It was beautiful.Our villa was spotless and had everything we needed. I would definitely go back."
Feb 17, 2019 - , Gasport, NY

Dirty with furniture we had to request to have cleaned, torn floor in bathroom and cockaroach eggs in drapes and other windows covering torn up. The worst room we ever stayed in. My company with me were very upset and shocked at the rate we were charged. Seem room not rent often and no one had the thought to freshen up before we arrive. You were in the room before we came as you knew and fixed the dishwasher. Absolutely gross. "

"Palm Island 2018
We love the resort, and have been there for over 15 years. However this unit was not as nice as we have come to expect. It was not well stocked (e.g., no extra pillows, not many serving bowls, no salad tongs, etc.), the patio chairs were filthy, the tv in the master bedroom did not work, and much of the furniture had seen better days. I would recommend the resort, but not this unit."

We love PIV1. Have been renting here for over 15 years. Staff is wonderful. Only suggestion is that you upgrade your sheets. They are pretty thin and worn. How about investing in new 100% cotton sheets? "

"Winter Escape 2018
The beach and amenities here are wonderful. Although I prefer to not rent this unit again. The pictures are very misleading and are thoroughly outdated. The kitchen didn’t even have a skillet, the sofa and loveseat were worn down beyond the leather, the outdoor table/chairs were mildew stained beyond reproach, the vinyl floor around the guest bathroom downstairs is torn and the floor underneath feels very weak/compromised. The bedding is very worn (top comforters and such) as well. The beach is AH-mazing! Rum Bay is AH-mazing! Coconuts is AH-mazing! The staff is wonderful and very helpful!! Love the resort, just don’t love this unit at all!"

"Had a blast
Stayed here for my sons wedding. Nice view, everything was in working order will definitely be back. "
Nov 28, 2017 - Sharlene D., Gainesville, FL

"Long Weekend Away
Great unit overall - clean, cool and tidy! Could be better stocked with kitchen supplies. Some people who work at the resort were very rude from beginning to end - check-in, a couple of the bellman, etc. We also had our golf cart breakdown twice. "

"20+ years at Palm Island
Only place we go for a beach trip. Went sight unseen 20+ years ago ang go almost every year. Your place, your beach, your time."

"The best time ever
It's was wonderful I had been there 30 years ago and it's still great "
Jul 27, 2017 - Barbara R., Murphy, NC

"Peaceful Getaway!
The island was very quiet and relaxing! We went with a large wedding party, and each rental unit I was in was beautiful and clean. Not a whole lot to do, so definitely not the place for you if you are a go-getter, but perfect if your a looking to relax on the beach or do a little kayaking/paddle boarding."

Great place, awesome staff, and all that true west Florida has to offer."

"Love Palm Island
Nice, but was lacking all needed kitchen items. Unit was clean however you could see it was not kept up due to being for sale. Shades in Master bedroom were broken. "

"Palm island 1224
This is our second time going to Palm island and our second time getting home with tons of sand flea bites. Please do something about this problem for future guest as I cannot see myself being able to deal with this again. "

Great location for family reunion. The pool and beach proximity were excellent."

"Beautiful Resort, Rundown Condo!
Disappointed! Condo furniture was dirty. The refrigerator was not cooling (the maintenance man said it would take until the next day to start cooling....great! spoiled food). The toilet in the master would not flush (it usually took several tries) and the furniture had enough dust on it that showed it hadn't been cleaned in months, none of the pots or pans had lids, the dishwasher looked like it had caught on fire at some point and the patio furniture (esp. the chairs)were in terrible shape), each bathroom only had one face towel per bathroom (there were six women) and as usual there was no ice. We asked the bell boy if on his way back by he would drop off some ice. We gave him $10 for his trouble. A short while later someone from the office delivered a small plastic grocery bag half full of ice. Apparently the ice machine was broken. Hope the office personnel pocketed the $10!! The real sad part to this story is that we are booked in the exact same room for our next trip in about 4 weeks. Can't say I'm excited about staying in the same condo!On a side note, this unit was upgraded from a standard to a deluxe. We rented this unit twice this summer (July & August). The August rental we were charged standard plus the AAA discount (rented by Goff). When I call four days later to rent it again for July trip, I was charged the deluxe rate. After talking to the manager, it was agreed that I would pay standard but would not get the AAA discount. This unit (1224B) is NOT a deluxe unit. I think management should have another walk through and inspect this unit again....Hopefully before August 4th! "

