Location is the key to this hotel – right on the beautiful Clearwater Beach. Lovely Bars and restaurants in walking distance. Also the use of the Trolley bus to travel around, so that you don’t need the car or to find parking (which can be difficult on the weekend.) Spotlessly clean, lovely rooms and showers and helpful staff.
We have stayed at this hotel 6 or 7 times, and it never disappoints. Traditional elegance, comfortable rooms, great pool and beach, and first-class customer service. One guy there recommended me the cozumel deep sea fishing trip for first-timers. Located in the heart of Clearwater Beach with easy walking or free shuttle to most shops and restaurants.
My Husband and I and our two kids spent 6 lovely nights at the Sandpearl Resort. We paid a little more for a Gulf front junior Suite, which was definitely worth the money. The bathroom was beautiful and big with a shower and bath which had shuttered windows which opened up to the rest of the room.
Our view of the pool and the beach was fabulous, and we saw amazing sunsets from the balcony. It has, and the kids can watch movies every night in the pool weather permitting. Buffet breakfast is excellent at the hotel with kids eating free.
They also toast nightly s’mores around the fire pit, which is an adorable thing to do with the kids, sitting on the beach under the stars! I want to mention in particular the housekeeping and security guard at nighttime. I’m sorry we didn’t get their names.
My younger Son was sick one night in our room (disaster when you’re away!), and they kindly came and took all the soiled bed clothes away and replaced everything fresh with absolutely no fuss at all! They were fantastic and made us feel a bit better about the situation.
The only downside to us Brits (not used to it at all!) was the valet parking as we like to have our car ready to go and not have to call people to get something from the vehicle etc., but that was only a minor thing on our part. Beautiful hotel in a beautiful setting! Thank you for having us!
