"Palm Island villa
Villa was clean and comfortable. My son had his wedding on the island. Very peaceful environment. Not many options for meals. Bring your own food."

"Great Escape from reality staycation
Very good...nice accommodations, Rum Bay Restaurant was awesome!"

"Rejuvenating, peaceful, a paradice too good to be true!
It was amazing ( as usual). I brought two of my daughters who have heard me praise Palm Island for years . They were looking forward to going, but, until they actually absorbed what I had been raving about they were sold & wanted to stay more then just two nights.
There is not one negative thing I can say about our stay. Every time I have stayed at Palm Island when I step on to the island, I feel like I’m home ! "

" Still loving palm island resort after 18 years
Paradise "

"Could have been better
Not the best. The property was fine and we enjoy this get away but the unit needs some attention. There was a broken picture with broken glass in the closet which my 3 year old found during a game of hide and seek. The TVs were not fully operational. Guest room TV only comes in black and white with no audio. Holes in second set of sheets. AC was much stronger in guest room than rest of unit. All 4 of us slept in the guest room as a result. Jets in the hot tub were not working. Power went out during last night.
All in all the vacation was ok, but we were actually eager to get home."

"We love Palm Island
Every year for the last 5 years we have been coming to Palm Island for Memorial Day weekend! We love our mini vacation there and it is something we look forward to all year long. The accommodations are great and the beaches are beautiful. It is truly island time when you are there! Best sunsets around!"

"Fielder Wedding/ Island Experience
I enjoyed my stay over the weekend for my daughter's wedding and the staff were always attentive to any questions or requests I had. Timing of red tide during the week put a damper on outdoor activities but we managed to have fun!"

"Return to Palm Island resort
After 22 years of yearly visits, still the best place to spend time and relax"
Aug 07, 2016 - Donald H., Lakeland, FL

"Great Vacation!
Stayed the week that the first tropical storm went by and STILL the fishing was awesome. We changed units several times before we actually arrived and Merry was very helpful and pleasant. Anniversary dinner at Rum Bay was delicious. We will continue to make this an annual destination. May even let Penny talk us into a purchase!"
Jun 17, 2016 - Rex T., Clearwater, Florida

"kristen's review
We stayed in unit 3713 which was a great location. Right n ext to Coconuts and Rum Bay restaurant. A very short walk to the beach and pool."

"Our yearly Honeymoon Trip
We decided to vacation in the states this year and I did some shopping for a beautiful warm condo. Little did I know that this slice of heaven would be just that. This was the perfect week to be on the island, little did we know that we were going to be 1 of maybe 5 couples on the island. It was perfect, staff was fun to talk too. 2 miles of heaven is what we needed. We were able to escape from the everyday hustle and bustle and reconnect with each other. We definitely will be returning and may even make it our yearly vacation spot. "

"Girls Week Retreat
Celebrated out 11th year of Girls Week at Palm Island Resort. My friends from Ohio and I enjoyed our 2 night stay at Palm Island. The staff was very friendly, the villa clean, comfortable and a close walk to the beach. We definitely will schedule another stay at the Resort during a future Girls Week. "

"Family Fun
We have been traveling to Palm Island for years. It is a wonderful place to bring the kids. The shell and shark teeth hunting are amazing. We love this little piece of heaven.

"Our Happy Place!
Our second year at this wonderful resort. I can not say enough good things about Palm Island Resort. The villas are perfect, the beach is amazing and the staff is there for all your needs. If you are looking for a quiet place to just hang out on the beach and truly relax then this is it!"

"Clayton family vacation
very secluded and peaceful. It was nice being close to a restaurant. The staff was very accommodating when we called for a ride or if we needed supplies. Rumbay Restuarant was excellent. Sisters Italian cuisine in Boca Grande was excellent as well. Overall, the vacation was one of the best!"
Jul 09, 2015 - James C., Placida, FL

"Beach getaway
My wife and I had been here before. This time we brought the kids and out parents. We all had a great time. The place is clean and updated. The beach was fantastic! We will definitely be returning. The staff was very accommodating and make you feel like you're at home on your own island!"

"Fun in the Sun
We had a great time in Palm Island! We always come back.Our family has been here 5 times.The location of 3713 was perfect. Staff was friendly. Blender was broken and never got replaced but overall a clean unit."

