If you want to pay for their fish tanks go there, if you want good food forget it. Grouper was bland and over cooked, 1 good dish out of 4 was not worth the money! We told them it was a special birthday and they didn’t do anything. Do yourself a favor and go to Snappers across the street.

We stopped at RumFish and ate at Gulf Side Grill! MiMi was amazing!!!! She took very good care of us and served us an amazing breakfast! Thank you, MiMi! RumFish is so good! We have stopped here for fish, drinks, look at the aquarium, and shop! I love that they have s’mores for the kiddos, too!

Been staying at this place a few years now. Used to be Guy Harvey Outpost now it is RumFish resort. Had a fantastic experience this year. The front desk staff specifically Derrick was most accommodating and helpful. And if you need a great guy to take you fishing or point you in the right direction Captain Tim is your man.

We had a great sisters’ weekend in St. Pete Beach, and we’ll be back to this resort. Here are the pros and cons from my point of view: Pros: — We stayed in a gulf front balcony suite, and it was wonderful. Enough room for 4 of us, and the view was spectacular. Overall, great room! — The Gulfside Grill is a treat. It’s situated between the adult and kid pools and has a good menu. Tina and Shelly were our servers here and were amazing. Lots of great recommendations for restaurants... and super nice, fun people. — Adult pool — this was great. We were able to relax away from loud kids and just enjoy the peace. Cons: — This might be a pro for some, but they put up a large screen and speakers and show the Tampa Bay baseball game on the beach. For us, it wasn’t welcome. The speaker was literally right in front of the cabanas we rented and no one gave us a heads up on that. It was super loud and annoying... especially for folks who aren’t Tampa Bay fans and didn’t want the game blaring in our ears. Again, may be some like this, but a warning that the speakers would be literally on top of us would have been nice. — Both pools are full sun. There are tables with umbrellas, but all the lounge chairs lining the pools have no shade. A few moveable umbrellas would have been really welcome! Read less
