"Wonderful relaxing get away
Enjoyed our villa located on open water with everything we needed. From the check in every person we came in contact with so helpful and welcoming. The place was not overcrowded at all and loved using a golf cart to get around. We came prepared with food so we had all we needed. The pool was great with very clean grill area. "
Sep 22, 2018 - Sheri B., Saint Petersburg, FL



"Great vacation
We had a great time and enjoyed staying there - we always enjoy our stay at Palm Island. My only complaint is that the master bathroom is carpeted, which is pretty gross."

"Nice getaway
Nice place to visit once a year. "

"May Vacation
We had a good stay overall. The water heater in our unit struggled to keep up with our demand."

"Peace & Quiet
If you’re looking to “get away” from it all...this is the place. Beautiful beach with awesome sunsets. Expect to relax. "
Mar 22, 2018 - Gay P., Clarkston, MI



"Location awesome! Unit .... sub standard
We joyed our week... weather was perfect... great shelling.. very fun. Rental experience was very easy and simple. It was our 3rd visit. "
Feb 19, 2018 - Nancy T., Rockford, MI



"Palm Island Paradise
Our stay was fantastic! The unit was clean and comfortable. The proximity to beach access was perfect and the view from the unit was unforgettable. The resort was beautiful and well maintained. The beach was pleasantly unpopulated. All the staff we encountered were super friendly. The food at Rum Bay was good and reasonably priced. We came pretty well prepared knowing there is no grocery on the island and didn't return to the mainland until our departure. It was a perfect getaway! I wouldn't hesitate to return!!"
Feb 12, 2018 - Lynn L., Woodstock, GA



"Best Gulf view by far!
It had been 25 years since I had visited the Gulf and we were eager to show our friends from out of town how beautiful it was! We chose this condo for the view and were not disappointed! Even though it was on the lower level you still had a commanding view of the Gulf. The condo itself was very adequate, though a bit "tired," but again, the view was paramount. A word of caution about "no-see-ums." If you're not familiar with these wretched little insects, be forewarned, they will make your life a living **** unless you use insect repellent consistently. We were eaten alive and after being back a week and a half, we still have bites on our legs and arms and they still itch, though not as badly as the 3 sleepless nights we had after first being bitten. Don't let these monsters ruin your vacation as they nearly did ours. Your memories should be of the gorgeous sunsets from the lanai and hunting for shells and sharks' teeth on the beach! We will definitely be back although this time with a boatload of DEET!"

"Great Island
Overall liked very much. Unit needs updating badly, especially kitchen counters and appliances and living room furniture."

"Destination Wedding
Beautiful Island with nice ammenities."
Nov 18, 2017 - , Schaumburg, Illinois



"Wedding wekend
The location Was beautiful! So glad we were able to enjoy our friends special day on the island. Condo was pretty, but a little worn. Plus there was someone's dirty underwear stuffed next to the bathtub in the master bathroom.and the master bedroom coverlet was dirty when we arrived.
Overall we really did enjoy ourselves and would go back again."
Nov 11, 2017 - Mary G., Seminole, FL



"Best one Yet
One of the best vacations I've ever had. I stayed the last week in September. I'm guessing because of the hurricane a lot of people cancelled their reservations seemed NO ONE was there. I had the entire beach as far as I could see to myself on 2 of the days, the other days maybe 3 or 5 people were on the beach. he pool was empty everyday, I never saw anyone in the pool the entire stay. Needless to say it was a very peaceful QUIET experience. I loved every minute of it. The unit I stayed in was a bit worn down but the room was spotless not a speck of dirt or dust or sand anywhere and the outside of the resort was extremely clean. "

"wonderful play to unwind.
If you need peace and quiet away from the everyday stress of life, this is the place to come ! "
May 27, 2017 - , Southaven, MS



" Wow! Great place to recharge!
We go away a few times a year to Marco Island, Naples and Fort Myers Beach but didn't know this place exists. In my search looking for a special at places we've been before as well as looking for a new place in those areas a special for Palm Island resort came up and I am so glad it did! We have been there over a half dozen times going in a few weeks again I make it a once a month trip! If you're looking for something different and only want to drive a few hours or are willing to fly here to the state of Florida this is the place to go there's nothing like it! "

"Wedding weekend
My husband and I visited Palm Island to attend a wedding. We stayed 2 nights and 3 days. The resort is well maintained and staff are very friendly. There were remnants of Red Tide on the beach but it was still beautiful in spite of that. The condo was very clean and well stocked. We had a beach front view and the weather was perfect. I would recommend staying here. I can't wait to come back."

