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!

This is not one the nicer Marriott properties. For one thing, it;s mostly a motel, not hotel, room entrance doors are external. Beach is on the other side of the road, this is not on the beach. Rooms were adequate. The pool bar was not open every day due to temps. Employees were very nice and helpful.

OK I will be honest I am a Marriott buff! However this one has a really interesting shape - gets the sun all round the rooms which are not standard Marriott design ( I think this was an old Raddison) Well furnished but not that heavy style and no picture of owners! Good pool area beside creek and way above average staff - very helpful and accommodating. Separate lounge area from bedroom. Small balcony - on any refurbishment although difficult they need to be enlarged for todays market. Location is outside main downtown Clearwater - for me that is an advantage for others? Its a few mins walk across the road to the huge beach - I went via the Sheraton ( its Marriott now) Next door is a row of restaurants which is very convenient. More on that later postings. Overall an accomplished well staffed Marriott. Read less

I would definitely stay at this Marriott again. It was right across from the beach, with good views of the beach from the hotel walkways. The pool area was nice, with a big jacuzzi, and they supply the towels. Room service brought eggs that were prepared properly, and the orange juice was really good! At dinner, the steak was cooked properly,… Read more
I would definitely stay at this Marriott again. It was right across from the beach, with good views of the beach from the hotel walkways. The pool area was nice, with a big jacuzzi, and they supply the towels. Room service brought eggs that were prepared properly, and the orange juice was really good! At dinner, the steak was cooked properly, but we didnt care for olive sauce that it had. The room was spacious - you could separate the bedroom from the living area w french doors, but they did not lock. The Internet TV stopped working (Netflix) and would not resume. There was also entertainment in the lobby at night, but I missed it. Read less
