Chuck R. from Winter Park, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2016 I never fills these out but thought it would be a good idea since we had some issues this time around. We have been coming to the resort for over 20 years, and with this trip I reserved an ocean front 2 bedroom superior in the 3700 building. When I received my paperwork, they moved us to a 2 bedroom behind the pool I believe in building 2000 area. No one even had the courtesy to call, or email us of the changes, much less say anything at the front desk when we arrived. As I know sometimes you run into problems with the rooms, but someone should have had the courtesy to communicate with us. We come to this island to relax and enjoy, and I always pick a room wit that intention of looking out into the gulf, not being behind a pool with all the noise. I see on your website you do not distinguish anymore between gulffront and gulf view. I think that is a mistake, because it definitely is not the same, and the prices are equal in value. To add fuel to the fire, we took the package with a golf cart. WE were running a little late, so I called the rental office, and asked if we do not get there by 6 since we already paid for the cart, would they please bring the key up to the front desk so that we could use the cart that evening. They were courteous and obliged but forgot to leave the key at the front desk. When we finally received the cart, it had to be returned because it would not keep a charge. We love coming here, and this will not keep us from coming back, but it also makes me feel that this should have never happened with a little effort on your part. We come to Palm island to have a stress less weekend, not add to the work weeks stress. One last thing to say, I called and argued with the office person about our room, and I feel she should have offered to make it right without me asking for a credit, which she gave me a free night.
Dennis K. from Trinity, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2016 No complaints. As always the accommodations and Staff were the best!!!Only concern...which is great for the owners and staff employees is the word appears to be out. Palm Island is the place to vacation. We noticed this started last year but each time we've come this year there were too many people. It seems like the common facilities are being stressed beyond their limits by many visitors who are not respecting the property. Perhaps the security patrol riding on their carts should do more than just...well, ride around on their carts. When renting a cart I read that only licensed drivers can operate the carts. While there we saw many instances of cart loads of people...sometimes too many people in the cart where the drivers could not have been over 12 years of age. Driving right past the "security carts"
A guest from Homestead, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2016 Overall, the stay was exemplary, with one exception. Only one car per villa was allowed into the parking lot, which was problematic for my family since two of the people in my villa were from a different city than me and my husband and we arrived at different times.
Paris E. from Camden, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in June, 2016 Very rocky start. Unit was in complete disarray. It had not been cleaned,beds not made etc. Supervisor sprang into action. Moved us to an upgrade and everything ran smooth after that.
A guest from Battle Creek, MI does not recommend this property. Stayed for 11 days in February, 2016 This trip was our third one in three years. Always a much anticipated trip. This time we had our daughter and granddaughter along for part of our stay. We had requested a beach villa (a condo on the beach) but due to a request from an owner, the condo promised us was not available. We did not receive notification prior to our arrival due to a wrong phone number on our records. However, two weeks prior to our arrival, we did receive a phone call from the concierge asking if there was anything we might need ahead of our stay. I pointed that out during our check-in but was told that is a separate entity from the reservations office. I must admit the unit we were given, was not "on the beach" but directly across from the pool which was quite noisy at times. Also, the unit was very "unfriendly" for visitors. A long list of what not to do as well as the majority of the cabinets locked particularly in the master bath. The kitchen was not well equipped with insufficient number of glasses, plates, etc.The overall cleanliness was just fine and it was convenient while my daughter and granddaughter were here for use of the pool. The service road behind the unit was quite busy and was rather noisy even through the evening hours.
Eric P. from Tampa, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in August, 2015 Leave your stress behind and get on Palm Island Time! Had another wonderful weekend with family on the best island resort ever! If you have not experienced, its a must. Once your car goes on the ferry and you leave mainland, stress melts away as you trade in your vehicle for a golf cart. Excellent staff, beautiful rentals! Thinking of buying now:)
Jay R. from Marlborough, MA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in May, 2015 Everything was fine with one large exception. We arrived at 3:15 and were informed that our condo was not ready for check in. I find this completely unacceptable all facilities should be ready if check in time is 3:00. I must admit that this was the first time this has happened in 8 years and I expect it will be the last as well
A guest from Ann Arbor, MI recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in April, 2015 Overall good experience, issues noted below.-Not enough staff to accommodate promised check in time of 3Pm (5:30 actual)-Wifi operational less than 50% of the time, strong signal but no service (Palm Island Wifi)-Back screen door broken-Slow/no water drain in bathroom sink-Shower not very clean
A guest from POWDER SPRINGS, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in June, 2014 This was our fourth trip to PI. We have ALWAYS had a fantastic time, and we have loved each trip. However, on this trip we were promised one villa with a direct ocean view when we booked the trip over the phone. When we arrived, we were placed in a different villa with an ok view over a pool. Rum Bay was still great, especially our Shark Tooth drinks!
