Palm Island review of stay
Walter P. from Sarasota, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in November, 2016 As usual, our stay was a welcome and pleasant one. However, we did knot enjoy the particular unit that we were assigned to. The TV's didn't work in the guest bedroom and the beds need to be replaced-very uncomfortable.
JOHN N. from VERONA, WI recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in October, 2016 My wife, myself and our granddaughter spent a very nice 5 days with you recently. We've been many times before. The unit was perfect, the pool was heated, the hot tub just the right temp, the staff helpful. We'll be back.
A guest from Vero beach, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in September, 2016 The Villa was an updated unit with everything that you need to relax with Family and friends. We can't wait to return.
A guest from North Fort Myers, Florida does not recommend this property. Stayed for 2 days in May, 2016 Let me start out by saying the staff was wonderful, very helpful and friendly. This was my fourth time at Palm Island. The unit was very clean, nicely furnished but the bathrooms needed updating by higher toilets and sinks. I was very surprised by the erosion of the beach. The worse was the restaurant. The staff were in wrinkled uniforms, untrained, and food was not very good. Our waitress put her fingers in my glass when taking it to refill it. Yuk! We then went on water taxi to Leverrocks where my sister was brought crab cakes instead of crab legs. When the rest of us were finished eating they brought her crab legs which were so old they were like rubber and could hardly be opened and when opened they were so salty could not be eaten. Unfortunately, we will not recommend Palm Island to anyone at this time.
JOHN N. from VERONA, WI recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in March, 2016 What a great time for my wife and our 6 year old granddaughter. The staff was helpful, the unit was great. The pool and spa were in great shape. We'll do it again next year.
A guest from Naples, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in November, 2015 Palm Island Resort is the perfect vacation getaway for families, couples, weddings, fishing, boating and more. The food is great and the villas are lovely. The beach is magnificent. Plus, the employees are so helpful and go above and beyond to make it a great experience.
Jim H. from Placida, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in October, 2015 We had a nice, quiet relaxing week at the resort. Great food at the "sister " restaurants, quiet beaches. Nice accommodations, GREAT staff and personnel.
Joseph M. from Melbourne, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in June, 2015 Absolutely perfect vacation rental. Very accommodating and well equipped unit. Palm Island Resort was beautiful and the staff was exceptional. Highly recommend this vacation spot but only if you love the beach in it's natural state along with no cars, stores, noise and crowds. Look forward to coming back soon.
Bonnie H. from St. Petersburg, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in May, 2015 We couldn't have asked for a better vacation, - very relaxing and peaceful. I have been coming to Palm Island Resort since 1993, and each time seems to be just perfect.
Christopher L. from Bramley, GU5 0DA recommends this property. Stayed for 11 days in March, 2015 We love the laid back nature of Palm Island and the fact that it is so unspoilt in every way. It really is a magical place where time stands still and where we always enjoy wonderful family holidays.
Doug J. from Seattle, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in February, 2015 We had a wonderful reunion and stay at Palm Island Resort. The staff were courteous, enthusiastic and professional. Our unit was spotless and completely equipped - it felt luxurious. We were taken care of very well. Thank you to all who made it happen!
Steve C. from Appleton, WI recommends this property. Stayed for 11 days in February, 2015 Been coming here off and on for years with and without kids. VERY relaxing, beautiful location, unspoiled, special. Only issue is cost of golf carts, which are needed if you want to get around a lot. Cost per night is pretty high as well.
Eric D. from Geneseo, IL does not recommend this property. Stayed for 2 days in February, 2015 Originally, we were brought to the wrong villa with someone living there. It took them quite awhile to pick us up and get us to the correct one. They didn't seem too concerned or made any reparations for this mistake. We didn't have much sunlight left and wasted over an hour that could've been spent on the beach. The beach was incredible and location perfect. The villa was ok, but a little dirty. Some of the dishes had some hardened food left on them, as well as some of the marketing literature. Again, not terrible, but just ok. Otherwise, great place for finding shells and relaxing. Pool was warm and top notch.
David S. from Victor, NY recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in October, 2014 We came to the resort for a wedding and really enjoyed our experience. Condo was great, people were great, beaches were great!! The only thing I would change would be to add 1 additional restaurant to the resort and put it on the beach. The restaurant that's there is very good, but having only 1 place to go for lunch and dinner on the resort gets a little old.
Karen A R. from New Port Richey, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in June, 2014 This was our third - but not our last - stay at Palm Island Resort and we were once again thrilled with the experience! We encourage anyone of any age, with or without children, to stay at this resort to help to remember the important things in life: family and sanity.
