“Paradise within reach”
Reviewed 12 January 2014

The Sandpearl offers very nice updated accommodations on the beach. The pool was an amazing getaway from everyday life. The staff was wonderful. The sand on the private beach is comparable to powder. If I didn't know any better, I would think I was in the Florida Keys.

Green Features: I was thrilled to know the Sandpearl uses environmentally friendly products. My children have allergies and had zero issues at the Sandpearl.

First of all Clearwater Beach is one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. The hotel has Ana amazing wade in pool with views of the ocean. The private beach area is incredible. This resort is perfect for families. They loan swim toys, beach toys, DVDs and movies and give you a glass of champagne upon check in. Thee are s'more fireside which is on the beach. We love it here.

We stayed here for NYE and enjoyed a FANTASTIC meal at the restaurant downstairs. 4 diamonds and well deserved! The service from Natalie was amazing. We even got two glasses of a fancy 2004 Veuve Cliquot for FREE with dessert. After dinner we strolled down a candlelit path to the open beach where the staff had set up a number of campfires with beach chairs, blankets and champagne for the fireworks show. Everything was prepared and looked after and there was staff crawling around all over the place making sure everything was perfect. It was!! The room was great, balcony sized for two, amenities and bath were elegant and cozy. Pricey for Florida and worth every penny.

We very much enjoyed our stay at the Sandpearl Resort. The weather was on the cold and rainy side, but we still had a lot of fun. The entire trip exceeded our expectations. From champagne at check-in to a family photo taken by valet as we left, we had a really great time on Clearwater beach, in spite of the weather. Our twin boys (age 7) loved the pool and the beach regardless of the temperature. They spent hours in both (Mom and Dad appreciated the two hot tubs). Clearwater beach is truly incredible, literally miles of pure white sand and mellow surf. Our room on the third floor had no view to speak of, but the 12' ceilings made the room feel especially grand. We kept busy and didn't spend much time in the room, so the lack of view had little effect. If you enjoy sitting on your balcony, paying up for an Gulf Front view would be well worth the cost. The resort itself is impeccably maintained and the staff wonderful across the board. We enjoyed the restaurants and I also had a very good massage at the spa. We had not been to the gulf coast of Florida before and we will definitely return and most certainly will stay at the Sandpearl again.

In terms of activities we thought the Clearwater aquarium a very fun 1/2 day, the Big Cat Rescue tour (note kids must be 10+ except Sat and Sun at 9am), and drove down to the Dali museum in St. Petersburg which was fantastic. The museum even had an audio tour for children which was told from the perspective of Dali's famous mustache.

Room Tip: A third floor room with a gulf view would be spectacular. You would get the 12' ceilings (third...

Green Features: It's always nice to know a hotel is making an effort to minimize its environmental impact. Perhaps the best tribute to the Sandpearl is that you really don't notice and I mean that as the highest of compliments.

We've been to the Sandpearl several times now, and every time is a perfect, polished experience. The staff is wonderful, very professional and well-trained, they are on top of everything. Both the property and beach are very clean (LOVE the powdery sand of Clearwater Beach). Our kids love: the activities desk and the pool toys and games they have available, finding shells by the shore, building sandcastles, swimming in the perfect temperature pool, lunch by the pool, the self-playing piano in the lobby, the special New Years Eve hour for the kids in the ballroom with all sorts of fun activities. My husband and I love: the good food, poolside drinks and food service, the pool, the sand, the staff that tends to our needs quickly and with a happy disposition, the cleanliness, the spa, the gym, the hot tub, the comfy beds, the valet, the breakfast buffet, the beautiful property. I splurged and tried the spa for the first time, again top notch facility, options, and service. If only the Sandpearl could control the weather, it would be even more perfect. The sand sculptures on the property were also a nice touch. See also my previous review of the Sandpearl from 2012.

Room Tip: We had a room overlooking the hotel entrance and street, and it was perfectly fine, no noise issues...

The resort is so clean and perfect. The beach is breathtaking! Our only complaint is that we didn't plan to stay longer. We will be back FOR SURE! Thank you Sandpearl for making our New Year's Eve experience amazing!
