Just got back from 7 glorious days at Bay Palms Resort. This makes 3 years in a row that we've enjoyed their hospitality. And every year, there's something new which has been added to make the stay even more enjoyable. This year it was the comfort of knowing that the new security doors with the digital passkey entry will assure everyone of a good night's sleep - not that there was ever a concern about security, but it's nice to know that the management is always looking out for the best for their guests. As in the past, our stay was peaceful and quiet (OK, there was the German "oom-pah" music that someone liked to listen to); the deluxe one bedroom suite we had was very comfortable and overlooked the pool but was the quietest room we've had yet and everyone is determined to make sure you have the best possible stay. Ewa at the front desk and the housekeeper, Inga, were two of the wonderful staff who always had a smile on their faces; and, of course, Robert is always around to check on something or say "hi". It was delightful to see his two young children help him close up the pool one evening!
If you're looking for a serene and comfortable inn that's "near the action" but "far from the madding crowd", I would highly recommend Bay Palms Resort. The suites provide a well-equipped eating area (bring your own food, tho), updated bathroom and spotlessly clean sitting area and bedroom(s). Sunning on the large deck is terrific; the pool is small but spotless. There are just too, too many great things to write down about Bay Palms - you have to actually experience them all for yourself! Make your reservation, then sit back and relax!