A guest from Wesley Chaple, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in June, 2014 We absolutely love going to Palm Island Resort. It is a true get away. We have been going to the resort almost every year for the past 17 years. The staff are always pleasant. Some of the condos could use a little updating, but in general they are always very comfortable and meet our needs.
Steven R. from b, London recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in May, 2014 The accomodation was very good except for the air conditioning which did not seem to work very well,it culminated in an alarm going off at 1am on the last day of our stay.Everything else was very good and peaceful a marked contrast to the hectic schedule that preceded the visit.
A guest from Farmersburg, IN recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in February, 2014 The villa was lovely and had everything we needed. Excellent location on the beach. Wish the resort itself had a convenience store - offering more than what is offered at Rum Bay or Coconuts.
Sallie L. from Spooner, WI recommends this property. Stayed for 13 days in January, 2014 This is the fifth year we have come to Palm Island resort,and not the last for sure. We have fallen in love with the condo we stay in and the resort and island. The people are so very friendly and there is fun to be had there. The gulf and beach offer so much. We recommend it highly.
A guest from Cape Coral, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in November, 2013 I LOVE THIS PLACE! BEAUTIFUL BEACHES, A POOL, CART RENTALS TO EXPLORE THE ISLAND, BIKES TO RENT, WONDERFUL ACCOMMODATIONS(AND THEY TAKE PETS), FRIENDLY STAFF--VERY RELAXING, NOT A LOT OFBUSTLE AND COMMOTION----PERFECT!
Sarah L. from Kissimmee, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in October, 2013 Quiet, relaxing, scenic my family loved the resort. The island was beautiful with lots of shells. We played tennis, explored the island and went swimming in crystal clear water.
A guest from St Petersburg, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in August, 2013 We really enjoyed this unit. It was bright, cheerful, and comfortable. Like all the beach villas in Palm Island Resort, the beach was just a short walk out the back door, and the restaurant and other amenities were convenient and close. We will certainly stay here again.
Sallie L. from Spooner, WI recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in January, 2013 This is the fourth year we have stayed at your resort and it is always wonderful there. The staff is so helpful and nice always smiling. We will be back next year !!!
Margaret B. from Tampa, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in November, 2012 We had 5 days and 4 nights at the Palm Island Resort and we loved everything about it. Our unit was clean and bright and very comfortable.
Michelle M. from Venice, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in November, 2012 Decided on a last minute vacation trip before the holidays. Was a perfect weekend with my family. Great weather..great time
Michael B. from Holiday, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in September, 2012 What a great time was had by all of us (4). Our unit was next to a pool & facing the Gulf. The unit was decorated beautifully with many special beach touches. This was a perfect time to go. From Sunday to Wednesday We never shared the pool (the only ones in the water). One day at the beach I looked both up & down the beach and there was a total of 4 people & one of those was me. terrific weather, super sunsets. Great food at both Rum Bay & Leverocks. Everyone was so pleasant. Had a great time exploring up & down the island in our golf cart. I had actually been to Palm Island many times beginning right after it opened in 1984-85. This was the very best time.....Loved it!Mike & Linda Butler
Sallie L. from Spooner, WI recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in February, 2012 We have stayed in the 3912 condo 3 times and can' wait to come again. The decor is so cheerful and the location perfect. I also want to add how helpful everyone always is there. Thank you for everything.
A guest from Safety Harbor, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 1 days in December, 2011 The villa was beautiful. Very nice decor. Extremely clean. Absolutely beautiful view. Amazing deck. The only thing we did not like were the beds. Particularly the master bed (king bed). It was very uncomfortable like a giant marshmallow. Way too soft. One of the ladies at the front desk seemed slighly uninformed about detailed information we were asking about the location, geography, our villa, our stay, etc. However the other lady that was there w/ her (I believe her name was Marty???) was extremely helpful. She even upgraded us to a nicer villa w/o hardly even being asked. The other lady was very nice but I just got the impression she was a bit new & needed some more experience behind the desk. We did eat at Rum Bay for dinner. It was pretty good overall. It was very nice that there was a restaurant option on the island so that we did not have to take the ferry over for dinner. We were all tired & it was late. Also nice that there's a bar & coffee place there too. We absolutely loved the beach there particularly the shark's teeth & shelling. We don't get that in the Tampa Bay area so that was a real treat. We were there in December but we'd love to come back in summer so that we could swim there. Our party all agreed that we'd love to come back for maybe 3-4 days & play when the water is warm. Maybe a bit too remote for an entire week for our group but we absolutely had a fantastic time overall for our one night getaway & we loved it. It was just what the doctor ordered!
