  • Bongos is always a great place to spend time while at the Bellwether resort. The drinks…

    Great experience

    First time at Bellwether (Grand Plaza). We stayed 4 nights, everything we needed seem to be in walking distance. Everyone we encounter were friendly and happy to help us. Convenient and Accommodating are words I would use to discribe our stay. Will definitely stay here again.

    Upon arrival to room there were quite a few things that were wrong,there wasn’t a microwave in the room as promised, the refrigerator wouldn’t open, and the phone didn’t work. I brought these issues to the attention of the front desk clerk, who immediately addressed them. Dana the front desk clerk was amazing, he went above and beyond to assist us. I would also say Hannah was prompt in returning our calls and addressing issues as well. The room was not what I expected, but the customer service was exceptional. We are planning another trip to St Pete beach soon, loved the location of the hotel which is directly on the beach, hopefully our next time would be better.

    Loved the Bellwether!

    The room was beautifully appointed and the facilities were great. It doesn't hurt that the Gulf beach is spectacular, and Cabana was included! The value for the amount paid is indisputable; other resorts charge so much more. The restaurants were open Christmas Eve and Christmas Day and the food was perfectly prepared and quickly served. We had a wonderful stay and will be back again.

    We typically stay at another resort down the street but decided to give this place a try. Our room was updated, spacious, and clean. The view was great. The hotel staff was friendly, however…when we went to Bongos on our last night that was the end of our great experience. We were seated promptly in the perfect spot to watch the sunset…and we waited and waited and waited to be served. It wasn’t terribly busy, tables around us were getting served…but the waitresses just looked at us and kept walking by. After waiting 25 min with absolutely no one acknowledging us, we got up and left. We walked by the hostess station to see 3 workers standing there chatting. We went right up to the front desk and told them about our experience. We were told someone would contact us….no one ever did. We have dined at this hotel several times at both Bongos and Spinners but have never had such a disappointing experience. The hotel itself was wonderful, we enjoyed all the amenities and choices for food…but being guests at this hotel we expected more. I would also like to note that every morning I went to get coffee and the poor gentleman was almost always working alone….but he was super friendly, efficient, and acknowledged his guests that were waiting.

    The beach was great, staff were nice but hotel condition was not. Pretty old and outdated. We were suppose to have ocean view but only had a small peek. Balcony broke door broke and would not open and was not fixed for 2 days. Room cards need rebooting after 1 use. They said it was because it was near phone or credit card. Sure.

    Loved the Property & Location

    We loved the Bellwether Resort! Our experience started before arrived. The concierge texted to offer assistance & it was so helpful arranging transfers from the airport, helping with room accommodations, etc. Total rockstar treatment. Great location. Easy beach access. Excellent beach service, easy to order drinks & get cold bottled water. The property is really bright & colorful. All of the bars were well staffed & very fun. Go to Spinners for dinner or at least check out the view - Stunning! Definitely going back!
