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!

We started our 1st annual girls trip in Clearwater at the Sandpearl Resort. Service was top notch. Everyone on staff truly makes you feel like you’re their priority. The rooms were spacious enough for 2 women, and well appointed (- a microwave) centrally located to some of the absolute best restaurants on the strand. The on site restaurant is so so good and the breakfast buffet with a view is recommended. There’s also a bar/grill on the grounds but I found it to be overpriced for the taste/portions served; however they do serve you on the sand. Definitely rent the umbrellas but understand they are first come first served. Overall, this resort gives you the feeling of being a VIP and that’s always nice when traveling. Their shining star really is the staff, from the bellmen to housekeeping. Will definitely return during our girls trips Read less

Not being into hotel management, my initial reaction is that the resort is over-staffed.

Not being into hotel management, my initial reaction is that the resort is over-staffed. I later realized that this was all meant to accomplish one thing: to provide guests with a memorable experience. For example – notwithstanding that we stayed during the Memorial Day weekend – there were no long lines at check-in, the staff was courteous and friendly, cabanas were available for a reasonable price (which included a small ref and safe), a staff member escorted us to the cabana location, their free shuttle service was so convenient, esp. since there were 9 of us, housekeeping is usually overlooked – but not at this resort.

Excellent Opal resort with outstanding white sand beach and beach-side restaurant . Services are unbeatable and always associated with daily delivered delicious chocolates to our room. Not to forget the best delicious food at Carrera hotel restaurant. Cocktails are great, atmosphere and view unbeatable. At Tate’s the fried grouper sandwich was stellar, and my wife’s Caesar Salad with grilled Grouper was delicious. Great spot for family vacation. Highly recommend! Read less

We have been staying at Sandpearl for the past six years. It is a stellar resort. From the property, their rooms and the incredible staff. Very family friendly as well as just for a couples get away. Sunsets are amazing. You won’t be disappointed staying at Sandpearl Resort.

Wow! That’s all we can say… my husband and I flew down to Clearwater for a quick three day getaway for our anniversary this past weekend. The resort, the grounds, the staff, the food and drink are absolutely incredible! We have been to many five star resorts and this has rivaled any of them, And is in the US, so a big bonus! Taylor and Cory, the pool and beach staff, are top-notch servers, and we left the resort as friends! We will be back, very very soon! Thank you, SandPearl! we walked to another broken egg for breakfast every morning, loved dinner at the beachcomber right down the street, also had a fabulous dinner in the resort at Cordetta‘s. So nice to be able to get away, not have to rent a car and walk to every destination easily! Read less
