Pros and cons... A review of Safety Harbor Resort and Spa
I'll repeat some of the finer points mentioned in the other reviews... Safety Harbor Resort and Spa has been there for a while, and is sorely in need of updates in several areas. The rooms are indeed humid, the air conditioners are noisy, the bathroom fixtures are probably on the order of 40 years old. The place is clean, but looking a bit tired. The landscaping around the pool area is a bit underdone. The "hammock park" has one hammock that I could find. On the positive side, the staff is friendly and helpful. The spa facilities are nice. All the water used comes from the five natural springs on the property, so there's no need for chlorine in the pools, jacuzzis, or the steambath. The biggest advantage of the place is its location. If you stay at Clearwater Beach, you'll find that the hotels there are shoehorned together on the waterfront, along with restaurants, bars, and the standard miniature golf/t-shirt shop type of establishments. The Spa is located on the bay side of town, out of the way. If you're looking for a quiet vacation, this is a good spot for it. Overall, not a stellar property, but not bad.
