We recently returned from a 4-night stay at the Alden and we loved this resort! We have three young children, ages 6, 5, and 3, and we all had a great time. We stayed in the Nassau suites overlooking the pool area, and our room was very clean and well maintained each day. All of the hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. The kids loved the pool and spa, which were very clean, and it was great to have a playground next to the cabana so the kids could play nearby or sip smoothies with us while we enjoyed a colada and conversation. On the first day, we had a problem with our shower not draining, and when we called the front desk, they sent someone to fix it right away. There are fantastic restaurants all along that stretch of road - one of our favorites was Crabby Bills. We also enjoyed Fort de Soto park and the Florida Aquarium in Tampa. If you go to the Aquarium with kids, make sure they wear a swimsuit because the outdoor water park was awesome!
Overall, the Alden was a wonderful place to stay with kids. It's a perfect blend of a good price and great quality. We were happy just to stay at the resort all day and enjoy the pool, cabana/playground, and the beach.
