“Literally, the last RESORT!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2014

It is my sincere pleasure to provide this review for my first stay so far at Sailport Resort. I accompanied a delegation of 18 military officers for a very important bi-lateral conference at USCENTCOM. The dates of our stay was 11-17 May during a time when every other hotel in Tampa was sold out due to other conventions in town. The only place that could accommodate all of us in one location was the Sailport Resort. This foreign delegation is used to staying at 5-star hotels that spare no expense. At first, the delegation was going to cancel the visit because all the 5-star hotels were all sold out. However, I convinced them to give it a try. Frankly, nothing can beat the sheer beauty of the location with water on most sides of the resort. You did not have anything to do with that. However, the staff was absolutely astounding in every regard. One employee went out of his way to set up a dinner event hosted by the foreign delegation. He worked diligently to ensure this event was a resounding success. His tenacity was incredible. Further, the professional and courteous behavior of the entire staff directly impacted the overall success of the conference. Without a doubt, the Sailport impressed me! I will stay here the next time I visit Tampa!

Room Tip: Request a beach view room on the third or fourth floor. Beauty at its best!

We were in Tampa for 30 days while my husband had surgery. The room was clean and comfortable. We saw beautiful views throughout the property. The full kitchen made it easy for me to stay in and take care of my husband as he recovered. Even the drivers for the shuttle were friendly and treated us like family. I have never experienced such concern and care from a hotel. Where else would a hotel employee call to check on you at the hospital? The staff would call and come by regularly to check on us. It was wonderful to come "home" and find get well cards and ice cream in the freezer after a long day of surgery and appointments. We will miss Jerry, Mr. Harry, Mike and Gregg (drivers) and everyone else who helped make our stay so wonderful. The Sailport is the only place we will stay when we return next summer.

Very nice suite with room. The area was very nice, really liked the location. We went to Busch gardens and Clearwater beach- this place happens to set right between the two. Only drawback was the rooms were not very sound proof to the next or above room or outside. We were near an elevator that have a lot of traffic and that could get noisy. Also the above room had small kids that liked to run the length of the room- again very noisy. Getting out to a restaurant was a bit of a drag, but I knew that going in. Not a bad price for the room, I would likely stay there again if I where in Tampa.

Room Tip: Ask for a 4th floor room not near an elevator.

I understand that Palmetto Bugs are a big problem in florida but I didn't expect them to be in my room. After returning from dinner to the Sailport we switched on the light and they scattered all over the place. I called the front desk quickly because my daughter wouldn't get off of the bed. They responded with spray but I couldn't sleep the entire night. The hotel itself is very nice, although the office on the 2nd floor seemed to be in an odd location. I didn't even know where to check in. They can call them whatever they want in Florida but where I come from they are called cockroaches. YUCK

Our first visit - had a newly updated unit which was spotless. Other than the x-way rebuilding traffic snarls which can't be helped, had a wonderful time exploring the art museum scene in both Tampa and St. Pete. Staff accommodated our request for a "quiet spot" up on the 4th floor so of course the view was great! Close to good casual or upscale dining.

Room Tip: If you like to sit outside and read on your balcony, let staff know am or pm so they can give you a...

The room was beautiful and clean. Had a view of the bay. Great amenities. Fire pit at night, cute fishing dock, volleyball court, pool. All of the staff we encountered were helpful and very friendly. I would definitely stay here again in the future. Only drawback was there was not beach access, however, there is less than a half mile away. It is in close proximity to shopping, beaches, and great food. We loved it!

We had planned this trip to Florida for almost a year, to attend my daughter's wedding.She had recommended this hotel as her & her fiancé had stayed there many times, so we were really looking forward to staying here, and it did not disappoint! They gave us their largest 2 bdrm 2 bathroom suite ( we had my elderly father with us) the suite was quite large & so lovely, nice 40 to 50 inch flatscreens in the living room & both bdrms.The beds were large & comfy, the kitchen was clean & well stocked...and the view from the balcony-beautiful! Our balcony over-looked the tip of the bay, we saw dolphins & whales swimming almost right below us! The sunsets were so beautiful every night. The staff was so nice and very accomodating, they even had my dad's oxygen tanks waiting for him in his bdrm when we arrived (we had a local oxygen company deliver them to the hotel a couple of days before we left home) after a 12 hour drive from KY. The Rusty Pelican restaurant is within walking distance, and the hotel provides a shuttle bus to several other restaurants & bars. We will definitely stay here again.
