A guest from Tampa, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in September, 2015 Our family has made many wonderful memories in Palm Island over the years, and we will be back. But if this was our first trip I am not sure that would be the case. This year we brought my father with us. I searched the selection of properties for hours and booked months in advance. I was thrilled that I found a villa that had two bedrooms with king beds on the first level of the unit for us and my father and a fun upper level with 4 beds for our kiddos. I booked it and made note with the staff that my father was coming for the first time and I wanted him to have a room on the first level with a king bed and his own bathroom. The unit was also advertised as having a grill, which impacted our menu planning. When we got there we found out we were assigned to another unit without prior notification/approval. The unit was in an area of the resort under construction. The pool was closed! The unit did have two first floor bedrooms and a great loft (which our kids LOVED). The trouble was that my father's room had twin beds, not a king. We talked to the staff about the problem. They kind of acted like they did us a favor by putting us in a newer unit! They said that they would have housekeeping convert the twin beds into one large bed, but then never got around to it. The unit also did not have a grill so we had to resort to less than optimal alternatives to prepare certain meals. Despite the issues we had a great time enjoying a beautiful beach with no crowds and look forward to coming again next year.
Kenann C. from Clearwater, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in September, 2015 I've been coming to Palm island for 30 years and it is beautiful, as always. Our condo was updated with nice finishes. Great time with good friends. Our pool was closed which was a bummer We had to use a neighboring pool and over looked an empty hole with a pump running 24/7. We were not told in advance of the pool closure. It would have been nice to be offered a discount or free golf cart but when I asked the desk clerk said no. Too bad.
A guest from McHenry, IL recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in May, 2015 We were here for three nights. Great venue for a wedding, intimate size. Recommend renting golf carts as depending upon the location of your lodging could be long walk. It was fun driving around the island with them. Very quiet which was nice. Rental was nice except on third floor, lots of stairs. Lots of space for large group. Beds could have been more comfortable. Loft sleeping not the best, hard to regulate temp up there to be comfortable. Great pool and views. Wonderful shells to be had on the beach walks. Overall, had a great time!
Lloyd K. from Nappanee, IN recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in March, 2015 Everything about the Palm Island Resort is just amazing! The wildlife, fishing, beach, and definitely the sunsets????We hope to make this our annual vacation getaway! I highly recommend the kayak tour!
A guest from Anchorage, AK recommends this property. Stayed for 10 days in December, 2014 We had a very good vacation. Our group included pre teens to university students as well as parents and grand parents. We all managed to have an excellent vacation. Our unite was spacious; the kitchen had a good layout and it had a pantry/laundry room for storage.The dishes and pots where adequate, however the knifes where very poor. It made cooking a little difficult at times. Also there was not enough dish, dishwasher and laundry soap for the duration of the our visit.All these are minor issues which could be easily fixed. There where plenty of activities for all. Walking and playing on the beach, swimming, tennis and kayaking are easy to do from the unit. We had an excellent vacation.
Geraldine K. from Bradenton, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in October, 2014 The experience was wonderful. My book club ladies wanted the beach experience that I haveconveyed to them about Palm Island and they were not disappointed. thank you once again
Camille R. from Sanford, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in August, 2014 Although our AC unit failed twice and our refrigerator took 24 hours to work, we were overly satisfied with our stay and can't wait to come back!
Richard Ransdell Family - Palm Island Resort Review
Richard R. from Nineveh, IN recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2014 Overall, the experience was good. Condos were also rented by my two brothers and sister as we had a week long family reunion. Our condo was nice although the comfort of the beds was disappointing. The kitchen and bathrooms were excellent. The pool experience was excellent particularly with the cabana. The six seat golf cart was fun although it ran sluggishly at times. The ocean view was excellent. The capability to get off the island to do other things was appreciated. The tarpon fishing and flat boat fishing were fun. The seven nights for the price of five nights seemed like a good value. Dinner at Rum Bay was good. Check-in was hectic with several families checking in at the same time. I look forward to our next visit.
Patti H. from Alva, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in May, 2014 We always have a fantastic time at this resort and make a point to go at least once a year. We are never disappointed. The rates have steadily climbed over the years but we continue to go.This is a place to go if you want to do NOTHING BUT RELAX and have absolutely no guilt.I do have one major complaint. They have recently instituted a new POOL CARD system. You need a card to get into the pool area. I don't understand why this is necessary. You are also required to push a button to get OUT of the pool. This is very awkward if you have your hands full. (The out button is not close to the gate.)The worst part is the fact they you are only given one key card per unit. We had seven adults in our unit and only one card! If someone had taken the card down to the beach, the others could not get into the pool. If your group had gone to the pool and were in the pool, they had to get out of the pool to let you in! Having only one card was quite a nuisance and unacceptable. I actually had to climb over the fence, as a last resort one day. I am 62! and the fence is quite high! Other than this fairly major complaint, we had a wonderful time as usual. One other minor issue... I cannot seem to tell when the rates change. I would think that June would be off-season, but the rates were about the same as when we went in November. I think locals in the off-season should get a bit more of a deal or at least a discount on the golf cart rental. Despite this, we are planning our next visit for this November.
Allison L. from London, England recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in December, 2013 I liked the amount of people this condo could sleep however, I would have liked to know in advance that the upstairs rooms do not have doors. Also, not having wifi was really problematic for us as my husband had to work. The property was very clean but it appears like termites may be on the screened balcony so we weren't able to use that space.
