Great resort for a family with kids although the rooms are a little on the older side All the people are very friendly and professional You’ve got tennis, golf, and several small pools with an overall relaxing environment

There’s a driving range next to the main clubhouse by the South course We played South, Island and Copperhead courses – and the club services team moves your equipment around to each course ahead of time Super efficient!

Ursula Cunningham

This place was spectacular!!! I didn’t get to enjoy the 6 pools, nor golfing but we will be going back in October The room was very nice, it was like home away from home We had a kitchen, living area, nice room and the bathroom was very nice as well

Going back to the kitchen, it had all the appliances and dishware needed to cook I thank God for my husband, for picking out a wonderful place for the second part of our vacation! ❤️❤️❤️

I loved the condo I stayed in Great WI-FI, beautiful property As an Airbnb renter, I feel like there is no respect shown to visitors who spend thousands over their stay

I felt like a prisoner in my very expensive rental Innisbrook would benefit from issuing a pool pass for guests, especially those who spend over $100 at a restaurant built right next to the pool Perhaps a lower membership package, temporary, allows pool(s) or pool Honestly you are accosted if you go in the pool as a renter and are forced to exit It is scary I spent 8 days inside taking occasional walks and ordering in I came to watch golf and go in the pool, considering there are several Are no pools for guests? ugh Sorry I feel like I wasted money that could have been avoided had management addressed the concerns of several guests who posted prior I am not spending thousands of dollars to take a dip It is ludicrous

We had a nice room with a beautiful view of the Bay The rooms were clean and had firm beds (if you like that), the location was great, and it’s just across the street from the beach There are plenty of restaurants, bars and shops you can walk to only minutes away

There’s even a restaurant upstairs which I didn’t get to take advantage of, but I heard it was great Also, the front desk staff were friendlyThings I didn’t like:It took a while for us to get into the parking garage, because of the amount of traffic there was the afternoon that we arrived Once we got to hotel, the parking was a breeze Their check-in lobby was a little small In order to get to the lobby you need to take the elevators a few floors up from the ground floor The hallway carpet on the way to our room was a little warped It might be due for a replacement Other than the above mentioned, everything was greatI would recommend staying here, at least 2 nights

Paul Jordan

So we just checked in a couple hours ago and will be here until Tuesday so I will update this review but… the young woman who checked us in was awesome

Help us with extra towels, explained the services, and was a great first impression The room is amazing Corner room with a big balcony looking right at Pier 60, and three side windows facing the beach also Very big room, very clean and bathroom/shower very clean One drawback so far is water pressure but good hot water Went up to the rooftop bar and had a Gin and Tonic and it was very lively with great view of the beach I will update but for now this is looking good

Chris Hajek

Hotel is in a fantastic location! Just across the street from the beach Staff at check-in was extremely helpful in fixing an issue with the booking site we used Warm breakfast was surprisingly good

Room is a little out dated but not enough to distract from the other great qualities of this hotel We even were able to watch the pier fireworks from our bedroom window

I could write a full paper on how much I adore this quaint place we (family of 7) called home for 4 day We stayed in the bigger suit room 105 and it had 2 bedrooms: one with 2 queen beds and the other room had a king sized bed There are 2 couch sleepers down stairs, which this place could easily accommodate 10 people

There are 3 porches One one the water, one balcony upstairs overlooking the water and lower porch, and a front porch that has a view if the pool, of you have little that need to be watched We can via train and didn’t bring beach items like chairs, umbrellas, ect They have a selection of chairs, umbrellas, wagons, toys, at a first come first served basis and best of all, it’s free Terrie (I believe her name was) is a doll She took suck good care of us Our train didn’t leave until 5:20pm, check out was 10am She let us use the pool hang out until we left for the train The best part of this gem is the Jolley trolly stop is right in front of the place You pay $5 a day and it makes stops allllll over Clearwater and will take you practically every where, aquarium pier 60 and all You can avoid the crowds but still get to the “main strip” with into a 10 min walk (it’s quite the stroll to do wvery day with 4 kids under 10) or hop on trolley ride Kids 8 and under are free to ride!!! Sonwe paid $20 to ride infinitely all day So worth the investment The convenience of the trolly and being away from the crowds makes this hidden gem a perfect vacation spot for families especially those with kids I highly recommend this place and i am kind of relictant to leave a review because I selfishly want it to remain hidden The home like feel draws you in It is very clean and they have all the amenities you need with a full kitchen, laundry, and 3 bathroomsyou read that right, THREE FULL BATHROOMS! My kids and mother in law could all take showers at one time and there was no waiting for eachother to get out We were able to wash our clothes before leaving and that was nice not to have to worry about laundry when we got home Over all the place exceedes my expectation I rarely leave reviews and this place deserved every second of my time taken to write this

