A guest from Rochester, NY recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in May, 2016 This was our first stay at the Palm Island Resort. Everything was wonderful! The view from our villa, the dinners at RumBay, the sunrises & sunsets, and the fishing charters. We will definitely be back!
Justin R. from Hollywood, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in May, 2016 We had a fantastic time at the resort. The grounds are beautiful and we enjoyed all of the amenities. My girlfriend has been coming there for 10 years but this was my first time. She was slightly disappointed with our room, saying it was more outdated than some of the others she has stayed in not to mention the entire room along with the furniture smelled like cigerette smoke. Other than that the stay was fantastic. The staff was extremely pleasant and helpful.
Kristi D. from Placida, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in April, 2016 This was our first time at this resort. It was the most relaxing week, the beach is beautiful, the sunsets are extraordinary, the resort staff makes your stay extremely comfortable. My husband and I stayed on Palm island for our anniversary and truly had the best week ever. We opted to rent bicycles instead of a golf cart and had a great time exploring the island! It is a beautiful resort....if you are looking for relaxation look no further this is the place!
Michael F. from Placida, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in February, 2016 We were pleasantly surprised by our stay on Palm Island as we had never read or heard anything about it when we booked it for 2weeks. It was a beautiful, restful resort between Ft. Myers and Venice near Part Charlotte we enjoyed our beautiful condo, the shell-laden beach, the fitness center, and the activities that were available. Had a great time kayaking the mangrove trail with Kris who was very knowledgeable about the history, animals and the ecosystem of this true barrier island. We will be back!
Robert S. from Huntington Woods, MI does not recommend this property. Stayed for 3 days in October, 2015 Island experience was ok - nothing exceptional. Condo units was not the nicest for the money, and not able to get coffee in the morning.
Scott H. from Pittsburg, KS recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in September, 2015 We have been coming to Palm Island for almost 25 years, but had never visited during September until this year. We were on the island for five days and it was wonderfully quiet and relaxing. The beach is never crowded, but during our stay we enjoyed having it almost completely to ourselves on weekdays. The weather was great, with only the expected amount of rain, and mostly gorgeous sunny days with highs in the eighties. The property we rented for this stay was up to the usual high standards we expect when we stay at Palm Island, and the staff were friendly and helpful, again, as always. We love visiting Palm Island and will be back again!
A guest from Tampa, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in September, 2015 Palm Island is the perfect getaway! Everyone is so nice, welcoming and helpful. The resort property is beautiful, great activities available, beach unbeatable. Rum Bay Restaurant is consistently good, and very reasonably priced. We have been to Palm Island Resort multiple times and always have a wonderful time. The only reason we are not giving our stay this time all '5 stars' is that the 1-bedroom unit we were in is just 'worn out'. It is looking shabby, especially the bathroom. The wallpaper was peeling off the wall, the plates on the knobs of the sink, tub/shower all fell off, the sink faucet was almost impossible to pull up/on. The bathroom just has a very dated, worn out look to it. The bed mattress sags in the middle. The unit just 'needs a facelift'. That said, everything was certainly clean, but the shabbiness in the bathroom made it feel 'kinda gross'. We had a great time, despite these few things!! We highly recommend Palm Island Resort!!!
Richard C. from Leo, Indiana recommends this property. Stayed for 1 days in May, 2015 We?ve been to Palm Island Resort several times before this visit and always enjoyed our stay. This visit represents a first for us as we?re staying a full two weeks. When we arrived in our unit on Saturday, we felt the accommodations were adequate, but definitely in need of some attention. The wallpaper was peeling in a few places, the carpet was a bit worn and the furnishings were showing their age ? or at least noticeable wear. Over the next 24 hours though, our initial impressions went from dubious to worse as what was initially noticed as a faint odor seemed to grow to the point that we decided something had to be done, or our two-week vacation was going to be spoiled by this development. We called the resort office and explained our concerns, expressing our desire to have the carpet cleaned. Instead, the office offered to move us to a different unit. We eventually agreed, and, within a couple of hours, had re-packed everything and moved a few buildings down the road, with the help of one of the resort?s very helpful bellmen. The unit we are now in is far and away better than the previous unit. The carpets are clean and in great shape as are the furnishings. Most importantly ? no more bad odor. In fact everything smelled fresh and clean. So, moral of the story is that each of these units is privately owned and, unless you have first-hand experience, or a trusted recommendation, the quality of the unit you get is a hit-or-miss situation. Thankfully, the resort management seems very willing to accommodate reasonable requests and have certainly satisfied us!
