Certificate of Excellence
GreenLeaders Gold level
Completely renovated this year, Bayview Plaza Waterfront Resort is an award-winning European-style boutique waterfront resort situated directly on the Boca Ciega Bay. You can enjoy morning sunrises over the sparkling bay and then end your day with a breathtaking sunset on the beach, which is only 200 feet away. Bayview Plaza is small by design and is great for couples and families wanting to relax in an intimate resort. All rooms are spacious studio apartments with kitchenettes, some of which also have balconies with a full view of the bay. Best of all, we have NO surprise resort fees. Enjoy everything the Bayview Plaza has to offer at no additional cost. We really mean it: FREE Fitness Room, FREE Wireless Internet, FREE Parking, FREE BBQ Area, and FREE Private Fishing Pier, great for fishing or docking your boat. The fish are plentiful and often you'll find yourself staring at one of Florida's amazing creatures like the manatees and dolphins that frequent our resort. The pool also directly overlooks the Boca Ciega Bay and is perfect for cooling off while you soak up the sun. Our resort is Family Owned and Operated, and has been since 2002. 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 Plaza Beach Resorts are directly in the center of the island. Everything is within walking distance: the grocery store, restaurants, and shopping are just across the street. The front desk staff is more than happy to help you find the many activities also available on the beach such as deep sea fishing, parasailing, jet skiing, dolphin cruises, sunset cruises and ferries available to visit the nearby islands. Best of all we are only 30 minutes from Busch Gardens and 90 minutes from Disney, Universal, and other Orlando theme parks. Try us and see for yourself why so many people return to the Bayview Plaza Waterfront Resort. As a guest of the Bayview Plaza Waterfront Resort, you will have full access to the Plaza Beach Hotel - Beachfront Resort which is owned by the same family. You will have FREE full use of all the amenities at the Plaza Beach Hotel including the private beach, large heated pool overlooking the beach, FREE beach chairs, FREE Beach Towels, FREE Parking and many more amenities. We look forward to hosting you at the Bayview Plaza Waterfront Resort.

This hotel is awesome! We were welcomed as if we were returning friends, and everyone we encountered throughout the stay was wonderful. The rooms are small, but very comfortable. They have kitchen facilities, tv, and our room on the first floor had a patio overlooking the bay.

We so enjoy the Bayview Plaza we return to it time and again. The rooms are lovely, the ambiance relaxing, it's on the main strip of St Pete Beach, and though on the Bayside, you can always beach at the sister property, the Plaza Beach Resort, not too far on the Gulf side. The tw

I made reservations through priceline and am very disappointed in the facility...not what I would expect from a 3 star hotel...I visited it this afternoon and the pool was closed and appeared to be no beach access...what am I missing?
I couldn't agree more!..the sister hotel has beach access...but that's all it has!

I see that you have 3 sister resorts. Are they all the same quality? Is there one that is a bit nicer than the others? I'd prefer to stay in the nicest one of the three and noticed the Plaza is a bit pricier so I'm assuming it's that one.
Thank you for your question. Truthfully, all three resorts our of the exact same excellent quality and standards. What you are paying for is the room types and location. The beachside property, Plaza Beach Hotel rates are a bit higher because it is directly on the beach. Bayview and Bay Palms Waterfront Resorts are equally compared to the Plaza Beach, however, you have to cross the street to go to the beach. However, those two properties are on the intercoastal water, offing a pool, great waterfront piers, excellent fishing, boat docking etc.. Insider secret: The best value of all three resorts is a Bayfront with Balcony at the Bayview Plaza Waterfront Resort. This room is very similar to the beachside Gulf Front with Balcony but for about half the price. You get a room with a beautiful view and private outside sitting area, without the higher beachside cost. You can enjoy breakfast in the morning on your balcony since the room offers a kitchen, and enjoy watching the sunrise. Hope this helps ;-)

Would a small cockatiel and guniea pig be allowed at any of your sites?
Thank you for your e-mail. Our pet properties are only limited to small dogs. I apologize for any inconvenience.

"Avoid 1st floor if possible. It's a family motel and kids will be kids. It can get noisey"
"If you want a beach hotel, choose one of their other properties."
"Try and get a second floor room for privacy."
"Corner suite on the bay side was wonderful. Second floor (but no elevator), view of the bay, quiet, serene, large room too."
"Make sure to check in at The Plaza beach resort which is across the street down a lil bit. On the beach side. They own both spots."
US$106 - US$396 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
