I would definitely wait until the renovations are done. Lots of noise and workmen on our floor. The original room they gave us had an an issue so we were moved to another gulf front room the following day. Unfortunately, the new room also included a view of the second floor roof right under our balcony. I was told that this was only available room. We found out the following day that there were a lot of construction noise and workmen on our floor. At least nine rooms on our hallway alone are being renovated. They offered to move us once again. I declined because I didn’t want to pack up again. I understand that the hotel is under renovation, but the hotel could have upgraded us to a room away from the construction if they knew that most of the regular gulf front rooms would be affected by the renovation. It seemed to me that management was more concerned that we be given the room that we paid for, which is fine but I didn’t pay for a room that would negatively affect my vacation.

There is no better place to stay on Clearwater Beach! From the minute you step out of your car, the greeting and exceptional display of being treated as family begins. Every employee does their very best to make sure that there is nothing left out that will leave you feeling you missed while staying at the Sandpearl. Having vacationed at Clearwater Beach for 38+ years, we have many family memories that will always bring us bank annually to the Sandpearl. Can’t wait till next years trip!!

Nice resort, amazing location both for beach and night life. Food options in resort were solid, decent value. Service was really great. Pool was nice, beach is beautiful. Under renovation, but it didn’t cause any discomfort. Only complaint was cost of alcohol and strict rules regarding any outside drinks. Understandable to have a rule, but we ran a pool tab for $3k and they still were watching like hawks. I’d return.

I booked a junior suite, which had a lovely view with a nice balcony. The room and hotel are very dated!! i think a renovation was being done now. The suite lacked the attention that is needed to earn a 5-star review. Upon arrival no robes, no slippers, no water the second day, no pen to write a note, bathroom had previously been flooded and had water damage around the shower and the base of the tub. But, say la vie we spent most of our time at the spa or the pool or beach. I would say there are way too many chairs around the pool, you cannot even get in between the chairs! Hats off to the spa they did wow us after two really bad treatments. The spa could use updating as well, but that's another review. Everyone at the hotel was super service oriented except by the pool, they seemed tired and not as attentive as everyone else, at times you had to go looking for servers. The restaurant, well I already did a review of that one on their page! We will visit once again, the location was fabulous, the mini get away was relaxing and we loved Clearwater Beach!

I feel like these positive reviews from the past week must have stayed at a different hotel, at the very least a different wing. I booked this trip months ago under a “summer sale”. They clearly meant “we are undergoing renovations and still want to make $$”. The construction noise was awful. The ceiling and walls were vibrating. We weren’t able to converse at a normal level in the room. Unfortunately, it rained the entire time so we weren’t able to just run to the beach or pool to get away. I spoke with management for reassurance that it wouldn’t be continuing on Saturday. Manager advised they would be doing construction on Saturday but no demolition so it’s should be quieter. We should have immediately been offered a different room. It would have cost them nothing. I was offered a waiver of early checkout penalties if I chose to leave, but traveling with a pet, I wasn’t able to find another hotel in two hours. If my guests hadn’t flown in, I would have checked out and gone home. Beyond that obvious failure, we had no hot water after the first day. We improvised and booked spa services at a hotel down the street so that we could use their shower. No minibar in room as advertised. The entire property is dated so I understand the renovation. When I booked, the pet fee was $75 a night. Final confirmation raised that fee to $100 a night. I initialed two pages of warnings about being charged if my pet made noise or in any way disturbed other guests or caused damaged. Fair enough. Even if my dog had barked, im not sure anyone could have heard it over the construction noise. The manager assured me that the hotel will be amazing after the renovation is completed. I won’t be finding out. You got me once, Sandpearl, and I felt forced to stay and continued to spend money freely at your “resort”. Never again. Opal Collection will never get my business again. The two stars are for La Caretta and the check-out staff.

Responded 1 week ago
Dear Guest, Thank you for your review of your stay with us. I am very sorry for the inconveniences you experienced. We are going thru a renovation right now and some days, during which the bathroom tiles are being removed can be quite loud to the surrounding rooms. We normally do try to place guests in other areas of the hotel that wont be affected by the noise but sometimes due to occupancy that is not possible. I am very sorry. Having bad weather during your period of time with us certainly didnt help the matter. We certainly wish you change your mind and visit us again once the renovations are complete which should be by years end. Regards, Eric Waltz General Manager

3rd stay here and as always wonderful. Can’t say enough good things. Our corner suite so roomy and comfortable. Staff is so incredibly customer service oriented and happy - they love their jobs and it shows. Tate’s Island Grill and pool area so enjoyable. Don’t need a car .. everything within walking distance and what’s not they have a shuttle. It is expensive but SO worth it. We feel like royalty.

Love the vibe here! Best location on the beach. The pool area is fun, and the water was a good temp, not too hot as can happen in Summer.The food at Caretta on the Gulf was spectacular (I'm lookin at you short rib, lamb, and lobster!) The staff is friendly, accomodating, and chill. Adirondack rockers on the patio make the morning and the evening. I love how they don't nickle and dime you for every little detail ie: all the free water you want, nespresso coffee maker cuz let's face it keurig sucks! free champage in the lobby, valet was only $25/day, towels with no rules, chairs to borrow for the beach. I highly recommend the corner jr king suite. It's pricey but so worth it with the view of the beach and the pool! If I had to find something to pick on it would be that the decor is a little dated. But dated as in 2005 not 1985. It's super clean and nice. The crowning jewel of this fantastic stay was the service at Caretta on the Gulf. I told my husband that I wish I was as good at anything as our server, Argelia, is at her job. My husband regularly asks questions about menu items before ordering. So I always have a front row seat to see how knowledgable a server is of the menu and their kitchen. Argelia had the most product knowledge of any server, ever, period. It's obvious that she sincerely cares that each patron gets exactly what will make them happy. She's a true professional and a credit to this resort. We look forward to staying here many more times!

This is a lovely resort. I gave four stars because it’s very dated. Customer service is great. The outdoor pool area is very nice. Beach area is very close to the resort. I would stay near again. The rooms are a little dated but we were told that rooms are being refurbished during the week.
