Reviewed 14 July 2017

This was a great little oasis in paradise!! We wanted to get away for a couple of days and now we cannot wait to do it again! The hotel and staff were fantastic and really thought about the needs of the traveler, right down to a street parking pass (if needed) and great dining recommendations. My only issues were the uncomfortable bed, the extremely small bathroom and no availability of beach/pool towels. We didn't realize that there would not be beach-sized towels available and while I'm sure we could have used the shower towels (though they were standard size and really wouldn't have supported the need), we bought our own and then gave them away to limit what we packed for going home. The bathroom, well I'm 5'7" and weight 138lbs (so I'm not a big girl at all) and every time I would try to dress in the bathroom, my butt would hit the wall....not a good feeling when you think about how many other butts may have hit that wall as well (though given how extremely clean the room was, I'm sure there sanitary issues). Also in trying to give my toddler a bath, I could not even kneel down between tub and toilet to bath her so I cannot imagine if a person or man over 5'9 would do in there. I think the remedy would be a larger room next time (we stayed in the studio size room). Overall it was very clean, the kitchen was wonderful (everything you could want) and the room was freshly decorated. Again we cannot wait to come back (to a larger room)!

Room Tip: If you are a tall or large couple, you will not want to stay in the studio due to bathroom size.

Dm J - thank you so much for your review and I'm so glad that you discovered our special place and for mentioning our staff - they work very hard to make sure every one of our guests is comfortable and take great pride in their efforts. We do have beach/pool towels available to guests in the room (they have the blue stripe) and would have been happy to provide extra towels if needed. I'm sorry you did not realize that. We do have larger rooms available and look forward to welcoming you back again soon! Maggie

I originally booked the room for 6 nights. When I knew I wanted to stay longer, Emigdio on staff made that happen seamlessly. Changing to a different room only helped to show what an overall first-rate place the Coconut Inn is. Simple, minimalistic decor and furnishings are tasteful and just right, even elegant! Pass a Grille is a real gem of a quiet little beach town, just south of St Pete beach, and the Coconut Inn is a true gem of a hotel. From afar, the price may seem high, but given the overall context, it's a real value. Plus, no surprises on all the amenities. You really can count on having a beach chair every day, beach towels provided, bicycles for your use, laundry on site and an outdoor kitchen area where you can grill. Free Parking, on Pass a Grille, that is a real bonus!
Just can't say enough good things about my experience here.

We have just returned to England after a truly great holiday experience while staying at The Coconut Inn, Pass a Grille. We stayed for 15 nights and we had the best time.
Room 5 met all our needs, the room was clean, cool and the bed was really comfortable with great pillows. Being from the UK we are not used to the noise of air conditioning and ceiling fans but they were appreciated to help cool us down.
The real winning factor was we had our own private balcony with sun beds and a view of the ocean. We spent many hours sitting there drinking coffee in the mornings and enjoying pre dinner drinks in the evening, what a view, some days it is hard to see where the ocean stops and the sky begins.
The staff are friendly and go out of their way to ensure you have everything you need, your comfort is their priority and they all work so hard, a big thank you to you all for making our stay so wonderful.
What we love about the SPB Boutique Hotels:
They are small so never feel crowded
The rooms have a small kitchen area to suit basic cooking needs if you so wish (we didn't !)
Full size fridge for cold drinks and refreshments
Hot water in abundance
Iron and board
Cable TV
Free Wifi
Free parking
Beach bikes available free of charge
Use of beach chairs free of charge
Staff on site to deal with enquiries and never more than a phone call away
The heated pool was fantastic and never too crowded.
What more can you ask for? We have stayed at many hotels in St Pete's over the last 18 years but now prefer the quietness, quaintness and service we receive at SPB Boutique Hotels (3rd stay) We highly recommend a stay at one of the 3 hotels, Sable Palms or Havana Inn being the other 2.
Check them out, you won't be sorry, the other thing to mention is the area, Pass a Grille is low key and you will not find high rise hotels and chain restaurants here, PAG is still unspoilt by mass tourism and the locals are friendly and welcoming.

Room Tip: Room 5 has balcony and view of the ocean

We spent 5 days at the Coconut Inn in June 2017. It was an all-around wonderful experience. The staff are kind and helpful, the salt water pool is glorious and refreshing, and the beach is a block away. The rooms are clean and supplied with all you need, fresh towels provided daily, cleaning service, quiet and friendly.

Location was great . Road construction was a little annoying, but being at the beach was worth it. Went to St. Pete for my sons college graduation. We needed to be close to the college and this was a perfect location.
