“Great hidden place..”
Reviewed 27 December 2011

The staff was awesome, the rooms were plenty big enough for our family of 5.. Super comfortable bed, heated pool and hot tub were great. Centrally located for all the beachside activities. loved watching the pirate ship come right by us while we were in the pool.

My husband and I originally stayed at the Sea Captain's Resort last year as we wanted a hotel that was in the "center" of it all on Clearwater Beach but also wanted to have a boat slip as we thought we may rent a boat for a few days. It turned out that it was the best decison we could have made. We LOVE it there. We have stayed 4 times in less than a year. We live in Maine so we travel to Florida to escape the cold and the responsibilities of life, for a few short days.

The rooms are immaculate, the staff is incredibly friendly, the pool is spotless and the bars and restaturants are within walking distance.

During our last stay, I had forgotten my toothbrush - When I stopped at the front desk late that night and asked Darlene if they had a spare, she mentioned that they didn't carry those as a rule, yet she had just returned from the dentist and had a spare at her home. She actually went home and brought me back a toothbrush (in the package) at 11:00 at night. Who does that? They do!

Our last visit to the Sea Captain was the weekend of the 17th of November. We had a couple of friends going with us so they decided to stay at the same place that we were. When they called to make reservations, Darlene asked if they would like for her to arrange a taxi to pick them up at the Airport? How accomodating!

We fell in love with the Sea Captain Resort and highly recommend it. We will stay there every chance that we can and know that you will fall in love with with it, as we did.

My husband and I stayed for 2 nights this past weekend. I found the Sea Captain online and was pleasantly suprised! A lot of times places don`t look quite the same in person. I cannot say enough about the cleanliness of the room and the well kept grounds. Unfortunatly my husband started feeling sick on the way there. We decided to make the best of it since we already had reservations. We were disappointed we didnt get to see and do all we had planned, but still had a good time. The view from our window was amazing!We had room 23 and we could sit on the bed and watch the boats go by. We did get to walk on the beach and sit by the water right in front of our room.It was a very relaxing weekend. The construction next door was not a problem at all. We will be back as soon as we can, are already checking the dates for January. It seems like a family friendly atmosphere for sure. Our grown kids want to come back with us!

Room Tip: We loved the view of the water on the 2nd floor.

2011 was our 10th (at least) year staying at the Sea Captain. Love the friendliness/homy feeling you get when you arrive and stay. Would the Hilton, Sandpearl or new hotel houskeeping staff greet/hug you on a return visit? I think not. Can't wait for 2012.

Room Tip: All rooms are great. Just depends on what you want.

On October 15, we stayed for one night at the Sea Captain Resort. It was my birthday and they even had a big Happy Birthday banner hung in the room. That was a very nice surprise:) We were in clearwater to visit the Clearwater Aquarium & Marine Park where Winter the star of the movie Dolphin Tale lives. The Sea Captain resort was GREAT! The resort was built in the 50's, so very well maintained. The rooms were decorated Florida style...we loved it! Tom and Darlene were so very friendly & accomodating as they treated us like old friends. The resort is right on the water and there is a great view of the marina. It was so close to the the aquarium. Darlene told us of a great place to eat and listen to live music. We will definitely stay at this resort again. Between the visit to the aquarium which was wonderful and the Sea Captain it made for a wonderful birthday weekend. Thanks so much Sea Captain Resort. Check it out..you will enjoy it!

Room Tip: We stayed in Room #26...downstairs on the end. :)

We have stayed at the Sea Captain 2 times a year, for several years. The friendliness of the cleaning gals and all the staff is A+. We love the size of the Hotel and the convenience of everything being walking distance. We would not even think of staying anywhere else. We have a lot of friends we have met over the years at the Sea Captain from all over the world, and look forward to seeing them from year to year. It is like coming home when we arrive. The staff is always asking you if you need anything and is always there to answer questions or help you in anyway. Pepe is the greatest and most helpful grounds person around. He always has a big smile on his face and will help you with anything you need too. We look forward to the next time we go home to our vacation spot.

Room Tip: Every room is nice.

We stayed for three nights overlooking the bay in Clearwater. Darlene was most welcoming and her recommendations for supper (within walking distance) were perfect. The setting for the hotel is great. A new building behind the hotel is under construction but this did not diminish our enjoyment of the Sea Captain. The pool was meticulously maintained by Pepe. Our last night, the sunset over the ocean was the most amazing sunset I have seen and we returned to the hotel to be treated by the fireworks going off over the bay from the Jazz Festival. The Sea Captain has a lovely retro 1950s feel to it, but the facility is well maintained and we were pleased with the continental breakfast served on weekends. Our stay at the Sea Captain was a wonderful way to end our stay on the Gulf Coast.

Room Tip: Room 22 was closest to the harbour and had great views of the boats coming and going.
