Rates for 2018-2019 are increased just over 30%, because they can, Florida has no rent control laws. Still not to bad for all the amenities and proximity to the beaches and boating. Rates vary depending on length of stay, at least three months ae preferred. - T_I_S_H

Planned to stay 3 nights but enjoyed the weather and location so much we extended for 3 weeks. Most of the traveling RV sites are near the main road ( 10777 Cortez Rd W, Bradenton, FL ) but the road noise wasn't a problem. The park has limited traveler's spaces as most lots have been converted to permanent over the years. It has a beautiful waterfront road with seating areas that offer great sunset viewings.
The location is great if you like beaching, shopping and eating. Anna Maria Island has beautiful beaches with large free parking areas, bath houses and a food shack all within Coquina Beach just a three mile drive away. lots of water related things to do like parasailing, fishing, rental toys etc. Park potable water had very good pressure and excellent quality. We used our satellite antenna so not having cable wasn't an issue. - G and L

Sarasota Bay is ruled by the resident owned Paradise Bay. Rules, written and unwritten are enforced or ignored with no logic. Although they advertise 300 sites, in reality there are less than 100 as the majority are park models. Office staff in Sara Bay is outstanding, can't say the same for Para Bay. Extended stays here are the norm, and once you are in, you can reserve your site for 3 or more months for next year, prior to Feb. There are no shade trees. HOWEVER..This is a great community for those who return. On site there are bowling, shuffle, bocce, pool leagues, cards and games every night, current movies every Saturday. Boat docks and storage available, $405.00 yearly. Biking distance to Gulf beaches and restaurants. Wireless is absolutely useless, down more than up but Brighthouse is available to install internet or cable usually on a days notice. We have been returning for ten years and have noticed many changes and will return. Have recommended to others. No mail service, but Cortez P.O. is a mile away. Considering all the amenities this is the best value in the area, if you can get in. Para Bay is on the intercoastal and the marina is walking/bicycle distance from the furthest site. - T_I_S_H

As other posters have noted, the interior roads are very tight and the whole campground seems crowded. You certainly need the assistance of the host to help navigate the roads and back into your assigned site. The landscaping between sites does a wonderful job of creating privacy, but you are sure close to your neighbor. The waterfront sites are simply sites along a narrow overgrown canal. I thought the price was a little high. Looking over the past reviews it seems the rates have been increasing. - moleary18

We stayed here over the 4th of July weekend. The park was full but was quiet in spite of the holiday. Sites are level and concrete or pavers. Electric water and sewer hookups were conveniently located. Sites were separated by nice landscaping. There was enough room at our site for our 25 ft motorhome and vehicle. Dog walking was rather limited but we did not find it a problem and it looked like everyone cleaned up behind their pets. Wi-fi was spotty but great if you were close to the office. - j&b

This is the most we have paid for a site but we were waiting for warranty work on our truck and found this place nearby. Nice' clean sites mostly inhabited by owners. Roads a bit tight but manageable. Easy walking to restaurants and mini mart and close to everything else by car or bike. Would stay again. - Fox Mountain

Stayed for two nights while going to a Tampa Rays game (about 50 minutes travel time). Park is very close to Anna Maria Island and located in the historic village of Cortez. This is a well maintained park with a front and back section. The front section seems to have traffic noise while the back section (for larger rigs) is quieter. The sites are close together and all back-in. Our site was located between two trees and across from the doggie waste bag dispenser which made for a multi-turn exercise in backing in and got us an audience of a dozen residents. The wi-fi is very good and the cable has more channels than any other I have ever seen. We were there during a very heavy rainfall and there was no flooding. The sites are concrete with a paver section with table. Hookups were good for power and water but the waste would require an extension to a 15 ft. hose. I would have given them a nine except for the tight site. - Rd yacht

Great location with easy bike ride over the intracoastal to beach, shops, restaurants and more. The sites are little close but never had a problem with privacy. Owners are super nice and easy check in and check out. Paperwork is waiting at your site and you are all set. - Strutt

Best location of an RV park, 1/2 mi from the beach. Love coming here. They usually are full the winter months. We will be back. Well maintained, small pool, but heated. Internet was slow. - Jenne23

When we first looked at the park we were impressed with the ability to maneuver your rig into your site because the roads were wide enough. The pool was crystal clear and there were an enormous amount of lounge chairs surrounding it, and they were in excellent condition. What really impressed me was all the connections were centrally located on the site unlike a lot of parks I have stayed. One month in park and am very satisfied management all very friendly. Would recommend this park to my friends. Maintenance very kept up, such as lawns etc. Water went out once but was back on in a jiffy. I plan on staying here for at least a year now because the first month went so well, the people who run the place are real and have welcoming personalities, thats important to me. - P D wontdoitagain

We had a premium site with a nice concrete pad. The staff and neighbors are friendly. I am not sure about the laundry hours they were not consistent. The only time they were open at 7 was when they were left open all night. Fortunately that was the day we did laundry. Also, the bathrooms require a code to open the lock. No one told us that until we were here for 5 days. - Beas

