“Relaxing stay!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2010

We recently stayed at the Sabal Palms for a quick getaway before school started. We have stayed here before a few years back. It is just as nice as it was then. The location is great - Passe a Grille is a relaxed setting; no high-rises! The kids had fun at the beach and pools. Our room was very clean and grounds were too. Bikes and beach chairs are available for use. Staff is very accommodating. We also used the pool at Coconut Groves and the newest hotel for Joe is very nice too. It is a very unique place that I love!

We've stayed here in years past,always liked it - but this stay (more business than pleasure) was really excellent. The rooms on the Gulf are perfect.
The staff, Yudith and Emigilio, were so pleasant, so helpful,warmly welcoming, and very good at doing their job of keeping Sabal Palms spotless - inside and out! They clean, vac and bring new towels daily, always with a smile and the wish for a 'good day'!
(We had a chance to briefly meet Anna and Eddie who are also staff and they were quite welcoming as well).
We stayed in Room 1 ( not in this room before) for 6 nights and just loved it -- the view of the Gulf from the room as well as the porch is wonderful. Can't wait to come back!
Location is very desirable; we love Pass-A-Grille and Sabal Palms is perfectly located .
There are bikes, beach chairs, a small pool, and a gas grille and kitchens in each unit if you don't want to walk to the local restaurants.
We so enjoyed our stay -- thanks for suggesting Rm 1, Joe!!
Thanks again!

Spent our 34th wedding anniversary there and the owners were gone. The staff abused their privlages in their absence but as soon as owner found out he not only called me but he extended a sincere apology, offered to make things right and we will surely be returning thanks to his follow up. Looks like Sabal Palms will be our new home away from home whenever we visit the St Pete area.

Que bueno, Yudit is a sweetheart and this is such a nice, friendly place. I used to live here years ago in the cottage on what is now the museum. Pass-a-grille is a timeless place and staying at Sabal Palms is like coming back home. Can't put it any better! Anita & Jeff

We had a one night stay at Sabal Palms Inn with two six year old girls. They really enjoyed the little pool. The staff was very accommodating, especially when my granddaughter broke a table lamp! I was very embarrassed, but they just went and found another and said "don't worry about it!" The rooms are decorated with some vintage looking pieces so I was relieved that they were so relaxed about it. The hotel was built in the 1920's and had a look that was very unique. I found it quite charming. A word of warning, our room's ceilings were very low, so if you are over 6 feet, inquire about the ceilings in the room you need so you are not uncomfortable. The courtyard out of our back door was appealing and we wished that we had more time to spend at this pleasant place.

A week that was over all too soon. It was nice spending seven days on such a beautiful stretch of beach untainted by an excess of commercial activity. Being within walking distance of many good restaurants is also a bonus. Special thanks to the wonderful staff (Anna, Eddie, and Judith) who made every effort to ensure that everything was perfect. Looking for a quiet, uncrowded spot to relax and unwind? You found it.
