“perfectly convenient beachfront location in laid-back part of town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 November 2010

We were mostly very favorably impressed with the overall value of this hotel given its wonderful location right on the most perfect stretch of quiet beachfront and within walking distance to local eateries. Loved the low-key atmosphere in the neighborhood, very accommodating staff and ideal set-up with the kitchenette that made it easy to save money on breakfast and meals in between trips to the beach, also very clean and attractively modern decor (Ikea) and bedding. I almost hate to have to bring up the only minuses were that the mattress definitely needed replacing (sagged in middle and bothered my back considerably) as well as towels being also well overdue for replacing and not having any real beachchairs as advertised (we had to buy one at the local drugstore and i donated it after our stay).
Otherwise we would definitely recommend it.

Sabal Palms was as good as all the reviews said. Great location right on beach, the cleanest room we've ever stayed in, the friendliest, most helpful staff we've ever dealt with. Yudit and Emigdio were absolutely wonderful--always available with answers to all our guestions, fresh linens and any supplies we needed every day. Our room was #10, one of the smallest but sufficient for my husband, sister and myself for an extended weekend . Stayed 3 nights. Loved being steps from the beach. Can't say enough good about the staff.

we discoverd this little inn last year and inmediately loved it. It is clean,right at the beach, of the beaten path and has efficiencies so we could make breakfast. Also have tables to eat outside. Most of all, though, we love the hospitality of Yudit, her husband, Emigdio and Joe. They are all so warm and friendly and keep the inn and grounds neat and spotless. Hats off to them!!!!

This has long been our favorite on the beach. This visit was great. Have to mention Judit, the person in charge of keeping our room nice...she's wonderful. The bikes work, the pool is nice, fall out of bed on to the beach..the rooms clean. Nice...

located perfectly on the beach, very nice rooms, modern furniture and very clean, and a very friendly staff that made us feel at home. A great place for spending time on the beach and in town.

We enjoyed our stay at the Sabal Palms very much. Great location, cozy, romantic stay. The housekeeping staff was great (Ms. Yudit, Judit?)!! She was very accomodating and helpful, including providing good information about the area. We were very satisfied and will definitely return.

My husband and I spent 4 nights at The Sabal Palms and enjoyed it very much! Our room - an efficiency (#1) was large and clean - everything you need. Loved it. Very clean. I noticed that the caretakers (Judit and Emigdio) were always raking, cleaning and chatting with the guests. Very friendly couple with good advice for restaurants. Our room was cleaned each day complete with washing the dishes! :-) There is a pool/jacuzzi which was nice though small. We enjoyed using the free bikes and pedaling around Passe A Grille. The bikes could use some work but were fun. Unfortunately, the railing on the front porch was so tall that you couldn't sit on the porch and see the ocean. A bar on the top rail to rest a coffee cup and tall chairs would have been nicer than the plastic chairs with no view. GREAT beach- across the street with a little restaurant beach side just a few blocks down. They had a band playing the Friday night we were there. Great fun. We are planning to return.
