"Codo Needs Work
There are several concerns I have with the condo. The upstairs a/c grill is dirty. The upstairs and downstairs verticals have several panels missing. One chair in the patio needs the arms glued down. The walls need painting. The general condition of the condo is not what your photos portray. The front desk staff was unfriendly and unhelpful. When I arrived, I asked the Wi-Fi password for the unit and she replied that the condo didn't have Wi-Fi. I said it was advertised as having Wi-Fi. She put me on hold and gave me the password and acted like she was doing me a favor. The pool was dirty most of the time because the pool maintenance man didn't clean it in the morning. One morning there were three shot glasses down at the bottom along with several leaves and debris. This is not the Palm Island I remember coming to several years ago."

"Red tide surprise
We have always enjoyed taking our grandkids to Palm Island but were disappointed this year. We booked two condos in the same building but weren’t told that in addition to red tide we had been switched to 2 separate bldgs. This unit had ants in the kitchen which were treated after we called mngmnt. There were slats missing from the blinds, glass missing from cabinet door and a screen door that banged all thru a storm until we pushed a heavy table against it. This unit was fine but could use some TLC. The kids spent their time at the pool. We missed the beach walks. "

"April 2018 Stay
Thoroughly enjoy being at Palm Island Resort! This villa does need some minor updating; e.g. blinds, fixtures such as toilet paper holder, door mat, etc."

"Unit 1724
Best view of all the properties!!! Very moderate furniture. Definitely rent a golf cart... you use it constantly. The ferry ride over to Leverock's was great... 10-15 minute ride for great food and view. The staff is absolutely wonderful and friendly... from the moment you arrive they are helpful and polite."

"Beautiful quiet girls get away
This is my 20th time to stay her in the last 9 years and every time I come back it reminds me what a beautiful place it is.
There is plenty if room to spread out in the condo and on the beach. The pool and hot tub are also beautiful and it’s great fun to take a golf cart ride around the island. I can’t wait to book my next visit! The staff was very welcoming and helpful with any requests we had.
Someday I will buy a place here."

"Another day in paradise!
Better than expected.
The sunsets, the people, the quaintness.... how it makes you feel.
We travel often and this is at the top of our choice to escape. "

"Wonderful Experience
Our 3-bedroom villa was beautifully decorated and contained all amenities needed and the service and courtesy were exceptional. Loved the sunsets from our villa. We enjoyed our meals at Rum Bay Restaurant. We were there for a special occasion and the staff was exceptional in their service for the occasions and we were able to enjoy the entire resort and all its amenities. Would recommend it to anyone.

"Another relaxing time
We returned this year for another mini reunion with family. The Resort staff were wonderful through the whole stay.

We were contacted ahead of time that the villa we wanted needed plumbing repairs but we decide to stay in it anyway. We received a discount for any inconvenience we might have. It all worked out fine as we ended up having less people than planned.

The beauty and relaxation of the island is something you can enjoy even when the weather does not cooperate.

We have already planned another visit for August. Can’t wait.

"Beach Villa Three Bedroom C1724A Review
Overall, our experience was very positive. The view was spectacular, proximity to the pool was ideal, and access to the beach was great. However, the Villa was in need of an upgrade - our expectations were high in light of the "Superior" grade given to it although it was likely a "Deluxe" or maybe even a "Standard" relative to internal finishing. The downstairs bathroom ceiling was leaking and had been patched multiple times, the stove/oven needed an upgrade, the screened in porch door banged regularly because the latch was rusted away, the main floor tile was cracking, the window blind closer was missing in the dining area, the coffee pot needed replacing, the dead bolt didn't work smoothly, etc. Most of these issues were general maintenance issues which I would expect to not encounter based upon an approximate nightly price of $500 for our week long rental. Despite the finishing shortcomings, we plan to return to Palm Island. With a few Villa upgrades in this specific unit, we would book the same unit again. "

"We are coming bach to this beautiful Island
This was our first time staying at Palm Island Resort, and it totally exceeded our expectations. Our unit was nice, it was clean and the location is perfect. However, it is in need of repairs we hope to see when we return.{let me add we are already booked} Getting around by golf carts add to the relaxing ambience of the island. The staff members are phenomenal making sure their guests are pleased during their stay. Rum Bay rocks with their signature cocktails, sandwiches, and friendly service. We had a good time with the fishing guide we booked twice, looking forward to the next time. Overall we had a great time at a beautiful resort."

"Best Place on Earth
My whole family came to celebrate our parents 60th wedding anniversary. We came because it was their most favorite place to go, even over Hawaii! It is the only place to relax, with quiet shores full of shells!"

