The hotel

The Marriott Suites Clearwater Beach on Sand Key is the perfect choice for a family holiday, with modern, spacious and well-equipped suites, each with a private balcony and full water views. 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 feel like a spot of pampering, look no further than Antonio's Salon and Day Spa, offering a variety of different treatments, all designed to leave you feeling completely rejuvenated. Better yet, all Virgin Holidays' guests receive 20% off spa pricing. There's also a fitness centre for the health-conscious and organised entertainment to keep the kids busy at Lisa's Klubhouse. 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!

We stayed in early January. I am a Marriott Platinum member and is one of the best Marriott's I've stayed at. Very nice pool and the servers at the pool provided great service and were very friendly. Also enjoyed the fire pits next to the pool area at night. But the best part of the hotel are the views. We had a room on a high floor. Out our front door balcony, you had a great view of the Gulf. From the bedroom balcony, a great view of the Bay. The room was very clean upon check-in. We opted not to have cleaning service, but the hotel maid on our floor stopped us several times during our stay to make sure we had everything we needed. Much appreciated. Read less

I’m on my way home from a night spent at Sand Key with my family for a hockey game. I was greeted by the friendly, smiling (through the mask), energetic Mikel! He was so pleasant and so happy to have us a guest. He made sure to ask where we were from and showed interest and made us feel so welcomed. I also didn’t know where we could get some good seafood and Christopher Rose was kind enough to give us recommendations. The service from the front door, restaurant with Kim to the room service with extra blankets sent to us at night was beyond our expectations and we can’t wait to visit again! Thank you Mikel and all for treating us like family! Great hotel, great food, great atmosphere 😊 Read less

We literally booked this trip 48 hours before we left and we could not have been more pleased. Hotel is located just over the bride from Clearwater Beach which made it more calm and relaxing. Rooms were spacious and views were amazing. Staff was so friendly. Many walkable restaurants and a Dunkin. Jet Ski rentals on site and a great pool. Pool does get busy early so be sure to claim your seats. Only flaw is the beach is a little bit of a hike. Still, we knew that going in. My entire family loved our visit and enjoyed finished the year here. We've already talked about returning next year. Read less

I could go on and on about the level of Customer Service offered at this location. The pictures are true to the exceptional layout. From the moment of check in I began writing my review in my head! The managers and staff went above and beyond to provide a great experience for us. Wilmer the valet was the nicest human you can meet. William the manager went out of his way to meet our wants and needs. I wish I could name each staff by name who took part in providing such a great stay for us. Rooms were spotless. Great location. Pool area is beautiful and spotless. The staff know the area well and will refer you to amazing outings. I had 4 males to feed and entertain for 5 days and this hotel literally made it a breeze! We will go back and when we do this is where we will stay! Read less

The rooms are right over the water. It is like being on the balcony of a cruise ship! The pool is excellent. The location is excellent. The staff is incredible. The beds are great, and so is the food and drink. There's a Starbucks in the lobby and a Columbia restaurant next door. The gulf is across the street, with a great bird sanctuary/park only… Read more

The beds are great, and so is the food and drink. There's a Starbucks in the lobby and a Columbia restaurant next door. The gulf is across the street, with a great bird sanctuary/park only a block away. And the views from either side are amazing. Read less