Caroline U. from North Ft Myers, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in August, 2013 Palm Island Resort has many faces for me.From time to time PLResort embraces me as my Sanctuary, quiet, serene, cosmically charging my body, mind and spirit. I return to running my companies refreshed and impassioned.When my children and granchildren join me the experience is unbelievably blessed. We eat, play, look for sharks teeth, read afternoon stories and all sleep well.Palm Island Resort has a small town charm. The staff relishes in the opportunity to enhance your stay any way possible.My advice is never check out on Sunday. Monday's are so delicious alone...
Robert S. from Wintergarden, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 1 days in July, 2013 The big problem was the amount of rain and our master bedroom leaked terribly. Other than that the stay was great and the unit was wonderful. The resort compensated us for the problem.
Robert S. from Wintergarden, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in July, 2013 We love coming to visit Palm Island! /Our unit this time was beautifully updated in every way. T he only problem was the master bedroom ceiling leaked! There were no other units open so we had to stay. they came in each day and cleaned it up and adjusted our bill but I hope this is remedied in the future,
A guest from Venice, FL does not recommend this property. Stayed for 3 days in June, 2013 We go to Palm Island annually and visit for the beach and the peacefulness it provides. This trip we had a group of 8 and had come prepared to have fabulous meals prepared in our condominium. We had lobster, shrimp and clams for one evening and steak for another evening. For 8 people this was about $350 worth of groceries. We checked into our unit, which was beautiful and very well decorated and appointed. Our goal was to unload the groceries and head to the beach, which we did. After three hours at the beach we came back to find that ALL of the food was warm as the refrigerator had stopped working. All of our food had been destroyed. The maintenance man came and was VERY friendly and apologetic bringing us ice and coolers however it was a little too late for our food. Within a day and after a visit from a repairman the refrigerator was fixed. After a day and a visitor from a repairman the refrigerator was fixed. Other than that the condo and beach and resort was pristine and lovely. The nicest people we encountered were our luggage assistance - he is always welcoming and fabulous as well as the maintenance man. The people at the Coconuts where we rented the golf cart seemed annoyed and like we were bothering them each time we went into the store. We love Palm Island and we go there for the beach and the laid back atmosphere. We tolerate the hiccups and average customer service but I would be hesitant to refer due to these instances.
A guest from Valrico, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in May, 2013 Had a great time

Barbara W. from Charlton, MA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in May, 2013 Awesome.......awesome! Only fault is that there is no privacy in the upstairs loft, which could be a porblem for some people. It was very clean & had everything we needed. Would highly recommend it to anyone who wishes a truely vacation experience!!!

STEPHEN H. H. from AUGUSTA, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in April, 2013 Another great vacation at Palm Island Resort. The staff is very friendly and helpful and the villa was clean and comfortable.
A guest from Odessa, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in April, 2013 We had a wonderful experience. Everyone was friendly. The unit was nicely decorated and comfortable. The only suggestion would be to organize the loft area used as a storage and the laundry. Visible eye sores with painting cans and furniture stored. The small area could be a cozy reading area
Mike S. from Trenaity, Florida recommends this property. Stayed for 1 days in March, 2013 We liked it some much, we are going to buy something from Penny.Please add us to any email blast, specials, newsletters, etcPlease correct my address:Mike Simpson1816 Lakestone DriveTrinity, FL cell
A guest from Katonah, NY recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in March, 2013 We love this unit, the location is perfect and the size is great for our family! The bathroom renovations were lovely, and the kitchen is fabulous! However, the beds were very uncomfortable, and none of us slept so well. As much as we love this unit, we'd think twice about booking it for this reason.
A guest from Princeton, NJ recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2012 We've been coming to Palm Island Resort since 1989, and have always enjoyed the off season months. There were a few issues this year such as a water main break causing no water to be available, a broken TV in the main room, and a short power outage. Fortunately, all these issues were resolved quickly and professionally and interferred minimally with our overall positive island experience.
George M. from Bradford, PA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2012 Beautiful villa with the pool and beach nearby. The staff was very accommodating and friendly. They made our stay and our son's wedding wonderful! Thank you!
Family trip to celebrate the wedding of a relative.
James H. from Leesburg, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in June, 2012 Overall experience was very good, however constant problems with hot water was an issue. Stayed in a 3 bedroom unit and every shower or bath would trip the electrical breaker. Also use of hair dryer in bathroom would also trip the breaker. Last day of our visit the flat screen tv had sound but no picture.
Mary B. from Barrington, IL recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in March, 2012 Great Location. Loved the rental. I think you could improve on bed linnens and cleanliness. Nice upgrades in the bathrooms. We love Palm Island Resort!!
A guest from JACKSONVILLE, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in January, 2012 We had an amazing time at Palm Island, as usual. It's a fantastic location that really does force you to get on "island time" and enjoy every minute. We had a little mixup when we arrived--the rental we had reserved was not exactly as described when I was making the reservation, but this was easily changed when we checked in.
A guest from Spring Hill, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in September, 2011 We had an amazing vacation! I cannot begin to put into words how wonderful, relaxing and fun this trip was. Can't wait for the next groupon!
A guest from Carrollton, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in July, 2011 We love Palm Island and come back year after year. Each time we leave,we are already planning the next trip. It is great!
Palm Island a perfect island to get away from it all
