The Wyndham Clearwater Beach Resort truly nails it in the beach-vacation department. Not only does it sit directly on Clearwater Beach, which TripAdvisor voted the best in America at 2016, but it adds all sorts of lovely touches to the sun-soaked setting. Enjoy the sea breeze on your private balcony, grab a drink or two at the elegant bar, or channel-surf on your 50-in. flat-screen HDTV.
As luxe as the accommodations are, you’re not going to want to spend all your time indoors. Grab a sun lounger by the pool, or try your hand at a range of watersports, like parasailing and scuba diving, available through local numerous suppliers. If you’re willing to hop in the car for a bit, you can also relocate to another sparkling shoreline – St. Pete or farther-out Siesta Beach, for instance – or perhaps explore another side of the local landscape. One of the only completely natural islands on the Gulf Coast, Caladesi Island State Park is a 15-minute drive.
Your abode is a coastally inspired, crisply decorated, modern, minimalist space, with brand-new décor. It’s one of 105 in the resort and looks onto the water or the marina. Two Bedroom Deluxe condos range from 1,120 to 1,214 square feet and accommodate up to eight guests. The private bedroom holds a king bed, and there are two full beds in the guest bedroom – in addition to a queen sleeper sofa in the living room. You’ll also enjoy two bathrooms, a washer and dryer, a full kitchen and a balcony.
Amenities- 50-in. flat-screen TV with cable channels- Balcony or patio- Wi-Fi access (fees apply)- Ceiling fans- In-room safe- Hair dryer- Alarm-clock radio- Iron and ironing board
The hotel’s dining program emphasizes fresh, local ingredients, such as seafood and farm-raised meats. The signature restaurant is Ocean Hai, the only Asian-fusion spot in Clearwater, under Executive Chef Claude Rodier, opening for three meals a day and overlooking the Gulf. There’s a second eatery by the pool, also serving frozen cocktails, and a café resides at lobby level. If you prefer to dine in private, order in room service, 24 hours a day.
Pallavi Spa’s name translates to “new leaf,” and it’s on a mission to help you turn one over. Find peace and tranquility in this 5,700-square-foot wellness center, during a Body Nectar Nourishing Wrap, Thousand Flower Detox Wrap, Aroma Stone Massage or Hydrotherapy Bath. There’s also a steam room, along with an experience shower. After your therapy, you can work up a sweat in the Gulf-view fitness center.
Clearwater is famous for its beach, with – as the name suggests – bright-white sands and crystal-clear waters; the shore was voted the best in America in 2016. As a guest of Wyndham Clearwater Beach Resort, you’ll be right on the shore and near several watersport suppliers, as well as an easy drive from Caladesi Island State Park, an indoor FlowRider, a mini-golf course, Tampa’s Plant Museum and Busch Gardens and St. Petersburg’s Dalí Museum and Chihuly Collection. Orlando and Disney World are within day-tripping distance.
How to Get There
Came for husband's birthday getaway and it was a great experience. The only activity is the beach and water stuff so it's a great place to relax. We had a 9th floor beach front room that was spacious and we'll appointed.
Breakfast buffet was great. We were pleasantly surprised that beach cabanas with chairs were only $10.
If you are a pool person be forewarned that the pool is small and gets crowded.
Will definitely return.
Beautiful! Property is beautiful and staff is so kind and helpful! We were offered mimosa’s upon arrival. The hotel is located right on the beach near the pier with restaurants and shopping. Such a wonderful stay!
The hotel is located near everything and right across from the beach. All the staff I encountered were friendly and helpful. The valet parking was quick to retrieve our car every time we left the hotel. With the resort fee you also receive two lounge chairs and umbrella so no need to pay anyone on the beach. If going on a Saturday make sure you get to beach early as the chairs/cabanas fill up quick. There is not one complaint I can provide about the Wyndham Grand. Thank you for a great relaxing weekend!
We had the top floor overlooking beach/pier. View was great! Staff excelled at smiles and friendliness.
Pool was small for the size of the hotel and quite crowded.
Weather was great, beach umbrellas were free and cabanas $10. Across the street was the marina with many opportunities for sightseeing waterways. Dolphin watches, deep sea fishing, jet skis, dinner cruise on a yacht, plus many more.
Stayed here from April 23rd until the 28th. The room was beautiful and spacious, with a breathtaking, 12th floor view from our balcony of the ocean, bay, and city. Within walking distance to tons of restaurants and shopping. Pool was nice, and steps away from the beach, where there were complimentary beach chairs with umbrellas.
I was HIGHLY annoyed at all the hidden fees and gratuities. Room service is great if you don't mind paying thirty dollars for a cheeseburger and fries. That's about the cost once you realize there is a delivery fee and 22% gratuity automatically added in. We tipped because we didn't realize it was included until our last night. This is also the case at the pool bar and the lobby bar. I feel that guests should be informed of this instead of having to read the fine print on the back of the menu.
You also need to keep tight grip on your towel cards if you don't want to be charged 40 dollars for a pool towel. You turn one card in for one towel, and get it back when you turn in your towel. One word of warning. Watch your pool chair if you decide to have lunch. Hubby and I left our pool chairs to have lunch at the pool bar, and one of the employees was about to remove all of our things. My husband had to rush over to let her know we were still in the area. I would have been pissed had she taken our pool towels and we would have been stuck with an eighty dollar bill because an employee took our towels.
Bottom line. I don't mind gratuities being added to a bill. Saves me the trouble of doing the math. But, guests should know that it is included and of any other hidden fees so we don't feel blind sided when we check out and realized our wait staff was double tipped. (Have you ever intentionally left a 40% tip?) This information could easily be disclosed by your check in staff when they give the spill about hotel amenities.
