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.

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
Everything was fine. Thinking $200.00 for 4 nights parking and resort fee was a little over the top. Web site was little confusing. I had paid to be upgraded only to find myself overlooking a 4th floor roof with nice view of exhaust fans. Upgraded a second time for a better room for another $100.00 Otherwise the resort was very nice. That's the only reason for lower value hit. Just wife and I so would consider staying here again.
The hotel is beautiful and so is the view. The bed was only somewhat comfortable. Sheets are too stiff. My husband ended up sleeping on the reclining chair in the room. The hotel is in a great location.
The property is fantastic! Located right across the street from the beach & close to the pier! It was the perfect location for staying with 2 small kids! Only issue was the pool is deep for a 1 year old. I did not see a shallow end for my youngest to play/splash in. My 8 year old had a great time!We had the room with bunk beds worked out perfect for this quick trip. Had a fantastic view of the ocean / pier and the bay.Food & coffee at the hotel was pricy $5+ for a basic cup of Starbucks in the lobby & the breakfast buffet was tasty but $25pp! You can walk to nearby restaurants and eat for less. We would stay again & recommend this for families. The beds were super comfy, the staff went above and beyond to accommodate our requests!
The facility is very new. The staff was great. Great views and pool area. If you walk out the front door there is a well stocked convenience store in Ron Jon’s about a block to the right. Food, Drinks, Snacks, and a flowrider for your indoor surfing needs.
The Wyndham is a nicer hotel but the hotel next door had a roomier layout for business meetings.
I am beyond impressed with this establishment. I only ordered my drinks at Doc K’s with Sebastian who was absolutely above and beyond; between his attitude and bartending. Thank you for the amazing service, I will be coming back very soon!
