Equipped with a large gym, spa and contemporary, nautical-flavored furnishings, Opal Sands is certainly an attractive option for Clearwater travelers. The beauty doesn’t stop at this property’s architecture either: Clearwater Beach is but footsteps away. If you prefer a more predictable body of water, there’s a zero-entry pool, as well as a Gulf-front tiki bar with cocktails, beer and wine. A sun terrace, fire pits and on-site Italian restaurant round out the offerings. And don’t forget that all standard suites and rooms come with balconies— a feature past customers have singled out as especially spectacular.
