We stayed at a Sandals all inclusive in Antigua and Jamaica the last two years for spring break, so spring break 2013 we decided to be more economical and visit St. Pete Beach. The Plaza Beach Hotel is a renovated, family owned property that was a great choice...exactly as the Trip Advisor top ratings and photos indicated it would be. Front desk peope are fantastic, rooms are comfortable and clean, pool is great, and they don't allow adults under 27 to book a room so it was QUIET and not filled with a bunch of spring-break-wild-partying students. Highly advise booking room 216 upstairs oceanfront, if you're a couple used to resort-style hotels. We stayed 2 nights in room 202 and 7 nights in 216. Most rooms don't have view of the gulf. Beach is beautiful. Pool is excellent. Kitchen has full fridge, microwave, and 2-burner glass cooktop, but no oven. Bathrooms are small. If you're looking for a reasonably priced, quiet, clean, getaway, we'd not call this a resort...but it's a great 50's type motel with really comfy beds, exterior doors, and great service! We wanted to depart two days early because of the cool weather and Robert was very accommodating and gracious. Jackie, Kaitie and Luanne made several good recommendations. We walked 3 miles each day on asphalt across the hospital. Some reviewers complained about smokers. We don't smoke and had no problems with second hand smoke anywhere on the property. Everything is conviently close by...gym, groceries, restaurants, etc. We will book this property again on our next visit to St. Pete Beach.