This property is a vacation rental That being said if you’ve never used a vacation rental before know that you are started with the basic paper towels, toilet paper but then you need to go shopping! I recommend insta cart as you may not even have a bottle of water in hand and we chose Publix as they were quick delivery, and good selection online The staff here is very helpful with everything from checking in, shopping, site seeing, things to do, etc

This property is ONLY a 3 block walk to the beautiful clearwater beach ! ENJOY

This hotel was very clean and inviting The rooms were spotless and the common grounds were clean and welcoming The breakfast offered plenty of options for a complimentary breakfast and the staff was very nice

The front desk staff was willing to answer questions and always smiling and the breakfast staff was also very welcoming and had great attitudes and made kind conversationThe hotel was in a great location to easily access downtown Dunedin and we made it to Clearwater in 20-30 minutes I would definitely recommend this hotel if you would like a clean, friendly and affordable place to stay in the area

We had reservations for 3 days! At first, we were in a room with no amenities! The office did move us into a better room, with all the amenities! That was great! We did bring cold food and needed the mini fridge and microwave was also needed! Thank you for moving us to a better room!They do have a continental breakfast!Not bad!We had a great time at the pool and it is close to everything!

Sharon Caron

Accidentally booked the wrong room so my mistake, however, this hotel is perfectly located! Our room was certainly not fancy, but we knew that going in Breakfast bar has minimal options, especially for someone with gluten allergies Coffee and fruit was great

Rhonda at the front desk was the most friendly person we’ve met She is very personable and was able to answer all our questions We would definitely stay here again

Tyler Bryan

DO NOT STAY HERE !!! It’s a big disappointment We’ve stayed here several times in the past, but it has clearly been neglected to the point of… It’s nasty inside

We were missing the dining table and chairs, as shown on website The shower hot water was just warm at best Couch, chair had stains on it Large gaps in the wood in bathroom Ceiling tiles loose I turn into fire inspector for emergency fire boxes with no doors or extinguisherI have pictures to prove my statement Even the workers were showing concern about this buildingDO NOT STAY HERE !!

Remember to use ʜoᴛᴇʟʙᴏʟʟʏᴄᴏm when booking any room This site will compare thousands of booking websites and usually will have rooms much cheaper than others! Thank me later on! This resort is one of my favorites in the area

I have been coming here for years If you stay for a few days you won’t be let downStill features one of the most elegant Sunday brunches in the area, although there are no real safety precautions which was a bit disappointing Food is fresh and well -prepared with a wide assortment of breakfast and lunch/dinner fare The buffet includes a free mimosa, unlimited coffee, hot or iced tea and soft drinks

Marcus Miller

As a venue for a wedding, it was a great choice Absolutely incredible dinner service, bar was great, and lighting was well managedFor the hotel/spa, sub-par

Pool is nice, but crowded Limited chairs and towels Charges for spa were supposed to be waived for wedding, but wouldn’t remove a small $32 charge because it was booked through a third party Not a big deal, but more of the principal of the matter Room service was running behind for a morning breakfast (scheduled) 21% gratuity is automatic and the price on the menu didn’t match the price on the bill Very unfortunate considering a gratuity is linked to serviceThe entire hotel needs a coat of paint and a pressure wash outside Multiple parts of the hotel either smelled of mildew or bleach The room was clean and well stocked, but the towels were rough The furniture could definitely use an upgradeRecommendation for management/owners, whoever is the hospitality manager for the venue/wedding operations should be put in charge of all the others operations as well Perhaps they would bring the service level up and we’d stay again

