Beautiful Spot

Upon arrival the staff was very friendly and the hotel was beautiful. Our bay view room had a great view and even a few dolphins to serenade us during the night. The local bars can get a little loud but once you're in the room all is quiet. Only complaint was there wasn't enough parking when we returned later that night, but the staff was good about making a few parking exceptions to accommodate us. I would highly recommend Sailport.

Fun upbeat club within a short walk from the hotel. It can stay pretty loud though for those relaxing out on the room balcony.

cheap option in a beautiful spot

This is not a luxury hotel, but it provides great value in a lovely location. Each living room has a balcony on Tampa Bay. From ours, I watched schools of fish meander. The bedroom window was tiny and looked out on the rest of the hotel and the 2nd story walkway. The outside pool was lovely and a little sunbathing beach area was appreciated.

Bahama Breeze is a lovely restaurant nearby, on the water. It has a varied menu, great service, and the freshest shrimp I have had in a long time.

Good condo/hotel close to airport

Stayed at this hotel when visiting Tampa for a concert at Florida State Fairgrounds. Its very close to the airiport but yet not much aircraft noise. Its on the water and the rooms have a balcony overlooking the water with a view over the causeway to St. Petes. I understand the condos are all individually owned and then rented via the hotel so have different furniture but are a similar standard. I stayed at no. 266 which has two beds - the living area was set up as a bedroom and then there was a separate bedroom. It has a full kitchen with dishwasher. The bathroom was small but functional. Both beds were queen beds. It was a home from home so quite comfortable and ideal for a short stay. The price was good and the location can't be beaten as its close to everything. Not high end but good value for money and the staff were really friendly and helpful. Check in and out was a breeze and I would definately consider staying here again. We didn't use the pool but it was very popular with other guests and there were lots of birds on the water to watch from your balcony including pelicans.

Sailport Review

Upon arriving at Sailport found that the pool is small and the rooms need updating along with the couch. Only stayed one day so can't give a full review.

Tampa vacation

Excellent and easy accessible location. Nice clean rooms. View from balconies to the Old Tampa bay is outstanding. Security is great. The small kitchen arrangement allows for easy storage and reparation of meals. Good parking arrangements.