"Beautiful Beach
We had a fun three nights there. Loved the North Beach!
"
Mar 01, 2016 - , Charlotte, NC



"We loved it and can't wait to come back!
We booked this resort because we wanted a place to relax. We didn't want to spend too much money dose went with the standard villa and I definitely would stay in the same room again. My only complaint was that the water leaked out the side of the shower and because of the leak there was some mold near the floor on the wall. This could easily be fixed. Other than that I do not have anything negative to say and can't wait to go back again! The views are amazing!"

it was very nice. all of the staff were nice and helpful and understanding."

"Decker - June 2015
A great place to relax and de-stress. There was some construction going on to update the outside of some of the buildings that is much needed. The workers started and stopped at good times to keep the noise at a minimum.
The on island restaurant staff was awesome, the food was great. We took the boat ride over to the restaurant at the marina for Brunch one day; they had great food as well. It was a very relaxing vacation. We will be back!

"Vacation getaway
This vacation spot was quiet, relaxing, and offered the most gorgeous sunsets each night. The people were friendly and accommodating. We would highly recommend this resort to anyone looking for a peaceful escape from the congestion and fast paced daily grind. We especially enjoyed the tennis, swimming pool and spa, and the uncrowded beaches on the gulf."

"my birthday 2014
My brother and sister in law came down for my birthday this year and I wanted to enjoy a vacation at a beach which I have never done before. My other sister in law has been here before and suggested Palm Island. Thank goodness she did. It was truly a "vacation"!!!! Everyone there was so nice and couldn't have been more accommodating. The place was immaculate, and the view and beach amazing! We also met so many other people who owned or were just staying as we were and enjoyed them as we did everything else there. Thank you

"Anniversary escape
We had a great time and always enjoy vacationing at palm island. As we get older golf cart paths down to the beach would be a great addition to the resort! "
Sep 09, 2014 - Charles B., Lakeland, FL



"2014
Overall a great experience. We've stayed at the resort many times over the last 18 years and plan to return! However, the unit we stayed in this time had not been recently updated (which we knew when we booked), but some things should not be considered updates. The dining room chair seats were ripped(stuffing coming out) and the screen porch had small tears, which potentially allowed small insects to enter the sitting area. "

"Great Time - Sub-Par Unit
This particular unit was not in the best condition and was not well kept. We have stayed in a number of different units over the last 12+ years and unfortunately this one was not up to the standard we are use to. We visit 2-3 times a year and all previous visits have been outstanding."
Aug 11, 2014 - Dale S., Dade City, FL



"Palm Island Review
unit VERY out dated, no microwave, toaster did not work, icemaker did not work hard wood floors very dry & easy to get splinters in feet not rugs to protect the floors"

"Palm Island Getaway
I've been coming to Palm Island for over 15 yrs now. It's always a great time. Being just 45minutes north in Sarasota, it's an easy drive but still feels like a great getaway! I always enjoy RumBay and riding around on a golf cart. Palm Island Resort is always kept up very nice. The unit we stayed In this time could use some work on it. It was still a great getaway! "
Jul 01, 2014 - Cheryl T., Sarasota, FL



"B+
The only problem we had that now a days , we had internet for maybe 15 minutes a day in the morning . There should be modems in each villa..I needed to work while I was here to make my vacation doable . Over all our experience was good. I have to say the trash in front of our villa facing the beach was more than I think are up to your standards . But it didn't bother me but maybe someone else. The pool seemed a bit scummy around the edges but I am sure that was from suntan oil/ lotions. I still enjoyed my swim . "

"Palm Island Resort is our favorite place in Florida!
My wife and I returned to Palm Island Resort for 9 days of relaxation! It was quiet and the people are all great and the staff is over the top helpful! We are returning in late March and now looking at a condo with Palm Island Properties! "

