“A convenient, clean location across the street from the beach at Passe A Grille”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2010

My husband and I spent 4 nights at The Sabal Palms and enjoyed it very much! Our room - an efficiency (#1) was large and clean - everything you need. Loved it. Very clean. I noticed that the caretakers (Judit and Emigdio) were always raking, cleaning and chatting with the guests. Very friendly couple with good advice for restaurants. Our room was cleaned each day complete with washing the dishes! :-) There is a pool/jacuzzi which was nice though small. We enjoyed using the free bikes and pedaling around Passe A Grille. The bikes could use some work but were fun. Unfortunately, the railing on the front porch was so tall that you couldn't sit on the porch and see the ocean. A bar on the top rail to rest a coffee cup and tall chairs would have been nicer than the plastic chairs with no view. GREAT beach- across the street with a little restaurant beach side just a few blocks down. They had a band playing the Friday night we were there. Great fun. We are planning to return.

This was our fourth stay at Sabal Palms Inn. Once again our room was clean and ready when we arrived, Yudit made sure that we had everything that we needed. The staff at Sabal Palms Inn keep the rooms and grounds in excellent condition. We are looking forward to our next stay.

We were in St. Pete Beach for a wedding. The hotel is across the street from the beach. They have beach chairs and bikes for guests to borrow. Spent 3 nights here. Would stay here again on a future trip. Our housekeeper, Yudit, was very helpful. She was very happy to tell us all about the area.

I found Sabal Palms Inn and its sister, the Coconut Inn online, looking for room with kitchen in Pass-a Grill on St Pete Beach. The beachfront location and low off-season rates were attractive. We stayed 4 nights at Sabal Palms. We had a large room with 2 beds, kitchen and bath facing the courtyard. We could not have been happier. It was quiet, yet there were other guests. The weather, beach and water, were all beautiful.The two small inns are 2 short blocks apart and share bicycles, pools, and staff. Yudit and Emigdio were our hosts for much of our stay. They were friendly, helpful, and set the pleasant low key tone at Sabal Palms. Much of the time, guests are on their own, the office is closed, with staff available by phone. Yet we never felt neglected, quite the opposite. Pass-a Grill is a beach village perfect for a slow lane kind of off season vacation. Everything one might want can be right there. Looking forward to a return trip in May.

What can you say. We are hooked on the best kept secret in a little place called Pass-a-grille on St. Pete beach in Florida. The accomadations and staff that manage the property are second to none. Property managers Yudit and Emigdio made us feel very welcome and went out of their way to make sure our stay was enjoyable. My favorite was watching the great Florida sunsets since the room we stayed in was facing west. The rooms there are more comfortable verses fancy ( and very clean) with small kitchens for storing drinks and food if you like. They even have a gas grill for those days you would like to cook outside. The Sabal Palms is located within walking distance of some great resturants and we took full advantage of that . We felt very safe in this area day ro night and taking walks after the sun went down was never a problem. We will be returning and we cannot wait till we can put our feet into that sand on the beach again........

While the rooms were smaller than expected the price was right. Yudit and her husband Enigdio (Managers) were very friendly and work very hard at keeping the place as nice as could be. Location was right across the street from the beach-this street was not busy at all-just a small back street NOT Gulf Blvd. Pool was small but very clean and pool area kept nice. Very Quiet and eventhough we weren't the only ones there it felt like it. Close to alot of very good restaurants. We will return !!!!

We just returned from another stay at the Sabal Palms Inn. We have never had a bad stay there. We are from Philadelphia and started going there once a year but this year we went twice. The Inn and the town are very relaxing. Yuoit and Emigdio who maintain the place are always friendly and keep the place in great shape. Looking forward to returning in March.
