“We enjoyed our stay”
Reviewed April 26, 2012

We spent one night there and liked it enough to stay another night. The suite was very comfortable and the staff were friendly and helpful. We would like to return to Dunedin. It is a nice town and the beaches are lovely.

This is a clean, remodeled condo/hotel. It is located on St. Joseph sound with beautiful views to Caladesi Island (directly west) and Clearwater Beach (south west). There are a couple of docks to moor at if you have a boat, but I don't think you can launch from here.
The rooms we stayed in were right above the Tiki Bar (we were worried about that at first, but it was not an issue as the bar is strictly closed at 10 p.m., and the clientele were very sedate.)
Our rooms were about 15' square, but included a kitchenette with granite countertops and an apartment sized refrigerator. Everything was freshly and tastefully redecorated. The bathroom was very small, but clean and modern. There is a laundry room on site with only 2 washer/dryers.
There are two pools and a hot tub with umbrella tables interspersed between them. The tiki bar area is a little dirty and worn looking. (They need to separate out the bar from the "service" area a little better). We had drinks for happy hour one night and they were very generous with the alcohol which might justify the high prices. It was very relaxing to sit at the tables and watch the sunset over Caladesi Island.
A few downers: the first night we were awakened in the middle of the night several times by a broken fire alarm. Everyone in the place jumped out of bed and ran to the balconies while the Dunedin Fire Department checked the alarm. This happened five (!) times in one night. I think that the age of the building is showing, but to the management's credit they got the alarm fixed the next day and the problem didn't reoccur. Also, they will provide towels for the pool area, but you have to "check" them out. When we left we returned the towels, but then a few days later a $30 charge showed up on our credit card. When I called, the manager said it was because we did not return the towels. He did promise to remove the charge when I told him I had returned the towels the day we left. (You might want to make sure you get a return receipt for the pool towels when you return them!) Also, don't expect to use the wireless network in your room. Despite trying several times and calling the front desk, neither my iPad nor my son's laptop could ever connect. They do mention that the building's structure prevents good wireless reception and they suggest you come to the Tiki Bar area or the office to connect.
Overall, you can tell that the management of this place is trying hard to make things clean and comfortable. There are a few amenities that might seem a little strange or amateurish, but the price is right and this place is comfortable and clean.
On our last day we had breakfast at the 4th floor restaurant and enjoyed the breezes and view. The food was pretty good as well, but nothing extraordinary. Still it was worth doing.

Room Tip: Choose a room facing St. Joseph sound for beautiful sunsets and views of the pools.

Thanks for your comments. We're glad you enjoyed your stay and we apologize for the problem with the fire alarm and the pool towel charge. We determined that a fire alarm pull station had become corroded due to the waterfront environment. It has since been replaced- again sorry for the disturbance. We appreciate you bringing the pool towel charge to our attention and we apologize for the error. You'll be glad to know that the tiki bar is being relocated and newly built on a new deck between the north and south building. We hope you'll come back and see us again soon.

We spent one night at the Beso Del Sol and wished it could have been more. We a a great studio on the second floor overlooking the pools and St Joseph sound. The room had a very comfortable king size bed, ceramic tile floors and was nicely decorated. The Kitchenette was fully equipped. The bathroom lacked a fan but had a window you could open and the shower could use a light fixture, other than that the room was exceptional.

The hotel staff was extremely nice and very helpful. The entire complex was clean and had security keeping an eye on the Tiki Bar and parking lot. Great spot, don't hesitate to stay if you get the chance.

Room Tip: The studios overlook the water.

Called last minute and they gave us a great price. The room was spotless, beautiful, and the staff was so klind and friendly! We ate breakfast there the next morning... OH MY GOODNESS it was wonderful! and the price was just right; less than what a regular resturant would have been.
We would reccomend Beso Del Sol Resort to anyone. !!!

Room Tip: Water side...beautiful view of the bay. We slept with the doors open. IN FEBRUARY :0)

We rented a unit at Beso Del Sol from VRBO and got an awesome price. The room was a one bedroom with a pullout couch. We were on the third floor and there was an elevator that helped a lot because we traveled with a 15 month old. It 2 bathrooms and a kitchenette off of the living area. This was a condo but I couldn't see anyone living in it, It seemed like it was made as a rental. The location was great, we were a short drive from anywhere that we wanted to go: beaches, bars, restaurants, and entertainment. There is a bar with live music on weekends located on premise. The prices were a bit high but it did have it's own bar pool and water view. Overall our unit was clean and I would stay here again if I was in the area.
