Completely Renovated this year, the Bay Palms Waterfront Resort - Hotel and Marina is an authentic Florida boutique resort situated directly on the Boca Ciega Bay. Boasting as having one of the largest privately owned fishing piers in St Petersburg at 1,500 square feet, you can enjoy great fishing, watch the manatees and dolphins, or dock your boat right on site. With a beautiful pool overlooking the Boca Ciega Bay this makes Bay Palms Waterfront Resort a perfect destination for relaxation, and best of all, it is only 200 feet from the beach. Room types range from spacious studio apartments with kitchenettes to large one bedroom apartment suites. Enjoy all of our amenities: Fitness Room, Wireless Internet, Parking, BBQ Area, and Private Fishing Pier use. Our resort is Family Owned and Operated, and has been since 2008. The family is very active in the day to day operations, on property daily, and has a friendly staff ready to assist you with your authentic Florida vacation. Members of Superior Small Lodging Association and Approved by AAA for Quality and Standards, our resort is one of only a handful of resorts in Florida that has received the Green Lodging seal from the State of Florida as well as Greenleaders Gold Award from TripAdvisor for our effort in conserving and recycling. St Pete Beach is a 6-mile island and the Bay Palms Waterfront Resort is directly in the center of the island. Everything is within walking distance: the grocery store, restaurants, and shopping are just across the street. Activities such as Deep Sea Fishing, Parasailing, Jet Skiing, Dolphin Cruises, Sunset Cruises and many different island cruises visiting the nearby islands are available nearby. Best of all we are only 30 minutes from Busch Gardens and 90 minutes from Disney and all the Orlando Parks. Also, as a guest of the Bay Palms Waterfront Resort, you will have full access to the Plaza Beach Hotel - Beachfront Resort which is owned by the same family.

A cozy and relaxed environment. We stayed just 2 nights. Considering how long this facility has been in operation we found it to be amazingly well kept. The room was quite satisfactory with a kitchenette/living room, separate bedroom and a small patio street side. There are water view rooms available as well. On the water is a huge deck area with plenty of seating and a grill. Boat slips are available as well, which we used, power and rinse down hoses are there too. Now about the Staff... Fantastic!!!!, They added that extra that made it special. The logistics of bringing a boat are a bit convoluted, but the staff was very helpful in making it painless. Included is access to the sister property across the street with the beach. I will definitely return to this Jewel. Thank You Sheldon, Tanner, Tyrel, Nika and ... Ooops well I'm not perfect with all names! Okay, we all know no place is perfect... The sign said the poll was heated...At this time it was not.

Hotel's Favourite
Stayed here during the current unfortunate pandemic. Was in town to check on family and make supply runs for them, and needed a place to stay. Figured why not on the beach?! I definitely made the right choice with Bay Palms. The premises and rooms were very clean, staff was so kind and friendly, Gabriela at the front desk was amazing! I felt the hotel did a great job during this time to keep things clean, and rooming and spacing guests apart throughout the premises. Most all amenities were still available, access to a beach almost all to yourself was great! Really enjoyed sitting on their dock in the evening. I’d highly recommend Bay Palms for your stay, will definitely be back with my girlfriend! Thank you Bay Palms! ‍

We came into St. Pete for a wedding and could only stay for 1 night. The hotel that most of the guests were staying at required a 2 night minimum. This hotel which is just steps away were more than happy to accommodate us. The check-in was a little confusing because you have to drive to their main hotel, the Plaza where the office staff is located. The Plaza is also where you go if you want the complimentary happy hour or need extra towels. Luckily, we had our own beach towels. The road is a little too busy to keep walking over there with kids in tow. But let me compliment them for their wonderful service. They called to check on us and when we had an issue with one of the showers, the maintenance man was knocking on our door within 5 minutes even though we said the 1 working shower was all we needed. We actually didn't know the room was going to have 2 bathrooms. The room was the Deluxe 2 bedroom room #826 & we absolutely loved it. It's on the 2nd floor and overlooks the deck & water. You do only have stairs so it may be difficult for less mobile folks. It also had a 4 seat patio table in front of the door where I enjoyed sitting at in the morning. The kitchen is very efficient but be sure to bring your own coffee. Each room has a queen bed (a little squeaky but comfortable) and the couch is a sleeper sofa. I really wish we had more days to enjoy this hotel. We will be back.

Our grand baby wanted to see the beach and we thought why not - we have a delivery going that way, so we’ll do a “workation”. An overnight stay at a hotel near the beach with an amazing view is what I was going for, but what I got was so much more!! An amazing room, by the pool, in the marina, and a short walk to the beach. Oh and let us not forget the amazing customer service from I believe Austin Sheldon and another young man - we left “something very important” and was called to verify we’re we missing anything. The urgency in which they moved to contact us before we were too far away was most impressive!! We will definitely be back!

Stayed for one night with my 11 year old son and had a so much fun! Our room was clean, bed was comfy and I love the green initiative in place for well over a decade. Conveniently close to Walgreens and dining options as well as a 5 minute walk to the main property for towels, beach access, oceanfront pool and family fun games. Though we spent the first day at the sister property, plaza beach (so cool) we did enjoy a morning swim at the this hotel along with coffee on the marina. Will come back! ☺️
