A guest from Canadian Lakes, MI does not recommend this property. Stayed for 3 days in February, 2017 Our stay at the resort was fine. It is a beautiful area and super quiet! For some reason We were charged an additional fee of $55.35 (resort said it was not them) to my debit card. Still need investigating when I return home. Must be a hidden fee from Home Away. The resort is beautiful, but I would not stay in that unit. The condo unit needs attention! We would go back just not to that condo unit. Talking to other guests their condo unit was in good condition with no issues. The resort staff was great!
Kim H. from Carnel, IN recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in December, 2016 We stayed at Palm Island for a wedding. What a gorgeous secluded place. Everyone was very friendly. Our condo was a little dated, but would stay in it again in a heartbeat. The location of it was great with easy access to the beach, pool and Rum Bay. Thank you Palm Island! We will be back!!
A guest from Theodore, AL recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in September, 2016 My boyfriend and I loved the resort. The atmosphere was quaint and very laid back. We particularly loved riding around on the golf cart and spending time on the beach at Stump Pass. My only problem with my stay was the particular villa that we stayed in. I do realize that I requested a standard unit, but it was completely outdated and didn't have a clean feeling. The air conditioner was not working all that great either. We were there for a wedding, so I was able to see multiple other villas. Our villa was nowhere close to being as nice. I will recommend Palm Island Resort to my friends, just not that particular villa.
A guest from Valrico, Florida recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2016 Celebrating a Birthday wanting to get away! Staff was Amazing from the first phone call, once we arrived every member of staff was smiling, friendly and very accommodating! We booked the kayaking tour with Kris she Was Wonderful! Our unit had Spectacular Views!!! Although some guest stated the unit was dated we Loved it! it was Very Warming and we felt Cozy not stuffy!!! Would stay there without any hesitation!!!
Stephen M. from Hudson, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in May, 2016 We have been going here for 20yrs. That in itself should tell you how we feel about this place.We want to try and keep this our little secret but realize that for it to stay in business people have to know about it so we tell everyone.When we are there we feel like we're a thousand miles away. It's so quiet and pristine, the best shell collecting beach and welcoming place.Whoever is is in charge of seeing to it that employees make you feel welcome has done his/her job well.
Barbara J. from North Port, Florida recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in March, 2016 I returned to stay at Palm Island resort because my Late Husband and I loved to stay , He was battling cancer and this was a favorite place for peaceful beach time !! It was my time alone to return and enjoy the peaceful Walks on the beach and search the soul!! The Villa was comfortable and the view was so beautiful and staff always friendly and helpful!!
A guest from Climax, Michigan recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in February, 2016 We enjoyed our two night stay at the resort so much. From the informative welcome at the Reception to the friendly check-out, it was lovely. The reseort is beautiful, quiet, peaceful -- and manages to be upscale without being stuffy or intimidating. We had a great view and comfortable accommodations. Our unit, and I realize they are all different owners and decor, was nice. My ony suggestion would be that the chairs on the balcony are in need of replacement. The beach was wonderful -- just what you dream of. I went to yoga (the instructor is wonderful and lovely) and we went to a nature walk/talk that was offered mid-day too which was also great and educational and fun. The restaurant was "just right" and offered many choices. We took the water taxi to the mainland one night to the other restaurant which was also nice, but a bit more crowded. Be careful to communicate clearly with the boat taxi about when you want to return (we had a near miss due to communications, but made it fine).
A guest from Tarpon Springs, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in November, 2015 Stayed in room 3524. It was very tidy and stocked with all the necessary amenities. One thing I will say is that the furniture and fixtures seemed very old, like they haven't been upgraded since the 90's. This place is great to stay if all you want to do is relax and not do much other than go to the beach. I liked their on-site restaurant and bar and complimentary water taxi to their other restaurant off the island. The staff was friendly and nice, always available to help with whatever we needed.
Jim B. from Coconut Grove, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 1 days in October, 2015 It was excellent. We had our wedding here and it was a very enjoyable experience. The staff did a wonderful job making everything a dream come true.
Amanda B. from Lakewood, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in September, 2015 We stayed at the resort for a wedding. The resort is quiet and relaxing and perfect for a large group. Our villa was nice (just a standard) and the facilities were great. I would suggest better paths to the beach, but I also understand the need to keep everything natural. At times, we felt that the wedding party were the only guests on the island! I am sure this is because it was a down time.Every single person from the resort was friendly and genuinely helpful.
