Off to Orlando in April 2019 and looking at a beach resort for 4/5 nights before returning back to UK. Can anyone give info about St Petes Beach and Clearwater - or if there is any other similar type beach resorts?
Travelling will be myself, DP, DS (15) and DD (5).
We have done the Keys before but really dont fancy that long drive again.
St Pete and Clearwater are both nice with decent restaurants and beaches. There are national parks to visit too. We stayed at the DonCesar in st Pete and it was worth every penny.. it looks bizarre but it’s charming!
I’ve stayed at the Marriot in Clearwater and the Hilton. Both really great but the best place we stayed was just down the coast at Treasure Island. We had a 2 bedroom apartment right on the beach. It was amazing and cheaper than Clearwater. Called Sunset Vista. Close to St John’s Pass. Google it.
Sorrel, you're right. Google shows 3 hours 45 mins from. Disneyworld to captiva with no stops. We went from. Kennedy which was 4.5 hours and we stopped en route. Tbh it was quite a nice drive through rural florida but I think pp wants something nearer
