“14 nights in Florida”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

What a great place to stay. Lovely clean appartment with everything that we needed. The owners Colleen and John could not be more helpful. Beautiful courtyard where we sat outside to relax, read and have breakfast and tea. Great home made cakes and biscuits and very good breakfast each day.
Good position and the beach within walking distance. Highly recommend!

Room Tip: All rooms were good and we stayed in the ground floor appartment as we needed more room since our so...

Sabal Palm House stands out as a superior B & B. John and Colleen have every base covered from their warm welcome and outstanding food (we planned our day around breakfast and tea time!), to sharing their ideas of daily activities. The Renoir suite was quiet and the huge king bed ensured a good night's sleep. As we said our good-byes, Colleen presented home-made cookies for the flight home. We'll be back!

I wanted to surprise my wife on our anniversary so I booked two nights at this B&B. The place is only five miles from our house and it was more than our budget could afford but I thought she would really like it. Well we both loved the place and the service. The whole weekend was much more than we expected. It was our first visit there but won’t be the last. John and Coleen are wonderful hosts.

My wife and I spent 3 nights at this extraordinary B & B. The attention to detail was incredible - this B & B should serve as the standard of excellence for all other B & Bs. We thought the breakfast were truly gourmet and John should be congratulated on his cooking skills. The afternoon teas with delicious cookies and cakes were an unexpected treat. The rooms were spacious and comfortable with the private covered balconies a definite plus. It was also great to leave the car parked and be able to walk to the beach and into the town which has several good restaurants and a live theater. All in all our stay was a great pleasure and we will certainly stay at the Sabal Palm House next time we are in the area.

Room Tip: Our room was large and very comfortable - also spotlessly clean. All the rooms have photos in the we...

We stayed for the first time at Sabal Palm House in February 2012. Coleen and John were wonderful hosts - so we returned this February. We are glad we did. The ten days flew by. The breakfasts are very good and Coleen's varied ever renewed treats knocked us off any thought of dieting! But, as she said, "They're all made with healthful ingredients." The Sabal Palm House's friendly atmosphere, just-right size, comfortable rooms, and helpful but not intrusive hosts were hard to leave. We'll be back in 2014.

Although it doesn't look like much from the outside, the Sabal Palm House B&B is an awesome experience.

We stayed 2 nights, in the suite in the back of the property. Great location, incredible gourmet breakfasts, and reasonable rates.

John and Connie are quintessenntial B&B owners/operators. All the amenties you would expect, a very clean well appointed room, ice cold air conditioning, TV, WIFI, and an absolutely pristine environment.

Whenever we go back to South Florida, we'll be staying there from now on.

This is a very solid B&B in Lake Worth -- a town that is a little funky and a little fancy. The location is excellent: right on the intracoastal waterway, walking distance to the restaurants and shops, convenient to the beach, and 15 minutes from PBI.

The owners could not be more accommodating. Coffee/tea service starts early in the morning and thre is a stocked refrigerator of beverages that guests can access at any time. The breakfast is completely satisfactory -- not gourmet -- but good enough and is served in the lovely courtyard between the two buildings or in the dining room. The rooms are smallish, but again they are good enough. There are a few too many pieces of furniture in the rooms for my taste, but that's personal. Most important: there are comfortable chairs to sit in and the bathrooms are en suite. Biggest complaint about the room (the Norman Rockwell) is that the mattress is well past replacement time.

What would be nice? A rating between average and very good. That's where Sabal Palm House belongs.

Room Tip: Choose a room on the front with a view of the intracoastal: either the Norman Rockwell or the Dali...

Thank you so much for your comments. The comfort of our guests is extremely important to us. The mattress in our Rockwell Room is approximately four years old and it is a brand name, high quality pillow soft mattress. Although this is not an ultra firm mattress that you may prefer, our experience has shown us that our guests overwhelmingly perfer this type of mattress. We have asked guests who have stayed in this room since your stay about the matress and they have all indicated that they enjoyed a good night's sleep.

We are sorry that our breakfast the morning you were here was one of our very simple breakfasts-- fresh fruit, homemade muffins, scrambled eggs with cheddar cheese, sausage, and a hot croissant. We had many guests with dietary restrictions that morning, and they requested this type of breakfast.

We love our location and are very happy that you enjoyed it as well. Thank you for staying with us, and we hope to see you again here at the Sabal Palm House Bed and Breakfast.

Warm regards,
Colleen and John Rinaldi
