Super fun kitschy beachside motel. Very friendly staff. Comfortable rooms. Right by the beach with full access to fun activities. Good value. Great for families with kids as there are lots of activities and a beachside pool.

Hotel's Favorite
The Plaza Beach Hotel was phenomenal! Our families all came to the resort to be with each other on Christmas. My husband and I had planned a very small wedding on the beach in front of the resort. We met Sheldon (resort manager) on Christmas eve and fell for his entertaining personality. He was able to pull some strings for us and helped us with our dream wedding. Santa was able to officiate our wedding on the beach during the sunset because of Shledon. It was so perfect and more than we could ever imagine thanks to Sheldon and his amazing staff. Everyone at this resort makes you feel like family! We have made forever friends from all over the country and unforgettable memories. Thank you Sheldon, Gabriella, and plaza staff. This was the best week of our lives visiting here. We will be back again next year!

My friend and I stayed here for a quick trip and had an amazing experience! The Resort is right on the water, quick access to everything, and the staff was very welcoming. They were able to answer questions about the area and was able to help us figure out the itinerary of our stay. It was great to see in the rooms that the resort is environmentally friendly!!!! The vibes, crew, the experience overall was amazing and will return again in the future. Thank you again to the crew Alex, Gabriela, Tyrell, Anna and Sheldon.

Thank you so much for a wonderful stay and to Gabriela for helping me figure out where everything was and where to go for food and drinks around the area. I will be back soon!

Where do I begin! This has been a dream vacation from start to finish compliments of Plaza Beach Resort. It all began the evening prior to my check in when I got a personal call from Alex confirming my accommodations prior to my arrival. I have never had a personal touch such as this. He told me check in was at 4 but they have a tiki bar and games to play in addition to their beach front with accompanying pool. Upon checking, I loved the decorations. It was like I stepped in a time machine to the 1950’s. Their lobby is decorated so adorable. Their penny bathroom was so cool! When I got into our room(211) I was in absolute admiration. The decor was absolutely lovely and so spacious along with the full fridge/freezer and ability to cook on the stovetop and heat food easily. Throughout my stay I received personalized texts from the staff(The only other place I’ve had this personal experience is the Lowes Hotels in Orlando) ensuring my stay was perfect and that they were there if I had any questions. I love how eco-friendly and fun the resort is. I wish I could’ve taken home the orange scented soap, it was so fresh and delicious smelling. They have a smart TV and I was able to sync my Netflix and watch my favorite show. We loved the close proximity to the beach and my son loved the dolphin water feature at the pool. Theres cabanas and umbrella chairs you can rent outside of their volley ball netted area and tiki bar. Fun for all ages! The beds were extremely comfortable and the ice cold AC and fan helped me relax after a hot day by the beach. I could not hear a peep from any of the other rooms. Nika, the most beautiful and kind woman in the world, checked me out. She added a personal touch to my already 10/10 stay. She is so warm and friendly. The Plaza is so lucky to have her to make this impression on their guests. She was the cherry on top. Totally recommend this resort!!! Close in proximity and a short walk to everything you could possibly need- publix, chick fa la, caddys, crabby bills, spinner’s rooftop grille to name a few. I will be back for sure highly recommend!!

Sheldon and his team went above and beyond to make our team building event a great success. They provided free parking across the street and gave us a special happy hour for our beach clean-up and volleyball event. It's a classic Florida beach joint. WE WILL COME BACK SOON!

So much fun at the Plaza Beach Resort. Staff is amazing, friendly and always welcoming us home. Pool and beach are steps from your room. GM Sheldon is awesome and whatever you need he is there. Cold beers on the beach at amazing Chris Beach Bar! Book now, rooms sell out fast!

Not your ordinary hotel. Retro 50's with summer surfer decor. Outstanding service which is rare to find. Nice pool 3-6 foot. Free beer and wine happy hour 4-5 for adults. Connect 4, ping pong, fuzzball, mini golf, cornhole for all. Keeps the kids happy and parents engaged too. Grocery and liquor store walkable. Nice for couples or families. Highly recommend

Beachfront resort at its finest from booking to checking in and the extra touches that are provided at this unique spot. Nika and Sheldon are top notch in their field. Welcomed in at the front desk where the décor is so retro and cool by a friendly and helpful staff. You just know you are going to have a great time. From there it only got better. The room was spotless, spacious and there is everything you need for your stay. We brought plenty for the fridge but didn't need it. Chris's Tiki Bar was the perfect spot after a few hours on the pristine beach. Chris will make you feel right at home with his warm personality and cold Rum Runners. You won't be disappointed. If that isn't enough, they offer a happy hour in the lobby with free beer and wine. The pool has plenty of space with loungers abound and a dolphin water fountain. There are also some activities to have fun with like Volleyball, shuffleboard, giant chess, etc. Everything you need is close to Plaza Beach from restaurants, bars, stores, boat tours and more. We can't wait to go back!
