“DGretreat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

The staff here was fantastic and very helpful in accommodating myself and close to 100 sisters from our organization. The room was gorgeous as well as the view. The private beach was a perfect place to relax during our work week. Staff here was probably the nicest I've ever met at any type of hotel, especially when checking almost 100 of us in. Overall, there are great restaurants within walking distance, a nice private beach, a pool, and every rooms were gorgeous. I will most definitely be staying here again with or without the 100 other members of my organization. Thank you so much!

Room Tip: I was in room 351 and it had a great view!

Great location! It is secluded yet within close driving distance to amazing beaches and attractions.

They were very accommodating, helpful, and provided wonderful service!

We had a retreat and stayed for two nights and had a wonderful time!

Amazing place!

Sailports suites was MORE than accommodating of our 100+ girls that stayed there for our retreat. We had an amazing time and couldn't have asked for better staff! The rooms were clean, the staff was friendly, and they were more than willing to help. THANK YOU SAILPORT!!! We had an amazing time.

We stayed here last year and had an awesome stay. We were excited to come back this year and see the renovations promised Boy were we suprised on how beautiful the new rooms are. I travel to Tampa for business regularly and I usually stay at a local brand hotel but not anymore. Sailports new room package is comparable to any top brand hotel and add in the full suites with full kitchens and it's a no brainer. Stainless steel appliances and granite in the room I was in. Kudos to the management amazing improvements. Staff is outstanding even better than last year. I will be back.

We stayed in one of the renovated 2 bedroom suites on the 4th floor. The view was beautiful and we were pleasantly surprised. We had just left Orlando after spending a week there and arrived at Sailport a little early, and they let us check in anyway. The only issue we had was the outdated sofabed which was very uncomfortable. Everything else was great. We enjoyed spending evenings outside by the water which was very soothing. The staff was attentive and friendly. This was the relaxing part of our trip and we got it. One suggestion I would like to make is to supply an additional frying pan and a knife bigger than a steak knife.

Room Tip: I would suggest a 2 bedroom on the 4th floor if you are not afraid of heights. If you stay in the e...

2nd time here and best weather this trip! The place was intended for a getaway at the end of a business trip and it sure fit the bill.

A tiny private beach overlooking Tampa bay, a nice pool, huge sun deck sand volleyball court all indicated a getaway it would be... And it was. Half a day on the little beach all alone was perfect, then to the pool and approx 12 others were there but I still felt solitude and tranquility. Look at the photo off my deck chair-What a peaceful view!

No restaurant on site. Rooms are basically 1-2 BR apartment/Condos - a bit dated but as you normally see in Florida near a beach. The room was adequate but not glamorous. BUT-Every room faces the bay and has a private balcony (you don't see your neighbors and they don't see you)!

I will return and I hope my positive review doesn't make this place a sell out when I return!!!
