I enjoyed my stay in Clearwater, but wouldn't return to The Sandpearl. The resort itself was nice; good facilities and comfortable rooms. The problem was hidden costs. There was $25 per room per day resort tax and $25 per umbrella per day for use with the sun loungers on the beach. This was the general theme for use of most of the hotel and wasn't obvious when I booked.
The overall service was mixed. One day we were banned from the pool and beach so aerial photos could be taken, and checkout was automatic and charged to my card without discussion or any personal touch.
I think a hotel of this quality (and cost) could do better.