A guest from Land O Lakes, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in August, 2013 We have visited Palm Island on four separate times in the past year. We always have a wonderful time and the villas have been wonderful until this last stay. This past stay was part of a Groupon package and it was my understanding that it included a deluxe villa. Clearly, we did not have a deluxe villa (we have always had a deluxe in the past). The unit was so outdated, the cabinets in the kitchen wouldn't close properly, the paint color in the bedrooms would blind you, and the furniture was horribly uncomfortable. When checking out I found out it was a standard unit rather than a deluxe. I felt kinda cheated since my Groupon indicated a deluxe villa but apparently you only get a deluxe if available. I will continue to visit Palm Island because it is an amazing place and my family and I love it, but I will make sure the room is a deluxe or superior moving forward because the standard villas are uncomfortable.
A guest from Wellington, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in August, 2013 Saw a write-up in our local Sunday paper. We had reservations elsewhere which fell thru and decided to try this resort and location. We are so glad we did - what a great family time we had. Looking forward to getting back there next year.
Michael G. from Fairfield Beach, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in July, 2013 I think only thing happen to use one friend miss place his cell phone at restraint and someone took it and no only took effort to get it back . The home that we stay was great
John H. from Liberty Township, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 9 days in June, 2013 Palm Island is one of our favorite places to bring our kids! It really takes you away from reality. Everyone is SO nice and I love all the activities they have for families. We loved being so close to the pool this year. We have come many times over the last 10-15 years, but this year was one of our favorites!
Thomas H. from St Petersburg, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 1 days in May, 2013 My wife and I where celebrating our pre-anniversary Weekend. We spent a peaceful and Relaxing time in the be directly in touch with nature and Meeting friendly People was just wonderful. People working in the Resort have been very friendly and helpful. This was second time we have been on Palm Island, and will be not the last time!
Property Manager Response: Response from Palm Island Resort Thomas, Congratulations on your Pre-Anniversary celebration! We love to have people come share special times at Palm Island Resort. We are always happy to hear that you found everything to your liking!! Please do come see us again?anytime!
A guest from Fairfield, CONN recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in April, 2013 THE PROPERTY WAS WONDERFUL BUT I HAD MADE A RESERVATION FOR THE ROMANCE PACKAGE AND THE PERSON VERY KINDLY GOT AN UPGRADE FO A 2 BR WHEN WE ARRIVED THEY HAD US IN A SUPERIOR 1 BR - NOT WHAT WE WERE PROMISED. THERE WAS MUCH CONFUSION TO CHANGE THIS AND IN THE PROCESS ALL THE EXPLANATIONS FOR THE VOUCHERS WAS VERY CONFUSING. THE UNIT WE WERE GIVEN WAS JUST OK - BEHIND THE POOL AND BBQ SO NOT AT ALL PRIVATE. THIS WAS OUR WEDDING NIGHT SO IT WAS DISAPPOINTING. TOO MANY PEOPLE INVOLVED AT THE DESK IN THIS ONE TRANSACTION. THE PLACE WAS PRACTICALLY EMPTY, CAN'T IMAGINE HOW THEY COPE IF IT WAS CROWDED!
Paul De Graaff P. from Scheidam, PA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in October, 2012 This year was my 8th stay on the Island.We choose it for the location and surroundings. We do fashionphotoshoots. It is wonderfull.The restaurant Rum Bay should be updated with more biological/vegetarian and healthy food.Also would i install wifi all over the resort.It creates free publicity by all people posting beautiful pictures on Facebook and other social media.It is at last 2012.I'll hope to be back soon on the Island.Great placePaul de Graaff Photographer Netherlands
Stephen S. from Miami, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in July, 2012 So we found this little slice of heaven thanks to a Living Social deal and fortuitous timing. We arrived on a Friday afternoon and left Sunday afternoon. Palm Island proper was beautiful and secluded yet surprisingly well equipped. The staff of the management company were wonderful and the Condo we stayed at was very well kept up and appointed. My only gripe was the lack of high speed internet. For the price of the resort I would expect them to include wireless internet access at no charge. Make sure you walk the beach at sunset and bring your camera ... this was a truly magical moment for me and was like the star atop the proverbial Christmas tree.
Mark F. from Seffner, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in May, 2012 My wife and I had not shared quality time away from home where we could connect with each other, nature and our marriage. Palm Island Resort provided all those things and more.
Alicia M. from Toronto, Ont recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in March, 2012 Palm Island has been our family favorite for the past 12 years! It is the dream vacation and wealways have a fantastic time, never have been disapointed in the villas, the island or the resort! We will always keep coming back!
A guest from Safety Harbor, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 1 days in August, 2011 I have visited Palm Island several times and I love the beauty of the Island! Finding a quiet beach is a rare find in Florida. That gives this location is a major plus. The only problem I experienced on this trip was a very nasty and rude ferry boat worker who yelled repeatedly at me for not understanding his directions for driving onto the ferry! It was senseless and unprofessional to address a patron that way and it almost ruined my trip. I did file a complaint against him and hope this does'nt happen to anyone else. Otherwise, everyone at the resort was pleasant and courteous.
A guest from Lutz, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2011 The beach villa we stayed in was spotless with new appliances and updated bathrooms. Palm Island Resort is very relaxing and perfect for those who love nature.
