This August my husband I had the pleasure of staying at the boutique hotel "The Palms" in Ocean City on Fire Island. Right off the bat the staff was friendly and accommodating. After checking in, they supplied us with beach towels, chairs and an umbrella (they would have given us a wagon to carry it, but we brought our own)... More

Let's start by saying Carly and Ali are the BEST! This was our second year staying at the Palms and what a great place! We made a reservation for four nights in the same room as last year, but we received a fabulous upgrade, so we decided to stay a fifth day and wow was it worth it! The room... More

When writing this review I realized everything is relative. I have to believe that some of the negative reviews came from people that just don’t understand what Fire Island is all about. Let me start off by saying Ocean Beach is a completely relaxed atmosphere where jeans and T-Shirts are more like formalwear and the only time you want to... More

Stayed here over Labor Day weekend. It was fantastic! Room was clean, modern, comfortable and overall great. Honestly could not find anything to complain about if I tried. They even sent emails to all guests warning that a rain storm was coming and we might have a tv interruption. Also they provided rain ponchos! The staff was welcoming and gracious.... More

So we arrived here to realize that there are many different locations some a block away. The web site does not make that clear at all. So, after getting here I realized that I have a lot of minor issues that add up to a so-so experience. As many people have said the rooms are small - no big deal.... More

We had a very small room, which was OK, but the curtain rods fell down on us, one window was unscreened, and there was no coffeemaker or any cups of any kind. The window shades didnt adjust, and during the bed turn down, the person took all our towels and didnt replace them. I expected better. We had to call... More

I had the pleasure to stay at the Palms this August for a girls beach getaway. Definitely not your typical Fire Island Hotel. While staying at the Palms you are surrounded by luxe furnishings, courteous and helpful staff, impeccably clean rooms and grounds, a "step & repeat" to feel like a celeb, everything you need for the beach (chairs, towels,...

The Palms Hotel on Fire Island is pure luxury in the quaint town of Ocean Beach. Their properties and accommodations are so comfortable, well appointed and spotless. I try to get there every summer for the comfort and relaxation that each member of their spectacular staff provides. My recent stay in The Battery Park Suite was glorious..like condo living, overlooking... More

This hotel exceeded our expectations once again. We vacationed here with another family and stayed in the presidential suite. We were extremely satisfied with the accommodations and highly recommend staying here with bigger groups. The suite was clean, spacious, and the location is perfect! The staff was very attentive and friendly. We are looking forward to our stay next summer.... More

We have just returned from a wonderful two days on Fire Island at the Palms Hotel. We were able to stay at The Chelsea Cottage and it was fabulous. The staff was delightful,friendly and so accommodating. We were treated like royalty and can't wait to go back again. Thank you Karly for making this all possible. The Palms Hotel is... More
