This was our family’s tenth year to return to Rosemary Beach and our first year to stay at the glamorous Pearl Hotel at Rosemary Beach. As soon as we arrived the concierge greeted us with a glass of champagne.
We were nervous that The Pearl might not be as kid friendly but this was far from true…The Pearl was full of children of all ages and with access to all of the pools in Rosemary Beach, kids activities and bikes that made The Pearl a win for kids.
The modern amenities and conveniences of The Pearl made us come to the conclusion that we may continue to come back there instead of renting a house.
A wonderful perk of The Pearl is that beach chairs, umbrellas, towels, and lemonade are included with your stay. This was much easier compared to the Rosemary Beach chairs that make you do all the leg work.
Our family loved eating overlooking the Gulf of Mexico at the Havana Beach Bar & Grill. My Mom and I enjoyed classic cocktails that reminded me of something Ernest Hemingway might have. The piano player took requests from my children…Little Mermaid for my daughter and Charlie Brown for my son. The black-and-white photography sets the tone to make you feel like Hemingway might be over at the bar drinking a Mojito.
Spa Pearl is a tranquil spa by the sea. The staff pampers visitors like a mermaid…with the healing powers of the sea.
The 55-room gorgeous Pearl hotel is known for its handsome clock tower that gives Rosemary charm and old-world elegance. Downstairs, the large glass restaurant doors let in a beachy breeze that tickles your toes while a live piano player sets the mood.
The Pearl is a place for all ages to find fabulous food, cocktails, activities, relaxation, and romance. Views are breathtaking from every corner…the beach, village view or the pool view. We wondered…why had we not stayed in the Pearl before?
