Opal Sands’ curving glass façade means every one of the 230 guestrooms and suites has an ocean view over the glittering Gulf of Mexico. In the morning, wake up to freshly-brewed coffee and open up floor-to-ceiling doors on to your private balcony to let in the gentle sea breeze. Décor is stylish and contemporary, with soft, blue, and green accents against a neutral background creating a marine feel. Upgrade to a one or two-bedroom suite to get even more space with living and dining rooms.
In-room dining, laundry, and turndown services are offered, and the hotel’s concierge desk can help you make restaurant reservations or organize tours, excursions, and beach sport rentals for jet-skis, paddleboards, and kayaks.
Four restaurants and bars offer a range of dining choices at Opal Sands Resort, and all offer beautiful sea views.
Sea Guini – Enjoy freshly-caught fish and farm-to-table ingredients at this lively Italian restaurant with a chic, modern vibe. Choose classic pizzas and pastas or local specialties, including Gulf Coast shellfish stew and grilled hogfish, a south Florida signature dish.
Sea Guini Lounge – Let the bartender mix an Opal Orange or Florida Mule cocktail for you, and you can enjoy it with gorgeous ocean views from the outdoor terrace. If you are hungry, choose from a menu of antipasto and pizzas, but leave room for a decadent dessert — there’s tiramisu, gelato, and an American classic, Bananas Foster Cheesecake.
Sandbar – The vibrant Tiki Bar is an ideal place to stop by for a drink and unwind with friends on the sandy beach, right by the waves of the ocean. Cool down with a frozen cocktail or sample the food, which ranges from light salads to braised beef tacos.
Pool Bar – Recline poolside under the shade of a private cabana with food or drinks at the Pool Bar. Salads, including sandwiches, sweet treats, and delicious cocktails.
Laze by the hotel’s zero-entry, oceanfront pool in a cabana, or wander a few steps further to soak up the Florida sun on the white sand beach. The hotel’s concierge can organize watersports rentals for you and your family, including jet-skis, paddleboards, and kayaks — as well as bike rentals for land lovers. For some down time, visit the hotel’s spa for customized treatments in a calming setting, with everything from express manicures to dreamy, six-hour rituals and massages, scrubs, and facials. The modern fitness center has high-tech cardiovascular and strength-training equipment so you can get an effective workout.
Explore the local area, including shopping and nightly sunset celebrations at Pier 60 and watersports at Caladesi Island. Be sure to visit nearby Clearwater Marine Aquarium, home of the dolphin star of the movie Winter’s Tale.
