First of all, I should preface this review by stating that we used our Honors points to book this stay. So, I'll admit that I could possibly have a different take had we spent $200+ per night to stay here. However, I still feel like I would have been very pleased with our stay here, even at this price.
After reading reviews, I was a little worried that the hotel would be in disrepair or outdated. I thought the hotel and rooms were very adequately appointed. Not luxurious but up to date and clean. The biggest draw of this hotel is location and its beach.
The beach is fabulous. Wide, white sandy perfection. There is a great little tiki bar on-site (the only place in Clearwater in which alcoholic beverages are allowed on the beach -so we were told). The bar offers a $5 drink special each day and the drinks are mixed fresh and yummy.
The other thing we enjoyed was the kids beach play area. There is a large beach umbrella with lots of kids beach toys and a cute little wooden sailboat. Our 5 year old had a blast! And mom and dad were able to relax on the beach while he played.
Also, the heated pool was very comfortable. I'm typically frustrated with other hotels that boast heated pools only to find them cold and uncomfortable. We were able to spend a lot of time in the pool in Decemer. A major plus for us!
We will definitely be back to this hotel. We had a wonderful and relaxing time.
