Good location, right on a private beach. The walk to the water is a bit far and they do have a golf cart to take you there and back. It’s nice when you have coolers, towels, etc to carry.

Good location, right on a private beach. The walk to the water is a bit far and they do have a golf cart to take you there and back. It’s nice when you have coolers, towels, etc to carry. Alcohol is not allowed on beach. We did get upgraded to a balcony room with view of pool and ocean because I have titanium elite status. The hotel was not crowded so I think we should have been upgraded to a suite. There were 3 of us and they did make an exception to give us all free breakfast. I appreciate that immensely. Breakfast has a decent menu but you do have to sit inside or take it up to your room. Read less

Since you have plenty of parking a gazebo for smokers is a plus. If I find a good deal might stay because beach is their. Read less

The resort is an excellent place for hanging your bathing suit located just over the bridge from the hustle and bustle of Clearwater, Fl. Dining onsite with free breakfast cooked to order—swimming pool with outside bar and outdoor cooking around the poolside. The Gulf of Mexico is in front of the hotel. Great views of the sunsets. You can walk or take the golf cart. We rented two chairs and an umbrella stands for about $30.00 per day. We ate at two offsite restaurants called Crabby Bills and Guppies on the beach.

Our stay last week was very nice! The staff could not have been more accomodating and the hotel food and beverage was very good! Would definitely stay here again! the only drawback are the rooms....while clean and neat-they are in need of an update.....very dated/old. Once again, great service and staff and very well run!
