March 24, 2018 Rebbecca Marino

Wesley Chapel is an unincorporated census-designated place in Pasco County, Florida, United States. It is part of the Tampa Bay Area metro. The population was 44,092 at the 2010 census. In 2003, some residents of Wesley Chapel started a movement to incorporate the community (including areas not in the official CDP). This "city," which would have been the largest and most populous in Pasco County, never materialized.

Tampa Premium Outlets

Reviewed By Islandmomma4ever - Texas

If you're visiting Tampa, then look closely to the time it will take to get to this outlet mall depending on where you're staying. For me, it seemed like it took forever.

We always seem to go to an outlet mall while traveling and this is one of the nicest I have seen. The water and all the seating is very impressive and a nice place to just sit and wait on someone or to take a break. It was so nice.

As for outlets. People always expect things to be significantly less. There are some bargains to be had and usually on out of season merchandise but every mall has that too. A lot of the merchandise is made especially for the outlet stores and is not the same as what you would find in a regular mall so therefore you can't really compare prices. Some of the outlet merchandise is made of a lower quality or has small imperfections not usually that noticeable. I think people go expecting to get good deals, and sometimes you do but you can also get deals at regular malls so it simply comes down to your preference. I go because I prefer to shop outdoors weather permitting.

What I loved the most, was that fresh squeezed lemonade place. I got a strawberry lemonade on the way to the car and wished I gotten a large! We also loved the selection at the Flip Flop Shop, they don't have these everywhere.

Go on a pretty day and just enjoy! Thank you for your helpful vote if you found anything in my review to be helpful.

The leading canoe outfitter on the Hillsborough River offers trips anywhere from two hours to all day long.

Reviewed By The_Hailes - Tampa, Florida

Having grown up in Tampa I had a healthy fear of the Alligators on the Hillsborough River and always shied away from being in a canoe or kayak on the river. So glad, my husband challenged my fear and we headed out on Black Thursday for a kayak trip. The river was quiet on an overcast day. The outpost staff were super friendly and helpful. we will be back.

Such a great shop. Jack Boyle has owned this place for 37 years and has pieces throughout America in high end galleries and corporate art installations and we have him here in our back yard! You can stop in most any time and watch as he or another potter is busy creating something or browse through the gift shop/gallery. There are pieces for every budget, from a few dollars to one of a kind collectors pieces. Classes are always being offered as well. It's a pretty awesome place that our area is beyond lucky to have.

Harry Hopman/Saddlebrook International Tennis

Reviewed By FSOlson - Nashville, Tennessee

In twenty years of resort & business travel, I have never witnessed a greater inability to deliver customer service as I have had during the past two days of my stay at Saddlebrook - from airport pick-up, tennis program administration, room service and customer complaints. Please find below a brief summary of the events that have left me wondering why I ever chose to attend this resort/program.

Airport Pick-Up – I was told that my private driver would be waiting for me in baggage claim upon my arrival. He was not there and there was no message on my cell phone. Thirty minutes later I call and am told that he was waiting in the pick-up area. Then a shuttle driver shows up and I spend 45 minutes in traffic in an uncomfortable shuttle… when I should have been relaxing in the back of my private car on my way to a restful and terrific vacation. My problem with the above stems from any accountability for the information provided and the dubious excuse of whether or not my car was ever at the airport or ready to pick me up.

Tennis Check-In – When trying to check-in to the Adult Tennis Program there was absolutely no-one on premises who could confirm the basic question of when the program started or where we should check-in. The Hopman office had been closed at 5pm and had we known we would have been here earlier to get the required information. The clerk behind the tennis center desk didn’t have any consistent information, had no knowledge of the brochure information we did have and could not reach anyone to answer our questions. Doing the right thing, she took our cell phone numbers and said that someone would call us prior to the start of the program. They did not.

Tennis Program Administration – Harry Hopman would be disgraced. There is a deplorable lack of consistency, knowledge and instructor skill set from court to court. I went from a court where I got no instruction other than (“You should get up to the short ball”) to a court where I had a great instructor but was paired with a beginner and 4.0 player who could not keep up with my level of play. Various other guests had the same or similar commentary about the professionalism and organization of the program. My least favorite quote was “My instructor told me that since I was only here for a couple of days it wasn’t worth trying to change my strokes.”

An hour after our start time had been rained out, I received a call in my room saying that there would be a lecture instead. That is a piece of information that would have been helpful…… if it had been provided at the end of the morning session – “We have a good chance of rain this afternoon and will be having a lecture instead if you would like to attend.” As it was, it was too late and alternatives had been chosen and acted upon. While in reality, you have several knowledgeable and credible tennis instructors, your program from end to end has to be one of the most deplorable in the industry.

Room Service - At approximately 5pm my doorbell rang and was immediately opened. I abruptly woke up and had them halt at the door, finally getting the message that it was room service wanting to pick-up my tray. Since when does staff need to enter a customer’s room mid-day for a tray? Since when does staff enter a room without announcing who they are?

Customer Complaints - while Shawn was notified of both the transportation and room service issue, he has yet to give any acknowledgement of the impact any of this has had on my personally. “I am sorry” said without any kind of empathy or caring for your client means absolutely nothing. For someone left in charge as the acting Manager, he displays a remarkable inability to respond to or alleviate customer concerns. If you intend to provide excellent service, then my recommendation is start by hiring people who understand the term, are concerned about delivering it and have the skills to communicate it.

I can’t even begin to express how disappointed I am with what is supposed to be one of the top tennis resorts in the world.

Hillsborough River State Park

Experience the Florida wilderness just outside of Tampa.

Reviewed By Annette M

I’ve lived in the Tampa Bay Area my entire life and I’d never before been to this park until we camped there in our travel trailer just before Thanksgiving. I loved taking a long walk on the trail that runs along the river and seeing the suspension bridge. The park also has a huge picnic area and one of the largest swimming pools I’ve ever seen. (The pool was closed for the season while we were there.) My only criticism is that the bicycle, surrey and golf cart rentals are quite pricey. But that’s really a minor complaint. If you’re camping there for several days, I recommend bringing a bicycle.

Reviewed By sun_n_fun_mom - Tampa, Florida

The food is good and service is hit or miss. They allow smoking on the main deck just outside the entrance, so they usually banish non-smokers behind the building or farther from stage area so you can't enjoy the entertainment. I'm not sure how they know you're a non-smoker (they don't ask),but I think they can tell the smokers by their aged skin and raspy voices. Or maybe their regulars. Anyway, decent prices. Good local stuff.
