During Spring Break, we found ourselves traveling to Clearwater Beach, FL.  This is consistently rated a Top Beach on TripAdvisor.  If you visit America’s top-rated beach, you have to stay on the beach, right?!  We were in serious need of relaxation and time to reconnect.  My husband and I both have demanding jobs – and we love them – but still need to be able to focus solely on family.  After TONS of research, I found Wyndham Grand Clearwater Beach Resort.

We did have another reason for selecting Clearwater Beach as our first destination for Spring Break – our oldest is obsessed with dolphins.  Ever since she saw Dolphin Tale, she has dreamed of meeting long-time residents of Clearwater Marine Aquarium, Winter and Hope.  The Wyndham Grand Clearwater Beach Resort offers a Winter the Dolphin themed room!  This was perfect!  Not only is the theming spot on, it includes two General Admission tickets to the Clearwater Marine Aquarium, two stuffed animals representing residents of CMA, two bottles of water, and a donation back to CMA.  Her reaction to the room was priceless!  It was the best way to start our vacation.

One of the most impressive parts of our stay was the “reconnected family experience” offered at the Resort.  Upon check-in, we found an in-room fort kit, adventure backpacks for each child, a flashlight for shadow puppets, s’mores pops, and a book!  There was also a lockbox for electronics!   This is one of the best campaigns I have ever seen from a Resort.  They even have an Instapix camera to use during your stay, free of charge!  The girls thought this was great.  Not only do we have great digital pictures to print, they have small keepsakes they took themselves.  Between the fort building, making shadow puppets, and ignoring technology, we were hard-pressed to enjoy the amenities of the Resort!

The outdoor heated pool was lots of fun, despite being 50 degrees!  The beach was beautiful but just too cold to enjoy and we had to make a child’s dream come true!  We will definitely be returning to the Wyndham Grand Clearwater Beach Resort for our next stay.  The staff, atmosphere, amenities, and accommodations were everything we needed – and more!  It was exceptionally hard to leave a Resort that exceeded our expectations for relaxation and reconnection.


I would love to help you plan a trip to experience the Wyndham Grand Clearwater Beach Resort.  My services are always complimentary!
