I was so pleased with Bay Palms Waterfront. From the street it looked like your typical beach hotel but when you went to the back it was a whole different world with the dock, pool, deck and a great tropical decor, The place is beautiful and peaceful and very close to great restaurants and beaches. The staff at check in were very pleasant and accommodating...so very polite. Our housekeeper Inga was exceptional. Always smiling and always asking if there was anything we needed. Please take good care of her. What I loved especially about Bay Palms they didn't have carpet nor bedspreads. Unlike other hotels when your linens were changed you didn't have to worry about cleanliness. The floors were tiled so you were sure they were very clean because they were mopped and the room always smelled fresh. This is the first time there and I look forward to future stays at Bay Palms.

Room Tip: All rooms seemed to be top notch,

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Bay Palms Resort. The facility and staff were very accommodating and friendly. The room was clean, nicely decorated,and the boat docking was everything that i expected. I will be staying there again in the near future.

We arrived May 10th 2014 after a long ride from the other side of Florida; w pulled up and thought OMG what have we done! We travel with our dog so my husband walked him while I ran across the street to check in. After unloading the car and finding a car wash to get rid of the ever popular love bugs we soon knew why this property got such rave reviews. Our room was bright, clean and quiet (even though it faced the street). Staff from the front desk helpful and Inga the housekeeper was a jewel, professional yet sweet and so helpful. After the crowds left on Sunday it became our almost private oasis. Husband enjoyed fishing off the dock and we both enjoyed the pool. It was a relaxing stay. We would stay there again.

Thank you for a great Five Star review of your stay at the Bay Palms Waterfront Resort – Hotel and Marina. I’m glad you were pleasantly surprised with our accommodations. Though from the outside our resorts have an old Florida look by design, we are completely updated and modern. There are so few boutique resorts left, we try to preserve the vintage feel of family vacations of years past, but with all of the upgrades and amenities today’s guests expect. I will be sure to let Inga know you appreciated her service. I hope to see you (and your doggy Quinlan) again very soon for another relaxing getaway!

Travelling aroung the States my family and I always leave a few days unplanned as this always gives us the best and most memorable experiences. However, this time we were almost out of luck.

Around Easter, with 7 people traveling together on a budget, it is apparently not that easy finding accommodations for the night around St. Pete's Beach. After trying 6 different B&B's, hotels etc. we stopped by Bay Palms Waterfront Resort to see if they could help us. To our luck the very accommodating (and patient) girl in the reception had just one apartment left across the street, that could fit us all and she was very kind to give us a fantastic price for it.

The apartment was very cozy, clean and fit all 7 of us perfectly. The other guests were very friendly and the pool and the surroundings were great, too.

Though we only stayed there for one night (and thus didn't get to see much of st. Pete's beach, anyway), I will definitely recommend this as a great place to stay. The staff was extremely helpful and we enjoyed our stay in the beautiful apartment.

Room Tip: We stayed across the street in the other part of the hotel.

Our room was very clean and comfortable! The rooms have recently been remodeled and are perfect for a beach getaway. Loved it, looking forward to staying there again with my whole family. Definitely recommend!

The only reason I gave Spa and Breakfast three stars is because we did not use either.

Thank you for a great Five Star review of your recent stay at the Bay Palms Waterfront Resort – Hotel and Marina. I’m thrilled that you loved it and would visit again with your family. I just want to point out that we do not have a spa or breakfast on site, though there are several nearby that we can recommend when you return. See you soon!

Stayed here first time in February and then returned in late April. I have found that they are constantly working on upgrading the rooms and the grounds. Everyone was friendly and by the time you left if you got engaged with all of the couples / families that returned you felt you belonged as well. While this is across from the street to the beach you were on the waterside- so I observed a few fishing off their two piers. A lot of room configurations so call to see what works best for you.