Booked 2 nights online through chat / phone. Stayed one. Site is billed as "Full Hook Up". Doesn't work for a late model RV with midship water and sewer hookup. Water and sewer connections end up under the coach. 30 amp power is a hot plug loosely attached to a pole with no identifiable circuit breaker. Looking in the open uncovered power box I surmise the wiring does not meet standard electrical code requirements. On arrival the agent asked if we were frightened by the neighborhoods we drove through to get to the resort. He couldn't check us in because he had already closed for the day, before 5:00 PM. He neglected to give us the sign on code so we were unable to use the Wi-Fi. Since we couldn't use the sewer hook up we had to move the RV to the dump station do dump tanks. The only thing that was really good was the cable TV reception which the agent on duty in the morning said we weren't supposed to have. Given that this is our first and only experience with Sun RV Resorts it will be a very long time if ever before we stay at another one. - Tuney-GA

Older RV park but well maintained. Gravel sites surrounded by lawn. Some shaded and some open. Some sites are short so make sure you ask for a long site if you're in a big rig. The 50 amp plugs receptacles were installed upside down yet the power was fine. It appears that about 75% of the sites are for full timers and the remainder for transients. Nice pool and fitness room. Only 20 minutes to St. Pete beach. Rate reflects Passport America discount. We will stay here again in our motorhome if we need to visit St Pete. - lmg

Things I liked were the Staff was very pleasant and helpful. The long term snowbirds and permanents are the priority here and they were most friendly and those we talked with raved about the place. Many have been there for years. The location of this campground is great as it is minutes to St Petersburg or Bradenton. Access for big rigs is good as the roads are paved and wide enough to maneuver. Pool and spa area is beautiful and virtually on the water with magnificent views. The pool was heated and very comfortable for swimming. Not so good things are short timers are not the priority here. Sites are not so level. I needed to drag out the blocks to lift the front end higher. Each site has a slab for outside sitting, and some were in pretty shabby condition. Picnic tables are real rough as they appear many years old, and do not appear to have ever seen any paint. Visual appeal for our site was less than ideal. The dumpsters were not in some remote part of the campground as is typical in most. We were located across the road from dumpsters and storage areas. We spent two weeks watching everyone arrive daily, often in noisy trucks, to dump their trash in the dumpster. It was a lot of undesired noise and an unsightly view. But only a few sites in the 40?s numbers are subject to this. The spa was not working during our stay. WIFI signal was strong at our site 43 however the bandwidth was poor. We heard others comment on how poor the WIFI worked. Cable is not ?turned on? at any given site. We were told we must go in town and contact Brighthouse to have cable turned on at our site. I assume at our cost. We did not pursue having it turned on. TV Reception was not so good for us. Most evening TV shows we were used to were unavailable. - Denny Pike

Nice enough RV park, typical snowbird park. Sites are tight, the back in's in the center are literally back to back RV's. The pool and hot tub were operational, clean, and nice. The game room was seldom if ever used while we were there, 2 free pool tables, and a ping pong table. We didn't take in the breakfast meals, or other things they had, but heard good reviews. This is mostly a snowbird location, has nice older large trees and shade, electric/water/sewage was not a problem all worked well. Very good restaurant within walking distance (just watch the traffic while crossing). The rate reflects a monthly rate, would definitely stay here again. - Robnmo

We spent a month at this park, to visit friends. We paid $770.00 for the month. When we checked in the manager was very condescending and talked down to you. The site we were given was in the overflow adjacent to a four lane highway. The surface was sea shells and sloping up to the fence. Due to the very busy highway, we had to wear ear plugs to get any sleep. The highway turns into a racetrack at night. We attempted to get another spot but were refused, even though there were empty spots available. These spots remained empty during our entire stay. The wifi is on and off, depending where you're parked. The up side of this park is it's location. The downside is the management. Rude would be an understatement. We will not return or recommend this park to anyone. - Bruce and Edith

Stayed during when the summer rates were really good. Park was somewhat empty, will return. Restroom very clean. Pool area was clean and nice chairs. - Tropical gardens

The man in the office was rude, using the f word in his instructions. We have been RVing for 9 years and this is the most hateful representative of a park that we have encountered. The sites were tight, but that is common in this area. The residents were helpful. Wifi was iffy. - SomedayCame

Very nice park in 1970. Everything is too small for the number of sites. 2 shuffleboards, 2 pool tables, 1/2 court basketball - that's it for sports. Clubhouse seats 80, 200 sites. You climb over each other. Nice small pool. Has a '50s neglected vibe but there's a lot of man-made noise, leaf blowers at 8AM, 24 hour train is 1/8 mile. Heavy bugs with no control and you can't pitch a bugscreen porch. No internet. And, alas, the park is a 45 minute drive to anywhere. We moved on. - sprchief