"Vacation 2016
Wonderful trip. Great beach view from the villa. The villa where we stayed could use some upgrades but overall a great experience. "
Jun 12, 2016 - Jennifer H., Nicholasville, KY

"Great island memories just not the greatest condo
We love Palm island and have been coming for over 20 years off and on. 1224 unfortunately was not as nice as we had hoped for being considered above the basic level in pricing. The interior has mismatched very worn out furniture, TVs were not the best, there was no wifi in the condo, the kitchen was not well equipped and the dryer did not work (someone came to look at it but it was never followed up on) over all the condo really needs some improvement to be charged a higher price point in my opinion. We have stayed in other units at the same price that were much nicer. All that said we loved the view, location, pool, beach and everything outside of the unit. We had a great stay!!! We'll be back just in a different unit. "

"Palm Island Resort: great venue, a few glitches
Very quite resort and expansive shell beach. Spacious 3 bedroom unit. Beware that one of bedrooms is an open loft above main level, but it has its own private balcony. For price paid, I would expect free refills on toilet paper rather than $1.99/roll at the only kiosk on the property. There is no attempt at recycling any garbage--unusual in this day and age. Request to repair leaky under-the-sink garbage disposal did not happen. Lounge chairs available for use on the beach have to be carried by the customer to the beach and returned--should be a hired hand on site to do this job. Our pool and hot tub, one of many spread out on the property was extremely clean.
Plenty of tennis courts and many bikes available to rent. Go to grocery store on mainland before taking ferry to island. Stock up for entire stay. You are given 6 ferry punches--we only used one for 56 night stay. If you use them up, you will pay ferry $55 to get back on island. No cost to leave island for mainland. Rent the newer units. Ours was an older model and cabinetry was worn and furniture a bit aged but clean. Beds comfortable. All in all, a great place to relax."
Feb 21, 2016 - , Saint Louis, MO

It was an experience staying on an island. We had an older condo, but it was ok. I liked having the beach view, but we were next to a condo being renovated, so that was not the best view. I think the golf carts should be included in your condo rent, since vehicles are not permitted. I would definately go back. It was nice to be there with family/ wedding."

"Palm Island is Fantastic!
Our family rented #1224, a 3 Bedroom, 3 Bath Villa. Everything was well equipped and clean. The décor was a bit dated but functional. My only complaint was the bedding & pillows for the king sized bed in the loft. They had a bad odor and were probably not cleaned in years. The patio furniture on the main deck was very worn and dirty."
Oct 05, 2015 - , Pittsburgh, PA

I was really surprised when I entered my condo & saw a birthday banner & gift basket! In all my years coming here I've never was given anything, so I & my daughter (share same birthday) were happy! The only thing I could possibly complain about was the master bathroom toilet needed fixing! A simple plunging was not the long haul answer. Also not all TVs worked (disappointing to those upstairs) I realize the unit was for sale but a good paint job would bring life to the unit. With all said I'm looking forward to my next trip, hopefully next year as usual! I love this resort!!!"

"Family Vacay at the Island
We had a great time at Palm Island! The Beach Villa slept 6 people perfectly and was the perfect setting for a relaxing and fun-filled get-away. Highly recommend this quiet and peaceful location to enjoy the most amazing beachtime in the US!"
Aug 03, 2015 - , Driftwood, TX

"Best "old Florida" secret!
Great vacation (as usual!)
We've been coming back to Palm Island since we were married here 20 years ago, and it's always been consistently great service, accommodations and atmosphere.
Standard units are wonderful, and have that "home away from home" feel, but upgraded units are also great, if you prefer up-to-date technology.
Staff members are always super nice, and make PI a place you'll want to come back to as often as possible."
Jul 18, 2015 - Greer K., Davenport, FL

We love Palm Island and have visited for 20 years straight. We have rented a three bedroom for many years and at least 6 years ago rented until #1224. It needed to be updated (badly) then. We were in #1224 again this year and I was thoroughly disappointed that literally NOTHING has been done to this unit. It is a dump. We visited friends in several other condos and all have at least some upgrade. There is no excuse for renting this and charging the prices that you do. Everything else at the resort is lovely. The people, the location.....every employee was wonderful---- but something needs to change with the rental units. Sadly, We are not coming back until it does. "

"Family get together with grand parents
For a family with children and grand children it is the perfect low key spot for a vacation."