Dan B. from Port Charlotte, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in May, 2015 As always, it was AWESOME! The staff at the resort are THE BEST! We wouldn't make it through our schedules without our monthly get-away! The BBQ was incredible as always! Always something to look forward to!
Reviewed by: Vanessa F. does not recommend this property. Stayed for 7 days in May, 2015 This was my 4th visit to Palm Island Resort. I tried to book a 'superior' beach villa but could only get 'deluxe'. It was not well-named! The décor of kitchen and bathroom was still from 1980's and wallpaper was peeling. We complained and they just said they would tell the owners. Also resort staff gave no assistance with sourcing local activities 'Here's a list - go call them yourself.' was what the Recreation Manager said when we asked her about boat trips, fishing, restaurants - everything! Apart from that the resort was just as quiet and beautiful as we remembered with just as many shells, birds and flowers.
Bunny P. from Lakewood Ranch, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in April, 2015 I have gone to Palm Island to relax and chill out for numerous years and I love it there!! If you want low key relaxing, beautiful beaches then Palm Island is for you!!
A guest from Old Lyme, CT does not recommend this property. Stayed for 9 days in March, 2015 Very relaxing, beautiful beach. Enjoyed the fact there were no cars allowed. However our unit was in need of updating - furniture was old and saggy, wallpaper was coming off the wall, bedroom wall lamp was loose, towels were tired.
A guest from Utica, MI does not recommend this property. Stayed for 4 days in March, 2015 I understood the rating of the units when we were booking. I would have expected that the units be clean. Ours was for the most part. However the carpet was stained badly in the bedroom and and several areas in the living room. If the unit at least had the carpet deep cleaned perhaps I would recommend this property. Also did not understand house cleaning. Don't know of any place that would make you call for bath towels and have them left outside. Other then those two items the island was great and very relaxing. Many walks on the beach in the morning and at sunset.
Dean I. from Doral, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in August, 2014 If you are looking for some quiet time with the family this is the perfect spot. No stress, no crowds just pure relaxation. I've been searching for a place like this for 17 years and I finally found it. The villas are wonderful and clean. You must get a golf cart to drive around the resort, and everyone you see always says hello you don't find that anywhere else on the planet. The staff is wonderful, so helpful.I knew it was going to be a great stay when I received a phone call a week in advance of our arrival. They were letting me know that they were waiting for our arrival and if I there was anything else they could help with.If I had to change one thing, just one little thing it would be to keep the restaurant open later. It closes at 9PM every night. You stay at the beach till 6 or 7 you have to rush to get to the restaurant. Other than that 1 little thing, it really is the perfect vacation spot. I can sum it up like this, if you are looking for a vacation at the beach with lots of people and activities, waiters bringing you cold rum punch and elegant dining, this is not the place. But if you are looking for a relaxing spot to spend with family and friends, no crowds or long lines, the ability to share an entire beach with may 3 others this is the perfect spot.
A guest from sarasota, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in August, 2014 Great condo. On site restaurant reasonable prices and good food. Would like to have a little later check out time so you don't have to rush and be out by 11:00 am.
Shannon P. from Tampa, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2014 We have been coming to Palm Island for well over 25 years. The property has changed for the better over that time for the most part. It has gone from a quaint little secret getaway island to a large and more developed resort with a lot to offer. The beaches are pristine, beautiful, and not crowded. We will be back.

A guest from Port Charlotte, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in May, 2014 Once again, the island did not disappoint! The sunsets were beautiful and the stay was very relaxing! The staff was GREAT as always!
A guest from Port Charlotte, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in May, 2014 As always, Palm Island Resort is incredible. The peaceful sounds of the ocean and no traffic is so soothing! We saw 2 awesome sunsets and the shore birds were all out this trip! The BEST!
A guest from Port Charlotte, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in March, 2014 Our weekend was again AWESOME! It was a bit busier this trip because of season, but it still doesn't com[are to the mainland! What a wonderful trip! Quiet, serene, and blissful!