Kay L. from Oxfordshire, UK recommends this property. Stayed for 16 days in October, 2011 Palm Island is certainly one of Florida's best kept secrets. This lovely island provides a haven for tranquil and relaxing breaks. We were lucky enough to see Dolphins most days, Ospreys, a Black Racer Snake, Tortoises and some lovely sea birdse. We can't wait to come back again next year.
Trey P. from Tampa, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in September, 2011 We have stayed at Palm Island numerous times, and we have always enjoyed ourselves. We we're a tad disappointed with our villa once we arrived. One shower had no hot water, forcing us and the other couple that was with us to use the same bathroom. Also the bed in one of the rooms collapsed when my wife, who is very petite, sat on it. Maintenance did fix the bed and the hot water by the next morning and the rest of the stay was wonderful. We look forward to coming back in the future.
A guest from Valrico, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in May, 2011 We didn't have coffee filters, not enough trash bags and we tried to close the blinds at night for sake of the sea turtles, but they are in "bad" shape and wouldn't close properly. We had a wonderful weekend and plan to make this a Memorial Day tradition.
Victoria P. from Tampa, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in April, 2011 From the ferry ride over to checking out, everything at Palm Island was perfect. Our unit was up to date with nice touches ( board games, kitchen with every tool needed including spoons for toddlers). Sitting on the screened porch watching the waves from the moment I woke until I went to sleep at night made it an ideal trip. My only complaint was the beach restoration project which required noisy large cranes, bulldozers, etc going up and down the beach. Also- please explore making available a special beach chair for guests who can not make the long trek over the sea oats to the surf. I was only able to get into the gulf once as it was such a long trek. Having one of these available for your guests would have made it a perfect trip!We will be back!
Grace L. from Toronto, Onatrio recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in March, 2011 My children (ages 3 and 6) and I spent one week on your beautiful island in March of 2011, and had a lovely time. From the beach, to the pool, to the playgrounds, we just had a blast. We relaxed and really couldn't have asked for a better vacation. Everyone from the registration desk, to the staff at Coconuts, was great, friendly and helpful. We hope to be coming back soon!!
Palm Island is our Favorite beach. We have been coming there is 1989
Susan B. from Goodyear, AZ recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in January, 2011 We especially like the beach villas and 2913 is a perfect location. Over the years the units have greatly improved in the maintenance and kitchen equipment. We spent all our time on the beach. This was our first visit in January. Since we are Minnesota snowbirds living in Arizona for the winter the highlight of our week there was the beach. We hope/plan to return! January was a perfect time. Great sea shells and sharks teeth!!
John C. from Port Riitchie, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in November, 2010 This was my 3rd stay in 2 years and we ALWAYS enjoy ourselves, though this time I was surprised by the lack of internet service in the rental. As usual, the Staff was great. Now, if you can only get the fish to come around while I am there.....:-)
Jeanette P. from Alachua, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in November, 2010 Had a great time. All the ladies in the reception area most helpful, Susan helped online before the trip and was great. The tennis pro, Bill, was fabulous as he was last year! He's pretty much the reason we came back.
A guest from Zionsville, IN recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in March, 2010 Great time as always at Palm Island. Unfortunately, ended up in a condo beneath kids who played loud music during the day. First time this has happened to us and was kind of annoying. Otherwise had nice accomodations despite no trash bags or bowls. Very nice staff. Great beaches. Didn't seem crowded despite Spring Break week.
JAMES L. from SPOONER, WI recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in January, 2010 We love it there the property is so nice and the view wonderful-it was a little chilly but found lots to do as always.The Rum Bay restaurant is fantastic will come back again. Our guest and dog will too !!!!!!!!

JOHN & SUSAN B. from NORTH OAKS, MN recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in September, 2009 We have been coming to Palm Is. Resort for 20 years. This was our first September visit and the heat was an issue. 2913 was five star all the way. Even with the broken hot water heater-- maintenance was prompt and diligent. Appreciated the rent reduction for the lack of hot water for 24 hours. We had a wonderful time. Palm Island is really a special place!! Hope we can come again soon. Now that we have a home in Arizona our winters are "Warm & Dry" but there is nothing in Arizona to compare to Palm Island! You are doing a great job of keeping it special!! The Bankers
A guest from LUTZ, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in June, 2009 We live in Tampa, FL and have chosen Palm Island as our family get-away for the past few years. We have been on many tropical vacations and Palm Island provides the atmosphere,tranquility and ammenities that keep us coming back. We look forward to our next visit!
