Sandpearl Resort has the unique distinction of having both a Four Diamond Award from AAA and Florida’s first Silver LEED certification. For guests, this means unparalleled service alongside forward-thinking green initiatives and a variety of activities built for ultimate relaxation time – whether it’s lounging in a private poolside cabana, kayaking alongside dolphins, or indulging in a spa treatment.
STAY: Room to Roam, Room to Relax
The resort’s 253 guest rooms and suites have a breezy, beachy vibe. Couples can sink into comfortable furnishings of the guest rooms, while the one- and two-bedroom suites are ideal for families, groups, or those on more extended vacations.
EAT: Award-Winning Cuisine for Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner
Caretta on the Gulf, the Sandpearl’s fine dining restaurant, is Clearwater’s only AAA Four-Diamond restaurant. Dine inside for a more formal experience or outside where jackets aren’t required. Just steps from the sand and zero-entry pool, Tate Island Grille offers guests a more casual option. Resort staff will even deliver your plate to your beach chair or pool lounger.
PLAY: Far, Far Beyond the Average Beach Activities
The enrichment programs at Sandpearl very nearly steal the show. Take a behind-the-scenes tour of the Clearwater Marine Aquarium, or stargaze with an expert Museum of Science and Industry astronomer. Dolphin encounters, a chef’s cooking demo, or art lessons with the resort’s own Artist in Residence round out the offerings. Parents can sign the kids up for Camp Ridley, then spend their day planted in the sand or on a couples’ adventure.
SAVE TIME FOR
The Sea Life Safari Eco-Tour is the ultimate hands-on experience. Jump aboard for a two-hour trip up the Intracoastal Waterway, where you’ll see dolphins, sea birds, and other marine life. Observe research in action as the guides perform a net pull and pass around sea creatures before releasing them back into the bay. This is a must for families with kids of all ages.