"Great place to go, customer service needs some work
Great hidden gem of Florida. My wife and I had no idea this place was right in our own backyard. Took less than 90 min to drive from our home to the resort and well worth the drive. We were greeted quickly, checked in with ease, a bellman helped with our luggage and golf carted us to our villa. The room was well kept, great beachfront unit just steps to the beach where mid sized conch lined the beach and apparently are there all the time. We did have two complaints with the staff. First, I had to argue with the person who took our reservation as they were telling me the Living Social voucher I purchased was not valid for that weekend (fri, sat, Sun) because it was the week before thanksgiving. The only blackout date listed for living social was Thanksgiving day and they would most certainly be filling up and booking to capacity that weekend. During our stay, only one other room in our building was occupied, debunking what the reservation magager told us. Second, we rented two paddle boards and went out in the area near stump pass. While paddling, the ore my wife and I were using broke at the paddle, leaving us out in the water and having to lie down and prone paddle the board back to shore. Not really a big deal, but when we asked to be compensated since we spent at least an hour trying to get back we were told "you were given intact equipment that you brought back damaged We could charge you for the damage to the paddle." Sarah (I'm assuming an assistant manager) said she spoke with Kevin (the manager) and that our compensation would be that they wouldn't charge us for damaging their equipment. All in all, we will go back since it is a great, secluded and quiet place to bring a family. The resort staff just needs to work on their customer service regarding issues/problems that may arise and honor vouchers without argument. "

Good Experience. Plan to return. Golf Cart rental is a little expensive."

"Great Stay at Palm Island Resort
Beautiful resort ... wonderful beach! Villa was clean and comfortable. Staff was accomodating at check in, restaurant, and recreation area. Had a great time!!!"
Oct 19, 2013 - , East Peoria, IL



"Great spot for groups to meet up and vacation together.
We attended an anniversary/family reunion and it worked out beautifully. Each family rented their own condo and met up at the pools, hot tubs, beach and condos for meals. Lots of space and privacy. Great time."
Oct 08, 2013 - Leslie S., Longwod, FL



"Great vacation spot!
Great vacation location. Friendly and helpful service staff. Great food at resturant on island. Helpful with luggage. Only issue was we arrived and our room wasn't ready. Had to wait an hour for staff to finish cleaning. There was a huge wedding that week that checked out so staff was overwhelmed. They comped us free beach towels for inconvienence. Other than that, there were no other issues at
all. Had a great time and would recommend to anyone wanting to get away and enjoy a secluded island with exceptional service and beautiful wildlife. "

"Another year, another week in paradise.....
We realized during this trip it's been 25 years since our first PI adventure! We are now bringing our grandchildren to enjoy all the fun their parents had as children on the island. Our family is never disappointed when we visit. As one of our grandchildren said, I love our "resort home"!! We all agree! :)"
Jul 30, 2013 - , Lakeland, FL



"Amazing place
What an amazing place to stay. Very serene and peaceful place to getaway to. No nightlife really but that's not what we came for. The water is beautiful, the sunsets are breathtaking, and the company could not have been more perfect. Exceeded my expectations in every way. It was extremely hard to leave "our" beach. "
Jun 27, 2013 - , Tampa, Fl



"Beach Villa
The location of the villa was perfect, close to the pool, Gulf front with great view of the beach and sunset. However, the unit has not been maintained very well and is very outdated. The furniture was old and worn and the kitchen just barely adequately equipped. The dining table wobbled when we tried to eat dinner there. The unit overall was very worn and felt like it has been heavily used. It was a disappointment after having stayed in 3 other villas over the last few years.The owners should be urged to update and refresh the villa if they expect to charge the same rental fee as other units."

"PARADISE
Home away from home but in PARADISE. The view is AMAZING!! Seen 2 dolphins great place for families we had a blast will be back!!"
Apr 09, 2013 - James R., Mooesville, NC



"Lovely spot.
The villas are well designed, airy, spacious and solid. The sand dunes and beach are beautifully maintained in agreement with nature. Even though our villa was not updated, it should have had clean looking furniture, area rug, sheets and a fresh smell about it. It had a dank and musty smell all during our stay. We had to have the sheets changed. The condition of the bikes and golf carts is shockingly poor and not in keeping with what should be considered a quality resort. ie. ripped seats and rust. I wondered why there weren't more singing tropical birds. Despite the maintenance issues, we might return because of the cheerful and helpful staff and incredible beaches and natural beauty of this island. Loved the ferry! "
Mar 22, 2013 - Mary S., Hartland, WI