We stayed in this park for 3 days to fill in a gap in our winter reservations. Located outside Palmetto in a country location. Not close to shopping or any restaurants. There is a dollar store at the end of the road for supplies. Decent park. Bathhouse is clean and in good repair. Laundry room is screened in room, which makes sense for Florida. Park has an old Florida feel to it as there are many, many trees in the park with hanging moss. The leaves were falling in buckets. Staff were tending to them, but loosing the battle. Trees are trimmed and should not scratch even the biggest rigs. Streets are a bit narrow, but most are designated at one-way. Most streets are paved, but some outlying areas are not paved or gravel. Sites on paved roads have a small cement patio and a picnic table. Sites are level and connections for power, sewer, and water are at the back of the site. Some outlying sites lack sewer connection, but mobile dumps are available. No cable TV, but over-the-air channels are plentiful and signal is good for most. Satellite reception would be possible for some, but not all sites because of trees. Wi fi reception has been decent. Most sites are seasonal. Staff and residents are outgoing and very friendly. Lots of activities on schedule. Escort to site helped us get backed in and was very helpful. The first site we were taken to had only one 50 amp outlet which was being used by the neighbor. It also lacked sewer. Escort called office and found another site that had 50 amp and sewer. It was listed as a 36' site, but we had enough room for our 38' coach with toad parked on an angle. We would stay here again for a short term visit, but location is not convenient for a seasonal stay. - RagTopDay

Nice, clean park with a lot of activities during the week. It is in a very rural area about 6 miles to the store but takes a long time to get to the beach. There are several permanent residents and many snowbirds that come every year. We stayed 5 nights and were not part of the group but the people were really nice. This is a very expensive area to camp. - Red dog mom

My parents have stayed as snowbirds in this park for 10+ years. My husband and I have traveled down here to visit them each year for all 10 years at different times of the winter. We have never had a bad stay. The pool is always warm and clean. The restrooms are clean with plenty of hot water. The laundry room is well equipped. There is shuffle board, bocce, BINGO, cards, dominos, other game nights if you are interested. there are other social events and everyone is always made to feel welcome but never pushed to join if not interested. The people are very friendly and warm. Fiesta Grove is a fun park I would highly recommend and hope to use when I retire! - RVr4L1fe

We stayed here for 9 months developing our RV inspection business. It was cheaper than most for winter rates, but you get what you pay for. For a full time RVer my impression is this is an old park model park for snowbirds. This makes it tough for the bigger RVs to get into. If management is there, they will help you get in.
In the busy season there are vehicles everywhere. With the tight roads navigating the park can be a challenge.
The sites have minimal asphalt and it is mostly old and deteriorating. Most sites slope from back to front with sewer located in the back. The grass is mostly weeds and there are lots of ants. Sitting out most times of the year is difficult due to mosquitoes and no-see-ums.
Water pressure is good and the free Wi-Fi, outside of the busy season, is adequate.
You are at least 30 minutes from the beach depending on traffic. The closest grocery store is 7 miles away. There is a Dollar General about a half mile away.
The park is located right next to train tracks. I counted anywhere from two to ten trains a day with excessive whistle blowing as the train crosses Bayshore Rd. If you are hard of hearing the vibrations will alert you to their presence. LOL
Rates: Yearly $344/mo plus electric, monthly in the busy season is $772, $399 out of the busy season. Nightly is $39/nt in season, $30 out of season. - Howard Jaros

Recently new managers have done a great job of improving this park. Very clean, well kept, and friendly, helpful staff. Wifi worked excellent.
We would definitely stay here again. - dagopapa

Finally, a place that knows how to set up a shower that doesn't spray your dry clothes and towel nor does it wet the floor of your changing area. Kudos. The bathroom was so clean that I found myself wiping down the sink after use. There is a pool, shuffle board, tennis courts and other outdoor activities, although I never had time to use any of them. Residents were friendly. The RVs are mostly set up on a sort-of "island" with plenty of trees to give it an outdoorsy feel and a pond next to it. A sign warns visitors not to feed or "molest" the alligators in the pond. Now, I understand about feeding the critters, but who needs to be told NOT to molest these sharp-toothed giants? Anyway, the park is clean and well kept, the price is reasonable and the wifi worked great. Community tools (I needed a ladder) are available. The only drawbacks: I got lost driving and called for help, but no one's in the office on weekends. How can you offer RV sites and not be open then? When I finally arrived, there was no "greeting sheet" with site #, wifi password or code to the mens bathroom. Management apologized about that later. I'd return. - John_K

What makes this park a great place to stop or to spend the Winter here is the people. From the office on down, friendly folks and a well organized park with plenty of things going on and lots to do. I would come back here again, but two things bothered me while here. The "Orange Juice Special" in back of the park. About 5 times a day this train comes by blowing and blowing the horn mainly because there are 3 crossings near by. And, to a lesser extent, US 41 in front with highway noise. Never-the-less, great park, you will enjoy your stay. - retiredblade

This is a 55+ park. Paved roads, grass sites with patios and table. Many park models with RV spaces scattered about. They have an “Island” section with shade, water and electric only. Friendly staff and residents. Nice recreation/multi-use hall with a varied selection of activities. No cable TV but open sites for satellite TV. Most sites are 30 amp. Train tracks behind park but not many trains use it. Did not use Wi-Fi, Verizon air card worked OK. I marked this park down as it suffers from low voltage (113-114 usually and down to 105-107 volts) as demand increases in the park. Rate shown is based on monthly rate. - nmmotorhome
