Best Gulf Coast Resort

I am looking for a nice resort on the beach in the gulf for my wife and I to stay in June for 5 nights. Oceanfront is a must. Spa and watersports would be nice as well.

We did Marriott Marco Island a few years ago and loved it. But looking to try a new spot. Any suggestions?

Read the Clearwater Beach forum and see if anything catches your eye. Fly into Tampa or St. Petersburg airport.

I would look at South Seas reosrt Captiva if you fly into RSW, and if you fly into TPA I would look at the Ritz in Sarasota. While the hotel is locted DT (near lots of good places to eat) it has a beach club just over the bridge they take you to on Lido Key and is pretty swish.

Sandpearl Resort on Clearwater Beach. It has a spa, and walk to everything.
