January stay review
A guest from Sarasota, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in January, 2017 Overall the experience was great. The tall bearded man greeting guests (I didn't get his name)could benefit from customer service training. A smile would've gone a long way. He didn't talk much and did not appear as though he planned to go out of his way to make us feel welcome/comfortable. A simple change in demeanor and friendliness would probably benefit your guests (and him as he would probably get better tips). Keith, on the other hand, helped us up to the condo with our bags and couldn't have been more pleasant. We could see how guests would truly appreciate interaction with that young gentleman. The condo was well maintained and fully stocked. We would suggest getting the carpet replaced or at least cleaned. The grounds are clearly well maintained. The Rum Bay restaurant staff, coconuts staff and front office staff were great. We look forward to a return trip!
Cindy D. from Treasure Island, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in September, 2016 There's something about being transported on the ferry to this island that immediately lowers the blood pressure, removes all signs of stress and puts a smile on your face. The Gulf breeze, warm sand, and serene setting combined with lovely comfortable accommodations make for a perfect getaway, even for Floridians who take it for granted. The staff is cheerful and the food fantastic. What more could you ask for?
A guest from Miami, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2016 The villa was really great. The view was amazing, the proximity to the beach was perfect. My only complaint is that the beds in both the master bedroom and the second bedroom downstairs with the two twin beds were extremely uncomfortable. Woke up every morning feeling like I slept on a slab of concrete, that's how hard the beds were. Please consider using more comfortable matresses.
Kenneth C. from New Port Richery, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in October, 2015 Great weather, great resort, great people at front desk. Wonderful beach, good food at Rum Bay and just a great stay for our 32nd time!
Leanne J. from Tarpon Springs, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in October, 2014 This is the 8th time we've stayed at Palm Island, and it is always such a lovely experience. No matter what time of year we come, we always feel like the only one's on the island! The grounds are immaculate and the amenities outstanding! Our unit was a little more run down than it was when we stayed there a few months ago in May. However, we're certain the problems will be fixed, and it won't deter us coming again in 2015.
A guest from Ft. Wayne, IN recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2014 Excellent location and view of the gulf coast. Property was clean but bedding covers were stained and worn. Carpet stained and worn. Otherwise, kitchen was well equipped.
Patrica W. from FRANKLAND, IN recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2014 Loved kayaking in the bay. The beach was amazing with picturesque sunsets! Condo was updated and very comfortable with sweeping views of the gulf and beach. Enjoyed this stay and rebooked for next year! Rum Bay grouper and special mixed drinks were delicious.
Candie C. from New Port Ritchey, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in June, 2014 Had a great time! Pool area and grill all very nice and clean. Cooked out every evening after spending all day at the beach and driving around site seeing on our golf carts.
Leanne J. from Tarpon Springs, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in May, 2014 This was our sixth time to stay at the resort and as always it was perfect. It is our family 's favorite vacation. We hope to return again in the fall. Palm island is a hidden treasure wherevyou can truly get away and relax in the untouched beauty of God's creation. We love it!
A guest from Cary, IL recommends this property. Stayed for 10 days in December, 2013 We loved the has been updated very nicely. The only issue we had (I explained this to Marty) was that the men in the lower unit were smokers and when they smoked outside the porch, the smell always drifted up to us.
Alicia M. from Toronto, Ont recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in October, 2013 We have always truly enjoyed our stay at PI. On our most recent visit our Villa was a bit disappointing due to it's wear and we found a cockroach in one of the bedrooms. The overall resort was fantastic, and staff truly amazing. Ribs at Rum Bay are our favorite,, but service and quality of food was better on the weekend than mid week. We are returning next Thursday and hope our next unit will be a step up from last week. As you see, this is our family and friends favorite spot in Florida, we have been returning to PI Resort for the last 10 years,so you are doing something right! It is truly heaven!
Rhonda A. from Christmas, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in September, 2013 Our villa was quite accomodating. It was clean and had all the convieniences of home. It was off season so it wasn't crowded which was nice! The bellmen with the golf cart was usually pretty prompt, can't imagine the busy season!! Overall great experience. Hope to return!!
A guest from Riverview, Florida recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in August, 2013 I have been visiting this property for over 10yrs. At my recent stay, the pools were not clean, the front office staff leave a lot to be desired. The manager Stephen is awesome, but his front desk staff, not so much. I had an issue that needed to be addressed, it took my calling over 4 times to have it resolved, and still today, 3 days later, I still do not know the outcome. If you want a "weekend getaway", this is the place to be, only if you can overlook the rudeness at the front office and not expect to have issues be addressed immediately. It is very peaceful if only you have no dealings with the front office ,Marty in particular!
A guest from Carrollton, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2013 Barefoot in Paradise was the title of a magazine article that introduced us to Palm Island Resort. We try other places, but always come back to Palm Island! We love it here!
A guest from Tampa, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2013 the kitchen in this unit was remodeled to allow for accessibility with an island in the center. This made it very enjoyable; with so many people in the unit we didn't get in each other's way.
A guest from Punta Gorda, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in May, 2013 Our villa was beautiful! Better than we could have expected! We loved being so close to the beach, having an easily accessible and nicely maintained pool, and especially enjoyed our villa. The only complaint is that a couple of staff members at coconut point (where you rent equipment) could be friendlier and some of the bikes updated. Other than that, great experience!

