Property sits in the heart of Clearwater Beach's resort area
Room rates do not include parking or property's daily resort fee
This resort evokes memories of a classic Florida vacation. Located on resort-congested Mandalay Avenue, the Sandpearl Resort boasts plenty of activities for kids. The seasonal Camp Ridley will occupy your children ages 5 to 10 with arts and crafts projects and scavenger hunts for half-day sessions, freeing you up to sample a few spa treatments, rent a slip for sailing the Clearwater area or enjoy a leisurely lunch at the guest-praised Caretta on the Gulf. And when it's time to bed down, rooms include flat-screen TVs, minifridges, coffee makers and radios with iPod docking capabilities. Though most recent guests raved about the well-appointed rooms, they also bemoaned the tacked-on resort fee and extra charge for parking. The Sandpearl Resort sits on Caladesi Island, a barrier island off the coast of Clearwater, Florida. This property is affiliated with the Preferred LVX collection of resorts, meaning iPrefer members can earn or redeem points while staying here.

Two things set this expansive, luxurious Clearwater Beach resort apart from other upscale accommodations in the vicinity: it's not part of a major chain, and the property has deep local ties.
