Loved It

My wife and I stayed at Sailport two time prior to this stay and were leary about going back because of all the reviews I read. Once we got there we were mad that we did not stay there during every trip to Florida; which is every year. I assure you we will be staying at Sailport every time we return to Florida. The views are priceless. Staying on the Bay is unmatached. We fell in love again being in such a romantic location. Thank you we had a great time for a good price. We are going to bring our grand kids next year.

Would go back

Nice room, kitchen, living area, bedroom. Good Bay view. Outside a small beach, outside exercise machines, and a BBQ. Free WiFi. My only negative is it is not in walking distance of a restaurant or bar, or beach activities.

Concert Stop Over

We traveled to Tampa to see Zach Brown and wanted to stay some place by the water. The property is right on the Bay. The accommodations were very nice! I believe the location is a time share. Since we only staying for one night i believe they put us in a room with a view of the canal. I would have given them a better score if we would have had a better view.

Weekend away for me and my Daughter

We had a great stay at Sailport. Was a real nice that you get 2 bedroom suite with full kitchen for the price of a hotel room. Staff was nice and the view of the bay was great with a beautiful sunset at night.

Would recommend to friends

Nothing extravagant, but a great value. Room was clean enough, but a little dated. Loved the beach set-up and pool. Pull out couch was terrible for sleep. Loved the convenience of the kitchen. Housekeeping was not really on the ball. I had to call at 5pm on our scheduled day after confirming in person already in the morning, that my room was supposed to be cleaned. Left a tip for housekeeping to leave extra towels, they did, but then didn't re-supply any fresh washcloths, or hand towels, which should always be a given. Would stay again, and just request everything at the front desk immediately upon checking in. Very quiet and peaceful, and a great location.
