This hotel is off the beaten path! It’s away from the action but only a short car ride or trolly ride which was free. My children(teenagers) took the trolly so they could go explore while we stayed at the hotel. Everyone was wearing mask and there was sanitizer but the elevator. This place gives you a resort feel very well! The pool was wonderful, the kids played volleyball. There was a splash pad but we didn’t have anyone that young to check it out. There was ample seating around the pool and the wait staff was very attentive! Kimi was wonderful! Plenty of towels and the restrooms were clean. There were showers in the restrooms which was a plus because we checked out and stayed to enjoy the pool. The food was average by the pool. Jet skis were a few steps away( right on the property), convenient and very affordable! The bay view room offered a wonderful view! The front of the hotel( the entrance to all rooms) was a small view of the ocean. We walked to the beach which was approximately a 10-15 minute walk. You couldn’t just cross through the properties that were directly on the beach directly across the street. You have to walk down some to an entrance. There’s a Starbucks on the property. We walked to breakfast at the mini mall right next door(less than a 5 minute walk)to the hotel. There were a few shops there, restaurants, and Dunkin doughnuts! The elevators were good, only 4 people unless you’re family. My only issue was, I never saw anyone cleaning them(that was disappointing). The room was clean but the microwave was horrendous! Looks like they picked it up from goodwill. There is a mini fridge in the room. We needed more towels due to no housekeeping but that was a breeze, they kindly brought as many as we needed quickly. Overall very nice stay. We will definitely return. Read less

We have no plans on heading back to the US until 2022, but we will definitely be booking back here. Clearwater allowed us to cancel our booking through Covid and have confirmed they will provide a refund in full.

Had a few days in Clearwater on our way from Orlando so we decided to stay here. The hotel staff was friendly. They have a small cafe that serves Starbucks coffees which was nice. Not much variety food wise though. The pool area was nice but definitely looks bigger in the photos. The hotel is literally right on the water so we had some great views. We have a family of 5 and our room had 2 beds and a pull out sofa bed, 1 bathroom. Room was too small for us we are a larger (physically) family. Also my bed was either broken or something because it wobbled. Smart TVs in the room was nice you could watch Netflix. There was a jet ski rental place on hotel grounds by the pool that I DO NOT RECOMMEND. He was very rude and not helpful at all. Also the prices were expensive compared to other places. Read less

rooms are great and in the current world the outside walkways were perfect to get to the room without a crowd. All three restaurants were good and we took a cabana for an afternoon to hide at the pool. it was perfect. we'll stay again next time we are in town.

During this time there were changes put into place, such as no housekeeping during your stay, however it was a non issue because the staff was very prompt in delivering anything you needed, such as towels, shampoo, coffee cups, etc... The hotel was very clean and offered anti bacterial gel all through out. The food was delicious and the pool was refreshing! Thank you again we will see you again. Read less
