While this hotel is nothing fancy, it includes a lot of the amenities that other hotels do not. From beach chairs, pool toys, shuffleboard and corn hole games, mini golf...there are a lot of fun things to go. The location of the hotel was great too! Right on the beach, close to restaurants and within walking distance to Publix for grocery shopping.
The only hitch we had was making the reservation. We were there during spring break so there was a minimum of 3 nights to stay but we only needed two nights. The online system let us reserve two nights but then we received a call to say they wouldn't honor that reservation and we had to go to three nights; which we did not have. We negotiated for a higher rate to just stay two nights but I still didn't think that was fair considering the online system let me confirm a two night reservation. The two systems need to talk.

Kim,

Thanks for a great Five Star review of your stay at the Plaza Beach Hotel – Beachfront Resort. I’m happy you enjoyed our amenities and location. Our website does not take guaranteed reservations, but denotes that is a request only and we will contact you to confirm your stay. We did have a three night minimum during Spring Break, however we were able to put you into another room type that did have a two night gap fitting your exact dates. There is a disclaimer that it is just a request and not an actual booking in the online system and then an email is sent specifying this as well. I apologize if there was any confusion, but I’m glad you were able to stay with us after all. I hope to see you again for another ideal family trip!

My family has been going to the plaza beach every year since I was a child, I am now 34. The reason we go back every year is because of Robert and his wonderful staff along with the great hotel. The rooms are a nice size, we fit our family of five very comfortably. They are kept very clean, room service comes by daily to check on them and freshen them up if you need it. The hotel sits right on the beach which is nice when you want a change of scenery from the pool. Through the years of going to the plaza beach we always look forward to seeing the changes Robert makes to the hotel. If you are looking for a clean family friendly hotel that sits right on tge beach I would highly recommend this little slice of heaven. Thank you Robert and staff for once again making our family vacation memorable.

Was expecting a lot more especially with all the wonderful reviews. Room was mediocre at best with fridge and kitchen table. Small bathroom, no maid service on Sundays. Really advertise you to write positive reviews thus the number of reviews. Think I could have done better for $170 a night. Location is the only plus I can say for this price range.

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. I’m sorry that you did not have an excellent experience here like the majority of our guests. Our rooms are newly renovated and do feature kitchenettes, which many appreciate as a money saver. Our bathrooms are small, as is indicative of being originally built in the 50’s, and there’s not much we can do about the size, but they have been beautifully updated. We do not offer maid service on Sunday, however any needs can be addressed at the front desk such as towels, soap, etc. I’m not sure what you were looking for that we did not offer, but I would welcome you back anytime for another visit to truly see what everyone else is raving about.

My family and I just returned from a 10 day fun in the sun vacation. We had a wonderful time and loved the Hotel. Plaza Beach is a wonderful family owned hotel that is clean, friendly and relaxing. I have been visiting Plaza Beach for 20+ years and they continue to up date and change yearly to create comfort for their guests. I would recommend to all.

Room Tip: Rooms on the court yard side are quieter and not located on the parking lot side.

Great family place!!! This is our second year with a third reserved. With a family of 6 -kids ranging from 2-18 we need a place we can all enjoy and Plaza Beach is perfect. The pool is practically right outside your door (completely gated btw) and warm,, great for the little ones with plenty of seats to sun in. The beach is just steps from the pool area with lots of different style chairs and hammocks for lounging in. There were pool toys,towels,chairs and sand toys available. For even more fun you can play shuffle-board, corn-toss, or play on an oversize chess board, and there is a mini-golf too! Our room had a mini kitchen with a good size fridge with a grocery across the street.. and for those who eat out, there is good food all around the Plaza Beach.OH!! and for those who like it there is a social/happy hour and in the morning fresh coffee in the Internet cafe' -located next to the office. Pssst mums and dads-check the brochures in the cafe' we found LOTS of b1g1 coupons and discounts!! Enjoy!!

Room Tip: I would say there are only a couple not great spots one right under the stairs in the front of the h...

The Plaza Beach Hotel is a very family friendly hotel with playing facilities like mini golf, shuffle, chess,etc. There are also a lot of picnic tables outside where you can spend some time in the shadow. The beach and the water there is beautiful,but the free beach chairs of the hotel aren't located directly at the water, but still on the beach itself. The pool is not very big, but not too small either. The room was large with a small kitchen, a fridge and eating table and a 'living room' corner. In addition, there is free Wifi. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Everyday in the afternoon the hotel offered some free welcome-drinks at 4pm. The hotel is located next to a smaller shopping mall with a large Publix-supermarket and some restaurants. I can definitely recommend that hotel.