A quiet, restful, and refreshing place to vacation
A guest from Placida, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in February, 2015 We made Palm Island Villa our home away from home for a week in a comfortable one bedroom villa. We were on the 2nd floor and could see the ocean and sunsets from our lanai or living room window. Whether walking, riding bikes or golf cart, you can take a peaceful walk all through the resort. No cars are allowed beyond the registration station. Gathering shells and walking the beach or island paths occupied much of our time, but the ride on the water taxi, seeing the egrets nest and dolphin was also enjoyable. All staff we encountered were super helpful and professional. The food, setting and service was great at the Island Bay Rum Restaurant and the mainland restaurant, Leverocks, reached by water taxi. There are many other activities available including tennis, golf, fitness center.
Diane G. from Tarpon Spring, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in November, 2014 In a word, "Excellent." This time we stayed for a long weekend, everything, including the weather was perfect. This was one of many, many trips to Palm Island.
Paul W. from Oldsmar, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in October, 2014 A calming, beautiful area reminding us of the way florida beaches were more like when we were growing up. natural beauty that remains in place today.Buildings that blend in well to the surroundings.
Priscilla K. from Orlando, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in September, 2014 My husband and I had a wonderful time. The accommodation was a bit dated, but we enjoyed the quiet and natural beauty of the property. We are definitely planning a return visit next year.
Lisa M. from Palmetto Bay, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in September, 2014 My husband and I had been working a lot and needed a break! Palm Island Resort was exactly what we were looking for. The condo was located with a fabulous view of the Gulf. Service was great. We truly enjoyed the guided kayaking tour. We plan to return to the island again!
A guest from Oviedo, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in August, 2014 The room's couch had brown stains on it and looked like it was pulled off the side of the road from someones trash pile in the 70's. I had to lay towels on it to sit. We left some baby teething toys in the freezer and called when we got home. Instead of management going and looking for it, they called housekeeping and they said they saw nothing. I had put them in the freezer consciously before we left to take with us on our ride home. We had already packed everything, I just threw them in the freezer to cool, but forgot to grab them as we walked out. I was disappointed as those teething toys(3) were at least $40. Other than that, the beach was beautiful and the view was nice. Everyone was friendly and accommodating! I was just disappointed in the dirty furniture and the disservice with the toys.
Thomas G. from Tampa, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in June, 2014 I have been coming to Palm Island for 20 years. I love this place. I stayed in unit 35-24, first time, and thought it was very nice. I had some difficulties in getting the air conditioner working to an adequate level, 74 degrees, upon check-in. It was only after repeated requests and a demand that the issue be addressed on the night of my check-in that it was. The AC guy came and it took him awhile to find the problem, but he did manage to get the system working to an adequate level.
A guest from Greenwitch, CT recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in May, 2014 We are looking for property on the island and it is so convenient and nice to stay at the resort. Everyone is beyond helpful and friendly and the property and beach is just beautiful. Our only complaint is that the unit we stayed in was in great need of repair. Broken cabinets and old appliances. If they update, it will be perfect. Can't wait to return...thank you.
A guest from Clermont, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in April, 2014 We have spent many years looking for REAL Florida. Palm Island is a true resort to escape to starting with a ferry crossing, no traffic and perfect peace and quiet. Traffic is limited to golf carts only. The beach and the gulf are beautiful and the resort is beautifully manicured. Total peace and quiet.
Joseph S. from Niagara Falls, NY recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in April, 2014 after a late arrival at 9:15 pm and an understaffed rental car facility at Punta Gorda airport we were rushed to get to palm Island due to the fact the ferry stopped service at 11pm. We arrived right at 11pm and ferried over to the island ,only to find that there were no restaurants open, we got up early to have breakfest in the resort restaurant, they did not open til 11:30 am. But after this rocky start, we found the resort to be absolutely a great, place to relax, with beautiful views and a very nice and clean condo. If youn are looking for a quiet,and almost remote setting, this is the place. The ferry is a very interesting set up. We would definately stay here again, friendly and helpful staff, and great accomadations. Restaurant needs some help.
Lawrance H. from St. Paul, MN does not recommend this property. Stayed for 7 days in February, 2014 Unit was very run down-no updates in >20 years. Old crusty carpet with burned iron stain. Ice maker broken and not replaced. None of keys worked in door lock-frame warped? Have been to Palm Island many times but was definitely disappointed in being assigned this unit.
