“Very convenient location and great barbecue”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2013

We stayed at Sailport for the second time and "downsized" to a one bedroom/one bath condo. it was perfectly fine for the 2 of us. The view is nice from the balcony though it was freezing here this March! One convenient thing this trip was that one of us got sick and didn't want to go out to eat. So the other was able to order a full barbecue dinner from a "wagon" on-site by the pool and pick it up an hour later. It was delicious too! Having 2 nice flat screen TV's in the until was great too. The other night we loved our dinner nearby at Bahama Breeze.......so easy to get to from here.

My family and I stayed at Sailport Waterfront Suites for 4 nights and it was wonderful. We had room 424, one bedroom renovated room on the 4th floor and have no complaints about the room at all. It was very clean, nice furniture, full kitchen with everything you need if you plan to eat in. Check in/out was very easy and like most previous reviews stated, the staff is very friendly (especially Sherise!). They tell you that there won't be housekeeping until the 3rd day, but our experience was that they came by everyday to change towels, take out trash, etc. My only wish is that there were more of a beach for walking, but I knew there wouldn't be when making reservation. There was a lot of noise coming from bar across the bay, but this is not Sailport's fault in any way. Althought it was spring break and booked full, it was very quiet and you could not hear people from next room. Overall great experience - would come back and definitely recommend to friends.

Room Tip: Ask for renovated room on top floor.

We stayed at Saliport for husband to have surgery at LSI. The service we received was fantastic, everyone tried to make us feel welcome and as comfortable as possible. The shuttle to and from the Institute was great, and day of the surgery was even escorted to the room by Harry the manager. We found a lovely treat and card left in out room. The view from our room was beautiful. Just wish we could have stayed longer for a real vacation. We had no complaints and will stay here again if in Tampa area.

Our room was on the 3rd floor and every window overlooked the ocean where we enjoyed beautiful sunsets and plenty of sea life (sting rays, ducks, birds, fish). No complaints with the room itself except that it did need paper towels and salt/pepper.

Our room was only attended once by housekeeping and that was on the 4th day of our 5 day stay. We had to take out our own trash and ask repeatedly for an extra blanket.

The shuttle service is great if you are going to the Laser Spine Institute or one of the 3 restaurants within the 4 miles radius. If you need to go to the Walmart 5.8 miles away, however, it will cost $30 round trip. Our suggestion would be to rent a car if you fly in.

We stayed at Sailport when going to the preseason baseball games in Clearwater. The kitchen was adequately equipped so we could fix our own breakfast and lunches. Needed 2 bedrooms and also had 2 bathrooms. The view of the bay was beautiful and even got use of the pool. Walked to a nearby restaurant for dinner. We would stay here again. Clean.

This is a very nice resort! Our room overlooked the bay and the sunset views from the balcony were absolutely breathtaking. If you manage to tear away from your suite, there is a heated pool to enjoy. We loved every second we were there from check-in to check-out. No complaints!!! And game day BBQ stand offers authentic soul food that'll make you slap someone. We will be back next weekend for sure!! Also check out the rusty pelican. It is simply amazing!

Stayed here with my husband and another couple for a weekend. Our room was enormous with two large bedrooms (one king and one queen), two bathrooms, a fully equipped kitchen, living area and balcony. It was on the very end of the building so there were water views from every room which was just beautiful. The sunset views across the bay were absolutely amazing. Cute little fishing pier and "beach" area (man-made sandy area - it's not really a beach) on one side of the hotel and a nice pool on the other side. Highly recommend Honeymoon Island State Park which is simply gorgeous and Dunedin which is a lovely town to walk around. The restaurant that you can see across the bay from the hotel (Whiskey Joe's) is great and has a fantastic outdoor bar area on the beach with fire-pits, volleyball nets, cornhole etc. Great hang out spot in the evening. The hotel shuttle bus will take you there and back for free.
