Kathy H. from West tisbury, MA recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in February, 2016 I am in the resort condo business - we rate our homes bronze thru gold based on quality of furnishings/upgrades. This home needs a major bathroom and kitchen overall! Very dated, smelled of sewer gas the entire time. Kitchen poorly equipped, lots of random pieces of things in cabinets. Mattress needs to be replaced - that foam topper doesn't equal a good new mattress. Sofa stained, cane chairs broken in several spots. Needs a good paint job. Definitely would not survive without the location being so great!
A guest from Placida, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in January, 2016 We were on our Honeymoon, we loved everything about the resort. Although the weather was not as warm as we would have liked, we enjoyed it. Everything was very clean and well kept.
Kim/Randy S. from Port Charlotte, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 1 days in July, 2015 Fantastic location and service. Professional and pleasant staff made for a worry free celebration on every account. The guests are still raving over the wonderful day!
Javier P. from Hialeah, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2015 Excellent staff, the beach was amazing. If you are looking for the perfect getaway with your family this is the place. The apartment was very clean, everything you need (utencils, pans, plates) . Higly reconmended.
Pam H. from Placida, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in January, 2015 A beautiful island paradise. We love how private the island is but how easy and convenient it is to get to the island. We enjoyed walking on the beach collecting sea shells and sharks teeth and watching beautiful sunsets. The staff at the resort was extremely friendly and helpful. We loved the island and we are looking forward to returning next year.
A guest from Ocoee, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in December, 2014 Couldn't ask for better service, everyone was very attentive making sure we were having a great time. Everybody seems to enjoy their jobs.
Cecilia P. from Brandon, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in December, 2014 We went to Palm Island Resort for a destination wedding. I've lived in Florida all my life and didn't know this place was so close to home. It truly is a peaceful and beautiful place to have a wedding or a vacation. I will definitely be back for a much longer stay in 2015.
Victoria H. from Fort Myers, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 1 days in October, 2014 Truly a great escape from the hustle and bustle yet so close!! World class beach, good restaurant and nice accomidation
A guest from St Petersburg, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in May, 2014 I didn't want to leave. The villa was so cute, though when we got there, the bed wasn't made and all the linens/towels were in a bag. We shrugged it off and made the bed and those were the last chores we did all weekend. It poured rain most of the time, but even then, the beaches were beautiful and we got a pile of treasures from shelling. The sun came out on Sunday and we had to tear ourselves away. We will definitely go back.
A guest from Tarpon Springs, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in April, 2014 I booked two nights here during the last week of April 2014. Having not visited for over ten years, I was worried that the resort had changed. If there has been any change, it has made Palm Island even better. I had the greatest time at one of the most beautiful islands north of the Keys. When I think of my childhood, I think of this resort. I'm pleased to say that I would recommend Palm Island to anybody: clear water, warm sand, beautiful grounds, gorgeous villas, neat local wildlife, and a phenomenally friendly staff. Where could you go wrong?
Jerry K. from Venice, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in April, 2014 We visited the island for the first time to attend Tropical Nights. From the moment we drove off the ferry to the very end of our stay, everything was outstanding. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and can't wait to return.
Robert H. from Bonita Springs, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in April, 2014 Our accommodations were fine/cheery. A BIG plus for us was the staff who seemed truly glad that we had come and went out of their way to see that all of our expectations were met. Amy (last name escapes me) was especially helpful and ingratiating from the time we arrived until we left. The one downer was the dust we encountered on the roadways. As passengers on the rear of a golf cart we were coated with dust. It would be nice if the roadways could be treated/modified to eliminate/reduce the dust.
Maureen B. from Dunedin, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 1 days in April, 2014 We have been to Palm Island several times over the past 12 years. We started staying at the resort 3 years ago and have not stayed anywhere else since. The resort staff are very helpful and every villa we have stayed at has been in great shape. We plan to stay again later this year. Highly recommended.
Maureen B. from Dunedin, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in April, 2014 Excellent vacation as always. We decided to stay an additional night and the office informed us the villa was available. The office staff is very friendly and made the change very easy.
A guest from Port Charlotte, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in January, 2014 We absolutely love coming to Palm Island. It is a hidden jewel. We love the quiet peacefulness there! Can't wait to return next month!
Mark M. from Carrolton, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in December, 2013 My wife and I have been coming to Palm Island for almost 20 years and this was the first time in December. Although we could only spend the weekend, it was just as relaxing and beautiful as in the Spring and Summer. The Christmas decorations made it very festive and we liked the new menu at Rum Bay. It just wasn't long enough so we will see ya'll again in June. And for a week this time.
Clinton H. from Lakeland, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in November, 2013 We've been coming since 1984.Our unit was a little outdated, very nice though.I did notice the air filter was a little dirty, I have allergies so I always check.We also noticed the porch had mildew on the ceiling.Overall we had a great time, and will come again soon.The staff were great.
Rodger C. from Dallas, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in June, 2013 Did not care for the ferry mate. Busy chatting and not interested in moving the cars on and off efficiently. Discussed this with the front desk upon checkout. Why are there limits to use the Ferry? The Ferry runs whether I'm using it or not. Makes no sense. Also, Lose the Jet Skis. Destroys the atmosphere. Consider renting umbrellas and lounge chairs on the beach. You probably have but I would have enjoyed the option.I cherish an old Florida atmosphere since I'm a 4th generation native from Tampa living in Dallas. Last time I was at your property was in the 90's. Also I rented a house once from Islander Properties. its a toss-up on my preference. so much squandered potential at your property.
