Incredible Anniversary Get Away - TripAdvisor

This was the first time at this resort, but second time visiting Treasure Island. We love this area and knew that we wanted to celebrate our 20th on the beach. We loved our 2 bedroom suite with 2 bathrooms that was a bonus when getting ready to go out. The suite was very clean and we loved the view of the gulf from the balcony. I wish that you could choose your room when you reserved, but you have to wait until you get there to get your actuall room #. We knew only that we were getting a partial gulf view, so we were worried that we would be overlooking the parking lot. We really lucked out and got a great end room on the 5th floor overlooking the back lawn and kids' pool. If you are looking for a party resort then don't choose Sunset Vistas. We loved the family atmosphere and quietness. We never had a problem sleeping at all because the rooms were so quiet. The beach was so close compared to other resorts on the stretch. We went to WalMart and bought beach chairs for $15 and a cheap beach umbrella instead of renting them each day and it worked out great. It's $30 a day to rent 2 loungers and an umbrella. Always check the box before the beach to see what people have left behind. If you want to walk to a restaurant it will be about a mile. We walked to John's Pass one night and the distance wasn't too bad. They have some good restaurants and bars there. I would recommend driving up to Clearwater and visiting Pier 60 in the evening when they have street performers, vendors and awesome sunsets- lots of fun! The surf shop there is huge with tons of beach clothing. You can also take cruises out of Clearwater. We took the Calypso Queen out for a lunch cruise. You will not be disappointed with this resort and it's within driving distance to everything. OH, and visit the Shake Shop right next door. They have the best shakes and malts ever with tons of flavors to choose from. We definitely will be back with our kids the next time.
