"Another magical stay !
Our second visit to Palm Island...another 5 star stay...very nice accommodations,
terrific and friendly staff...everyone is great ! We will return !
Once again, upon check in, Melissa couldn’t be nicer or more professional.
Coconuts, Rum Bay, Leverocks, and water taxi..all great experiences..
All facilities are spotless...including exercise room and various pools."

We were there for a wedding and had the most beautiful stay. Our place was beautiful, clean, and comfortable. The staff of the resort was so friendly. The island was so peaceful and had a nice time relaxing before and after the festivities!"

"Palm Island - Thumbs Up
Very relaxing & fun"

"First trip to Palm Island Resort
We really enjoyed our trip! It was great not using a car all week and the beaches had some of the best shelling we've ever seen. A great, relaxed atmosphere and would definitely come again. "

"Wonderful resort!
We spent 6 nights here and loved it. The entire resort is beautifully kept, and all of the staff are friendly and helpful. Their care for their exceptional environment is inspiring. (EXCEPT--not much recycling?) The location of this unit was fantastic. Beautiful views and very livable. The kitchen was okay--toaster was broken and no veggie peeler. Kind of dirty (the base of the blender was filthy). The beds were clean and comfortable but the carpets were very old and dirty. Minor things (bathroom fixtures, holes in screens) should be attended to, but all in all a very easy and comfortable stay. The food at Rum Bay was okay but the food at Leverocks was lousy. Bring everything you think you might want to eat with you and enjoy a very relaxed, slow, and beautiful vacation. Definitely do kayaking with Kris--fantastic take, along with any of her exercise classes. Tennis looked great but we didn't use this time. This is a truly beautiful and special place."

"Nice place
The Villa is nice but need to removed some of the plastic flower decoration. Also, the master bedroom mattress needs to be replaced. The springs of the mattress on the side towards the window are felt. Also, the knives in the wood block are rusted and not sharp."
Aug 01, 2018 - , Miami Lakes, FL

"Great Getaway Spot
Stayed here for two nights in March 2018. Very clean and freshly redecorated two bedroom condo with all amenities. Great sunsets and very private. You need to bring all food and supplies as the island dose not have any stores, but there’s a Publix about a mile from the ferry. "

"Paradise found!
Overall our experience was fantastic! The location on this quiet island is perfect if you want a total and relaxing getaway! No traffic, no crowds, and the short ferry ride was not inconvenient and rather fun! The view is gorgeous, and the beach -- miles of unspoiled, uncrowded, walkable sand - is second to none. Dolphins and Pelicans are plentiful and we were told there were some Manatees by one of the docks on the back channel one day. The unit was very pleasant, comfortable, and nicely decorated, but some updates are needed. The air-conditioning unit was not working, and subsequenty determined to be in need of replacing, however not possible while we were there. We were fairly compensated on our unit cost for this. Bathrooms and kitchen in need of upgrade, although clean and functional. Great to have washer, dryer, and dishwasher in unit! This particular unit was well-located within walking distance of the office and parking lot. Staff was wonderful and responsive. Maintenance responded immediately when called for things like replacing light bulbs, and the initial reporting of air-conditioning issues. Window blinds in some windows broken and not functional. Most windows difficult to open. Screens on porch detached in some frames, letting in the Noseeums(tiny sand-flies), resulting in bug bites at night. Kitchen cabinets are de-laminating. A screen door on the back entrance would have been nice, since most of the time there was a wonderful breeze though the unit from front to back. We just left the door open which invited bugs in early evening. In spite of these issues, we would go back! It was one of the most relaxing vacations we've ever had. Golf carts were available on call for rides to the nice Rum Bay Restaurant on the property, and the drivers were congenial and accommodating! Overall this is an outstanding place to vacation!! Good value for the price if you can go with another couple and share the coat. We hope to return!"

