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!

Amanda at the front desk made our stay superb from beginning to end. The hotel is pristine clean, well appointed, and staff is friendly and responsive, and they go out of their way to make the stay feel like we are the only ones there. It is convenient to get in and out to and from the main beach but Sand Key is right across the street and there is a free shuttle to it or an easy and beautiful walk on nature trail. The view from the room is spectacular of the bay. Can't say enough food things. Read less

As a result I have decided to publically shame them. I refuse to call reception as it will cost me a fortune (I live in the UK). We had a nice stay at the hotel but our deposit was only partially refunded with no explanation. Can someone from the hotel / Marriott please contact me and I will then leave my actual review of our stay. Read less

We stayed for a good few hours the next morning before leaving and used the pool facilities. The pool is great with sports equipment and a safe area for children to play. We didn't eat a meal at the hotel but the small cafe which serves Starbucks coffee was great and was reasonably priced. Our room on the 9th floor had great views of Clearwater Bay with ice machine close to hand on the landings. Read less
