“Sailport was awesome!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2010

At $69 a night for a one bedroom suite, it can not be beaten with a stick! My fiance & I decided we were going to go to Tampa for our 7 year anniversary. We looked online for a 2 night stay for a great value. We found Sailport & we were honestly a little worried because it seemed to good to be true, but excited, I went ahead & reserved it. We live in Fort Myers Beach, FL so it was about a 2 1/2 hour ride. Upon arrival, the front desk manager said that who ever took our reservation booked our arrival night for the next night, not the one we wanted, but that was quickly solved.
When we entered the one bedroom suite (#415), we were amazed! It was huge & so comfortable! We immediately went onto the balcony, it was at night, so we could not see much but the next morning, we found it to be so peaceful & relaxing to wake up & have coffee on the balcony & listen to the sounds of nature. We loved that Sailport had its own sandy beachy parts to it with chairs & hammocks. When our 2 night stay was over, we were truly sad to be leaving. We will be considering Sailport Resort for our honeymoon plans in November & we will refer to family & friends!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2010

Went on a 5 day vacation with my family and a babysitter. We stayed in a one bedroom with the bunk beds and fold out sleeper sofa. The room was very nice and clean. I read the reviews that there wasnt much room to walk around the bed in the one bed room but there was a large closet and a dresser, we had plenty of room to store our things. The view was great and the service was great. The pool was well maintained and always had fresh towels. We had no complaints what so ever. For a price of 82 dollars a night it was a great value. The internet was a little slow but It worked and we were not charged any extra for it like a lot of hotel rooms do. I was extremely satisfied with this hotel and I will be staying there when I go back to Tampa.

We were recommended to stay here by a family member who lives across Tampa. The location is appealing enough, at the tip of a peninsula in Tampa Bay. The staff is quite accomodating but there seemed to be an aura of "past greatness" about the place. It's like it was THE PLACE to stay when it was new, but as the years have slid, or crept, or rushed by, Sailport hasn't quite kept up. Oh, it is no doubt a great place for the extended families who never sleep, constantly argue, shout in the hallways at all hours -- in short, you wouldn't notice if what you regard as normal at home is continual familial bickering and arguing and frequent bursts of loud shouting at all hours day and night.
it is real close and convenient to the airport.
The coffee is very good in the lobby -- with danishes, to boot.
The view from our room (southeast towards the bay with the sand volleyball court and sea-wall closer in) was nice. Never-the-less, we really wanted to SLEEP at night and had much trouble due to the afore-mentioned partying/shouting/etc. going on outside the f
building in/on the 'resort' grounds and, especially, in nearby rooms and the hallway.

The price was right and we had a gorgeous view of the bay from our patio! The pics don't do it justice. The room was great and had a fully furnished kitchenette w/ silverware, plates, cups, bottle opener, and dishwasher. Bed was pretty comfy too.

I found this "Resort" online It looked and sounded great (online!)
I made reservations with "ALEX" ( The Busch Garden Package) I reserved three 1 bedroom suites for two nights each.
I arrived to check in May 29,201, We went to the rooms, they were nothing like the web site or the desk clerk, Alex decribed when he took my reservations in April of 2010.
No plasma screen tv! there was small 9 in tv in the bedroom/med tv in the living room, Room #332 was dirty, the oven hadn't been cleaned there was caked on food! , the stove was dirty, the blender also had dried food on it! The fridge was damaged and the icemaker made a loud grating sound (we shut it off!!!) I checked the silverware and found a knife with dried food on it! I was shocked!!There was a broken curtain rod in the bedroom,which the maint. man repaired with masking tape! I requested another room and was told they were sold out! I cancelled the three suites, but then rebooked them as it was already 2pm. We stayed but we will not be back!!!!!!!!!!!