William P. from Fort Myers, Florida recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in November, 2013 Spent a long weekend out at Palm Island and stated in one of the 6-plex Beach Cottages with my Wife. What a great discovery this place was (our 1st visit). Secluded, serene, quiet, relaxing, and beautiful describes the place well. The only knoocks we could even give the stay was the the 1BR unit we stayed in was just a little musty smelling, but otherwise was clean and fully stocked for a families long term use. The restaurant on the Island was reasonable priced and served great meals (we ate there 3 times). The local store is very limited in supplied, but if you pack accordingly, you won't need much that would warrant a trip off of the island. Highly recommend!
A guest from Venice, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 1 days in September, 2013 Our room was beautiful and the view was breath taking. I felt your rate for a one night stay was rather high especially since it's not even season yet. We were there for a vow renewal and we spent very little time at the resort. Check in at 3 and out by 11 the next day. It would have been nice to have an earlier check in time so we could have explored the resort and perhaps taken advantage of some of the ammenities.We would love to return for a longer period of time but it was just to expensive for us.However we will recommend the resort to our friends who come down from Connecticut.
Jon R. from Sunrise, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in August, 2013 There couldn't have been a better choice for our 5 year anniversary. My girlfriend stayed at Palm Island Resort when she was a kid, and her grandparents recommended the resort when I had mentioned that I wanted to surprise her with a vacation. We had the Romance Package: consisting of a Lobster Picnic with wine on the beach, Dinner at Leverocks on the mainland, and a golf cart rental for our stay. Watching the beautiful sunset on such an amazing island was definitely the highlight of our vacation. We stayed in a 1 bedroom villa that overlooked the ocean Just minutes away. By far, the best staff of any resort we have been to.
A guest from Tampa, FL does not recommend this property. Stayed for 2 days in June, 2013 We were expecting a "resort style" or an "upscale" stay; however the experience was "below average." The villa was not clean and the resort was boring. Would not recommend for a young family. Not worth the money.
Zaida C. from Davie, Florida does not recommend this property. Stayed for 2 days in June, 2013 The property needs to be updated not to mention the roaches found in the unit. The furniture is old and dirty the rugs are also dirty I would not recommend this place to a family or friend the staff was nice but the overall expirence was not the best. My sister rented aunit as well and found a frog in the bathroom while she was bathing the baby. it is a shame the place has not been kept up nicely.
Richard K. from Palmetto Bay, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in June, 2013 I truly enjoyed my stay on the island. It was my first time visiting Palm Island and will definitely return. Thank you@
Joann B. from Odessa, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in April, 2013 The reservation reps should adv people how to actually get to the island if bringing boat and that if we choose to use the marina that they close at 5pm. Other than the extra hour and half we took trying to figure out how to take the boat to the island it was a great stay, outstanding view, great staff and just beautiful!
Diane K. from Hudson, OH does not recommend this property. Stayed for 8 days in March, 2013 We have been coming to Palm Island and Don Pedro Island for the last 25 years! This condo was by the far most disappointed I have been in a rental either place! Carpet filthy! Primitive fridge with no ice machine! Furnishings dirty and in need of replacement or cleaning. Bedspread dirty, stove fan broken, family room fan missing a piece. Reported all to front desk. Very disappointed we weren't not put into a nicer unit as repeat customers! Unit not worth the price!!!!
Jean H. from Weymoth, MA recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in March, 2013 but villa was old; for price could have been more updated! Also walk on ferry should run later; had to to bring car back and forth to go to dinner off island at Leverocks; seems unnecessary!!
Joseph P. from Bradenton, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in March, 2013 The only disparaging comment would be the older guests or residents that did not like children at the pool (or on the property in general). Segregation might be an option for people with no family.
Brian G. from Secerna, MD recommends this property. Stayed for 1 days in March, 2013 We jumped away to the island for a night, just to get away from the hustle and bustle. Had a great time shelling and swimming in the heated pool, as the temps were cold in early March.
the place is beautiful. we had a wonderful time. loved the islan
A guest from ORLANDO, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in December, 2012 Wonderful place to rest. When we first pulled to the ferry to go the island, Chris, one of the attendant was very rude.
A guest from Miami beach, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 1 days in October, 2012 Palm Island is the best place ever to disconnect with the world, recharge and reconnect with your loved ones. Pristine beach, very quiet, great property, nice staff. I've been there 3 times and can't wait to go back again!
A guest from Lagrange, KY recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in August, 2012 Golf carts are very outdated and in need of upgrade.Ther furniture AND bed in the villa was very very hard and uncomfortable.Gusts should not have dogs on the island.
