This Mediterranean style resort overlooks the Gulf of Mexico and one of Florida's most beautiful beaches. The hotel boasts casual dining, water sports, tennis and a fabulous fitness center.
This is one of only two true resorts in Clearwater Beach, and guests cherish its relaxed ambiance and isolated location. The hotel stands apart from the commercial strip across the bridge, yet is only five minutes away from it so guests have easy access to all the local activities.
The attractive, 8-story property has contemporary styling and is regularly renovated to keep a fresh face on its appealing combination of tropical landscaping, resort facilities, gulf vistas, and overall tropical ambiance. The private talcum-powder sand beach is a big draw.
The spacious lobby with fashionable pilasters, marble floors, and dome lighting has been updated with new and comfortable island appointments. The adjoining lounge has a contemporary look, a big-screen TV, and evening entertainment Tuesday through Saturday, while the top-floor lounge thrills guests with beautiful water views.
The restaurant is a tried and true local fixture, and its waitstaff is extremely polite. The menu in the main grill favors fresh seafood and seasonal produce, and Sunday brunches and daily buffets deserve their popularity. A secondary grill dishes up casual fare on the pool terrace where a small pool, party-size whirlpool, and wading pool are surrounded by lawns, flowering plants, palms, and umbrellas for plenty of shade.
The rooftop fitness center has a full-time staff, good equipment, massage services, and fantastic views. Three lighted, waterfront tennis courts, lawn games, a wide beach, and sailing ensure fun, and a counselor keeps children occupied. Shops and a 24-hour delicatessen are in the miniature arcade, and there is meeting space for up to 1,000 people.
Green and white striped hallways lead to recently remodeled guest rooms. All have green pile carpeting, bleached woods, rattan armchairs and ottomans, new lamps, TVs, coffeemakers, safes, mirrored closets opposite black marble vanities, baths with hair dryers, and well-furnished balconies with views of the gulf, bay, and Clearwater Beach's low-rise neon skyline.
A smart and responsive management team keeps this gulfside beauty sailing smoothly!