"A Memorial Day Weekend to Remember
The overall experience was wonderful. We arrived on Friday and we were confused about how many vehicles we could have in our party. During the reservation process I was told two and when I checked in I was told one. Little confusing. Otherwise our room was beautiful and spacious. The resort is family friendly and the staff was awesome. We will be back next year. "

"Week of Challenge
When we arrived we were thrilled with the unit we were in...everything was as nice as we were anticipating from online info and pictures. However, after a couple of hours had passed and after totally unpacking, we had a surprise visitor...the owner of the unit. We then were told we had to relocate because of a mixup with the resort scheduling! The resort was very apologetic and owner paid for our dinner that night so we were not too upset about repacking and relocating. The driver who helped us relocate would not accept a tip because he felt so badly about our experience. The following comments addresses the unit in which we actually spent the week. This unit was not well maintained and needed attention. Upholstery was spotted and dirty. Bed linens were clean but pillows and mattress were musty and not very comfortable. We were also asked to allow a realtor to show the property while we were there which was inconvenient for us. However, we loved Palm Island Resort and hope to come back again just not in the unit we were in this visit."

"Stay at UNIT 3713
Okay, uniit was fine a couple of things. As soon as we got in the Unit, Maintenance arrived to fix a light switch which they could not do. They were there at least 30 mins. Could have been scheduled better. My wife opened closet door and it fell off the track almost on top of her. Some things need to be maintained better."

"Beautiful and Peaceful .. lovely beach -
We had a wonderful week at Palm Island Resort. The unit was comfortable and we were right at home. The staff we interacted with were pleasant and helpful. We will want to come again'"

"Preview Visit before Son's Wedding
Stunningly beautiful, peaceful and fun vacation spot. So excited to return for our son's wedding in December, 2014! Delicious food at the restaurant...rent the golf cart as it adds to the fun!"
Dec 02, 2014 - Jennifer/Scott W., Lutz, FL

"Palm Island Resort - Unit 3713
We had a wonderful time at Palm Island resort. We got off to a bit of a shaky start in that our unit was not accessible until 4:30 pm when checkout was at 3:00 pm but we enjoyed a very relaxing vacation thereafter. One area of improvement would be the quality of food at Rum Bay and Leverocks. We'd be more likely to cook more next time or eat out in town."
Aug 06, 2014 - Andrea D., Tampa, FL

"Excellant place to get away...quiet and relaxing
Collect sharks teeth, sea shells and relax. Love driving the golf carts around and looking at how beautiful it is. Been going for 15 years, short drive and like it better than the Bahamas or Caribbean. Rumbay has great food"
May 13, 2014 - Calli B., Palm Harbor, FL

As alwyas a great time spent at Palm Island"

"Randall/Krauth wedding guests
My sister in law & I had a wonderful experience. Our villa was clean/modern/perfectly situated to where the wedding was going to be held. We were close to the restaurant as well as the beach. (my sister in law is older/handicapped, which makes it hard time for her to get around, so the closeness was a great bonus. Upon check-in, the front desk clerk did forget to give us our "gift wedding bags", but the bride had extra & I believe she took that issue up with the clerk herself. The security & "golf cart" transportation gentlemen were very nice & so were the men who ran the ferry (we did tip each time as they work very hard & felt they deserved extra for a job well done). We would have rented golf carts, but felt that $50 per day was a bit steep, especially when we are on a budget. The yoga instructor was nice & patient making everyone feel at ease. Our server for may activities, Willis, went out of his way via kindness & activity suggestions. Overall, GREAT experience & would recommend your facility. Thank you for making our getaway a wonderful/memorable one! Lucia Raley-Randall @

This was our second visit, and it was just as good as the first visit! I have no complaints - everything was perfect!!!"

"Had a great time. Very relaxing.
Enjoyed our stay. The ferry is a bit of a hassle, however that is part of the whole deal. Other than that everything was most enjoyable."

We stayed in unit 3713 it was beautiful and tastefully decorated the location within the development was perfect across from coconuts cafe and the Rum bay restaurant on the beach the view was amazing
All the staff at Palm Island were friendly and helpful we just loved the place and our whole experience there We definatly will be back it truly is a beautiful place to vacation "

"Short Getaway
We had a great time. A little disappointed in Leverocks, the food was just okay. Waitress was very overwhelmed with too many tables. The only problem we had were the bugs. Got eaten up by all of the mosquitos. Dan the bellman was wonderful!"

"Palm Island Vacation
This was possibly one of the best beaches I have ever been to. The water was so clear, the beach was beautiful and clean and we felt as though we had our own private beach - not another soul in sight. The room we stayed in was dated but was very clean and came with everything we needed so we were very satisfied. It was the perfect vacation and we will definitely be returning. My only complaint was the unfriendly staff. When we booked the reservation the staff were so friendly and helpful but when we arrived, everyone we encountered with the exception of one golf cart driver who drove us to our car when checking out seemed unhappy to be there and made us feel like we were unwelcome. It was strange being the rest of our stay was fantastic. "

Very Fun Get away! Went to Rum Bay and across the pond to Leverocks, The Seafood Pasta from Lever Rocks and Onion Rings Were Great. If your at Rum Bay Try the Grouper Cheeks they're awsome. Enjoyed the Pool and The Beach was Amazing and felt seculded the whole time. Awsome"

Palm Island Resort was excellent. The staff went above and beyond to make our stay fantastic. The room was clean and had everything we could think of needing in it. An excellent place for families!"

