January Three Day Holiday
Palm Island is very unique ... very relaxing. Our unit was in a great location .. close to the restaurant and other facilities. I would definitely rent this unit again if we visited Palm Island.
Taylors, SC, United States
Overall our experience was very good. We utilized a "Living Social" offer for this vacation which seemed very reasonable. The unit was very nice, well decorated, and nicely located to services, restaurant, and beach. We were pleasantly surprised at the quality of the restuarants and the reasonable pricing. The beach shelling was better than Sanibel! The inclusion of use of the ferry and water taxi was a plus as well. Our deal included rental of a golf cart for our stay and a half day rental of a kayak. One of our kayaks was in pretty bad shape and lacked foot pegs, a seat cushion and the seatback adjustment straps were broken, which made seating position and rowing uncomfortable. This was the only negative in our visit. Palm Island Resort was a very good find for us. Keep up the good work!
Palms River, NY, United States
Could not have been more satisfied. Although we had traveled less than 50 miles from our Fort Myers to get there we felt as if we were a thousand miles away. Great accommodations, great beaches, very good restaurants. We definitely plan to return.

Home Away From Home
My wife and I have come to Palm Island for years, and it never disappoints. We have stayed in this particular unit twice, and it is our favorite one-bedroom. Light, airy, and inviting. Very relaxing, even for just a weekend . . . but you'll want more.

Palm Island Resort
One of the best beaches in Florida and not crowded at all. Perfect spot for R&R.; Quality of food at restaurant mediocre.

Weekend on Palm Island
The perfect place to have a lovely weekend to destress, soak in incredible beauty and plan for a return trip the following year. Great accommodations, beach, reservation process, restaurant, and seashells!!

If you want to unwind and relax this is the perfect place. Its just the beach and you, thats it!! Not very many activities

Great Place to Stay, but Don't Eat the Food
This is the second time that we've been to Palm Island and we love it for it's relaxation and beauty. The villa we stayed in last year was fabulous. This year, it seemed like the villa had not been updated in quite some time. The shower doors didn't close right, we were told we would have a large tv, and the one in the unit we had was smaller than the one we have in our bedroom at home. The only bad experience we had on either of our visits was in the restaurant. Last year I had fish for dinner one night and it was bad. I don't mean that it just tasted bad, it was spoiled. The woman at the table next to us said she had gotten sick on the same fish the night before. On this trip, we had pizza one night from the restaurant, and it tasted worse than a frozen pizza. We tried one more time the next night and my salad was full of brown lettuce, my husband had wings and potatoe skins. The wings were good. The celery that came with the wings actually had dirt on it. The potatoe skins were overcooked and had hardly any topping on them. Our experience on the island was great, but just don't eat the food.

Great Get Away
It was a very good mini get away
Cape Coral, United States
Be sure to rent a golf cart.
This is a great place with a whole different feel from mainland Florida. Once you park your car, there are no cars allowed in the resort and it's quite large and spread out. A golf cart is necessary if you want to get the most out of your stay.
We reserved a cart but when we checked in there was no record of it to be found. The carts were sold out and we were never able to obtain one. We felt we were unable to enjoy it to the fullest and had to depend on the staff to shuttle us around. It's not pleasant to wait around for a ride when you have limited time to spare. A cart for each unit should be included with an option to decline instead. They are part of the experience if you want to experience the whole property.
Orlando, FL, United States
very relaxing atmosphere. The beach was amazing. Biggest shells we have ever seen and plenty of them. Very good food at Rum Bay Restaurant. Overall extremely satisfied.

Best visit EVER
This was our 13th visit to Palm Island in 12 years. No matter what else we do for vacation, if we don't have our time at Palm Island we haven't really had a a vacation. It is our most favorite place in the world. It is BEAUTIFUL, PEACEFUL, and a "little bit of Heaven on earth!" To say we love this place is an understatement!!!!!
Fort Myers, FL, United States
Thanks and we will be back!
This was our 13 year coming and we love it! The coconuts staff was top notch this years. The guys were all very friendly. Everything is just perfect, except, the food could be better at Rum Bay.

Adequate, but outdated
Stayed for one night on the mainland prior to moving to the island resort. Condo looked out to the marina but was the end unit next to the parking lot so it wasn't a great view. A little disappointing since we have been frequent guests of the island resort and I thought we would get a better room. Unit itself was very adequate, but the furnishings are very dated. Unit was very clean. It was an o.k. stay but I would probably choose the Hampton Inn in Venice as we have in the past when arriving early for an island stay. For us it was convenient since we were launching a boat the next morning--by the way, the Marina people are super! I have thought of the mainland part of the resort as a less expensive long term (month) location for winter, but have nixed that idea. By the way, Johnny Leverocks still has lousy food. Except for being nearly the only restaurant around I don't know how it stays open. All in all, I rate the mainland condos as just o.k.

