Would highly recommend. Great location!
We love Bellwether, and this was our 2nd experience. We stayed a whole week. We like the fact there are multiple places to "hang out". This time we discovered Level 11, and really loved it. We like Bongos a lot, but unfortunately some of the locals hang out there who were drunk and lacked a bit of class. They were wearing t-shirts with hateful political messages. That was a real turnoff for us. But other than that we like the ambiance of it and being able to eat ON the beach under the palm trees. The entertainment was good later on in the day. We dined at Spinners twice, both at the bar as a last minute whim, and also made reservations for a table. Both times were excellent, both in service and quality of the meals. The hotel is centrally located within minutes of many places to eat.

We gad to call for our room to be cleaned twice both times poorly cleaned, pool was green customers had to complain before pool got cleaned, no microwave in the room, bad sewage smell almost our whole stay, for as much as we paid for 9 days we would expect at least free breakfast, our rooms view was advertised showing a ocean view bit when we got into our room it was over looking the pool from the balcony. Very limited choices at bongos restaurant for breakfast and lunch. All in all our stay was ok.

Dana was AMAZING!
This was our first visit to Bellwether, but because of Dana at the front desk, it won't be our last. He was welcoming, friendly, informative, and gracious, and got us into a lovely room, even though we showed up before check-in time. Being Boomers, we love the retro-1960's colors and decor, but being it's the 21st century, we also loved the fast WiFi, USB charging ports in the room, and big screen TV. And what a view of the Gulf and the beach!
