We were very disappointed with the employees. My wife and I never felt welcome. The employees at the pool were barely friendly, must not need tips. They definitely don't follow the 6 foot rule, heck the 1 foot. That was our first and last stay. The one valet was a real hustler I wish I could remember his name.

we have been staying at the sandpearl. 4-5 times per year for the past 5 years and we keep coming back. this is easily the best hotel on Clearwater beach, but the reason we keep coming back is the employees. they are all outstanding. here are just a few of the best in the business. Lydia- greets you when you first walk in the door. what an ambassador. David, by the pool- just a hard worker who just knows how to take care of you. alexis- loves her job. keeps out the riff raff, and ranks with david as the top ginger at the pool. pryce-probably mixes the best gin drinks on the gulf coast. Mackenzie- hard worker. always smiling and knows her stuff. bill- you never get thirsty when bill is serving you on the beach. ren- you never have to worry about anything when he is setting up the beach. alli- simply the queen of the beach. treats it like she used to play hockey...dominating Elaine- has the potential to be the best server ever. just a joy to be around. bobby- always makes sure all your needs are taken care of. keeps you filled with booze and food. some say he is the GOAT...all I know is my drinks always taste better when bobby is swe...I mean serving them. last but not least is matthew...he is the king of the beach. the lord of the manor. the master of his domain. he takes no prisoners. and the sand pearl isn't the sandpearl without matt. these cats keep us coming back for more. see you soon sandpearl Read less

Great hotel. Probably the best experience in Clearwater. Great service, great location and a very enjoyable time. Certainly will come back as all the personnel are helpful and engaging and make you feel most welcome.
