On our way to take our son back to school at UF we decided to take a side trip to Clearwater. We absolutely loved the Sandpearl Resort. The location is perfect directly on the beach, one of only two hotels that are. The employees were very nice and helpful. I was disappointed though when I asked if it was possible to get upgraded and was told there were no available upgrades and that we already had a beautiful bay view. Our view was of a building, not so nice. It ended up not mattering as we had gorgeous weather every day and didn't spend much time in the room. I wish she had been honest or upgraded us as the resort didn't seem very busy and we were leaving before the weekend. Having said that, we had a fabulous time, loved the restaurant by the pool, had lunch and drinks there all three days and enjoyed all three meals. The pool area was nice and offered plenty of seating options. We were able to get chairs with and without umbrellas to accommodate each family member's preference. The towel hut also lends out noodles which were fun to take into the gulf. I think the beach umbrella fee should be included in the $25 resort fee. It's upsetting to pay so much for the room, parking, and resort fee and then have to pay to sit on the beach. We only sat on the beach one of the 3 days. The location of the hotel was wonderful, we could walk to restaurants, shops and ice cream parlors. All in all LOVED Clearwater Beach and hope to return next summer. Forgot to mention the rooms, they were very large, we had 2 queen size beds and a sleeper sofa. Very comfortable.
