Clearwater beach does not rat highly on the all-inclusive scale because properties here generally do not include drinks, meals, and things like beach sports in their activities.
But there are exceptions. One of the few resorts registered as all-inclusive on multiple platforms is the Sand Pearl. Fortunately it is also a pearl pf a resort for both families and adults alike.
Saying that, the resort is not all-inclusive in the sense that you might find all-inclusive resorts in the Caribbean or Mexico. However, what the resort offers with its packages as well as credits you receive with these will mean you will have to put your hands into your pockets to pay less during your stay.
For example, you can enjoy four nights and pay for three with the current package (on writing) and receive additional 'resort credit' to use at the outlets.
You would also do well to make a comparison with the best Florida All Inclusive Resorts.
And the nearby all-inclusive resorts to Clearwater are the Marco Island all-inclusive resort and the Naples Beach all Inclusive resort which are a couple of hours down the coast but also on the gulf side of Florida.