Chris Camerlengo

Went for spring break with my son to catch Yankee spring training A relative set us up with a 2 night stay From check in to check out was nice place

Could use better water pressure and room updates But beds were comfortable Food at hotel was solid And the surrounding areas have places to eat Was a too short trip He will return with friends next year

Overall our favorite part was the courtyard and pool It was very beautiful! The check-in employee was politeMy issues:When we showed up early from the flight at 11:30 we were told we had to wait until 3:30 to check in or we were going to be charged

I’ve never been charged for early check in at other hotels- they always accommodateWe stayed 4 nights and only had one set of towels provided No one came to clean/touch up or take trash or replace towels or sheets or anything the whole week we were there I had to go ask for more towelsThe fridge was really loud when running to the point we turned it off so that we could sleepThe lock on the door did not work because the metal piece of the lock was damaged so we had to use other safety precautionsThe bathroom windows on main floor (which is where we stayed ) are sketchy because someone could have looked right in and saw everything There are no covers Oh and the shower- we had to run the water for about 10-15 min for it to be warm/hot*Not the hotels fault but they should have at least notify customers that there was major construction going on that was disturbing

William Sailers

Had a 2 night stay to do some scuba diving with Tanks-A-Lot

location was perfectless than 15 miles from the boat dock The room was clean and newly refurbished The property had a Caribbean paint theme and was very clean and family friendly An awesome Mexican restaurant was within a short walk No complaints Mike is an excellent host/property manager

Sara Issa

Loved my stay here!! Quiet area, clean rooms, very cute courtyard and a really nice outdoor pool! My friend and I also accidentally had locked out key in the room and we didn’t arrive back to our room until 2am and Mike (manager? owner?) was so sweet and helped us day and night! Highly recommend this place if you need a nice place to stay!

Opal Sands Resort is a nice hotel with a great view Most of the staff is friendly and willing to do whatever they can to please, but I felt the front desk employee who checked us in didn’t provide a warm welcome Each day we walked by the front desk would ignore us unless we directly approached them

Many avoided eye contact which I felt was odd? A smile goes a long way I do wish there was an adult only pool here as one day the pool was shut down twice for an hour within a few hours because of a kid having an accident in the pool They could also be better about keeping non-guests out of the pool area but I’m sure that’s a challenge they face daily I like that they have cold bottled water available but the snacks and daily fresh cookies (that weren’t there) are a let down for such an expensive hotel Drinks are on the more expensive side but poolside service is good Food at the hotel is okay Room was nice and quiet, beautiful views, comfy beds There is definitely room for improvement here with guest experience, but because of the view and location I would probably return

Nell W

This resort is beautiful! The beds were comfortable and the pillows were so fluffy! The room was beautifully decorated and the view was breathtaking! We ordered room service and it was wonderful! The staff was so cheerful and friendly! The food was always delicious! The hotel is walking distance to so many fun things and wonderful food! Highly recommend!

I highly recommend opal sands if you’re looking to stay in west Florida! Unlimited complimentary water bottles plus free muffins and fresh fruit in the morning and free cookies in the afternoon! the staff was very helpful the whole time Levi on security was so nice to us He made us feel very at home there

Every room at this resort has a beautiful view of the gulf and the beach too which is great!Had a great stay here and would recommend to anybody coming to the area!

I had my wedding at the Hilton on the beach last month The staff was nice and easy to work with when setting up the venue and date The overall stay and experience wasn’t what we had expected with the price we paid

The rooms were mediocre, beds weren’t too comfortable, not any COVID protocols in place Many of guest had similar complaints about the rooms During the morning of the wedding, they had provided us with bridal and groom room however the coffee they were going to provide was brought after we were all ready and left for the wedding Regarding valet there were some issues as they tried to make our guest pay the full price but luckily our wedding planner was able to speak to the staff and get it sorted The day of the wedding the service was okay with the servers as they didn’t seem too friendly or nice towards the guest as our guest told me and my family after the event For the price we paid for the venue it wasn’t as special as I had expected The outdoor venue was great- right on the beach and they had the chairs set up on time The view to the beach was great and lunch area was set up nicely – they had provided us with linens

