This is a beautiful, charming perfectly maintained Inn. The rooms are well appointed and luxurious. The food is absolutely scrumptious. All of our meals were note worthy. We were treated like royalty (even though we are not). The beach and water are lovely.

First I am shocked that there are people out there that give a bad review of this hotel. It's unfortunate that people don't understand what this hotel means to this island and surrounding area. Now as for my review.. I stay here every year for a two day golf tournament. Every time we have stayed we hate leaving and talk... More

Spent five nights at Gasparilla Inn & Club and highly recommend it. Friendly, competent and responsive staff will welcome you. The Main Dining room was a delight both nights we chose it; however, The Pink Elephant was equally as good albeit more casual and louder. Golf cart rental is easy and this small village offers a quiet retreat. The Beach... More

We spet a week at the Gasparilla in April 2015, our second stay at this outstanding hotel. While expensive by many folks; standards it is worth every penny. Wonderful accommodations, phenomenal staff and great food. One suggestion for those considering a stay: If you plan to use one of their fine cottages, work with the reservations staff to select the... More

My wife and I have been coming to the Gasparilla Inn once or twice a year for the past 20 years. The rooms and cottages have always been luxurious, clean and comfortable. My wife prefers the cottages for the additional privacy. When we engage a cottage, we normally rent a golf cart to get around the island. I tend to... More

My family recently spent five glorious days at the Inn. We stayed in the "cottages" which are well appointed and nicely decorated. The Inn itself has a huge bar, dining room and recreation room. The pool and beach club are wonderful. Many restaurants are within walking distance and there are fun shops for shopping and browsing. The staff are charming... More

The only unpleasant part of our July 4th weekend was Diane's self-important manner of ruling over dining room seating. She actually treated guests as if they were beneath her! With at least 3/4 of the tables unoccupied, Diane very curtly informed us, "I have 224 guests..." This is far from the gracious, welcoming manner exemplified by other staff. Management should...

Had the most amazing time ! We went on Thursday thru Sunday. Had so many this for kids to do. Also had nice restaurants for adults. The cottage we stayed in was perfect! Food was fantastic. And the hotel staff was top notch ! Will hopefully be making this a new family tradition for the 4th of July.

My husband and I came here because of a special weekend that was being held here. What a lovely place! We had a great time at the event but so enjoyed the gorgeous location. Driving over the bridge to The Inn was just breathtaking and took you away to another world. The inn itself is charming with lovely chairs on... More

My partner and I went to Gasparilla for a long weekend, and overall, I loved the beach location and the seclusion of the location, but didn't like the dining services. The best part about Gasparilla is definitely the access to the Beach Club, which is a short walk away. I was originally disappointed to find out that Gasparilla is located... More