"Family Weekend
Great place to relax with family."
Jan 31, 2018 - Laura B., Kansas City, MO

"Love it Here...But Still Need WiFi!
This was our 10+ year in Palm Island. We always have a wonderful experience, but the main issue has become the lack of WiFi. Even though we travel to the island to "geat away from it all" we still need to stay connected and need WiFi in our condo. Most of the condos don't have WiFi and the property WiFi is availbale in the pool areas but spotty at best. Every owner should upgrade to WiFi or be prepared to lose renters. "
Aug 05, 2017 - , ST PETERSBURG, FL

"What a great escape!
We had a lovely time. The resort was beautiful, and the staff amazing. Our unit was so well appointed, and beautifully decorated. We are coming back again soon!"

"Palm Island Stay Wekk of April 24, 2017
Women at the front desk were wonderful, great stay- very relaxing. Beaches are beautiful Pay to stay at Deluxe or Superior accommodation. "
May 03, 2017 - Paul K., Hampton Falls, NH

"Magical spot
Lovely location and just the perfect place to unwind. We love all the wildlife and the fact that the beach isn't crowded. Palm Island really is a magical place. Would love the BBQ's to be updated as they really have seen better days. "
Apr 15, 2017 - , Bramley, GU5 0DA

"Wonderful vacation
Suzanne and all front desk people were friendly and helpful. Bellman Shane was most curious and helpful. Everyone we met made us feel welcome and special. Will be sure to recommend to friends. "

"October Stay At Palm Island Resort
Palm Island Resort is paradise! We go there for a getaway in a quiet, peaceful and relaxing, tropically lush environment on the Gulf. The condo we rented was clean, in good condition and tastefully decorated. "
Nov 03, 2016 - , Port Charlotte, Florida

"Great Florida Beach Getaway
We have visited here several times and always look forward to any excuse to visit again. Beautiful beach, minimal crowds, helpful staff, amenities from active to leisurely - tennis, fishing, kayaking or just lounging by the pools or on the beach. "
Sep 27, 2016 - , Lakeland, FL

"Island Time
Have visited this resort annually over 24 years and always enjoy our time there. Very peaceful and relaxing. Will be back. "

"I will be back!
Palm Island Resort was the perfect getaway. The location is fantastic. Beach or pool your choice. Relax or stay busy. I will be back for a longer stay."
May 24, 2016 - , Holland, MI

"Island getaway
This was my 9th year visiting. As usual great time. Everything clean, property well kept. I was somewhat taken back by the lack of wifi in the unit I was renting. Also would classify the restaurant as mediocre"
May 12, 2016 - Jay R., Marlborough, Ma

"Perfect Paradise
The most peaceful place I have ever been to. I cannot think of one negative thing about this resort. We stayed 4 nights, next time we will stay 7!"

"Amazingly relaxing week on the island
Many activities to do yet relaxing at the same time. Quiet and peaceful."
Aug 25, 2015 - Maria F., Miami, FL

"Recent visit
Four women , we stayed one night as we had a house rental earlier on the island and extended by one day to stay at PIR. We loved it. 2213 was our home for a day. folks were great.accomdations perfect. We would have loved to stay longer. Would be great if the golf carts were included in fee , not extra. would be good if there was a way to have another small restaurant bar on the property. maybe some live music for short while. "

"Perfect Place!
Beautiful! Beaches, condo and Palm Island grounds were outstanding! Already planning a trip back! "

"Palm Island stay
We had a wonderful time at Palm Island.
Our villa was beautiful and the staff were so pleasant and helpful!! Our favorite vacation spot!"

"Palm Island Gem
This unit was updated, clean and comfortable. We stay on Palm Island every year and just love it! Staff is friendly and amenities are great."
May 13, 2014 - Eric F., Englewood, FL

"Almost superior
We had a great stay. Housekeeping answered each need as it arose. Towel racks inferior, broken; guest bath fan switch broken; master shower antiquated; bedroom needs a chair; Small irritants in the big picture. Unit upgraded to superior, but not quite there, in my opinion. I'd still rent this one again."
Feb 06, 2014 - Priscilla H., Grantsburg, Wi

