5 Date Ideas For Your Compass Hotel Getaway
Fall in love beneath stunning sunsets and glistening emerald waters. Explore Anna Maria, Holmes Beach and Bradenton Beach for a romantic Florida Gulf escape. Plan your date night with Compass Hotel by Margaritaville and book an enchanting getaway with your better half. Start with our favorite romantic recommendations.
A Cozy Night In
Relax with quality time at Compass. Snuggle up on our comfortable beds before heading to The Compass Bar & Chill. Happy hour anyone? Sip on classic Margaritaville cocktails as you greet the sunset. Be sure to catch live music on most weekend evenings as you roll into dinner at Floridays Bar & Grill, just next door. Excite your palate with surf style cuisine and the Tiki Bar. Plan an evening dip in the Compass pool to stargaze beneath the clear sky!
Explore The Area
Head to Anna Maria Island and explore on two wheels. Rent bicycles from Beach Bums and see what the island has to offer. Increase the cute factor and get a tandem bike! Golf carts are also street legal on the island and rentals are available from AMI Adventure Rentals. Visit our beaches, natural areas and even an oceanfront cafe for toes-in-the-sand dining.
Wine, Dine & Donuts
Toast to your love over a meal. Reserve a table at Beach Bistro--Anna Maria Island’s most romantic restaurant. Seared foie gras and an impressive wine list are best enjoyed with their oceanfront view. Take a trip to the Doctor’s Office for a stylish cocktail atmosphere and don’t miss a visit to the Donut Experiment for custom made cake donuts. Look for the line of locals waiting to get their fix.
Sunsets in Paradise
Long walks on the beach are romantic for a reason. Retreat to Bean Point Beach, on the quiet North end of Anna Maria Island, where you can find secluded pockets for privacy. Other favorites include west-facing Manatee Public Beach and Coquina Beach. All beaches are a short drive across the river from Compass Hotel. Or, forgo the beach entirely in favor of a sunset cruise leaving from Anna Maria Island. This classic Florida date idea is a great option. Book with AMI Dolphin Tours and you might just double date with wild dolphins.
Be swept off your feet--Florida style! Zip around the Gulf on jet-skis or parasails for an adrenaline packed adventure. Book rentals with H2O WaterSportz or FlyAMI. Avid angler? Try a fishing charter and catch dinner. Or view our incredible marine life for yourself with a snorkel in our clear waters. Head out with Egmont Key Adventures.