May 15, 2014 - Linda S., Englewood, FL

"Very nice vacation location
Very nice, the upper floor balcony had a spectacular view and feeling. Owner was nice enough to leave us some beach umbrellas and other beach goodies - awesome! Only complaint, despite small, is that the dishwasher was in bad condition. The soap container did not open during the cycle and the pegs were all rusty which cause an injury on my finger upon loading it. Also the master's toilet clogged easily. "
May 14, 2014 - , Longmont, CO

overall good; nothing extravagent, just a nice relaxing weekend."
Apr 28, 2014 - CHARLES G., Braselton, GA

"Love this Place!
We have been coming here for many years and each year we are never disappointed. The only comment I have is that we rented two villas, one was considered a "standard" villa and the other was considered a "deluxe" villa. There was a total price difference of $300 for the 3 nights we stayed there. It was very difficult to understand the justification for the "upgrade" as both villas were practically identical, neither being more updated than the other. "
Sep 04, 2013 - , Tampa, FL

"Family vacation
I rented 3 villas for my family for 5 days. I requested all to be in the same building as we were having a family vacation together (13) of us. You put us in a building that has problems. Windows fog up and no connection to the 2 , upper units. We had to go down 2 fights of stairs and then up 2 flights to get to the other 3 bedroom unit. Also one of the 3 bed units had electrical issues, and was short on kitchen things like plates. Had you told me the building was like this I would have requested another building. I guess I should remind you we have been coming to palm island for 30 years. I was disappointed ."

"Solitude ... Sun ... Fun ... Fish !!!!
Great getaway .... peaceful, secluded and beautiful. Reminds you of old Florida. How many places can you go and see the moon and stars without obstruction and lights all around."
Jul 26, 2013 - Tanya C., Odessa, FL

"Almost Perfect Vacation
Perfect except we rented a 3 bedroom condo that would sleep 8 and were given a 3 bedroom condo that slept only 6. Our party had already moved in when we discovered this so we stayed. "

"Fabulous Location
All the staff was very friendly, unit was clean and ready promptly and had all the basics needed for the beach. It's an oasis to stay there. "

"Time Away!
Had a wonderful time! Even though it was cool out! The Jacuzzi helped with that! Relaxing and a nice time with our family! Thank you!

"Property needs work
The Island was beautiful, the staff courteous and accommodating. The property itself seems to be under repair. Inside was a disappointment since it is rated " deluxe".The wicker chairs are very uncomfortable and kept on tipping over,right down dangerous.Dishwasher should be condemt,the bathrooms need to have the toilet seals replaced (odor), mattresses have seen better days. In spite of all this we as a family had a great time."
Jan 27, 2013 - Richard M., Valrico, FL

"Dishwasher A Mess & Neighbors Unruly
The racks in the dishwasher were rusted. Prongs were rusted and bent. The condo below must have contained approx 8-10 people. The youngest member of the family didn't stop running through the condo until 11:30 pm or later. We were unable to sleep until he went to bed. After his batteries recharged, he was running around at approximately 7 am. I will return; but I will never accept that unit again."

" Curate's Egg
- Good in parts: nice decor, well laid out, fantastic position in great location. However, kitchen needs an overhaul as a door was hanging off its hinges and there were numerous scratches and dents in work tops etc."
Apr 29, 2012 - , Bath, Somerset

"Unit 1224
Very good stay. have someone spend maybe 2-3 hours looking at all the details in the unit and resolve them. For example, open each drawer and door. Fix those that are broken or need alignment. Areas of concern are Master Bath, Master closet (right side), kitchen door under sink. Hot water dispenser does nor work, spa in master bath is disconnected. "

"Island is really nice, accomodations need an update!
Have stayed at Palm Island before - many years ago. Although much has changed, it still is a terrific, feel good island. The accommodations need updating, and the kitchen is not properly stocked. If staying for only 2-3 nights, kitchen should be stocked with foil, paper towels, toilet paper, even salt and pepper, coffee filters - enough for the stay!"

