Management problems A guest from Fort Myers, FL does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 3 days in March, 2016 Older building. Bathroom door knob locks you in. Electric for charging golf cart was dead. Cart died leaving us stranded. Water shut off for repairs with no warning. Bedroom had no window. While playing on the beach was confronted as being disruptive to neighbors. Im 68 years old. No other people around. Could go on and on. One or two old bitties 1/4 mile away with binocs who are bored with life spoil it all and management fails to fix problem.
Very Relaxing! Steve H. from Rockford, MI recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in February, 2016 Very enjoyable stay! Having the pool and the beach was great -- best of both worlds. Not a ton to do activity-wise on the island but if you're looking for a place to get away and relax and enjoy the views of the Gulf, this is great. We really enjoyed it!
Family Celebration A guest from Miami, FL recommends this property.
Stayed for 6 days in August, 2015 We chose Palm Island for a family reunion after hearing about it from a friend. We were 11 adults and three children 5 , 2 and 1 yrs. old, and rented two 3 bedroom units.One of the units was very well maintained and comfortable with beautiful views of the beach. The second unit , though closer to and with even better views of the beach , left a lot to be desired in terms of upkeep and comfort. The rugs were torn and dirty, the air filters filthy,the dining chairs needed to be redone etc, etc, etc... Despite that we all had a wonderful time.
ROOM FOR IMPROVEMENT Don K. from Plant City, FL recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in June, 2015 we have been staying on Palm Island -both in houses and on the resort for the past 25 years. Our experience was not the best this time- please call me on my cell for more informationthanks -Sharon Karr
Lovely Place to stay 1st Baptist Church W. from Pompano Beach, FL recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in October, 2014 Really enjoyed the property and the wonderful beach view. It was fun using golf carts to get from place to place.
NOT a good First Impression A guest from St. Petersburg, FL recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in June, 2014 We were so excited about our vacation to Palm Island. From their logo to the pictures on the internet we thought for sure we chose the right place for some much needed R&R. The most positive thing about our trip was the weather,beautiful sunsets and starry nights. The Palm Island resort staff either dont like working there or need some R&R themselves.--When we made our reservations we were told that we could come early and there would be a good chance of our room being ready early, so we got there around 12:45 and it ended up not being ready until after 5pm!. I was told nothing else was available and it wasnt until several frustrating phone calls that they offered us a complimentary meal while we waited longer.--Our villa was nice but was still DIRTY when we finally got into it (hair balls and left over food pieces on the floors and couch,drinking glasses with lipstick marks on them) I ended up vaccuuming and cleaning ALL of the dishes before we even unpacked.--At 7:50am the next morning we were awoken to the loud noise of a pressure washer! The pool patio furniture was being cleaned,but they didnt clean the pool sides that were all grimey and gray.--OVERALL the resort staff is NOT welcoming or friendly--they dont smile or act like they enjoy what they do (except for front desk staff and one very pleasant African American man who welcomes you when you park your car in the lot.)Even as something as simple as waving back when you pass by them in your golf cart. --We ended up picking up trash on the beach when we noticed it was still there from the day before Resort staff could definitely use some customer service lessons to make their guests feel like they are welcomed and wanted back.
Love Palm Island A guest from Venice, Florida recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in June, 2014 My family and I have been to Palm Island many times. This was the nicest unit yet. The cabinets are a little dated but we are on vacation so who cares. The unit was clean and the location is so close to the beach. The view from the back porch is incredible. Very roomy place! The throw rugs and curtains could be replaced but still not a big deal. Overall a great weekend !
A FEW DAYS ON PALM ISLAND A guest from Saint Petersburg, FL recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in May, 2014 OTHER THAN A BROKEN FRONT DOOR LEVER THE PROPERTY 1422 WAS WONDERFUL, LOCATION WAS FANTASTIC.THE RUM BAY RESTAURANT COULD USE A LITTLE SPRUCING UP AND PLEASE DO NOT SAY YOU HAVE HOT DRAWN BUTTER WHEN YOU ACTUALLY USE MARGARINE, YUK! WHEN WE COMPLAINED ABOUT THE AWFUL "BUTTER" OUR SERVER BROUGHT US A SECOND ROUND AND SHE DID NOT EVEN REALIZE MARGARINE IS NOT THE SAME AS BUTTER.
Beautiful weekend A guest from Kenosha, WI recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in October, 2013 Stayed at Palm Island for a wedding. Beaches and pool were perfect. Grills to use in pool area, beach chairs for the beach.

Our stay Debbie R. from Sarasota, FL recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in May, 2013 We had a wonderful time. I dealt with Steve...via the phone and he was wonderful to work with.We called on our way down and asked for an early check-in and were told that they would not know if we could or not and wait until we got there.When checking in, the girl upfront would not indicate if we could check in early or not...she was leaning towards us not being able to and did not look into it any further. Steve came up, check the computer and said the place was ready...just needed a final inspection. Thank goodness Steve was there.The bedroom door on the 3rd level got stuck, while I was inside the bedroom, I was not able to pull it open, and I had to wait two hours before someone came home to let me phone was downstairs. If there had been a fire...I may have gone up with in flames with the place. This was not looked like they had the problem before. We had a wonderful time...you are blessed to have Steve working there...and everyone was very nice. Would go again.Debbie Reid

Stayed for 6 days in December, 2011 From booking our vacation with Dena on the phone from handing in the keys at check out, our stay was a dream.

1422 needs a makeover Katy W. from Evanston, IL recommends this property.
Stayed for 5 days in November, 2011 Unit 1422 is very out dated and tired. the main tv is a joke. the furniture is unattractive, the bedrooms as well. Great loaction, just needs updating. love the island, just 1422 needs improvement.
Awesome Ladies Overnight Maudel H. from Kathleen, FL recommends this property.
Stayed for 1 days in October, 2011 I took my daughter and a friend for a ladies overnight stay, which of course was not long enough but just enough to make me know that I definitely want to come back. The staff members were professional and friendly, and the gentlemen (Kirby) that drove us to our room and to get our golf cart was vert professional and a true gentlemen. The accommodations were perfect and even though with just a one night stay and I didn't get to see and do very much, I guarantee and I'll be a return visitor. Thank you, Maudel

Stayed for 4 days in May, 2010 golf cart rentals which make the island doable are horrible and in bad shape. Unreliable and unhelpful almost rude help from coconuts!!
Best Kept Secret Along The West Florida Coast Richard M. from Valrico, FL recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in April, 2010 We have been coming to Palm Island for years. Each time we come there are more of us (grandchildren). We like the way things are, laid back non-commercial, people are friendly and we wish we could come more often. The beaches are clean and everyone seems to respect your efforts to preserve the wildlife on the Island. We almost feel like it's our own secret hideaway and we will definitly be back.
Magee's from Skaneateles, NY and Langhan's from Tampa, FL SHARON M. from SCANEATELES, NY recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in April, 2010 We love PI and this was our 4th visit to the resort. We were very happy with just about everything. However, it was disappointing that there were not enough sheets for the rollaway bed when we went to make it up late a night. When we called the next morning, asking for proper sheets, the person in housekeeping didn't even apologize. Since we were paying $400/night, we expected better. Also, a small suggestion, the unit we were in did not have enough coffee mugs for the amount of persons in our unit.
We have been coming to Palm Island for 11 years and we love it.We were there during a hurricane (not a good idea) and survive it DARLENE B. from BRANDON, FL recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in September, 2009 The staff has always been very nice and helpful. Iwas sorry to hear that Ann had retired [but happy for her)because I always booked with her,but I didn't have to worry because Bobbie was great.I look forward to next year. Thank You
