Just got back from another heavenly week at the Bay Palms. . . the weather was gorgeous and the hospitality of the staff was at its usual high level. For those of you trying to decide if you want to stay there - the best things I can say are that the property is spotless, the decor is modern and comfortable and the people will go out of their way to help you and make sure you're comfortable. Robert seems to always be around making sure things are OK (we found him one night straightening out the chairs on the deck, not something you'd necessarily expect from one of the "higher ups"), the housekeeping staff are polite and friendly (one of the girls made a point to tell us how much they appreciated us staying there) and the front desk staff could answer any question. Ample chairs on the huge deck if you want to spend some time tanning or fishing; outdoor bar-b-ques for guest use; pet friendly. Recycling is a big thing here, too. Our only (SLIGHT) disappointments on this trip were that we weren't able to book the room we stayed in last year and the quality of the bedding. As much time and money as the owners have put into decorating and modernizing the property, they need to do an upgrade on the bed linens - they seemed a little "thin" after sleeping on them for a few nights. This is really a place you'll want to come back to year after year - I know we do!
