8/10 Very Good

Loved our weekend at St Pete Beach. Most of the staff was very friendly and helpful. The only drawback was our initial entry. The bellmen did not even bother to look up and acknowledge us as we entered the resort. We went in and out over the next 20 minutes and they still did not say a word to us. They were too busy talking to each other or looking at their phones. Luckily the rest of the stay was pleasant.

All great, but the pool was in awful state
Staff was great, super friendly and helpful! Room was clean, and bed was comfortable. Bathroom remodeled and modern. The building is old and hallways smell musty from humidity, but the room does not feel that way at all. My one and biggest disappointment was that even though the pool was "open" the water was cloudy and green. No one was ever in it, my teenage son was really sad that his only water option was the beach. Neighboring pools we could see from our balcony were blue and full of guests having a blast. So sad.

Most relaxing vaca ever!
We enjoyed being right next to the beach in a clean and friendly hotel. The service was top notch and we will be vacationing with the Bellwether again. Bongos was a great plus for dining without having to drive anywhere. We have never relaxed more!

First Time Visiting the Bellwether
All the staff at the property were friendly and helpful. This was a end of the school year/start of the summer trip for us. Brunch was great at the revolving restaurant, Bongos was fun, and the beach service included in the resort fee made the trip much more enjoyable. We have never stayed at the Bellwether but had seen it on prior trips. The property was recently renovated and the common areas & rooms were well done and comfortable. I would suggest its time to change the mattress or at least the ones in Room 201 - they weren't the most comfortable. Otherwise we enjoyed our time. We would recommend it to anyone looking for a great place on the beach and we hope to stay again.

Bellwether Stay
The room was nice, great view and the workers were very friendly. The pool is very small and not enough chairs around the pool and the bar area needs an update. The rooftop bar was very nice but needs more food options on the menu.

Great couples getaway
Great hotel for a couples getaway! Our room was clean, partial ocean view room had beautiful sunsets and beach views. Loved the live music from the hotel restaurant and the restaurant next door every night. Room was clean, lobby and hotel areas well maintained. Pool was small but clean. Gorgeous beach offered cabanas, umbrellas and lounge chairs with drink service in the afternoon. On-site bars and restaurants were a nice option and location was walkable to many other options as well as grocery. Staff was friendly for the most part and parking was convenient. Concierge Geoffrey was fantastic!