"Wonderful quiet island retreat!!
My husband daughter and I knew it was going to be a wonderful experience from the time we checked in. The ladies in the front office were amazing. Debbie went above and beyond to make sure our stay was wonderful. Our villa was ready very quickly even though we were early to the resort. We had an amaziing stay and really greatly enjoyed the low key, relaxing quiet experience. We saw much wildlife while at the resport and were very thankful for the nature walk that we went on on Saturday morning. We were sad to leave after a short 2 night stay but will return again! Thank you everyone for making the getaway a great experience! ~Sites family "
Oct 16, 2013 - Selina S., Ocoee, FL

Even the weather was perfect. I found at Palm Island what I did not know still existed in "overpopulated" Florida, Thanks to the PalmBeachPost for featuring Palm Island Resort. A vacation spot - almost deserted island w amenities -
The beautiful beach -just steps from the very comfortable condo overlooking the calm ocean-so peaceful and relaxing - perfect!
The staff, very friendly and helpful.
I got away from hectic every day life. I rested, enjoyed and did n o t h i n g. What a great feeling - perfect vacation for me.

An amazing property and vacation!"
Jul 22, 2013 - Adam F., Palm Harbor, FL

"Ultimate downtime
Love Palm Island. Ultimate in relaxation and downtime. Only drawbacks were dirty plates/silverware in the unit and quality of food at the main restaurant (this really should be looked at closely as it is the only option). All else, including staff from Coconuts to housekeeping excellent. We have already booked next year."
Jun 13, 2013 - Nicole K., Nashville, TN

"From Paradise to Paradise Extraodinaire
How you could one go wrong... A beautiful condo on the beach, a golf cart and my boat sitting at the dock. Whatta GREAT weekend. Lots of sun, wonderful staff and the 2/2 was excellent and very clean."

"Great get away weekend.
The beach and the restaurant were both great. The ferry was a nice touch. The resort did feel "away from it all." "

"Fun at Palm Island
Love the resort! The condo we stayed in needed a few repairs as well as the hot tub closest to our unit. Love it here tho ."
Mar 19, 2012 - Carter B., Idaho Falls, ID

Loved the resort and the Island, wish the weather had been better. "
Mar 08, 2012 - Bruce A., Plant City, FL

"Peaceful getaway
We have been visiting palm island for 18 yrs. And overall has been great. Although, this visit was a little disappointing as the bed in unit was very uncomfortable, the tv in master br reception was very bad and there was an ant problem in kitchen. The unit definitely needs some attention.

I would like to say that Marty at front desk has always been wonderful and always tries to accommodate us with reservations.

Thank you and I hope to hear back from you. "

A stress free vacation resort with exceptionally friendly and helpful staff."

"Birthday Beach Vacation
We had the most wonderful time. The beach and island were practically deserted, so we felt like it was our own island. We are looking forward to returning for another great vacation."
Dec 10, 2011 - Donald S., Tampa, FL

"A Quick Getaway
I was just looking for something unique and not too far from home to spend a little quality time with my kids. We enjoyed it so much we're coming back with friends over the summer. I think if I was looking for more activities I may have been disappointed, but the overall friendliness and ambiance of the island was just what I was looking for. When I come back in the summer we are planning to charter a boat, go to the surrounding islands and explore the area a little more. The rain kept Red Beard away, but my kids are too old for him. I think if there were more adult-like activities it would be beneficial. Maybe even a movie at the pool on a large screen one night, or a planned scavenger hunt instead of on your own. Give the winner a free appetizer at the Rum Runner. Utilize the club house and have BINGO night? Make a bon-fire on the beach and toast s'mores :-) Overall the trip was great, but we're bringing more people with us to make it a little more exciting. See you in August!"
Nov 01, 2011 - Jannie D., Tampa, FL

If you vacation here make sure you get everything you need prior to taking ferry to island. I believe it's $55 to get back on island.Also make sure your rental has been updated with a new mattress. We rented a 2 bedroom for our anniversary weekend 9-23-25/2011 Ours backs are paying the price. Our villa was over $500.00 for 2 days, and still had ferry issues. I believe they can waive ferry fees !! I also think $50 a day for a golf cart is a bit pricey. The area around our villa needed to have weeds pulled so you can get to the beach. I noticed that the swimming pool area needed to be pressure cleaning it was very dirty. Our villa also had ants in kitchen. ITS TERRIBLE TO THINK THAT THESE OWNERS PAY A MANTINCE FOR THIER PROPERTY. AND ARE BEING GIVING NOTHING IN RETURN !!! "

