all good with one axception
William N. from Placida, FL does not recommend this property. Stayed for 7 days in February, 2015 5 star for everything but one. Golf cart rental for a week at $250.00 is way out of line.If the cart is used 3-4 hours a week it would be a lot.This is the only reason I wouldn't return and wouldn't recommend to oyhers others
Richard G. from St. Pete Beach, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in May, 2014 The villa was gorgeous and the grounds very well landscaped. The property is only accessible by water (ferry boat) and therefore is inconvenient to shopping, restaurants. We found no stores on the island for groceries and personal items, except the small convenience store, Coconuts. A golf cart is needed to get around. This isolation may be a desirable or undesirable feature.
A guest from Punta Gorda, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in February, 2014 The island is a great retreat if you know what to expect. Customer service is a stretch, and conserige is a joke. The employees are there to do a job and go home and they act like it. Upon checkout we left the extra room key in the unit in the packet it came in, when I told the front office lady she told me "Well....you are asked to bring all the keys back, and I wouldn't want you to get charged for it". I asked if she felt the housekeepers would steal the key and she just said again she didn't want me to be charged and she didn't know. Really? The pools are all private per set of units, but beware they do "activities" in the morning so don't plan on going to another pool your key won't work, you just have to wait it out. The units are clean, the beach is great, the food is bad but that's expected. We go here often but if they had a better staff we would go much more often.
Clement B. from Lakeland, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in May, 2013 We stayed in unit 5011, TV in Master Bedroom did not work, Water heater was turned off when we got to the unit, first couple of showers were with cold water. Overall we had a great time and enjoyed our stay. We will be back.

We do appreciate you bring these items to our attention so that they may be properly addressed. We look forward to welcoming you back in the future.
John C. from Lake Forest, IL recommends this property. Stayed for 10 days in March, 2013 We look forward to visiting Palm Island very year and staying in Bay Villa 5011. I only wish the quality of food were better at Rum Bay so we would not have to leave the island for a decent meal. This has been my only gripe for the last 12 years. the food quality continues to be extremely poor. Hopefully this will be addressed at some point.Otherwise we love everything about the resort!!
Willard S. from Naples, FL does not recommend this property. Stayed for 1 days in April, 2012 The picture on the 'cover' of this survey is misleading. No signing on channel(?) from IC. Guests with a bow rail on their boat cannot moor (bow in) at your too short finger docks. Staff is not trained to meet guests ariving by boat. No way to get baggage off dock to 'villa'.
Grace L. from Toronto, Onatrio recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in March, 2012 The condo was lovely and my family had a great time. It is our second time in Palm Island, and we were not disappointed!! Everyone on staff was excellent, friendly, and helpful. Thanks so much.
A guest from TAMPA, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in October, 2009 Very nice unit. Great get away for my son and I.
