Clearwater Florida  is one of my favorite beach towns in America.  With pristine white sand beaches and sparkling blue water, Clearwater Beach was recently named America’s Best Beach.  Clearwater is a great area that is packed with things to do.  The restaurants are amazing, plenty of bars, lots for family friendly activities to do- it is the perfect place for a weekend away, a romantic getaway or a fun spring break.  Here is a list of some of the best hotels on Clearwater Beach.

Opal Sands

The Opal Sands is an luxurious resort located directly on the Gulf of Mexico.  Everything about this resort is first class and it was voted as one of the top 500 hotels in the world.  With 230 gulf front rooms and suites, a white sand beach, a heated gulf front zero entry pool and hot tub, beachside tiki bar, full service spa, amazing food and drinks, jet ski and paddle board rentals, the Opal Sands has it all!  And to make this resort even better – it is pet friendly!    Guests bringing canine companions will also be outfitted with a plush Opal Paws dog mat and food and water bowls to ensure your dog’s vacation is as great as yours.  If you are looking for a luxurious getaway, Opal Sands is your place!

Sandpearl Resort

The Sand Pearl is a four diamond resort located directly on the beautiful white sand beach.  The Sandpearl Resort’s 253 guest rooms and suites are dog friendly and some can  accommodate up to 8 guests  making this resort a perfect place for couples or larger groups.   The relaxed beach front resort has views of the city of Clearwater and the  Gulf of Mexico. There is a world class spa, vegan options at the amazing restaurants, a beachfront bar and a stunning beachfront pool and even a fire pit on the beach.  Sandpearl Resort is also a leader in environmental conservation.  They are the first Silver LEED-certified resort in the state, a member of the Florida Green Lodging Program and also participate in Clean the World, which recycles our guests’ leftover soap and shampoo to reduce waste while simultaneously providing essential items to impoverished communities.

Hyatt Regency

I have always loved the Hyatt – a massive pink hotel that is conveniently located just across the street from the beach!  The location is perfect and there are so many options for bars, restaurants and shops all within a very short walk.  The hotel itself is stunning and the sunset views are incredible.  The Hyatt offers guest rooms, suites and kitchenettes and the comfort and quality is what you would expect from Hyatt.  There are amazing restaurants and bars and the pool on the 8th floor is fantastic and has views of the Gulf.  They offer poolside cabanas and the hotel has a great fitness center and spa.  

Wyndham Grand

A stay at the Wyndham Grand Clearwater Beach resort is an experience you soon wont forget.  With so many amenities, including a full-service spa, an outdoor pool and whirlpool spa, a 24/7 fitness center, and multiple dining options. All 343 beautifully designed rooms feature a spectacular view of the water or nearby marina.  The Wyndham Grand is just steps away from the beach and the famous Pier 60. 

The Edge

The Edge is a great hotel with a fabulous rooftop bar and a 27-foot long glass wall pool will give you the illusion of swimming off the edge into the Gulf of Mexico!  This is our go-to rooftop in Clearwater!  The 155 rooms and suites all have a private balcony with views of the gulf, pool or city.  They even offer family rooms that can accommodate 8 quests.  There are two restaurants, two pools, and a fitness center.  This hotel is great – and the rooftop can’t be beat!
