After a week of searching for a place to stay close to Fort DeSoto I received an email from the staff at Sabal Palms stating that they had a unit become available. I was impressed that they had held onto my original email and contacted me when they had a cancellation. We stayed in unit 5 and were very pleased with the accomodations. We had a pool and gulf view. We, at the last minute, had an additional 2 guests stay with us as my husband's parents decided to stay overnight. The room was able to accomodate all 7 of us. We put his parents in the bed in the bedroom, one child in the twin fold out couch in the bedroom, my husband and I took the full size fold out in the living room area, and we put the two small children on an air mattress in the floor. I say all that so that you have an idea of the space of the unit. It is really like a small apartment! It was really nice having the bathroom and bedroom separated from the living area.
When I booked the room I had concern over the pool size. However, the fact that it turned out to be a heated jacuzzi pool (you can turn the jacuzzi part off if you want) made it soooo nice! I personally had never been in a full size jacuzzi pool, only a regular jacuzzi. It was really nice. My only complaint is that it was hard to figure out how to turn the shower on, and that was nothing major or anything I didn't figure out (you pull down the metal part of the spout)!
The rooms were EXTREMELY clean, cleaner than any hotel we've stayed in. My mother-in-law cleaned hospitals for a living and she instantly noticed the clean smell when walking in. That's big coming from someone who cleaned for a living!!! To boot, we accidentally took one of their extra pillows (we had taken our own as we normally do). When I called the next day to tell them, the staff went out of their way to work out the pillow issue! ;-)
Overall, I would highly recommend this resort! The staff is nice and the place is clean in a prime location!