Best beach in SW Florida
We have been to Palm Island several times before and the area never disappoints. It is one of the few resorts I've been to where you can walk a beautiful beach and feel you are the only one there. Outstanding for wildlife-sea birds, turtles, manatees, dolphins. Water is clean and crystal clear. Shelling is great. The beach is never crowded. Boating and fishing the best. The pool area is nice, but a few umbrellas for shade would be great for those really hot days. Our unit was nicely decorated but the furnishings are showing their age and should be updated soon. You could live on the porch with its beautiful view. Kitchen was good, and had everything we needed. For a one bedroom condo, it was well layed out. We ran out of clean linens but they were replaced promptly with a call to housekeeping. Rum Bay restaurant's food is improved but still not great-the night we ate there the carpeting was dirty with food spills and service just ok-decor is tired. Lots of room for improvement and we would have eaten there more if the food had been better. Johnny Leverocks is just plain bad. Don't waste money there. People at the marina are super. You will need to rent a golf cart to get around the resort since cars are all parked in a central lot. That's a hidden cost-the only alternative is walking-there are no shuttles except at check-in and check-out. All in all, you can find a more upscale experience in terms of accomodations at other resorts-the Palm Island units need updating-but they also don't cost as much as some other places. The resort is mostly about finding a quiet, peaceful, beautiful place to enjoy the ocean. If frills and nightlife are important to you, this might not be the right place for you. Taking everything into consideration I still give Palm Island Resort top marks.

Great Island Getaway
Truly enjoyed Palm Island. Great place to escape, relax and renew!
While we only stayed one night, this was a great getaway for us. The beach and palm tree views from the well decorated villa and gulf breeze were calming. The beach was pristine and different from ours only 30 minutes away--lots more shore birds and good shelling.I found dozens of fossil shark's teeth to replenish my giveaway jar for visitors. After a cookout on gas grills, the hot tub and pool were a relaxing way to end the evening. We found we really didn't need a golf cart. Everything was close and we enjoyed walking to the pass along the beach. There were games and books for longer stay visitors and families, activities, kayaking, and you can bring your fishing gear or rent some. The staff were all very pleasant and welcoming. The carpet in our unit was on it's last legs but clean. There was a bit of mold in the caulking of the tub, but it's Florida. I have the same problem at home. What a great place for vacation with children who enjoy the beach. We plan to come back again.
total relaxation amongst beauty
loved the island.
A little piece of heaven
We have been to this resort several times. Some units are more updated than others. The resort staff has always been very professional. We did encounter some issues this time, however, not enough to keep us from coming back. Overall a great little escape for relaxation and some quiet.

Relaxing Get away
Our stay was excellent until the last night. The peacefulness was distrubed by a group of 200 college students renting some villas. They were noisy and making disturbance well after midnight. These type rentals are not consistent with what one expects from this type of property. Had this happended the first night we would have been very unhappy and requested a refund. This will be a consideration in the future in our decision to return and it is something we would tell any friends wanting to consider the location.

This was my third...
This was my third visit to Palm Island. I was a bit dissapointed as I did ask for an upgraded unit. My first visit was not an upgrade. My second visit was an absolutly beautiful upgraded unit with granite kitchen counters, all updated furnishings and spotless. Now, this third visit, was just OK. I was a bit disappointed as the resort was extremely empty so I would think you would of been able to upgrade units to just keep your patrons returning.
We had a relaxing stay at Palm Island and wish we could have stayed longer. We purchased the couples weekend retreat and enjoyed the the chilled lobster picnic. Staff was not on the same page with how the picnic worked or the water taxi. When the reservation was made they told us to pick it up at so and so time. Went to get the picnic and they had tried to deliver it to the villa. Was told when we were done with the picnic to call and they would pick everything up, when we called, the staff member said we had to take it back to the restaurant. We also made a reservation to take the water taxi to Leverocks. When the taxi arrived he said he would not be able to bring us back that it would be to late? When we finished eating dinner we watched the water taxi take a couple back? So we took the car ferry over.
Those were our to little gripes. The villa was very clean and quiet. The beach is great, hardly a soul. Millions of seashells to pick up on the beach. Sand dollars still in the water. All kinds of birds. We also saw a manatee and its calf when exploring one of the docks.

