Adults and children alike will love the grotto-style outdoor heated pool complete with 35ft cascading waterfall, open-air cabanas and spa tub.

When you're ready to eat, choose from casual poolside fare at Kokomos, a pizza to go, or a delicious ice-cream sundae courtesy of Lisa's Ice Cream Shoppe... and, if you're wondering who Lisa is, she's the resident blue and gold macaw that perches in the lobby! For fine dining and breathtaking views, head to the Art Deco-style Watercolour Steakhouse and Grille, finishing off with a nightcap – the perfect end to a perfect day!

This is a full service Marriott. Employees were very professional and always had a helpful smile on their face. Our two room suite (every room on property are like this) was very comfortable! Had everything we needed. Bed was very comfortable and bathroom a nice size. Every room offers a nice size balcony with a wonderful view of the bay. The pool was a very nice size that had "the resort" feel to it. A full bar was located poolside for your favorite cocktail. You are close to the activities in Clearwater Beach but feel far removed once you cross the bridge into Sand Key. Loved that about this hotel! The swimming beach (ocean) is located across the street and can be accessed in a 5 minute walk. We had the breakfast buffet in the morning. It was quick and good. If you would like pancakes or an omelette the waiter would take your order and serve it to you at your table. A nice feature, as you did not have to stand and wait for someone to prepare your omelette. I loved this hotel and will stay again. Read less

We were originally booked to stay at the HIlton but our holiday company changed our booking to the Marriott a few weeks before travel. I was initially a bit disappointed as we weren't right on the beach but as soon as we arrived my mind was changed and I was so glad we were staying at the marriot! Super friendly check in staff who couldn't have been more helpful. Our suite was lovely - lots of space and the balcony views were outstanding. We loved watching the pelicans down below, there were so many of them! We even spotted dolphins. We loved the pool area - we changed our plans for the last day so we had the morning to chill and our kids spent the entire time in the water. They loved it! Very clean and it was great to be able to order drinks from the staff. We popped into the kids club and the lady who was working (sorry I didn't get her name!) was so friendly and encouraged the kids to play and colour as much as they wanted. Great location, I actually really enjoyed being away from the hustle and bustle of the main Clearwater area. We jumped on the jolly trolley to go to Pier 60 and it was nice to leave the car behind. This was free so very handy. We had a lovely stay and I'm sad we were only there for a couple of days - we will definitely book again for our next trip. The only negative I have is having to walk through all the smokers as we left the hotel - not pleasant at all! Read less

This is a great hotel for the money - and that's largely because it's just out of Clearwater proper, over the bridge in Sand Key. Our room had a great view, two queens and a sitting/little kitchen area and housekeeping was great. We watched wild dolphins swim by from our balcony. The sun rose on our side which was also lovely. There is a beach… Read more
This is a great hotel for the money - and that's largely because it's just out of Clearwater proper, over the bridge in Sand Key. Our room had a great view, two queens and a sitting/little kitchen area and housekeeping was great. We watched wild dolphins swim by from our balcony. The sun rose on our side which was also lovely. There is a beach over the road which the hotel will take you to on a golf cart - there is also a regular trolley that goes into Clearwater and is complimentary for guests, which is great and saves the stress of driving up/trying to park (and you can have a beer!) Poolside can get a bit crowded and noisy depending on the day/time of year - it felt like there were millions of kids playing basketball in the pool - and we had two of them so if that's not your thing be mindful of that. I would stay here again but the beach and scene at Clearwater, especially the sunsets, are the main event. Read less

Lovely hotel, on arrival greeted by awesome staff on the door. Checked in and then up to the room. It was spacious, clean and had a great kitchen area. Pool area beautiful with plenty of towels to use, overlooking the ocean. We tried breakfast one morning it was pretty standard, we also went for dinner one evening and this was amazing. I had the hugest pork chop which was cooked to perfection. You can use the Jolly Trolley for free to access the main beach on Gulfview Blvd, it tends to arrive as and when though so be prepared for a wait. There is a golf buggy which the doormen use to take you back and forth to the opposite beach it takes about 10mins to walk. You can hire jet skis and a paddle board from by the pool, definitely worth it. Overall it was a really lovely stay and the majority of staff were excellent. However there was a lot of weed being smoked around the hotel, it would also waft into my room when balcony doors were open. A couple of staff this morning stank of it at the poolside when folding towels, as I was approaching them one commented to the other that 'it smells good'. One of them was also rude the other day when I tried to ask a question, she initially ignored me then answered me but couldn't be bothered to make eye contact. I would have rated the hotel 5 otherwise. Read less

Our stay at the Marriott suites on sand key was amazing….. Dan M checked us in around midnight. We let Dan know we had family coming in tomorrow and would be nice to have them on the same floor. Not only did he make sure they were on our floor but he placed them right in the room next door. I appreciate the efficiency, The complimentary champagne and or water was a nice touch as well. The pool is perfect for the kids. They have a area that serves ages 2-18 and for the adults nice cabana and staff that serves drinks. Definitely enjoyed my stay. Read less
