May 23, 2013 – Dunedin, FL – The Beso Del Sol Resort in Dunedin, Florida, has been voted “Best Boutique Resort” for 2013 by the readers of the Tampa Bay Magazine in its annual “Best of Tampa Bay” competition. This is the second consecutive year the resort has received this prestigious award.

Owned and managed by Global Connections, Inc. (GCI) and located north of Clearwater on the West Coast of Florida, the Beso Del Sol Resort features a mix of garden and Gulf-view studio units, as well as one- and two-bedroom condominiums. Amenities at the waterfront resort include two swimming pools, hot tub, waterfront sundeck, fitness center and private pier with deep-water boat slips, plus the Marker 8 Tiki Bar and Chef Johns Sunset Room, a 4,000-sq. ft. dual-level waterfront restaurant and venue for special events and corporate gatherings.

In announcing the award, the Tampa Bay Magazine commented that the Beso Del Sol Resort is “ideal for families and friends. Their Marker 8 Tiki Bar is always busiest at sunset, when Mother Nature puts on her light show.” Each year the magazine asks its readers to submit their votes for their favorite people and places in the Tampa Bay, St. Petersburg and Clearwater areas.

Commented Dave Dawson, VP of GCI, “We are extremely proud to once again be voted as the Best Boutique Resort in the Tampa Bay area. We consistently strive to offer our club members and local guests a fun, relaxing, and pleasurable experience and this accolade is evidence that our hard work is paying off.”