Hot, Dusty, & Snakes
Extreem heat made for an unpleasant stay.
Unit was old but clean. Sat on chair an
felt a lump. It was a filthy hair brush
behimd the back pillow. Maids obviously
do not check furniture when cleaning.
We booked a 2 bedroom and was put in a 1
bed. Front desk said person who took my
reservation had been fired. Never received a conformation email or I would
have caught the mistake before we arrived.
Tried to walk to pool but golf carts passing by kicked up so much white dust
I could not breath. You have to spend $50 a day to rent a cart or you cannot get around in the summer. Heat and dust are too great. Someone picked me up in their cart and a yellow snake crossed our path. Thank God I was not walking there. I saw two snakes in the path in the short time I was there. No cars are allowed on the Island (which is nice) but forces you to walk everywhere or rent carts.
Patricia & William S.
Very Nice Surprise
As a rule for over thirty years we have always stayed off the Gulf in the Redington Shores area so coming to this region was a new experience. Unfortunately it rained throughout the whole visit but this didn't reflect on the actual resort's performance( good old mother nature). We loved it!
Great family get-a-way!
Palm Island was the perfect weekend get-a-way for our family! We can't wait to plan another trip back! It is close enough to home yet gives you the feeling of being far away from everything.
LINDA S.'s review of Beach Villa One bedroom Ocean View
My family has been going to Palm Island for over 20 years, and we always have a wonderful time. The property is simply lovely, and the people who work at the resort are great. This past visit was to celebrate my 25 wedding anniversary, and everything was perfect. The only problem was that the vacation had to eventually come to an end, and it is very very sad to leave. Thanks for all the years of enjoyment.
IT'S NOT HEAVEN BUT YOU CAN SEE IT FROM HERE
Please do not tell anyone about this wonderful getaway. It's like being on your own private Island. From the beautiful beach to the lush tropical palm trees and floral surrondings. The staff are like old friends from the moment you arrive. In fact we loved it so much we bought a villa of our own the second day we were there. Remember keep it a secret!
bill g.'s review of Beach Villa One bedroom Ocean View
The stay was perfect in all regards except one. When we checked in Friday afternoon we heard construction going on in the unit below the one we were renting. This ended about Friday evening at 6 pm, however it started up again Saturday morning at 8 am and lasted until about 5 pm that afternoon. I understand that maintenance must be performed, but the non-stop hammering and sawing definitely hampered the peace and serenity we were looking for on Palm Island. Staff was understanding, but couldn't really help. There were many positive memories throughout our stay alongside this major disruption. Had I known that we would have such a racket right below us for over half our stay, I would not have chosen Palm Island for this engagement weekend with my fiancee.

Best weeks of our lives
Our second husband of 30 years and I spent one of the best weeks of our lives on your special island. It was like our own private resort. I loved Rum Bay's food, loved playing tennis...and of course looked forward every night to the gorgeous sunsets.

4th of July 2008
My husband and I visited Palm Island in 2002 for a 3 day weekend and truly enjoyed it. This time we met some friends and took our duaghter. We truly enjoyed our weeklong stay this time as well. The children frolicked in the sand and surf and truly enjoyed the walks on the beach; both day and night while being mindful of the nesting turtles and other wildlife. We enjoyed wonderful weather, magnificent sunsets and peaceful nights by the beach. We witnessed abundant nature, whether by land, air or sea; bunnies, egrets and dolphins. The flora was abundant, varied and beautiful. However, I was extremely surprised and a bit disappointed that an island, which would like to remain pristine in nature, thought and philosophy does not participate in a recycling program. I thought that was a bit of an oxymoron, but do hope that a recycling program is in Palm Island's immediate future plans. Thank you!
Response from Palm Island Resort - 07/21/2008
Thank you very much for your comments. We have been trying to coordinate our waste management to handle our recycling, but they will not, at this time, pick more than combined trash. This has been a very frustrating process for us and for me personally. I believe that we need to maintain our resources for our future. Please know that it is my wish as well. I appreciate your concern and I will continue to pursade our company to go "Green". I look forward to your next visit! DJ Cutler, Director of Hopsitality Operations.

A Sun Drenched, Sand Swept,Salt Water Adventure
We traveled extensively before the kids were born. As the kids grew they developed a love for travel and exploration as well. Now that we found Palm Island if the kids wish to discover new places they may have to do that more on their own because we are staying here! We love the laid-back feeling. Each day brings new discoveries rather than planned manicured experiences. We are considering buying a lot and building. It truly is a national treasure.

Alison R.'s review of Beach & Gulf Villa at Palm Island Resort w
I absolutely LOVE Palm Island and have been coming to the island since I was a child. My favorite thing about Palm Island is that it is not overrun by tourists. It is pristine and secluded which allows me to completely relax.
The only negative is the food at Rum Bay. I wish the quality was better.
