Saddlebrook Resort Tampa
Ranked #4 of 8 Hotels in Wesley Chapel
Reviewed March 9, 2007

This hotel appears to get much of its business from corporations which leaves its regular guests feeling like 2nd class citizens. For example, try to relax by the (unheated) fountain courtyard pool & be prepared to be moved along at 2pm because they have to 'set up for an event'.
Lack of chairs around the main pool.
Golf - a round at this time of year will set you back $145 plus $50 to rent clubs.

Rooms; we had a 2 bedroomed suite. On the surface; very nice. But don't look too closely. Dust everywhere. The same dead fly was on the carpet when we arrived & was still there when we left.
Fully equipped kitchen? If that means no microwave, 1 dessert spoon and some teeny tiny bowls not big enough to drown a mouse in then yes, it's fully equipped.
Noisy. We were on the ground floor so you can hear everything upstairs - even people walking across the floor. Not good at 1am & 5am.
The weekend; we were woken up at 7am on the Saturday by a man mowing the green. A swift phone call to security moved him along to annoy other guests.
FOOD. Very poor and VERY expensive. Tough filet and seriously old watercress served as a garnish; so apalling in fact I picked it off our plates & handed it straight to our server to return to the kitchen.
Polo lounge. Beware. If you ask for a Monte cristo coffee you're likely to be presented with a cigar. When explaining that it is, in fact, a liquor coffee we were told 'I don't think we have any of those out back'. Hmmmmmmmmmmm.

And of course, when you include an 18% gratuity, where's the incentive to go that extra mile?

The good? Simmons beautyrest pillowtop beds & lovely pillows.

Do yourself a favour & check in somewhere else.
