My husband had business in the Tampa/Clearwater area so I went along just to hang out while he worked. I had to WONDERFUL massages by Kathy in the spa. I would have gone everyday except for the fact she didn't work every day I was there. :( The gym had what I needed but I was very small. At least not many other people were in there working out. I stayed away from the pool all together as it was FULL of kids. I was there without mine so I didn't feel like getting splashed by everyone else's. The beach was great. Very clean. There were umbrella's with lounge chairs you could reserve for the day but I just took one of the free one's right next to them. I ate lunch everyday at Tate's Grill on the beach at the resort. Food was always great. Service was A+!! from every bartender and waitstaff.
One night my husband was working late so I ordered room service. BIG MISTAKE!!!!> It was $48 just for me with NO beverage. The chicken was TERRIBLE and the sides with it were just as bad. It was my ONLY disappointment on the trip. But I wouldn't normally order room service from a hotel so I'm not worried about every making that mistake again.
The location of the hotel is Perfect as well. Walking distance to everything! Shopping is all beachy stuff but we found one cool one with stuff we bought for ourselves and brought home to our kids (19-21), Maui Nix.
Overall great experience at this resort. We would stay here again for sure.
