Came down with my 12 yr old daughter for a few days to relax and to visit my friend who lives in Largo. The Plaza Beach Resort was a nice small two story clean motel with beautiful nooks for seating areas and garden touches. Our accomodations included a King Bed (very comfortable), kitchenette and seating area, adequate storage for clothing, etc and a small bathroom with tub - shower. (bathrooms are efficient but may need some updating soon). Felt very spacious. It is a nice "mom and pop" place with friendly and helpful owners and employees (Robert, Rose and a few others I met made our trip wonderful). I prefer these places over the high rise hotels with the longest walk ever to pool and beach areas LOL. This place has a nice pool, BBQ area, shuffle board, life size chess game, and many areas to sit and relax and have a beverage. The beach is directly in front of the pool - a very short walk. Beautiful ! Across the street within walking distance are Walgreen's, Mobil gas station (with Dairy Queen inside), a bit further down is the plaza with Publix, CVS, liquor store, some shops and the Blue Fugu Japanese Restaurant (it is on the very far right in the plaza on 2nd floor). They have an early bird special (4pm to 6pm) for $15 pp for the Teppenyaki-Hibachi dinner. Well worth it and delicious ! I also sampled their sushimi and it was delicious and beautifully prepared. I had to take a picture LOL. If you are looking for clean, comfortable, relaxing place to stay with your family for a very modest price - this is THE place to stay. I met SEVERAL families and couples who have been coming to this place for many many years. It is nice to hear ! We will definitely be back with my whole family next time !
