Beachfront resort offers fine dining and a full roster of activities
Gorgeous Gulf views, supersoft sands and elegant dining make the Sandpearl Resort experience one to remember. Guests unwind at The Spa at Sandpearl, or keep themselves moving with sand volleyball or parasailing. Spend an afternoon at the lagoon-style pool, where a calming waterfall and shady cabana might be all it takes to keep some guests entertained. Camp Ridley is specially designed for kids, but grown-ups can take part in resort activities, too -- astronomy, art and cooking are all part of the Sandpearl Resort experience.
Highlights

  • Steps from the beach
  • Massage and body treatments at The Spa at Sandpearl
  • Camp Ridley for guests who are 5 to 11 years old
  • Astronomy Night co-sponsored by Tampa's Museum of Science and Industry

All feature flat-panel TVs, clock radios with MP3 docking stations, Wi-Fi, a mini bar and refrigerator.
Features

Whether guests want to do nothing or keep moving from dawn to dusk, they find what they're looking for at the Sandpearl Resort. A lagoon-style pool is surrounded by towering palm trees and plenty of lounges perfect for dozing the day away. For more privacy, slip under a poolside cabana.

 

Sandpearl Resort adventure-seekers find wave runners, parasailing and volleyball right on the beach. Just two blocks from the resort, the Clearwater Marina sets guests up with sunset sailing, dinner cruises, dolphin excursions and deep sea fishing.

Best place to be on the beach!

I live in Tampa and love weekend get-aways. I've been to The Don Cesar, The Vinoy and other great hotels but the Sandpearl is now my absoulute favorite. Such great staff, the best location, and the prices for everything were really reasonable! We were greeted as soon as we walked in the door and the complimentary champagne as you check in was "top notch". I hope to return again within the next month!

Great Stay!

My husband and I stayed at the Sandpearl for a few days after our wedding. Hotel is beautiful on one of Florida's best beaches. You can walk to some of the best casual dining restaurants in the area (we didn't move our car out of valet for 4 days...) and housekeeping always managed to slip in while we were out of the room. Staff was courteous and pleasant. We will definitely be back!

Check out the Clear Sky Cafe, Frenchy's Rockaway, the Brown Boxer, The Palm Pavillion, and Tate's Island Way Grill. All are within very short walking distance of the hotel and are great!

Sunset at The Sand Pearl near Pier 60

The pool is not your ordinary rectangular pool. There is a gradual slope for the little ones and plenty of shade and sun. The pool service is excellent and it is nice to have an outdoor bar/restauant right next to it on the beach. Watching the sunset while roasting marshmellows at the fire pit and melting them on choclate with graham crackers was a treat. It was nice to have the samore kits available for purchase.

Everything a traveller could want

We were greeted at the entrance by friendly valets and right inside the front door by an aproned attendant offering a mimosa drink or wine. Very courteous desk check in receptionist greeted us and explained the layout. Gorgeous lobby with massive sand sculpture. Immaculately clean gulf view room with a balcony. Even the remote control for the tv had been sanitized. Room service breakfast order was tasty and prompt. I couldn't believe the reasonable cost for this luxury.
