I do not even know where to start! It was a much anticipated girls weekend that we have been planning since winter. Everyone coming in from all over the US. Sounds fun right?? Lets start with lighting: Every light fixture had 1 bulb, these were chandeliers with 1 bulb! That is one way of keeping the lighting low so you... More

I was so excited for a relaxing weekend away w friends only to be turned into a terrible experience. Upon arrival our room had dirty towels on the floor from a previous stay, holes in the screen windows, and very poor lightening. We figured we would brush it off. Until the disasters continued... Septic backed up, a total of 4... More

Billing itself as a boutique hotel, The Palms Fire Island takes "boutique" quite literally [the word comes from the Greek "apotheke" meaning "storehouse"]. Consider yourself stored in one of the Palms' petite guestrooms. Space is sparse (& steep too) on magical Fire Island, so you could probably do much worse than The Palms', where complimentary use of bicycles, beach chairs,... More

I really hate to have to write a review like this but when the experience was as bad as ours, I feel like I have no choice. We arrived for our stay at about 1 pm on Sunday July 26, 2015. Check in is at 4 pm so we checked our bag with Leo and had a nice lunch at... More

We had a wonderful girls weekend planned but our trip was ruined due to to lack of sleep. We stayed 2 nights & were unable to sleep either night due to the loud partying going on in the patio area!!! Our room had dirty towels under the sink from previous guests!! The light fixtures were missing light bulbs. Super expensive... More

The hotel was very accommodating and Leo was especially helpful everyday with everything to getting chairs towels, umbrellas and wagons ready for the beach. He always made sure we had cold waters and even helped us set up on the beach! The rooms are small but pretty. Going back with my husband after all the kids go back to college!... More

How could you not love staying here. I've been here for a week now. My second time visiting the Palms. The owners and staff could not be more accommodating and welcoming. I was in the lobby having a coffee when the lady who wrote the terrible stay review was complaining and demanding her money back and guess what they gave... More

Two years ago my friends and I stayed at the Palms to celebrate a friends upcoming wedding and had such a nice time that we decided to book again this year for a girls only weekend. The location can't be beat and the service is amazing. From the moment we arrived, Leo was extremely helpful. He took all of our... More

Upon checking in, we stayed in the Upstairs suite. There were used towels in bathroom, only one light per chandelier. Blinds that did not cover the windows. The floor in the shower was filthy. The guests below were so loud that we were unable to get sleep until they finally called it a night at 4am. This happened on Saturday... More

Blaine is the best front desk person I have come across! Very pleasant and competent! James is also the best. He is so nice. You would think that these two young people own the hotel in the pride that they take in there job. Not many options on fire island. Rate is steep. Don't use anyone other that James or... More