"We had a great time!
It was a great stay! One problem was ants--on the counters, in the bedroom,etc. Great location. Our grandson enjoyed the opportunity for bike riding, tennis, etc. which you offer along with the other amenities.
Thank you for a great stay!"
Feb 24, 2013 - , Ellsworth, IA



"First Florida Vacation: January 3-9
We enjoyed being close to the pool/hot tub and were so pleased to find the gas grills. We cooked every meal but two on the grill. Thank you for the paper towels, coffee filters, and dish detergent. We bought sugar and salt and pepper in addition to other groceries. Couldn't tell if recycling was available. Lost an earring and couldn't find it. Loved the beach and views. Collected shells. Would have liked more organized tennis, but were there at a slow time. The Pro and courts were great."
Jan 12, 2013 - , Winchester, MA



"A Lovely Weekend
We were greeted by a helpful courteous staff, a villa with a spectacular view of the Gulf, miles of beach to roam or just sit, and convenient amenities. There was a bit of wear on some of the furniture but did not distract from a wonderful time. "
Dec 18, 2012 - Bart D., N. Fort Myers, FL



"Property's General Condition
couch was not clean,I put a sheet to sit on
garbage disposal needed repair dishwasher was having issues
We have been coming there for years and this was the first time we felt the staff could have cared less if we were there or not."

"Another Awesome Vacation at Palm Island Resort!
The Palm Island Resort is one of my favorite places in the world. The property and villas are perfect for families with young children - I can always count on an excellent experience!"

"Love Palm Island
Have been here several times. Great place to relax. Beautiful beach, condo unit and pool area. "
Aug 17, 2012 - Jessica B., Sarasota, FL



"A great vacation
The entire stay was great however ther was a leak we quickly identified in the bathroom on the loft which would drain into the bathroom on the second floor. There was a noticable bulge in the ceiling which made me concerned everytime I took a shower (I stopped anyone from using the upstairs bathroom for the remainder of the stay) however when I called to have maintenance look at it he stated "it's not leaking anymore." When guests are paying for top tier facilities I think they should be able to fully utilize the facilities. This is my only negative comment, everything else was great! Travis and Jill at the front desk are an asset to your business!"
Jul 25, 2012 - Cynthia F., St. Petersburg, FL



"Great Get Away
Beautiful secluded beach with frequent dolphin sitings, occasional manatee encounters and breathtaking sunsets! A must vacation for anyone needing to do nothing but bask in the sun and enjoy the sounds of waves and the occasional midnight shower! Oh, and if you want to be active, the tennis courts and pools are available, close and meticuously maintained. "

"We actually stayed one week. Unfortunately the 1st unit we stayed
in did not have a working stove/oven. We contacted management and were offered another, upgraded unit. We really did not want to have to move all of our belongings; fishing gear, wet beach towels, a refrigerator full of food, etc., we asked if the oven could be repaired. We were told the owner of the unit would have to be contacted and consulted. An "off island" appliance person arrived (he was not an oven repairman by trade)and found that switching the breaker on/off would allow the oven to start. We were willing to stay in the unit because dealing with the breaker was going to be easier than moving. Our excitement was short-lived when we discovered that the "breaker-fix" was no longer working. Each time we called the office we spoke with very apologetic, helpful personnel; unfortunately, due to their work schedules, the lines of communication were not clear. We eventually had to move. The unit we moved to was a very nice upgrade. The office even picked up dinner tab for us the first night we discovered that we couldn't cook a meal. The initial unit was not an "up-grade" and we were ok with that due to the close proximity to the beach. I have a long history with Palm Island Resort and was a little taken back by the initial unit. Just little things like: the contour sheet on the king bed had very little elastic left which left my husband and I in a pile of sheets each morning; the glass sliding door took two hands to pull open, the door-closer on the screen porch was partially unattached; the sofa was stained and really worn and the air-conditioner filter was filthy. Our first night in the unit both bedroom alarm clocks went off at midnight with the radio blasting; and the unit above us, which was vacant, had a radio that went off at midnight set on its highest volume. I called security and they turned off the music in the unit upstairs.
I feel bad about making these complaints since your staff was very apologetic. Otherwise, the vist was a succe"

"
The furniture in our condo looked like it had been picked up at a thrift store. The couch was extremely uncomfortable and the beds were so uncomfortable, we had to take a tylenol to get through the night. If this is the only condo available next visit, we will vacation somewhere else. Palm Island is beautiful, but in order to truly relax, a comfortable condo is a must. The kitchen counter tops, pots and pans were disgusting and we had just enough silverware for one meal. Additionally, since 3 kitchen cabinets were locked there was no place for storing groceries, they had to be kept on the counter tops. The cost of our vacation was high and our expectations were high, we felt let down. We are repeat visitors,( 12 years in a row and this is the worst) and will start looking elsewhere if we are not more comfortable next visit."

