Clearwater Beach vacation

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the Pelican Point Beach Resort. My husband and eleven year old son and I stayed at the condo for 5 days in May and we had a great experience. The condo is on the fourth floor and was very quiet but yet very accessible to the pool, etc. since the unit was not far from the elevator. The condo was stocked with plenty of towels and linens and the kitchen was also equipped glasses, plates and paper towels and other necessities. We were especially happy to see there was even enough coffee for the week.

The resort had a really nice pool with plenty of chairs and umbrellas. The best feature of the unit was it's proximity to the's just across the street. We were blessed with great weather and we would recommend this rental unit to anyone.

Excellent for our needs and close to amenities

  • 5 of 5

Had everything we needed, very comfortable bed and the air con was well needed with the temperature we had while staying their, the staff at the hotel were friendly and very helpful. It is very close to the beach and found the local bars and restaurants were very friendly, there also is a nice Chinese restaurant. We do not drive, however right outside is a bus stand where we could get transport for 5 dollars or 2.50 dollars if you are 65 or over, we hopped on the bus to Fort Harrison and went to O'Keeths and Irish Bar, the food was excellent they do English food and we had Green beer which didn't change the taste, went to St Pete's Beach, St Johns Pass and Tarpon Springs via the bus and Jolly Trolley, excellent as you can hop on and off when you want. Pier 60 and Cruises and Dolphin Tours are only a short walk away, or you can get a free taxi ride where they work on tips only, the view of the sunsets were outstanding from the beach and a must too see. i would definitely stay their again and look forward to planning our next trip

Great location, Great Price!

  • 4 of 5

We decided on the condo based on previous reviews and the selling point was location location location and price. We were not disappointed. To feel the sand under your feet is a 2 minute walk across the street. Once you park your car at the condo building you will not need it again until you leave. The pier, shops and restaurants are all within walking distance. I would consider the condo more like a studio apartment. It had a bedroom divided by a half wall that looks into the sitting / dining area. The sitting area had a futon that was also used for our 8 year old to sleep on, I wouldn't recommend for an adult, but most kids can sleep anywhere. It also had a small round table with 2 chairs. The kitchen had a very small refrigerator, coffee maker (we did not use, we took our own) toaster oven (we did not use) and a sink, no stove/oven. We were 2 adults and a child and we were fine, we ate dinner out and mainly used to shower and sleep. For breakfast we had cereal and packed our lunch for the beach or ate at the tiki hut of the hotel Opal Sands, which is across the street from Pelican Pointe and the rooms start at $350 per night. Pelican Pointe is an older building and this unit is on the 4th floor. The view from the window is a parking lot and other buildings. It is not luxurious but it was clean and had everything we needed. We would return no hesitation!

Great Place

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights in mid-August 2016. The room was clean and well stocked. The resort was a short walk to the beach, Pier 60, and all of the shops. I had a few questions prior to our arrival, and Carole was very prompt and helpful. This will be the first place we try to book for our next vacation to Clearwater Beach.

Exceeded our expectations!

  • 5 of 5

We were very impressed with how clean the apartment was and how well appointed it was. The bed was comfortable and there were plenty of extra blankets and towels. The 3 minute walk to the beach/gulf was fanstastic and the 2 beach chairs in the room were definately put to good use! The resort is in a great location and within a short walking distance to the beachwalk, miniature golf and great restaurants and shops.

When we return to Clearwater, I know where we'll stay! Thank you for the hospitality!

Great location, disappointed with apartment

  • 2 of 5

The location is excellent however the apartment is in need of a total refurb. The furniture is very dated , the bed creaks when you just sit on it, the tv is in a cabinet which is very old fashioned nowadays and the kitchen plates and cups were chipped- not good. I appreciate we paid less than if we had booked direct with the hotel but I expect a certain standard. Very disappointed with the inside of this apartment .

Owner's Response: Sorry to hear you were disappointed. if I owned many units I would probably have different designs in each unit two satisfy everyone's taste. I only have one Condo in Clearwater Beach that I rent and I love the tropical Tommy Bahama style furniture that I chose for this condo. This high-end quality furniture is made of all solid wood, (no pressboard here). But since your visit I have installed a brand-new wall-mounted 32 inch flatscreen TV and I have replaced the dishes and silverware. I also purchased a new futon cover with a more tropical pattern. If you let me know what style you like I will be happy to refer you somewhere else. There is a high end luxury hotel across the street that is very modern perhaps that would suit your needs but be prepared to pay upwards of $300 per night. I hope you will come visit us again someday.
