“Best place on any beach, anywhere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

We had a wonderful time this past weekend at Sabal Palms Inn at Pass a Grille Beach. The Inn itself is spotless, charming, well-tended, lovely and quiet. Our housekeepers, Yudith and her husband were beyond hospitable and caring. Just a charming gem. Can't wait to go back, the area is just as unique and quaint as it was 35 years ago when we got married in the area.

When we need a really relaxing time, Sabal Palms always comes up as the best solution for us. We know the place since many years and we will always come back to here and the beautiful beaches. Walking , public tennis courts, and public shuffleboard close by keep us pretty busy. The whirlpool/swimming pool is a great addition to the hotel and we look forward at the end of every day to relax in it. Yudit, Ed, and Eddie do a fantastic job maintaining the rooms and keep the property spotless. They are also there to be of service if we need anything. We have stayed in almost every room and this time we were downstairs where they have just done renovations. It was great. Very roomy, cozy , and clean. We will be back and look forward to seeing the staff again soon. Keep up the good work.

Sabal Palms is the best spot on Pass-A-Grille beach. We spent another New Years holiday with the Sabal Palms family. We were steps from the beach, restaurants, and relaxation. Eddie & ctew take perfect care of everything. We stayed in Unit 7 which has an awsome view of the Gulf from the large picture window. My favorite spot is the chairs at the front of the property for sunset. Will definitely be back again. Very clean spotless room with a full kitchen. Just perfect!!!

Room Tip: Unit 7 is private access with an excellent view.

Sabal Palms is a family owned and operated business. Joe and his friendly highly capable staff ( Yudit, Ed, Eddie and Anna) keep the place well maintained and clean. Each unit has a fully- equiped kitchen. The beach is across the street and we can watch the sunset from the front porch. We stay at the Sable twice a year and are often joined by other family members and look forward to our next visit.

Quiet, friendly, peaceful - can't ask for more.

My first return to Pass a Grille in 25 years. It was great to see the old place still "almost" the same. Many of the allys are now paved. The Hurricane is some HUGE building. And half of the houses have been replaced with new larger ones. This was my wife's first visit to Pass a Grille, and she LOVED it! Since we've been home on Hilton Head Island, she's been planning our next trip.
Part of her loving Pass a Grille was the Sabal Palms Inn. We had a great time there and will DEFINITELY stay again. Very homey. Clean. Respectful fellow guests. Quite and safe. What a wonderful find. From the time I made the reservation phone call to last locking of the door behind us on our way out, we had terrific service.

Room Tip: I gave our stay a 5 out of 5, but... take note, if your are real tall, make sure you dont stay in on...

I went with my family to florida and we came from key largo. We were all very tired and managed to find this hotel. It was quick, simple and reliving. In our beds in no time! It had a good wifi connection and a very nice style with a main room, kitchen, bathroom and 2 bedrooms with a sofabed. It was close to a ton of decent bars and restraunts and even had a relaxing spa and a hot tub with customer controlled timing. Friendly staff and very simple. Highly reccommended!