Gus Papadopoulos

Ok ask for things that should have been included but did not get them Like an extra pillow Towels for 2 peopleI got 2 bath towels for 2 days! Asked for early check in and it was an hour late

As a guest I wanted to take a photo of the beach Went on to the upper patio where I was go to have a 3800 breakfast and the lady asked me to leave That area is only for guests They when I explained I was , I was told to sit down I did not stay she did not make me feel comfortable I did tell the waitress who was sweet however I just left The banquet food was outstanding Chicken moist, beef tender and even the lunch on the beach was lovely One thing I noticed was a young lady asked the kitchen to hold her food she was giving a speech The kitchen did not hold her food and she did not get a meal That was very upsetting I felt bad You never let anyone go hungry Give them something That should not have happened The room was clean and the parking attendants were nice Servers at the luncheon were kind and helpful Bar tenders were nice I asked for a specific beverage the mixer to that beverage was off Tasted weird Common areas appeared clean

Brian Klukososki

Great location but dated You have a great pool and you are on the beach You can easily walk to the pier or any of the shops and restaurants

The main areas are nice Almost all rooms have balconies which is great Even though rooms seemed to get upgrades it still feels older Noisy toilet, AC that can’t keep up with the heat and beds that you sink off and aren’t firm Our closet was musty probably from wet items put on the carpet inside

Jake at the front desk is a great asset to your organization My wife and I checked in at about 6:00 pm on a Thursday with at least three other guests ahead of us on line and at least 2 phone lines ringing Jake handled everything and everyone professionally and courteously

The room was fine although the shade on the door to the balcony needs repair

Nice, clean hotel Up to date amenities, very large room with kitchenette Hotel is in a beautiful neighborhood and there are 2 very good restaurants in the same plaza

The only thing we didn’t care for was the very soft bed which left us both with sore lower backs, you actually have to struggle to get out of the bed There is no breakfast offered but there is a very good diner in the same plaza

This is my 4 time stay in this hotel The only reason why I give a two star is because the big issues that I had with valet while staying here, but otherwise I would definitely stay here again if they clean the valet parking staff This is the second bad experience that I have with the valet parking

The prior time that I stay in this hotel my car was hit at the valet parking and they blame a hotel guest for the accident when is supposed to be a valet parking only Guest are not supposed to be driving there car period I’m a disabled veteran so this time I asked the to park the car on the bottom floor and not to be moved for the time that I stay in the hotel They told me that it will not be an issue and took my keys Not even 3 hours late the car was moved when I went to ask I was told that it was moved to park a employee car from the same valet staff When i brought the issue with the manager of the valet parking That employee that moved my car to park his did not like it and stated to be super aggressive and very unprofessional He started to threatening me and using profanity words in front of my family and other guests This employee should have been fire on the spot or at least suspended that night and they did nothing I brought up the problem personally with the general manager he started that he will personally address the problem I hope he will They definitely need better staff at the valet parking For the other part the hotel was VERY clean and ALL of the front desk staff was friendly and professional like always The complimentary breakfast had PLENTY of options and the pool was nice The hotel location is super

Rachel “Rachel Eats” S.

This hotel is a nice convenient beach access location It is a good location to walk into either the restaurant and shopping areas but also near the water We have a view of the ocean from our room that is pretty sweet

Overall worth a stay here but not sure if it fits the aesthetic my boyfriend and I like to have with our hotels But definitely worth a stay and it will be fun!

