Sandpearl Resort is the #10 resort hotel in all of Florida, according to Travel + Leisure World’s Best Awards 2020, so you know this one is a winner! With an amazing pool located right on Clearwater Beach, a poolside restaurant and cafe with super friendly staff, and a beautiful interior filled with coastal-inspired decor, this spot is on the top of our list. 

For the adventurous vacationers, Sandpearl also offers a variety of enrichment programs that include dolphin encounters, organic food and wine tastings, and tours of the resort’s impressive art collection.

Edge Hotel

We love everything about Edge Hotel, but our favorite part is the pools. This resort offers two large pools, and one backs up against a glass wall that gives you a stunning view of the Gulf!

We’d be surprised if you went anywhere else while staying here, but if you do, there’s plenty nearby to enjoy, including restaurants and shops and a free trolley to take you anywhere you don’t feel like walking to!
