I have been visiting Sabal Palms Inn for a dozen years now and still find it the best place on the beach. It is very relaxing, clean, convenient and quiet. The staff is the best - Yudit, Emigdio, Eddie, Anna and Miguel take good care of the guests and keep the place immaculate. Breakfast on the balcony is the best but there are great restaurants in the area if you don't feel like cooking in the full-size kitchen or kitchenette. There are beach chairs and bikes for you to use during your stay and lots of places to explore. I would highly recommend Sabal Palms and the Coconut Inn to anyone heading to St. Pete's.