David Cole

Just finished a stay at the Marriot, location is great and about a 2 minute walk to the beach (cut through the Surf Style store) Front Desk staff were awesome as were all of the staff that we spoke or interacted with Included breakfast was great and the workers were very friendly and helpful

Parked at the hotel which was $25 / night which is reasonable and includes the next day as well Rooms were on the smaller side but had everything we needed Will for sure come back to this hotel in the future

Very nice hotel and stay Nice views if you get gulf or pool front Service was great

Only issue was breakfast We paid over $1000 for 2 nights and they charge for breakfast Not only do they charge but the breakfast is very poor!!! No bacon no sausage no biscuits no eggs Just instant pancakes cereal and fruit If you want a good breakfast, you have to walk over to the next hotel Also got disappointed by the edge restaurant on the roof Says they close at 12 I took my family at 10 We sat and sat until I went to get a waitress and was told “oh our kitchen is closed” Bummer But other than the breakfast and dinner the hotel was a nice stay

Very nice vacation spot and everything in walking distance Love the bar by the pool as well as the rooftop bar Would definitely come again

Only thing I’d change is the music at the pool plays the same songs on repeat every day, so it would be nice to mix them up The floor by the pool also gets really slippery and we saw some people slip multiple times

I’m incredibly dissatisfied with my stay at the Edge Views from the room are not as described, and the room in itself felt incomplete Overall cleanliness was good, but the shower had absolutely no pressure at all! I did not feel clean for the entire trip because of the way the shower was, couldn’t even get my chin-length hair completely soaked

My overall issue with the hotel is customer service Most of the staff were incredibly dishonest and condescending, and felt overall hostile I believe this would have been a great hotel to stay at if it wasn’t for these things It’s in a very cool location and the pools are nice, I guess that just ruined it for me

We were so pleased by this hotel and the location Our room was very spacious and had the best screened-in porch on the second floor, looking towards the marina Room service was a little confusing, as we weren’t expecting them until the 3rd day, but they came the first two days and then no more until checkout

This was not a big deal at all for us as we were able to easily leave our dirty towels and trash outside of our door and request fresh towels as needed All of the hotel staff from front desk, to housekeeping, to breakfast attendant were all very accommodating Free breakfast was a plus for us and it was decent We enjoyed the pool a couple of days as well The location to downtown Dunedin is the icing on the cake for me Walking distance to so many restaurants and shops There is also a park with playground for children right next door And a pier next to the marina that is such a nice spot to sit in the mornings or to watch the sunset We were lucky enough one morning to be able to watch dolphins Would definitely stay here if we are fortunate enough to visit this area again!

Amazing stay here!!! Cathy at the front desk was so helpful, funny and sweet! We ended up talking for 15 minutes at check in Our room was beautiful, spacious, comfy, nice showers and a private balcony Perfect location as well

Pool area was great and placed to get the most out of the sun Breakfast was also enjoyable and they have a proper coffee machine serving various options Highly recommend staying here On top of all this -Breathtaking sunsets every night

Rick Roach

Surprisingly not your average Best Western Awesome view looking over the water, 2 seafood restaurants and the yacht club Inground pool is clean

Our room was huge Even with the hot tub and king-size bed, plenty room for a romantic dance Free breakfast was sad Powdered scramble eggs, greasy bacon No sausage Regular coffee dispenser was not working so they had decaf coffee We were discussing that having fresh brewed coffee available would solve the issue

We stayed here for a week and we enjoyed it The pool is nice, the hotel and spot it’s in is a little walk from restaurants and beach which is nice because it’s not to loud or crazy when you are relaxing in your room The kitchen was nice and it came stocked with dishes

The only complaint I have is they canceled our reservation due to an issue with my card but never told us We travel all the way from NYC and were exhausted, they were unable to give us the room we originally booked but did give us a small refund and gave us a different room I would have liked to have better communication with my reservation Other than that the staff was great and very accommodating, I will most likely stay here again

Upon arrival it was a bit confusing to find the main entrance or lobby Check in was quick and simple I would suggest that the guest be given info on where the ice machine and laundry are located

The room size was perfect and allowed separation of adult and child spaces I had 2 teens and it would have made for miserable vacation if we had stayed in a regular hotel room The pool and outdoor area are nice, but we did have to ask for the pool to be cleaned though due to debris and lots of sand in the pool With a few updates and someone to attend to the pool area daily (vacuum, blow the sand off the cushions and clean up a little) they could have an amazing outdoor space Overall our stay was good and we would definitely stay here again If you decide to stay at Coconut Cove you MUST eat at the Italian restaurant next door!!

