We recently stayed in Unit #3 at Sabal Palms. Our unit faced the gulf. Sabal Palms is in a beautiful location, the room is nice and the staff is very friendly.
We would give Sabal a perfect rating if they would correct 3 things:
1) The bright lights outside the front window can't be turned off or at least turned down and the bright light shining into the unit thru the shades makes it hard to sleep.
2) They offer free bikes for use which is a nice feature, but half of them had flat tires.
3) The view from the deck in front of the unit is spectacular, but the railing is so high, you need to stand up to enjoy the view. They should either have a lower railing or have tables and chairs that are higher than the railing so you can sit and enjoy the view.
