This is the most beautiful venue for a wedding in Clearwater! We wanted our wedding and reception outside and after looking all over St Pete and Clearwater, the moment we walked in The Sandpearl we knew it was the perfect place! Everything about the resort makes you feel like... Read More you are on a 5 start vacation. One of the kids at our wedding said it felt like they were at a palace. The view and the beach is amazing, great lawn space for a reception, rooms are beautiful. The food is amazing- all of our guests were talking about good everything was. Jennifer at the Sandpearl was a delight to work with. Very helpful and friendly- I can't imagine anyone doing a better job! This was the best day of our lives and there is no place else I would have considered having my wedding.

I had my wedding on 7/19/13 at the Sandpearl Resort. I was supposed to get married on the Pool Lawn at 6 p.m., however, it began raining at 5:55, so it was moved indoors.

The food and service at the cabana is wonderful. My guests loved it, and it was an ideal location for friends and family to visit as they arrived. Now to the disappointments. We got our honeymoon suite for free with a minimum 2 night stay (we had to pay one night), which was fine for the bridal party to get ready that day. I had to ask the bellhop if we were in the correct room because it was not at all what I envisioned as a suite. It was a tight squeeze for 4 people, and super cramped for the bridal party, hair and makeup, and photographers. The worst part was the front desk. They could have cared less we were spending a ton of money there with a rehearsal dinner, ceremony and reception, and brunch. I might as well had been some woman off the street. Whenever I had a question, they required me to sit over on the couches for 30 to 45 minutes while they leisurely did not find an answer. What made me the most mad was the when we checked in the day of the rehearsal. We got there early because we rented a cabana. Check-in was not until 4, which was the same time as the rehearsal dinner. My fiancee got there at 9 to ask if the rooms could be ready a little early so the bridesmaids and myself could get ready. They said sure we will call you probably around lunch time. Around two o'clock I started to become concerned. They were basically like well did you get a call, then the room isn't ready. At 3 o'clock I got even more upset but was reprimanded to sit on couches. Finally, we got in the room at 3:15 and bags at 3:30 and were late for rehearsal. They wouldn't even bring up our complimentary glasses of champagne.