A guest from Cape Coral, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in January, 2013 THE BEACH IS RIGHT THERE! GO OUT THE DOOR AND THERE IT IS--BEAUTIFUL, CLEAN,UNCROWDED, RELAXING, EASY-PACED, NOT OVER COMMERCIALIZED, FRIENDLY PEOPLE,JUST MAKES YOU FEEL SO GLAD TO BE THERE.

Jeffrey F. from Lakeland, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in December, 2012 My family had a wonderful reunion at a resort with many great memories. Thanks for exceeding our expectations.
A guest from Thonotossa, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in September, 2012 We had a great stay at Palm Island! The villa we stayed in was huge, beautiful, clean, right on the water - it was perfect! There was something to do for everyone. My husband enjoyed fishing while I enjoyed the sun at the beach and then we both enjoyed kayaking and the pools. The staff was very helpful and nice throughout the whole resort! We will definitely be returning next year and I can't wait!!
A guest from Winter Park, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in December, 2011 There was not one thing we did not enjoy about our stay. Everyone was very helpful and so nice. Great place to get away.
A guest from Columbia, IL does not recommend this property. Stayed for 7 days in October, 2011 Carpet in the villa was filthy. It made it very uncomfortable to feel like walking without shoes. There was black mold on all of the patio chairs and around tub in master. the thermostat in the home did not regulate the air well and some rooms were freezing and some hot. It was obvious that the unit had not been used much because it was not as clean as it could have been, dusty and had a musty smell. My family has allergies and asthma so it made it difficult for all of us.
James B. from Sunrise, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in August, 2011 stayed at the beach, rented a boat from Beach Road Watersports, did some fishing, tennis, cruised the waterways, tubing and rested at teh sandbars
A guest from ST PETE, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in May, 2011 Would like to see some upgrades on the bedding in the 3 bedrooms - needs something colorful and "beachlike" for this beautiful villa.
Allison M. from Riverview, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in April, 2011 the upstairs a/c was not working for the first two nights of our stay, but management handled the situation effectively
D. Clark S. from Sarasota, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in March, 2011 overall very pleasant. However, the small store "coconuts" which served everything from snacks to sports rental equipment was understaffed most of the time (I went for some ice cream and had to wait over 15 minutes while the person in front of me rented a golf cart)
A guest from SLINGER, WI recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in September, 2010 We have been repeat guests for a number of years. A great place for relaxation. You have a beautiful beach at your feet and wonderful sunset views all from your personal deck overlooking the ocean.
Relax and unwind on a private pristine beach resort
Nancy K. from Tampa, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in January, 2010 Even though it was cold, we had a fabulous time at the resort. A great place to unwind and spend time with family and friends playing games, reading, walking, fishing, shelling, watching gorgeous sunsets, and communing with nature. The hot tub was great on those cold nights. Our unit was beautiful, would definitely come back again, A great place to relax!!!
A guest from SEMINOLE, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in October, 2009 We return nearly every year, via our 30' boat. Your docks have always needed shore power, for our boat. This year, the low hanging utility wire, made "B" docks in-accessable, and there were lose dock boards on "B: dock.

I will pass on your comments to our dockmaster. I look forward to your next visit to Palm Island. DJ Cutler, Director of Hopsitality Operations

DONALD H. from ALLONS, TN does not recommend this property. Stayed for 8 days in June, 2009 I made reservations in march 2009 for a unit next door to family for June 24 to July 2 Managment checked in March makeing sure the unit I requested was open. I was told it was open. I Made reservation at that time. Put money down at that time. When I arrive 3 months later they put me at other end of property away from family.I will think long an hard befor I come back to Palm Island for what it cost I can go other places that will honor reservations made three months in advance.
Property Manager Response: Response from Palm Island Resort Dear Mr.Hough, Thank you so much for taking the time to respond to our surey. The villa you had requested is owned by a gentlemen who recently was placed in a wheelchair. It was necessary to do some renovations to that unit for his accommodation and I do apolize for the change. We look forward to your next visit. DJ Cutler, Director of Hospitality Operations
SHARON B. from TRINITY, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in June, 2009 Our group of 6-8 come to Palm Island every June to enjoy a getaway and relax. The condos are immaculate, well appointed and stocked with extras. The ocean view is amazing and only steps to the beach. The management staff is professional and helpful. Of note: the island is not a place to come if you are looking for exciting nite life. There is only one restaurant/bar and is quiet after dark. However, if you are looking for some r & r at the beach, long walks, or balcony partys with good friends, this is the place to come.
