Totally stumbled upon this place and loved it. As soon as we opened the door and entered the room, it was a No Brainer. Very Clean, cool layout, very nice. Perfect. Checked in with Jackie, and she made us feel very comfortable and welcomed. It was just me and my wife for the two days, but would definitly want to return in the Spring or Summer, with the boat, kayaks,..and even the two boys. I know they would love this place. the fishing off of the back dock was perfect. I could go on and on. It was just the perfect little location. We are planning to retun for sure. Thank you both Jackie and Katie

Had a great time staying at your hotel. The staff was great. The location was excellent. Loved the rooms and the Beds. Watched a guest catch a small hammer head shark off the fishing dock. It was awesome, I tried the next night to catch one but no such luck with the shark, however caught plenty of other fish. Will absolutely stay here again.

we stayed here on our honeymoon in sept. and loved it! It was peaceful and quiet. we were steps away from the beach which was great and spent evenings fishing off the dock. Our room was clean and had all the kitchen necessities along with a balcony overlooking the bay. Everyone was nice and friendly including many other guest we got to know. My only suggestion would be a larger pet area but we would also walk our dog to a park a few feet down on the other side of walgreens. We plan on coming back for our one year anniversary next year.

Looks can be deceiving. When we first arrived, we found we had to go up the road to the sister hotel to check in. It was an inconvenience, but once there the staff was very accomodating. Unfortunately we got a room without a balcony, but we were only steps from the bay. We were hoping we'd see some manatees but nothing. Oh well. The room was a good size and very clean. Free wifi is a plus. The pool was clean and unfortunately they filled the hot tub with concrete. Not sure why. The dock was actually very inviting after dark. They have glow lights under the dock and you can see some really big fish. Very mesmerizing. We used the pool at Plaza beach resort and ate at the cafe there next to the pool. It was very good, affordable and convenient. The beach was just beautiful. Also, I wanted to note that they have loaner beach/pool towels. This came in handy since we didn't have room to pack any. I think this is a great perk. Overall, I would definitely recommend this resort to everyone.

Room Tip: Bayview Plaza and the connecting motel are very quiet and clean.

Thank you so much your Excellent review. I do want to first apologize that you first arrived at the Bayview Plaza Waterfront Resort, we really work had to let people know that check-in is at the main property on the beachside. I am happy to hear that you enjoyed your room and found it a good size and very clean, next time we'll have to work on getting you a balcony room. I am also pleased that you utilized our other properties, our docks with the underwater lights and the beachside cafe next to the pool at the Plaza Beach Hotel.

Thank you so much again for choosing our family owned and run resort. I look forward to seeing you back again on your next trip to St. Pete Beach.

Thank you so much for your Wonderful Review of the Bayview Plaza Waterfront Resort. We appreciate that you make the trip every year from Germany, and spending three weeks of your holidays with us. Thank you for mentioning our very clean rooms and our great staff when you needed any help.

Try to stay warm, it looks like the temperature in Mainz, Germany is already in the 40's Fahrenheit. We look forward to seeing you next Fall.

Stayed at the Bayview Plaza Waterfront for 2 weeks in October. Was a lovely quiet place, right on the water. The rooms were a good size and very clean and had everything that you could need. I would definitely stay here again.

Staying at the Bayview Plaza bay hotel gave us access to the canal and the beach. We had the best of both worlds. All the amenities were great and the staff was very helpful. The tiki bar on the beach was really nice to hang out. I would for sure stay there again.
