Great Place

I was in Tampa for medical treatment and stayed at the Sailport for 3 nights in June. Great place to stay and relax. Staff was friendly, polite and helpful during our entire stay.  They provided town car to take us to and from the Laser Spine Institute, wheelchair and waited to take me to room after procedure. Room was large, clean and comfortable with private deck and beautiful view of Tampa Bay. If we go back to Tampa area, we will stay there again.

Awesome Customer Service

Loved the bay view balcony, much appreciated! Even more so, I was grateful for the kindness and help from Jerry Brooks who helped me find restaurants that would cater to my diet preferences and need for wifi.

Absolutely Amazing

I absolutely loved this hotel and trip. The staff is so polite and helpful, including the drivers who are always striking up conversation while taking you where you want to go. They run from 7:00 AM in the morning to 11:00 PM at night. We had a room with a perfect view overlooking Tampa Bay and the sunsets were to die for. The restaurants around the hotel are great; the food was delicious and the atmosphere was wonderful. Check-in and check-out was a breeze and the room was beautiful. Will definitely come back to Sailport next time I'm in Tampa. The most relaxing and beautiful 4 days of my life!!

More Heaven

I once again found myself going to Tampa. This time I brought a dear friend along. I don't think she quite believed me when I told her of my first stay at Sailport. To make a long story short... the 7 days went by way too fast! She was so impressed at the quality of our stay and how it is conveniently located to attractions.  She was amazed how wonderfully treated we were by not only the staff but by everyone there. She loved the convenience of nice restaurants being so nearby and the ease of getting to them, that the hotel provided free shuttle service day and night. What more can I say, this is definitely 5 stars in my book and I will go back again and again! Terry T Auburn, NH Stayed March 2015, traveled with friends

If you want to feel at home!

The Sailport Waterfront Suites was a wonderful place to stay, and I would recommend it to anyone. The staff was kind and helpful in every way. The suite was clean and felt like being at home. One employee went above and beyond the call of duty every day and I would like to thank Todd. God Bless you! We will be back to Sailport as often as we can in the future.

So Welcoming

My husband and I stayed here after my surgery at Laser Spine. Everyone here was kind and helpful. The room was spacious and clean. The view was amazing. My hubby and I look forward to staying here again for a weekend get away.

Amazing Place

If you want security, a pool, manmade beach, a condo suite to die for and excellent customer service, this is the place in Tampa. We had an excellent bay view. We had appointments at the Laser Spine Institute which was only maybe a mile away. Staff was very helpful and always accommodating. Would love to come back and stay for pleasure!! Stayed May 2015, traveled with family.

Memorable stay. ...In a good way!!

The room and view! I could stop there as the best selling point, friendly and courteous staff is always a winner. The room was quaint with a 'home' feel. I regret not bringing anything to cook with the kitchenette. We were pleased to find a built-in stereo/cd player under the kitchen cabinets that added to the lounging area experience.  Would definitely return. Stayed June 2015, traveled as a couple.

Excellent Hotel and Location

Nice hotel with very spacious rooms. Every room has a water view and they are very big. The rooms have a full kitchen and separate living/dinning area. The balconies are a great addition especially if you are a smoker. The property has a security guard 24/7 and it is kept very clean. The pool was very nice and we were able to swim until very late. Their staff is great and were very accommodating. Will definitely be going back for those last minute get out of the house vacations. :-) Stayed June 2015, traveled with family.

Beautiful view of the Bay

My husband and I stayed here for my back surgery with Laser Spine Institute. Beautiful views and nice room. They also situated us close to the elevator so that I wouldn't have to walk that far. Friendly staff also. We will definitely come back to this hotel.

Awesome place to stay

Really enjoyed staying here. The view is beautiful from all the rooms, the pool was great, the little beach was perfect!!! We liked having the kitchen so we could stay in and enjoy the restful view, and the location was great to get to all the surrounding areas.

Great experience all around

I've lived in Clearwater, FL, right across the causeway for 10+ years now and hadn't heard about this place until this month. I must say I've been missing out!! Unique set-up, AWESOME STAFF, my dude Titus is a good man, and the property is absolutely beautiful!! Without a doubt I will be staying here much more often for my stay-cations! Hidden gem in my own backyard!

Great place

Beds were comfortable and the room was clean. Staff was very accommodating and friendly. Fishing was great, you can see the fish jumping out of the water. We will definitely return to this hotel again.

Love this place

I enjoy staying here because when I get off work it feels like I am going home. Love having the full kitchen to cook if I want and good restaurants are close by. Staff is always helpful and the rates are great.

