Bilmar Beach Resort

St Pete Beach, Tampa and Clearwater/St Pete

Virgin rating

The hotel

This seaside family-fun hotel has a prime beachfront location, you can take to the sand for a sunbathe, or the sea for some kayaking at ease. A little wander along the beachfront trail will take you to St John's Pass one way, or St Pete's Beach the other (you can also get the free island hopper if it's a bit too hot for walking) so you've got restaurants, bars and shopping in either direction. Back at the hotel the sundeck is a great place to catch the rays and enjoy some family games together. And Wave Zone will keep the kids happy, with more games and a pool table, whilst you grab a drink or a snack at the cafe. When the sun is setting, head to Sloppy Joes for happy hour out on the deck, and no doubt you'll be tempted to stay for dinner with the aroma of fresh seafood around.

Took 3 tries to get a sub par room at best. Old and currently doing construction. Booked through a 3 party and wouldn’t honor room I purchased. Would never recommend place to anyone. The only positive was hotel close to restaurant very old and dated.

Beautiful hotel on a spectacular beach. Views from the tower rooms are gorgeous, totally recommend having morning coffee on the balcony. Beds are super comfy and shower was great too. But the staff is what makes this place so special! Every person went out of their way to be friendly and helpful.
