Location of the resort is good, right on the beach. Rooms and resort are a little dated but everything is clean. Pool is small and a LOT of people hang out around it and drink. Clearly a popular place to stay and I'd say the price was good for the area. The annoying part is that we were here diving,... More

Thank you for your comments about Palm Beach Shores Resort. We hope you enjoyed diving in Florida’s coastal waters teeming with colorful fish. Steps away from the beach the pool area’s tiki bar, exotic birds, and tropical landscaping make it a popular spot to relax and take in a beautiful sunset at the end of the day. However we are...

First the good.. right on the beach, staff was friendly. moderately priced restaurant on premise with decent food. Now the bad..$6 per day parking, which can be tight to find a spot during certain times of day. If you are paying to stay, I just do not understand why the charge. It seems excessive to me.In all the beach places... More

Thank you for your review of Palm Beach Shores Resort. We understand that the resort’s fees may seem excessive but its beachfront location in the exclusive Singer Island area is the reason the fees are necessary. All of the West Indies-style decorated rooms contain furniture that are under three years old and items are being replaced as needed, such as... More

I have read the reviews and seriously wonder if these people stayed at the same place that we did?!? We had a two bedroom, and were facing the ocean. Our room was spotless and we did not have one complaint! My room overlooked the parking lot, and I could not hear one thing through the window. Slept wonderfully each and... More

Hopefully you will find this report useful, we arrived at the resort very aprehensive having read some of the earlier reviews, we were checked in very quickly and found the desk staff very helpful, in fact during our two weeks there we found all the staff to be very polite and very helpful.

I have stayed at this resort 3 times as a trade off of another RCI property. The first stay was a real problem since they had us in a room overlooking the parking lot while construction was going on in the parking lot. The second time we stayed there we just missed an event called "Spring Bling" which was on... More

After convincing extended family that it was a better hotel than reviews claimed, I was embarrassed to find I was wrong! Rooms are clean but outdated. Spout fell off the wall in shower.

True this is classic timeshare- nothing fancy, but a great getaway to relax. As others have advised, avoid accepting the 'free lunch or breakfast' and you will not be subjected to the timeshare sales pitch. We had a nice suite with ocean and pool views. The PBSR website advises that they do not take room requests, but it is worth... More

After reading some of the other reviews, we knew ahead of time what to expect with the hotel staff in regards to being offered "free" things. They just put flyers under the door every day, and called once and left a message on our phone. If they ask you "when would you like your free breakfast" simply say you're too... More

Watch out for this property. We have stayed there for 11 years because we bought a time-share when they first became available because we had nearby realatives living around Palm Beach.