A guest from Winter Garden, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in August, 2012 My wife and I went to the resort for the first time to celebrate our anniversay. The staff was very friendly. The room was extremely clean and well stocked. We had read reveiws about how many shells were on the beach, but no comments can prepare you for how MANY shells there are; so many beautiful colors and kinds that you can literally "hunt" for hours in a 100 yard section. Since cars aren't allowed in the resort it was very quite and slow paced. Would absolutely come back again for a couples weekend but will probably have to bring the kids next time after they saw all of the shells.
A guest from Land Of Lakes, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in October, 2011 We were very happy with the resort. The resort is laid back and beautiful. The staff was excellent. The only reason there are not all five stars is that the beach was not cleaned up of dead fish. There were quite a few that had been there for some time. That was really the only disappointing thing about the resort!
A guest from St. Cloud, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2011 We love Palm Island. Have been coming for years. Was disappointed this year in the reservation process. Tried to get reservation made via email when specials were being offered only to be told later by phone that the offers were no longer available for that week. Web site should be more detailed about availablity.
Steven T. from Tampa, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in July, 2011 Everything was great especially the private beach view. The private island feel gave us the mood to escape everything. The only thing they should mention is the numerous amount of mosquitoes at night.
A guest from Englweood, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in April, 2011 Beautiful white beach, a small pristine island mostly traveled by golf carts, gopher tortoises everywhere. A quiet tropical getaway that is a great way to relax and rejuvinate.
Antonina B. from Evansville, IN recommends this property. Stayed for 1 days in March, 2011 This was our second time on Palm Island. We absolutely love going there. It is a wonderful place to experience. The food, however, is below average at the restaurant on the Island and Leverocks. I don't see how the restaurant can advertise their famous ribs and then serve you dry, boring, not very good ribs. Very dissappointing. Everything else, however, is amazing. I just love the pool.
Donald M. from Tampa, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in June, 2010 The bedroom was hot and did not cool down complelely the first night of our stay. We had to drop the thermostat the to low 70's to keep the bedroom somewhat cool. The unit need some wall repair work around the washer/dryer and paint. The dryer did not heat. Not sure if this problem might have been operator error. Palm Island Resort is a unique property. The best combination of beach and number of people I have ever found. We will return! Thank You
A guest from Eden Prarie, MN recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in March, 2010 This was our first time at Palm Island Resort. We found the people in the office to be very accommodating...we had a couple little problems and they were taken care of immediately with a really good attitude and response. The unit we were in was very clean but not updated (the furniture was old). We felt that the property was also very well maintained and clean. The ONLY big disappointment was the sheets! They looked like they were homemade...very old and tired! They were limp....... actually "pilled" from too much wear and not even ironed! I requested another set and they were exactly the same! I would love to see you invest in new sheets for the units! Having a good night's sleep on quality sheets would be a treat!
This is a true paradise and we found the staff extremely helpful and our accomadions were perfect. Our condo was immaculate and
CHARLES M. from FT WAYNE, IN recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in February, 2010 We'll definitely be returning!!!!

Property Manager Response: Response from Palm Island Resort Dear Mr. Bonner, Thank you for taking the time to respond to our survey. We look forward to welcoming you back on your next visit to Palm Island. DJ Cutler, Director of Hospitality Operations
A guest from TAMPA, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 1 days in May, 2009 We had, as usual, a wonderful stay on Palm Island. The only glitch was when the air-conditioning went out in our unit and the indoor temperature shot up. Luckily, there was a place to put us for the night so we traipsed several buildings over in our pajamas and went to sleep. Packing the next morning was brutal with no A/C so we wore bathing suits to get the job done. And will we go back? Absolutely. Even mechanical failure cannot keep us away.
Property Manager Response:
Dear Mr. Collins, Thank you so much for taking the time to let us know about your experience. We look forward to your next stay with us! DJ Cutler, Director of Hospitality Operations
A guest from Pinellas Park, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in October, 2008 The unit was in need of an upgrade in the kitchen and bathroom. The furnishings were adaquite for the price and the view was great. Close to restaurant and amenities. Very quite!
KAREN S. from PLACIDA, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in April, 2007 Our unit was very outdated...cabinets in very bad no ice cube trays or ice, only 2 hangers. For the price charged, we would expect a unit in better overall condition. We love coming to Palm Island and hope next time we'll have a better unit.