William S. from Osprey, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in April, 2013 While we had a great time at Palm Island, the villa we had was showing its age. It looked like a tired 80,s decorating job with worn, cheap flooring and anchient kitchen. The sofa and chairs were of very low quality and uncomfortable....Other that that, we had a great time and will be back.
Walter P. from Sarasota, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in August, 2012 Our experience was excellent as usual. I would suggest that you give some attention to the beach access route from our location. There are snakes in the grass and the path should be wider in order that one avoids contact with the snakes.
Rose R. from Miami, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in August, 2012 VERY NICE ROMANTIC VACATION GETAWAY. STAFF WAS VERY NICE. BEAUTIFUL BEACH WITH SEA SHELLS. RESTAURANTS HAVE THE FRESHEST SEAFOOD U COULD EAT. CANT WAIT TO GO BACK.
A guest from Punta Gorda, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in July, 2012 Great family vacation spot. Our rental unit was a bit out dated but very clean and served the purpose. Will definitely go back.
Andrew T. from Cincinnaci, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2012 We enjoyed everything about our stay. The room, golf cart, weather, and food were great! It was also nice to have the washer and dryer in the room. We will be back!
David B. from London, UK recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in April, 2012 I've been to Palm Island Resort about 10 times over the last 20 years. It's probably one of my favorite holiday destinations. My only request is that all properties are fitted with wireless internet as well as having wifi in the pool areas. It's sometimes necessary to do work, and wifi would really help.Thanks again.
Suzann T. from Leesburg, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in February, 2012 We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend and truly meant it was a 5 star weekend! I would recommend this getaway to anyone!
CAROLINE U. from N FORT MYERS, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in October, 2011 Everything was perfect except for Red tide. Red tide prevented me from walks on the beach, collecting shells and watching sunsets.Hopefully Palm Island will make a one bedroom available at a special rate for a near future stay.
Todd R. from Leesburg, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in October, 2011 My wife and I found Palm Island Resort through Expedia and Groupon and got a good deal to stay two nights. I cannot believe i didn't come across this resort before. We were pleasantly surprised and loved the location. It was so peaceful and everyone was so friendly. The bellman service was excellent and they went above and beyond to make sure the stay was nice. Kirby was very helpful and answered all the questions we had. The front desk was great and provided everything we needed. The Rum Bay Restaurant and the Johnny Leverocks Restaurant were outstanding. We found so many shells and sharks teeth on the beach and had a great time poolside as well. The villa was great and had flat screen tv's and a full kitchen. Everything was so clean and we hated to leave. We will definitely be back and will bring the family.
I thought Greg at the desk was very courtious on the phone
Laura L. from Venice, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 1 days in August, 2011 He was very helpful with directions and took the time to tell me about the amenties and I will recommend your property because of Greg.
2 days here made us feel like we had a 5 day vacation!!
A guest from St Petersburg, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 1 days in August, 2011 If Disney did Key West it would be Palm Island.....all the staff were friendly and did not ever give a negative response.
Frank W. from Tampa, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in August, 2011 First class all the way. Beautiful property and fantastic staff. Incredible beaches. If you want a quiet, secluded getaway, put Palm Island Resort on the top of your list.
Simon T. from Orlando, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in July, 2011 The Golf carts made the trip. Just be careful of bugs after dark because its very hard to see at that point. But everyone on the island was very nice and I had a great time.
Christine F. from Hobe Sound, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in February, 2011 I enjoyed my short stay- the environment idyllic. The condo was comfortable but the sheets looked very old and there were no spare sets in the closet or drawers.The toilet leaked after every flush and the stopper had to be reset, that was very annoying, should be checked out before clothes detergent in the unit- I was unsure if I needed to wash the kitchen or bath towels before leaving. Lighting in this unit could be improved - either too bright fluorscent (kitchen) or too low in LR and spouse likes to use olympic pool for laps, none made available. The bicycles could be newer but I guess for the sand road conditions were adequate. Great bell captain helped us get in , Jessica and Maggie at Coconuts were very helpful as well. Thanks
A guest from FL, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in August, 2008 We have stayed multiple times in Palm Island, and we never grow tired of it. It is the most relaxing place to be and the staff is extremely service oriented and flexible in so many ways. In our case, we had to ask for an extension in our check-out time because our family member got sick, and they were more than accommodating. They truly went beyond in our expectations and we will always look forward to coming back. The island and villas are beautiful, but the service is the icing on the cake. This is truly what makes the difference for us, and will continue to refer Palm Island to friends and family.
A guest from BRADENTON, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in June, 2008 We have stayed off and on at Palm Island for over 20 yrs. Whoever owns the condo we stayed in needs to bring it up to speed! The furniture was falling apart and the cushions were torn. The bed was the worst we have ever stayed in. It was good to see Walt M. again; the restaurant was super, as always. Sorry to be so negative; we really do love the place and we're only an hr. from home. Different condo owners DO make a difference.

I am so sorry that this unit did not meet your expections. We are looking forward to your next visit with us. DJ Cutler, Director of Hospitality Operations
Herbert M. from Miami, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in December, 2007 We found our stay, & the one last year, to be a very pleasant experience. Beautiful location,quiet, pleasant. The only negative feedback was the condition of the villa. Last year ('06) we had an exceptional villa. This past year was not as nice (location, & overall condition). The villas AC was not working properly, we found the bedroom did not cool properly & the bed itself was not comfortable. The previous year, the villa that we had was perfect. Location -view, and overall condition, made for an excellent vacation.
