Great help from the beach team of Andrew, Tim, Nick, Allen, Zach, & Mike were great in getting my wife set up to enjoy the beach. Great job. She really loved the time under the umbrella enjoying the incredible view and warm breeze.

Our long weekend getaway got shortened when our flight was cancelled but we still wanted to see that white sand and beautiful sunset so we came and it was worth it! The weather cooperated and it was a balmy 75 degrees.. The breeze was a little stiff but we enjoyed every minute of the pampering at the pool side, great...

Stayed here based on advice from a good friend. Nothing but high accolades for this property. Courteous service, very comfortable bed and room, great pools and beach. Kudos to Justin the restaurant/bar manager, Sid the bartender at the piano bar and Joe the poolside bartender. You won't be disappointed.

Historic hotel, right on the beach. Large and very comfortable room with a bit antiquated bathroom.. Unfortunately, the pool is always packed with non-hotel guests (!) and a lot of kids... However, it has a nice bar area with live music, cocktails and good food.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)

Born in the Great Gatsby era as a playground for the rich and famous, the iconic "Pink Palace" has been revitalized and refreshed within, ensuring a future as rich and storied as its history. Enjoy newly redesigned 277 luxurious rooms including 36 suites, many with spectacular views of the pristine Gulf beaches or Boca Ciega Bay. Relax and indulge at Spa Oceana, featuring over 11,000 square feet of spa facilities, luxurious spa treatments, full service salon, and a stunning rooftop garden overlooking the azure waters of the Gulf of Mexico. ... more   less
