“Wonderful stay at the Sabal Palms Inn.”
Reviewed May 9, 2013

The Sabal Palms Inn is a small hotel in a quiet, residential neighborhood, right across the street from a wonderful beach. Just north of historic Pass-a-Grille. I believe there's only about a dozen units. We were in No. 9, which is a 1-bedroom efficiency with full kitchen and a sitting/dining area. Plenty of shaded picnic benches outside. Very friendly staff. We loved Pass-a-Grille and wouldn't think of staying anywhere else. We're looking forward to returning to the Sabal Palms Inn.

We spend 2 lovely days at the Sabal Palms Inn and my daughter was thrilled. She loved walking on the beach and collecting shells. She also enjoyed the pool and loved the lizards! She has requested that we come back next year and says she's prefer it to Disney! Thank you for a relaxing few days after a very busy conference for the mom as well. Will definitely be back!

We've just returned from our fourth annual visit to the Sabal Palms Inn in Passe-a-Grille, and made plans for visiting again next year. As usual, we really enjoyed our stay at Sabal Palms - relaxing and having meals on the veranda by our room, reading on the lounge chairs beside the pool when it was too hot for the beach (there's lovely shade there from the surrounding trees (palm trees and sea grapes).
The rooms are clean, spacious and comfortable, and cleaned daily with fresh towels supplied. Housekeeping supplies are readily available if you need anything extra. The rooms also include fully equipped kitchens - if you want to cook (if not, they're are a number of restaurants no more than three or four avenues away). The exterior of the building is also well-maintained including the pool area; even the gravel lane out back is raked, while the leaves are carefully removed from the public sidewalk....! There are bikes available to borrow, kayaks for rent, free parking, and low beach chairs to bring to the beach - which is just across the road.
All the staff are friendly, helpful and hard working - we particularly appreciate the warm welcome and attention given by Yudit and Eddie who on arrival greet us like old friends. They both go the extra mile to help everyone, offer advice on the area, and take time to chat and joke with guests. We're looking forward to returning to Passe-a-Grille and the Sabal Palms next year!

My husband and I really enjoyed staying at the Coconut Inn. The atmosphere had a B&B feel. We stayed in room 4 and had a view of the gulf and pool area as well as lounge chairs and patio set to sit on in a shared patio area with room 7. The room and bathroom are small but clean and updated. I believe there are bigger rooms so I would ask if that's important to you.The location of the hotel couldn't have been better. Close to everything and a minute walk to the beach. Pass a grille is a small quaint beach town that does not have night life. Gets pretty quiet by 10:00pm. Loved the heated pool especially this time of year when mornings and nights are a little cool and breezy. It was a great way to relax at the end of the day. Staff at the Coconut Inn was great and not invasive. Asked in passing if we needed anything. We would definitely recommend the Coconut Inn for couples.

If you are looking for a fancy place with lots of action,this is not the place. If you are looking for a quaint,clean laid back environment where you are close to the beach, and can walk or bike(provided) to lots of local shops etc. then this is the place for you. The staff, especially Yudit and Eddie(general manager) will go out of their way to accommodate you. This is was our fifth year in a row staying here and we love it!

Stayed just 1 night in upstairs room. Super clean, fully stocked kitchen, comfy, a lot of light, and we could walk to water and shops very easily. Didn't use tiny pool but it looked very clean. Ate breakfast outside at tables. Staff was super nice. Will definitely return! Passagrille is our fav beach spot...laid back, small, warm people, cute shops and seafood galor.

We have just returned from another fabulous week at Sabal Palms Inn. Each and every time we visit, GM Eddie goes out of his way to make our vacation the best that it can be. Our room is always IMPECCABLY clean, and the staff goes above and beyond the call of duty to assist all guests with anything they might need during their stay. We have stayed in many beachside hotels along the east coast and have yet to find one that has met the standards of Sabal Palms. Linens are always pure white and plentiful. Bedding and carpets are always clean and fresh with none of the mustiness often associated with seaside accomodations. Kitchen equipment in the efficiency is always clean and adequate for the amount of food prep most people want to do on vacation. While the building is not new, simple upgrades and a high level of maintenance makes the inn very comfortable. If you are looking for fancy, and want to fight the crowds, stay up the street at one of the huge hotels. If you want comfort combined with a great location and a warm, welcoming staff, stay at Sabal Palms. Thanks again Eddie, Yudit, Emiglio, Anna...and especially Joe....for creating this little piece of heaven on the beach in PAG!
