About Hyatt Regency Clearwater Beach Resort & Spa

Look at it from certain angles and you may as well be at a Mediterranean resort. Walk the beach and your mind goes to the Caribbean, but look at the numerous happy children engaged in group activities and you know that you're at a Hyatt Regency; in this case, the Hyatt Regency Clearwater Beach Resort and Spa.

The Hyatt Regency was one of the first major hotel chains to embrace children with Camp Hyatt, and the staff members goes out of their way to ensure children have a fun -- and safe -- vacation experience.

The 250-room hotel is the only waterfront Hyatt on Florida's west coast, and the calm, turquoise Gulf of Mexico waters, coupled with a soft, pristine, white sandy beach, make it a perfect family vacation or even a brief qetaway. In fact, we met several families who live in nearby Tampa and often come for a few days of R&R because they not only love the family-oriented hotel amenities, but also the spacious suites with gourmet kitchens.

"We come here maybe once every two months just to get away but still be close," a poolside Tampa mother told us. "It has all the great kid's activities of a hotel, but the homey feel of a condo. It's the best of both [worlds]. As soon as I walk into the lobby, I relax. And, I don't have to clean up like I would in a condo. We can cook, which saves money, and the refrigerator is big enough to put large wine bottles in, along with milk."

Clearwater Beach is a 3-mile-long, 3-block barrier island that offers a world-class beach, a wide variety of hotel and condo options, as well as the mandatory tourist t-shirt shops, dolphin-sighting cruises and restaurants that compete for the honor of having the best grouper sandwich. Thanks to a$30-million renovation in 2008, there is a delightful Beach Walk, a large palm tree lined walkway, which provides a safe and easy way to walk to activities and just enjoy being outdoors and people watching.

Unlike many other Florida resort areas, Clearwater Beach still has more of a small-town feel to it. High-rise condos do not overwhelm the beach and there are still family-owned hotels nestled next to the Hyatt. It's an eclectic atmosphere where groups of young adults walk into McDonald's only wearing their bathing suits, snowbirds have a cocktail on a restaurant patio and families juggle beach equipment.
