“A Great palce for extended Family come for Eckerd Graduation”
Reviewed 13 June 2011

Reasonable rates, A-1 location, and laid back and friendly staff and ambiance, found at a Sabal Palms during an October 2010 scouting trip had us returning to occupy 5 rooms for Eckerd Graduation May 19-23, 2011 Now we're looking for another excuse to come. Must-do's locally: Dali museum, sunset cruises, and whatever makes you happy. Easy to cook, and/or eat modestly, and get around with minimal car use. Beach and water were both warm and quiet and offered great swimming in both fall and spring. Beach weddings are common and fun to watch as you sunbathe. Next visit planning to try fishing. Yudit and the gang are gracious and professional caretakers. Can't wait to go back, though next family event may be in Oregon... Cynthia and Family, East and West.

What a perfect getaway for us. We are used to staying at large resorts and enjoyed this so much more. It is quicker to cross the street and be on a magnificent beach than to take the elevator...blah,blah, blah. The room was so clean and the staff beyond friendly. It is like a home away from home. We are already planning our return trip in a few months. Eddie and Judit were so helpful and friendly. What a great staff! There are no words to describe the peaceful beach and the beautiful sunsets.

Room Tip: book as far ahead as possible.

First, but definetily not last time we will stay here! Had a cute room directly across from the beach. Just a few steps to the beach where we shared a bench and pleasant conversation with a local couple while we watch a beautiful sunset! The kitchen was sufficient, we used the Inn's grill to cook steaks from the local deli. Only complaint is the somewhat noisey A/C unit which we just turned off at night. Anna was very nice and gracious helping us get settled in. Paradise Grill is our favorite breakfast spot, can't beat breakfast on the beach. We love the quietness of the Pass-A-Grille location with the beautiful beach and charter fishing right outisde your door. Thanks for a great stay!

Sabal Palms Inn – Easter Week vacation

Pros – Bikes & Beach Chairs a BIG plus, Very clean, maid service daily, location – just a walk across the street is the beach, low key area of the beach is very pretty, close to good eating, kitchen was handy.

Cons – Chairs on front porch are too low to see the ocean view, your view is blocked by the porch railing, you see the street below the rail and the sky above the porch railing! No interior decorating. Very stark – not even a picture on the walls – our unit colors were black and white. No shampoo, tissues, hair dryer or lotion. Late check-in – after an early morning flight we were disappointed that the former occupants had not yet checked out of our room by our check-in time. Properties on both sides of the Sabal Palms are obviously vacant and a little run down. The next door pool was almost empty with a green sludge. You may have to park on the street – not enough spaces behind the inn but they provide you a parking pass which is good on the Pass-A-Grill side streets. Cigar smoking was permitted on the front porch.

However; the pros outweighed the cons for us & we would still love to return to Sabal Palms for a future stay. Just thought you should be aware of the whole story.

Conveniently located right on the beach, quiet and clean. We had a lovely weekend away from Tampa. It seemed as if we'd been gone a long time, the pace of life is so relaxed. The room was clean and fresh with a small kitchenette which we used and had seating on our own balcony or out front or back by the pool. Great walks around the town and on the beach, a home away from home. Will go there again - often!

Sabal Palms Inn is cute and clean and our room had everything we needed. Also, it's at a great location across from beautiful beaches. We were most impressed by the warm, welcoming staff; Judith was absolutely wonderful. She was more than accomodating, giving us beach towels and even her own beach umbrella to use! Great place and I'd definitely visit and stay here again. Highly recommended! Thanks Judith and the rest of the staff! Hope to see you again soon!!
