We stayed at the Sandpearl as part of a group attending a wedding. We were there for three nights and did enjoy our stay. In addition to the nightly rate, which I guess was discounted as part of a group, there was a "resort fee" of $25 per night and a valet/parking fee of $20 per night, and each of those had additional tax added. It is a beautiful hotel with a wonderful location, but I don't feel it was worth the cost. Check in, check out, and valet staff was great.

Room Tip: If you want a view, you will pay for it.

Perfect location with amazing views! Also, in the middle of all the shops and restaurants. Love that I was offered a mimosa or champagne at check-in! The fitness area was a little disappointing- few cardio machines and weight machines with a handful of free weights. The pool area looked nice as well.

Quite simply one of the most beautiful hotels I have stayed in in the whole of Florida! We stayed in a sunset suite and it is well worth it! The staff make the stay even more enjoyable with nothing being too much for them. A particular mention to Kyle at the beach bar who looked after us very well and was there each day with a welcoming smile! The S'mores at night are a treat not to be missed and it goes without saying the sunsets are beautiful. The Spa is lovely also and not too pricey which was a pleasant surprise. All in all a very relaxing and refreshing holiday and will most definitely be using this hotel chain again. A definite on the Bucket List :-) shame we have to leave!

This is a really nice hotel with lots of thoughtful little touches. I wouldn't normally stay somewhere this expensive, but it was worth it, especially as everywhere in Clearwater seemed pricey. Rooms are big and beautifully decorated. Pool is lovely and the beach is easily accessed. The firepit is a lovely spot to sit after dark. Good gym. Great having the coffee shop in the lobby. We had some noise from the room next door during our first night (possibly wedding guests) and asked reception to sort it out. They responded very promptly and very effectively. I hope to stay here again!

Room Tip: Most rooms facing the bay have small balconies with no chairs

My husband and I went to Florida to squeeze in a blissful moment to celebrate our 20 year anniversary. With two busy middle school kids its tough to carve a few days away... but we did and the Sandpearl delivered. They catered to our every whim and with smiles and luxury - we felt pampered and cared for. Bliss... from the minute we pulled into the circle... Thank you!

Sandpearl lives up to its lovely name. All staff, from valets to concierge, including maids and waitstaff, were friendly and professional. All areas were clean and maintained, our room was clean and well stocked morning and evening. Poolside, Tate Island Grill provided the best "pool" food we've had. Caretta's was first class: our waitress, the ambience and the wonderful meal. We had a gulf front room, overlooking the pool. Great memory of sitting on our little balcony watching the sunset. Worth the price.

Room Tip: The junior suite made our four days more relaxing with the extra space

This is my favorite hotel in Florida!

It is great for families :) the rooms are amazing. The beach is beautiful and the service is awesome!

I know you can find better prices in similar resorts near by but it is worth to pay a bit more and stay here. The atmosphere of this hotel is special. This is why I keep coming back here for shirt holidays :)
