Really nice accommodations and location. Staff very pleasant, informative and helpful. The only reason it gets a 4 instead of a 5 is the following:
1- They have 3 resorts all very close to each other and the Bayview Plaza is one tho not the one I was actually confirmed to stay in. I am sure they are all equal in amenities and with their "Stay at 1, use all 3" facilities policy it really makes no difference in which you stay.
I only wish I knew in advance that I had to check in at their main hotel 1 block up and across Gulf blvd. Then drive back and park at the one I was staying. It was really just a minor aggravation well mitigated by all the good of our stay. I would definitely stay here again and, in fact, look forward to doing so and have already recommended it to others.

- Completely renovated this year, Bayview Plaza Waterfront Resort is an award-winning European-style boutique waterfront resort situated directly on the Boca Ciega Bay. You can enjoy morning sunrises over the sparkling bay and then end your day with a breathtaking sunset on the beach, which is only 200 feet away. Bayview Plaza is small by design and is great for couples and families wanting to relax in an intimate resort. All rooms are spacious studio apartments with kitchenettes, some of which also have balconies with a full view of the bay. Best of all, we have NO surprise resort fees. Enjoy everything the Bayview Plaza has to offer at no additional cost. We really mean it: FREE Fitness Room, FREE Wireless Internet, FREE Parking, FREE BBQ Area, and FREE Private Fishing Pier, great for fishing or docking your boat. The fish are plentiful and often you'll find yourself staring at one of Florida's amazing creatures like the manatees and dolphins that frequent our resort. The pool also directly overlooks the Boca Ciega Bay and is perfect for cooling off while you soak up the sun. Our resort is Family Owned and Operated, and has been since 2002. The family is very active in the day to day operations, on property daily, and has a friendly staff ready to assist you with your authentic Florida vacation.

Everything is within walking distance: the grocery store, restaurants, and shopping are just across the street. The front desk staff is more than happy to help you find the many activities also available on the beach such as deep sea fishing, parasailing, jet skiing, dolphin cruises, sunset cruises and ferries available to visit the nearby islands.
