“Great Value, Awesome Location, Friendly Staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

I would really like to give them 4 1/2 stars. I was really impressed with the staff and the effort they took to make our stay enjoyable. From the front desk, bell stand and service at the flying bridge restaurant all were concerned with our needs and requests.

For example there was some kind of cooler meltdown and many items were not available on the lunch menu so we ordered pizzas from the Pizza Hut for the kids with the help of our waiter. He could have just read what wasn't available but he was really proactive in finding a solution for us.

I was scared to book my reservations because of the terrible photos of the bedspreads but I was thrilled to see that they have gone to a more basic white bedding. I would give the Guy Harvey Resort a solid 5 stars if I could deal with the terribly TACKY resort motif of bright colors and old rattan couches. But unless you are incredibly fussy and can afford the $700 per night at the Sandpearl Guy Harvey Outpost gives you all the amenities, service, location and activities to meet the needs of any family beach vacation. I would recommend to anyone.

Came to town for the Shrine Game week and was initially disappointed I was sent here & not the main TradeWinds property, where I've happily stayed before. I quickly realized the Guy Harvey Outpost is the better place to stay. It's a short walk on the beach to anything you want at TradeWinds.

The rooms here are fresher and more modern. The WiFi is much more reliable. The pools are less crowded and the adult pool is tucked away and feels private. Staff was nothing short of fantastic; everyone says a sincere hello and they're great in advising about the local area. Workout facility had free weights & an elliptical machine that actually works (plus other stuff). The beach is just awesome & no giant slide to obstruct the view.

Two minor gripes: the curtains in the bedroom didn't close 100% and let some light bleed through. and the hot tub at the adult pool was being repaired for two days.

Best vacation. People were so friendly and the room was one of the nicest I have stayed in. Would go back in a heartbeat. The beach was clean and water sports were available. Had an incredible time paddle-boating. The bands were lots of fun to listen to.

Room Tip: Choose a room looking over the ocean.

I live in Tampa and was trying to make a reservation for a getaway by the coast of Saint Petersburg. I got a very good deal and got there 4 p.m. The room was ready and the staff was very courteous. The room is indeed not gigantic since I reserved a standard room with view to the parking lot. I have to say that this fact didn't bother me much since the room was quiet, clean, well decorated in relaxing colors and the rest of the hotel was so nice to hang around. Of course, that is a room for a maximum of two people, with a small breakfast table/chairs, microwave, sink, small refrigerator. In terms of space for luggage, it could be tricky if you are carrying more than two pieces of luggage, but you can accommodate pretty well if you unpack everything and hang them in the closet and fold items into the drawers, then your luggage can me placed in the corner of the room with no harm to the overall space. One of the pools was located by the beach and they had free drinks from 5-6pm, along with a great sunset at the see. My reservation included resort amenities, which included, free towels by the beach, free cabanas, free wi-fi and free parking. There is also a nice fitness for workout aficionados. I had a great time and the best of my stay there was the fact that the location was so close to one of the most beautiful beaches of Florida. Definitely will go back!
