The "customer service" was exceptional at levels from check-in to pool side to the restaurants. Also the cleanliness of all public areas was notable. Finally, our favorite was the live music every afternoon and every evening. Well done Shephard's Team! Scott M.

False advertising! Paid $500 for a room with a "stunning" view only to stare at a concrete wall. Extremely disappointed! Not planning to return or recommend. Not relaxing, not what we purchased! FIRST AND LAST time staying at shepard's. Management was unsatisfactory and not

This place is amazing. My husband and I found this place when searching for a place in Clearwater. We had no idea what to expect. When we arrived, we were greeted by the nicest people from the valet to the front desk to even the maintenance people. Everyone at Shephard's was

We stumbled across this and had a blast! The drinks were yummy, the band- albeit 1 guy- was good and people were having a great time. We met people from all over and got everyone up to dance the sunset away! In the area? Give it a go👍🏼

My husband and I are in our early 50's and our 3 children came with us who are in their 20's. We ALL had so much fun at the resort!! It's absolutely beautiful, the pool is large and warm and the hot tub accommodates a big group. The best part is the private beach just steps

Not necessarily. I did see families with children, but this is a live music resort. We saw people who were partying and impaired. If you have no issues with that, then it’s probably ok, but it isn’t necessarily geared for families.

You must wear your wristband at the pool if you are a guest. Others are not allowed to swim. Don't really know how closely they watch it. If you are not a guest, you do pay for parking.

We recently brought two beach chairs to the beach, no one bothered us. The beach is divided by a small rocky outcrop. The rented umbrellas and chairs are on one side. Use the other side. Almost any small beach can get that low tide fishy smell, but we never noticed it at Shephard's. If it happens, the public beach is not far away.

"Get a room with a pool view. This also includes a view to the Gulf."
"Ask for a room facing the front of the hotel if you want more quiet at night."
"Rooms 440 and 422 have lovely views of the pool and beach"
"If you are early to bed or light sleepers choose city view or tower rooms if you do not want to hear music until midnight."
"Read the reviews first"