A guest from Winter Park, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in March, 2014 My husband and I chose Palm Island Resort for our 30th Anniversary Celebration. With limited time off, driving rather than flying to an island paradise was preferred. The limited access to the island (by boat or ferry) definitely maintained the island atmosphere and the Resort's privacy. We planned ahead and brought most of our own food, but a Publix is conveniently located on the mainland (less than a mile before the ferry) so shopping wasn't a problem. Our Beach Villa was beautiful (though a bit dated) and conveniently located near the island's restaurant, Rum Bay. Rum Bay offered a range of fare (though a little pricey). Taking a water taxi to the mainland to Johnny Leverock's was a highlight and the food was good and affordable. We brought our own bikes and enjoyed long bike rides and leisurely walks on the beautiful gulf side beach. Despite less than wonderful weather, we really enjoyed our stay at the resort and will definitely go back.
Penny H. from Mt. Uttlon, NY recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in February, 2014 We really enjoyed our stay at Palm Island. The bell men were all very friendly and helpful. I did find the girls in the store to not be a friendly, helpful but not friendly.
Relaxation in a Great Location with a Hint of Mildew
Shirley V. from Dixon, IL recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in February, 2014 The location of our villa was perfect--in the middle of the resort close to the "action." The villa itself was a huge disappointment. The furnishings were very dated, the carpeting was extremely dirty, and the place reeked of mildew. We had to open all the windows and doors in order to let it air out. We visited our friends' villa and spent our time there as it was lovely and did not smell.Our kayaking experience was great thanks to our guide Chris.Our food was okay except for the shrimp pesto dish which had so much oil that we had to ask the waitress to drain it off, and still it was inedible.This resort is good for total relaxation. All of the workers were pleasant and helpful.
Renee W. from Port Charlotte, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in December, 2013 I was on PI to give a workshop to teachers. It was a fantastic location to stay at and to have a workshop. The setting was sooo inviting. And the service was friendly and the food was yummy too! I look forward to spending a weekend away on PI sometime soon!
Joseph L. from Tampa, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in November, 2013 We always have a fantastic time when visiting your resort. We continue to have hope that when we win the lotto, we can purchase a condo at P. I. and live happily ever after. We really LOVED the character "Red Beard". What an excellent entertainer for all ages.
Shaun P. from Safety Harbor, Florida recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in September, 2013 On our honeymoon for 4 nights. We experienced it all. The best month of the year to come. Very quiet! Almost like we were here by ourselves.
A guest from Port Charlotte, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in August, 2013 Our stay at Palm Island Resort was by far one of the very best vacations we have evr taken. The natural experience of the island was just what we needed! The opportunity to watch the gopher turtles wattle about and the shore birds, was awesome! We kayacked atonepoint and that was beautiful!The people we encountered that worked at the resort was wonderful! They were super helpful and kept the atmosphere just as fabulous! We left with a reservation for October already booked!
A guest from Arcadia, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2013 The property we rented was a one bedroom. The unit was clean and generally well kept. The furnishings were older and a bit worn but we did not spend much time in the unit. The island offered several pristine pools and very easy access to the beach. Our unit was well located and the screened in porch offered an amazing view of the ocean. We would definitely return here in the future.
Scott F. from Brandon, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in June, 2013 Palm Island is a great place to stay if you want a nice, secluded beach without a big crowd. If you want luxury though, look elsewhere. I've stayed in a one bedroom beach villa twice now and they are badly in need of remodeling. They're old and run down and the living room furniture is pretty gross. The kitchen appliances are fine but the bathroom fixtures are not. If you think of it as a place to crash after the beach and nothing more then you won't be disappointed, but it seems a little overpriced to me if that's all it is. I wouldn't let that stop me from going back though since it's rare to find such a nice quiet place to enjoy the beach. I would still recommend it to friends but it's important to know what to expect. I might try one of the other types of buildings next time though, maybe they'll be in better shape.
A guest from Celebration, Florida recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in May, 2013 We had a wonderful time during our weekend stay at Palm Island. Great place to just "get away" and relax. Even though we were told the resort was busy, we felt like we had the beach to ourselves! Thank you Palm Island staff ......
Still a stunning setting after all these years.....
Chris K. from Orono, MN recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in December, 2012 Been coming for over 25 years so obviously love the place. The setting is spectacular. One of the nicest natural beach environments I have ever experienced. The condos and facilities are average. The infrastructure on the island is getting old and needs an upgrade. Disapointed that the store no longer carries food and household items. It used to be so convenient to replenish the basics. Now we have to go off island every time we need something. Staff are very friendly and competent. As long as the natural beatuy of palm Island is maintained, I will keep coming back.
