Best experience I ever had! - TripAdvisor

I was in such a rush it was difficult for me to remember her name it was along the lines of Melony or Melody. She made sure she followed up with housekeeping to make sure the room would be available for my early check-in. The entire staff was friendly and very accommodating to assist me with my surprise to my boyfriend. I must say I wasn't expecting much but after speaking with the front desk before arriving I knew it was a great start to my stay. The room was PERFECT I couldn't believe it. The room was so gorgeous and had everything I needed along with a perfect view. I just want to say thank you to management and all of the employees that played a part in making my stay memorable.

Great Experience

We had a great hotel experience. I had emailed the manager a few weeks ahead of time to ask if we could get a full view room because we were coming for our anniversary. He emailed me back right away to let me know that he would be happy to accommodate and that he would also be sure we received a renovated room. When we arrived and went to our room he made good on his word. We had a great view and a nice room. They also put some flowers in a vase on the counter, a card, a couple glasses, and a bottle of champagne in the fridge. They went above and beyond to make our stay great. Thank you!

Fabulous View Of The Bay! - TripAdvisor

The staff members at Sailport Waterfront Suites were very friendly! The location couldn't have been better! We were close to restaurants, the airport, and the beaches. We stayed at the resort for 3 nights and loved every minute. Our suite was clean and very beachy. The beds were very comfortable. Our balcony view was just awesome!

Another excellent stay - TripAdvisor

I have stayed at this hotel/condo many times and this stay has been one of my best. The condo is regularly updated. Nothing fancy but a very nice and enjoyable condo. My room was spotless. On this trip I had an excellent check in, wonderful room, beautiful view of pool and bay and excellent check out. I have noticed security has increased which is good. Security stops anyone entering requiring your car pass. Internet connection was very good. Will continue to stay here again and again. RichieRich2010 Charleston, South Carolina

Summer of 2013

My family and I stayed here last year. We loved it!!! The personnel was awesome and met our every request except for the fishing pole that we wanted but they were checked out. It's convenient to Busch Gardens and their waterpark. Will stay again.

Great Stay - TripAdvisor

We only had the opportunity to stay here for 2 nights, but sure wish we could have stayed longer! I would highly recommend this establishment. The suites were spacious and clean and really close to many Tampa/St. Petersburg attractions. The sunset was a huge bonus! Hope to stay here again soon! Stayed February 2014, traveled with family

Amazing - TripAdvisor

We just returned after a one week stay at Sailoprt. We were sad to leave and plan to return in the fall for a month. The suite & service were excellent and everything was provided right down to a toaster and a hair dryer to make sure you enjoyed your stay. The view is fantastic and the facilities are very clean including the suite, the pool area, the beach area and the fishing pier. Tampa is a beautiful city with everything you can ask for and is the middle of all major Florida attractions. Being Canadians we made sure we saw an NHL game while in Tampa and the prices, parking facilities and arena are top notch.


We were in Florida for college visits and spent our last couple of days at Sailport. From the moment we drove in: the security guard at the covered parking was pleasant, the desk clerk was great, and the 2 bedroom place we had...awesome. Great view, nice beach to lounge on, and quite peaceful. Money well spent...we will certainly return.

Such a Pleasant Surprise - TripAdvisor

I booked last minute to get my mom out of town for her birthday. What a pleasant surprise! The staff went above and beyond. Special thanks to Katie and Evie. They made sure we had the perfect room. It was peaceful, beautiful views, spacious and had a great kitchen. We will certainly go back. We met such nice people at an onsite fire pit, overlooking Tampa Bay. Thanks Sailport Staff! We will see you again soon, Kerri & Pat

Sailport Does it Again - TripAdvisor

I've availed myself of the various services offered by Sailport Waterfront Suites 3 times so far and plan to visit them again in the future. These 3 times were in conjunction with planned surgery at The Laser Spine Institute. My surgery was completely successful and the assistance of your wonderful hotel was a big part of the process. All the way from the front desk knowledgeable personnel to my transport angel Mike who handled me more gently and with more care and knowledge than any other person that I've yet to meet. Mike is aware of the need for steadying hands and supporting arms to the patient both pre and post surgery. I've experienced 3 types of accommodations:a single bedroom suite, a suite with an additional queen size bed in the living room and finally, a 2 bedroom suite. All were roomy and had a great view of the lovely waterfront and the wonderful sunsets. Transportation to the recommended restaurants was an unexpected luxury. The ability of the hospital to use a phone-in service to a nearby pharmacy for prescription of my needed medication delivery to your hotel was an unexpected luxury and allowed my caregiver an uninterrupted stay with me. Finding a get well card from the hotel along with ice cream bars when returning to the hotel following surgery gave me a feeling that the hotel really does care about their residents. When Harry from the hotel provided wheelchair service directly from their limousine to my room, I knew that this hotel far surpassed any service I'd ever experienced in my recent travels. I will enjoy returning to this hotel in the future for a purely vacation experience and this time I will be able to walk joyfully to the free cappuccino in the mornings. Sailport Waterfront Suites is the BEST!!!

