We were down for a family wedding at the Rusty Pelican and looking for some place close, reasonably priced, with bay views and room for all. After doing some research I selected a 2 bedroom at Sailport. I made some specific requests that were all acknowledged and, although no promises were made, it was a slam dunk! Awesome location with the best bay views possible in a quiet area of the complex. All staff were polite and friendly and went out of their way to ask if everything was good..The only down sides were due to other guests, like the fools next door who fed the sea gulls and put their trash outside of the door for the birds to attack (how lazy can you be???) and parents who would not control their kids in the pool area.
It was wonderful to have lots of space, a full kitchen and fantastic views from the balcony. We saw incredible sunsets, dolphins and rays, all from our balcony. I wasn't looking for a luxury hotel - this it like staying in someone's condo. The whole experience exceeded my expectations. Who needs a fitness center when the best fitness you can get is to go for a run in the morning, go swimming, rent some kayaks or take a long walk? If you want to stay inside, order room service, watch TV or use a treadmill, maybe this isn't the place for you, but if you want to enjoy all that the area has to offer away from the hub bub of Tampa with all the conveniences of a full kitchen, living area and amazing bay view...all at a very reasonable price, you will love this place!
Special shout out to Nick for being so friendly! Hope to see you all again soon :)
