“A lovely quiet place to relax”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2009

Staying at the Bay Palms Resort has been a win-win situation for me. Close to all amenities, and the beach, yet not noisy at the same time and with a view on a nice lagoon. The room was clean and well stocked with all necessities. The wi-fi worked flawessly, and the staff was great. Also a great suprise and bonus (for me) was that the resort is located near a great bakery and cafè called Casa Del Pane, and it was easy for me to just walk 20 yards each morning and enjoy a fantastic continental breakfast .
I definitely recommend to anybody else to stay over at the Bay Palms

We stayed in November 2008, however I am just getting around to posting my feedback now. We spent 8 nights at the Bay Palms Resort on St Pete Beach. Our room was clean and it looked like they were in the process of improving the property. The pool was just reopened 2 days before we got there after a complete renovation, and new pavers around the hotel were being installed. The location was great, all the restaurants and grocery store was in walking distance. There is no Starbucks on the beach, however the bakery next door was perfect for my morning coffee and pastries. This is a very nice, clean, simple property and a very affordable price that is on St Pete Beach.

We went down to Florida to find a place to stay along the Gulf coast and just happened to end up at this resort. We are so happy that we did! It is right across the street from miles of white sandy beaches that we walked often. It has a big deck at the back as well as a pool which overlook Boca Ciega Bay. While sitting on the deck, we saw flying fish, a small manta swim by and a dolphin that swam around nearby. It was amazing! If you like to fish, you can do that from the deck. The place was very comfortable and clean. The management was both friendly and helpful. It is in walking distance of a grocery store, a small mall, a drugstore and restaurants.

We just needed a quick getaway from Atlanta so decided to drive south. We ended up on St Pete Beach and drove around looking for a hotel. We ended up at the Bay Palms waterfront resort, and were very pleased. It is actually a small resort with not much road appeal, however on the inside it has everything you need. First off, it was very quiet, with very few people because there are very few rooms, maybe 12-15 rooms max. There was a pool overlooking the water, a very large pier to relax or fish from, wireless internet, use of fitness room, and just across from the beach and walking distance to everything. We had a one bedroom with a queen bed and a separate living room with sofa and full kitchen. The room was clean, the service was good, and the beach was beautiful, much better than Panama City were we normally go.
We will keep this place in mind for future stays, it was also better on my wallet than what I normally pay in Panama City.