"Palm Island Paradise
This is old Florida so if you expect the Ritz Carlton, you are in the wrong place. But the Ritz won't have the sunsets and blue water this place has. This is truly a tropical paradise and a safe place for families to vacation and let the kids have some freedom to explore. Thanks PI for 14 years of great vacations for our family. We keep returning year after year!"

"upgrade needed in unit 1311
we stayed in unit 1311. we were with a group of twelve people, so we had three different units. unit 1311 was clean but the decor of the unit and the condition of the furniture was lacking. there were hardwood floors that were in desparate need of refinishing and it looked like the unit had not been repainted since it was built. the two other units that we rented were beautiful. We did enjoy the two king beds in 1311 and that was really the reason we chose that particular one. Hopefully, the owner will be able to redecorate at some point. we had a fantastic time otherwise. this was my third trip to the resort and we will definately be coming back. I don't think I will choose unit 1311, as it is not up to par with the rest of the resort. "

"After all These Years......
We usually vacation at Palm Island 2 to 3 times a year. The beach is beautiful and private, the villas are comfortable in the "old Florida" style and sunsets are an event. After returning to Palm Island again (22 years this fall), as usual, Palm Island was wonderful.

On this visit, we noticed improvements at check-in, Rum Bay Restaurant, Coconuts and the Rum Bay Store. We would like to mention several staff members who made our stay enjoyable. Dustin was excellent as our server at Rum Bay. He is very professional. Andrea at Coconuts made us feel welcome, helped us with the cart rental and served the best ice cream. Sabrina has improved the store with a better selection of items for our stay there or to purchase for memories to take home. Dan from the Bell Stand took care of everything when picking up our luggage, taking us to the Reception Center and then loading our luggage in the car. He is always upbeat and helped make our leaving not as sad. Everyone in the Reception Center was helpful. At check-in, we received a large envelope with a map showing the location of our villa and inside the envelope, all the information we needed. Although we did not have a need for or see any of the Housekeeping Staff, our villa was clean and had all the supplies we wanted for our stay.

Palm Island continues to improve in every area not only the staff and the amenities but the landscape and rental villas. We hope to return in December."

Our family had two units:1311 and 1313. When I submitted my review several weeks ago, the details were the same for each. Thanks again for providing a great place for us to spend time!"

"Unit 1311
The room was a little dated, but overall was fine, however the bathroom was not as clean as it could have been. The location was perfect. The staff were great and very helpful. I would recommend Palm Island Resort, just not this particular unit as there was nothing special about it."

"Quiet and very we had a fantastic time. We love the small crowds, and look forward to coming back again real soon.

"Palm Island
Palm Island is our favorite place to vacation. The natural beauty of the beaches and lack of crowds in the summer months is what attracts us most. It has almost become a "necessity" for us to unwind a few days at PI each year!"

"My favorite place!
I have been to Palm Island several times since 1995. I have recommended it to several church youth groups in the Orlando area and they have had a good experience. In recent years my daughters and I have made it a Mother's Day tradition to spend the weekend. We love the peace and tranquility of the resort. All we need is a beach chair and our umbrella! When I get back to finish out the school year I brag about our visit. You should have an increase in bookings within the next several weeks. I also heard a radio station mention a stay at PALM ISLAND as a prize last week. It seems that my SECRET PARADISE is no longer a secret anymore.
I'd like to see more discount offers especially for loyal customers and refferrals. As I said before, I've recommended the resort several times.
I hope that I can return for another weekend stay when my family can arrange their schedules!"

"Our Family Favorite
We have been vacationing at Palm Island for well over 10 years. Our kids looked forward to spending summers with Red Beard the Pirate and we loved the peace and tranquility of the Resort. Now our girls are teenagers and we still love to spend our family time together on the island.Everything about Palm Island is fabulous. It is a very hard act to follow. As Floridians we appreciate good beaches, and Palm Island has the best beach in Florida, and we have seen them all. "