A guest from Clearwater, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in September, 2012 The resort quiet atmosphere is a wonderful place to decompress with beautiful beaches. The condominium was on the surface very clean,,although we had a few friendly Palmetto bugs staying with us in the kitchen..
A guest from Tampa, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in September, 2012 As always we looked forward to our next visit to an old friend, Palm Island. The escape from our hectic work world is the best medicine possible. The peace and solitude was indescrible.On check-out, I did mention to staff that the dishwasher in 3721 seemed uncommonly loud, and being from Tampa, we were not totally overwhelmed by the sight of 4-5 cockroaches over the stay.There was no bug spray or a fly swatter available in condo. Shoe soles are still effective! It was our choice not to be disturbed by contacting maintainance to attend to those issues. We are already planning out next trip to see you.
Great Amenities but Mattress wasn't in great shape
A guest from Cocunut Grove, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in August, 2012 The property had great amenities, however,the mattress was not the best. On my side of the bed, the upper half of the mattress felt sunken in. This put my back in an uncomfortable position during sleep. Also, the bathroom sink looked like it wasn't cleaned prior to our visit.
Ginny P. from Lake Worth, FL does not recommend this property. Stayed for 2 days in July, 2012 The room was very old and tired looking with soiled uncomfortable furniture. Sheets on the bed were yellow with age and towels like sandpaper. One restaurant on island and I'll say call Robert Irvine of restaurant impossible, a real joke of a place. Where do the rich home owners eat? Beach lovely and general outside of property pretty, but this is our last time there.
Loved the location and island however the staff I would not
A guest from Cheasapeake, VI does not recommend this property. Stayed for 2 days in June, 2012 I loved Palm Island Resort however the customer service was terrible. I had just spent 5 days at another resort in Key West then traveled to a wedding on this resort and I was shocked at how guests were treated. I have had much better service in way less quality hotels! I was told I could do early check-in and kept calling in to check when my room was ready, then finally at 3:15 I called in and asked again and was told "Of ya its ready we forgot to call you" this is completely unacceptable. I would love to come back to visit the island but under this management I would never return. The simplest tasks such as getting a bellman, the front desk staff acted like it was the hardest task they had ever been asked before!
John H. from Clearwater, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in May, 2012 First time at Palm Island and had a very pleasant long weekend. We stayed in a one bedroon top level unit that was dated in its decor but it was very clean and had a great view. We took bicycles and had fun riding all over the little island. Other friends rented golf carts which did come in handy. Large swimming pools and wide open beachs made for pleasant lazy days. Had lunchs at the bar/restaurant on the property and there were quite nice and staff very pleasant.If you want a very quiet get away from it all, read books at the beach and just relaz trip, then this is a good place to go.
A guest from Edgerton, WI recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in May, 2012 We love this place! Was a bit busier this year compared to last year when we came, so its sad that "the word" is getting out how awesome this place is! Both times, are condos we stayed it were very nice! Beautifully furnished and very comfortable. Feels like your at home but in a beautiful location. Staff and concierge are always very friendly and helpful. Most peaceful beautiful place I've ever vacationed too. If you want a gorgeous, very quiet beach this is your place! But don't share the secret with too many people:))
A guest from Newalla, OK recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in April, 2012 I paid for my sister's stay but it took two weeks of calling to get you to process it as a gift. I see you still don't have it right because you sent me this survey. I was not happy to hear that you even referred to my sister as "Mrs. R." (that is me) I wanted to give her stay as a gift but you just don't get it. Sign my name "Frustrated"ps you have rejected my feedback because I didnt rate you on my "stay" so now I am forced to give you a rating....gee what scores do you deserve???
Terry M. from Rockford, MI recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in March, 2012 It was beautiful. Loved views and location. Rum Bay restaurant and unit furnishings a little tired looking. We will be back, many times.
Jerry P. from Land O Lakes, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in November, 2011 We were given the weekend getaway by our kids for a joint birthday present. We enjoy walking on the beach and just relaxing. We had a great time. The condo was great, the food at both restaurants was excellent, and the staff was very helpful. We look forward to another getaway.
Bonnie A. from Cleawater, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in November, 2011 It was great, we came on a Groupon coupon and were pleasantly surprised. What a great hideaway! We are waiting for the next Groupon to come out so we can come back next year. Staff is terrific, very friendly.
GRACE L. from BRADENTON, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in October, 2011 We have stayed for many years for our family vacation get away. We will beback in 2012.. Thanks for sharing a piece of old Florida.
