Hyatt Regency Clearwater Beach Resort & Spa
On a west-coast peninsula with water on both sides, this 250-suite Hyatt (all units with kitchen, living room, and balcony) looks like a big, pink, tiered cake, serving up delicious togetherness. Stroll its beautiful broad beach on the Gulf of Mexico. Poolside, up on the eighth floor, private cabanas with their own bathroom, TV, and WiFi ($75 - $200 per day) are ideal for families spending all day outdoors; nearby is a fenced-in, 1-foot-deep kiddie pool. The SHOR restaurant specializes in scrumptious seafood, and a chef pur?es fruits and veggies for youngsters. Clearwater itself offers the picturesque Pier 60 Beach Walk, Clearwater Marine Aquarium (where they filmed Dolphin Tale), and rides on the Little Toot tugboat (LittleToot.US), which stirs up a wake that dolphins love to play in. Want a date night? The concierge can help you arrange in-room babysitting with a reliable outside agency.
Bonus for Baby Lug less on the plane with Hyatt's Babies Travel Lite service (BabiesTravelLite.com/Hyatt), which stocks more than 1,500 baby products (diapers, formula, sunscreen) that you pay for pre-trip and have delivered to your room upon check-in. Complimentary use of a crib or play yard.
