not a lot of walking/biking room in the park because it is so small, but we were able to go outside the gate and walk some of the local neighborhoods. Very few activities other than a meet and greet. Dogs must go into the grassy areas behind the sites and there are walkways to those areas in the corners of the park. Frankly, the web site photos make this park seem better than it really is. We would return, but would explore other parks in the area first. We camped at Holiday Cove RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Wow, hard to believe we stayed in the same park as the previous reviews. We had a premium site on the river with a nice view. Cost us $2000.00 for the month of Feb., high even for in season. Sites are pavered, but tight, especially with all the palms growing over into the patio area. Landscaped? More like a jungle. Could use some work. We were told by neighbors before we left our Naples, FL campground that this is a noisy park. Figured they meant traffic noise which we don't mind. They meant the people in the park. Campground is so close together you can hear everything your neighbors say. Very annoying. Laundry is small. There are few planned activities. Pool is nice. Some sites have been bought and are overrun with planters, dog pens, patio furniture, grills, etc. and look tacky. It is close to Anna Maria Island. It's mostly the same group of snowbirds that come down year after year. We're full time RVers, & this would never be one of our favorite parks. We camped at Holiday Cove RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Free Wi-Fi. Speedtest.net says 45 ms ping, 7.24 Mbps down and 1.66 Mbps up. I have never seen this kind of speed in but one other RV park, and it is password protected. Water pressure is 50 PSI. They use a lawn service to keep the grounds manicured. The laundry has 3 almost new commercial washers and 6 almost new commercial dryers at $1.50 per cycle. The dryer got my towels dry in one cycle. Amenities include full hook-ups; back-ins sites to handle small to large motor homes, 5th wheels, and travel trailers; landscaped paved pads and drives. I think this is one of the nicest RV park I have ever stayed in. It is about a half a mile from the Anna Maria Island where the Bradenton Beach is located and parking is free. We camped at Holiday Cove RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Beautiful campground, many sites are privately owned, several are for sale in the 100k+ range. We rented for a week, it is immaculately clean, well maintained. All sites are paved. Dog walk around the perimeter, very dog friendly. Staff was polite. Less than a mile from the gulf, lots of restaurants nearby. Reservations needed well in advance for the busy season. We'll return next year. We camped at Holiday Cove RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Very nice park, lovely campsites. Great place to walk or ride bikes, easy access to Gulf beaches. The only improvement they need is with their internet service. Pretty slow and it is easy to get kicked off, but it is better then some places we have been. We camped at Holiday Cove RV Resort in a Motorhome.

This is a great RV park. It is a half mile from the beach but is not a sand pit. It has beautiful level and paved sites. They are landscaped beautifully as well. The service is great too. They direct you to your site and even help you hook up your power and water. There is a great little breakfast place across the street called Cortez Cafe. Also, there is one of those dockside seafood restaurants about 1/4 of a mile away called Star Fish Company. Check out them both while you are here.

Great clean well kept park with paver sites and asphalt roads. Grass all around perimeter for dog run which made the dog happy. Escorted to our site. Close proximity to Anna Maria Island so we were able to ride our bikes over to it easily. Pretty pricey but for a day or two, to us, the location was worth it.

This is a great park that is very well kept up. Sites are all brick pavers with a nice mix of well manicured full timer spots as well as rental units. They do allows travel trailers, 5th wheels and motorhomes. It also has a nice club house and laundry room. The pool is great and if you go walk across the street to Cortez kitchen for breakfast at least once. The "fitness center" is really just a stationary bike and a elliptical. A treadmill or a multiple station resistance machine would have been nice. They also escorted us to the site upon check in and even hooked up our power cable and water. A real first class place for sure. The best one I have ever visited. Plus its only one mile across the bridge to the beach and the Gulf of Mexico. I also highly suggest you try Beach Bistro for a world class dining experience while in the area. Reservations are required and yes it is pretty pricey but well worth it. Ill be back to Holiday Cove RV Park for sure. We camped at Holiday Cove RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Granted, it's a beautiful park-fully bricked sites, lovely landscaping, pool, etc., but we go on vacation to meet people and see the sites. People here are friendly if you own your site, but if you are not here for the season. We liked that there was a bus system right by the road, and the beaches are beautiful. It's a lovely resort, but we prefer people to mingle where we stay. There weren't activities planned to allow you to meet others, and we never really had any contact with the staff. We had friends by the road, and they complained of the noise all night. We were closer back so heard nothing. Husband said there was only one toilet in the men room for all these sites?

We have stayed at this RV Resort several times and we are always impressed by the faculty and staff. It is a place that you can purchase a lot or rent one when available. Its location is perfect for a winter or summer visit. We highly recommend this place for a quiet, laid back visit that is located near some of the best beaches in Florida.

Holiday Cove is a newly remodeled RV park, and restrooms, laundry, and club house are nice and clean. All sites have brick pavers on the entire site and landscaping is nicely done between sites. Most sites are back in with about three pull through sites. The sites are difficult to back into since they are perpendicular to the road. It would have made much easier backing if the sites were angled and a new "Resort" should have been able to figure that out. With one swimming pool, one shuffle board set up, and a very small fitness room, adjacent to the laundry room, I have a hard time referring to this as a "Resort". All group activities are organized by the campers and management only offers an occasional meal where they supply the meat and the "guests" get to bring everything else. The "Resort" is on the road going to one of only a few bridges that go to Anna Marie Island and its beaches. On a nice warm day the traffic is awful and just getting out of the "Resort" is difficult. We stayed here from Dec.15 to the middle of March and the cost averaged $1500 for the season. They will no longer have seasonal rates and have increased the cost of monthly rates. Although it is in a nice area and is well landscaped the price is just too much considering other parks in the area have much more to do and cost about the same. We camped at Holiday Cove RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
