I met friends here and we stayed for the week. One of the couples brought their boat, and the facility has a marina. We spent the mornings and evenings on the beach outside the villas, and the day time out on the boat, traveling north and south along the gulf shore. The staff was spectacular - friendly and helpful.

Want a quiet place to walk the beach, collect shells and watch dolphins. Here it is! You can sit by the pool or play some tennis...or just read a book. A quiet private island that requires you to get there by ferry, then park that car and ride around in a golf cart...There is only one restaurant on the island...but... More

Can't say enough on how we love this place! We've been coming here since 1994! A close to home paradise with no cars allowed so if you have young children you don't have to worry. They do have transportation if you feel the need, bikes & golf carts for rent. You can fall asleep to the sounds of the waves... More

My husband and I stayed at this resort from Thursday to Sunday to celebrating my 45th bday. Our unit was pretty close to the beach acess ane the pool. The unit had everything we needed and the beach was clear water and calm oceans. We were able to find several shark teeth on the North side of the island. This... More

The positives: Generally quiet, condos are well stocked, it is fun to drive a golf cart around, the staff is pleasant The negatives: Once you are on the island, you are largely stuck on the island. You have one free pass a day on the car ferry, after that, plan on dishing out $55/ trip that you make. This fact... More

Was fortunate enough to spend 4 days here for a wedding and so glad I had the chance to see what Palm Island is all about. It certainly not sure easy to get to with the nearest airports a bit of a distance away but so worth it once you get there. The property is comprised of individual villas that... More

Palm island is such a gem. My grandparents discovered the island 22 years ago and owned several units over the years. They are both in heaven now, but i know they would love to know that their grandchildren and great grandchildren still vacation here and LOVE it. If you are looking for quiet, peace and beauty...a laid back island vacation... More

This is our third trip to Palm Island and it has never disappointed us. We brought our kids and granddaughter for our 40th. anniversary. The three bedroom ocean front condo was a perfect size but a little worn. The pool was a perfect temperature and next door to our condo. We used the gas grill to cook the fish we... More

We rented two wonderful condos, a two bedroom for our daughters family of 5 and a 1 bedroom for my husband and myself. It was a shame our condo was so beautiful since we hardly spend any time there...only to sleep and shower! The two bedroom was spacious and only steps down to the pool and grill area. We had...

Yesterday the four of us had the crazy notion to walk 5 miles along the windy beach from Little Gasparilla Island to Palm Island to get ice cream cones at Coconuts. The cones were delicious. Our feet were tired. Spirits were a little low. We found Walt at the front desk and asked him if he knew of any local... More