"September Vacation
The staff, as always, was wonderful. They let us check-in early and were pleasant our entire stay. The condo, however, was terrible. We thought it had two (2) king beds and only had one. All beds were extremely uncomfortable. The door was jambed when we initially got there and we had to wait. Thankfully, the staff took care of us and got us inside. They also put the two (2) twin beds together for us. The toilet was broken and my son-in-law had to fix it. I would never recommend the condo we stayed in to anyone. In addition to the room, there was little lighting in the jacuzzi/pool area at nigh--though we understand about the turtles, it created a safety hazard for us and we could not use them when we wanted. While the staff was terrific, the accomododations made our stay less enjoyable. "
Sep 22, 2011 - Tyne P., Clearwater, Fl

"The only issue we had was that our toilet didn't work and I called down to get it fixed and no one came. Four hours later I called again to report it. At that point, my husband successfully
flushed the toilet. So I called the front desk again to cancel the repair. If the toilet had continued to malfunction, who knows when someone would have come to fix it. I cerainly would have expected someone to be there within the first couple hours of reporting it. Our stay was great other than this occurence. The room was beautiful and everyone was very attentive to any other request."

The only problem I felt was the quality of the bed linens and the towels were unsatisfactory and need to be replaced/updated. "
May 24, 2011 - Karen H., Pewaukee, WI

"Nice, with problems
Overall happy with location and unit we stayed in. Was not informed of dredding of beach during our stay which was not ideal. Master bed wasn't comfortable and master toliet not working almost entire trip with multiple attemps to fix. Tried to do a sunset cruise that resort promoted but nobody could get us info day of cruise so we missed it, just passed around. Charming island with tons of potential just not happy with a few things that I should not of dealt with for the price. On the border if we would ever go back"

"Not a good ending to our stay, as it could have been prevented
I know accidents happen but an accident that could of been prevented with a little maintenance on your part is just sad. The tennis court by room 2213 is definitely not kept up. Not only does it have several bad holes, it has not been cleaned in a while with spots of black algae, dirt and slim that are very slippery. People pay a lot of money to come to Palm Island and it is your responsibility to keep it as nice as possible so people will want to return. Our daughter, while playing tennis, did slip on one of the black slippery spots and had to go to the emergency room. This fall ended our enjoyment of the weekend. She is still in a great deal of pain a week after her fall. I sure hope you will clean your tennis courts and take better care of them in the future."
Jul 28, 2010 - Melody M., Clearwater, Fl

If you like "down time" in a beautiful place, this is it! It's also perfect for the family with children, particularly under 13-the perfect spot for simple pleasures with maximum convenience and appointments. We did one massive shopping at Publix before we came onto the island and fed 9 for a week without ever having to leave-and certainly didn't want to!"

We love coming to Palm Island."

"Unit 2213
This unit did have a great view. I was told that it was updated but I we must have different opinions about that. The carpet and bedspreads were gross. The swinging doors to the guest bedroom fell off the hinge 3 times, which my husband fixed. Also, the last couple of days we saw a couple of roaches in the room, so it must have been time to spray. I did mention all of these things at check out. One of the most surprising things was seeing trash all around - on the beach and in the landscaping. The trash can at the entrance to the beach was full for days. It was such a shame to see all that in the beautiful surroundings. "

"A family connector for 20 years no matter the age......
We have been loyal visitors since 1987. Amist the changes,the island has always brought the sense of being miles away while still very close to home...Great family/friend reunion spot.Sea life amazing,especially for northerers like us, a budget line item for any vaca plans we make for the year! Thanks to all. The Trumans"

The staff were tremendously helpful from check-in to check-out! The rest/bar was fantastic, little wait and outgoing staff, especially the bartender! He was awesome! I am in the military and no matter where I am stationed, I will make it a point to visit Palm Island yearly!!! My wife who is Japanese and son 12 loved it. A true Island getaway. Dirt paths for running/biking, pools, spa's and the incredible Gulf in your back yard!"
