The Gasparilla Inn & Club offers 66 elegantly appointed rooms and suites, as well as a grouping of 18 quaint, comfortable private cottages and villas that are fully equipped for families, reunions and wedding parties. The pet-friendly cottages and villas can be configured to one- to four-bedroom units (making the resort's total room tally 142). Crisp white linens paired with bright pillows and candy-colored fabrics accent rooms with charming white wooden furniture. Spring-green lattice-designed carpets are soft under bare feet after a long day on the beach. The pastel-hued palette sets the scene for an easy casual elegance. The smell also helps set the scene — you’ll likely get a whiff of a citrusy fragrance. The luxury hotel uses a light orange scent throughout to relax its guests.
The private cottages and villas, located a hop-skip across the street from the main inn, have a series of bedrooms, baths, kitchens, living rooms (some with fireplaces) and screened and lanai porches. They are great for families who need to sprawl out on vacation. Their Old World charm and simple grace are matched with technology and modern conveniences, including flat-screen televisions, wireless Internet, private temperature controls and comfortable Tempur-Pedic beds.
