When you pay a lot, you expect a lot. Little Palm Island is not cheap, but the service, personal attention, food and accomodations were outstanding. Every meal we had was top quality, well prepared and more than generous in serving size. The smoked salmon with breakfast was the finest I have ever eaten. Because of the small, intimate nature of the resort, the staff get to know you quickly and can really cater to your needs and desires. Everyone was very nice and met all our requests with a prompt response. The deer and native birds added to the beautiful surroundings of the palm trees and mangroves. Activities were plentiful, or you could be pampered in the spa (the most beautiful, comfortable spa I have seen), or just relax in isolation in your very well out-fitted bungalow.
My wife and I stayed there for our 15th anniversary and we were amazed at the level of service. The day we arrived, we happened to pick up a travel magazine that had just come out and named Little Palm Island as the most romantic resort in Florida. It was easy to see why they won that designation. It was great.
