excellent hotel very accommodating

Posted Apr 18, 2014
Pros: How pleasant everybody was
Cons: The elevators were very slow, and the wait was long at times
Location: The location was perfect for anything you wanted to do, if it was water sports or just dining
my stay was very pleasant, all the staff was very helpful and seemed to go out of their way to make sure you were comfortable,and if there was anything you needed. Housekeeping was very good,they worked around your schedule,if you felt like staying in bed late they,they would wait until you were ready to clean your room Overall my experience at the hotel was very pleasing and would recommend it to all my friends

Right on the beach, great shrimp!

Posted Apr 16, 2014
Pros: The staff, food.
Cons: Not hauling food from the restaurant on the elevators.
Location: The beach is one of the best in the world
The hotel has a great staff. It is worn but kept up. Lots of smoking, on balconies, outdoor restaurants, on the beach. The hotel to the north was very loud. They had a wedding one night, ( in a large tent), that made it impossible to be out on the balcony. That was close to a deal wrecker for me. If you like it a bit more quite, jan feb are better months. The party was in full swing April 1.

Beach bar is great, hotel rooms NOT

Posted Apr 15, 2014
Pros: Spinners rooftop restaurant and Bongos Beach Bar are quite possibly the best on the beach.
Location: It is right on the beach in the middle of the strip.
I checked in and my room was small and misshaped. The room wasn't cleaned properly and there was long hair on the bed and in the bathroom. I was on the 3rd floor and the sewer drainage truck was outside my window in the parking lot at 7AM for hours and noisy. They moved me to a gulf view room on the 4th floor which was much better. The pool is in a terrible spot and it's tiny. It is shaded the first half of the day and the hotel is situated close to the beach so it was a wind tunnel. The pool is horrible for kids. There is no hot tub. For the money, it was not worth it. The Sirata next door was a complete 180 degree pleasant experience instead.

Short get away from the cold

Posted Apr 12, 2014
We needed to get away from the cold of Wisconsin for a few days and this was a perfect fit for what we needed. Great views, close proximity to everything, great staff and service, clean, loved the love music nightly at the beach side bar and even better drinks.

Relaxing Trip

Posted Apr 12, 2014
Pros: Balcony view
Cons: Outdoor sitting areas to enjoy sunsets not in bar area, just a place to sit on a chair on the beach not having to get down into the sand to sit.
Location: We went to Clearwater to shop. Very busy area with teenyboppers everywhere, not my place to relax and enjoy a day of shopping for souvenirs.
Stayed here once before and came back for the beach. Hotel is nice and clean, but it is not a resort. We were looking for chairs to just sit and enjoy the out doors and the only option was an outdoor area of 2 chairs and sofa sitting off of the parking lot area looking at the parking lot....The outdoor bar & grill was nice right in the sand on the beach, but you had to order food to stay there. No gift shop, our first stay they had a small gift shop and now turned it into a vending machine room, nice selections if you need something in a hurry and don't want to leave the hotel, but the gift shop gave more of a vacation stay feel to pick up small boutique style souvenirs. Cabana rentals really need to be updated, had to make shift a support out of sand to hold cabana cover in place as it broke away from the lounge chair frame, it looked as they were all that way, same goes for the beach/pool towels as they looked faded and washed over several times... overall just needs some freshening up and brighter cheery colors to make it feel like your on vacation. The Sirata next door has more of the resort feel with lounge chairs everywhere, several nice outdoor sitting areas with tables to bring your own lunch or drink and relax watching the ocean with hammocks and outdoor beanbag toss. Would not call this a resort. Overall condition of Hotel is very clean with friendly staff with every room having a balcony, which was nice because we are smokers and allowed smoking on the balcony.

Idyllic

Posted Apr 10, 2014
Ultimate in ease and relaxation. Spinner's restaurant has fabulous view but average food and is overpriced. Small flaw relative to everything else.