"1724A unit
We been coming to Palm Island for 17 yrs and love. Overhear we switch rooms because we;re not sure what month all our families can get together. This year we rented a superior room which we were very disappointed. Slats were missing on both the sliding glass door upstairs and down which case the sunlight to come in very early morning . we ere told there would be , 1 king, 1 queen, and 4 twin beds. Well, when we arrived there was not 4 twins only 2 twin , 1 pull out couch, and 1 trundle bed . This caused issues with 8 of the guest that was staying in the room. Pull out sofa , very uncomfortable, trundle, very uncomfortable. The stove was very dirty and fell apart at there bottom when we were looking for pans. We love Palm Island and will continue to come every year but we expected a really nice room for the upgraded price and probably will not spend the money again on an upgrade. We had better rooms on standard and deluxe . Someone should mention the issues too the owners."

"Island fun
Great place and friendly staff only disappointment was that we rented a 3BR but had only two BR and the third was a loft, so kind of open and would have been nice to know so its not a surprise there especially since we were 3 familites"

"Great stay at the beach.
Unit was the perfect location for us and spacious enough for our family. Everything we needed was available in the villa. Would highly recommend and hopefully we can do this again. Staff was always very helpful"

"Family reuniontime
A great place for meeting up with family. We had four generations of outstanding women having a great time together. Very hard to beat the million dollar view at Palm Island Resort. We will be back."

"Wedding trip
Great location as it is very close to the beach. Appreciated that the back deck is screened in. Third bedroom is a loft with no door for privacy if that matters. "

"Memiorial Day
Overall the trip was great, the staff was polite and helpful. The only areas that need improvement are small but make a big difference. The pool area needed more chairs and umbrellas. The grills were much smaller the previously. The canopy in the pool area was torn. The villa was great but we needed more trash bags, only two were provided. A better grade of toilet paper would help."

"Memories for a lifetime
We visited Palm Island Resort twice when our children were younger. Now that they are all grown with families of their own, we decided to take everyone back for the PIR experience once again...and we weren't disappointed!! Everything was what we remembered. Great staff, great views, great stay! We had a comfy 3 bedroom villa right on the beach and next to the pool. We rented the golf carts and had a good time exploring the island (lots of turtle sightings). Collecting sea shells was a daily trek with one more beautiful than the next...we came back with the most perfect collections you can imagine! The boys went on a 1/2 day fishing trip and brought us back delicious snook and trout. Lots of good restaurants in the area. We especially recommend Farlows for a great upscale meal and (if you like LOTS of food) Mamas for Italian which is right across the street from Farlows. If you're looking for a laid back family getaway this is definitely the place to go!"

"Spring Break vacation
Had a great time. Been coming for 18 years. Only issue we had was the code for the internet router in unit 1724 did not work. With 2 teenage daughters, that was an issue."

"A Great Escape!
Had an amazing, relaxing, and unwinding vacation on Palm Island. It was the perfect vacation. My family had a vacation home on the South end of the Island (Little Gasparilla) when I was growing up. This was a way for me to come back and share the Island with my daughter. Palm Island has so much to offer... the escape from the mainland, but also has amenities that you would want no matter where you vacation. The Rum Bay Cafe, Market, many pools, tennis courts, the beautiful beach, golf carts, and play grounds make it the perfect spot for a family to go. Just turn off the cell phone, computer, tablet and TV... and escape onto a gorgeous place with wild life and beauty. It is one of the last places where you can experience a slice of "Old Florida" the way it used to be. The last unspoiled jewel!

"Labor Day Getaway 2014
We had such an awesome time! This was our third year in a row vacationing at Palm Island Resort and we have already made plans to do so again next year. Our experience seems to get better each time and we are very glad you guys are there. Thanks for a great time and we will see you next year!"

"Yet another perfect family vacation
We have made a family tradition of spending one week of our summer vacation at "The Beach House". No electronics - no "shopping" or chores - just long walks on the beach, shelling, jigsaw puzzels and great conversations! Our children will bring their children!"
Aug 12, 2014 - Terri H., Sarasota, FL

"Vacation 6th year
This was our sixth stay at Palm Island Resort & one of our best. We had been upgraded to a 3 bedroom villa and we really enjoyed the extra space. My husband commented on how spacious & roomy the villa was. The location was great also....just a short walk to the beach or pool.
The sunsets from the balcony were breathtaking as we're the fireworks July 4th.
Our only request would be to please get rid if the "no seeums"!!"

love staying here!!"

