Sandpearl is AMAZING...definitely worth the extra money, and especially if you are thinking of having a wedding in the area...it's the perfect location. We had a smaller destination wedding at the Sandpearl (Reception Dinner was held at Caretta's) and the ceremony was on the beach. Jessica Gillespie our event coordinator was amazing, every detail was handled in the appropriate manner and the day was perfect and beautiful. The Sandpearl Resort in itself is gorgeous, the pool is amazing, the staff is friendly and the food is terrific. Yes, it's on the more expensive side when it comes to resorts (Some of our wedding guests wanted to save $ so they stayed at the Hilton Clearwater Beach) and walked over to the Sandpearl for the events...and it worked out well too..except everything is by far better at the Sandpearl so people didn't want to leave!!! The rooms were beautiful (we were in a Junior Gulfview Suite #672)...GORGEOUS view...literally everything was perfect. Like I said...YES it's more expensive...YES there are cheaper options..But you get what you pay for. There are many restaurants within walking distance (Crabby Bills is awesome, and has an amazing happy hour 1-7pm $1.50 Beers)...Also Frenchy's Rockaway Grill next door is awesome too! A lot of our wedding group didn't rent cars and we got along just fine! :) It was a great time overall and I am waiting to go back! :) The beach is great...literally everything is perfect (even AJ Pierzynski was there with his family vacationing just fyi).....Not sure why people give this place poor reviews...I like nice places and have been to many 5 star resorts...and this is by far the best place I've stayed at in Florida. :) :)