Palm Island is our little slice of beachy heaven. The sunsets are breathtaking.The shells,sharks teeth and sand dollars are easy to find and fun to collect and just footsteps away.Our unit was very clean and well furnished,however; the color on the living
room television wasn't working properly."

"Hated to leave
My wife and I were absolutely thrilled with the oceanside villa's view of the beach. We were able to enjoy the beach during the day and watch spectacular sunsets from our screened in porch at night. We are looking forward to our next trip to Palm Island"

"Horrible check in.
What was supposed to be a relaxing family reunion was a nightmare from the moment we checked in. We were first given the wrong room. I questioned this and called the front desk. They instisted there was no mistake. We unpacked our belongings. The unit was so dated. It had wallpaper from the 80's and had clearly never been updated. The kitchen cabinets were all locked, so you had no place to store your food. After about an hour we got a call. We were given the wrong room. We had to pack up everything, go back to the front desk, get a new room and repack all of our luggage. Did I mention I had just gotten the cast off of my broken foot. Our entire check in was over three hours. On the plus side, the new unit was much nicer than the 1st unit. However, the back steps were swarming with wasps. My 7 year old was stung the moment he walked outside. We were given 10% off of our stay because of the check in error. Not enough if you ask me. "
Jul 19, 2011 - , Latana, FL

Wonderful time as usual, wish I could have stayed longer. Only wish I did not get charged an extra $75 to stay later when no one was booked in my room, have been coming here for 10 years!"

"A short ferry to Paradise!
We stayed at Palm Island Resort for two nights and were delighted with our visit. The accommodation was spotless, welcoming, and so well thought-out in every detail and need. The beach and the island itself feels a world away from the busy beaches of much of the coast. It is quiet, spectacularly beautiful and full of bird life - seemingly unafraid of so few humans,since a large heron stood comfortably near us as we lazed on the sand. The whole visit was a restful and memorable experience."
May 24, 2011 - Michael S., Cape Haze, Fl

It would have been helpful to have been told at check- in about the gas grills and patio closest to our unit."

"Sisters get away
We had a great time. we wished we were closer to the beach. Loved the warm pool and quiet. Looking forward to going again next year."

"Beach Paradise
We had the most wonderful stay. Palm Island is a fabulous place for people who love the beach, shelling, swimming, peace and quiet. Anyone looking for nite life or great restaurants would be disappointed. For us, the resort is perfect. The unit we had this time was very nicely decorated, had a great view right on the beach, a kitchen very well appointed. Staff at Palm Island were all very nice and helpful. Rum Bay restaurant was improved from last time--we had some nice meals sitting on the patio. Furniture in our unit needed a little spot cleaning, but that's my only suggestion. Palm Island is the best resort so far in terms of being a very quiet place with great natural beauty. It's like having an island all to yourself. The shelling is the best! Dolphins, shorebirds, turtles, wildlife everywhere. Turquoise water. Heaven! If you want a pool bar, beach activities, entertainment, shopping, great restaurants, don't go there. If you're looking for a tranquil, restful place this is for you."

"This, our 14th visit, was as enjoyable as always. We have gotten to know so many nice folks over the years, and look forward to seeing them each visit. We particularly love the quiet, the lack of traffic, and the tennis program.
We find all of your personnel are terrific and very helpful and willing to work out most every need or problem. We particularly welcomed the new recycle program and hope you will continue it. "

"Our favorite vacation
We never want to leave! The only suggestion I would have would be easier access to housekeeping ammenities like trash bags and dishsoap--I called but never got any. Other than that, we will continue to come back year after year."

"Laid-back Island Resort With Beautiful Views!
We visited the island to attend a friend's wedding, and we plan to visit again just for a vacation or long weekend! Our villa was immaculate and had a gorgeous view of the ocean from the screened-in porch. The beaches were gorgeous, and we enjoyed fishing from the docks (although we didn't catch any fish). The Rum Bay restaurant was reasonably priced, although we do recommend bringing meals to cook in the full kitchen or one of the outdoor grills. The general store is a bit pricey, so be sure to stock up on necessities before ferrying to the island."

" It was great to be back.
We skipped last year to try Arizona. While it was nice out there, we missed Palm Island. Most all of our friends from previous years were still here and minutes after arriving, we felt like we never left. It was so good that we increased next year to 6 weeks (thanks Ann for your help). We were very impressed with Rum Bay Restaurant this year. We had four meals there, all terrific. In previous years, our experiences were less rewarding. Whatever you did, do it again."
