Peaceful, beautiful, oasis, magical, immaculate, romantic. The service is prompt and efficient. There is a small restaurant and bar, but just as easy to bring your own groceries and play weekend gourmet. The beach is well maintained, shells galore, turtle nests and amazing sunsets. In summer, rent a cart. You'll need it!

I almost don,t want to write a review because I don't want people to know about it. Its the best kept secret. This was our 3rd trip to Palm Island. Such a fun and relaxing place. My favorite mini vacation spot. You feel like you are in your own beach house on your own island. Never crowded. The beach is... More

Been coming here since I was a boy of 5 now I bring my children. All depends on when you come. Great rooms private island, but the quality of food service has fallen is recent years. Then again you are on an island only accessible by ferry. This is a place you visit to get away from it all not... More

We have been going to Palm Island for over 13 years as a family. There are 28 of us now- brothers, sisters, mom, dad, and our children and their children. This place has gotten better. It used to be fair but there are definite improvements. We each get a room on the island and share each others lives for a... More

You can only get to Palm Island by ferry or boat. Check-in is at 4pm. We had a package with golf cart, kayak, and bike rental. They do not tell you that the golf cart rentals closes at 6pm, so if you want to explore when you get there, forget it if you don't arrive in the 2 hour window.... More

Got to the front door of the villa and found that one of the keys didn't work. When you would flush the toilet in the master bath the water would almost come over the sides and was very slow to complete it's cycle. Placed a call to front desk on Friday at 5:30 pm and received a voicemail. They called... More

We only stayed for one night , but absolutely loved it !! The resort was excellent and the lifestyle VERY relaxed and laid back. It would be a good idea to lay in some groceries because there is not any real retail on the island.

Great family retreat. Grocery shopping for all meals is essential. Golf cart rental is also key & a fun way to explore the island. Be sure to reserve your golf cart ahead of time on a busy weekend because they WILL run out. This is our 3rd year staying & we will 100% be back. This year we stayed in... More

We stayed last week in a 1 bedroom beach villa (3411) The property was very nice but the bedding on the king bed desperately needed to be updated. The sheets were almost see through. Also the cushions on the couch were full of holes. But everything worked the bathroom and kitchen were very clean. The weather and beach were very... More