Korea Scott

Reasonably priced Room was nice and clean Fully equipped kitchen

Great location Only 6 minute walk to beach, restaurants and entertainment Locate trolly was right outside the front door WiFi was very slow and there are no elevators as I had my elderly parents with me and we had to walk 4 flights of stairs at a time Staff was kind Only complaint was construction of a nearby hotel blocked view Will definitely come back again

Our room wasn’t ready until almost an hour after check in time, but the front desk worker was friendly Our room was clean and spacious (maybe bigger than a typical room because it was handicap accessible) Our bed was very comfortable

The pool had a nice view but could have used some maintenance and cleaning The breakfast was SO crowded We stopped by at 8am and there was a great variety of foods but only apples for fruit We stopped by again at 945am to grab a yogurt to go and it looked like they had run out of fresh cut fruit that was later placed out? and replaced almost everything from before (sandwiches, sausage gravy, French toast) with hard boiled eggs Most of the bread products were already put away or not replenished If we wouldn’t have eaten earlier I would have been very disappointed

I am 32 with no kids, and this hotel was packed with kids and families In the morning kids yelled in their rooms starting at 7 am and then you would hear them running down the halls to breakfast, and after that you heard them at the pool all day The pool was overcrowded a few times throughout the day

Other than that the pool and balcony were nice The hotel was nice, and so were the rooms Great location I did feel a little fooled because the picture showed a waterfront hotel, it was water, but not the ocean The ocean was only a building or two away, I mostly walked through the surf shop and straight to the beach The bar in the hotel was great A lady named Kelly made amazing mojitos and was very sweet AC worked great in the room, the bathroom was very clean, and the bedding was soft I wish the room had a tub to be able to take a bath in, instead of the stand-up shower, but I understand most people like stand-up showers betterI had a great weekend here, with the minor inconveniences of the noise from kids The location was very perfect 2 Starbucks in walking distance, the surf shop had a mini grocery store across the street, and restaurants/bars everywhere More of a family vacation spot than i expected but a still great hotel


We loved our stay at Springhill Suites It is close to everything!! The beach is just through surf style The staff was very friendly

Any time we requested additional linens they were there within minutes The pool has a view of the bay The breakfast may just have been the best part TONS of options and everyday something new I would stay here again in a heart beat!

Awesome spot Lea and Anna were very accommodating when we had to change our guest numbers last minute Had everything our family needed

Kids loved the pool and my wife and I loved the private dock outback at night The outside of Sand n Sea lit up at night with cool colored lights that give an old school feel Everything was clean, comfortable, and cool inside our suite Beach was a 2 minute walk Highly recommend a stay at this beautiful location We will definitely be back!!!

Karla S

This property was very clean, convenient and comfortable The location was excellent, being right on the bay where I could watch sunrise and steps away from the beach where I watched sunset I was able to walk to restaurants and shops

The bed was very comfortable, the property was quiet so I rested well I’m so happy with my stay and will be back

Lindsay Lucente

Absolutely in love with this place! Will definitely be coming back in the future Came for a long weekend with my fiancé and we enjoyed sitting by the bay each morning having coffee, we also got super lucky and seen plenty of dolphins swimming in the bay and even got an amazing video of the dolphin who came right by the dock we were staying byA few days that we stayed it rained and Lea was kind enough to email us with tons of things to do in the surrounding areas, so we had plenty to do even on the rainy days

A very great host, the room was clean and we can’t wait to come back!

My wife and I had a great stay at Beso Del Sol! We had a great view of the water and watched some amazing sunsets Our room was clean and well furnished making it very comfortable Everyone was very friendly and helpful plus The Marker 8 had great food and drinks! Mia, who checked us in was fantastic

She made sure we felt welcomed and comfortable plus threw in a few great tips for local eats


Water front was beautiful Staff was friendly But they lied about what room we booked

Found out from one of the staff that they the people in charge do it all the time So fair warning if you book a room that supposed to have a view, separate living area from the bed room they’re lying to you It’s a studio room Other than that they stay was nice
