The hotel

Nestled on one of the island's most spectacular beaches, this secluded, world-class resort offers an eco-friendly holiday experience second to none. There's a full-service spa with a wonderful range of treatments inspired by the healing waters of the Gulf. There's also activities that focus on well-being and purity, including yoga and natural food cooking lessons with the resort chef, but if you're not up for cooking yourself, award winning Caretta on the Gulf serves up delicious food all day long.  Children will love the activities on offer at Camp Ridley, including campfire storytelling, treasure hunts, nature excursions, and arts and crafts. A great place to simply relax, Sandpearl's holistic approach to life will leave you feeling completely rejuvenated and ready to face the world again!

This is by far my favorite resort, and we’ve been to so many. We live on the east coast of FL and have visited this resort a couple times.

This is by far my favorite resort, and we’ve been to so many. We live on the east coast of FL and have visited this resort a couple times. I always remembered it as my Favorite and couldn’t wait to come back - it did not disappoint. The food, rooms, amenities, beach, service…absolutely outstanding. Hotel is clean, rooms are quiet and no monkeying around with the AC like a lot of resorts do. 10x better than The Breakers. I’m making this an annual trip! Read less

I hesitate in writing a review because I don't want this place to become overrun like other great spots have!! But there is no place that has this much DIRECT and uninterrupted oceanfront access.

I hesitate in writing a review because I don't want this place to become overrun like other great spots have!! But there is no place that has this much DIRECT and uninterrupted oceanfront access. The sand is white baby power and clean!! Here's what I love: *Direct Beach access and chairs are exclusive to the resort so it detracts from public use. *Activities for the kids, just enough offerings to be fun, make memories and feel like traditions, NOT enough to feel like it changes the "beach/relaxing" pace! *The area has access to beach shops like Ron Jon and all the normal stuff *You can walk to the pier for the "beach vacation" vibe *Clearsky Cafe and Frenchy's are a few steps from the resort so you can grab food so easily if you're tired of eating in! *The FULL OCEAN VIEW breakfast buffet is well priced and covers breakfast and lunch with NO wait and great food. *The pool station covers all your beach towels, free popsicles for kiddos, beach toys and any little items you might need to buy. *The french fries at the Tate's Grill - you're welcome. Cons: *The Smore kits are a little pricey for what you get. Instead, walk to CVS across the street and buy your supplies there! :-) *We've been coming here since 2010. The hotel is starting to get more attention which means more the prices are higher than it used to be. I think that's the case everywhere. Because we love this place so much, we've chosen to save up and keep going here! Final thoughts : Yes, it's possible you'll save all your money, go for three days and it rains for two of them and one of the pool attendants take your towel when you still wanted it. However, that's just real life and would happen anywhere you go. We have been coming here for over a decade now and have traveled the world. When we choose where we want to go on family vacation, this is it. Every. Single. Time! Go, slow down, swing in the hammocks, build sandcastles even if you don't have kids, search for seashells early in the morning with a sunrise walk, and take in all the Sandpearl at Clearwater Beach Bliss!!

We have enjoyed many wonderful sunset views from the grand lady of Clearwater Beach. The service is outstanding. We stayed in a Jr beachfront unit on the 5th Fl.

We have enjoyed many wonderful sunset views from the grand lady of Clearwater Beach. The service is outstanding. We stayed in a Jr beachfront unit on the 5th Fl. We enjoyed a birthday dinner at Caretta - pricy but mostly delicious. We couldn’t help but notice that the ‘pearl’ of CW Beach is graying around the edges. The women’s restroom at lobby/restaurant level needs Maintenance. The handicap stall door lock is broken & the woodwork needs some paint. Our room was nicely appointed, but the furniture needs some touch up. The first night I had no hot water, and the plumbing was gurgling. A trip to the spa was relaxing, but small things jump out, like a broken robe hook outside my shower. Management needs to walk around with head of maintenance & take steps to bring this grand old lady back to 2005 & Mr. Chazam’s vision! Read less

Excellent service. Very clean. They gave us an early check in knowing we flew all night and were exhausted. Staff was so courteous. Everything was fine in a timely manner. I’d highly recommend this hotel. Can’t wait to go back.
