The hotel is nicely appointed and clean. Staff is very friendly and during my recent visit during the covid-19 pandemic the staff was very attentive to the needs and safety of the guests as well as each other. The room was spacious and clean. During my visit the hotel wasn't very full so not too many other guests. I did notice that during the time I was there guests to the property were not required to wear any kind of face covering. The hotel only has one full service restaurant for breakfast, lunch and dinner. There is a pool-side bar that serves food during lunch and late afternoon. Upside to the location in Clearwater, right outside the front entrance you'll find a great number of restaurants and bars all within a few blocks. Read less

We visited the resort for a long weekend. The resort is overall beautiful and the room was very nice. We were able to check in early and received a room upgrade. The staff was very friendly and were all wearing face masks. There were signs posted at check in and the front entrance informing guests of the new ordinance of wearing face masks in indoor public spaces. Unfortunately, about 50% of guest were in compliance and the hotel staff was not enforcing it. The pool area was very nice and just off of the beach. The beach loungers however, were spaced too close together and the pool area was well over the 50% capacity as required by county guidelines. We did not see public areas being sanitized throughout the day nor did anyone sanitize the pool chair or table we were at between guests. The beach chairs were very well spaced. Be prepared to pay $26 per day for the beach umbrella ( the chairs were part of the resort fee) Also, there is only valet parking at around $27 per day. The resort is located on a Main Street within walking distance of shops and restaurants. Overall great resort and location - will wait until the COVID pandemic is over before we return. Read less

Check in Sunday 6.21.20 Cleaning lady came 6.24.20 at 10am. No notice of her coming. Text was supposed to be sent day before and it never was sent. 6.24.20 11am asked front desk to have cleaning lady come back because room needed cleaning. It had been 3 days. Front desk said they would have someone clean room at 1:30 and to be out of room. 6.24.20 8pm we returned to room from leaving at noon (8 hours gone) Room was never cleaned. Beds not made, no towels, nothing vacuumed, cleaned or made. 6.24.20 8pm called front desk and they apologized and said room would be cleaned the next day at 11am. 6.25.20 we left room at 10am to go to water park and returned at 7pm. Room still not cleaned. Beds unmade, towels still piled on the floor (did this for cleaning lady) and now 5 days of trash still piled in room. 6.25.20 7pm I go downstairs to speak with manager who gives me all the right answers and says he will take care of this. I let him know I would tell him when we went out to dinner so that maybe finally the room could be cleaned and beds made. 6.25.20 8pm. We leave for dinner and notify front desk. Guess what? Beds were finally made. However, all the towels are still piled on the bathroom floor, the trash cans that were overflowing were not emptied, the trash bags that I had compiled for them and placed next to the door were not even taken out. Also, we had no clean towels, no hand towels or wash cloths. We were prepared for not having five star service because of the changes made because of COVID. We knew cleaning would be on the third day and not every day. But this type of service for us paying THOUSANDS of dollars to stay in a 4/5 star resort is unacceptable and I feel as if I’ve been taken advantage of. As I write this I’m sitting in my room with a pile of dirty wet towels still in my bathroom, the bathroom smells because I have two teen boys with me and I was finally given clean towels after my boys had to use dirty towels to dry off with. By far the most horrible service I’ve ever received and each time I speak to someone nothing ever gets done. The general manager of this hotel should be embarrassed. Here’s a picture of my towels still sitting here. I guess housekeeping didn’t see them all???? Read less

This is our favorite resort on Clearwater Beach. We like the location which is at the north end of the village. It is close to, but not right in the excitement.

This is our favorite resort on Clearwater Beach. We like the location which is at the north end of the village. It is close to, but not right in the excitement. There are a lot of dining and shopping options only a short walk away. Our room was spacious and comfortable, with a large bath, comfortable bed, nice linens, and fluffy towels. The room was made up every third day because of Covid-19, but we had clean towels and coffee delivered as needed. The pool area is nice with a zero-entry area on one end which kids of all ages love. The resort fee includes beach chairs, which is not the case with other resorts in the area. The downside is you still must pay for the umbrella, which is a rip. Hotel staff were extremely helpful and service in the restaurants and bars was fast and efficient. In response to Covid-19, there are hand sanitation stations located in many high traffic areas and the hotel staff were wearing masks. It was not like stays in the past, but we still enjoyed our 6-night stay. Read less
