This resort is absolutely gorgeous from the moment you step foot in the door and see the view through the floor to ceiling windows. I will list pros and cons:
Pros-beautiful inside and out, from the downstairs lobby area to the rooms (gulf view room was amazing!!), love the Keurig brewers and 2 bottles of water in the room daily, very clean, food from room service was great, refrigerator in room, they took special notice of our anniversary and that was very much appreciated, all of the staff were so kind and accommodating, from the front desk to the housekeeping to the valet, and of course, it's steps from the powder white sand! Can't beat it!
Cons-we had to switch rooms due to noise from people next door, which was not the resort's fault, but the 2nd room wasn't nearly as perfect as our first. It was not as kept up (some wear and tear on the tub and shower curtain, a hand towel was dirty, a paper by the coffee brewer was crinkled and had a ring on it like it had gotten wet with a glass, and there was no ottoman for the chair?, plus the view was from further back. Just a shame to have to leave our perfect room for that one for our last 2 nights in paradise :(, one valet person was rude and obviously didn't care about his job (but every other person there was very nice!), you MUST use valet daily, there is no other option for parking. If you're like us and tend to come and go a lot on vacation, it can be a pain to use valet.
All in all, the pros completely outweigh any cons I listed and our stay was fantastic. I would 100% recommend the Sandpearl and I hope to return one day! Just remember there is a daily resort fee and daily valet fee, but now that I've been there, I see why-this place is amazing and worth every penny!
