Clearwater Gulf View hotel

So we will be doing 3 days in Clearwater at the start of our next holiday. Looking for recommendations for a family friendly hotel with a view of the gulf. Have looked at Opal Sands but heard it was a bit stuffy, Hampton Inn and Suites looks nice but at the quieter end of the beach. Would also consider St Petes if there is plenty to do there? We will have a car so donít mind travelling to Clearwater in the day but does St Petes have a good selection of restaurants for evening meals?

Thank you. Have had a read - sandpearl was on my radar and your trip report looks lovely.

We have stayed at the Hyatt in a gulf front suite but we booked the Sandpearl for this year. We should be on the plane this Thursday

Have you decided yet? We are on the search too. The Hyatt is coming in too expensive this time. We have always stayed in a suite and they are wanting over £2k for 2 nights which is crazy

No. Narrowed it down to Sandpearl or Opal Sands but we need a gulf facing room (well I want one) so I think it will come down to price.

Yes and the Hampton. The Hampton looks good value ( free breakfast included) but I would like a bit of luxury for a few nights.

We stayed at the Hilton and although the location was fantastic I don't feel I can recommend it. The beach was beautiful and the pool lovely but the room wasnt up to standard.

We love a gulf view too. The rooms just aren't falling right for us at the moment though.

We need a suite with twin beds for me and Soph, my Husband sleeps in the lounge on the sofa as he is awake a long time before us and he likes to sit on the balcony with a coffee. Most suites are kings and my daughter kicks so I'm not sharing with her

We have stayed in 2 bed suites at the Hyatt before but the prices have gone mad!
