Online it says the property is newly renovated but it’s still outdated. They do not clean your room or provide clean towels unless you ask for it. If it’s raining, both outdoor bars at the resort will be closed. The pool is tiny with only about 10 chairs. Request a room on 8th or 9th floor. We were on the 2nd floor and our room view was the trash and resort next door. Restaurant called Spinners at the top is cool but you have to make the reservation 3-4 months in advance. Not worth the price!!

Shawn and the staff were great and made sure our stay was 5stars

Overall, we loved our stay at Bellwether. They were doing renovations, so no gym was available. Otherwise, the staff at Bongos and the cafe in the lobby were fantastic, friendly people, and very helpful in finding different spots. The beach access was excellent and so nice to do a morning beach walk.

Loved the location, and beach access, but our view was horrible. My room looked out to a brick wall. No vending machines on the property and was told there was an ice machine on our floor. There wasn't one. Parking are was very limited and wasn't informed of the parking garage until we were leaving. I will stay again, but will request 3rd floor or higher.

staff were all very friendly and accommodating.

Where do I start? There was no sign on the street at the front of the parking lot. Had to look for the building. It was the second day of the soft open on our check in. When we booked our stay there was nothing that said it was under construction. 1 out of 2 elevators working and it smelled horrible. Told us multiple "beds", 1 bed and a pull out. Pool was closed because of glass and debris from construction. No restaurant and no breakfast. pictures in website totally misleading. Want full refund!

Kelly, What a pleasure to have you join us for some time on the beach. Sharing your concerns and experience is truly appreciated, as we pride ourselves in providing a fantastic guest experience. Spinners is a favorite among many of our guests, we have several other options on property that we would love to welcome you to, Bongos, our beach side grill, has a delicious menu and live music daily. I know a little rain is disappointing during a beach vacation, luckily our location in the heart of St. Pete's allows for you to explore many of our popular nearby attractions. I hope to welcome you back to our beach paradise in the future to show you all we have to offer!
