Pink Shell Beach Resort, Fort Myers or Sandpearl, Clearwater

Would anyone recommend one over the other? We can't decide between which resort or area? Any thoughts?

Sandpearl is a really nice resort. Right on the beach, large pool, ideal location.

Hope this helps!

We would definitely recommend the Sandpearl in Clearwater. We found Pink Shell to be overpriced, overcrowded, too many issues with rooms, renovations, noise, traffic & parking, just our opinion though.

Thank you for your replies. We are doing Disney the last week of May and beach first week of June. What is the weather usually like? Hopefully not too hot as we have too children?

Weather is very nice usually. The Summer rains have normally not started, although a shower is possible, but not as often as later in June, and into the Summer.

It will be warm, but again, not as humid and stifling hot as later in the Summer.

I have stayed at the Sandpearl and it's out of this world the best hotel we have ever stayed at. The other hotel you mentioned called the Pink shell even though i haven't stayed there looking at the photos on trip advisor it looks rather basic compared to the Sandpearl though the both are right on the beach. As for Clearwater beach the area is walkable with many great restaurants, a great pier and great transport to the area's attractions.

You would probably get some pretty different responses had you posted this in the Ft. Myers Beach forum. :) I haven't been to Sandpearl, but Pink Shell is very kid-friendly. Their pool is a big hit with the kids and it seems like there are always a lot of families there. Plus they have a "Kidds Kampp", where you can drop off the kids and enjoy a few hours on your own.

I think Sandpearl also has a camp.
