The sugary sands and dolphins of the islands -- on Florida's West Coast

Located on 13 acres of sugary sand on St. Pete Beach, the Sirata Beach Resort combines warm Gulf breezes with famous West Coast sunsets. Guests can stroll along the sandy beaches, swim in the pools and whirlpools or, if they are lucky, catch a glimpse of wild dolphins offshore. Adventurous types can try a variety of water sports in the Gulf of Mexico, including parasailing and Waverunner rentals. At the end of a long day in the Florida sun, a hammock is the best seat in the house.

Highlights
  • Three beachfront pools (heated when necessary), two whirlpools
  • Beachfront hammocks, poolside or beachside cabanas (fees apply)
  • Exclusive golf privileges less than five miles away at an 18-hole Championship golf course

Nice Stay.

The location is great, right on the beach. Our room was on the bay side of building 1 on the 7th floor. Great view and you can walk right around to the Gulf side for additional awesome views. The only downfall is that above the 7th floor are meeting rooms, so it can be loud if an event is going on. Other than that it was great. Clean, tidy, spacious, kind staff. There are multiple pools and hot tubs that are clean, towel service, bars and restaurants, and water sports and activities right outside on the beach. We went in sept. so it was likely off season, but I really think having live music in the evenings (maybe 8-11pm) would have made it more fun. We did end up going next door for that.

This was not my favorite place to stay because I like more of a laid back environment. The room had a full fridge which was nice to have in the room.

Getaway trip

The location of the hotel is great. It is right on the beach, but the accommodations were terrible. We selected a suite and the bed was hard and the shower had low pressure. Out dated room.

more motel than resort

The skilled photography of this "resort" makes the place look fabulous and new; be warned that this is not the case. It's not bad--in fact, from the exterior it looks like this is one of the nicer places on St. Pete Beach--but it is time-worn and weathered, and the photos are misleading. Our room, while adequately clean, had a very dated feel, with patterned carpet not shown in any photo and two chairs so stained and threadbare I only dared use them to store our luggage. The room was a nice size, but the bathroom was the tiniest I've ever seen in a hotel of any kind. Again though...adequate. We arrived late and were given a room in the low two-story building in front of the six-story focal point--a building I hadn't even noticed until we were assigned to it. The advantage is that it had a patio that faced the beach. The disadvantage is that--especially in the end unit that we were in--people were constantly walking past it, so there was virtually no privacy. If they weren't simply passing by to get to all of the other rooms, they were rinsing off their feet at the outdoor shower right in front of our patio. Since you can't lock and unlock the patio door anyway from the outside, I personally would request a room not on the ground level so there's at least the suggestion of personal space. There is an additional $8 daily parking fee. I don't know why. They have a huge lot but still somehow run out of spaces for guests, even though there is a security guard and a gate. Since there seems to be little monitoring of who comes and goes, I'm not exactly sure what we paid $8 a day for. The resort has many amenities, but we didn't have a chance to use any of them. Part of that was because our stay was short; the other reason was that the place was overrun with little kids. I mean, swarming with them. If you have little ones, they will have lots of company here, with playgrounds and pools that become pretty much exclusively theirs. But this is their off-season, and the place was packed. Not once was there room in the pool to take a quiet dip. Every meal at the on-site restaurant was accompanied by the whining of a hot and tired toddler. I'm not knocking kids--we have two, but we're well past this phase--but it was a real surprise to see so many at the resort when the photography makes the place look so peaceful and adult-oriented. The contrast was so pronounced that it almost smacked of false advertising.

Dining tip: Short drive from hotel

The staff recommended the restaurant Hurricanes; it's at the very top of the beach and worth the drive. Their specialty is grouper. I'm not a fish person but at someone's recommendation tried their grouper tacos--they were great. This end of the beach is clearly where the pricier lodging is, and both employees and guests are more respectful and courteous of each other. Earlier in the vacation we also tried a seafood restaurant within walking distance of the resort--Captain Billy's? The food was adequate, but the mood is entirely different. The hostess doodled on a pad and refused to acknowledge me standing in front of her, to the point that it became a contest to see who would break first; the restaurant is a massive warehouse of simple tables, rude customers, and tired waitstaff. If you can't sit outside, don't bother. We couldn't--they close d the outdoor seating early--but I can only hope it made everything else worth it.

Excellent location on the beach!

Wonderful location on the beach with three pools, a restaurant and two beach bar and grills. Within walking distance of good restaurants and a short drive to neighboring beaches and Tampa Bay. Everything you need for a good vacation. A toddler pool would be excellent since the lowest pool depth was 3 1/2 feet.

great family and couple get away

The amenities aren't included only the pool and access to the beach. You have to pay for parking, the chairs to sit on at the beach and whatever water sports you want to do. The food is good and average price. They charge you an extra 20% on your bill to have room service so its best to go to the restaurant or outside grill to eat if you want to save money. Loved the hotel, Great location and everything else was great They can probably do a better job keeping the place in the halls to the way to your room a little cleaner. The gift shop is super expensive So dont forget what you need to bring

Hotel needs updating

There was a staff member who was very rude to us in the parking lot as soon as we got there. The hotel needs a lot of updating. The price of the stay I would of expected a much nicer resort.