“A wonderful 3 weeks” TripAdvisor

We spent 3 weeks at Sailport Waterfront suites in February 2014 (Room 212). A great location to use as a base for sightseeing, cinemas and shopping. Excellent restaurants nearby. Staff most friendly. Property is well maintained and constantly being tended to. Upgrades to suites an ongoing process. Highly recommended. curly352014 Goderich, Canada

Home Away from Home - TripAdvisor

Sailport is very accomodating. It is almost like you can borrow coffee from a neighbor. One person went above and beyond the call of duty. The person in mentioning is Arlene. She was so sweet and just like a family member. My husband and I visited the Whiskey Joe's restaurant which we met up with Arlene there unexpectedly. She invited us to sit by the fire pit right along the beach side and we really had a great time together she bought us a drink she told us that whenever we come back to the area to please look her up and she would be sure to take good care of us I thought that was so sweet. Also, the free cappuccino in the mornings is a great perk. We are staying are staying with them again now to go to for another surgery at LSI and are very excited. There are a lot of changes and renovations in the furniture and even an outdoor gym now!!! We love Sailport.

Nice Hotel, Heated Pool, Great Sunsets Expedi

The location was easy to find,close to the airport. There were nice restaurants within driving distance. The hotel pool is heated and warm. There is a nice sandy area to sit in and watch sunsets. There is a small pier that people caught fish from. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable about the local area and where to go for meals.We did day trips to Tampa Bay and to Clearwater beach very easily. The office has a small store where you can buy snacks and is very convenient. We had a nice stay and will come back

Great View of the Sunsets - TripAdvisor

Traveling for work and I wanted a clear view of the sunset since I was traveling in winter from Chicago! Sailport's views are clear and beautiful! Decent pool, great beach fire pit and fishing pier. Brittany and front desk staff were extremely helpful with suggestions for dinning options. Nice 1 bedroom condo that was clean and comfortable. Would stay again!

Pre-Laser Spine Surgery - TripAdvisor

This is an older hotel that has made a great effort to update the suites. We checked in the day before surgery and were given a gift bag with snacks. Our one bedroom suite was perfectly adequate for our needs and featured a lovely view of the bay, especially from the balcony. The hotel offers the ideal location, close to the airport if needed and, for our purpose, only a 5 minute drive to the Surgery Clinic. They even offer limousine service if needed for surgical guests. Also, there is an excellent restaurant within walking distance, pre-surgery, of course. I would definitely recommend Sailport Waterfront Suites to anyone but especially if you are having surgery at the Laser Spine Clinic

Excellent!!! - TripAdvisor

Our first room was a stones throw from the front desk and the view wasn't that great. Without any trouble, Brittany moved us to a top floor room with a full bay view. We were so grateful and happy, and then she had us pick out a complimentary bottle of wine to enjoy on our first night as husband and wife. This put us over the top and made us feel like we really made a good choice for our honeymoon. Thank you Brittany at Sailport! Sincerely, Mr and Mrs Roberts

Nice Room with a Great View - Expedia

We stayed in a one bedroom suite for one night and were completely blown away with the quality of our stay. Our room was completely new- new carpet, furniture, fixtures, appliances, etc.. and the view was great. We overlooked the small beach areal and Tampa bay. We made great use of the beach area and fire pit during the breathtaking sunset, and again the next morning to lay out in the sun. We will definitely return to this hotel

Excellent Customer Service - TripAdvisor

Harry and the driver Micheal went above and beyond to make my stay a great! Harry took care of all my needs while I was on the property of Sailport. Micheal is a great driver with true compassion for all needs to help surgical guest to feel like they are in the best place to get healthy.

Excellent Stay - TripAdvisor

I am a repeat guest. Top notch establishment with friendly and upbeat staff. Every room is a bay view, clean, upgraded and worth every penny. Hard to find luxury at a unbelievably low rate! An underrated gem.

Great Location Basic Comfort - TripAdvisor

Condos are comfortable. Location is close to tampa but a world away for peace and quiet. We had a few minor issues with our condo and maintenance was very quick to respond. When we want a quiet affordable place to stay on the water, sailport is on our list.

Hidden Treasure of Tampa Bay - TripAdvisor

The staff was extremely friendly to my fiance and I. They ensured our accommodations exceeded our requests and the property is gorgeous, especially the bon fire pit on the beach surrounded by tiki torches. Can't wait until my next stay!

Family Fun - TripAdvisor

Spent a couple of nights here with my adult children before heading back up north via the Tampa airport. Very nice facility and the staff was wonderful! We had a nice view from our room, and there were restaurants and shopping close by. Stayed February 2014, traveled with family Sarah20092014 Bennington, Kansas