"Palm Island is truly a paradise
This was a stay with our entire family, 6 adults and three children 3, 2 and 7 months. Our stay was completely wonderful. The weather was cooler than normal (yet warmer than Wisconsin where our children live) and it didn't even matter. We were together in a beautiful setting. We shall most definitely be back.
(The only criticism would be that the kitchen should be updated. It was really old.)A minor inconvenience. "

"Palm Island Review
We have been coming to Palm Island for quite some time, especially for our wedding anniversaries & family vacations. The professionalism of the staff and beautiful condos and beaches were characteristics of Palm Island that made us tell others about the wonderful resort. Our high expectations of staff professionalism and updated condos were not exactly met this time. The front office were not very helpful unless we became very strong in our needs. The condo needs updated furniture, appliances, TV's, window treatments and kitchen-eating supplies. We felt that the condo had not been updated since the 80's.(white appliances, beige formica counter tops/cabinets, lighting, carpet)
We will be back, but will not request this condo unless it's been updated. We hope that the lull of professionalism was just a fluke, and our expectation of warm & helpful professionalism will once again be met.
Thank you."
Aug 19, 2009 - , APOLLA BEACH, FL

"We Have been visiting the resort for many years. We feel they should have some type of discounts and recognition for past guest.
We also felt that the person in the front desk was not very courteous and friendly."
Jul 30, 2009 - Santiago S., Apollo Beach, FL

"Car Tram
I have never met more rude people then operate your car tram on the water. Besides the fact that $55 is outrageous to charge to ferry your car across, you would think that they would be a little more nicer. We had friends come over as pedestrians and were outraged on how inconsiderate they were when asking for help. If we could avoid even using the ferry we would have. It was an absolute pain!
In addition, make sure to pack enough food before you arrive. We purchased a loaf of sandwich bread at the store and it was $6, and was frozen not even fresh. Triple the price of a grocery store. "
Jul 29, 2009 - Jim G., Crystal Beach, FL

"great stay
We had a great stay in Palm Island. It is a great place for the kids to run free in a controlled environment. Luckily we had a negotiated group rate because the posted rate was too high for us to stay. We would look into staying here again."

"It is Chardon OH not Shardon OH
We always enjoy the relaxed and quiet stay at Palm Island. We love walks on the beach, shelling and watching the beautiful sunsets."

"Great location, but our condo needed a lot of TLC
Beautiful location, great beaches, amazing fishing and gorgeous sunsets! But...our unit was not deluxe, as billed. Old/tiny tv, grungy carpet, outdated kitchen. Also, the second master bedroom was a loft and offered no privacy. Palm Island is beautiful, but I would not stay at the Resort again."

"Fabulous Spot for Beachers/Birders
We've been going to Palm Island for over 20 years now. It's a great spot for nature-loving couples and families in search of a low-key, uncrowded beach vacation experience. Be sure to make use of the ferry pass occassionally to take advantage of all the fun restaurants and shopping in the nearby town of Boca Grande. Be advised that all the rental units are individually owned and decorated. Also, there is no lifeguard on duty which may be a concern for families with small children."

"Not too sure I want the secret to get out!
My family and I love Palm Island, it is so peaceful. Once you cross the icw on the car ferry, you feel a world away. The beach is beautiful and the units are clean. Children are absolutely mesmerized by Redbeard the pirate. He puts on a show/sing along and tells pirate stories. He also has a hut where he and the kids make necklaces etc. Our kids love seeing him. All in all, it is a peaceful escape, with or without kids. "

"Palm Island Equals Family Fun
We enjoyed our stay in Palm Island. The resort is very quiet -- but we all were in need of a peaceful getaway. Our room was a bit worn, (compared to a previous visit's 2 bedroom) but it was very clean. I can't think of a better place for a family to retreat from the bustle of daily life and spend quality time by themselves. "