A guest from Bradenton, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 1 days in October, 2011 When I made my reservations I did not think the front desk was very knowledgeable about some services, it seemed like the person who answered the phone was new (no problem with that). I purchased groupon and was told that if I needed to cancel my groupon would be forfieted, even though there was time left with the promotion. I was not too thrilled but figured I was planning to visit, so let's worry about that if need be, but in the back of my mind thought I probably would not be returning. Also, it seemed to me that when the person I spoke to asked another in the office for help that individual seemed cranky (that was the part that bothered me).Well when we arrived and enjoyed our stay I decided to overlook my previous thoughts. We had a wonderful time and would return.I do suggest that the sheets be upgraded. The one in our condo were pilly and rough.Thanks, Had a great time.
A guest from Port Charlotte, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 1 days in September, 2011 Employee in CoConuts were very nice. Although we were not impressed with the two canoes we rented, one had a broken seat and the other had a hole in it!
Jesse V. from Etna, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in September, 2011 Overall our stay was exceptional, the view, the commodities, and guest services were excellent. Our bed was very uncomfortable, as well as the livingroom chairs, which had an overly soft cushion, and a mid high rise on the back. (resembles the feeling of sitting in a wheelbarrel). However, an easy fix. $50, a day for golf cart rental is pretty steep, I believe Boca grande quoted $20. Adam was pretty stuck up, images like his take away from the island resort as a whole... apparently traits like that come with the territory. other than that our stay was very plesant. Thankyou, Jesse.
Jean F. from Palm Harbor, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in September, 2011 A great relaxing, quiet place to stay "away from it all" but really not far from it all. We will be back soon with rest of our family, ie, grandkids.
A guest from Sarasota, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 1 days in August, 2010 I loved Palm Island Resort. We booked late, so I am afraid we did not get the choice unit in terms of updates, however, everything else was wonderful. We will return again someday soon.
A guest from Ocala, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2010 What a pleasurable experience. We stayed in the Beach Villas and had great views of the Gulf and easy access to the beach and pool. We would recommend it to anyone who enjoys a quiet, comfortable getaway.
Michael T. from Clearwater, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 1 days in June, 2010 We were day guests of friends and were having so much fun on the island that we decided to rent a property. Our family will definitely be back next year.
A guest from Traverse City, MI recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in May, 2010 The unit we stayed in is beginning to show its age. For example, the drawer pulls were extremely worn and some surfaces need replacement/painting.The location, pools and general site were PERFECT!! It's one of the most restful places we've ever visited.
A guest from TORONTO, ONTARIO, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in December, 2009 We had a very relaxing time and I particularly would draw attention to the staff who found a jewellry case left behind and returned it to me .Our apartment was well equipped and clean .Thank you and we will return for a fourth time next year !
Steve B. from Dexter, MI recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2009 If you are seeking a quiet getaway, this island resort is for you. Although the resort was full during our stay, you'd never know it. Our family of 4 felt like we had the beaches and pools to ourselves. Our kids - 10 & 13 - enjoyed the endless shelling and shark tooth collecting. We had wondrous encounters with rays, dolphins, and sea creatures we could not identify. A special thanks to Dan for an unforgettable discovery of Manatees at the dock. All the staff were helpful. We were especially grateful for the 4 ferry round trips included in the price. The island is paradise, but it is good to get off island now and then to avoid getting 'island fever' during our week - especially with kids. Overall - our 1st first visit to the PIR was an exceptionally good trip which exceeded our high expectations. If we could make only one suggestion it would be to find a way to cool the pools down just a little. The dips were not as refreshing as some might prefer. Other than that, we highly recommend Palm Island Resort as a quiet alternative to "the Land of the Mouse' up north in Orlando.

JOESPH L. from TAMPA, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in June, 2009 Only and I repeat only negative comment regarding our last stay was the frustrating and lengthy amount of time my husband spent trying to have a flower arrangement (ordered ahead with local florist) delivered to our condo. It was to be a surprise for me on our arrival, however, apparently it was left at your holding area. After being told numerous times that the flowers were on their way, they did arrive. Otherwise we absolutely enjoy every minute. Many thanks.

Ken M. from Bradenton, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in January, 2008 The so-called "clean" towels in the bathroom looked like they needed to be washed with laundry detergent and bleach. Also, the bathroom smelled bad, as if it needed to be cleaned with disinfectant.
