Not what we were expecting ...
Overall, the hotel was okay. I don't particularly think it's at all worth the price we paid but it's likely the nicest hotel (or at least I thought) in St. Petersburg. The best part of the hotel was the white sandy beach that the resort backs up to. There are not really any shells to find but the water was warm and sand very soft. The clientele there seemed a little edgy too as we were definitely in the minority of those without tattoos which is fine but just wasn't something we were used to after staying at other resorts. The complimentary shuttle service up to town was nice - especially being able to pick up good lunch sandwiches at Publix vs another $75 mediocre meal at the Resort. We rented Jet Skis up north at "Fly-N-High" and that wasn't great either - kept getting stuck in the middle of the bay from MULTIPLE short areas filled with weeds ... save your money!!
