Sandpearl Resort does not suffer from the hotel-dining blahs. It contains a nice poolside cafe and a coffee shop, but the major accomplishment is Caretta on the Gulf. Named for a species of loggerhead turtle, the restaurant has all the elements that make for success: sleek and knowledgeable service, a gorgeous beach view, stunning decor, plus tasty and fair-priced food and drink. A lovely raw bar near the restaurant entrance sets the tone: ceviche; oysters on the halfshell; spiny lobster and spicy tuna sushi rolls. Then the rosy glow and crackle of a wood burning oven sends out roasted fishes, chicken and meats that for the most part are paired with thoughtful, unusual side dishes and sauces.
