This little resort is fantastic! It is clean and in a great location to cover the best of both sides of Florida. Bay fishing on one side and Beach on the other. We had a great time, meeting the owners and the guest's were fantastic also. I would highly reccomend this resort for a great vacation.

We just returned from our first Florida Vaction and we stayed at the Bay Palms... FABULOUS place... Loved having the bay on one side and the ocean on the other (usually I am an ocean front person). The kids totally enjoyed the bay and fishing .We did not see a manatee but it gives us something to look forward to... More

Arrived on 4/14 for a week long stay. Arrived early and was told the room was not ready understandably. Was told we could use the facilities and would be called when the room was ready. Sat by the pool and waited. Check in time was 3:00 pm. About 3:30 pm went to the front desk and asked if the room... More

We recently spent a month at the Bay Palms Waterfront Resort. It was our 15 year staying in the same apartment. During the past few years there have been many improvements both in the apartment and in the grounds that surround the resort. It is rare that we don't see one of the owners during the day and the housekeeping... More

My husband and I brought our family to stay at the Bay Palms Resort and the rooms were very clean and updated. The location was perfect it was near great restaurants and bars. The kids fished everyday and we swam in the pool. It was a beautiful stay. The first day we saw a manatee with her baby and she... More

We just returned from staying at Bay Palms the week of March 24-31st, 2012. Everything looks exactly like the pictures. We checked in at Plaza Beach Resort (their main resort 100 yards away). Check in was curtious, friendly and quick by Ingrid and Catrina. We would also stop in occasionally for information or directions to a local spot. The ladies... More

Another terrific stay at Bay Palms!! This was our second time here and again we loved it. I do have to agree on a previous comment about the bedding being thin. Looked like the bedspread and shams had seen better days. And the mattress wasn't all that great. But our room was kept very clean. We love it here and... More
