I live in St. Pete and spent most of the day at Marina Cove visiting family from out of town this past weekend. The grounds of this hotel are gorgeous and laid back. Around every corner was a new surprise and a new view. If you have kids or a large group, this is an awesome place to just hang out. I did find the main pool to be very nice but the 2nd was looks like it was either dirty or in need of some repair work. The beach area where the kids played was clean and I saw no debris washed up there. I have seen people complain about this in other posts but it could just be debris comes in with the tide. Speaking of tide, at low tide it did get smelly but again this is a FL problem and depending on the time of year, you will find this common in some places more than others. Overall a a really good bang for your buck.