"Incredible View but isolated
Palm Island is gorgeous and a perfect spot for young families. However, my college age children want nearby activities like shopping, bars and nightlife...nothing on this beach or just off the ferry. Very well maintained and beautiful resort though."

"Happy return customer
This is my sixth time staying at the resort. We live in Fort Myers, fl. We always have a lovely time. My only complaint is the reservation process. When you look at the resort on-line and make an inquiry, no one ever returns the information requested. I have always had to call the resort. It is hard to book a particular unit that you are viewing on-line, when you are on the phone.
Also, one minor issue, the new pool access cards are a nuisance, especially when you have to push a button, mounted on the canopy, in order to get out. I don't see why renters should be limited to one pool. The cards should grant access to all the pool locations. It would also be nice if the downstairs bathroom had a handicap bar in the shower for elderly guests. Overall, we had another fantastic time. I recommend this resort to everyone looking for a quiet, beautiful location on the gulf coast of Florida."

"Since 1991 and still loving it....
We had a very very relaxing week...Palm Island is so amazingly relaxing...we love it!!"
Aug 27, 2013 - NICK P., DELTONA, FL

Palm Island is a GREAT place to go. Staff is wonderful! Very peaceful surroundings. Wonderful place with or without kids. The unit was less to be desired. Needs a lot of cleaning and maintenance. I would definitely recommend Palm Island resort just not that unit. I have stayed there numerous times and some villas in the deluxe category are nicer than the superior category. Tip: really check out the pictures yourself."

"Excellent Retreat
Palm island resort is the most perfect retreat from the hustle of every day life. The staff was very informative and accommodating. Prior to our arrival, I was told exactly what to expect from the moment we pulled onto the barge. This is a very laid back relaxing environment, you can do absolutely nothing if you choose or be as active as you want. We will defiantly be making this a annual trip!"
Jul 02, 2013 - Jacqueline P., Boca Raton, FL

If you're considering going to Palm Island, GO!!! You will not be sorry! It's beautiful, peaceful, relaxing, fun, and everything you could want from a beach vacation. The 3 bedroom villa we stayed in was stunning, with every detail perfectly thought out. You will NOT be disappointed! "

"Over 20 years and counting at Palm Island
We've been coming to Palm Island since 1992 when our youngest daughter was less than a year old. This year all three of our daughters, one boyfriend and our grandson accompanied us. Although we generally prefer staying in one of the Land's End cottages, this time we stayed in a Beach Villa 3-bedroom unit, and had a very nice experience overall. The location was really close to the beach, which we loved, and we enjoyed easy access to a fresh water pool and barbecue grills which we used daily. We love Palm Island for so many reasons, including the quiet atmosphere, relaxed pace, absence of cars, pristine cleanliness of the beach, great shelling, wading and swimming...and did I mention how quiet it is! Great, regular, reliable, friendly ferry service (in all kinds of weather) makes trips to the mainland, when necessary, easy and fast. Over the course of more than twenty years of stays at Palm Island we have been very satisfied with the condition of the villas and cottages and the way they are equipped. During our most recent stay, although the villa was in good condition and nicely furnished and equipped, there were a few maintenance issues (stair banisters which needed cleaning, mildew in one bathroom, and air filters that needed to be replaced) which were not typical of our previous experiences. Overall we love Palm Island Resort, and plan to return again soon!"

"Family Vacation
We have come to Palm Island Resort yearly for the past 23 years without missing a year. We alway enjoy our time and will continue to return year after year!

Oh I almost forgot, Red Beard Rules and Black Beard drools!!!"

"Palm Island
Have been staying at PI ever since it opened. Obviously we like it there and will go back. The front office staff has changed and at times seemed unwilling/unable to solve guest's problems. Not a deal breaker because I don't go there and hang out in the office, but there was a palpable change in customer focus.
The Resturant definitely needs some new directions. The food was only average this time around and service was poor...long wait times, getting take out orders correct etc. I would expect much better given the cost you incure by going to the resturant. Barge men and Bell boys were great as usual. "
Jul 09, 2012 - , BROOKFIELD, WI

The charge for the golf carts should be disclosed at time of renting.
refrigerator should be turned on and ready for us when we arrive
salt/pepper should be there for us

pretty minor stuff...but when you rent an exclusive place, you expect the best!"

"Long Family Weekend
The staff from check in, water taxi service, bellman, and restaurant service went above and beyond to make our stay enjoyable!"
Oct 27, 2011 - Marc P., Lakeland, Florida

I love going to the resort I can always have a wonderful, relaxing time come home refreshed. I think what I like most is that it is so secluded, no cars or stores. I never want to leave. "