Beautiful Views

There isn't a room on this property with a bad view. Extremely clean rooms and very helpful staff. Parking garage and elevators a nice convenience. Kitchens fully equipped and WiFi worked perfectly. Private balconies are spacious and provide the most beautiful sunsets. Swimming pool extremely relaxing and very well maintained. I would recommend this resort for families, couples and friends. Very centrally located for excursions in Tampa and trips to the beaches. Whether you are on vacation, staycation or business, you will be completely satisfied with this hotel.


Couple getaway. We seen Dolphins from the patio and the most beautiful sunsets. Everything was so convenient to get to and the trip across the causeway was very scenic. Definitely staying here again next time.

Perfect getaway

My husband and I stayed at Sailport for four nights in May and everything was perfect! Sufficient kitchen for breakfast, lunch and snacks. We did not cook there but it was fully equipped, and had all plates, cookware, and utensils. Bed was extremely comfy! Our room overlooked the little white sand beach with tiki huts, tiki torches and even a fire pit, and Old Tampa Bay. Sunsets were spectacular from the beach and our balcony. This is not a swimming beach. Just a little area to relax on an Adirondack chair, or even grill up some burgers and hotdogs, or maybe a game of volleyball! They also have a small pier for fishing! The pool was spacious and comfortable in every way. The location was perfect… We were able to easily get everywhere we needed to go. This little island has a lot going for it! We ate at the Rusty Pelican…pricey but delicious, for that special dinner out. Whiskey Joe's was a little more laid-back, with the whole beach vibe going on!! Oysters and CoronaRita... YUM!! We jumped on 60 W. and headed straight to Clearwater Beach, about 30 minutes from the resort. We also took in a movie at Ciné Bistro in Hyde Park, which was about 7 miles away. Again, location was perfect and easy to get everywhere. This was a perfect getaway and outstanding place to stay! So quiet and relaxing, yet minutes from anything you want to do!! When you add it all up, the suite, free parking, free Wi-Fi, location, cleanliness, beautiful views, room rate... It can't be beat! I haven't stopped telling our family and friends about this place and we will definitely stay there again, next time in Tampa! Thank you Sailport!!

Perfect set up

Beautiful Resort with the perfect set up. Every suite has a Waterfront View with a private and nice size deck. Our suite was extremely clean and updated. Seriously, after staying at Sailport Waterfront Suites, I'm not sure my husband and I will ever stay at a hotel again. Also, all the staff we met while there for two weeks were exceptionally nice and eager to please if needed. The grounds were always kept well groomed and cleaned on a daily basis. You will be lucky if you find a leaf on the ground there. I hope we get the chance to stay there again in the future.

The Stay was Great

The view of the bay was spectacular, the Room/Condo was very comfortable and a lot of space. We enjoyed every minute of our stay. The View from our balcony was breathtaking; the hotel beach area was so inviting and at night the torches, fire pit, watching the water was relaxing. I recommend Sailport if you are staying in Tampa. The price we paid for 5 days was very affordable.

Absolutely Wonderful :-D

The service was great, staff was friendly and helpful. The room AMAZING - private bedroom, full kitchen, nice living room w/ sleeper couch, balcony with gorgeous view for sunsets; we even saw dolphins swim by! We hooked up our phone to the "stereo" and played Pandora as we sat on the balcony. The room was quiet, we could not hear our neighbors. We look forward to visiting again!

Incredible Experience

This hotel suite was just like having your own apartment on the bay. Complete with a Master Bedroom (King Bed) and second bedroom (Queen bed). The suite also had a pullout couch. The suite had two full baths, full kitchen, and living room. There were three flat screen TVs. We watched a beautiful sunset from our balcony overlooking the bay. At night they had a fire with a circle of Adirondack chairs. The facility had a sand volleyball court, fishing poles, outside workout island, pier, pool, and a snack bar. The staff were very nice and the facility was very clean. I would recommend this facility for couples or families.

Nice Hotel Great Staff Not a Bad View Anywhere

Had a customer pick this hotel. Great hotel! They have their own fishing pier and the fishing was very good. Rusty Pelican right around the corner. Rocky Point is a very nice area. The rooms in the hotel are very nice and each one has a great view of the bay. Great staff and very helpful. I will stay here again. stayed May 2015, traveled on business

Boot Camp Vacation

I had a much needed four day vacation here right out of boot camp. The staff was welcoming and helpful. The view was great! The room was even better and very clean. Kinda had a small apartment like feel to it. Could cook and everything, which I loved. It was also pretty close to everything which is always a plus. The beach is cute for just sunbathing or relaxing, as you cant actually enter the water. Other than that this place is awesome and I would definitely stay again if ever visiting Tampa again, as I hope to!
